Leaving in less than a week. Did anyone worry about the dj not having any of your "must play" songs? Should I compile a must play and a do not play list for the dj?

Me again :)  I"m wondering for any past brides, what kind of a room upgrade did you receive? We will have our 2 kids with us and we are hoping for a room/suite with a bedroom so when our sitter is there at night the boys won't be disturbed and vice versa. the hotel knows we have the kids and the agent has put in some requests but i'm wondering if anyone has stayed at Tulum in a suite or something like it? Thanks ladies!

I may be mistaken, but I don't think the GBP has any suites with separate bedrooms.  Can anyone confirm?  The suites have extra space in them with a couch and sitting area, but no separation as far as privacy or sound.

Well, I am freaking out. Despite asking repeatedly, I was just told NOW, 24 hours before departure, that the resort does not supply a symbolic wedding certificate. WTF? I asked like three times and each time she just deflected or said the minister will supply it, to which I kept replying that we are bringing our own minister so I need to know if they supply one. 

 

Any ideas where I can find a symbolic certificate on a super short timeline?

The internet would be my only thought. Not sure a commissionaire in Canada would as they do legal marriages. My guess is the internet would be the best bet. Ours was very basic. I could take a pic of it for you. So weird they wouldn't have anything. Congrats that your time as come. I hope it's all you've dreamed of and more. Please come back with an update and pics.

So they supply a Symbolic certificate if you use their minister, but not if you bring your own?  Really not good that they just relayed this information to you now - but I guess it is better than finding out when you arrive at the resort.

 

I'm curious to know, if the resort does supply the Symbolic certificate if you use their minister, what the symbolic certificate looks like in comparison to the legal one if anyone is willing to share!

I ended up finding someone on Etsy who can do one up in a few hours, then I just have to hope that I can get it printed on thick stock paper in time!
