OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

obviously it's best to double check with your wedding coordinator, but here's my take:

 

  • That is the cost per hour for you to not have a DJ.  So a speaker and microphone for speeches and then the speaker hooks right to your iPod for music.
  • Honestly, the toast is about 15 minutes and so I don't think that'd be a good use of the live music.  It's much better during the meal and I have seen it done in the restaurants and not just the private poolside receptions (it's shown in my latest destination wedding pictures on my blog).

Will they let you do the music during the meal if you're doing the semi-private instead of private?

The wedding I just photographed in May had the music during the meal at the Arlequin restaurant and it was not private.  So I know that they have done it in the past.  It's worth asking.

I got the same thing for restaurants. Kind of disappointing.

Those are the standard restaurants that are offered if you're getting married at Akumal.  Always have been. lately they've been allowing Arlequin to be an option, but not openly. 

For my wedding, they refused... but that was 6 years ago.  That's why I had a private BBQ option by the pool.

Hello everyone!!!

 

My name is Kate and I am getting married in November at the Akumal section of the Grand Bahia Principe. Like all of you I have a lot of questions and not a lot of them are getting answered by our wedding coordinator. I know there are kind of last minute sometimes but I just can't wait and I was wondering if some of you would be able to help me???

 

Here is a FEW questions I have:

 

 

#1:  At the Arlequin restaurant, what kind of table is it? (round or rectangular) with how many people at each table??

#2:  Is there chair cover at the restaurant?

#3:  I would like to have center pieces/center table on each table, is it possible? What could I do or make? Do they  have vases or glasses that I could use for that? Flowers?

#4:  Could I put some candles on each table at our wedding dinner? Do we have to bring our own candles or do they have some?

#5:  Would it be possible to have Sky lantern (paper lantern) that we would light and make them fly close to the beach?? (We would like to give one to each person at our wedding so we could light them and send them awayas a "good luck" wish)

#6:  Is it possible to make a Power Point with pictures during the dinner or at the after party (beside the pool)?

#7:  For the wedding ceremony, is it possible to have a white carpet for the bride to walk?


Thank you so much for trying to help me and I guarantee I will do the same if I can.

 

Cheers

 

Kate

Hi, @@katou! I can't answer all of your questions, but the resort rents out a projector, so you should be good for the powerpoint, but I believe you may need your own laptop and possibly cables as well. Also, I have never seen anyone on this forum say that they were allowed to use Sky Lanterns, it sounds like they're banned pretty much everywhere.
