    Hi Koolatta,

    Oh what a shame we will be there from 27th Nov for 2 weeks so will just miss you. Can you believe how quickly it is coming around?! I can't wait to read about everyone's experiences once we get back.

      Hi ladies!

      So my wedding is fast approaching and I don't do much posting but I do a lot of reading and wanted to say thanks for all the info and advice!!

      Starting to get very excited- Morgan your stuff/pictures have been a blessing! thanks very much.

      We are having a legal ceremony followed by a private reception at the PCB. We didn't have a choice b/c it looks like we'll have between 80-90 people which I can't even believe. The amount of friends/family joining us is overwhelming and I don't really think it will hit me until I'm there.

      Quick question to anyone who had a legal ceremony- how much can you add to it to make it a little more personal? We were told we can write our own vows. But what about having an opening/closing read before/after the legal stuff??

      79 days until I'm a Mrs! 61 crazy folks booked!

        I'm not sure about adding to the legal ceremony, but I am pretty sure you can not change the script at all. I think it has to be those exact words

        I'm sure it's covered somewhere on the forum. Search legal ceremony mexico or something like that.

          I finally heard back from Elena about the prices for bouquets and boutonnieres in case any of you brides are interested. She said bouquets start at $30 and bouts start at $5.

            Not too bad for flower prices. Are your parents and siblings wearing flowers? I'm still trying to decide where to stop when it comes to flowers. Of course the wedding party will have them but I think I want our parents and my siblings to have them too! What is everyone doing?


            * GOOD NEWS: I am having my dress made as we speak!!! I'm so excited!! Since I live in China, I brought pictures to a wedding dress shop and they are making it for me. It's a Bonny dress, it was $350 in the U.S. and I'm only paying $70 here in China! I hope it turns out okay! I'll keep you posted!

              I did flowers for just our moms. I didn't think our dads would want to wear them. It would be different if they had suits on. I think his mom liked her flower, but I know my mom loved hers. she was wearing it with her tamk top at breakfast the next day :)

              at traditional weddings, I don't think siblings get flowers.

              I did give everyone a hair flower in their OOT bag & a few guests wore it to the wedding.

                Great point! I figured the mothers would eat it up but the fathers maybe not so much!

                  Hey Cat Brides!!!

                  Let's get some chatter going! I just got the 2010 wedding package list. What perks is everyone getting? We are doing the Renewal of Vows ceremony ($399) but since we will have more than 10 rooms booked, we get it FREE!!!

                  I wish I could post it but I don't have enough posts yet!

                    I just got the prices as well. We are doing the Vows ceremony too, how did you find out that with 10 booked rooms its free? We have about 30 people attending so now I'm thinking that our package will be free.

                    Does anyone know if the sand is hard where the ceremony takes place? I'm trying to figure out shoes for the Bridesmaids and don't know if I should have them get heels or not.

                      The package wasn't free with 10 rooms when I booked. That is nice! Still at $399 it's a bargain.

                      I can't remember how hard the sand was, but I wore flat sandals & my mom wore wedges. It looks like mike's aunt is wearing heels in our group picture. you can see it by clicking the wedding album link in my siggy. The sand does look pretty compact, but it's hard to judge.
