  1. Hey Ladies - Just got back from Playa and we had an absolutely amazing time. Yamina is the absolute best and you have NOTHING to worry about. She is a professional in every respect and she loves what she does so no need to stress about anything. We had over 80 guests and although we held most activities at the EPM we had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Villa next door. I'll try to write a review soon. In the meantime, all the best with your planning!
  2. So grateful for this thread! I am a week away from our wedding and we haven't gotten to this yet. Thanks so much ladies, your scripts are very inspiring.

We rented out the the villa next to the EPM for the ceremony and reception, but the welcome dinner and other activities will be a the EPM. We were there for Xmas and met with Yamina, she's so fab and so is the resort. Didn't want to leave! I will be meeting her early next week to sort out details, details. I'll provide a full run down when I get back. Days to go. Yikes!
  4. 15 more days till the big day and 10 more days before arriving at EPM. Got lots to do but finally getting excited. We've got 98 guests coming. Eeeeks!
  5. Jess - Thanks so much. I have been in touch with Yamina over the months as we were negotiating and finalizing the bigger ticket items with her. Actually just got an email with her today so we'll start sending her photos and ideas and finalize when we get there. You're wedding date is coming up fast. Good luck!
  6. Ladies - FI and I took the plunge and ordered his and the GM suites from studiosuits. We got them back within 4 weeks but half the suits don't fit according to the meansurements including my FI and I made sure we had a professional tailor measure him. The pants and sleeves come up short and the pants are baggy in the butt and thigh. I submitted a complaint to them to see what they can do but we have about 7 weeks left now so we are working on a plan B. I'm really, really disappointed cos we spent so much money and most other people had rave reviews. We purchased 8 suits from them. Grrrrr!!!!! Any ideas on what stores are carrying linen suits this year?
  7. THope thanks for sharing! Ladies how close to the wedding did you really start working on details with Yamina? Did you get everything sorted out once you arrived or did you start sending her photos? We're have a pretty large wedding (100 guests) so I'm starting to think it's about time I get things rolling.

Juan Navarros Blog Blog Oh wow THope. Love your photos. Absolutely love you dress! I can't wait...61 more days to go. Yamina still looks as cute as ever.
  9. THope keeping my fingers crossed for you. It's going to be an amazing time. Seems like you've got it all under control.
  10. Trying to sort out my list now actually. I have 100 to do as we're having a pretty large wedding. Trying to control my excitement about all that could go in them.
  11. Thanks ladies! This is really helpful. Granted I can get this stuff in the US before leaving by already have more than enough lug down to Mexico. We are having 120 guests join us so we need quite a bit of stuff to fill our OOT bags.
  12. I've seen Costco in Cancun mentioned in various threads but couldn't find a thread dedicated to it. Does anyone know what the Costco in Cancun stocks? I have a lot of OOT bags to make and would really rather purchase the heavy stuff (e.g. snacks) when we get down there versus hauling it all the way. Any feedback would be great.
  13. Ladies what's your plan for hair and makeup at the resort? Are you using the resort spa? Any recommendations. This is just one of the many things I've just thought about.
  14. I read this thread and wonder if I should a. panic or b. cry! LOL! I have a laundry list of stuff to do. I'm currently overseas and get back Stateside sometime in early July. I'm doing so much stuff online, over email and through friends. Ugh! That said we have a huge guest list, over 230 and we are expecting about 150 to show. That said it's annoying that guests are so last minute about booking their hotel rooms. We have about 30 booked right now. I keep pinging people to see what they're thinking and they all say oh we are for sure coming. If only they would at least RSVP!!!! Granted a significant number of our guests are coming from overseas as well, I just wish they'd book already! I want to order fans and favours and OOT bags and have no clue how many I should buy. Sure don't want to waste money buying too many. Geez. I think I'm going to pick a number and go with it. Anyone who doesn't get an OOT bag for waiting last minute - oh well!
  15. Now that you have asked the question I had to check and I'm going to be making a total of 100!!! Yes that is a large number but we are somehow having a large destination wedding. So couples will get one bag with enough stuff for two people to share and singles will get one each. I'm actually considering gable boxes suggested by a few other brides on another forum versus bags. I'm excited to make them but have to figure out what's going in them cos it'll start to add up in cost and in weight.
