I would love a copy of that pricelist... if you wouldn't mind sending me a PM with it, that would be awesome. (Or should I send you a PM with my email address? I'm new and relatively clueless about BDW procedures.) Thanks so much!

For those Cdn brides I just wanted to get some confirmation for the legal requirements getting married at the Coba.  I hope that all that is required is our passports and tourist cards and not the long form birth certificates and other notarized documents.  I am getting confused on what resort needs what and want to make sure that I leave myself enough time to get stuff together in case I am wrong.  I am getting married in March 2011.

I'm doing the legal ceremony next month and as far as I know it is just passports, tourist cards and you have to get blood tests done at the resort once you get there. This all has to be done 4 business days prior(we arrive Sunday and our weddings on Thursday). I believe they do all the work for you and the legal fees are included in your wedding package. The blood tests currently are $90USD per person.

Hey ladies,

 

I'm staying at the Tulum resort but I'm getting married at the Akumal beach location. I found out that your dinner and reception have to be at the hotel where the ceremony is.  I was hoping that I could have my dinner and reception at the Tulum. Anyway, my restaurant choices for Akumal are Dolce Vita and Frutos del Mar. I have guests with severe seafood allergies, so the Frutos del Mar seafood restaurant is out of the question. Is anyone having their dinner at the Dolce Vita?  We are going to have over 50 people, so we can only have one choice for a main entree. It's all pasta dishes and not everyone likes pasta. I just wish there was a little more to choose from. I would love to hear from someone who is having or has had their supper at the Dolce Vita.

 

I'm looking into a private dinner and reception as well but that could be really pricey with all my guests. haha I'm excited to be making these decisions though because it's all starting to feel very real now. I'm going to hire DJ Bijian as well. I hope he is available for our wedding. 6 months from today will be my wedding day!!!!!!    SO EXCITED!!

Hi Abbie,

We are also having our dinner at Dolce Vita- I thought it would be better for more of the guests than seafood as well. Im also a little nervous to have such a limited selection for the guests. We are only allowed two options for the main dish for them to choose from, one appy, and one soup. Not really happy with it, but the cost of a poolside buffet was alot! and since your having so many guests..yikes it would be expensive.

So excited for you girls! I wish I could do it all over again!

 

As for the dinners, I wouldn't stress too much about it. The restaurants are all gorgeous and have fabulous food. A typical wedding dinner at home would only have two selections for an entree so I think that's reasonable for the resort to offer the same thing. And it's ONE meal out of your guests' whole vacation so if they're really not satisfied they can just head to the buffet or snack bar before the dance starts! I only had two meal selections for mine and not one guess complained...actually they raved about the food!

Someone on this thread a while back mentioned that there was an online catalog for flowers/bouquets. Does anyone know anything about this? I wouldn't mind checking that out if its available. Thanks :-)

Hi Abbie,

 

We have 60 people and are having dinner at Dolce Vita as well.  We've picked the chicken dish...  everyone loves chicken- right?  Our wedding is less than a month away.  We are having the private pool-side reception and hired DJ Bob.  I'll let you know how it goes...  

 

Thao

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
