Jennifer- Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I can't wait to check TA for the other one. You and your husband looked fabulous and I'm so glad you were happy with most everything! That was so nice they surprised you with such a special dinner :)

 

Girls-

 

I'm loving seeing everyone's gowns. Here are links to the two I'm deciding b/w. I'm making my final decision this Saturday!

Very good to know about the minister. I'll be sure to ask about Alina. Did the resort provide the symbolic certificate or did the minister? That's a really nice keepsake to have.
They did excellent matching your bouquet!
Many congratulations on your marriage. It looks like a beautiful wedding!

Yes, Claudia's husband's team did our video. Cancun Wedding Videos | Mayan Riviera Wedding Videographer | Miguel Cantarell - Home. Or you can go to www.claudiophoto.com and that will take you his site. Take a look at some of them; they are breathtaking, IMO. Picking songs was incredibly difficult because something that is no big deal now becomes: WOW I have to pick the BEST 6-7 songs EVER!!! And then you become a psycho wedding forum chick, which is what I call you guys!!! Just kidding!!! Anyway, I attached the songs, 2-3 at a time to emails to Claudia before we left and burned 2 copies just in case to take with me. The ones we chose, if anyone cares or wants inspiration, are:

I'm Yours Jason Mraz
All I want is You Barry Louis Polisar (Juno Soundtrack)
Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop Landon Pigg
A Beautiful Day U2
When the Stars Go Blue (Live) The Corrs Featuring Bono
When You Say Nothing At All Allison Krause
Come Away with Me Norah Jones

I encourage to explore some of these if you've never heard them or need something unique. Stacey killed a few that i liked too though:

I'll Grow Old With You Adam Sandler
Somewhere Over the Rainbow Israel Kamakawaniwo (WOW)
Kiss Me Sixpence None the richer
We Are going to be Friends the White Stripes
Anyone Else But You Moldy Peaches (also from Juno Soundtrack)
Maybe I'm Amazed Jem OR Paul McCartney

It will be 3-4 weeks before I get the photos and the video......

Oops forgot the certificate question because i got carried away listening to music again....
The certificate was there with our names printed at the ceremony. I am guessing Lomas made it and all of us signed it? All 3 of our names are printed on it. It looks very nice. I am going to do something creative with it and my veil; like a memory box or something....

Thanks for the music suggestions, that is really the only thing that I was having some issues with. I love love that Over the Rainbow song and never knew who it was..so thanks for that! I also appreciate hearing you went with the "wing it" concept, because I am so that kind of person too! I'm having about 35 people attend, but most of them can "wing it" too! You looked beautiful and just happy!

Jenn: Thanks for the fantastic review...you are very candid and we all appreciate it! And you look stunning.

 

Question: How did you feel about the time you got married? I am currently booked for 4pm next November (after the time changes) and we have family and friends joining us...do you think we'll have enough time to get all the shots with guests etc before the sun goes down or do you suggest we bump the time up to 3pm?

 

THANKS!!!! Looking forward to the rest of your photos!

Honestly, I was worried about 4 pm. There is not a sunset, it justs starts getting overcast looking IMO. In November it is not smoking hot at 3 PM either. I guess it depends on how many pics you get out of the way before the ceremony, we did none. By about 430 or 500, my photographer was having trouble getting the lighting he wanted. No worries about starting a cocktail reception or other kinda early, because it really will be dark around 530 or so. Thanks for the compliments!

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
