  1. You pay when you check out. We paid with MasterCard. My guess is they take all major credit cards,, but call your credit card company before and let them know you will be using it for charges in Mexico, otherwise they would likely freeze your account. That's what my bank told me anyway, so we called before our wedding.
  2. We used the wedding DJ app and it worked flawlessly. I would highly recommend it.
  3. We went through a travel agent and once we put our deposit down, Paloma Flores (she does the bookings) emailed him to ask about the wedding date and location. Our wedding was March 2014 but we had the location and time booked in February or March of 2013. After that, you won't hear from the resort until about 3-4 months before your date.
  4. Hey ladies! We got back from our wedding at the resort last Saturday, and holy crap, it was amazing! Here's some info: We got married at the Tulum gazebo and our coordinator was Jazmin. Two weeks prior I had tried to get ahold of her for some last minute questions but she didn't reply. When we met with her she apologized and said she got all of them and read them but wasn't able to reply (?? weird). Anyway, all was fine. We arrived on Saturday and met with her on Monday at Tulum, but we were actually staying in the Royal Golden part of Akumal. The resort is beautiful - huge but there's lo
  5. Hey ladies - we leave in exactly one week for our wedding trip. Getting very excited but also a little anxious - just want to make sure I have everything I need. Any last minute suggestions of what to bring with me aside from the obvious? I printed all the important emails I exchanged with Jazmin and the photo studio (where they said I just had to sign a paper at the meeting saying I didn't want them there). I've emailed both Jazmin and Paloma 3 times over the past two weeks and haven't heard anything back yet. I just wanted to know when our meeting would be when we arrive...should I just assu
  6. One of my guests wanted to know if the resort has shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc in the rooms and replenishes this as needed? I am assuming they do but wanted to confirm that with someone who has been to the resort before. For the ceremony, do they play music while your guests are coming and getting settled? I have a cd I'm bringing that includes a song for the bridesmaids walk, for me, for our signing and for when they pronounce us as married. Should I bring another cd with instrumental stuff for when the guests are coming though? Thanks!
  7. Did anyone have their dinner at Dolce Vita? Jazmin is suggesting we make a seating plan since we have quite a few guests. I asked her if we can put us and our wedding party together but she said we can't because they can only do up to 10 at a table. Wondering how they set the tables up so we can make a searing plan.
  8. I'm also wondering about processional and recessional songs...I think we might do something fun for afterwards like Jagged Edge "Let's Get Married". We like to dance...well, I do
  9. Hey ladies, for past and upcoming brides, did you do a seating plan for your guests? We have 60 coming and we are at Dolce Vita for the dinner. Also has anyone had a flower girl and if so what did she carry- petals, a little bouquet, etc? We have one but I didn't really think about having to pack a basket for petals. Seems like a pain so wondering what ideas you may have? Also were you able to steam your dress/ bridesmaid dresses?
  10. I'm staying at Akumal as well. Can you post the email address? Thanks so much! Does the resort have anywhere where my dress and the bridesmaid dresses can be steamed if need be? I thought about buying a portable steamer to take down with me if not. What have past brides done?
  11. I read on trip advisor that it's wise to email the hotel ahead of time to book a la cartes. I wanted to pass this info on to my guests, since we are going during March break and it will be extra busy. Does anyone know the email address where guests can do this? I saw it in trip advisor months ago and of course now I can't find it. Thanks for your help!
  12. Thanks for the info and pic. I tried to post this the other night but I'm having a lot of trouble navigating this new website! Did anyone get any prescription medication for before the trip, ie - dukoral (sp?) or twinrex? Normally I wouldn't even worry about it but since it's my wedding I want to take all precautions! lol Does anyone know if the resort uses filtered water to wash produce and to make ice for the drinks?
  13. I saw that you did the symbolic ceremony which is what we are doing too. How long was the ceremony? We need to let our photographer know. Also do you have any pictures of you and your husband during the ceremony at the gazebo?
