Amy get pictures off past brides or from your WC and go from there. I've had pictures of various locations with various different set ups from my WC and they've been really useful! if you don't ask..... wink.gif xx

Right now I am still picking a resort but Azul is in the lead partially due to the donkey. LOL.

PS Love all the input from you ladies! I didn't even know about Azul till I tripped across this thread.
welcome Maggie :) good luck with your search for a hotel and let us know where you end up picking!! we love to talk in this thread :)

I googled bloom boxes and all that came up were fuel cells.

Sorry about that! Minor typo....it's BLUME BOXES. blush2.gif

We are having about 25-30 people hopefully and I am inviting few work friends and not much of the our extended families. I am curious if everyone else registered. I of course don't expect that everyone will get us gifts especially those who are coming but I also know that people who aren't coming or understand the logistics of a destination wedding may want to buy us a gift. What has everyone else done? I don't see the big deal if you don't want to buy a gift than don't. The conversation just made me start second guessing our decision...I am pretty sure I read some postings about this before, but of course I can't find them.
hey, not sure how useful this is but we are having a AHR back in the UK and included our gift list details with the invites. we have told people who are coming to Mexico that we don't want them to spend any more money and get us anything.

Surprisingly between us we have actually had quite a few people ask us for our gift list details who are not invited to any of it, so they can buy us a gift...some people do just like to give presents to people they know getting married so I'd say do it!!! what's the harm? you could just put details on your wedding site rather than promote it to everyone and then if people want to buy gifts, they can.

Thanks y'all!
Happy planning

ps. I had a nightmare last night I couldnt' go to my own wedding as I didn't have a dress and I hadn't written my vows or speeches! I literally woke up in a cold sweat.
welcome Linz!!! there is a thread on Azul Beach if that's the one you're thinking of so you should find some info there :)

And there's probably some noobs that need to be added to the list, so if you have your wedding date just PM and I'll add it!

Have a great weekend everyone!
welcome back Nicole!! we missed you! smile117.gif

Unfortunately, it rained and rained and rained our first 3 days there. Not just sprinkles or mist but full on side-blowing rain. We had to cancel the sailing trip (no worries for all you gals that have booked with Paradise Catamarans...full refund with no problems) and ended up renting vans to take our guests into town for dinner instead. They were getting a bit stir-crazy with the rain.

BUT, somebody was looking out for us because we went to bed the night before the wedding to pouring rain and woke up to blue skies on wedding day!!!!!! The clouds rolled in around ceremony time but the first drop didn't fall until the final blessing. Perfect timing if you're going to have rain on your wedding day!

I'll write a full review later with all the details but I just wanted to pop in and say that the whole experience at AB could not have been any better. Superb everything: food, staff, beaches, onsite team. Absolutely perfect!

Now I've got a lot of catching up to do!!!
welcome back Wendy!!!!!!!!!!

so glad to hear you had a brilliant time, and the rain stopped just for you :)

I can't wait to read your full review and see all your pictures!!! so exciting!! unfortunately you're never guaranteed good weather wherever you go but the most important thing is that you got married to the love of your life :)

soooo happy for you! congrats MRS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ladies! so, this time next week I and all the wedding party will be in Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!

 

we've had quite a productive weekend and sorted the ceremony music out at long last!

 

Processional song - Canon in D

Signing the register and photos - Lucky by Jason Mraz and So unbelievable by Craig David

Recessional song - Walking on sunshine! (makes me happy and upbeat just writing the title!! and very apt for Mexico!)

 

We've also sorted out the whole playlist for the reception (3 hours) after we eat, and music to have playing in the background while we eat.

 

We've chosen our meal options and our hors d'oeuvres

 

Now I have a busy week as I am at work ALL week sad.gif so I only have the evenings 'free' and I need to:

 

- work out holiday clothes lol and buy any gaps I have;

- sort out all the stuff we need to take for the wedding;

- wait for my photo album to arrive and sort out and put together my BD photoalbum (pics arrived on Friday!);

- make sure I've got EVERYTHING printed out before we go;

 

and then I think we are done!! I THINK - probably forgotten something really important but that's all I can think of right now....it's really late here and I should have been in bed probably about 3 hours ago!

 

i DO NOT want to be at work this week!!

 

Amy - STOP stressing!! (I know you will be!) remember, it's likely you're worrying about things that other people won't even notice. enjoy the lead up, because I already know the day's going to be over before I know it and I'm scared it's all going to go too quickly and I'll feel like I missed it! RELAX girl, and enjoy it! xx muchos love my fellow sister bride! xx

Katie, so glad you got everything worked out!!!

 

I've been doing ok, working my little bum off all day long, got 5 bags packed today with a list of everything that's in it and who's taking it. I did 8 loads of laundry too!

 

Not only do I have a long work week but I have 4 hours of OT to do this week on top of it, ugh!

LOL, I think I'm more excited to write my review of Andrew than I am about the resort! He's just that good of a guy.

Cleveland Wedding Photographer-Andrew Jordan Photography

Yeah, we are considering Andrew. He called me the other day and does seem really nice and friendly. I am just trying to get FI on board with the cost. It would really take up a huge chunk of our budget and I'm not really trying to budge on much else, so I'll let you know how that goes.

well done on all your packing! you are definitely ahead of me in the packing stakes - I haven't even got my suitcase out!!

tonight after work, my job is to get my suitcase out, find my Mexico clothes from last year and then work out what I've got and need! then washing!!

ah man, that sucks about the O/T sad.gif but I have every faith in you that everything will be done and organised and probably with time to spare!

but mega happy today - FI phoned me this morning and he's soooo excited it's great :) and we can now say that we leave THIS WEEK!! and we get married NEXT WEEK!! Oh. my. God!!!!!!!!! haha

Oh wow Katie, you are getting me so excited :) Congrats on getting so much done over the weekend.

I leave in 4 weeks from today!!! woooo hoooooo

I did nothing over the weekend b/c I had guests visiting and last week I had clients in so this week is work time. Today I just finished my program. It will be 1/2 sheet of thick card stock paper - 1st page welcome with date, 2nd page with family & wedding party names, then 1/4 sheet of paper with the ceremony outline. I am going to cut a hole in the bottom and tie with a ribbon to the sides of the ceremony chairs.

Here is my inspiration I got from the Knot.

    • 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!
