  1. I've been back for a few days now...had to get back to normal. Our wedding at Aventura Cove Palace was AMAZING! I could not have asked for anything better. It was windy that day, which was the only thing I would change (but of course couldn't). My coordinator was awesome, the ceremony and reception were beautiful and everyone had a great time. It by far exceeded my expectations! If anyone has any questions, please let me know! I know I was freaking out before we left, but I promise, everything will fall in to place!! I'm happy to answer any questions or give tips on how to make some things go more smoothly, just let me know!
  2. Hmmm....good point. I haven't talked to my photographer, but our ceremony is 4:00, so it'll be over by 4:20....hoping we have enough time for good pics....he says he doesn't see me before, so it'll have to do I guess!
  3. Yea, I told you it was overkill! But it's nice to have it all down so you don't forget pics or anything haha! On the day of I will be happy to have so much detail.....!

  5. Ok, just as a warning, it's a bit overkill My MOH is a wedding planner and really likes details! Haha, hope it helps at least! MexicoWeddingDayTimeline.docx
  6. I I have a super detailed day of itinerary if you're interested.....let me know!
  7. I leave 2 weeks from today---AHHHHHHH!! Not too much today, printing programs, welcome letter, menus, itineraries early next week....finalizing some centerpieces. I feel like I should have more to do! I still haven't heard from my onsite coordinator so I'm freaking out a little about that, but as you've all said, they've done this 1,000 times so it'll be wonderful! What are you guys doing about steaming your dress down there?
  8. OMG I'm sooooo glad all of you are in the same boat! My Fiance's parents booked their tickets yesterday...we leave in 15 days!!!! HELLO! Also one of his groomsmen isn't coming....well we don't think he is, but he hasn't even officially told us either way! It's ridiculous! Ah, it makes me feel better it's not just my peeps....but can't they understand we have to plan and stuff...grrrrrrr!!!!!
  9. Has anyone at Aventura Spa heard from their on-site coordinator? I'm waiting to hear from mine and I leave in 17 days - HOLY S!#T!!!!
  10. Does anyone know if at Aventura you can have someone - a guest - do a reading for you during the ceremony? Also....does anyone know the "events" they do, I'm trying to make my programs! Processional Bride Vows Sand Ceremony Recessional ?????
  11. The songs are definitely stressing me out too! I leave for Mexico in 24 days - CRAZY! I have a few narrowed down, but not sure on all of them.. Are you guys putting them all on an iPod or CD?
  12. I leave it 31 days!!!! I know the feeling! haha
  13. No problem, hope it works out!!! Let me know, I plan on using them too!
