    Lisa, thinking of you and wishing you all the best... I'm sure everything will be just perfect. Keep smiling:)

    FI has a about 8 friends going (they are all unmarried, no children and most are single)

    I have 1 friend booked (unmarried, coming with her boyfriend)...supposed to have another friend coming, but she hasn't booked and well, wedding is in 8 days. Most of my friends are married with (small) children, so I think that played the biggest factor among my core group because even after the age of 2, you have to pay for their airline seat. 

     

    I will admit, I sometimes send FI a little sad face in IM convos lol and tell him I'm jealous that most of his good friends are going and a lot of mine are not, but I know that I will love and always remember my wedding in Mexico and how much I love him. It does bring me comfort that we are having a home reception, however, so my good friends WILL be at that. You would always do something at home- it can be as simple as a small casual bbq at home, to an elaborate affair, but your friends will definitely celebrate your union with you there :-). I hope that helps.

      Thanks for the info Natalie regarding symbolic ceremony, I'm glad they make it official and have you sign right there in front of everyone. Sounds perfect.

      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 can’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 it’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 can’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


      Hi!  Thanks so much!

       

      My ceremony was at 5:00.  I thought it was a great time to do it.  We did rush a little bit during cocktail hour to get pictures but everything worked out great.  I didn't mind rushing the pics since i'm not big into posing for pics anyway.  Plus, since your in June...you'll have more than an hour more sun than I did, so i think a 6:00 ceremony is perfect in June :)  If you want a little more sun for first dance, etc...you can switch to 5.  I'll make sure to post my Funever pics when I get them.

       

      We also did symbolic and it seems very official because you sign a certificate at the end in front of everyone.

                    Hey ladies!

                     

                    I played hooky from work today. A little bit ago my doorbell rang and it was the postman delivering a package that I honestly forgot was supposed to come. Anyway, they were the pocket spas that I had ordered for my girls. I had seen them on the internet and they looked o.k. but in real life, I absolutely LOVE them! You can select the fabric that covers the eye cooling pouch and everything. The best part is that the spas range in prices. I chose the bridal spa packages which were only $7.99 each! Anyway, I figured that I would share the link with my Royal ladies. It's http://www.pocketspa.com/ Happy shopping!

                      Lisa and Jenny, I can't believe it's your time already! It seems like Di just got married and we had months left! The time really flew by! I hope you ladies manage to get everything done in the next couple of days so you can be relaxed when you leave.
