LOL I had platform flips because i was nervous to walk in anything else (you couldn't even see them lol) I got mine here:
....just when i thought things were starting to fall into place, people start to get worried about the safety in Mexico. SHEESH.
It's like there is an invisible list of "things that will eventually come up when planning your DW" .... and i thought i wouldn't have to deal with this because those that booked have been getting so excited to go.
these 3 guys (yup, guys) already put their deposits down, with 2nd deposit due mid-feb, they'd better decide asap. i have a bunch of gals paid in full, booked flights and all with less worries than they do. It's not about the money because i know they have it. without these 2 rooms, we won't have enough for the group rate, or we'll have to split a couple of the double rooms into singles to cover or find replacements! a BM's BF already can't make it
this all started when they asked a friend who's in the army to join them for the week because they needed an extra person to make a room double occupancy instead of single, he spoke about leave with his lieutenant and was advised against going - "allowed to, but highly advised to not go due to the sheer amount of violence going on in that country". (WTF, i'm pretty darn sure none of you ladies who were just there got married in a freaken war-zone).
Hearing all that and the media hype about recent violent activities makes them "uneasy", plus they aren't very experienced travelers.
Vancouver was portrayed as a "city full of gang violence" with shootings and stabbings at clubs. didn't stop them from going out to the bars and clubs at night.
I lost a bridesmaid FIVE DAYS before because of this. I would reassure them that this is very true for BORDER towns, but not so for riviera maya areas.

My motivation is mainly for pictures. Any suggestions?

Review is on the main page here for The Royal, and here are some teaser pics (I think i get my pro pics on sunday):
Thank you ma'am. The cake was delicious from what I got (they finished it all before i could get my "real piece" lol) It was Tres Leches. We cut our slice to feed each other and then yes, they cut the rest into slices for the guests. I had 30 people and I believe it would have been enough with the standard cake, but people were getting thirds lol (that should be an indication of how good it was).
