Thx!!
Hola!
Ok, so there are many weddings a day. there are at least two a day possible at each section... and sometimes three. For instance, I'm pretty sure there were three on my wedding day!! In fact I'm positive of it! There was a wedding before mine, and after mine! I think it's because I had the private reception, so that freed up one of the two restaurants to host another wedding.

As for the wedding locations. Nope, you can't get married at the gazebo if you are staying in Akumal. There is simply not enough time, since there are already weddings scheduled there. Sorry!!! I don't know of any other location in Akumal besides the one where I got married. I'm sure there are some, but I wanted the hammock location so I never asked!

YEAH!!!! smile29.gif We just put our deposit's down!!!

 

We'll be there from October 25th to November 1st and hoping to get married on October 28th! I'm so glad we've booked!!!

 

There's one more question I couldn't find. We had some guests wanting to book adjoining rooms. You know in some hotels you have a door in the room that goes to the next door (if both rooms unlock it)? Did anyone see that in the Tulum rooms? I can't find any info on it.

 

Thanks!!!

Ah ha, the joining rooms question! RUMOR has it that there are some... RUMOR also has it that they are only on the first floor... RUMOR also has it that they are the two double bed rooms... RUMOR also has it that they are standard rooms only.

 

Now, key word being RUMOR! None of our guests had joining rooms and we never saw any... but then again... we really didn't go into people's rooms!

My TA confirmed that there are NO adjoining roms. My FI's brother has 4 kids and he had to get two separate rooms...that are not adjoined.

Hi all,

 

I have a question: Some of our guests are staying at the GBP, but we are not. When I first starting looking in the area, I was contacted by Yuritzia. Now that we're at t-minus-3-weeks and counting (eep!!), I wanted to get in touch with her to ask about dropping by the resort to leave our OOT bags for our guests. But when I sent an email asking about this, it was returned!

 

Could someone post or PM me with an updated email address for a coordinator who could arrange this for me?

 

Thank you!!!!!

I am not sure if this is listed somewhere so I thought I would ask since I can not get in touch with the WC at the Akumal. When doing a legal ceremony I know you need to be there 4 labor days before but can you travel on one of the days and get to Mexico around noon? Our travel agent can save us almost $600 pp if we go from Tues to Tues rather then Mon to Mon but our wedding is on Sat.

I responded in your other thread... but just as a note... when you e-mail Yuritzia, copy in Paloma. That's Yuritzia's boss and she responds much quicker :)

    • 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.
