  3. Definitely no regrets doing TTD and what a fun way to wash my dress! Came out super clean
  4. We also had our "legal signing" (I don't even want to call it wedding lol) here in BC, and we actually had it at home. We invited 2 close relatives that could not make it to Mexico for dinner and they were very surprised when they found out what was really happening that night Our Marriage Commissioner breezed through her part, we said I do, exchanged rings, and did the signatures. It was very informal and didn't take very long at all.
  5. Hi ladies! I agree with Lin, best to book once you get there, esp if the weather changes once you get there. We also worked with Hugo (Transat) and he was great. They also have other tour companies at the lobby and Hugo matched their prices for us (since half of our group did not book with Transat). We did the Isla Mujeres Catamaran ride, it was great! Isla Mujeres is gorgeous and we found the markets there actually cheaper than Playa or Cancun for souvenirs, just a tip Snorkeling was part of the tour but the water was really choppy so I kinda got panicky in the water lol. We also d
  6. I wanted to share pics of this Maggie Sottero dress from our wedding 2 weeks ago Changed the neckline to sweetheart, worked out really well! Lia & Bryan {Married in Mexico} Kim Kalyn Photography
  7. Yay! my turn to return the favor The only thing I wouldn't do again is wishing we just eloped because of all the stress with planning the wedding! All the stress was totally worth it in the end and would do it all over again! I would: - do a destination wedding - best decision we ever made We all had such an awesome time we didn't want the week to end! - do first look pictures - it was really nice to spend such an intimate and private moment together, and calm our nerves before the ceremony - use parasols instead of bouquets for BM's - inexpensive yet turned out so beautiful!
  8. Have an awesome wedding Nadine!!! Just got back 2 days ago and loved Mexico! Weather in December is great Have the best New Year's Eve party too!
  9. Hola ladies!!!! OMG I can't believe it's my turn to write my review after a year and a bit of planning Our wedding week was great and the wedding was awesome!!! WARNING: Super long! Ocean Turquesa was excellent! My biggest worry about this place was the seaweed but honestly once we got there, it was not a big deal at all! I would describe it as seagrass and the water was so clear and light blue, it didn't really bother us at all. The staff was amazing too! Everyone was so helpful and friendly, and were so grateful when we gave them tips (mind you, they didn't go around expecting tip
  10. We leave on Sunday and I am so nervous and excited at the same time I can't believe it's less than a week for us! It may not be as cold here in BC as in AB, Nadine, but I agree with you, can't wait to leave the coooold weather!!!
  11. Thanks Lin for sharing your experience with the salon I will definitely bring lots of pictures and hope for the best! We leave on Sunday Dec. 13th, 8 more days! I cannot wait to meet Ana in person, I'm sure that will ease my stress
  12. Hi Nadine, I got my H1N1 flu shot but FI didn't... the travel doctor didn't push it either. I figured I will be at airports and will be on planes, so more likely to get some sort of virus, mind you, I do have history of asthma, so that makes me part of the high risk group. I guess it is very much a personal choice.
  13. CONGRATULATIONS Lin and new hubby!!! Wow your wedding looked so amazing and you looked so beautiful! I agree with Katie, your dress is gorgeous I love your wedding colours too! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, it is soooo helpful! So glad to hear everything went well! I am glad to hear Villa Marina has good food, that's where we are having our semi-private reception dinner, and I am planning on choosing the beef and shrimp skewer entree yum! I had a couple of questions if you don't mind, your hair looked so pretty, did you get it done at the resort salon? Did
