    Hi everyone is there anyone getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba.

     

    We are getting married there in April 14, 2012. 

     

    Our planning is going great Maria is amazing and gets back to us quickly some times. 

     

    We have had one problem and that being the resort photographer is not at all cheap and never returned any of my emails or facebook message. Even after Maria and Paloma contacted them still nothing.. So I started looking into bringing someone from home to do the pictures and found it is way cheaper then using the onsite photographers. 

     

    I have been to this resort 3 times now and love it there. I see us going every year. the staff is amazing and if your a VIP you get spoiled too.

    Hi Jen! Congratulations!

    I just returned home from photographing a wedding at the Coba, and it is definitely cheaper to fly in your own photographer.

    Here is the "official" thread that I have put together for the Gran Bahia. Emily2012 is getting married two days after you!  I believe she is planning on using the resort photographer, but you could discuss flying a photographer in together to save costs. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/75549/official-gran-bahia-principe-riviera-maya-thread/10#post_1663902

      Hi Jen,

      We are getting married at Coba as well, but not until March of 2013.  We decided to bring our own photographer with us as well.  We are paying approximately the same as the best package that the resort photographer charges, but we are getting way more images plus a trash the dress session.  I absolutely love her work, but I thought she would be too expensive to bring, but it wasn't the case.  I have not been to the Coba or any other Gran Bahia property.  We are going to the GBP in Jamaica at the end of February to check out their style.  Fingers crossed we are impressed because we already paid our deposit for the wedding!  

      Good luck...April is just around the corner.

      Katie
