Thanks for the review!


re: Tulum Shuttle: We were just in the area and just an FYI- paid $2/per person for the shuttle from the entrance to the Tulum ruins. It's really not that far, easily walkable, they've just put in a new sidewalk that is mostly shaded. Also note, the shuttle stops running at 5 but Tulum stayed open until 5:30 or 5:45 so we didn't get the ride back.


Save that money for a drink once you are finished with the tour!

I can't believe how many excursions you got in!!! That's great!!! Thanks for sharing! We only did the Tulum Ruins, a Cenote, PDC twice and that's all we had time for with the wedding and all!!! I agree that the Tulum Ruins are beautiful but leave hardly any shelter from the crazy hot sun. We almost couldn't enjoy them because of the heat, we went straight for the beach and spent most of the excursion in the water!!! Well worth it though.

Most things are in true colourful, handmade Mexican style, not talking fine china and lace here but perfect for a DW!

It really depends how much you want to spend, how many tables you have to decorate, how far you want to go and whats provided by your resort (in my case not much!) My way of thinking was to try to get a few uses out of things, eg stuff used for table decor to double as favours and try to think outside the box so if you see something pretty in your budget can you use it to suit your purpose eg use a bracelet as napkin holder for the ladies etc?

A selection of things we saw which are feasible include Serape style table runners and place mats which look fab over plain coloured tablecloths, painted scarves, sarongs etc which can double as chair bows and favours, chunky handmade glasses (fab for tealights), handpainted pottery as vases to hold your bouquets as table decor or as bowls for floating candles, lots of stalls selling intricate beaded bracelets, keyrings, jewellry. Of course maracas which can be personalised with name tags for place settings and in my opinion are a total MUST to get the vibe going!

Good luck with everything and happy shopping!!!

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
    • I am coming to cancun sept 4 2021 and I am interested in releasing butterfly's in remembrance of my recently deceased daughter. We are staying Riu palace costa mujeres. Is this something we can do
