Tulum Wedding - Nov 2010 (I think)

Recommended Posts

Hello all!


Thank you for sharing all of this wonderful information! It's hard enough to plan a wedding generally, but when it's out of the country it's even more daunting.


My name is Kristiaan Lewis and my fiancee is Lionel Madiou.

We're planning to get married in November of 2010 in Tulum Mexico.


We are going on a scouting trip in 2 weeks so I will be trying to gather as much information as possible.


We need a planner and a venue if anyone has suggestions. Though we'll have about 100 people, I'd like to steer away from the larger resorts. I want something quaint with a lot of Mexican charm and where maybe we can take over the whole hotel or two adjacent hotels. Any thoughts?!


Thanks again!!

Two great places in Tulum are Hotel Milamores and Cesiak. Cesiak is more remote and doesn't have a lot of accommodations so guests might be scattered. Milamores is less remote and can accommodate more guests and there will be options next door. You can see videos from both these locations on our website here:

Use the dropdown to select these venues. Tulum is a great place to get married. Rachel and I were married on the beach just south of the ruins at Tulum, near the Paraiso.

Congratulations Kristiaan and welcome to the forum! You will find lots of information here that will help and inspire.


There are many couples on the forum that are/have been married in Tulum, so there is no shortage of information. Paul from Playa Weddings mentioned Milamores Villa as a possible location since you are interested in alternatives to the big resorts. I am getting married at Milamores and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have about that accommodation or others since I had an opportunity to explore the area while on a scouting visit last Spring. There are so many great cabanas or beach clubs that could be of interest as well, and very friendly folks on the forum who will be happy to share information from their experiences. There is a thread about Milamores if you search within the Mayan Riviera section of BDW and a great review by a forum member Malisa about her wedding in Tulum.


Best of luck and happy planning!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
