Ahhhhhhh

Recommended Posts

Hello another newbie here! My partner and I are planning to Wed in May 2010. After much research we decided on Maya Luna in Tulum. After Liaising with the hotel and wedding planner we come to realise that itâ€s a bit more expensive than we expected. I had hoped that my family and friends would stay at the hotel with us but as its cheaper to get a package with flights...my family will probably be staying elsewhere. If we donâ€t fill 80% of the hotels rooms we will have to pay $1600 restaurant hire fee rather than $900. Iâ€m starting to question whether Maya Luna is the right place for us, however my Partner disagrees. I have started to get a bit stressed about this and feel like my head is spinning. All I want is a nice stress free chilled Bohemian wedding on the beach with a BBQ and already I feel like the veins are popping out of my head!!!

Hello Tiffik,

I experienced the same frustration when looking at Maya Luna. This last year, the private party fee was only $500 without any guests at the hotel. That is quite the price hike. How many guests do you think you will have? There are a lot of options in Tulum.

Congrats and welcome !

it may look expensive but remember that in many places, you cannot have a private party at all, or you have to pay around 4000-5000$ to privatize the place to start with. So a 900$ penalty does not sound that bad to me... If you like the place, had a good feel with it... go for it girl !

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
