Tulum - Fire Restrictions?

Recommended Posts

Being an event planner in my every day life I wanted to get my wedding venue and photographer and all that important stuff nailed down right after I got engaged. So I am getting married at Ak'iin in Tulum and very excited about it.


Now that I'm working out details with my Wedding Planner down in Mexico, I was just told that we cannot have Chinese lanterns as Tulum has very strict fire restrictions. Which encompass everything from fire dancers to Chinese lanterns. 


Colour me disappointed! But I did want to share with fellow BDW brides in case they had their heart set on a fire related activity and were debating venues.

How are your plans shaping up??


Have you ever heard of Dove Balloons?? If fire is not an option this could be a good alternative:

I am getting married at Ana y Jose in Tulum and we also asked about wish lanterns. They are also against the rules. Since so much of Tulum is made from natural materials, such as the thatched roofs it's too risky should the winds shift them back towards the shore. Huge let down but certainly understandable. I would look into fire dancers though, I have seen make images of weddings with them near the water's edge. Search wedding photographers sites to find examples of tulum weddings with dancers to try to sway them.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
