    It would be great to meet up with all you ladies who will be there, I guess we will bump into each other, but if I dont see you, all the best for your weddings!! If anyone has anything they want me to find out while we are there, just shout!!

    Yay, Anna! Can't believe you're leaving tomorrow for EDR. Mandy and I are anxious to meet you and Shannon and to celebrate all these wonderful weddings! Happy travels.

Then you just cash out and they will send you a check or you can get it direct deposited into paypal account if you have one. It great if you don't need alot of household items and your registry is small. That is why we did it. People thought it was a great idea for the shower.
      Great, o.k than maybe we'll consider it too. It really does seem like a nice alternative to a gift registry. Especially since we couldn't imagine owning anymore cooking appliances, which I never even end up using anyway, thanks for your post.

      Congrats to you by the way, Your day is so close. How exciting!!

        Has anyone gone with the Free Wedding Dinner at Fuentes. I was thinking about using this for our Rehearsel Dinner. Just curious to know which choices you went with on the 2 main courses & the 1 desert. Thanks.

          My daughter is doing her dinner at Fuentes. She chose 2 starters rather than 1 starter and 1 soup - Caesar salad & salmon ceviche, penne pasta w/ shrimp and achiote-marinated turkey breast for the main courses and tres leches w/ strawberries for dessert. I'll let you know how everything tasted when we return. We are having the private dessert buffet and dance after dinner, so didn't worry too much about the dessert.

            We are having ours at Fuentes the night before our wedding. We are using that as a rehearsal dinner. It is a little more casual then El Cocotol's but we like the menu choices there. I can let you know how it was when I return on June 2.

                Does anyone know or remember seeing pics of a ceremony in the garden gazebo? I have pics of the empty gazebo, I just wanted to find some of an actual wedding occuring there.

                  We didn't do our dinner at Fuentes but we ate there and DH thought the Mahi mahi was really good. I had the pasta primavera which was pretty basic, and very peppery (black pepper, not the vegetable pepper).

                  The appetizers, the grilled faro of veggies was kinda gross and the gazepacho with red fruits tasted like strawberry juice in a bowl. Everyone else seemed to really like it there but for vegetarians it wasn't too fantastic.

                    Mrs V-to-be - I think we might have stayed next to each other in the 27 block. I thought it was you but wasn't sure, I was in 2702.
