    Hola @Siuc4me !!! welcome to the amazing bestdestinationwedding.com community. There are so many great resources at your fingertips.

     

    We'd be happy to help in any way we can. Do you have any specific questions at this time?

     

    One tip we can suggest is remember to always wear sunscreen in the days leading up to your wedding day. No one likes a bad burn or terrible tan lines when you are wearing your beautiful wedding dress. :P

    We still are waiting to hear back about our date preference. Yet my biggest question is do the packages seem to cover (cost wise) most things? I know there are add ons. We are trying to get a budget idea in mind. Also, gift bags. Any pic? What did brides include for guests? I have a million, but those are first. Lol
    Thank you!!

      Regarding budget and decor add-ons, you'll need to communicate with your contact (wedding coordinator) at your chosen resort (Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, if I'm not mistaken). They will have all that information available for you. These add-ons can range in price, and include various items like string lights, paper lanterns, erecting poles for further lighting, centerpieces, etc etc etc...  We've definitely found in previous weddings that add-ons provided by the venue/resort are typically more expensive than bringing down your own purchased decorations from back home, or conversely, there's a few local companies here that can be hired (though outside vendor fees to your resort may apply). One company that we would highly recommend, offers additional decor/lighting/etc but they meet with you before the wedding so you have a chance to obtain those items yourself, which eliminates the need for them to come to the resort and set things up, but have you charged for bringing in outside vendors. Katy is at the head of the company Love & Lace, and here's her Facebook page link.

       

      https://www.facebook...veandlacedecor/

       

      Other add-ons to keep in mind is additional seating at the ceremony, and more importantly, at the reception. Packages will include a certain amount of plated meals (if you're doing a private reception) but sometimes, it will only cover something like 20 guests, with each additional guest costing $XX per plate. Those are definitely other price factors you'll want to confirm with your wedding coordinator.

       

      As for gift bags for your guests, our experience is always one of producing a "survival kit/bag" that's geared towards items you may need (and may have forgotten to pack) while vacationing at an All-Inclusive in the tropics. Simple items would include things like tylenol/ibuprofen, bandaids, pepto-bismol, waterproof watches (no excuse to be late), tide-to-go, lotion, sunscreen, sunglasses, baby wipes, etc etc... There's a great thread on here with a previous bride who includes several photos of her items and lists what she packed the kits with:

      Hopefully this information will help you thus far, and of course, any other questions that come to mind, we'd be more than happy to help answer.

        Are you wanting coverage for the full day or just the ceremony?

          Welcome to our forum community, Kelly and Congrats on your upcoming Bahia Principe Akulum wedding!!!

           

          As you've already seen, there are lots of great resources here to help with your planning questions, so well done on joining us :)

           

          One item you may want to check is whether your resort allows outside vendors.

          We're based in the Riviera Maya, so are familiar with our local Grand Bahia Principe Akumal's policy of not allowing any outside photography vendors to enter their resort.  If photography is important to you, this is one factor to consider in your resort choice.

           

          We wish you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! Moments That Matter Photography team :)

              If you are JUST wanting ceremony, your best bet is to inquire with your resort. It would be most cost effective this way rather than having to hire another outside company, potentially pay more fees when really they are just there for 30-60 minutes.

               

              Cheers!
