My father will be turning 60 while we're at the resort a few days after my wedding. Any ideas on something special I could do to celebrate?

We celebrated my husband's dad's birthday after our wedding. His brother paid to get a cake for him. It was about $15 I think. Maybe less. They did it thru the front desk. (Sorry thread hijacking. I didn't marry at your resort)

This was our tulum beach setup. It was pretty basic the white fabric at the front with the white chairs and the podium at the front. We didn't do extra flowers and I am glad we didn't waste the money cause with the background we didn't need it. We did do flower pedals on the walkway all the way from where I started it was a good guide to where I should walk! Lol
The signing table was very plain as well you can see on my gallery but it was windy so not sure how decorations would stay on the table.

@N50mys

How much is it for the private pool side party with resort dj for 3 hours? DJ is 210usd/hour
I have attached pricing for 2015 reception prices I received it's all based on what bar you purchase.

My partners parents are divorced and remarried so we have 3 sets of parents, do they honour this with the parental privileges? At first they only gave my husbands parents wrist bands cause they to by last names and my parents are different so it's best to mention it at check in. I filled out a guest list closer to my wedding date and they request that information on there but they still forgot at check in.

Anyone got the prices for the flowers I would need 4 more bouquets and 5 more buttonholes and something for flower girl?

Also flowers for the wedding site?

Did anyone use bouquets as table decoration at wedding dinner?

I did not use the bouquets but that sounds like a great idea.

Also what if guests wanted to purchase flowers? None of our guests purchased flowers so not sure on that.

Has anyone got photos of the Tulum beach wedding location?
I posted some pics on my gallery of the ceremony location set up.

Hope you can help xxx

@Dreamteam17 thanks for the pics. Did the shadows spoil photos? Looks a bit shady!

This is the akumal hammocks which has now been painted white. It doesn't come with the ribbon though. Has anyone else got any pics of either akumal hammocks or the new tulum beach location. I'm getting married in 4 weeks and I can't decide which location to choose. Just need anyone's input if they've seen them both and which they think looks the better location. So hard to choose when you haven't seen them.

It didn't effect my pictures and if there was some it wasn't really noticeable. Both options are nice I think amd both will be beautiful. The hammocks is a much longer walk for you I know and it's all open beach. The tulum is more bushy surroundings and you walk through a bush path as you can see in my pictures.
No matter what you chose it's going to be beautiful. I tried to switch to hammocks when I wasn't Sure about the tulum location and it was all booked up within a week of me changing my mind. In the end I was happy with my choice and wouldn't have changed anything.

Oh my god, they ruined the site.  Why would they paint it white? It's not even a good paint job! I just spent months fighting with the resort to get this ceremony site. I chose this resort specifically for that site. And now it looks terrible! White fabric on a white arch? There's no contrast! How can I go back after months of fighting and tell them I don't want the site now because they ruined it?

Oh my god. I can't believe they changed it. I originally wanted the Tulum gazebo and then changed to the AKUMAL beach on their reccomendation. Now I don't know....

Well I've now Changed to tulum beach location...hotel has just confirmed this.I've had akumal hammocks booked since last February but had no Idea they had painted it.I asked them to send me some photos of the location set up, otherwise I wouldn't of known till I got there. Luckily they had 1 time slot left 1pm not Ideal but at least I could Change. I've attached photos of the new tuum location.
@Maggietron
I'm sure if you just email them and ask if you can change am sure it will be fine. I've just emailed and said I don't like the hammocks painted now and she replied straight away and said I could Change.
