    Yes! I was told they can accommodate for a GF cake :) I am so releived because I was literally just diagnosed with celiacs last month - AFTER wedding and trip was booked!

    Amazing news!!! I have a wheat allergy and they query celiac disease. My blood test was partly positive and the scope broke during the endoscope so they couldn't get the sample to confirm. I avoid the stuff because it makes me so insanely sick. I think I might back some gf simply bars with me.

      Does anyone know how much fabric I'd need to bring for the ceremony on the beach, I've read about 16-18 yards. Any ideas?

        Hi Kat I am flying my friend in who is also a photographer and Jazmin said aslong as she is staying a minimum of 5days that she is allowed to take all the photos and we dont have to pay a fee. 

        I have found a flight and 4night stay 5days for $940 and my friend loves this idea we are paying for her trip in return for full days photography wohoo

        I am just waiting to clarify if she means 5days or they have to stay 5nights if anyone else can clarify that would be greatly appreciated thank you

          I believe it is 5 nights at the resort.  Can anyone verify?

            Ok I am going to have our photographer stay for the 5 days also in exchange for photos.... so does the 5 days include the 2 days for travel? so traveling 2 days, plus 3 days resort? ...

             

            meaning, is it ok if she arrives on Friday and leaves on Tuesday? (wedding is a monday)

             

            Thanks!

              I agree. Their prices are too much.

               

              What about video? Any samples I can view?

                Do they actually pronounce you as husband and wife if it's the symbolic ceremony? We are doing symbolic and I just thought of this...

                  We are doing a poolside reception at akumal but just paying for the basic bar in hopes that they end up offering everything. Does anyone know if there would be a regular bar close by the pools if they don't?

                    Do you mean you are doing the national bar?

                    Are you getting a DJ too?

                     

                    Do you have pictures of poolside reception?
