Recommended Posts

Crystalz: We are getting married in November as well! November 19th...at Akumal...Hopefully the weather will be nice!

What resort are you getting married at? Who is your wedding coordinator?  What kind of ceremony/reception are you planning? Maybe we can share ideas?!?

 

Sunnyee: I would love to see wedding/reception/ceremony pictures...

And anyone else, if you have any to share- that would be awesome...especially those at Akumal weddings!

My email is: dara.franklin@gmail.com

I am going to be getting married at the Coba in June 2011. Have any of you stayed at this resort? And which block of rooms should I request? We will have at least 22 rooms and would love to be close together. Any suggestions?! Please and thank you!

I would love to see any pictures of past brides ceremony set up at the hammocks as well =)

 

Does anybody know if they still have the Mexican fiesta on Thursday nights?

 

Anybody who wants to buy cheap lanterns should check out this seller on ebay. I bought just 2 to check out the colour and quality and they are great!!!! I only paid a couple dollars for each of them

Hey Melady24:  What is Vista?  Is that a company and what do they sell?  When I think of Vista, I think of the Microsoft Vista operating system. But I don't think that's what you mean?? haha

Thanks Julie for sharing the information about the paper lanterns.  What colors are you planning to use?  Are you coordinating the color with your bridesmaid dresses?  I'm planning to get coral colored bridesmaid dresses, so I'm not sure which color paper lantern would look good.

I'm sort-of planning getting married in Coba late December, mostly because I've stayed there a fev times and there will be very few susprises. But, I was wondering if anybody knows whether it is possible to have reception dinner on the beach and not in the restaurant? Or possibly on the pierce? (Just dinner at the beach is on my husband's must happen list).

Julie, thanks for sharing the ebay website!

 

This might be an wedding-obsessed question but does anybody know the dimensions of the table at the Tulum Beach? I'm thinking of making these flower garlands to decorate on the table. I would have emailed my WC but it takes a while to get my questions answered.

Thanks in advance!

I was never given an option for dinner on the beach...but if I'm sure anything is possible.

 

My colours are tangerine and fuchsia (sp?). Bridesmaids are wearing really bright tangerine and going to add alot of fuchsia(chair ribbon, flowers, decor)

So my lanterns are those colours and I went with the 12inch, seemed the perfect size.

You could do coral and white, I think it would look great. Im really not sure where they are going to put these lanterns, but she said to bring them.

@Julie2011 I know it's not in the options. I'm just thinking about where physically we can put the tables etc. And what will the price tag on that be. That is if they will be willing to do that at all. The only place I can think of is the Coba side, by the beach volleyball nets.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
