  1. Thanks for such sweet notes girls! Let me know if you have any questions on those vendors!!! (Btw, on the hair -- my hair stylist at home came up with it!! It was super easy. I just put hot rollers in my hair and then velcro rollers on top for volume. We swooshed the hair over to one side and secured it with booby pins at the top and on the bottom, and then just wrapped a piece of hair around the pony. Voila! I did have to put hot rollers back in the pony after I finished the photos, though. *g*)
  2. Hello everyone! I am back from my wedding/honeymoon in Los Cabos and hoping my tan will last me through the cold weather this winter. I had a FAB time and wanted to share my thoughts/comments/experiences with all of you all. CASA DEL MAR General: We got married on Oct. 14 at 5:45 p.m. The hotel grounds are incredibly beautiful and a great deal for the price. We had to book 10 rooms in order to waive the site fee and got upgraded to the "honeymoon suite" for our entire stay. The only downside is that the hotel is undergoing MAJOR renovations, so there was some construction noise. Bu
  3. Ohhh, those sound like so much fun! Who did you use for the deep sea fishing and did they like it? My FI and his brothers and dad want to do that but they have yet to set it up (of course.) Also, who did you use for the snorkel/sailing trip?? That's on my list of things to do. We are just doing a girls night out on Thursday night. Most of our guests will only be there three or four days and we don't want to force them to do too much wedding/group stuff!
  4. Hah! That could very well be. I had asked her that question, and she just said that maybe it was information for a different state, but that she's been doing weddings since 1995 blah blah blah. Down from the ledge (thank you girls!!!!!!) but I still think it sounds a little shady!
  5. Ok, weird -- Anyone else using Maye that could shed some light on this? I just talked to her and expressed all of my concerns. She said that I did NOT need to get my birth certificate apostilled. () And that the judge would take even a photo copy of my birth certificate! She also said that my birth certificate did NOT need to be translated. (more ) And she said that I could just tell her my blood type and the doctor would make an official certificate saying what it was. She said that she would translate and apostille my marriage certificate if I wanted to. All this sounds a little
  6. Yes, of course I see the posts now! I figured that Maye was taking care of everything and didn't realize there was stuff that needed to be done on my end, and she never mentioned anything about it. When I first signed up with her, at the very beginning of planning, I asked her what I needed to do to make everything legal. She just sent me a little form to fill out and said she needed copies of my birth certificate and passport. Nothing else!!!! So I thought I didn't need to worry, but now I'm realizing that I do!
  7. Hey girls, fyi: http://portal.sre.gob.mx/was_eng/ind...=page&SubMenu= This is from the site of the Mexican Consulate in D.C. It is possible that Maye is taking care of some of this stuff ... HOWEVER, she has not informed me that she is! I mean, I wrote her an e-mail freaking out about it and asked her to explain everything to me, and she just said that I needed to send her our blood type. That does not make me feel better, as she's been careless several other times regarding our invoices. (Double-charging me for tax, forgetting to put things on the invoice, making some updates
  8. Hey girls -- So I'm supposed to be getting married NEXT WEEK,and a friend just sent me this little blurb from the State Dept. Web site: I am an American citizen planning to get married in Mexico and have been told that I need a copy of my birth certificate with an "apostille." What is an apostille, and how do I get one? An apostille is a certification that is valid for use in a foreign country. Information regarding authentication or legalization of documents, including how to obtain an apostille, is available at http://travel.state.gov/law/notarial...ntication.html Ummmm
  9. Hey girls, has anyone eaten at Damiana? Just curious about what the food and the service is like. .... Thanks!
  10. I adore cupcakes! In fact, they are my favorite dessert. Frequently I get cupcake cravings at night and have to go to one of the local bakeries here and get them! I was also totally set for getting cupcakes for my wedding ... BUT when I asked the hotel how much it would be, they said it would be MORE expensive than the cake!!!! I was in disbelief. I tried to negotiate them down but no luck. (I don't even remember the number now, it was so long ago.) But I was really disappointed and am just going ot have a regular cake b/c it's cheaper.
  11. Hey guys! I'm bringing an independent photographer (a friend of mine) from the U.S. to take pix at my wedding. My hotel coordinator said he needs some sort of work permits ...! Anybody heard about this before? I want to make sure he doesn't get stopped and, well, who knows! Thanks ladies! Ylan Casa del Mar www.adamandylan.com
