I am anxious to book and get the ball rolling. I have a few questions, I am looking for somewhat current prices for the wedding packages, pool side reception info., private function information, flowers prices etc. I clearly do not have enough posts to open the pdf documents (its very frusterating..I am working on getting enough though!). I was wondering if anyone had any of that information if they could email it to me at shyerone@hotmail.com I pretty much want to assess the costs, ensure I am making the right decision...the other closest resort in the running is the dreams tulum...however, quite expensive! eeek. Thanks for the help!.
I just emailed you...

Hi I'd like to re-introduce myself. I'm now Cheryl Scott!!!


We got home early this evening to a little bit of snow and a lot of cold wind. What a shock to go in a few hours from +35C to +5C! (95f to 41f). So far this evening we've started the laundry, did some light cleaning, watched a movie, started uploading photos...all on top of panicking because DH managed to lose his Dr Lic and Military ID somewhere between Edmonton and Cancun. Oy. Please keep your fingers crossed we find them... soon!


The wedding week.

Really surprising to both of us... EVERYONE GOT ALONG! REALLY WELL! Wahoo!! The whole time was insane trying to watch over, check on, visit with as many people as we could. It was like having a week long reception! We checked facebook a couple times after everyone left and there were friend requests flying everywhere!


The wedding itself.

It was incredible. Crazy. Busy. Overwhelming. Perfect. Everything ... well other than security making our wedding late because they stopped the Mayan couple doing the ceremony and our marimba band we hired and wouldn't let them in until our wedding coordinator Eugenia saved the day! It made everything run a little later than it was supposed to so we kind of got gypped a little there but all in all... it was amazing. It was an incredible ceremony. I'm waiting for the video of it because honestly I don't remember too much of it! It just seemed to go really fast and then really slow all at once! It was so hard to just focus on remembering everything.


A few memories that I do have....


The Mayans were throwing all these beans at/around/near and on us... one went down my dress. LOL. I whispered that it had to DH and we both started giggling away in the middle of the ceremony.


MOH snugging me into my corset dress! I didn't have a pole to hang onto like they did in the old days so I kept losing my footing!


DH crying his eyes out when we had our "First Look" photos done. Made me cry seeing how happy and in love he is with me


Throwing our basketful of beans/seeds and flowers out into the ocean & our own personal private moment on the rocks before we did


Our first dance and him whispering all the while to me ... slow slow quick quick...



I'll have a bunch of pics to share tomorrow and I'll do a full resort review of both our wedding/reception as well as where we went for our honeymoon!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
