Wow...I've missed so much in only a few days! haha
Waybuloo...I wouldn't stress too much. You are supposed to get married at the hotel you are staying at but I'm staying at Tulum and getting married at the Akumal hammock location because we couldn't book an all-inclusive pkg with the Akumal hotel and it wasn't even included in the hotel brochure at the travel agency. They understood that it was out of my control and approved the change, so it will work out. :-)
Baileybride2b - I was thinking about doing a sand ceremony. I think the concept is a really nice idea but I'm clueless with this stuff. LIke, where can I buy the sand and the vase or picture frame? haha I didn't see any at Michaels so not sure where else to look. I consider my dress to be formal and beachy. haha I actually bought a dress and lost my deposit after seeing my current dress. It was exactly what I was looking for but couldn't find anywhere. I ended up buying the sample and it fit perfectly. It was meant to be! hehe I find Eugenia is excellent to work with and usually very quick to get back to me. I have been the one not getting back to her the last few weeks, so I can't answer how she has been recently. Normally, she responds within 2 days.
Julie2011 - I'm bringing down fabric after seeing Trish's wedding pics a long time ago. haha The splash of color looks amazing. I'm going to get 10-12 yards in both of my wedding colors. Trish, I think you said the fabric was satin,right? Has anyone else used a different fabric? I've been asking for a video sample for months and have even sent videos that I like to give them an idea of the quality that I would hope to have. I received an email from them last week and they said they are hoping to have one to me within the next few weeks. I will send it to you as soon as I get anything (hopefully i get it!)
Melmed - I emailed my WC about centerpieces, so I'll see what she says. I don't want to take too much down with me. I have 6 bridesmaids so I guess I could just put a bouquet on each table. haha
As for ceremony songs, I was told that I needed about 30 min of songs while guests are being seated and 1 song each for the bridal party, me, signing the papers, and once we are married. I'm not impressed that my song for after the ceremony is now featured in the new Beverly Hills Chihuahua movie! LMAO Seriously.....i picked it first! haha (Michael Franti - Say Hey I Love You...so fun and upbeat! We love to dance and be silly!)
I guess I will just try my luck in Playa del Carmen and recruit some people to come with me to get the maracas. I need 63! haha
I will be packing and getting ready to go exactly 2 months from today!! OMG....crazy!!
