Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Thanks for that....I checked our documents & it does say champagne toast after the ceremony so this must be the cocktail hour.

 

I am undecided whether to have a DJ or ipod? Could you hear your ipod ok?

Can't help you with the DJ since we didn't use one. iPod was the way to go for our poolside cocktail party! Cocktail party is after dinner. We paid to do the private poolside one which was great fun!

 

Re: Cocktail hour

I'm not sure if its for all weddings or only certain ceremony types, it should say I think in the documents they sent you when you chose the type of ceremony you wanted. Its directly after the ceremony (it was free for us) and its just toasting. They set up a table and have a couple of bottles of champagne for right after the ceremony so you can do toasts/pictures before you move over to the dinner location. It's a time filler mostly :)

We had 40 people and had no problem hearing the iPod. They hook it into big speakers, not just a little dock. The DJ would have been a colossal waste of money IMO.

Jazmin told me that is not an option... unless I bring my own speakers or rent from somewhere local.


On another note... I'm starting to panic again! I emailed the spa trying to make an appointment to get my make up done a couple weeks ago and heard nothing. I emailed Jazmin about the timing of our meeting and some other stuff... nothing! I'm leaving in 12 days and I really hope they email me back in time!

Did everyone bring copies of all emails between you and wedding coordinator? I'm wondering if I should be printing mine out soon??

I would take all emails... I did I didn't need them I just felt better having them as reference.

Spa Bella don't stress, I forgot to book and booked the day before and it was three of us and they were open... I went on a very busy time of year... June is much less busier.

Word of advise have lots of pics regarding how you want your hair take them for them to see.... Both staff at the spa speaks very little english.
that maybe why you have not heard back from them...

I spoke too soon! Both the Spa and Jazmin wrote back to me this afternoon already!

 

Do I need pics for make-up too? One of my friends is doing my hair (she's a stylist)... and I already had my hair trial!

 

And my appointment with Jazmin is all set up. Yay!

It may be a per location thing. I was at the Akumal and had no problem with this... if anyone is considering doing the iPod thing make sure to check and double check w/ the WC for your wedding location.

I think a DJ is well worth the money! There were only 36 of us and we just loved having a DJ. We used his system for speeches and DJ Bob kept everyone up dancing all night long!

    • 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.
