I had the poolside dinner/reception... and I don't regret one ounce of it.  I thought it was absolutely amazing and worth every penny.

 

But the weddings that I've photographed that have had the dinners in a restaurant were really nice too.  I just personally wanted my guests to eat under the stars and have something special.

That's what we are thinking, too. It would be beautiful and allow us to take full advantage of the scenery and location.

 

Does anyone have a list of what each of the "buffet" options for the poolside dinner include? For example, what is American? What does Mixed Grill include" etc.

Can anyone tell me if they have had this issue or if I'm the one that is messing things up in this situation....

 

My ceremony is booked for Tulum Beach at 4pm, Dinner was set for 6pm at La Gran Tortuga. She tried to get me to have it at 530 and I said no because that does not give enough time for pictures etc and 530 is simply too early for us. She said that she would have to make a special request.... every other timeline i've seen has had dinner at 6pm. Anyways, today she emailed me and said we would be allowed to have it in the tented area of the restaurant only if we agreed to have it at 5:30pm because of the capacity - we'd be taking away from other sittings in the tented area for other guests. I'm not sure what to think about this, I am quite annoyed but I don't want to overreact. I've been very easy on all of the details but I don't understand why this is just now becoming a problem when everything was set months ago and now we are less than 4 weeks away from the date. What should I do in this case? the 5;30 vs 6pm is a big deal for me, perhaps there won't be a difference once we're there? Advice is appreciated!!

@@emigrayson I literally just emailed Andrea back because she is trying to make us have our dinner at 5.30 too! We're using the dinner in the package as a rehearsal dinner and having a private dinner for our wedding but regardless she had previously told me I could have it at 7 and now says only 5:30 is possible. Keep me posted on what you hear back and I'll do the same!

 

I feel your pain, so frustrating!

You'll be tight on getting your pics done. I'd personally fight for 6pm or ask for something in compensation.... Or could you start at 330pm?

We are staying at Coba, and I was just told by our wedding coordinator that we can't have our semi-private dinner in Don Pablo or Le Gourmet. In order to have dinner in these 2 gourmet restaurants, I would have to have a private dinner. Anyone else been told this?

Did any brides from Canada choose to pay for their wedding in pesos? Just wondering because with the current exchange rate, costs are significantly higher. I'm wondering how the resort determines the price in pesos and if it's any cheaper to pay in pesos, or do they just convert the USD price to pesos so it works out being the same?

@@amanda88 my WC said they don't have pricing in pesos and convert the USD price, so it works out to being the same unfortunately...

Has anyone decided to change their wedding package last minute? Like 1 month out... no huge change but switched packages, i'm not sure how my coordinator will react or if it's even allowed!

Looking for opinions on using the main Tulum pool as location for dinner and reception. Has anyone had theirs at this pool?

    • 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?
