Also, don't worry about trying to coordinate your group and their activities. It will only stress you out. Just tell people where you plan to be and let them follow you. It was difficult to find everyone since the resort is large and people kept going to different locations. We wound up just picking a place to be and telling people what time to meet us. Then we would pick an evening time to meet in one of the lobbies. Worked out better that way.

Anyways, sounds like there's been lots of talk about the spa so I thought I would throw in my two cents. Our wedding was perfect but the spa was horrible. I hate my hair. In fact, when I look at our pictures I look so odd because the hair isn't me at all. The hairdresser spoke almost NO english. It was a complete nightmare. I brought 6 pictures of the hairstyle but what he did looked nothing like the picture. I got him to wash it out because it was so bad but what he did the second time wasn't much better. Plus he complained the whole time. We all felt so uncomfortable and it made for a miserable morning. And then on top of it, they overcharged us by over $200 US. Really, it's the only part of the wedding I regret. There wasn't enough time to redo my hair myself though so I left it as is. Also, they took FOREVER. My appt was at 11 and we were almost late for our wedding...which was at 5pm!!
So, I would make your appts ridiculously early. That way you're sure not to be late and you'll have time incase you have any problems.

I got married on the Akumal Beach, not the palapas, but I am guessing our situations are similar I got some platform flip-flops from MyGlassSlipper.com and wore those for the ceremony. I had regular wedding shoes as well that I wore for the reception. I would suggest getting some form of flip-flops, because you'll be roaming the entire resort taking pictures and the stilettos are not easy to get around in on different terrains!

Now, for the curling iron, you shouldn't have a problem.

Our ceremony was at 5pm so we didn't do any pictures on the beach because it was so dark. If you are planning on walking on the beach for a while to do pictures, then I would bring flip-flops, etc.
ETA: Oops, forgot about the curling iron. You shouldn't have a problem plugging it in. The plugs are different shaped but our plugs still fit in them. However, there is a raised plastic circle around the outlet. So if you have a regular plug (like for a toaster), then it's no problem. You know how some products (like professional hair straighteners) have a 'box' on the plug? Or like how the battery chargers are for digital cameras? Those you can't plug in because the raised plastic is in the way. However, you can buy an adaptor from the desk for $2. As well, one of our guests had an 'american' outlet in their room so they could plug everything in without an adaptor.
