Andrea, it's been almost 4 years since i got married, but I HATED my pedi.  I wish I would have just did the pedi before I left and didn't get it taken off down there and redone.  Perhaps they are better at them now?

 

lmadore, the beach is rocky.  Little coral in the sand.  I didn't find it too uncomfortable and honestly, not very many people swim in the ocean.  A few, but most people are either snorkling in the ocean or swimming in the amazing pools.

    I seemed to have a ton of time also. I remember pacing a bit waiting for it to be time to put the dress on. Yes the Spa did my hair and I loved it. My bridesmaids also and theirs was nice too. My appt was at 1:30 and Wedding at 4pm. I put this one up so you guys could see the hair.

     

    Frutos Del Mar's food was great. The salmon was way better than the chicken. The desert was amazing and the wedding cake was really good too. Great service.

     

    The photo is done by arrecife. I loved them we had like 67 and 400 orginals for like $850ish.

      Thanks lyzzie33! Do you have a picture of the reception dinner at Frutos Del Mar? Would love to see how they set the tables up. Which wedding cake did you end up going with?

        Hiya! No problem! Thats sooo funny because I was considering changing to the Akumal Hammocks until i saw this tropical pathway!  Its convinced me to keep my ceremony at Tulum beach

        That scenery just makes me melt - part of the reason why we chose a destination wedding to begin with...i love that I'll be walking though that tropical magic before i exchange vows!

I wanted them at the poolside reception and they placed them here. In the end it didn't matter. No one noticed, and we carried them to the outside.

          The cake was small, but after everyone ate the awesome desert the restaurant had, only a handful of people wanted cake. The cake was super good too.
