    Does anyone know if there is someone available on the resort to steam the dress and the get the wrinkles out after being on the airplane? Has anyone ever used them or know if they do a good job or how long it takes them to do it?

    Yes, for a small charge they will take it and return it.  I personally didn't do it as the humidity was all I needed, but some of my brides that I've photographed have and didn't have any problems.

      Hey everyone, 

       

      Does anyone know if they can set up a projection screen for a slideshow poolside if your dinner/reception is the private poolside option?

      Does anyone know if we're allowed to use outsider vendors for ordering flowers? 

      I'm wondering if this can be a way we save up a little if I find better prices else where in Riviera Maya

      Unsure but as someone who is getting married off the resort, they are pretty comparable to what I am paying

      Hi Ladies!

       

      Iv booked Akumal from May 07 -17 2015 with the wedding date being May 14th

       

      Iv chosen akumal beach however i really don't want to be on the gazebo. Are there any other beach options?

       

      Definitely having a private poolside or beach reception as we have 50 guests from Canada and Australia attending.

       

      Any other brides around the same time?

       

      So many pages to read!!

      Hi everyone,

      I hope your wedding plans are going well, I think I get more confused every time I read this thread, there is so much to think about, it's overwhelming!
      Has anyone had the theme dinner at the beach location? We're getting married at 2pm, then dinner at the arlequin and hopefully onto the beach for the evening. But I've not heard anyone mention it so wondering if it's a good idea?
      Many thanks for your replies

      You can do a poolside reception, but not on the beach.  There isn't proper lighting on the beach, it's really windy, and bugs come out at night (and crabs).  The poolside receptions are beautiful, though.
