Hey,

 

So I just want to say that this site is fantastic and loaded with useful information, thank you so much for everyones help so far.

 

I do have a question though,  I am getting married November 2013 at the GBP Akumal, as of now we really haven't done a whole lot of interacting with Eugenia our wedding coordinator, but recently I started talking to her about our photos.  Our close friends have a time share in the Mayan and said that they would come do our photos as our wedding gift, which I didn't think would be a big deal.  Eugenia said that we could get them a $90 day pass and they could come to the wedding but that they couldn't take our pictures because Arrecife Studio has exclusivity rights.  This feels like a complete ploy to get us to spend money on their overpriced and from what I've read, intrusive and poor quality photgrapher.  I told Eugenia that they can take their 10 photos but we never had any intention of going with their studio, and I wish I would have known from the begining that this was going to be an issue.  I have looked through all our booking e-mails and see no where where it says this, in all honestly the paperwork has been very broad.

 

Is there any way around this, and are they really going to stop our friends at our wedding from taking photos?

 

Thanks!

 

Sara

Hi, My name is Sara, my fiancé Mike and I are getting married at the GBP Akumal this November. We haven't talked to our wedding planner Eugenia much since we booked, so I decided to contact her about our photos. Our good friends have a time share in Mexico and as our wedding gift they offered to be our photographer. When I email Eugenia and told her she said they could come to our wedding using a $90 day pass but that the studio has exclusivity rights. I think this is a complete ploy to get us to spend money on their photographer, which we never had any intentions of doing. I have went through all of our emails fom booking until now and nothing told us we were locked to the resort studio. Our friends offering to do our photos was a big reason why we chose the Mayan. Is there any way around this? Are they going to stop them from taking our photos? Thanks for your help, Sara

Has anyone received the new pricing for the 2013-2014 wedding packages? I still haven't heard from Eugenia and we're just wondering how much they went up this year. Thanks!!!

Hiya

 

Not sure if you have been on the Bahia Principe Website - there are pretty good photos on there, these are the links with the 3 different locations, if you click on each of them then click on the photos in turn you are given a 360 degree view of each point - pretty good

 

http://www.bahia-principe.com/en/hotels/riviera-maya/resort-tulum/map - Tulum Gazebo wedding location is on the furthest right of this picture

 

http://www.bahia-principe.com/en/hotels/riviera-maya/resort-akumal/map - Akumal wedding location is roughly on the large beach area in front of the swimming pool that is on the left side of this picture. Coba is the area in the background - it is central and doesnt have it's own beach area

Good luck with your selection, we get married at Tulum Gazebo in 16 days time thewave.gif

Hi Lori,

 

Hope this helps. This is what Jazmin sent me for my wedding in November as well.

When I was there last the dock was destroyed by the hurricane, so I'm not sure how it was rebuilt (or IF it was rebuilt), but it definitely wasn't big enough to hold a wedding.  and it's REALLY REALLY REALLY crowded right there.  Lots of sunbathers and also lots of swimmers.

Hi girls! I'm getting married in February and have 80 people with deposits down!! So excited! Can't believe the turnout! I initially wanted to have a poolside dinner but now that I'm having so many people I figured there might be a chance we could rent out one of the restaurants. Does anyone know anything about this?

They will not allow you to rent out the restaurants, however with that many people, you'll fill a good portion of it so it might not be a problem anyways.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
