      Thanks a lot! Im guessing that when you book via thomas cook etc they just speak with the WC at the hotel. So thats why I was just thinking it would be better,quicker (and slightly cheaper) to cut out the middle man and just book direct with the hotel... hmm!

      Yes that is exactly the case.  Once you get planning the WC will be in touch directly and you can deal with things. 

       

      These are a note of some amazing and helpful thread/links

       

      "Post Your Wedding Date" http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/9132/post-your-wedding-date/657

       

      Brides (& grooms) can see who is getting married on dates close to them . It is handy too as some wedding parties have shared the cost of some vendors (photographers in particular)

      Anyone used Arrecife Photography at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal/Coba

      These are the links to each of 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

       

      Tulum Gazebo wedding location is on the furthest right of this picture

      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.

        Thanks for the reply Kirsten! 

         

        Just one more (for now) question.. Ive not seen anything on here about minimum amount of people to book a wedding, but on the hotel website it states minimum of 20 people per package. Im aiming at a small group of maybe 20 people, but with a good chance of people dropping out.. Would that mean they wouldn't go through with the wedding? I have read in here somewhere though of small groups of like 10 people getting married..

        Hi

        Your wedding will be fine, the cost is for minimum of 20.  Originally for ours there was only going to be myself, H2B and 6 guest - now we are myself, H2B and 19 guests (1 child hence the odd number. I booked the holiday for the original 8 and everyone else has booked their own.  x

          The pro for booking through a TA is that when you do book with them as a group, most companies give a gift back($1000) to you based  on how many people you have in your group....something to look into.

            how early did you send out save-the-dates...I haven't been able to book the resort yet due to it being too early yet. I wanted to send out my save the dates so that it gives people enough time to save or make arrangements, to come. Should I wait to send them out till I book the resort...or just do it?

              where does everyone stand on giving gifts to the guests that come to your destination wedding?  Like having a gift bag waiting in there room when they arrive....and what would you put into it?
