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 !

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
