OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Recommended Posts

I have less than 3 months to go and my emails are being responded to extremely slowly (once every few weeks). 

I have yet to discuss any details with them, I confirmed my date long time ago but since then there has been little communication! 

should I worry or this is normal?

More like once a month. And they constantly request the same information I have already sent them but never answer my questions to them.

When are u getting married?

Hey guys! Anyone interested in sharing a photographer? I'm getting married November 20th (at Akumal Beach) If you are withing 5 days of this, and are interested in sharing the costs...let me know! :)


Also, I'm looking at ordering some maracas for my wedding. Anybody have any ideas on where I can order them? I'd prefer to order them ahead of time to a place down there, so I don't have to bring them down with me, and pay shipping etc...

 

Looking at probably needing 90 maracas (so 45 sets)...and would like them personalized (nothing special just our names and date)

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

thanks :)

My wedding coordinator is Gina. And I haven't gotten any responses since her first email July 27.

I finally got a response from Maria answering most of my questions. I want the private reception by the pool which was said to be $60 a person. We have 90 people so  it adds up to be quite a bit but I still prefer it this way rather than having dinner and reception at different spots. And I was told I had to pick one main course for everyone so now this way everyone gets to choose from a variety set up. We chose the BBQ menu. 

 

I did ask her what the options are in case of rain, so waiting to hear back regarding that.

hi 

 

I'm getting married in less than 2 weeks.  i just wanted to know about the vows for the legal wedding  i would like the "hands ceremony vows" which is ;

 

 

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever.

These are the hands that will work along side yours as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief temporarily comes your way.

 

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will give you support and encouragement to chase down your dreams.

These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

These are the hands that will lift your chin and brush your cheek as they raise your face to look into eyes that are filled with overwhelming love for you.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

do you think its possible to have that ?

It is possible to have it, however it will most likely have to go after the official ceremony (done in Spanish).  And you'll want to have a family member read it so your guests can understand it.

So, another user sent me the 2015 packages and I've been tentatively planning what we want so we can budget accordingly. I have a couple of questions just to clarify what is written in the packages, as it doesn't look like the 2014 packages that I received earlier this year.

 

Speaker with microphone (cord to connect a mobile) 70 USD/hr ---- is this the setup for using an iPod instead of the DJ, or is it literally just the microphone and speakers for speeches etc?

 

Live Music - at wedding ceremony or a private dinner (included in unforgettable package) - If we're using recorded music during the ceremony would they play during the toast after the ceremony?

    • 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.
