When I was married in May there were two poolside repecptions in the Akumal side of the resort. Our was at the main pool and the othe at the activity pool. I can confirm that they can accommodate more than one poolside reception on the Akumal side per night. Not sure about Coba & Tulum

Thank you so much for that confirmation from the Akumal side!!!  There are plenty of pools, so I'm sure it can be done at all three resorts.

 

Fernando is the only one that I've worked with.  He'll send someone else for hair though. 

 

I confirmed the poolside reception probably 7-8 months before my wedding?  I never confirmed a restaurant, because I wanted it all outside.

Thanks! I'm going to contact my travel agent again tonight, and hopefully get something from her. She hasn't introduced me to the WC yet, which she told me she would do about 2 weeks ago. So I'm going to try and push her a little more so I can email Paloma or Jazmin myself. I feel like I'll be a happier bride-to-be once I have the dinner and reception confirmed. Everything else becomes so much easier, I feel.

 DJ Bijan is the only DJ at Mayan Vibes.  So far he has been awesome at responding to my emails.  I want to book him, but I am just waiting for Maria/Paloma to confirm my request for a pool side reception.

I didn't bother waiting for the confirmation from the WC on the poolside reception. I'm going to trust that they will find a way to accommodate, especially when we have to pay extra for it. I sent my deposit to DJ Bob, cause he said there was someone else requesting for same day. I didn't want to take the chance.

 

You ladies think it's a gutsy move without the resort confirming the poolside reception?

I'd be interested to know if everyone thinks that is gutsy or not too...It will help me decide if I should put down the deposit down before hearing from Maria.

 

DJ Bijan said he would hold the date for me until Dec 31 without me having to put down a deposit (which is sooo nice).  So I have some time to think about 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.
