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.
