  1. I totally agree that it seems high. I spoke to the resort directly though. Because the chapel was built on the resort property, they want to you to book rooms, as well as your reception there. Because I am having my reception at Casa Natalia, and am booking accommodations there, they said they charge a higher site fee. I also loved the chapel. I am not Catholic, so the big church was not feasible. I thought the chapel would be ideal for our small wedding, but I will not pay that much. I am now looking into a beach ceremony.
  2. This is the chapel at El Canto in San Jose del Cabo. I was quoted a $1600 site fee that was due by cash or check, if you weren't using the resort.
  3. Ok, I'm in. Did 1 and 1/2 hours of Bosu last night at the gym and am going in to do 1 hour of body sculpt and 1 hour of high/low tonight. I need to tone about 10 more pounds and have a year to do it. Unfortunately, I also have a box of Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches calling my name from my freezer. If I can hold out on those, I will be in good shape for today. Also, I weigh myself once a week (at the gym) and today's the day....
  4. I am getting married in San Jose del Cabo, but did a lot of research on Punta Cana before deciding. It looks gorgeous there, and I here it has some of the best beaches in the Carribbean. Congratulations! Where did you plan to be married before?


    Hello and Welcome. There is a post under vendors about someone that did a cruise and the pricing involved. I am looking into this as well. I've seen photos of the Sunset and it is so beautiful!
  6. I totally know what you are going through. I maintained a size 4-6 all the way through a few years ago. I became very unhappy at work and started using food as a way to console myself. Plus, I work extremely odd hours in the hospitality industry, and would pick up fast food or eat something processed on my way home at night which was usually around midnight. Slowly, but surely, I gained weight and found myself at a size 10-12 before I knew what was happening. My appearance made me even more depressed and I just couldn't find the heart to change my lifestyle. Last October, I moved to Madison and started a new job which i am very happy with. In December, I started working out for the first time in my life. I stopped eating fast food and started drinking only water, with an occasional glass of wine here and there as a treat to myself!! I also stopped eating large meals late at night. I started out working out 5 days a week. (3 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off) I won't lie. My muscles were in knots and i had to drag myself out of bed for the first few weeks! I have lost 32 pounds and am back down to the size I started at. I now have to work out only 2-3 times a week to maintain it. The girls advice is totally dead-on. Increase your exercise regiment. At the beginning, cardio is really important. Also, start eating non-processed foods. Raw foods are really good for you! I guess that I really don't believe in "dieting". Losing weight is a total lifestyle change. You just need to jump in both feet first.
  7. Even though my FI's family is pretty big, the family that I am close to is very limited. I didn't want the focus of my wedding to be trying to make rounds and having conversations with relatives like my great aunt Erma who I have only seen once in the last 10 years. I want my wedding to be about the union of two people who love each other and about sharing that with my closest friends and family on a vacation together. Plus, I think it is a great opportunity for all of us to get to know each other as a new family.

    I'm a Newbie!!!

    Congratulations on booking your wedding!
  9. Wow, what beautiful photos! Here are my picks: 9, 31, 34, 51. I think you are absolutely ethreal in #34 and that is probably my favorite! Your photographer did a beautiful job. I love the capitol shots as well. How long did you shoot for?
  10. Thanks so much for the pointers. Is there a vendor list somewhere with florists and their locations?

    Hi Everyone!

    Hi Louisa, I had two friends that honeymooned in Riviera Maya. They both loved it! Congratulations!


    Congratulations! I looked into the Dominican Republic before choosing Cabo. It's looks beautiful. Let us know the details of your planning and if we can be of any help!
  13. We are looking into Tahiti or Maui/ Kauai for our honeymoon.
