    For the ceremony, does the WC break it down to the wedding party just before gametime? Does she come to the room where we're getting ready to give us the plan? When do all the details get disseminated to the wedding party??

      Oh, and how often are golf carts used to get around the resort? How else do people get from one end to the other?

      there are golf carts, little trams that fit 6-8 people (for example going between grand moon & nizuc) and then coach buses that will take you from one end to the other.

            i have requested the beach be sweeped before mine, but obviously they don't clear the entire beach, just the relevant area.

            that said, dino gomez just shot a wedding in the chapel here and i saw his photos–he did a great job of minimizing the problem with the flash and the glass but having seen it now in person i am sure it was a big challenge.

            the wedding i'm photographing tomorrow is in the tucan gazebo–will let you know how it turns out! :P
            Thanks Maura but I don't think that will be a problem in April. In November the sunset is known to be earlier (5PM) but in April it's not until (7PM). That's the time of year we usually go to Cancun and it's not dark at 5PM yet. Thanks for the insight though! It will be very helpful for those having their wedding around these months :)

            As far as the seaweed goes it's usually not THAT bad so I wouldn't worry about it. Don't forget Hurricane Ida just swept through Cancun over the weekend so this is not the 'normal' amount of seaweed. This is Post-hurricane conditions...
