    Well, I got a message from my sister today. Apparently she's surprised that we're still planning on going to Mexico with all the bodies that keep showing up all over the place. Any one else having guests with safety concerns?

    I'm not sure what it's like it Waterbury, CT... but when people used to say that to me I'd say something along the lines of "Wow, yeah, I'm really surprised you went shopping down in Milwaukee last weekend. I mean, have you seen all the bodies piling up?"
    Crime happens everywhere. And for how many millions of tourists travel to Mexico, very few are killed.

      I have a quick question for any Canadian brides who were legally married at or getting married at GBP. I'm still confused about the legal aspects. In the doc that Paloma sent it says:
      "We recommend to appostille the certificate of marriage on site with the legal authorities… the process lasts around 3 months…"
      I think she means "takes around 3 months", but does the judge do this?
      It sounds like some people were just able to bring home the marriage certificate and get it all legalized at the court house. What have other peoples experience been? What's the easiest way to do this?
      ok...sorry that wasn't really a quick question

        Heh, it's funny you should say that. Waterbury is one of the worst cities in Connecticut. I was told not to live here when I first moved to the state. I told them "I'm from Detroit. How bad does Connecticut get, really?"

        I should mention that to my sister, because in Michigan people shoot pizza boys for the $40 they have on them. Mexico can't be that bad in comparison. I've been there before and didn't feel unsafe, but I just want to make sure everyone has no reservations when they make their reservations.

Needless to say , on top of all this last minute running around Jazmin has me doing to get a long form birth certificate, then translated, then notarized then stamped by the embassy...I am really worried that i'm going to get down there...and things are going to fall apart, and suddenly not be booked/confirmed...Sorry about the little rant, but we are sooo close to the date and i'm getting upset by all this pandemonium
          I'm new on here and hoping that you still come on. I was wondering how your day went? Did you have everything straightened out? Did you have a beautiful wedding? If you had any issues what where they so I don't have the same issues. I'm getting married in the Tulum section, our wedding is on the beach, our dinner is at the Grand Torauga, and I rented the cocktail section for a reception with the DJ.

Also Jazmin said that they dont do a head table at the restaurant, and if you want one then it can only be 4 ppl?? My wedding party has 11people in it!? how am I going to set up seating arrangements...............
            Hi Jenny,
            I'm also having the same problem with seating at the Gran Tortuga. I was wondering what you did and how your tables were arranged? I'm currious at what she is going to do for me. We have 40 people and my wedding party has 8 people.

                I only had 3 people have safety concerns. I've explained to them to stay in a group and don't go out by yourself. They have to remember that you are in a different contry and they have different laws. And what maybe o.k. in one place is not somewhere else and will end you up on jail! However that would be the wedding to remember!!! LOL My MOH is bringing her 7 year old blue eyed curly blond hair son with us. She was a little worried that he might get snatched up. Other then that.... everyone is just excited to go!

                  Hi ladies, I've read all 120 pages and have to say there is some really great idea's. Thank you for taking the time to post even after your wedding is finished. It give the rest of us tips, ideas, and information for us to keep planning our special days!! I do have one question. Some of you have little tickers for your wedding dates. How the heck did you get them to work I've made 3 tickers with 3 different programs and I still can't get any of them to show up!

                    ooh you're getting married the day i get to the resort!
                    i'm getting married at Tulum in the Gazebo with dinner at Tequila and the outdoor poolside reception with DJ

                    yes the 120 pages is very helpful
                    it's too bad at about page 80 i started to check this thread daily and stopped taking notes. i'll have to go back to make sure i didn't miss anything important. lol

                    as for tickerness, are you picking the one that says PseudoHTML, UBBCode™ or BBCode?
                    then you just gotta paste the whole code thing in your signature
