    Thanks for the review, it was super helpful! Your ceremony pic looked gorg! We are using the same little vials for our placecards as well! :) <3 Martha Stewart.

      Hi Ladies,

      I have not posted much but I have read just about everything on this website.  I am working on my review and will post it tonight or tomorrow.  We loved the resort and I have lots of tips and pointers to give you as well as pics.

      More to come

        SparksFly-- Oh how exciting, good luck tomorrow!!! We arent going to the JP till we get back from Mexico! Our flight leaves Dallas as 11:10 AM that would be so funny if she was on the same flight as us! Well we will all have the same matching blue shirts so we should be easy to spot! I cant believe how close we are getting :)

         

        Queen-- Get review!!! Your pics looked amazing!

         

        Hedges-- Cant wait to see your review!

            Thank you, everyone! Deniden, I loved my bouquet, too! I ran across it on Google images, and I had no idea what kind of flowers they were. I sent the picture to Marvin, and he was like, 'Oh, yeah, those are blah blah blahs. I can recreate that."

             

            I used the vials as part of our guest book table. We put questions inside of them for people to answer on the back of postcards for our guestbook. I was OBSESSED with those vials when I saw them on Martha Stewart, but I couldn't think of a way to use them for the place cards while still indicating everyone's meal choice. We actually had regular place cards with two different punches to show the two meal options. See pic!

                  Hi, mae1564!

                   

                  The bottles are true vintage bottles from the late 1800s! :)  I sourced over 150 bottles from a very interesting bottle collector in Australia and brought all of them to Mexico with us.  Anyway, I worked pretty closely with Fernanda from Planner 1 Events (they are based in Cancun).  Since I brought all my decorations with me but needed someone to set up (i.e. put flowers in the bottles), Fernanda and I worked together on a deal where she provided flowers, set up, etc. and then bought all my decorations from me for future use in other weddings (so it was great because I didn't have to carry them back to the U.S.).  So if you're interested, she has all of my decorations now that you can rent (including the candelabras I designed myself and had laser cut in the U.S.; they are similar to the Jon Russel Ghost Candelabras, but I modified them so that they take votive holders with battery-operated candles instead of tapered candles, which would blow out easily on the beach...and I made the laser etching cleaner & more modern...Fernanda also has my frosted votive holders, which fit perfectly in the candelabras since they were made for them)!  She is great to work with, speaks very good english, and is REALLY on top of everything.  If you need the pricing and catalog of their decorations & services, I can send you that information (just don't know what she's pricing the decorations she got from me at).  Unfortunately, the bottle collector I bought those aqua bottles from only has a few left since I pretty much bought all of them from him!  Plus, I think it would be easier for you to rent from Fernanda rather than going through the painstaking process I went through of bubble wrapping each bottle, packing in boxes, dividing up among family members and making receipts and signs for each one, etc.  Trust me...it was a huge pain!!!

                   

                  Let me know if you have any other questions! :)
                   

                  Jenn

                      For those of you that have already had your weddings (congrats!) what entrees did you choose and do you have any photos of them?  I'm thinking of choosing the beef fillet w/ Dijon mustard and Provencal herbs and the chicken Casablanca stuffed with seafood.  We're definitely going to have the beef as an option, but I'm only 50% sure we should go with the chicken.  I kind of just feel like you need to have a chicken option...

                       

                      I have to make the decision asap since I'm working on the proof for my invites!

                      I just got back from a pre-wedding tasting at the Royal and the beef was awesome. Did not try the chicken, but did try the salmon and the jumbalaya shrimp - both were great, but we are going with the beef and the shrimp! I think as long as you have a beef option and a safe other option (menting nothing too crazy - ie chicken or shrimp would both be "safe" IMO, you'll be fine.
