Good Luck!
Thanks. I emailed her earlier and requested a read receipt. Haven't gotten one yet.

I filled out the "form" to reserve my date but left a bunch of sections blank (booking number, tour operator, room type, etc...), so hopefully she accepts that and can reseve my date.

I just got a email from Yuritzia and then when I tried to reply I got a error so now I resent the email using this email groupsmx2@bahia-principe.com and so far no error but when I reply from a email sent from her it is a different it is Gerente_Grupos_y_Banquetes_BPAKU/Bahia_Principe@soltour.es so maybe there is a problem when you reply to a email from them.

Yeah, that's all I did too, they just asked me to forward our booking numbers etc once it was all set in stone. I'm sure it will all work out! :)

We originally wanted the mariachi band right after the ceremony but our friend is playing the bagpipes for our recessional so she said why don't you have him play and then take picts with family & friends so our guests and us are not missing the band. Then have dinner and then have the band play after dinner, so pretty much we moved the cocktail hour til after dinner.

We also were able to book our wedding before we booked our trip. We org. contacted the resort in March for a Feb wedding but they said they were not booking that far out yet and we had to get back to them at the end of April or early May.
Awesome thank you! I was nervous about giving people a timeline when we can't even really confirm the time etc until we get there. That makes more sense that we would give it to them once we get there and everything is worked out...

JKCZ- I know, its coming up fast. We leave on Friday. I was just at my hairdresser and she reality checked me into realizing that I have TWO DAYS before I leave. I'm stressed one minute and not the next. We're pretty prepared. Just a couple of last minute things we still need to do. If only Jazmin would respond in a timely fashion to my emails, things would be a lot better!! We still haven't decided what we are doing for dinner... I'm waiting on her to answer some questions. We're trying to decide between the outside poolside private Taquiza dinner (which is cool, but quite expensive when you add everything up - extra for drinks, extra 2 hours for the DJ, extra for dessert, I think etc. etc.) and dinner at the Mexican restaurant (free and included in the package). I just don't want to wish I had done things differently when I look back on it!! And RyanAmanda's private dinner looked so beautiful!!

 

 

Deep breaths.

Speaking of DJ's. I am getting Married at the Akumal on May 26th and we are having the poolside dinner/reception. Can someone give me the down-low on how to pick the DJ and share some of their personal DJ experiences? Thanks!

How exciting and nerve racking to be leaving in days, yeah it would be good if you could get answers to your questions quicker. We were trying to decide between a private reception vs restaurnt but decided on the rest. bc it can be windy in Feb so we thought we would do the band and dj outside & if people are chilly they will have to dance!

 

We hired DJ Bob he is originally from New Jersey. His rates are pretty good. Here is his website. Wedding DJ we just needed to provide him with 10 songs and he will pick the rest which was a big check off our list. There is also no charge to bring him to the resort either so that is a bonus!

I thought they provide a DJ there? I mean, we are going to be getting married on the Tulum side, and I was under the impression that they were providing the DJ, and that it is $150 per hour... and we could give him some CDs if we wanted? Is this true?? I am all confused... Plus... another question... I think someone posted it before... are you supposed to make a CD with you walk down the aisle song, all that stuff? Sorry, my brain is fried lol

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
