      Wow, am I the only bride going to Mexico so I don't have to plan out my wedding day? I was just glad I had decided on a time for the wedding by now! I feel like maybe I should be figuring this out now...

        Nope --- you're not the only one ... I'm getting married on March 8 and I haven't even thought about this!!!

        Thanks girls for sharing yours! It helps not to start from scratch!

          wow- you girls are so organized!! I haven't even thought about it-- did resort people help with this!?!?!

          Here's what I would have so far....

          - determined to not get out of bed before 9AM- even if awake
          - coffee, coffee, coffee- with maybe a mimosa (or 2!) in between the coffees
          - have room service/breakfast delivered to room
          - have "wine bath"spa treatment at Spa- 50 minutes- scheduled for 10:00AM
          **at this point, hoping to avoid most everyone--I'm weird, but want this morning to just be me by myself to get my head straight... the FI is spending the night before in his best friends' room (though we've lived together for 5 years- hehe).
          - shower and meet everyone at hair salon/spa at 12:30PM for hair appt(s).
          - photog arrives at 2:30PM
          - guests are seated from 3:30-3:45
          - ceremony is from 4-4:30PM
          - private white glove cocktail party at Giovatas(sp?) from 4:30-6PM-take more pix!
          - dinner at Fuentes from 6-8PM
          - private chocolate fondue party/cake cutting/reception at covered pool from 8-11PM
          - photog left at 9PM.
          - me and FI go back to room (for "free" decorated jacuzzi and champagne)- friends will probably get in trouble at resort bar until 2AM.....


          I definitely have some work to do-- but it got me thinking!! good post! :)

            re-reading other's posts-- I forgot about lunch-- I guess we have all have lunch together at the salon, maybe?!?! Since all the girls will be there getting their hair done!?!
            Any EDR brides know if this is possible?!?!

                    What's the wine bath spa treatment and you're not weird at all for wanting to spend some quality alone time! :-)
