Thank you! That's the stance I took too, just flattered in the end. I did work my booty off... might as well have some sort of result from it :)

Amy I just watched the whole slideshow....and it made me cry too!! everything looked soooo beautiful! especially you!

Andrea you looked amazing too, can't wait for your pics!

 

I have Tiffany as a off site and I have not had any problems with her. I have called her a few times so we can clarify things but aside from taking a few days to get back to me she's been good. I am bringing all of my emails though, just in case. And the on site team sounds great so I am sure they can fix anything that needs fixin!!

Lolo, I can't believe you're all packed!!! I probably will do the same thing but then wonder what I will wear for the week, lol!

On the picture thing, yeah, it's borderline for me... he's a really awesome guy and proud of his work and SERIOUSLY hooking me up so I feel it fair almost. I mean seriously as in he is flying out for my wedding and now somehow I have gotten him and another of his photogs to come out and shoot my wedding week, love this guy!

Hello all you lovely ladies! I have spent almost the entire day reading through this thread...I'm home sick from work today wink.gif I'm getting married on January 31st 2011 at Azul Beach. Tiffany (uh oh) sent me all of the paperwork/dinner/ceremony options today and I was immediately overwhelmed so I ran straight here to get some insider info!

 

I'm sure there will be many frustrations down the road, but I'm a really laid-back bride, so I'm just going to try to remember to enjoy my day. I want a big, fun, sassy party for all my friends and family.

 

Anyway, hello from a newbie in Washington State!! I have a feeling I'll be here lots cheesy.gif

I'm sorry I missed the name of the bride who wanted to know about Cancun buses and excursions: I am using Cancunandriveriamaya.com. They are charging me $300 for 3 minibuses to take guests from Azul to Cancun and home. I am going to work on the bars to go etc etc. That price is for 30 people. You can email them off their website and they can put together specific packages for you. I am having an oldie pick up at 11:30pm (home by midnight) and a 2am one for my friends. I am positive some will miss that and take a taxi back to the hotel at 5am while eating Mcdonalds. lol that's how we roll!

 

I made my OOT bags (still waiting on welcome letter and who's who booklets) this weekend. I did not take enough pix, but I'll post the ones I have in the next few days.

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
