OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Recommended Posts

DonnaandDaz that's good to know. My wedding is getting so close know & I just want to be sure I don't forget anything! It's almost 4 weeks now without a reply from Jazmin, it's hard not to get frustrated....

Same here. Not a word from her and our weddings are in less the 60 days. Getting pissed off :)

@@Shannonandangelina I hear you. Just getting Linda to confirm our location and time has been a nightmare. I ask questions and it's like she skims over the email and writes what ever she thinks relates to it. Even my travel agent can't believe the communication. Aaarrrrggghhh

Just need to stay positive. Everything will be fine :)

Linda was great at replying to my emails but when she assigned Jazmin a month ago all communication stopped! I don't know whether I should pick up the phone & call them or get my TA to do it.

Hi was woundering if anyone has had or seen it at GBP riviera maya at any location, a chandelier as decoration on the chuppah? Also can the hotel put a chuppah on the Tulum beach location site? Thank you x

@@CatrinaMcG  Thank you again so much for sending those prices.  They finally sent the 2016 prices through and they're pretty much the same from what I've seen so far.

 

I think there is just a lot on Linda's plate and she's confusing us with some other couples.  When I say beach, she says gazebo.  When I say the 30th she replies confirming the 29th.  It's super frustrating because you don't hear back for a couple days as well... the last email I got had 2 out of 3 things correct.  My TA sent her another email to confirm so hopefully the next email will be the final one.

Thank you for the info... very well done!

I'm getting married in Aug 2015 at GBP Tulum and I have been searching for details and I came across yours... very helpful :) I know there may be some differences now but, this is a start until I hear back from the WC.

How was the communication during the planning process??

It seems that 3-4 days are going g by without a response.... Makes me a bit nervous. I'm sure all will work out so, I don't stress. Lpl

Thanks again

I have to say I love this resort but I almost wish I had chosen to have my wedding somewhere else.

 

Getting responses from Linda is the most frustrating thing Ive ever had to deal with. The other day she sent me the packages again like it was the first time I was contacting her and my wedding has been booked for 6 months!

 

Now I am trying to get the resort salon booked. What a nightmare.

 

My worst fear is that nothing will be organized or ready when I get there. Linda reply's from multiple email addresses so I dont even know anymore!!

 

Can anyone confirm what the ceremony is like for a symbolic wedding? I still get someone to read the vows and everything correct?

I'm sorry it's so frustrating :(  I will say a VERY common theme among GBP brides is that when they return they say "try not to stress about the communication, everything is perfect once you get there."  

 

And I have been in your shoes and I hated it.  I am VERY type A and I like to plan.  So the communication was difficult, but it really was amazing once I got there. 

 

As for the symbolic ceremony, if you do not provide someone to read for you, they will provide an English speaking person to read your ceremony and vows.

Hello BTB,

 

I have just joined as we just booked our wedding to be held at GBP. We will be staying at the Tulum from Aug 3 - 19, 2015 and our wedding day is Aug 11, 2015 at 5pm. We have chose to have a beach wedding. After the ceremony we will do pictures prior to dinner. We are planning to arrange to go to Coco Bongo in Playa del Carmen for a night of dancing and entertainment. We will be booking the VIP area to have a more collective area for everyone to enjoy the night. We do have a smaller group so,

we wanted to do something a bit different.

 

I do have a few questions for you ladies if you would be kind enough to share...?

 

Are there any brides getting married in Aug?

 

Any advice/review on the mexican a la cart restaurant? Our theme is a mexican fiesta feel and thought it would be fitting.

 

Have you ladies had any issues with requesting a room upgrade with ocean view?

 

I have noticed that the package includes VIP privileges, any idea what this includes?

 

We don't expect to be treated differently, just curious more than anything.

 

We understand it's Mexico and things can be overlooked, but any advice would be appreciated

 

Here's a tip for all of those that are confused with documents needed for a legal ceremony:

 

If you have never been married then passports are only required.

 

If divorced/widowed than ladies you have to wait one year and you will need your paperwork in order 3 months in advance to the wedding date (divorce decree/death certificate). These will need to be translated by an official translator, bring to the Notary Republic (if not the original copy), legalized by Mexican Consulate and this all has to be done in Canada (for the GBP Resorts in the Mayan). You will have to do this as well for your birth certificate (long form not card size).

 

***This only has to be done if you wish to remarry with your maiden name and your passport has not been changed to reflect that revision***

 

***To make things easier on yourselves, save the added costs/headaches and get your passport changed back to your maiden name and then all you will need is your passport***

 

This is for the Grand Bahia Principe in Maya Riviera only. Each state in Mexico can be different and as well, each resort.

 

There is a lot of conflicting info on this and I thought I would help those needing clarification. Any questions feel free to ask me and I can keep it in layman's terms for you.

 

I hope this helps and I thank you guys for any help in advance.

 

Happy planning
