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

Just wondering if any past brides/grooms have used the hanging paper lanterns at their poolside reception. I got an email from Linda, Palomas assistant, with some answers to some questions and she said that they are not allowed. That's kinda strange since they just have an LED light in them and no open flame... maybe she thinks I was talking about the sky lanterns that you set off into the air??

Hi everyone, Did anyone figure out if someone can do a reading at the wedding (poem) for a legal ceremony? Because its a destination wedding our wedding parties dwindled and we were left with an odd number. We had to ask someone to step down but I'd like to include her in the legal ceremony by reading a poem. Thanks!

Yes I am doing legal wedding and Paloma told me AFTER the legal stuff we could say our own vows and have a poem read. We have an odd number as well- 5 bridesmaids and 2 or 3 groomsmen lol. I'm having my girls walk down together linking arms.

I was told for legal we need four witnesses?

Does anyone know if the witnesses (2each) go sign the wedding certificate during the ceremony when the bride and groom do?

As things are getting closer I was wondering about tips!

What did you tip your wedding coordinator, officiant, bar staff at your pool side reception and wait staff at the restaurant for your wedding. 

We have about 50 people coming and we want to make sure we are being fair to the staff. :)

I have the same question Holly! I was contemplating asking the wedding coordinator what is customary but I don't want that to be akward either!!

Yeah, you've had a response at last, hopefully I'll hear something soon as mine is soon after yours! It sounds like she thinks it's the floating sky lanterns and said no due to health and safety.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
