Awesome!! my wc is Maria too! Did u guys do a legal or symbolic ceremony? what kind of decor did u bring with you? setup??

Did you have to ask for the wedding day time line for the guests or was that just provided? extra cost?

 

How was the resort photographer? Glad to hear the wedding day went smoothly!

 

 

we as well have 80+ ppl coming so set up for them will be extensive...was there any hidden charges with anything you werent expecting?? thank you so much for ur help and advice :)

Yeah we were glad this wasn't the case for us. You can use the coba side of the beach and Tulum I guess. not sure how they can control the beach area considering it's all one long strip! But the food and everything was much better at Akumal.

We had a symbolic wedding. I had brought chair sashes, wedding programs for ceremony and then chair sashes, cloth napkins, candles and candle holders, table numbers and holders, guestbook, seating chart, sweetheart table decorations. 

I had ordered flower centerpieces which were very pretty!

 

The wedding timeline sheet was provided at no charge. 

 

We cancelled the resort photographer and flew down our own.

 

No hidden charges. I had made sure to ask for a proper break down of costs. Once we got there though Maria said that we would need extra speaker (due to the amount of people we had) which was extra but that was about it. 

 

Oh also the flowers were beautiful!!! I will post pictures tomorrow.

@Ellia123 It sounds like you had a beautiful wedding! I'm actually leaving tomorrow and getting married on Friday so hopefully things go as smoothly as they did for you! 

 

I was wondering who you tipped and how much you tipped them? I'm thinking, the WC,  the bartender, wait staff, and the band anyone else I'm missing? How much for each?

I tipped the WC, the main guy in charge on the wedding night and others tipped the bartender themselves. We didn't have a band. I was so distracted, I didn't even see who was filling up the buffet and doing things around the wedding.

@@Ellia123 wow sounds amazing. I'm just working with Linda right now. Did you get assigned Maria once you got there? Also I got the wedding dj app as well, did they have the proper hookups for an iphone 5? What did you do with all the decorations you brought down, did you bring them all back. I am so glad your hair turned out well, that is a major concern for me.

Linda was super nice! really liked her. I had Maria all along but they all helped out at some point. 

I don't think they have the iphone 5 connector to charge (if necessary), you should definitely ask. 

I brought back everything I had taken.

The lady Marivel who did my hair was excellent, I showed her a picture for 3 seconds and she knew exactly what she was doing.

@@Ellia123 but they do provide the connectors for the iphone to the speakers correct? I can bring my own charger. Also, did you get the mexican trio for music? How were they and where did you use them? Lastly when did you book your appt for your hair? Did you get it done at the Coba spa or Tulum? Thanks so much for your help!!

yes we had an iphone and it worked fine. 

we cancelled the mexican trio because it didn't flow with our music and night at all. I organized the music for the entire night myself. 

I made the appointment approx 3-4 weeks prior including the appointment for the trial. I did it at Coba.

    • Congrats on finding the perfect person for you! Love is a journey of patience and time Where are you guys planning on getting married?
    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?
