Do they serve champagne at the bars upon request, and is that free? Yeah the champagne is usually served on the beach right after the ceremony if there is no cocktail hour, for the cake, some people do it right after and others do it after dinner.

Is there a flower store in Tulum that may be a more cost effective option? Thanks girls! check out page 260 of this thread where I posted pictures of past brides' bouquets. Also on page 1 there is a list of the flowers (and colors) that are available as part of the regular package.

A summary of our "bumps in the road": We paid $150 for the sound system for the ceremony (which lasted 7 minutes by the way) and with the wind and ocean, our guests couldn't hear it any way. Anabel had us pay the day before the ceremony for our "extras" which included 2 ki

  6. Great job! I'm glad you ended up with a product you are happy with considering all the turmoil you went through. And I second Fotofusion (I also ordered it after hearing reading Morgan's thread about it). I'm using it for my photobook (which yes, still isn't done TWO YEARS LATER!) and it's really easy to do. It's great for perfectionists (like me!) who want to be able to control every single detail of their page layouts. Although in the meantime, since I started this project a year and a half ago, Blurb (who I am planning to order my book from) now allows you to customize layouts (i.e. m
  7. I checked and the attachment downloaded fine. If you have enough points, then my guess is that it must be your computer settings. When I click on it, right away I get the small little pop up window that asks me where I want to save the document (the same type of pop up window I get anytime I save anything on my computer, not a window that is particular to this forum). Here is what the attachment says (the ceremony text for legal ceremony) Ladies and gentlemen, according to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of Matrimony which is an honorable st

How in the world is that going to work? Do I need to bring shortened versions of the songs or will
  9. Here is the thread I was thinking of, I guess it wasn't started by playaweddings (paul shrank) but he did respond and there is tons of good info: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...eremony-24483/

I've read through the thread and didn't see anything mentioned. Just thought I'd ask before attempting to email Natalia! Thanks! I've never heard anyone ask that before on this thread (and as you know I've been around forever). It's a great question, make sure to let us know what they say and I'll add it to the info on page 1.

Let me know if there's any info I can gather for you or help you with while I'm down there. Good luck with all your plans. See you in a month! Good luck and enjoy! Can't believe you are going for 3 weeks, you're
  12. Only just now got around to reading this, great review and awesome pictures!
  13. Okay ladies, I have finally gotten around to updating page 1, most of the changes are on the bride list and a few minor changes to the guide (no bonfires anymore and added the menu for the mexican buffet) For the detailed bride info, I am only going to be posting this for brides after their wedding when they post a review. That was the original purpose of this anways, was to help people find reviews and pictures that had the info they were looking for (i.e. review of reception at a particular location, review of photographers, photos of a particular photographer, etc). Sadly, probably on

I'm trying to research how to add photos....I'm going to need to know this for my planning thread. I highly recommend using photobucket for images, I posted instructions on page 1, right before the bride list.
