  1. Sorry for he delay in responding. Timelines...wedding at 4pm, pictures from 4:30-5:30, 5:45 transport to Gran Tortuga, Dinner at 6pm and pool side reception from 8-11. We went with the bar service only (this was a last minute decision and a great one!) We didnt hire a DJ because we had brought an ipad docking station. It worked for us! Makeup was not done at the spa...thank GOD! I really dont have any nice to say about the spa and my hair fiasco! Any more questions...let me know!
  2. My Review - sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Feb 16-23, 2012 Stayed at Tulum (Diamond), married at Tulum gazebo Emails between myself and Jasmine were always delayed however as you near closer to your date, responses do come quicker. The pre-meeting with Jasmine is where you will confirm all your details. This is also the time to give her your music and any decorations needed. She is very attentive to your needs and wants. Got my hair done at the Bahia spa...what a nightmare! The lady was 20 minutes late, didnt turn on curling iron for another 15 minutes and proceeded to play with my hair. Until I told her to move it, she did but thats where the nightmare began. None of the curling irons worked so she would use a flat iron to attempt to curl it. She also sprayed it with "protection" that made my hair sizzle and smoke...she blew the smoke away! As my resilence quickly faded, bridezilla came out. Not sure what see could not understand about "curly, curly, curly" and "grande, grande, grande" AND "mucho, mucho, mucho" yet she seemed determined to flatten my hair and stick it tight to my head. While screaming...I attempted to fix my own hair (while holding back from swatting her), I eventually stormed out! Got back to my room just bawling, only to see my wedding flowers and that put a smile on my face until I discovered my hair flower was missing (it was at the spa!!!!!). Yes, the spa ladies did bring my flower (although I understand they were quite scared to come into my room). Back to the flowers, the email Jasmine sent me was awful. I sent her a picture of the flowers I wanted and she came through 200%. I was SO happy with them. The ceremony was wonderful (although I dont remember too much as it goes so fast!). The script I gave for the ceremony was used 100%. Pictures through Arreclife (sp) were ok...we seemed rushed and some of his poses were a little cheesy. But i did land up with a few awesome ones! Dinner was at Gran Tortuga. It was ok but didnt compare to the Mikado or Fruito del Mar (sp) seafood. The cake was beautiful and very tasty. We decided to have a cocktail reception around the pool and we supplied the music. It was great and beautiful! Our room was beautifully decorated on a few occasions...having to clean up rose petals once is ok but 3 times? All is all it was wonderful! Sorry for the short review I would be happy to answer questions.
