Hello Ladies!!

Recommended Posts

I'm so excited to have found this site, I've been a nervous wreck planning this wedding from so far away.  Were booked to be married Feb 1 2013.  Couple of questions: Were booked in the Akumel ssection, does that mean we can only access the wedding locations and restaurants in the akumel side or can we have our ceremony at the Tulum Gazebo?  thanks for your help

Welcome to the forum!! Your post doesn't mention it, but I assume you're getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe?  That's where I got married, and I'm photographing a destination wedding there this week actually!


If you are booked in the Akumal section (good choice, by the way), you won't be able to get married at the Tulum Gazebo.  You'll most likely get married at the Akumal Hammock Beach location. 


You will be able to dine at the other restaurants, but not for your wedding dinner.

Here is a very informative thread that I put together that hopefully will help you out:

Congratulations Kristen and welcome to the forums! I have shot Akumel once for a wedding and it was fantastic! Love the area and was just there this past weekend swimming with the turtles and stingrays! 

You guys will love it there!! Best of luck with all your plans. Let me know if you have any questions.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
