    Where is your ceremony again? If I remember correctly, the sun starts dipping below the resort at about four to five and it cools considerably due to the shadow. By the time our reception started at six it was perfect. ill try to find pics at that time
    yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

      Lynnie, it's at the beach by Pelicanos.

      Lisa, OMG, that is AWESOME. I so want to do both! I wasn't sure if you were talking about The Royal but do they offer this kind of excursions?

        Oh, that is a good area, shouldn't be too busy by 4pm. And you can sign up for those excursions at the Royal. There is a big area just off the lobby where there are a bunch of tour groups signing people up. They have HUGE books to look through. One day we went up there at 8am, signed up, paid and we were on the bus by 8:30 to the Mayan Extreme (just like the Tulum Extreme) Its very very easy!
        yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

            I'm sure they do, Diana (sounds like Lynnie did the Tulum Extreme one). Usually they will have a few companies set up and you can go talk to the concierge or tour operator and they will set you up for a specific day and pick you up early in the morning. I would suggest doing any snorkeling excursions AFTER the wedding or you will end up having a bar (tan line) down your back (possibly)...I dont think I got one, but FI definitely did lol (its from the snorkeling vest which makes a sort of "T" on your back). Ya know, just in case you are wearing a strapless lol

              start of the freshwater to ocean inlet (just amazing) I took a pic of the sign and you swim the entire thing from the red dot at top, to where it says Yakul Lagoon at bottom

              and the freshwater start

              I don't have many more because we ran out of film on this excursion..boo! But i loved it

              They take you to 2-3 more snorkeling spots which are cool

              I have usually signed up for these at the resort through concierge

              Lisa,

              You're ADORABLE, I loved these pictures! Do you think that was too much to cram into one day? How far was it from your resort? Wow I'm question bombing people today. Thanks for all your help ladies!

                Lynnie, thanks so much for your input.

                Definitely will do any water related stuff after the wedding! Problem, we don't have enough days to do everything. Boo.

                  :-)

                  I did the Extreme one two years ago and the Snorkeling Adventure last year. They usually pick you up around 8:30 am and have you back between 3-5. They also provide lunch.

                  From playa to akumal it was about 35 min? and maybe 45-50 to Tulum? It's not bad though because it's cool to look around town and also chat with other people in the van (it will probably be better when we get married because maybe it will be our friends/family joining us). Definitely have that biodegradeable bugspray/sunscreen around the jungle and ruins (tons of mosquitos).

                  Take some disposable water cameras, but if not, they have a professional photographer documenting the whole thing (not in the water though) and they will make a CD of pics of you for like 20 USD.

                  Oh and uh...lol....if you are in a snorkeling group (and you see other ones)- play close attention while snorkeling and don't rendezvous with the wrong group like I did (I could hear my group leader yelling my name from a distance)


                  p.s. most places will provide snorkeling gear for you (but I'm ooged out by the thought of placing my mouth where someone's else's was, so I bought this and love it..darnit they didnt have pink though) It has a valve that helps you purge and it closes if you go underwater:

                    CandiceMarie - thanks so much for the info about the maracas, I just emailed them. I need btwn 40 an 50 pairs so I'm trying to see what they can do. My colors are purple and blue but I think if we put the other colors with the exception of red (my least fav color) on the tables it will add more life to the tables.

                    Jesmcan - love your invites, beautiful and very personal!! I had passport invites made but added ribbon to them and had my MOH (sister) and FI in assmbely line doing the ribbon and stuffing. I think they were nice to me only bc they knew I would become a bridezilla if they said a word LOL

                    LisaDso - your new siggy pic is too funny!
                    AHAHAAH good call I should have thought of that :)
