UK brides GBP??

Recommended Posts

Hi Jemma!

I live in the uk as well.We just got married in Gran bahia principe coba,Mexico,

The best desicion ever made and the best money ever spent.There is great thread on the forum although now is quite long but I remember reading when I starting planning my wedding and it was very useful specially because we all seem to have the same questions or concerns.

We booked with Thomas cook sputhampton and everything was great.

I am trying to figure out how to post pics and I will post a long review during the weekend.

anything I can help with let me know.

Hi sposa & Jemma


We have just booked the GBP Mexico for our wedding March 13.  What did you both do about photo's? I think the hotel ones are really expensive and hubby to be is having a fit over the price!!!!!! Do you know if you can get an outside photographer in?


The other things are the documents, TC Trip adviser and this site all say different things (dont want to waste money having documents translated etc if i dont need them all done)

Hi everyone


I'm from the UK too! We have decided on GBP for our wedding. I have found Thomas Cook to be the cheapest so far (we are looking at Oct 13). Still waiting for wedding brochure from the resort (6 days and counting...I'm impatient haha). I will be booking my wedding directly with the hotel, not through the TA.


Just thought I'd mention this thread, which has more or less told me everything I need to know:




RE photographer: I found this -


"Local outside photographers are NOT allowed, however you can fly in your photographer and have them stay at the resort as a guest."


I have heard mixed reviews about the photographer but it seems as though we do not have a choice. The prices are on the above link and I have to agree they seem quite expensive! They have a facebook page where you can view their work, and it all looks good IMO.


Good luck with the planning, keep us updated x

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
