Hi everyone! We are booked with 60 guests at Akumel December 6-13th 2015. Our wedding is scheduled for the Tulum Gazebo at 4pm on the 9th. We chose the unforgettable package, I was wondering what the price was for more than 25 guests? The information I received does not list an additional charge for more than 25 for the "summer packages" I just wanted to confirm that this was correct? Also wondering what the best restaurant option would be? We are planning on a poolside reception after dinner with the special cocktails ($5pp and using the speaker to play our iphones $70 phr) Thank You Ladies!

Here are some photos as promised. I will have more later on.

The first picture is a spread we had for a persian traditional wedding. The flowers I asked the resort for. They were beautiful.

. Awesome! I don't believe there is an extra charge with that package. I am choosing something very similar for November. I recently downloaded this wedding dj app to use with the speakers if you want to check it out, it works really well. Did your 60 guests already confirm? What airline are you travelling with? I am having a hard time with this group booking thing!

Looks awesome! Love the decor. Did you rent the chair sashes from the resort?

@nicolesal  Thanks! that's what I am thinking too but didn't want to be surprised with another $1000 bill when we get there! I just read about that app and will be downloading it soon to try and get some music together. Yes I have 60 guests booked with deposits down! We booked back in August so deposits had to be in by the beginning of October. We are with Air Transat and used a travel agent at Marlin Travel to book. We are flying from Toronto on the 6th of December and as of right now our group is almost half the plane! I found our rate very reasonable at $1348 pp including taxes

Wow I am starting to feel really behind the ball! I am just waiting for Linda to confirm my date then I can book my trip and order my invites. I got a group rate of 1295 per person and thought that was a little high. Though Akumal is turning into the luxury resort. So did you send out your invites then get a group rate? The group rate I've gotten is only good for a week.

says in the unforgettable package a room upgrade for bride and groom and parents. does this actually happen? I don't see anyone mention it on here.

 

 

if you are travelling in December you will prob be winter 2015/16 prices I would assume it would be 35 dollars like the 2014/15 winter package. I wonder if it less busy in the summer so they don't charge extra?

I got my group rate which was good for one month and within a few days I had sent out my invitations. I had them ready and as soon as I knew the prices I put them into the info package I sent out.

 

the room upgrades weren't anything crazy at Coba since all rooms look the same but you do get free safe, great cleaning service in rooms, gold bracelet giving you access to everything on the grounds, beach towels in the room, free mini bar.

We got our group rates and put down our deposits which held 30 seats on the plane at our rate for 90 days! We knew we would have more than 30 so we got our family and wedding party to put down deposits with us saving 50 seats which we still went over. After we put down our deposits we sent out invites/save the dates with booking info and prices.

We have the wedding prices for 2015 and the summer rates are through Dec 22nd so we are booked during the summer technically and I guess there is no additional $35 charge! But now that Akumel is a Don Pablo edition the price for the package has gone up from $1090 to $1240

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
