Welcome back Jess! I can't wait for your pics and review!
mrsg2b - LOVE the dress!!! If you can do it, then do it!
Welcome back and CONGRATS Jes!! I need to go find your review and planning thread asap! haha Well assuming they're already up!
Sorry, to everyone that is dealing with friends and family not coming or backing out...I would be devasted if my parents could not make it.
A little bit of my own "situation" -
My mom has been worried since they day I told her we are going to do a DW in Mexico. She finds a lot of different reasons to question why we are having it there. BUT then she got really excited (and I guess felt like it was actually real) when she received the STD in the mail and checked out our website. She does not do a whole lot of traveling and until recently never flew except maybe every five or so years! I don't think she's ever been out of the country either! Things are looking up - her good friend told her today that she and her husband are coming to the wedding. They do a lot of traveling and have been to Mexico before, so I think that made her feel a lot better. YAY!! So, now I just need to push my mom and dad to start working on their passports! Oh joy!
Anyways...I don't know what all I'm going to get my bridesmaids yet. So far I have only ordered beach towels that have their names monogrammed on them. They have a little pocket on the side to put sunglasses, chapstick, etc. in and they fold into a bag that can easily be carried. I found them on Etsy and they are super cute! I would really like to buy their BM dresses for them, but first I need to find them! haha
Jess welcome back!! I'm happy to hear everything was perfect!! I can't wait to see your pictures!
I can't believe I leave in 5 days!!!
It was perfect and your day will be to. I am so excite for you!!

My biggest hurdle so far has been w/my bridal salon. Upon ordering my dress, they were so fantastic....great customer service, friendly, answered questions, etc. Last night, I FINALLY got my dress (I leave in 15 days). The salon promised the dress two weeks ago. IT IS THE WRONG COLOR. It is white and I mean white. I ordered ivory. The second the seamstress pulled it out of the bag, I said it's the wrong color. They tried to tell me that I ordered white. Um, no. All along, I wanted ivory. My shoes are ivory, my veil is ivory, etc. They are contacting Maggie Sottero today to see if they can ship out a new dress today. Cross your fingers! If this is the worst thing that happens, I can deal with a white dress.
Also, my mom's dress still hasn't come in from them and they keep saying it will be here in time. They also promised her dress 2 weeks ago. How long does it take? UGH!
Ok, enough venting. Things could be much worse....I keep trying to keep things into perspective.
I am so sorry to hear about your dress!!!! don't worry I know it does not seem like it now but everything will work out perfectly. Everything just has a way of falling into place.

Natalie your wedding looked so beautiful; I actually got a little teary eyed. We are also using Funever as our photography and videographer due to budget reasons, I had requested Caesar and I am glad to hear he was good to work with and I canâ€™t wait to see the pics! What time was your ceremony? We are scheduled to have ours at 6pm on June 19 2011 but now I am wondering if the time should be moved back to 5pm or 530pm so we can have better sunlight for pictures.
Also we are doing the symbolic ceremony, but we are not telling our friends that we are getting married before we go to Mexico. Does anyone know if the minister makes it a point to say itâ€™s a symbolic ceremony or do you think they would be able to keep it quiet? We really want June 19 to be celebrated our wedding date instead of the day that we are going to sign the papers.
As for the explosion over the weekend it breaks my heart that this happened, I canâ€™t imagine what those families are going through right now, my thoughts and prayers go out to them. I too was worried that our guest, we have 32 so far, would be concerned that this was an act of terror so I emailed everyone as soon as I heard about the story yesterday morning to let them know what was going on and that it was unpredictable and could have happened anywhere. So far everyone is still on board for Mexico
YAY!!! please so share once you do it

Jess-Im so jealous everyone can see your pics, for some reason I cant see anything!!
I think Im going to have a smaller wedding then anticpated, we started out with 4 BMs and 4 GM and now 2 of my BMs cant go, yet all his GM are on board! Im not sure what I can do now that the party is thrown off. Any suggestions? I was thinking of just having the girls walk and all the GM already at the altar.
Question for already married brides on the beach. It seems like everyone is going with the Gazebo, has anyone married on the beach? I would love to see pics of the way you decorated or how they set up
I cant wait to see all the newly wed brides reviews and pics to get inspired!! YAY!!
