i'm not really worried about plans, karla is the one who sent me an email on friday asking me to give her all the details on which restaurant, how many guests etc. i was looking forward to just deciding when we get there, but she said they need to know this far in advance.

FI was really hoping to have it at gran toruga but i guess we'll just eat there another day on the trip.
They move pretty quickly on the booking of things because if you waited there could be another bride scooping up that time and restaurant. Flowers you can wait until you get there. I am sure they have to figure if they have to close it to the public if you have a really large group. It isn't that big of a restaurant, again it really is classy and the salad bar certianly could feed people quite easliy. please have a few for me lolfriday.gif
The Gran Tortoga is nice and the food is great... A little older and overused, not as classy... you have gotten the better one...

I've been MIA ladies... but I'm back... only 3 months til i'm in Mexico!!

 

I'm going to be starting to work on my wedding programs soon. we're having the civil ceremony... would anyone be willing to share the wording of their programs or send me a picture for some ideas/reference? I'm really lost regarding this. Have really no idea how the ceremony will go so that makes it hard.

 

I'm going to have a ton more questions so any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Civil so your not getting married before? (I had a symbolic ceremony, we married before Mexcio) I know that the person conducting the ceremony follows strict vows and you have to repeat those and exchange the rings with her vows. Then you are allowed to repeat your own vows (which is kinda silly because you have already said them kinda sorta in her words). Mark and I just found that the ring part was totally weird to say because you already have your rings on your fingers.
He started with his own vows and didn't say the ring part. I did and it was just weird.. My husband said his while we were at dinner, he made me stand took my hand and pulled my ring off and said "I hate when people tell me what to say", this is what I wanted to say! and he said his commitment with the ring. Only my husband!!!!

So, I'm a little confused now... Im staying at Tulum. So I though I'd be able to have my dinner at Gran Tortoga, but my options are Potofino, and Pescador... Maybe because I wanted a beach wedding, and they have my Ceremony at Akumal? Is this what normally happens? I thought you got to choose from the restuants that are the hotel you are staying at...huh02.gif

It might have something to do with the availability of the restaurants. Maybe the the Tulum ones are already booked that day or they think you're group size is better suited for these ones?
