    Leigh - Thank you for the information. I remember a bride goign to WalMart. Does anyone know if they carry food/ how hard it is to get there.

        You can find all the candy you can find in the US in Mexico at walmarts/ 7/11/ and Oxxo's. It may be a little more expensive (by .25 cents) but it may save you having to worry about it melting or give you room to pack other things.

          Hi girls! I just returned from having my wedding at Dreams Cancun and it was absolutely gorgeous! Everything went so perfect & Claudia was amazing! I used the resorts photographer (daniel) and the pictures are breathtaking of us, family and wedding party. I will post some of them once I figure out how to on here, lol.

                The reception is 3 hours. From there you can pay for an extra hour of reception ($$ for DJ, for Drinks and for Reception for each guest) to push 1 extra hour. I am doing dinner from 6-9 (Reception). Giving everyone an hour to freshen up, then the youger (And older if they so choose) crowd will head to desires to finish the celebration there. :) Free DJ and Drinks!. Also this gives everyone some time to freshen up, as well as time alone for the future hubby and me. Just a thought... but your call. A lot of brides on this forum said they were given the extra hour free. I think it depends on how busy the hotel, and stuff...

                 

                Hope this helps.

                  The standard length is 3 hours.  You can extend it to 4 hours but it will cost you - I believe you have to pay the DJ (if you have one) for an extra hour and there is a per person fee for the waiters to keep bringing the drinks.

                   

                  The timing for my wedding day:

                  Ceremony 4:30 to 5:00 pm

                  Cocktail hour 5:30 to 6:30 pm

                  Reception 6:30 to 9:30pm

                   

                  The reception starting at 6:30pm seemed early to me, but considering that the official time for sun set on my wedding day was ~5:05pm, it was plenty dark and had the night time feel.

                    Just about at the 4 month mark, cannot believe how the time has flown, still have so much to do, and I thought I was ahead of the game


                    Happily married and now Mrs. West

                      I know! Congratulations!! Time will fly. I am freaking out because we hit 6 months, but even worse, we are buying a house in 4 months. So i am overwhelmed with both. Have you gotten forms from either Claudia or Cecilia with 'options'?

                       

                      I am trying to figure out what exactly i have to figure out. I know that sounds redundant but I feel a bit lost at the moment!!
                       

                      Thanks..
