      yea!! Thanks for the restaurant info!

      **** Heads up!****
      Although this is not so much MP specific, a friend of mine just returned from Cancun and her biggest suggestion is to bring bio-degradable sun block. They charge a fortune in the tourist zone ($25/bottle) and will not permit you to snorkle, or swim with the dolphins, etc... if you use standard sun protection.

        Hello

        Thank you so much for your response. I am making my own aisle runner as I would like to remove the red one currently there.

        Do you happen to know how long the aisle is - specifically the Chapel , Tucan Gazebos?

        As well, does anyone know how long the aisle can be if you are doing a terrace ceremony?

        Thanks again - Much Appreciated =)

          Terrific - thanks for posting.

          I do believe that you can have your WC send you the list of the restaurants in a pretty format so that you may distribute to your guests.

          Thanks =)

          Happy Planning

            Much love and appreciation!
            We are also requesting the Grand Side for us and our guests. It is specifically written in our booking with our TA.

            I have been told it is the best - new and spacious. Quite private!

            I would suggest that you check our trip advisor - a great site that details many resorts. They are reviews & pics posted of the Moon and the Grand specifically.

            All the Best

              Going to decorate with ribbons and flowers - provided by the hotel.

              There are some great pics on trip advisor where you can see what brides have done in the past.

              As for the pews - I am hoping flowers on the ends or fabric. We are using our own aisle runner and possibly purchasing the flowers to be strewn on the ground. As well I have mini star fish that I will also use to border the aisle.

              What are you thinking? Specifically the pews?

              Are you have a Catholic Wedding? Are you booked in the Chapel?

                  I don't think I have full authority either if it helps.
                  Are you openning several attachments that others have posted? Anytime you open one, it charges something like 50 points...that includes everytime you have to open the same attachment. I'm not sure if you get charged for openning website links though.
                  All I've done is scan through a few sundry threads everytime I'm on, and I make sure that I've logged on. I've also started a handful of new threads. You also get some decent points if you're the one posting an attachment.
                  Other than that, I'm not sure what to tell you. Sorry!

                    Does anyone know if freeze dried rose petals can get confiscated by customs in Mexico? I was thinking of buying some, but I was afraid they would be taken away from me when I entered the country.

                      After I ordered ours, I started having the same feeling... After a little research, I was able to find that a good rule of thumb is to keep them company sealed in their original packaging. I wonder if it would be to suspicious if you hide them like in the inner-interior of your luggage?
                      Also, theres a chance your luggage won't even been inspected.
                      I read on one of the threads that if you place a sweet note inside of your checked luggage stating that you're en route to your wedding and pleading that they be kind to the contents, they will actually put things back nicely in the event its searched.
