    Hey Jennifer.. Thanks! My bouquet was fake... I bought my bouquet, my bridesmaid bouquet and Pierre's bout at Hibiscusflorals.com I love them... The mayan ceremony was really pretty the Shaman was there with two other person and they gave us a blessing with the 4 elements. At one point we had to drop what was bless (that they put in a little basket) into the ocean... The ceremony was right after the legal one... It was just beside the gazebo. It started after my guests were all seated... We didn't get any break but it was quite fast... It was about 25 minutes. I didn't think my guests would have enjoy it but everybody was really impress with it... If you want more info, let me know :)

          Congrats Royfa!!!!I am curious about the mayan ceremony....how much extra is it on top of the legal?....i was thinking about doing the sand ceremony, but if the judge wont allow it, then the mayan ceremony sounds pretty cool...how long were the two ceremony's combined?

          The judge allowed the sand ceremony for my wedding. I wonder why they stopped? Of course I had to put the sand ceremony AFTER the legal wedding... but that didn't bug me.

            Hey Ladies,

            I can't wait to hear all about the weddings that just took place!

            I leave on Wednesday so things are getting down to the wire!!

            (ok Morgan, calm down with the exclamation points :) )

            My question right now is about the Spa. I've heard different things:
            I've heard that you cant book until you get to the resort, then I heard that you should book before you arrive.

            I've heard they don't use curling irons but rather a flat iron to curl your hair (this doesn't make sense to me) and I also heard that they burned some girls ends.

            Then I heard that they were great and there were not problems.

            Can anyone help me with this??

            Thanks so much.

              Oh, and update, I only hear from Jazmin when my TA harasses her, haha. But we are doing dinner and then a DJ and open bar until 11.

              My bouquet will be orange roses, my girls will have orange and white flowers.

              We're trying to move dinner earlier because my videographer will only be there for 5 hours and I want to make sure there is stuff for him to film besides us killing time between photos and the reception. :)

              You ladies have been so helpful. Thanks again

                I'd love more information about this, it sounds so unique! Would I just have to ask Jazmin about it when I get there or did you suggest it in advance?

                Was there an extra cost?

                Thanks so much.
