    Congratulations! Can't wait to see your pics and hear all about it. I figured you'd be back soon with info on Coba for all of us, as well as the resort as a whole.

      Who was your wedding coordinator? My wedding is in April and she hasn't communicated with me a lot so I'm a little nervous. How many details get ironed out before and after you get there?

        I'm getting married at the Tulum side (sorry I don't remember which side you're getting married at). My WC is Jazmin and she has usually gotten back to me within 3-4 days (sometimes sooner, sometimes later).

        I've asked her a lot of questions but here's a list of what we've decied on BEFORE we get there:

        - Wedding Package
        - Wedding location (but we can change our minds when we get there)
        - Dinner location (we chose the Tequila resturant)
        - Dinner Menu
        - Dance location (we're renting the disco for 1 or 2 hours - FH couldn't get his head around paying for booze - if we do it by the pool - at an AI, haha).
        - Wedding Time (I can't remember right now but its at 2 or 3pm)


        Here's what we choose AFTER we get there:

        - Flowers (I asked Jazmin if she could send me pics of a few examples but she said she didn't have any - so if anyone knows who supplies the flowers - could you let me know cause I'd like to contact them personally)
        - Cake (we chose the tres leche (sp??) before but I think we choose the decorating when we get there)

        I think that's about it :)

          Thanks for your help. I'm getting married at the Akumal side, and my WC is Yuritzia, according to reviews on other sites she's supposed to be good. However, I think the ball will get rolling when we got closer to our date (and money has been paid to the resort). Thanks everyone for your help

            Which other sites did you find with reviews? I would love to check them out. I am getting totally obsessed with online reviews and forums for this wedding. I'm not going to know what to do with myself when it is all done.

              I was totally obsessed with it as well, but then you read some bad ones (mixed in with dozens of good ones) and you remember the bad and panic a little (or A LOT). So be warned, have a paper bag handy when reading, but then remember to read the really good ones over again. Here are some sites:

              If you want to totally panic, this is what can potentially happen so if you're ready for this then you'll be prepared for the worst.

                OOps you have to scroll down to the posting titled "Wedding From Hell" to get the worst image imaginable.
