    My experienced playa girls.... I know you can buy cigars there but does anyone know how much we can expect to spend on some cheap cigars for the reception?

    Also, girls that have used petals... don't they blow away? I really really really want petals but I can't see spending $20 a bag on petals only for them to blow away....

    AHHHH yay girls! You day is coming SO SOON! Be optimistic about the rain. It's your day, nothing can ruin it. Can't wait to see your pictures/read your reviews.

    Welcome back Lady Di!!! I LOVE White One wedding dresses! Great choice!

      Yes ladies, you can have a sand ceremony with a legal wedding! I found out from Julie that me WC in Mexico is Lilia Levet. I hope she's as good as Julie!

            Also, Any opinions on this? Zulma told me she needed 1 week notice on my flower choice in case they needed to be imported, but when I responded with questions in order to help make my decision- she has been MIA again and now its too late to get anything imported.... Do they have to import roses, cali lillies or gerber daisies??
            i'm so sorry to break it to you, but i was a little sad, too, when i found out i couldn't have calla lillies. they don't offer them after april. i was only two weeks into may and was told that there was no way i could get them. i think just the orchids (and any other "exotic" flowers) are imported. the ones in the standard bouquets should be available.

            i just had a symbolic ceremony, but i had a sand ceremony and a hand ceremony. both took place after the vows.

              The sand ceremony is traditionally after the vows and ring exchange. :)

                What's a hand ceremony?

                  it's not really ceremony at all, but that's what they call it (whoever "they" are!). you hold hands and the officiant reads some beautiful words. i'm totally gonna butcher it, but it talks about these being the hands that love and comfort you now, the hands that will hold you family (and your children), the ones that reach for you and hold you now and that they will be the hands that do all of these things when you're old. the real one brings a tear to my eye, but i can't remember it all right now.

                  check out the "post your ceremony" script and there are lots of people there who have incorporated this into their weddings. i haven't posted my script, but a lot of others have. plus, this thread was SUPER helpful when trying to come up with my ceremony. i took bits and pieces from a LOT of the postings, added some of my own stuff and came up with a ceremony that i absolutely loved (and that made our guests cry. a lot).

                    Dianep that is so helpful! I did not even know there was a post for the ceremony script. I have really been struggling with this one. Can't wait to go and check it out.

                    Thats to bad about calla lillies I thought they were around later than May

                      Thanks, i didnt know about this either... I'm totally gonna do it!

                      FI had a change of heart this past weekend and now wants to do a symbolic ceremony (he's Canadian so I guess it will just be easier if we make it legal beforehand).
