    I agree about the veil. I got married on the beach at the hammock location and my veil was in my face the whole time. Allthough our weather wasnt the greatest because it was pretty windy and raining as well. The veil was nice in pictures though! But it really did get in the way for the ceremony. I was having to keep pushing it back behind me constantly.

    Someone asked about a veil.  I had one.  I tried it on the day before the wedding.  I did not wear it.  It was FAR too windy at the Hammock location and it would have been wrapped around my head.  This doesn't happen every day, obviously, and if you're willing to stand on the right side and your FI stand on the left side it might not be as bad.

     

    Natty, if you stay at the Akumal side, your wedding has to be at the Akumal side, which with any sizeable group I'm pretty sure has to be the hammock location.

      well ladies, I leave for GBP in 12 hours!!! I cannot believe how fast it got here.....ya, ya I know they all say that. Any way thank you to all of you past brides for all of the advice and info. Honestly I got more info on her than the resort website and wedding planner. The WP are basically just order takers.

      For all of you future brides, I am having the Akumal hamock beach ceremony and then pool side dinner and dance so I can let you know when I get back how it all works and what it costs. I will be back in two weeks. We are having our honeymoon at the Eldorado Royal Casita Suites.

                    KRama: How is it that price (1000) for a private dinner on the beach??? I definitely would consider that option but the buffet prices (outdoor private dinner) are way more $$$?
