    Hi everyone!

    Well, I got my wedding date moved to April 16th so that I am there 3 days before the ceremony....Thanks for the info. shay!!

    Does anyone have any opinion on the mariachi band? I am having a small ceremony...approx 10 guests. I'm not sure if that would be too much for such a small group.

    One more question.....sorry!! Has anyone heard of or used Shasa Gluck Photography? He has been quick to get back with me and his prices are reasonable. I just haven't heard his name mentioned before and was hoping someone had some info.

      Did anyone arrange for group activities when guests arrived? Any recommendations? I'm thinking of doing a welcome cocktail cruise and maybe a tour of Tulum for whoever stays after the wedding. Any recommendation of company's or vendors that handle this type of thing?
      When we were at the Royal in 2005, we went to Cozumel, Xel-Ha, Isla Mujeres Catameran tour and Cancun. We had so much fun in Cozumel. We took the ferry over in the morning - I think it was about $18.00. When we got there we rented a couple jeeps ($65 US for the day, but can be split 4 ways) or mopeds. Then we drove around the island. There were lots of other tourists doing the same thing. There is a couple of snorkeling/scuba parks along the way which are neat. Then we caught the ferry back around 5pm. We've been told that you can now rent Polaris Razors UTVs.
      The Isla Mujeres Catameran tour was awesome too. We bought it out of the lobby of the Gran Porto Real. We took a bus to Cancun, then the boat to the private part of the island. There was a huge slide and snorkeling tours. Then the took us to the public part of the island for a few hours. The whole time on the boat was a huge party with a ton of people.
      Xel-Ha was an awsome park as well - good for snorkeling. We never made it to Xcaret, but we've heard nothing but good things. There are a ton of these tours sold right at the hotel. Oh, and someone mentioned Zip-Line tours too.

                    I know I asked about the Mariachi bands a few posts back.....but I thought of another question. Do they play while you are walking down the aisle, or do you still pick a song to walk to?

                    Thanks!!!

                      Congratulations Geminie! Have fun and I can't wait to hear all about your special day!!!

                      I am still searching for a song to walk down the isle to as well. What songs are you guys planning on using as your first dance? I was also wondering if you are having a MC to direct the reception or if someone from the hotel/DJ does this? What about tipping people. I believe this was touched on a little while back but I am clueless as to how much a typical tip would be to the photographer (we are using Elizabeth Medina), the wedding coordinator at the hotel, band, etc?

                      This blog is so helpful and I too am very excited to see upcoming pictures of the wedding!!!!
