    Hi -
    We used Cancun Discounts Catamaran Tour and I would give them an A+.
    45' Catamaran in Playa del Carmen - Private Charters

    We loved, loved, loved, loved it! We and our guests had a fabulous time when we did the tour the day before the wedding. It was a 4 hour swimming and snorkeling adventure on a 45-foot catamaran. The crew was hilarious, fun and entertaining. This was such a highlight for our guests, they couldn't stop talking about it...even now. Many said this was the perfect way to get to know each other before the wedding. Of the catamaran tours we researched, this was not the cheapest one we found (price is listed on the website) but we had so much fun it was worth every penny.

    No free t-shirts. If I remember correctly, the bride that you are referring to had the t-shirts made for the guests. If you have further questions, let me know.

      Ooh i havent come across that one. Thanks for the link!


      Regarding my name change, I polled my 5 brothers last night and the general consensus (minus one brother) was to just take his name only. The two arguments that won me over was this:

      one brother is an accountant and works with IRS stuff - he said it was much simpler to change

      2nd brother works at a bank and said bank cards are limited to 15 characters and if i have both of my names, it would be 20 letters long....LOL!

      so I'm just gonna take his name

            You bet! We just had basic munchies. It included chips, guacamole, salsa, and fresh fruit platters. Nothing fancy but it hit the spot after floating around in the ocean.

              Hi Ladies!

              I haven’t been on here in a while, but my wedding date is only 3 months away so I’m back in planning mode!

              Advice…it is MUCH less stressful to do individual bookings than group. My FI insisted on a group (which we ended up with 15 rooms) but still people haven’t booked (despite the June 30 deadline on my invite). So now we have to put additional money to continue to hold the rooms. A lot of people said they were coming and are now deciding not to. We seem to be getting a lot of mixed reactions from family and friends about the location. People are either very excited or p-od at us for having it far away and it being “expensive” but people don’t understand the value of a nice all-inclusive! GRRR…I just wanted to get that off my chest :)

              I just got an email from Angie Silva from the new website they are using. I didn’t even know until then that the US offices closed! I wonder if she will be the local WC at the time of the wedding?

              Love everyone’s pictures…they are gorgeous!!

                Thanks for the tip, doing the Catamaran sounds so much fun!

Especially with this new on line site. They will be able to keep track of all communications. Hang in there ladies just remember everyone before us had the wedding of their dreams and we will to.
                  I really am trying. I just got access to the online site TODAY.
                  Ok, so I found out today that you have up to 6 months after getting married to change your name on your passport for free. Thought all of you would be interested in this. Hope it helps.
                  Duprk, is this if your passport is new? I didn't think it applied if you already had one?

                  I said I was going to hyphenate. My FI was ok with that. One of his friends decided to lecture me on that not being the right thing to do and telling me what he and his wife did. I told him I was glad that it worked out for them, but my man and I had a plan that was going to work for us, LOL! He backed off then. I'm keeping my name because professionally, I'm known by it and because my natural father,paternal grandmother and paternal grandfather are deceased and it makes me feel close to them.
