As we love knowing the lovestory behind every wedding and also receiving feedback from our couples, we asked them to tell us more about their story, and all the choices they made for planning this very special day, and they were really pleased and happy to answer our questions.
How did you guys met?
“We met in English language school in New York.”
Why did you choose Tulum for your wedding?
“We had a hard time choosing a place for our wedding because our families and friends are all over the world. Since we don’t get to see them often, we decided to do destination wedding to spend a whole weekend with all of them. We love being nature, especially beach is our favorite place. We started looking for somewhere with beautiful beach and found pictures of Tulum online. That was it!”
What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?
“Intimate and cozy”
What was your color palette and your style vision?
“We used neutral earthy colors such as green, beige, brown and white. Style vision was simple, rustic but yet romantic.”
What unique elements or DIY details did you include?
“We wanted to make sure our guests were having a good time. We prepared photo prop frame and photo props for our guests to have fun during cocktail hours and reception. Also provided flip flops on the dance floor so that they can take off their heels and dance comfortably.”
What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?
“We loved every single moment of our wedding but our favorite moment was ceremony on the beach. Walking on the aisle barefoot was so amazing.”
Tell us about your flowers, your gown your favors, your cake, etc?
“Wedding gown: I’ve chosen effortless silk back less gown.
Flower: white flowers with different kinds of green leaves.
Favors: Tote bags! One of our friends helped us design print on the tote bag.
Cake: Vanilla flavored naked cake, decorated with green plants and colored flowers.”
What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?
“Know your priorities. Once you know what your priorities are, you can use more energy, time and money on them and everything else falls into places. You won’t need to stress out for the things that matters less.
I had no idea how planning for wedding with you being apart was going to be but it went much smoother than I excepted. Only thing was I wish we could see the layout of the restaurant where we hold our ceremony because dance floor space was isolated from half of the guests’ tables. I understand it is hard to see actual place when we are overseas.”
“We can’t thank enough! From planning to the date of he wedding, we weren’t stressed out about wedding because of you guys. My friend even told me 2 weeks before wedding that I don’t look like a bride because I was way too chill to be a bride.
When we met your team in Tulum for the first time in person, we felt so welcomed. You made our time in Tulum very special.”
