    Holy poop! I can't believe you're leaving in 7 days!!! You must be so freaking excited!! I'm leaving in like 17 and I'm so freaking excited!!! I will be completely crazy by the time I get down to 7 days I think!

    I will continue on with the tables. I just don't like being argumentative. I just don't understand why she's telling me I can't when I KNOW other brides have. Oh well. It won't be the end of the world if I have circular tables I guess.

    So, I've continued to have nightmares about the wedding. I had a horrible one last night that I missed the wedding entirely, and then I had no make up or dress and my hair was a mess. LOL. It was crazy! I've also have had nightmares about driving...LOL. I'm learning how to drive, starting yesterday. Yes, I am 27, and I have never learned to drive. I drove on the road for the first time yesterday though! It was a big accomplishment! Yay for me and all the 16 year olds of the world! LOL!

      Eureaka, I leave on the 14th and return the 25th. I'll also have my laptop, so hopefully I can check the forum once in a while! The second week is going to be at a different resort though!

          Has anyone ever had flowers picked up flowers from somewhere outside of the resort? Just curious because the prices the Moon Palace charges are a little steep.

          I can handle the 150+ for my bouquet, but 100.00 for each bridesmaid (x4) and 45 per boutonniere? We would like to have 11 butonnieres total (one for the groom, one for each groomsmen (x6) and one for his father, his stepdad, my stepdad & one for my godfather who is walking me down the aisle), plus corsages for each of our moms.

          I priced out flowers using the Cancun flower shop and the total for everything came to 450.00 (Moon Palace would be over 1100.00).

          I know the moon palace has a very strict vendor policy....anyone have any advice?
          I am also considering having silk flower bouquets made up here for the bridesmaids to save some money but fresh flowers would definitely be my first choice...

            So, I get "legally" married Friday. My parents, my sister, her husband, my brother and my fiance's parents are coming to the JP's office and then out to dinner after. It's finally hitting me that it's so close!

              Shinbinea, I haven't heard anything about flower vendors - I'm sorry! I would ask maybe your Miami coordinator?

              Honey, congrats! We are getting legally married in Mexico, so we'll have to wait. You must be so excited!

                  I am also concerned about witnesses!!! Does anyone know if they have to be in Cancun 3 days early as well? My TA said they didn't but then I was told they did!!!! If so, I have a problem because all of my guests arrive the day before the wedding.

                    I would double check with your coordinator but as far as I know yes they do need to be in Cancun 3days before - however the resort can provide witnesses if you need them ( I don't think they charge a fee for this but again I would double check)

                    Hope that helps!
                    You must be getting excited - its getting so close!
