    Hi everyone! This is the first time I've replied on this thread though I've been following it for a little while. All the information has been very helpful. I am getting married at Akumal, which means I have Yuritzia for a WC. So far I've only had one email from her and I am down to 5 weeks until we leave. It's a little frustrating but hopefully it will all turn out.

    We are hoping to have a poolside reception as well and have requested DJ Bob due to a couple of recommendations on the thread. Since he doesn't actually work for the resort, do we have to contact him or will the resort arrange that for us?

      Wow your wedding is almost here! I would keep emailing Yuritzia until you get what you need. We hired DJ Bob ourselves here is his info Wedding DJ he was great!

        Hi Heidi,
        Sorry, I don't know how to quote messages yet!
        Thanks for replying. We too have Karla, so I am happy to hear when the time comes to talk with her that things should go quickly. We were also wanting to have a private reception by the pool, and based on what I've read here DJ Bob is the man. Who do you have DJing? How about photographers? Again, based from what I've read the Claudia Rodriguez group is great, I've looked at Citalli's work and it looks great. I'm hoping to get a reply from them and book her.
        Even though as you said it could change, we have been given a 4 pm ceremony time, which works great for me, because we hope to do exactly what you are doing with dinner and reception.
        Keep up that excitement! I'm excited for you just thinking that I'll be doing the same thing next year!
        Bye!
        Julie

          To those of you who already got married, how far in advance did you make you appointments at the spa for your hair? And were you able to make appointments for your bridal party? Thanks in advance!

            I made mine about 2 months before I would make them as early as you can as they fill up fast. You can make appointments for your bridal party. I would warn people that if they do not prebook they may not be able to get a appt.

              i just confirmed my manicure appts with the spa and i leave in 2 weeks. although it's just a manicure and not any bridal styling so that probably makes a difference.

              they also just told me that prices went up by 15%...assuming ALL their prices went up and not just manicures

              so here's the prices jazmin gave me, in pesos:
              BRIDES AND MAKEUP
              Hair styling $ 790
              Bridal hair styling $ 895
              Make-up $ 580

              So up by 15% is
              Hair styling $ 980.5 = 91 CND
              Bridal hair styling $ 1029.25 = 95 CND
              Make-up $ 667 = 62 CND

              might want to confirm with the spa that all prices went up, email is spabptul@bahiaprincipe.com. they respond pretty quickly

                good nyssa im glad it helped :) you will like having the reception at tequila, it feels so secluded and secret, down the path from the rest of the buildings. are you using the gazebo? its literally like RIGHT there on the path near tequila, great location! sadly we were there at dark, so i didnt get the best pics of the gazebo, but i will post them here anyways asap :)
