  1. Kathy, Did you have your makeup done at the Spa?
  2. Wow best review yet - I don't know how I missed it earlier! Thank you - I will be married there in 10 days and you calmed my nerves

    Tipping, Etiquette, and other info!

    I've been to Cuba a couple times. They do appreciate cash tips - take lots of US $1's. I also gave the maid a Clinique (perfume/lotion/makeup) each day last trip and she hugged me everytime she saw me. We always bring crayons & "dinky cars" (not sure what you call them these days) for the kids.
  4. Grand Bride - Great question about tips. I was wondering the same. I'm also having Claudia for photos (5 hour package).
  5. Thanks so much, I'm glad you think the tequila bar is a good idea...I've had mixed reviews from my friends...but its us! We are pretty casual people. Actually having painted tin buckets at the ceremony - as my married name will be "BEACH" we painted Beach wedding and the date....will have cold coronas and waters at the ends of the aisles. Thank you so much for the excursion information - you know I put excursion information on our website as well but without ever being to this area of Mexico ourselves I have no idea what is recommended. Seems like a lot to do! derekandkyla.weddingwindow.com IMG_2295.zip ceremony buckets.zip
  6. Barefoot in the Sand - your scrapbooks sound amazing, now that is a perfect gift! We leave for our wedding in 2 weeks from today for the Del Mar! We have approx 45 people now (16 booked in last 2 days - great sales). We are doing the Gazebo ceremony and hiring the mariachis. Dinner at the Italian restaurant (private event) with a DJ and tequila bar for **kissing** I'll post our travel mugs - just got them in. I've never stayed in this area of Mexico so if anyone has any advise, excursion ideas etc fire away .
  7. We are leaving our fans open on the chairs - saw that on a photographers website and they looked great!

    Local Mexican Gift Bags for Guests

    Thanks for the ideas! We are going to get them thru the resort hopefully or thru Mexican Convention Service. If this doesn't turn out I will be hitting the local walmart! Also getting either maracas from Mishka Designs (although I believe its only a good option if you are near Puerto Vallarta - to "Shake at the Kiss" http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Jtt8Qgru2gw/SwHQDAozSrI/AAAAAAAADJo/8XDRFfwD_kw/s400/Emily.01.jpg&imgrefurl=http://mishkadesignspv.blogspot.com/&usg=__rH85PSuYbT9InruHXrShfz7F-PQ=&h=298&w=400&sz=28&hl=en&start=5&um=1&tbnid=ZpP RTSxoOrOgBM:&tbnh=92&tbnw=124&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dmishka%2Bdesigns%2Bmaracas%26hl%3Den% 26rlz%3D1T4DACA_enCA216CA216%26um%3D1 or Fans from Weddingchannel.com Buy Wedding Personalized Sandalwood Fan - Wedding Personalized Sandalwood Fan Online - Discount Wedding Personalized Sandalwood Fan Mexican Gifts.ppt
  9. Mexican Wedding Traditions: Is anyone doing some sort of "Mexican" tradition for their ceremony? We were reading about a few... A lazo (lasso), is a large rosary, a decorated cord that is symbolically draped around the necks or shoulders of the bride and the groom Piniata Mexican wedding often feature a heart shaped piniata. Arras - Thirteen gold coins The groom gives the bride thirteen gold coins blessed by the priest. Doing so, he also pledges to be a good provider and to support and care for his bride as she becomes his wife. If anyone has a pictures or suggestions we'd love to hear them. Hoping to do something symbolic for the country we are marrying in ~ 6 WEEKS TO GO.
  10. Anyone know of a local shop that does up "Mexican" guest gift bags? I can't find the name but heard there is a place that will do up bags filled with 3 of the following: Mexican candies, Tequila, Hot Sauce, Kahlua Thanks!
  11. Those are the nicest ones I've seen yet! Great Job ~ and they can be used throughout the rest of their holiday! Thank you for sharing.
