If it is okay, I may just look from far away. I love weddings!

      Right now the planning is kind of at a stand still. I am waiting for my WC to contact me again and still have flowers, OOT bags, gifts, music etc to purchase and plan. I know it will all work out. We do not have nearly the planning that you and all the other new brides have to do. I wish I did, but I am 20 years too late on that one. I am just going to buy all my centerpieces in Cancun from the resort. I do not feel like dealing with all that. Lucky for me, I bought my airline tickets far enough in advance that I still get the two bags per person and we have 6 traveling together. I think everything that I need to buy will still work out that way. Still a pain trying to figure out how it will all be packed, but thats okay.....

      We get therer on the 22nd and stay until the 30th. Our ceremony is on the 26th - I would love for you guys to come if interested. After all, You can see what you can do in 20 years!
      Nicole,
      We're having a cocktail party the night before (we're calling it rehearsal, even though its not). It will be at 8pm on the 22nd (Happy Early Anniversary and Birthday, in case I forget later, I have a feeling with this wedding I might not remember my own name soon) on the Tucan Terrace, next to the Tucan Gazebo (Nizuc side). Our ceremony is the next day at 4pm at the Tucan Gazebo (I'm hoping having the cocktail party there will help people not get lost the next day). I would love to have you and your husband stop by. I think we are doing Xel-Ha all day on the 26th, but if not, I'd love to hide in the bushes and watch your ceremony.

      As far as planning, I am also at a stand still. We still dont have a final head count and are having some major issues with guests, so I'm not really motivated to do anything until that's all resolved. Plus there's not much left to do, I'm not entirely sold on carrying stuff in the box either, we'll just to keep looking for options.

          Dez, do you know how you are wearing your hair yet? I dont know if it is going to be extremely windy in January. Im up in the air about it. I recently cut my hair short about chin length and was hoping to keep it down (now im growing it) but i dont want it to blow all over my face and ruin the hair style.

            Hey there! Let's keep our chin up ~ it all has to work out, right? Pookie - I noticed you and I both visited the "alternative flower" thread. I went ahead and bought the flowers. They look gorgeous. Are you going to get them? I am still doing real flowers at the resort, but unfortunately those are adding up fast! So for $249 (including shipping) I ordered my bouquet, MOH, bridesmaid, grooms, 2 groomsmen, mother corsage, hair flowers (I think 7 total) and 5 cake flowers. I read all the reviews she has on Ebay and they were all good. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they are all they are supposed to be. We are running out of time!

            Keep posting girls! Dez, anything new from the resort? Anyone else?

              I know they can do a beach set up. Not sure on the details other than it's an additional $10 per person. Also, Moon Palace's beach can be seaweedy....

              Actually, in my avatar pic, my hair is all back and curled. I have naturally curly, stubborn hair so I'm going to have it put up. I think I want it up the way it is in the pic (FSIL's wedding). We took pics of the front and back that day so I'll have something to give them to work off of.

                    You are lucky in the sense that you do have time. You also have more time to be picky and get exactly what you want :o) Your hair looks pretty in your avator, by the way. Up is probably a great option....remember very humid! I need to start hair style shopping myself. The only thing I know is that I want flowers in it.

                    Do they (MP) really charge $10 extra per person for the ceremony on the beach? That is not fair! Yes....seaweed is a problem, but mostly right next to the water. Keep in mind sand getting in the food and drink :o)

                      My travel agent is really confusing me. How come you guys are able to request your cocktail hour and reception plans but my travel agent says i have to wait until i get assigned a WC a month before the wedding?? Should I be more pushy bc i need answers NOW haha. Who do I talk to to set my cocktail hour up??
