Hi Ladies. Just wanted to share a photo of the new wedding location in akumal built last week. I wasn't there bit someone from another group I am in posted it.

Jazmin still has not replied to me in 6 weeks and I'm not happy. We leave in 42 days and need some answers so I can finish making plans. Linda responded saying jazmin was to busy to reply. What upsets me is that yo fate I have not spoken to her once not even an introduction email even though she was assigned to me 6 weeks ago. Oh well.

Now I'm looking for advice on makeup for the wedding that won't melt off or look white in photos. Hopefully past brides have some suggestions :)

Hello Shannonandangela,

I too have been waiting for a reply from Jazmin. From my understanding she is a manager and she should be assigning you a wedding consultant soon. I'm getting married on Aug 11 and it seems like everything goes in stages as far as responses. I am sure she will be in contact with you soon. Try not to worry although I know it's hard.

I am a makeup artist by trade and what I recommend is less is more when it's hot. If you can forgo the moisturizer and use a primer under your foundation . Avoid using concealer over top of your foundation (use light weight one with no oils) as well. Use the concealer on the areas that you need it only. To make things even you will want to match these two items to your skin tone not any lighter. I often I take a few shades (while on holidays) and I mix them to get the exact colour as your skin will change while your there. Use some bronzer and set everything with translucent loose power (colourless). Prime your eyelids to prevent creasing (very important). Use waterproof as much as you can. For blush use a liquid (stain) if possible. Practice prior to your wedding as it can be a bit tricky to get it right.

Hopefully this helps you out. :)

How does everyone feel about the new gazebo? I'm a bit worried about it creating weird lines for pictures. I also feel like it looks really dark..

I had the same questions about the tulum site, since they have the same awning. Another bride who got married there said that it wasn't a problem with the professional photographer. I booked the Akumal site just in case, but now that one is the same thing.

Does anyone have the wedding menu for Portofino? The resort didn't send it to me and didn't answer my request for it.

Update: I have changed my location to the Tulum Gazebo. I really don't like what they have done with the AKUMAL one.

Does anyone have any experience with the resorts videography? Honestly from what Ive seen on facebook I'm not really impressed. I wish we could bring outside videographers in.

I'm thinking of just bringing a GoPro with us and editing it when we get back.

My BMs husband had a go pro and I was happy with his rendition of the ceremony. Depends what is important to you.

Hi @Maggietron,

That's fantastic! We are getting married on the beach at Tulum (ocean view) at 5 pm on the 11th. We will be at the resort between Aug 3-19.
We wanted to have some time to get things done before our guests arrive on the 8th and to as well have alone time after they leave. Where are you at with your planning process?
:)

A few questions if anyone can help

I noticed we get VIP service with the wedding packages, what does this include?

Does anyone know if the resort has shuttle services to and from the airport?

For the dinner at the a la cart resturants for the reception dinner, are you able to order from the regular menu? Our group will be small and I'm not interested in a set menu.

Any help will be much appreciated as I have not heard from Linda or Jasmin on these questions.

Thanks ladies :)

My wedding is next month at tulum gazebo. Does anyone know the process of people attending the wedding who are not staying on the resort? I emailed Gina but have not had a response back 😬 Also what are past brides recommendations for hair and makeup? Should I have the salon at the resort do it? I'm at a loss 😕
Thank you!
