Oh good! I am wondering what our luggage limit is for our airline. we booked online contintental website but are flying with united airlines. I'm hoping I can fit all my stuff in my suitcase and my fiances, then little stuff in my carry on. Luckily, my parents are taking my wedding dress with them when they go a week earlier.

I would like to bring a photographer, but my FI is still on the fence, so we will probably bring one cheesy.gif, but as is said above we would have them as a "guest" to our wedding.

My finace's cousin is a photographer and I wouldnt mind bringing her to take our pictures. Thats a good idea with the duffle bags.  Thanks again for all the information you are the best Bride Buddycheesy.gif.

For those brides who have gotten married here, did you have them steam your dress before hand? I emailed the WC to see if they can do it and she said that they can take it somewhere to have it done, I am just wondering if anyone else did this, I will have it done before we leave but i am just wondering in case i need it done again if anyone had it done

Yay Maria got back to me!! I asked to have the ceremony at the Akumal Location and she said I can have it at 3pm but I asked to see if we can have it later. Thanks Crystalz, My FI cousin will be staying at the hotel with us. So I guess I will have to get everything in writing.

Can anyone give some advice on what the heck I am supposed to do with the Mexican marriage certificate in Canada? And FYI- they put the wrong name on the envelope AND on the marriage certificate- says my husband is married to a Alyson Jane Croft (which is NOT my name). For this reason ALONE I wouldn't recommend GBP- serious ERROR!!!!

Oh that's sad!  That IS a serious error!  How sucky!  I'm sorry!!

 

As for the dress steaming I didn't bother.  The humidity pretty much took all of mine out, but then again it was just my "under" layer as the top was lace so it didn't wrinkle anyways.

 

My ceremomy was at 3pm and it actually worked out quite well.  My guests were able to go back to their rooms and freshin up for the 5pm cocktail hour and we had plenty of time for photographs which was really important to me (I'm sure you can guess why!!)

I got the Akumal Location yay!!! I think I might have them take my pictures and have our guests take some pictures as well. What kind of excursions did you guys do when you were at the resort? Trisha what kind of favors do you give?

When we stayed at the resort we went to Tulum for our Trash the Dress and fell in love.  If we go back, we're going there to hang out of the day.  AMAZING.

 

The only real excursion Shawn and I did was the Xel-ha.  We swam with the dolphins.  It was so awesome and since only Shawn and I went, it was great to have a little time away, just us. 

 

The favors I gave were my OOT bags.  Guests got the bag, a custom mug (which EVERYONE used), miscellaneous crap, and the essentials.  I also did photo frame place cards.

Uh oh!!! What is your name? I'm just wondering so I can see what they were going off of to get a mistake like that. My last name everyone ALWAYS spells wrong and my fiances last name is a little different too :s
