    Hello ladies,


    I have maybe a bit weird question: How can i take my wedding dress in the plane?, Im scared to put it in the luggage in case it gets lost or delayed as I am taking 3 flights to get to Cancun, so I wanted to take it on the plane with me, but not sure if its allowed and how complicated that is. I am travelling with United Airlines btw.


    Thank you

    @llimaa this is the link to a company I am using. I know this is a uk based company but they may have something similar in Canada??

    I have honestly never been in the Disco.  But that is where most wedding parties eventually end up.  Then again, most of the couples I've photographed were exhausted and ready to declare it a night at 11pm.  Or they just go to the lobby bar for live music and drinks.


    For your dress, you simply carry it on and store it overhead.

      Does anyone have the 2015 wedding package prices? If so, can you send it to me via a message? I can't view attachments on the site because i don't have enough posts. I'm getting married Feb 7th at the Tulum Gazebo and still havent received a reply about the packages or the cost.

        Hello ladies!


        I need to make my music selection for my wedding celebration and for my dinner.

        Do I need to put my music on a CD, on a MP3, on a USB key or on an Ipod??

        @katou  I need to do the same, but was told we couldn't bring music into the restaurants as the music is played on a resort wide radio type thing.

        Have you been told differently?

        Anyone know if you can play your own music at the restaurants?

        Also, can you pay to have a mic at a restaurant? I'm doing my wedding dinner at Don Pablo.

        Thanks :)

          I have been told you can have (rent) a mic at the restaurant if you have the restaurant to yourself but I am not sure if you can have your own music. They told me the restaurant already have is music playing.


          I am trying to get the calendar of the activities going on at the resort during the week of the 17th so I can print it and give it to my guest before they board the plane. Any idea how I can get the schedule?

          Yes, I have been told that as well....Our dinner is only private from 5:30-6, then more guests will be coming in I guess. I was told the same thing about music.


          Are you doing the poolside reception after? We have the same wedding date- crazy eh?


          Our ceremony is at 12 noon, and then our dinner at Don Pablo 5:30-7:30. I'm happy we got a few hours in between for us to take pictures 9we have 2 photographers) as well as for the guests to relax and do their own thing, or maybe all hang in the lobby together...it will make my wedding day extra long- yay!!! we then have our poolside party at the Akumal main pool bar "White Sands" from 8-11pm with DJ. I have been told you can request songs, but that the dj usually has a good playlist- have you heard anything about the DJ? are you doing speeches at the restaurant or the the reception??


          I think for the wedding music, you can bring any format (cd, ipod etc.) but not 100%...anyone know?


          That is a great idea to get the calendar of events for the week....if you find out how, can you let me know? When do you arrive at the resort? We arrive Sunday November 16th.

          Where are you coming from? We have a group of 80 ppl coming for our wedding- can't wait!!!

            I know! It realy funny!! We are both big groups: arond 80 people , and both on the same date :)

            We will arrive from Qu├ębec on the 17th! We are getting realy excited!!


            We'll do almost the same thing as you during that day but we'll keep the party going on untill 0h30. We might see each other at discotheque after :) We though about doing the speaches during the celabration which is @ 3pm, and doing other speaches during dinner time.


            I think you're from Victoria, BC, right?? Is everything almost ready for yourself?

            I'm still doing a lot of last minute things...


            I'll let you know if we get the list of the activities!
