    LOL. TRUST me I wish I could!!! I have all the pictures from friends posted on my myspace right now. Not sure if you have one of those but if you do, send me a friend request - it's MySpace.com - www.myspace.com/56369849 and you can see the wedding ones from there. I'll be checking it this evening. If not I'll try to get them posted here soon! :o)

      FYI - we used our IPOD at our reception. The DJ had no problems playing from it.

That being said, we still brought our dock - but we didn't even use it.

      So CD's it was - one for the ceremony and a couple more for the disco.

        Awww....that's just mean. I don't have MySpace so I can't see them. Any chance you have a Facebook page? My work is in the states and I'm thinking Facebook is bigger in Canada because no one down there is on it.

                  Allison you are GORGEOUS in your pictures!!! I love your dress - it suits your body to a T. Like it was custom made for you!

                  Did you get your hair and make-up done by the Bahia?

                  Also, I could be mistaken but I thought you were doing just the symbolic ceremony and the legal part at home. If that's the case, what are you signing in the gazebo?

                    Awww...thanks! You don't even want to know how lucky I got on the dress.

                    Yes, we did the religious ceremony, but they still have you sign a certificate with two witnesses, it's just not the legal paperwork.

                    LOL. And the hair was the only hiccup in the day. Yes, I got my hair done there in the Akumal Spa (the Tulum side doesn't have a salon). It was awful. I mean AWFUL. I brought a picture similar to the final product in the pictures with 6 different angles. When I walked out I looked like she had smeared candle wax all over my head! LITERALLY. Luckily I had it done at 11 so I went home and washed it and one of my friends came to the rescue. She was amazing and did it in like 15 minutes! The lady in the spa couldn't speak english so there was no way of communicating with her. I definitely would recommend a practice round if you have them do it. I did see a girl the day before having hers done and it was a different stylist. She wore hers in curls half up and it looked really good, however I did see her at the end of the night and it looked like the curls were gone. It was SUPER windy and I'm soooo glad my hair was up and out of my face. And my sister did my makeup - so I got lucky there...

                      Yikes, that's not good about the hair. One of my friends is a hair dresser so hopefully she comes and can do our hair.

                      Also, it looked like you did the private poolside reception - what menu did you select? Also, did you have 50 guests? It says 50 is the minimum but we won't have that many so just wondering if they charged you for all 50 if you had less.

                      Okay....go write a review now so I can stop asking so many questions..lol.
