    Hi ladies! Less than 50 days for us :) I'm wondering if anyone has some cost savings ideas or if they were able to get a discount on anything, with the Canadian exchange rate being so awful, the price of our wedding has gone from $2800 to over $4100 Canadian. Although better than a traditional at home wedding I'd still like to stay under $4000 if I can, and I know there will be extra things added on when I get there too! Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Wedding at Tulum 

    Extra fabric on Structure is $90 (not necessary but looks gorgeous - maybe I could bring something with me instead?)

    Poolside reception is $250 + bar for 3 hours works out to be $841 = $1091 total

    Speakers for reception $210

    Unforgettable package $1665

    All in USD.

     

    Hello all. New at this and just about to book Coba for our wedding. The only pricing I have seen is for the basic packages, photos and spa services. Does anyone have a list of any additional charges such as the above that are optional?

    It'd be a great help.

     

    Thanks!~

    Happy Monday everyone!

     

    Is anyone willing to share their timeline for ceremony/reception? Our ceremony is at 5 p.m. so we're trying to figure out what time dinner should start, how long we will need a DJ, etc.

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi! Oh how nice to have it at 5pm! Where is your ceremony? So we are 4pm ceremony, 6pm dinner and 8pm-11pm reception :) Do you have your coordinator yet? She will pretty much tell you when your things have to be!

      Hi

      I'm from uk. We get married May 2016. Only doing weddi g wishes. Having unforgettable package. We are getting married at 3pm. Meal at 6pm not chosen restaurant. Staying in coba side. A couple of questions. Has anybody not had a private cocktail or private party? What did you do in between the cremony and meal? I was thinking about having a private cocktail party but see that there is a charge of $250 then extra per head for drinks. My oh dosnt see the need as we are all inclusive anyway. Also the photos included by on site photographer are they just taken during the ceremony? Are they any group shots? My brother is a good photographer so going to get him to take a lot

      Ahh I fly out in a month and have not packed yet or went to get USD or Pesos! Help... Any last min tips? What documents do I need to bring? Money saving tips? I'm planning on taking my wedding party on a snorkling catamaran ride (possibly a big enough private boat so guests could come too). Have any of you done this? What's the best company?

      Can any past brides comment on the Akumal beach aisle? Is it deep sand or is there a firm path to assist with walking? Although I had planned to go barefoot, my small height isn't cooperating and I now feel as though wedges are my only option.

      It's definitely not a firm path.  Deep sand and I find it hard to walk in with just flip flops on.  Sorry :(

      Hi ladies, might be a silly question but I'm a bit confused on how to pay... Is it all cash? Or credit? And is there a certain amount daily? Is it not better to bring the whole lump sum in cash?
      Thanks!

      Thanks @emigrayson Is there no option to pay cash? The exchange rate and international fees on the credit cards were probably high no?

      And welcome back! How did everything go?!?!
