    Past brides, I need your help!!! I'm thinking about getting married in the Akumal section at the Hammock. Just wondering if the sun got in your eyes during the ceremony? I'm afraid to get squinty eyes :(. Thanks in advance!

      Hey ladies, I know this question had probably been answered before but for those that have gone recently, they do take American money correct? Because my mothers airline tickets came with information that said they don't take American but I'm positive they do... Am I right??

        You're allowed lanterns at your reception - poolside. I'm not sure about the restaurant though. I've seen some pics and the decor is very minimal in the a la carte restaurants.
        We've decided to have EVERYTHING poolside (even the dinner) - and Jazmin told me Im allowed hanging lanterns as well as floating ones in the pool. Just as long as I bring my own.

Does anyone know if you bring down lanterns for the reception, will the resort set that up for you? Just curious, is everyone mostly doing a restaurant reception follow by a pool reception?

            Do you have to bring your own string to hang up the lanterns or does the resort provide that?  Also I have never heard of floating lanterns before, where are you getting them?

            The Hammock Location faces east (if I'm not mistaken), so as long as you get married past noon, the sun will be behind you.  So the only time you'll be squinty is during the recessional, but just smile at your hubby and you'll be fine! :)

             

            Also the reason why sunset pictures don't work at this resort, the sun sets over the land, not the water!

                  Thanks!! I'm really considering doing a poolside reception ever since your post. We have about 30 people coming right now, and it would be so great to have the privacy and to decorate it the way you want to. Are you hiring a DJ or using Ipod?

                    I'm pretty sure they will string them up for you - but I'll have to double check on that

                    there's plenty of places to get them I think - just google 'floating/sky lanterns'

                     

                    I found some here

                     



                    Do you have to bring your own string to hang up the lanterns or does the resort provide that?  Also I have never heard of floating lanterns before, where are you getting them?
