ohhhh really interesting. unfortunate about the price increase :( but I think you are still saving not having to pay an extra 35/pp? I hear akumal has lots of good options so I guess that's still a plus. and you got a good price too. wish we picked akumal instead of coba now!. oh well

Yes we are very happy to not have the extra $35 pp charge! The extra 150 isn't a big deal at all, I just noticed it today and thought I would let any other Akumel guests know. Yes, our travel agent is awesome and got us a great rate right before it changed to luxury.

That's a great price. I priced Coba for my jan 2015 wedding and it was well over $2000 PP.

 

I should say that's from Canada for 7 nights with hotel, airfare, transfers and tax

We got prices for Calgary and Toronto.. she said it was so much over $2000 she didn't even want to tell me what it was LOL!!  Not sure the carrier, but it would be similar time frame to yours as we are getting married on the same day!

 

We are playing $1565 out of Calgary now for our resort, and our Toronto guests are paying $1465.

Hi All! Looking for some general advice. I was talking to one of my TA friends last night and she said with a November date I need to be prepared for my trip to get cancelled due to a hurricane. But if I moved it to January I am worried about flights being cancelled/delayed due to snow conditions in Toronto. I really don't want to push my date to March/April 2016 but if it is my best bet I will. Thoughts??!?

November is the tail end of hurricane season. I'm not too worried about it, but I am going to get insurance just in case.

I know I've asked this a couple times, but does anyone know anything about this "new tulum beach location" for ceremonies? I'm waiting to hear from the resort about whether they will honour their earlier statements that I'd be allowed to get married at Akumal, and I want to know if it's a viable alternative in case they say no after we've already put down deposits.  The ceremony location is the only thing that I am really unwilling to compromise on. I do not want to get my wedding photos back and have a big guy in a speedo watching in the background like a creep, as happened to my FH's cousin.

Hi all,

Not sure if anyone can help me but I've just received a price breakdown of how much our wedding package is going to cost. The first part is

1. the total price of your wedding package will be 1570 usd + (16 extra guest * 25 usd each one) =

1, 970.00 usd

 

I've already paid for the sunshine package through our TA so really not sure what all this price is for?? Also what are the extra guests added on for??

@@DonnaandDaz The wedding cost gets added to your room charge at the resort (or so it would appear) so the resort probably hasn't received anything from the TA. Also, the Sunshine package includes 20 people, so you must have 36 booked? If you look at the 2015 packages that I posted a few pages back in this thread, the prices per person are listed.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
