Our photographer was a guest, so they didn't charge us for her day pass but our videographer we had to pay for his pass and his meal.

I was going to give something like that as a gift but I'm wondering if I should also purchase shoes for them to wear in the palapa. Any advice? Thanks Amanda Hi Amanda - The foot jewelery was lots of fun to make. Probably cost me under way under $20 for all of them (I made like 12 pairs) - m
  3. Hey Sara. Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the photos and the thread. My mom's dress was actually custom made in Asia when she traveled there for like $80! . She also got my traditional wedding dress made there too. I think Laura carried some similar gowns to hers though
  4. Hey Marlos - My girlfriend from home is a photographer http://www.jacquelineelizabeth.com/jenny-chris-married/ She did our engagement photos and I loved them so much so she agreed to do our wedding also. It all worked out great! I just can't wait to get the copies now so I can start hanging these lovely photos on the wall http://www.jacquelineelizabeth.com/jenny-chris-trash-dress/ This is the link to our trash the dress.

  6. Quote:Originally Posted by Shera Richer Hi Jypsejenny, Congrats!! The 22nd of April is gonna come quick like the 24th haha. Yes, I did have trouble selecting the date with the resort, I felt like they didn't want to accomodate us and they also said that week was the earliest and since we are doing a legal wedding the 24th was the earliest for us. I'm a little bit frustrated right now because comparing with my friends wedding last april at a dreams resort in riviera maya we are getting way less in our packages than they did for a LOT more money. I know the resort is amazing (been there in
  7. The lanterns were from Dollarama and they were about $2 or $3 each (I can't remember), and the photocoasters were from beau-coup.com (I've ordered from them before and loved the turn around time and all, but this time around I was charged over $50 for customs so I didn't expect that and it brought the unit price up)
  8. Escort & Place 'Cards' Instead of the typical placecards (that might blow away from the wind outdoors) I bought lanterns and tied the cards to them. I wanted all white, but even hitting up over 10 stores they didn't have enough stock. So I got white for the guys and pink for the ladies. Instead of place cards I creeped out all our guests' facebooks for their best photo and popped their faces into coasters. The coasters were at their table setting so they had to find their own face to get to their seat!
  9. Key/Tip Holders Our guests LOVED these! And we saw pretty much everyone use them the whole week. I ordered the tags off http://www.specialistid.com and they were great. I would have ordered the lanyards too but my mom kinda had the material to assemble them so we made the lanyards ourselves.

A girl named Isis did my hair and she was very sweet and tried really hard

I was wondring if anyone decided to go with an outside photographer from Mexico for their wedding. I was looking a the packages available through Adventure Photos, did anyone use their services. thanks! any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Shera Hey Shera - I would not recommend their photographer. They're the same ones that walk around all day taking photos of you with their exotic animals. We stayed there a year before our wedding and took some engagement photos wi

Hi Janelle -we just got married in Aug and we asked all our guests to join us for an optional excursion to Tulum. So we did the walk around the site, and then we went swimming in the ocean there - most beautiful beach I've been on hands down. The sand is soooo soft and the water is perfect. And the tour guide told us that they are closing it off for swimming beginning next year so take advantage! Then we went off to anothe
  13. Mr & Mrs Chair Signs DIY I found these really cute signs on the back of the bride and groom's chairs on Style Me Pretty. So I shopped around for them and man are wedding decor expensive!! I had to just make them myself. What you'll need: - 2 piece of art wood (mine were from the dollarstore. Michael's also has a selection, or just go to Rona and tell them what you want and they'll cut up a bunch of plywood for you) - electric drill - Rope, ribbon, or twine (I used twine that I already had for other crafty stuff I do) - Stain or paint (I just used the leftover paint from when I
