  1. Most silks will shrink and loose their texture (become rough) when exposed to any water, let alone salt water. I think it's a safe bet that your dress would be ruined... but isnt that the point??
  2. We played a good "ice breaker" style game - not really bridal shower specific, but it was good because I had 25ish women from different circles. It's the "famous couple" game - when they arrive, everyone gets the name of half of a famous couple pinned to their back, and by asking other ppl questions about themselves, have to figure out who is on their back. ie. someone will get "Brad" and someone else will get "Angelina". Once you figure out who you are, you have to find your match, and the first couple to do so wins. Like I said - not bridal shower specific, but people got to know eachother real quickly! Another fun one was the Lei game - everyone got a flower Lei coming in and were told that you couldn't say words like "Wedding", "Mexico" "(fiance's name)", or do something like cross their legs. If they say/do one of those things and someone catches them, they get their Lei stolen from them. Person with the most Leis at the end wins. This would work equally as well (and more hilariously) with things like sombreros, cheap flip flops, etc. We also played "Pictionary" in teams of 4 with romantic movie titles.
  3. I understand your dilemma, but IMO invitations are a must! We sent out Save the Dates, then a year later we sent out an email with booking information and rates, since the group rates were only good for 2 weeks. We mentioned that a formal invitation would follow, and we sent those out shortly afterwards, but didnt' bother with RSVP cards or inserts (which saved us $$).
  4. I vote after - ppl know you're super busy leading up to it, and a Thank You card with photos from your wedding, especially if they won't be joining you, will be much more appreciated!

Hey there- Just echoing most other posters - I have two bands as well, and I kept my e-ring on my right hand, and hubby put both w-bands on at once. It didnt even occur to me to do otherwise. HOWEVER - a word of caution about the e-ring on the right hand. I wish I would have turned it so that my solitaire faced down, because I find that it stands out quite a bit in the pics of us doing our sand ceremony, signing docs, etc. ie my diamond caught the sunlight quite a bit, however it's on the wrong hand! Just a thought about something I'd do differently
  6. Hey- I'm bummed no one has answered this! I wonder if there's another thread...? I'm currently debating jewelry myself - particularly the "bling" factor...ie, big dangly rhinestone earrings, or sparkly studs, etc. Was just wondering if its normal to go over the top...

Also, if you want you can PM me and I will send you a link to a slideshow that was sent to me of a wedding at the GSRM. Happy planning!
  8. thanks for the suggestions - i never thought that the jewellery would decide, but you're right! silver-toned jewellery= silver shoes
  9. Hey ladies - Since ya'll are muuuuch more fashion savy than I - can you help me with what colour sandals I should get for my bridemaids? This is the dress (in clover green, crinkle chiffon). I was thinking either silver or tan, since I'm not huge on white. Thoughts? Doc1.doc

The wedding was beatiful - although not overly private so if seclusion is something you are big into then I would look at other spots at the hotel aside from the beach... There are two things I would keep in mind - the hotel is a 2 hour bus ride from the cancun airport which is quite significant, and the beach is small (I think it's a man made lagoon and beach). If you have specific questions ask away! The Hey - thanks for the info! we actually decided to go with this resort, so I do have a question! -How large was the wedding you attended, and do you remember which restaurant it was in?

  13. We're doing clover green and white, with orange accents... although i still need an inspiration board!
  14. Hey all - We're strongly considering the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya for our March 2010 wedding, but I'm getting a bit worried that there seems to be no other brides going there! What gives? Is there something I don't know? I'd love to hear from anyone who's either been to a GSRM wedding, or will be hosting one...
