Gran Bahia Principe Coba Brides

Recommended Posts

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
