Make sure you bring a pen with you on the plane, I've heard the customs form needs to be filled out on the plane and everyone will be borrowing everyone's pens, so it'll make your life a little easier if you have one. : ) Are you worried about weather?? I know it's out of our hands but I think my biggest streesors right now is the weather and if my luggage shows up. Those are two things I really can't control so maybe that's why they are freaking me out! haha I'm with you...I have all these appointments. I started packing all the wedding stuff (oot bags, photo guest book, lights, décor) in one suitcase and started laying out things. Sunday will be officially packing day. We leave really early Tuesday morning.

I am down to either dressilyme.com and voguepromdress.com and any advice you have or thoughts/expereinces would be helpful! Jill p.s. did anyone that had their reception at Dreams order the Mexican Decorations? This is an option and I don't even know what that means or looks like Hi Jiliann....I did! I bought one from overseas and although it wasn't from any of those online sites you mentioned. It was from China. It was only $200. The dress to me wasn't as important so I didn't mind the not knowing factor. However, once I got it, it just looked cheaply made to me. There was some rips in the material too. Once I took it to the tailor to see what they could do and I was about to spend $400 on alterations, I said screw it for $600 (what would be the dress cost) Im sure I could find something I love instead of fixing something to potentially "just do". I would look some more. When is your wedding? Are you running out of time? I am not getting married at Dreams so can't help you with that, but good luck!
  3. We tip!?? I didn't think of that. There is already tax and service fee on EVERYTHING! hmmmm...crap
  4. Honestly....you look great in your dress from the pic's you posted so I really wouldn't worry about, but I know that's easier said than done....just like cutting out bread! hehe It isn't easy to totally flip the script on eating habits and especially when it's convenient to just join in with the FI and have what he's having, I totally get it. OMG, Etsy is amazing. I have bought so much stuff from there (guest photo book, photo props, favors, etc.) and I am actually thinking of getting the shave kit that someone makes on there for the Best Man and fill it with travel size goodies, just have to double check with the FI. SOOOO EXCITED!
  5. Sehausle OMG, your dress is amazing!!!!!! Sorry to hear about your RSVP's...We are getting married October 4th in Tulum at La Zebra, I made our RSVP date July 15th and we are done, final count 43. I have pretty much everything major done and go for what could be my final fitting today if I am good with everything. My body shouldn't change much. I'm a health nut & blogger about it as well as one of those obsessed crossfitters. What I would recommend to you is that you cut the bad sugars (lay off fruit), grains (wheat, starches), dairy, and any beverage other than coffee, tea or water. Eat more green leafy veggies and watch your portions. Not sure what you already do but if watch those things you could see a difference I'm sure. Hope that helps. I am almost done with arranging shuttles. The little things I have left are my gifts for the MOH & BM and printing a couple things on cardstock and making the final payments. Things are good and I CAN NOT WAIT to be in paradise w/ our family & friends.
  6. LIann03, there is a forum on here, search scavenger hunt. I got a ton of ideas from it and then looked up an APP for smart phones and created a scavenger hunt game for our wedding weekend festivities with a start & end date and time. Every thing is points based, you post a pic, you can see the other teams leader boards, etc. I'm sending out all this info to our guests in a Newsletter with pics of the app to download and then I'm also including a list of the things to hunt/find and their point value in our Welcome Bags so people without smart phones can play if they would like, use their digital camera and email me the photos. We said the winner will be announced when we return home and a prize will be mailed out. Thinking about picking up some sort of cool souvenir there for the winner(s) Happy Planning!
  7. Thank you for your help!!! I'm about 2 1/2 months out now...so it's crunch time! lol
  8. @TMDAVIS13 Thanks for the review and your pictures look amazing!!! Did you have any issues bringing all your OOT bag stuff into Mexico? Who was your DJ? Thanks! Amanda
  9. I am getting married October 4th at La Zebra in Tulum, MX!!! Very excited!!! 88 more days!!! I feel like it's all the little things I need to take care of now...AND pay the $$$ haha! Happy planning everyone!
  10. It seems lately that my wedding contact/coordinator at my venue has been really delayed in responding to my emails. For instance, over 12 days late to respond or acknowledge my email! I consider myself a pretty laid back bride...I know that if they had a bridezilla on their hands that this delayed response might not fly so well... I'm a little over 3 months out until the big day in Tulum...Is anyone else having this issue?? I've made mention of this delayed response the last two times this has happened and they apologize saying they are busy with wedding....well I should be one of those weddings, right? I trust them and I feel like on the big day everything will be fine, it's just the waiting time to me is really bugging me!!! Okay, thanks for the vent session!
  11. Love these templetes!!! The Advil one is cute too! I need more points!!
  12. http://www.usa-transfers.com/ This is who I plan on using
  13. Helllloooooo there.... Anyone use DJ Fermix? I searched and only saw one short review...wondering if anyone has any input. Thanks!
  14. Hello! I'm new to this site and thought I could pick your brains! I am about to sign my contract with La Zebra and fork over my deposit that holds the whole resort for our wedding. I have some concerns with the contract so I wanted to see if any of you could give me some feedback on it. 1. Giving all the money upfront. I understand putting down a deposit and I understand maybe paying 1/2 of the whole wedding costs before arrival...but paying the whole thing before it even happens...it feels a little uneasy to me. I trust them and I have been speaking with an awesome contact over there but I just wanted to know how you all felt about it too. 2. The cancelation policy. It is all over the board in the contract and contradicting. I would not hold them responsible for any natural disaster but some parts in the contract they say they will reschedule the event within a years time and no refund and some places it just says no refund. I plan on buying travel insurance and i plan on adressing my concerns with my contact, i just wanted to see how you all felt about this or did you have the same concerns. Thanks!
