  1. Wow!!! I agree, you should let them know that you think everyone should consult you before purchasing anything else for your wedding. Not because you don’t appreciate their help, but because you don't know what is provided by the resort yet, what other people have already bought, and you don't want them to waist their money on stuff you might not be able to use. We really want to pick out our own accessories so we just let everyone know from the beginning not to buy us any wedding stuff. We really want to pick our own cake topper, guest book, wedding album, etc. so everything matches and flows well. I think everyone understands that. It's your wedding and that doesn't make you a bridezilla, haha.
  2. I can't believe they gave your spot away, that's crazy. I hope that doesn't happen to me. I would probably go to Aventura if it did though. I hear it's really nice.
  3. Wow, that is alot of people already. I agree, I would start working on invitations. I didn't do save the date cards and its been fine. I just sent the invitations out pretty early and made a website where i've been keeping track of the guest list. I have an area on there where everyone can write messages and keep in touch along the way. It's working pretty well.
  4. Yeah, we get back on your day. It's coming up fast!
  5. We went to Paris last September. I thought he might propose there but he's not very creative so when he didn't pop the question on the tower I was sure he wasn't going to, lol. We left the tower and grabbed a bottle of wine and sat in the park under the tower to watch the lights. We were half way threw the bottle, having so much fun when he finally asked. I was so surprised. It was really romantic. He was so nervous and cute. We ran back to our hotel and called everyone right away. A few days later we met up with some friends in Germany for Octoberfest. The first night we drank WAY too much and I LOST THE RING.....yeah I did. I lost it in some shady night club, classy right? Lucky for me he bought a replica for the trip (smart man) and my real ring was safe at home. I will never live it down...
  6. It's nice to see another Calgarian! Anyway, I was on Alesse for awhile and I had no trouble. It's one of the only pills I can use.
  7. I have been with FI for 9 years and we have been living together for 5. It sounds long but we started dating in high school. We are only 25 now.
  8. Thanks for passing this on. I know it will come in handy. I love the inside of the placecards. We are giving everyone little photo albums and something like that would be great to put inside.
  9. I didn't think of that. Have you found alot of people on ebay? I will definatly have to look into that. Thanks for the tip!
  10. Yeah, I saw some pictures from the resort photographer and they looked really nice. I'm still going to look into bringing my own photographer, but if it's too much it's alright. The resort pics put my mind at ease.
  11. I'm also getting married at Moon Palace (Last week of Sept) and then going to the El Dorado for the honeymoon. Since you're going first I might just have some questions for you when you get back, hahaha. Did you go for the Casita's at El Dorado?
  12. If you have decided to go with the resort photographer, have you decided on a package yet? I am still really debating the resort photographer. I'm hoping it's good because I really don't want to spend $4000 extra, but at the same time, the pictures are SO important.
  13. Welcome!!! I'm sure you will get alot of tips here before you choose your location. I'm getting married in the Cancun/ Mayan area so if you need any info on resorts around there let me know. Barb
  14. I'm in the same boat. My sister is my MOH and we arent doing bridesmaids. I really want to incorporate my FI's sister but don't know what to do. I like the idea of incorporating her in a sand ceramony.
