Hola ladies...

 

Just wanted to let you know that I finally figured how to attach photos, so I've posted my review of my Jan 30 Tulum wedding on the Wedding Reviews thread!

so its just that bit of extra freedom we can spend doing what we want and when.

haha i say all this and we probably end up never leaving the resort wink.gif
Abbie - My parents went to the Mayan again over Christmas and they rented a car for the full two weeks they were there. My dad (who is an explorer at heart) absolutely loved the freedom. My mom (who loves sitting on the beach) said it probably would have made more sense for them to rent it for a couple of days instead of the whole time.

If you're not planning on venturing too far off the beaten path, I'd say collectivo's are your best bet. We used them when we were there and found them to be very convenient. You can always hire a private transfer to and from the airport.

But if you're like my dad - who drove down to Punta Allen, Sian Kaan, etc. (and was planning on a day trip to Valladolid) then a car would be worth it.

That being said, next time we go we'll be renting a car as there are more places I want to visit where a collectivo won't take us. So I say make a plan of what you'd like to do/see and then see if renting a car makes sense.

Honestly, I think I gave her the final numbers once we were down there already! :) I am pretty sure she confirmed my guest list at the meeting three days before the wedding. Prior to that I had told her a rough guesstimate... but that's it.

Hi everyone,

 

I am a newbie and am getting married at the Tulum side on April 24th. I booked the pool side reception and was wondering if anyone did the same? Pics would be great!

Have fun and please give me all the details when you get back. I am just wondering if people want drinks other than what I selected if they can just go to another bar and get what they want. I still don't get paying for drink at an all inclusive!

I know, it's kind of dumb... but I think you are paying for the whole bar setup... I will let you know how it all goes! Of course I have a cold and a cough now, this sucks!!! I m taking vitamin C like it's my job!!!

Yeah, you aren't paying for the drinks, you are paying for the service. They open a bar which is typically closed and stock it. They also give you personal waiters which are ONLY for you, no other guests. That's what you are paying for. It took me a long time to realize that too, but trust me, it's COMPLETELY worth it!

    • 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.
