      I am so EXCITED! I leave tomorrow to Edmonton and then we fly out from there on Sunday. I can’t believe it’s finally happening. Today is my fiancĀ©’s birthday, I got him a Nintendo DS and some games for the plane ride lol. He was so excited (like a little kid ha-ha). I have one or two things left to pack, but otherwise I am ready to go!

              Hi girls, I've been thinking and re-thinking on whether or not I should have a poolside reception after dinner. And Whether or not I should hire DJ, does it really worth it? If I decided to do it, is there enough room for dancing? I would like to do our first dance at the poolside if possible, and it's going to be more slow dancing ( there are few ballroom dancer in our group). And would it still be really hot for that time of the evening?

                  Met Wendy last night at the Daquiri bar after her wedding! Looked amazing!! Sounds like everything went off without a hitch and they were having a great time! Its SUPER hot here right now and Im completely rethinking not using a 2nd dress for after the wedding. It was so sweltering in the disco last night... I might lose 20 lbs this week just from sweating!!!

                  We are all having a great time and everyone is getting along really well. We are sooooo very happy with this resort and our guests LOVE it!

                  Congratulations Erica... hope to see you down here!! I get married in a couple days now!!!

                    well i'm back a mrs!!! totally awesome i ran into cheryl a few times.

                    the wedding was beautiful...i can't wait to see the pictures nora took. hopefully better than the ones from the resort photog. i am not very photogenic and he was shooting up so we both had double chins going on. but we still managed to pick out 10 included in the package and we got 2 extra ones. my bouquet turned out nice. we had dinner at the mediterreano and it was delicious. the table set up was a little weird, and the soup & salad were not what we ordered but we made due. everyone raved about the entree (choice of lemon chicken, or grilled shrimp). afterwards we headed over to the daiquiri bar (akumal premier lobby) as it was right across from the restaurant. orignially we planned on going to the tulum lobby bar but it was too hot to travel across the resort. they had a live band and we danced, threw the bouquet and did the garter toss while there. most of us ended up changing because it was sooo hot and a half of us went to the hacienda/disco later.

                    i'm glad we didn't plan a private reception because we saw a few on mon & tues at the music bar at coba...and no one was dancing. one night it rained really bad and the coba lobby was really packed, so we were telling people to meet to us there. so we moved over to bar where the shows are. well in between is the music bar and a bunch of us and our guests (at different times) went to the wrong spot. needless to say the bride having the private party was not happy. she claimed there was a sign on the door, but it was open. anyways...point being if you don't want people around or accidently coming by i wouldn't plan for that spot. the bride looked more stressed and pissed off than having fun at her own reception. i felt bad for her.

                    i have no major complaints about the trip, or experience but the last couple days the mosquitos were really bad...bring bug spray & after bite. i'm dying right now i must have about 50 bites on me. a few of our guests had some stomach issues and complained about the resort being too big...(we had 42 guests in total and half were at the coba, half at tulum).

                    i feel like i need a vacation now to relax. it was a blast having everyone there but busy trying to find people and spend time with everyone.

                    i'll try to get around to writing a better review soon...with pics. can't wait to see them!
