    Hi Everyone!

    I'm new to this forum and getting married in Tulum on June 12, 2010. After a lot of on-line research my fiance and I found most of the resort packages to be too expensive or too crowded for us. We decided to rent a secluded beach house near the bioshpere and have the ceremony on the beach right outside with the reception in Hechizo, a fabulous restaurant a short distance away.

    Now I have to find a florist, a photographer and someone who rents sound equipment, chairs for the beach, and decorations. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks for any help you can give!!

            Welcome to the forum. I was married at Milamores in Tulum, and rented a house in the Rancho San Eric preserve myself. I know the area well. You can read my review for some hints.
            I ran a site visit tour in November. The feedback can be found here.

              Welcome to the forum!
              Tulum is AMAZING! I just did a trash the dress session there and there really isn't a more beautiful beach. So gorgeous.
              Best of luck finding everything you need!
