        We had Eugenia back in November and I believe she had in an email told me that she would leave a note at check in as to what time we would be meeting with her the next day. We met with her at 1 the next day and all went smoothly so I would say don't worry about it.

        For those of you that got married at Akumal, did Eugenia set up your meeting time with you before you got there, or did she just leave you an appointment time at check in?? Like everyone else with their wedding planners, I emailed her a couple of weeks ago, but have not heard back yet. I can appreciate that they are really busy though. It seems to me that they need more wedding planners at this resort, or a few coordinators to at least answer emails!

          That is great to know. Thank you. I have heard that Eugenia is really good, and I know they are super busy. Each coordinator does something like 3 or 4 weddings a day this time of year, so you can imagine how many brides that have to work with and get back to. I am a wedding and event planner here in Vancouver, so I can sympathize!

          For anyone that had a pool side dinner, do you know how many chairs they typically put per table? I am wondering if it will fit 8ppl or 6ppl? I want to get the seating plan done before we go.

            jadk - I haven't planned any details yet, but I was hoping to have my bachelorette party two nights before.  I read somewhere that the day before your wedding you should avoid alcohol and salt to avoid puffiness.  I'm thinking that I will get all the ladies together and we would go to Playa Del Carmen and go hopping around to the different bars/clubs.  Because I heard there is one street with a lot of clubs, but I haven't looked into it yet.

                Nikki - I just asked Eugenia the same question. We have 67 people including us, so she said she would have 7 tables with 10 ppl per table. 


                I can't believe how close it is!! I just sent out my pretravel brochures and luggage tags this am. I LOVE vistaprint! haha


                Are you doing a ceremony program? I feel like I'm running out of time so I'm going to keep it as simple as possible. haha  I'm picking up my wedding dress on Friday.


                I'm getting excited! Only 26 days and I'll be on my way to Mexico and in only 29 days I'll be Mrs. Jones! Can't wait!!

                  Hi all!  I just had my wedding there on Friday and everthing was really great and what I was hoping for.  I had Eugenia and we were married at the hammock location.  The only thing that we had a problem with as far as that went was the wind was incredible and basically by the end of the pictures my hair was a mess and the flower had come out.  All of it was fixable so no worries there.  We had the resort photographer and their work was incredible.  Unfortunately the photographer that we had was so hard to understand and everyone was getting quite frustrated.  Even when we met with him the next day to look at the pictures, my sister had to actually try and act out her question for him to understand our question...didn't work. 

                  We had our dinner at Dolce Vita and it was all great except for the dessert which was so disgusting that no one could eat it.  We had the chocolate wedding cake as well which everyone loved.  We then went outside for the poolside reception and had hired DJ Bijan who was fantastic. 

                  There were a few other hiccups such as I had asked Eugenia if I should make menus for everyone but she told me that she takes care of that.  When we got there there were no menus and the waiters started asking the guests right away what they wanted for their entrees but didn't tell them really what the choices were.  I had also given Eugenia a seating chart and people were at the right tables, just not in the right location.  I also had to go and pick up my own flowers with only 3 hours before the ceremony and I wasn't too pleased with that.  They were late getting there and then I felt rushed to get back to my room and get my hair and makeup done.  I don't know if this was because I didn't get my hair and makeup at the spa but had a friend do it. 

                  All in all it was a fantastic day and that is really all that mattered to me.  This was our second trip there and I'm not sure if we will go back again.  The overall service for us and our guests was lacking but it didn't take away from everyone's excitement for the day and being in Mexico.

                    So I just got my prebook confirmation for my wedding date, I am so excited! I did have a question, I was planning on doing dinner at one of the restaurants and then a poolside reception, did you reserve the poolside when you did the ceremony? I have a lot of time until my actual wedding but I just like to be organized and have everything set. Thanks for all of the advice that this site has given me so far, so many great ideas!
