I just got married on the 6th in Akumal and it was awesome! We opted for the Mayan Blessing and it was really really fantastic. We wanted our guests to have an unforgettable unique experience, and that it was. If anyone is doing a symbolic, I would highly recommend this and it was a delightful treat for our guests. But please do make sure that the WC knows this. We confirmed a year in advance, then 2 weeks before we are ready to leave, she says the minister is confirmed and we had to correct her that it should be a Shaman. It took her over a week to secure the Shaman. This was a little upsetting, but it all worked out. So please make sure you read everything.
While our wedding week was great, I would not say it was relaxing as 4 days we had appointments regarding the wedding. We arrived Sat afternoon and Monday afternoon was our assigned meeting time with the WC. Then the wedding on Wed. Followed by a follow-up appointment with the WC Thursday to collect our decorations and our gift. Then finally an appointment on Fri with the photographer and we left on Sat. So while we did have down time, we found we still had to watch the clock to make sure we were out of the water, showered and dressed for each appointment which meant we could never fully unwind.
Everyone at the resort is fantastic and fabulous at what they do, and they work hard to ensure your day is perfect and special.
I was thrilled to find out that neither my entrance song, or our departure song had ever been played before at a wedding at the resort. This just added to the uniqueness of our experience.
Tip - You can reserve tables in the buffet and have a big group dinner if you desire
