We actually went to the dollar store purchased 8 picture frames for our table and printed pictures of ourselves at each age. ex. the top said "Here we are at age" and then the table number 3 and then we had a picture of me and him at age 3...I wish I had a picture of it but I dont for now...I'll try to ask around for one :)  I havent heard of the resort providing it but I'm sure they may have something but I'm also sure you'll probably have to pay for it too...

I got married on Oct 10, 2010 at 530pm. We actually met an hour before the ceremony to take some pictures with the day light. Once the ceremony was over.. the sun was gone very quickly. You don't see the sunset much cause you are in Mexico. I highly recommend you getting married around 3-4pm-ish if you are planning to take some pictures with daylight. Also because it's October.. there are tons of mosquitoes at night...we had a very breeze night so mosquitoes eventually went away but it was very painful for first hour into the reception on the beach. Depends on how long you want to take the pictures (before or after) will determine when you need to have the ceremony. I thought 530pm was little too late... though this was perfect for us since we took pictures before the wedding and we had less bystanders watching our wedding.

 

Here are some pictures from my wedding. By the time we were done with family/friends pictures... the sun was GONE! You can see that there was a great sunlight during our ceremony and by the time we were done with the pictures (my sister and I).. the sun was gone!

Great pictures! And good tips :)

We're having our ceremony at 4:30pm on Oct 22nd, and planning on taking pics before and after. 

I'm worried about the mosquitos as well, they were pretty bad when we were visiting a couple weeks ago (at least at NOW Jade, where we stayed). Did you have issues every night? Day too?  In your opinion do you think Zavas plaza would be more protected? Maybe we should burn citronella!

We stayed at the resort in April, and I can't remember seeing one mosquito. But it was quite windy while we were there, so perhaps that's why. But we are travelled a fair bit in the area, and I can't really say I have ever had a problem....and mosquitos Love me! LOL

We're getting married at Azul Beach on July 30 and decided to have the ceremony at 11 a.m.  Any perspectives on that choice?  Our thinking was that we can get the ceremony done early, while the light is good and mosquitos asleep, and then have a wedding luncheon and celebrate for the rest of the day.  We're only going down for five days, and I don't want to spend an entire day getting ready, full of nerves.  I'd rather get the ceremony and primping over with in the morning, and spend the day having fun with the group.  We may even do a couples massage and have some down time just for us in the afternoon, before heading out to the pool (in my white swimsuit, of course!).

 

But now I'm worried that the beach will be crowded with onlookers in the late morning.  Any thoughts on a morning versus an afternoon ceremony?

I am trying to figure out the same thing.  I guess it really depends on what we want?  I am thinking of doing it at around 4:00pm in October, as sunset is around 6pm...I wanted the cocktail reception to be at sunset...and into a private dinner, but its all what you want right?  That sounds like a really relaxing day to do it the way you described above!!!  I would suggest checking to see how hot it gets at that time during July?  that might play a part in what time works best for you!

Either way, good luck, and I am sure it will be great!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
