    Hola !

     

    Getting married at  Gran Bahia Principe Tulum resort in April 2012! SO excited!
     

    We are debating on getting married on the beach (on the sand) or at the Gazebo.

    Reception is at 4pm and we have 46 guests.

     

    What are your opinions on both locations? One better than the other?

    How is the view from the Gazebo and could it seat 46 guests at the Gazebo (I saw pictures and the area looks small).

     

    Thanks !!!

    Desiree

    The gazebo at Tulum is really pretty, however it is secluded and not directly in view of the beach/ocean. Personally if I'm going all the way to Mexico for my wedding, I would much rather get married on the beach location! Sent from my iPhone 4 using Tapatalk

    By secluded I should clarify, it's RIGHT on the walking path by the Mexican restaurant, and rooms. It is NOT private to your party at all. I meant it is blocked from view of the beach by trees and such. Sent from my iPhone 4 using Tapatalk

    I just got back, and I took pictures for you!

     

    This is the view from the path that leads to the Tequila restaurant.  It leads to the weddings sites first.  On the left, the gazebo.  On the right, you can see the beach site.  yes, they are THAT close to each other.

    This is the view that your guests will have in their chairs of the gazebo, I literally pretended to sit in approx the fourth row and took a picture.  Notice, you can't see the sea:

    This is your guests view from the beach location:

    Let me know if you'd like to see anything else!

        Hey  Trisha .thanks for the pics! I think the beach is definitely the spot ! so beautiful and natural !!

         

        Emily, Congratulations...my date is April 5th...April is coming soon! 

        In terms of  any tips I guess at this point the best thing is to make sure you have mostly everything settled with  your coordinator (mine is Jazmin and she is great-we work really well together through email).

         

        I suggest you get your guest list and seating arrangements to her more than a month in advance at least.

        Also make sure to book your hair appointments at the salon. You coordinator can give you the details.

         

        Since you are  a busy mom just try not to stress too much.The coordinators are great and just keep in touch with them. They'll let you know what your missing.

         

        Congrats !

        desiree

            If you're already getting it done for you, how much more is it to do for your groom?  That way you're covered no matter what.
