    The WC told me when we met with her that the photographer would be there and I would recieve my 10 free pictures so I think that if I would have asked that they not come she would have let them know, but I am not positive on that

    Thanks, that is what we were trying to do was pick ones that you would not have been able to get

    I did not pay extra, I gave her this picture and they turned out perfect...


     



    Cheryl, your bouquet is beautiful!! Did you have to pay extra or is that the standard size?

      This is kinda a random question.... but I have been struggling trying to find/come up with outfit ideas for our dads so they look nice and still comfortable, and I LOVE what your dad is wearing. Any idea where he got his shirts and pants???

       

      AND you look beautiful and your photos made me very happy.... a little over two months until my wedding and I can't wait! Thanks for sharing!

        I believe that my mom got his shirt at target, I will double check with her and find out the brand and make sure that is where she got it from, and then he just is wearing dockers which you can get at carsons, kohls or i believe macys.

         

        Thank you, your wedding will be here before you know it and it will be amazing I am sure of it

              Ok, we were just given a new option by Paloma so its either I say with the 5pm at Akumal Beach, my earlier option for Akumal Beach is 1pm or I can do 4pm at the Tulum Gazebo. Eeek! Decisions decisions....any input as my FI left for work at I won't be able to chat with him till tomorrow night.

              My options given to me by my WC are:

              a. Change the ceremony to 1pm

              b. Change the dinner time to 9:30pm

               

              I feel that a 9:30 dinner is way too late, plus then there is no time for dancing. On the other hand my FI does not like the idea of a 1pm ceremony due to the heat, and the beach being busy.

              Any thoughts or solutions?

                then yes we did see it! actually we were comenting on how brave you were to get out on the rocks near the water for your photos. We were always down at the little private beach to the left of the wedding site. love the rum coconuts at the beach bar there!!!

                 

                ps your wedding was beautiful!

                  Ha!  Yeah, sorry about that Cheryl!  I hope your feet didn't hurt too bad from having to go out on the rocks! 

                  Totally worth it though

                  As for the beach or the gazebo option.  Hm. Tough decision.  The only thing i don't like about the gazebo is that the guests can't see the water from the seats.  It's very pretty though, and such a lush area for photos afterwards!

                    Has anyone ever had french polish done by the spa?  Jazmin sent me the spa brochure but I don't see anywhere about getting french polish (usually it is listed separate because most places charge an extra $10 or so for it..)  So does anyone know if they can even do it?
