@Ellia123 did you have to pay full price for the trial hair? did you have to pay a judge fee with the symbolic wedding?

the trial hair comes with the bridal hairstyling price. no fee for symbolic wedding

Hi everyone! We are booked with 60 guests at Akumel December 6-13th 2015. Our wedding is scheduled for the Tulum Gazebo at 4pm on the 9th. We chose the unforgettable package, I was wondering what the price was for more than 25 guests? The information I received does not list an additional charge for more than 25 for the "summer packages" I just wanted to confirm that this was correct? Also wondering what the best restaurant option would be? We are planning on a poolside reception after dinner with the special cocktails ($5pp and using the speaker to play our iphones $70 phr) Thank You Ladies!

Here are some photos as promised. I will have more later on.

The first picture is a spread we had for a persian traditional wedding. The flowers I asked the resort for. They were beautiful.

. Awesome! I don't believe there is an extra charge with that package. I am choosing something very similar for November. I recently downloaded this wedding dj app to use with the speakers if you want to check it out, it works really well. Did your 60 guests already confirm? What airline are you travelling with? I am having a hard time with this group booking thing!
@Ellia123

Looks awesome! Love the decor. Did you rent the chair sashes from the resort?

@nicolesal  Thanks! that's what I am thinking too but didn't want to be surprised with another $1000 bill when we get there! I just read about that app and will be downloading it soon to try and get some music together. Yes I have 60 guests booked with deposits down! We booked back in August so deposits had to be in by the beginning of October. We are with Air Transat and used a travel agent at Marlin Travel to book. We are flying from Toronto on the 6th of December and as of right now our group is almost half the plane! I found our rate very reasonable at $1348 pp including taxes

@HannahMarie

Wow I am starting to feel really behind the ball! I am just waiting for Linda to confirm my date then I can book my trip and order my invites. I got a group rate of 1295 per person and thought that was a little high. Though Akumal is turning into the luxury resort. So did you send out your invites then get a group rate? The group rate I've gotten is only good for a week.

says in the unforgettable package a room upgrade for bride and groom and parents. does this actually happen? I don't see anyone mention it on here.

 

 

if you are travelling in December you will prob be winter 2015/16 prices I would assume it would be 35 dollars like the 2014/15 winter package. I wonder if it less busy in the summer so they don't charge extra?


55 guests booked plus bride and groom :)

I got my group rate which was good for one month and within a few days I had sent out my invitations. I had them ready and as soon as I knew the prices I put them into the info package I sent out.

 

the room upgrades weren't anything crazy at Coba since all rooms look the same but you do get free safe, great cleaning service in rooms, gold bracelet giving you access to everything on the grounds, beach towels in the room, free mini bar.

@nicolesale

 

We got our group rates and put down our deposits which held 30 seats on the plane at our rate for 90 days! We knew we would have more than 30 so we got our family and wedding party to put down deposits with us saving 50 seats which we still went over. After we put down our deposits we sent out invites/save the dates with booking info and prices.

@Dreamteam17

We have the wedding prices for 2015 and the summer rates are through Dec 22nd so we are booked during the summer technically and I guess there is no additional $35 charge! But now that Akumel is a Don Pablo edition the price for the package has gone up from $1090 to $1240
