Yup, sorry, I should clarify for future people reading this... it was a free cocktail hour prior to my private reception (which was anything BUT free!)

    Hello ladies,
    I'm getting married on June 4, 2008 at the Akumal side and have been having a hell of a time trying to get a reply from Yuritizia. We leave in 3 weeks and I still haven't received confirmation on a few requests I've made. I would love if any of you brides or brides to be can send me any info on the following:

    - Dolce or Fruits del Mar Restaurant? I leaning towards the Dolce restaurant. What colour is the decor? How many people do each of the tables seat?

    - I'm thinking of doing a cocktail reception after dinner by one of the pools with canapes, dj and a bar. Does anyone have any pricing or photos for this?

    Thank you!!!

    3 weeks and counting :)

    Michelle

      I would love to have the choice of flowers emailed over to me. I'm trying to get an idea of the type of flowers available so I can bring down a photo of what I have in mind based on the flowers they have available.

      Thank you!!!

You can reserve it until 10:30pm and after that it is open to the public.
        Hello there fellow Torontonian :)

        I'm getting married at the Akumal side on June 4, 2008 and was thinking about doing private reception cocktail by the pool after dinner. How did yours go? Did you get the canapes as well or just the bar and dj option? How did they decorate the area? Do you have any photos you can post or send me?

        We were going to opt for the disco if the reception cocktail by the pool didn't work out but I think it would be beautiful to have it outdoors under the stars!

        Thanks!!!

        Michelle

        Wow, only three weeks! That exciting! What type of things are you waiting for confirmation on? I didn't really ever have confirmation, but when i arrived it was all done and ready just like I'd requested in the e-mails. if you are really concerend e-mail Paloma and she'll get back to you.
        The Dolce is very nice. The decor is minimal. The flowers on the tables are birds of paradies, the glassware is green. They have large tables which seat 6... but for all I know they can push tables together
        My entire reception was by the pools, so if you look at my photos you will see kind of what that looks like. Studio Home Page
        Canapes are $8 per person per hour, the DJ is $150 and the bar depends on what type of alcohol you want served. It's as cheap as $5 per person for the first hour and $3 every hour after, or as expensive as $20 an hour for a full open bar.

        I just sent you the e-mail. If you look at my photos, my bridal bouquet, the ceremony table arrangement, and my husband's bout were all included and i did not have to pay extra.

          Tlseege, your photos looks amazing. Bahia did a great job setting up your reception by the pool.

          How were the canapes?

          Thanks!

            How is the Arlequin compared to Dolce? I'm trying to see if I can have my dinner there but wondering if it's worth the extra effort. Does the Arlequin have better food and decor than Dolce?

            Basically, nope. You can't have your dinner there! Well, unless you have around 6 people total... in which case you can make normal dinner reservations. Otherwise, NOPE! I tried and absolutely not! Bummer.

            I did not have canapes. Sorry.

              Well hello there. It's great to see someone from the same province AND city! I have just e-mailed you the selection of flowers. I have also attached some pictures with my flowers and the bridesmaids. Because the reception by the pool is basically right after dinner, I don't think you would need the canap┬ęs. I would definitely go the private reception as oppose to the disco. Let me know if you have any other questions. So exciting!

                I totally agree - if you can afford it. We couldn't, so I just wanted to point out that we went to the disco and it was still amazing. We had a great time - the service was awesome and the DJ played great music (we brought 2 burnt cd's in case their music wasn't all that good (and for our first dance songs) but it was great). Good luck!!
