We're doing Unforgettable, then we're having the included guitar trio play at the lobby bar an hour before dinner instead of paying for a cocktail hour. We won't have reserved tables or anything, but I'm not too worried about it.

Thanks gals, another question.... Can you have your regular included dinner and then have a private dance/reception with bar outside?

Thanks gals, another question.... Can you have your regular included dinner and then have a private dance/reception with bar outside?

That's what I'm doing.

Is anyone else getting really, really frustrated with this resort?

 

My wedding is less than 2 months away. Since I chose this resort, I spent weeks fighting with them to get the Akumal site because they made it luxury after we already had our deposits put down. Then they tried to change it back to the Gazebo and I had to fight them again. Then they tore down the Akumal structure and replaced it with the same one I didn't want that matches the Tulum site. 

 

Then I book my appointments with the photographer and spa. No problems with the photographer, but the spa is having issues because the wedding ceremony is at Akumal and we're staying at Coba. They keep transferring me back and forth between the two spas when I've requested the Coba spa. Then they tell me to send the booking form, which I did three months ago. No reply or confirmation, so I ask them to confirm our appointments, and they start asking the same damn questions again about where I'm staying, so I again tell them that I requested an appt with the Coba spa, at which point they send me the stupid booking form and tell me I need to fill it out to make an appointment. 

 

So I email my wedding coordinator, Andrea. I tell her that the spa can't seem to confirm my appointment, and can she please find out if my appointments are booked or not. All she does is forward my email to the spa AGAIN, but without the attachment. THIS SHOULD NOT BE THIS HARD.

 

Not to mention that all I really want to know is the timeline. I want a 3pm ceremony, music in the lobby from 5pm to 5:45, dinner at 6 and reception 8-11.  I don't care about all the details, they will sort themselves out. I just want to know that the dinner and reception are reserved so I don't end up having to switch everything after I've told all my guests the timeline. As of right now, all I know is that the ceremony is at 3pm.

Hi everyone,

 

I'm getting married in Tulum in February 2017 (although not booked yet as we can't until January). However, I've exchanged many emails with the hotel already to make sure there's no hidden costs for the reception as there isn't a package as such.

 

My biggest struggle is getting recent photos from them, has anyone got any of their ceremony, dinner & reception photos they could show me please? I'm struggling to visualise what it can look like from just the catalogue of flowers they've sent me.

 

Also, I don't know whether to go for the Symbolic or Legal ceremony, will the Legal one mean it's legal in the UK also or just in Mexico? And is there anything I need to do back in the UK to make it Legal? 

 

I appreciate any help from former brides :-)

 

Thanks,

 

Steph

@@N50mys Congratulations and thank you so much sharing!!! It's so nice to hear from recent brides. I'm getting married at the same location and it was great to see some recent pics from real couples and not just what the resort sends you! You looked beautiful and everything looked perfect

@@N50mys your photos are absolutely beautiful!! Thank you for posting. Everything looks simply stunning. I have to ask, is the chandelier something that the resort provides?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
