    How are you all planning on bringing your dress, as hand luggage or hold luggage? I have a dress box its too big for hand luggage but its only cardboard and im scared the box will get damaged in the hold. What did past brides use? Thanks in advance

      I am carrying my dress on the aircraft  with me, in a garment bag.  I am travelling with Sun wing out of Vancouver - they have overhead bins reserved for bridal gowns!

      Definitely carry your dress onboard with you in a garment bag.  Lay it in the overhead compartment and it'll be fine.


      Thursdays is the Mexican Fiesta at the Hacienda, and you do have to pay per person for that.  I believe $18 or so.  So in that case, I'd party at the lobby.  Tulum and Coba always seem to have a live music party going on.

              There is a very good chance I will be in bed by 1115...but I think I will also want the night to last forever!  Just keeping my options open :)

                Hi,

                Our wedding is on 9th May so a bit before yours I think. I'm glad to hear that you don't need translation. Was just a bit worried as have had some issues with FC. Have you heard back from your WC? Ours is Eugenia and still nothing - am very annoyed to be honest. I know that they have a lot of weddings etc but it is very close.

When we were there last year, we saw a party going on under what seemed to be a large palapa around a pool area either in Akumal or Coba and can't remember which it was - it was 100% not Tulum. We are expecting around 40 people and want enough room to dance - anyone know which pool is most private and has the most space to move around? 

                  HI

                  You wont get to party on the beach for health and safety reasons for all concerned.

                   

                  When we were there 2 years ago there was a bridal party that decided to move from the pool area and go swimming in the sea later in the evening and someone got into trouble  . . . .
