    I'm just wondering when everyone elses planning stopped? I've been in contact with Karla for the past couple weeks (daily) sorting out the timeline for the wedding day. Now that we're done that bit it seems as though the contact has been deminished. I asked about choosing the cake, decor, flowers etc for the day and she said we don't choose any of those things until we arrive. Have any of you girls been able to plan these things in advance?

      Hey, I pretty much got the same response from Karla. We planned the time line, whether there would be a dj, photographer, and location (Gazebo), reception dinner, and private cocktail.

      As far as the flowers I chose the kind of flowers I would like and told her I would bring a pic of a bouquet that I like. We haven't talked about cake and as far as decor I asked for some balloons (for a balloon release at the end of our ceremony), so she got a quote for that. And I asked about getting rose petals for the aisle (which she mentioned is included in our package). Thats about it, she said we can figure out all the details when we get there, I'm not really too worried about it.

      Although if you would like a bigger or more formal cake I might mention something, b/c the pics of the cake options, show that they are fairly small and simple.

      Hope this helps and happy planning :-)

        The only things I have done was set the timeline for the day, choose a site and restaurant, choose a cake, set up a poolside reception after dinner. Everything else (flowers, decor, etc...) I will probably deal with when I get there.

          Thanks ladies. I guess I can rest knowing that we're all in the same boat. I'm sure it will all work out.

          A balloon release was something I was thinking of requesting too. Do you mind if I ask how much she quoted you for that? I had no idea about the rose petals either. I'm not sure if I want them but it would be to ponder the idea.

              Sure for 15 white and 15 dark purple balloons, Karla quote me $60usd. Which I think is a pretty good price :-)

              Congrats Jenn, have fun with this thread, there are some awesome ideas!

                Oh that isn't bad at all. I want to do that now. I'll get onto Karla for that one.

                Congratulations Jenn!! I know this thread can be a bit daunting so if you can't find it ask away. I'm sure one of us will be able to direct you to what you're looking for. :-)

                  Awesome, another Tulum bride. I was thinking there were way too many Coba girls on here anyway :P Epic ... that's funny, i think that was the same word i used when i first found this thread. Kick back with a glass of good red wine (or many) and have fun reading :)
