    Ive heard of dogs and parrots delivering the rings, but never a monkey doing it though! not sure how you would even go about renting one! You want to be careful though, a hotel in Thailand i went to had a so called tame monkey to take photos with tourists...and then one day it bit someone in the face! imagine that  happening in your wedding!!

      Lol ya that could happen but just like with any other animal unless is your own. And if it did happen it would be a crazy story to tell when u get back... lol

       

      We have been to Mexico before and we took picture with monkeys, and we have been to the monkey temple in Indonesia, and nothing ever happen other then the monkeys stiling sunglasses and hats in exchange for bananas.

      Our wedding coordinator knows someone that has monkeys and she is going to ask if we can rent them for a couple of hours....

      Hopefully the monkey that we get is nice and friendly....

        The Ak'iin is such a wonderful rustic and intimate hotel!  I've shot many weddings there and they are all so unique.  Sounds like your wedding will be unique as well!  Feel free to browse the Akiin Tulum wedding, Riviera Maya, Mexico.

                      The main reason that we decided to have it here is because we wanted to have monkeys Karla is our wedding coordinator and she is great. she is on skype almost everyday and if i have any new ideas or questions she is on it... she already found 2 monkeys that i can rent.

                      I also have menues, lots of pic (they also have it on facebook look at akiin tulum).

                      Hope these helps, let me know if there is any other info that u need,
