    Okay. I sort of was wondering (or freaking out I guess you could call it)... but you CAN get married on the beach on the Tulum side right? Hank would be so disappointed if we couldn't... I saw Stacy's pics and it was on the beach, and you got married on the Tulum side right?

      The groom has decided that he's going to do a guys day and either go golfing or fishing. So now the bride needs to come up with an idea for the ladies. Any suggestions for a fun afternoon or day outing or activity?

      Thanks!

      How about getting massages on the beach? most resorts have like 1 hr massages on the beach for $40, the going out for lunch and then going into playa for some shopping and mani pedi's to get ready for the big day?

        Orchid - I would suggest shopping in Playa also. We went with "just the girls" and had a great day. You can definitly fill up a whole day. Also, if you plan to do the massages too (which is a great idea), I would suggest getting them done after shopping - we were very tuckered after a full day of shopping.

        JoLo - Yup, we stayed at the Tulum side and we were married at the beach location there. We loved it! Here's a few pictures for reference:

        Oh, the other thing I loved about this location is that you enter from behind lush greenery:

        We had rose petals on the aisle - but I think they only put them where we were standing. I would definitly order more if you want them to show up better in pics.

            Oh, I do! There is a "secret" beach located just around the corner. It's a dangerous walk... but it is beautiful!!!! If you'd like, feel free to e-mail me and I can send you some small versions first to see if you like them.

            Well what the heck, I'll post them anyways! Oh, this would be a GREAT place for a TTD session, as long as your photographer is willing to make the walk with all their equipment. It's amazing!!! There is an abandoned hotel which would be just AWESOME!

              Ooh, those pics are gorgeous! How do you get there from the resort? My wedding date is fast approaching. I guess I should email WC since I haven't done that. I did have my bridal shower last weekend. I am working on pics to post. So many things to do, so little time.

              Alright, well first off, wear proper shoes! Flip flops will be dangerous! I did it... but I fell a few times.

              Basically go south from the Akumal Golden Club villas. It's all rocks and be careful because creatures (giant lizards mostly) live underneath the rocks and tend to scamper out and scare you (hense falling! :)).
              Okay, so just keep going along the beach and you'll get there. I'd say it's about a 10-15 minute walk. It's in a cove so until you are in a definite cove... you aren't there!
