  1. Welcome. I just got married there on Jan. 8, and it was amazing!! This forum is so much help with everything wedding related. Happy Planning! Aimee
  2. The MAC counter recommended their product "matte" to me. It's different than their "prep & prime" (which is more of a lotion) because it's a clear gel. I loved it the day she put it on for me, but havn't purchased it yet because they were out.

It is weird I know, but in my opinion if you are going to do a TTD you might as well use your real dress! Yep, I recommend it! Actually, I have a TTD dress brand new, sitting in the closet. But it's big, really really big, and I couldn't fit it in any of my luggage, and I didn't like it as much as my real dress. So I solved the problem the easiest way I could think of. Now to sell the TTD, lol! Quote: Originally Posted by vlynnw Ok I have a question about what to do with the dress after the TTD. We will be doing out TTD the morning after our wedding and then that afternoon heading off to another resort. Do you just hang it up until it dries or did you send it somewhere afterwards? I laid my dress over 2 chairs on our balcony. I didn't even rinse it off first, just laid it out to dry. It took about a day (I think... having a hard time remembering, lol). When I brought it home I soaked it in the tub and it took about 4 days to dry! But that is a whole different story. The dry cleaners called- my dress is ready to be picked up, so I'll let you ladies know how clean it is now. I wish I would have taken a "before" picture.
  4. i used my real dress, and LOVED it. what else was i going to do with it? sell it for about 1/2 of what i originally paid? no way, lol. it's been at the dry cleaners for about 2 weeks now... so we'll see if it comes out clean. it was seriously TRASHED after our shoot. Mostly because it was hemmed for me wearing 4-inch heels, and after we jumped in the ocean we rolled around on the beach & I was laying in the driveway in front of a speed bump sign. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
  5. I looked for my fushia heels for MONTHS before I decided. It was so hard to find anything. I would check these sites almost daily: endless.com zappos.com heels.com & seach for only pink shoes. I ended up getting a pair of paris hilton slides from zappos. Happy Hunting!

Now this is getting off subject of the trio but I'm curious...did you convert cash to pesos or just pay with american money? I used american dollars. In fact, I didn't use pesos the whole trip!

I think the years of gymnastics came in handy here. I was barefoot, which helped! Yes, real lobster! Local fisherman let me borrow it for the shot. The first lobster I've ever held- that thing was heavy, and I was waiting for it to start wiggling. Good thing it was dead. Thanks for all the sweet comments everyone.
  8. We had about 30 guests, and a wedding party of 9, so we had 20 seated guests. I thought that it looked okay. Here's some pictures to help you visualize.
  9. We had a mariachi band (I think there were about 10 men) play at the beginning of our cocktail hour, right after the ceremony, while we were taking bridal party pictures. I think that all of our guests loved it, and then we didn't feel so bad about running around and taking pics. I was a little bummed to miss most of their set, because they were amazing. I recommend live music- it was one of my favorite parts of the whole day! I definitely think it's worth having, even with 20 people. Another note that I totally forgot about- if you do have live music & plan to tip them, make sure to get it planned before hand. Maybe give an envelope with cash to a good friend or a parent to give to the musicians. We totally blanked on this one & were bummed later.
  10. oh no!!! i brought in about 50 starfish (from the US) to mexico, and didn't have any problems. i also brought a few home & didn't have any problems then either. i hope you can figure something out! do you have any ideas besides using real starfish? i'm going to think about this one for a while.
  11. we had an engagement ring part of our ceremony, so we exchanged rings, and then he put the e-ring over my wedding band. i was so busy that day that i totally forgot to take off my e-ring earlier, so when the minister asked for the rings, i quickly took off my e-ring & added it to the other 2 (that were in ted's pocket before-hand). lol! hopefully nobody was watching too closely. here's part of our ceremony: Aimee, take this ring, and as you place it on Theodore’s finger, repeat after me: Bride: This ring I give you, as a token of my devotion and love, and with my heart, I pledge to you all that I am. With this ring I marry you again, and continue to join my life to yours. The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. Theodore, place the engagement ring on Aimee’s finger over her wedding band to symbolize the love that brought you together.
  12. Ohmygosh, I love them! I think they would look amazing with you dress.

We had our dancing reception at the beach bar, and ended up dancing in the sand all night. When we went to the disco for the after party, I wore tall white flip flops. But I knew going in that my shoes wouldn't get used much.

Do you mind if I ask what your guests are paying for a week including airfair? My quote was over $2000 with taxes incl. I need something to compare to! Thanks for any help you can give me! I know that the prices are very different based on airfare. We had a direct charter flight and stayed for 10 days and it was about $2500/person. One of our guests flew from South Carolina, stayed 5 days and paid under $700 after insurance & taxes! I think that the time of year has something to do with the prices as well. But I am no expert.
  15. Hey Everyone, Our professional pics are in! Here's a link to our slideshow: http://www.cancunphotosgallery.com/d...=Aimee_and_Ted We had so much fun with Sascha. He is amazing. I'm hoping to get my planning thread going soon, so if you have any questions before then feel free to ask. -Aimee

  17. i'm enjoying a weekend home alone watching silly movies, reading tons of sookie stackhouse, drinking yummy wine, and eating spicy mac & cheese. sometimes i love home alone weekends.
  18. My hair is long & thick, and they work great for me. I do have to fuss with them a little bit to make sure it's totally hidden-- but they are so much easier than ratting your hair, and I love them. If you do decide to try them, pick them up at bed bath & beyond, or walgreens for $10.
