FI and I are still going back and forth about which package we are going to go with. I'm kind of leaning towards the Mint Breeze package, because we really don't need to spend a great deal of money on a reception down in Mexico when there are only in the ballpark of 20 people going, and we're having a big AHR when we get home.

That being said, I didn't want to go with the Blueberry Dream package, because I still want to be able to have a private dinner with my guests, so I don't feel like we're being put on display like animals in a zoo in one of the a la cartes (I have really bad social anxiety, so these are the types of things that I worry about).

Another thing that I had looked into doing, but I think we're going to forego is doing the free coconut wedding, and then just renting a catamaran and doing a dinner on there with all of our guests, rather than being in a banquet hall or on th beach. This looked like a great idea on paper, but when we looked in to it, it was going to cost us in the range of 6,000 just to do a decent dinner for us and our guests and to be out for a fair amount of time...just not realistic for us when we're fresh out of school and still paying off debts.

Other than the ceremony itself I've been woking quite a bit on some possible excursion ideas in leui of a welcome dinner the first night our guests arrive. We're a bit more of an unconventional couple, so this is something that I think will be a bit more appropriate for our circumstances.

I've got quite a bit more notes here, but I don't want to bore you. I'd be happy to give you some idea though, and help in any way I can!

Hi everyone!

We've just put a date on hold for the Barcelo Maya Palace for our wedding!

I have a quick question. I just got an email saying that we have to be in Mexico for 3 days (not including arrival date, Sunday and wedding date) prior to getting married for a non-legal ceremony. My concern is we were planning to arrive on Sat April 10, and get married on Wed. April 14. Gabriela said it was ok, does anyone know if this will be a problem?

Thanks so much!! Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
