  1. Oops, I don't know why it didn't work on the last post. My Wedding Planner.xlsx
  2. Here is a copy of the "wedding planner" that I received. The prices might be out of date at this point though?
  3. Hi ladies, I've just returned from 10 days at EPM. The wedding was fabulous, a dream come true. To be honest, I'm kind of sad that it's all over now! I do have some news - Yamina is no longer working at EPM. I was a little bit nervous because I had been in contact with her for probably over 1 year and when I got there... she wasn't there anymore. WOW. But not to worry, Norma and Ileana worked together and they said that Yamina left everything in order. Out of all of the details that I had discussed with Yamina, there was only one small detail that they didn't already know about. One of my guests needed a special menu. It was not problem, whatsoever, though. I found out that Norma is actually the wedding coordinator from the sister property, La Amada (which is literally right next door if any of you are looking for a place for guests with children to stay) so I'm not sure if she is just temporarily filling in at EPM or if she will be a permanent replacement. Regardless of who your wedding coordinator is, I would rest assured that they will handle every little detail for you! I do feel bad for the fact that you brides who are still in the planning process don't really have anyone to contact though... eek. What I would do is fill out that wedding planning packet that you should have received in the email and then write a list of questions and keep adding to it until you have someone to contact. You also have great references here, so let me know if I can help. Overall though I want to let you guys know that there is no need to worry because they will take care of it - whatever it is. You will have your dream day here. I'll write a full review pretty soon here but for right now I have some unpacking to do... my least favorite part of traveling!
  4. Hi ladies, Quick post from Cancun... The weather is B-E-A-Utiful, so I wouldn't worry. I've been here since the 7th and can tell you that we've had almost all clear sunny days. There was one night where we had a quick 10-20 min rain shower around 9PM and one morning that was DUMPING rain with thunder and lightening but all was clear and sunny by noon. I wouldn't sweat the weather! Scattered thunderstorms means that they might pass over your area but they don't hang around for too long. Everything has been SOOO amazing! More details to follow when I get back home in a few days. I hope that all of you other June 11 brides had an amazing time too and best wishes to the few of you who are still coming up!!!
  5. Leaving tonight around 3AM! I can't believe that the day has finally come. Ladies, thank you all for all of the support and advice along the way. I can't wait to share my experience with you guys when I get back and I hope that all of you will share too. CHEERS!
  6. Congrats Nicole and good choice! I'm leaving for the resort tonight/tomorrow- 3AM! I am beyond excited! I promise to share lots of details when I return. 5 days from now, I'll be walking the sandy shore with my husband!
  7. that is where i got them, i'm not sure if they still have them anymore
  8. when i bought them, they were in the bargain bins in the front of the store near the entrance.
  9. OMG OMG OMG I'm legally a wifey, a missus, his old lady! I wanted to save all of the theatrics for our Mexico wedding, and even though we didn't even exchange rings today, I still cried the whole way through the ceremony HAPPY TEARS OF COURSE! As soon as he looked into my eyes and said "I, Marc..." the tears started flowing. It's raining cats and dogs here in Seattle, but they say "a wet knot is harder to untie." I just hope that I got all of the waterworks (both tears and rain) out of the way so that everything is nice and dry for our Mexico wedding in T-Minus 9 days, flying out in 5 days!
  10. I'm worried about the weather too! I'm from Seattle so... I really, really, really can't have rain. I need it to be sunny. I will be so depressed if the weather is yucky

  12. Steph, I'm sorry but I have to laugh a little at this because I can totally relate. I think that the procrastination factor is deeply ingrained somewhere in that Y chromosome! My FI still hasn't gotten gifts for his guys yet. I'd be freaking out if I didn't have gifts for my girls! But something about men makes it so that they don't sweat it until the very last minute and I think many a womankind turns into the nagging wife and can be driven crazy by this factor. What can ya do? I just try to remind, remind, remind, set deadlines (sometimes purposely extra early) and stress to him when something is really important and when I really need him to be on his A game. I think part of being a wife, in some cases, means running the show behind the scenes (if that makes sense?) That's what it means for me anyway! I have a passive, kinda lazy guy - but I love him to death and that's really all that matters... Congrats on the final fitting! It's the best feeling to have a dress that fits you perfectly, isn't it!
  13. Jessica, It all looks really great. Your details are so well pulled together. You're such an early bird! No procrastinating for you, huh? I bet your guests will be amazed by all of the work that you've put in. Thanks for sharing so much with us and I cannot wait until it's your turn to report back as a Mrs!!
  14. WOW it's all hitting me now.... Our legal ceremony is on Thursday - the day after tomorrow we will officially be MARRIED! So excited.
  15. Steph, I think every bride feels that way at one point or another during the planning process. You're definitely not alone! For me, I hit that patch several months ago. Now, I'm feeling pretty chill, a bit anxious, definitely excited! Not regretful though. I think you just need to take a few deep breaths, maybe make a to do list just to manage some of the anxiety that you're feeling and remember that above all else, the only thing that matters is that you and FI will be there... committing yourselves to each other. That's what it's all about in the long run, not about all of the details that are so easy to fuss and fret over. No matter what happens with all of the vendors and favors and guests, this will be the most memorable and one of the best days of your life! Soon enough, the "I do"s will be said, rings will be on your fingers and all you will have are memories of this wonderful time in your life.
