Gran Bahia Principe Tulum - May 2011

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I've been reading many threads and it's such a great help! I thought that I would start a page of my own!  Anybody else out there getting married at the Tulum site in May? I've been speaking to Karla but any advice from past and present brides would be greatly appreciated!

 

Right now, we've chosen to get married on the Tulum Beach.  We're also going to have the private poolside reception.  I don't know too much information about this reception.  Has anybody had experience with this?

 

What did you girls do about DJ's? Did most opt for ipod/speakers or did you hire the resort DJ?

 

Happy New Year everybody!

Hi Melmed,

Have you seen the thread called "Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!" http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/786/gran-bahia-principe-akumal-tulum-coba-post-here/3650#post_1527839  It has about 366 pages of discussions from brides getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum or Coba or Akumal.  I've been getting a lot of good information from there.

 

I'm getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum on June 11, 2011 at the gazebo.  I'm really excited!  Jazmin is my wedding coordinator.  We are planning to have dinner at Gran Tortuga (brazilian style), then we're having a poolside cocktail reception for 3 hours.  I booked DJ Julian from Mood Event Services weddings@moodevents.com.mx .  I think there might be a fee from the hotel for bringing in an outside vendor ($90 is what I heard from others), but I think it's gonna be worth it.  The resort DJ may be good, but I haven't been able to get any information about how many songs they may have in their collection or how good their sound equipment is.  So I'm going with Mood Event Services because they always answer my questions quickly and provide all the details I need to assure me that they're gonna do a great job.  Mood Event services has over 60,000 songs in their collection and they are always updating their sound equipment to make sure it is the best.  DJ Julian used to be the DJ at Senor Frogs in Cancun in addition to being a DJ at weddings, so he has a lot of good experience.  I met with him in person a couple of weeks ago, because he happened to be traveling to Houston where I live.  He is fluent in English, which is good for me and he's from Mexico so obviously he's fluent in Spanish.  My fiance is Mexican, so it's good for me that this DJ speaks both languages.  He's going to make the announcements in English and Spanish for us. 

 

I hope this information is helpful.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
