    Meghan - Your pictures are awesome!  And your dress is absolutely stunning!! 

     

    Did you get your hair done at Vassa Spa?  Or a friend?  Its a perfect loose updo!  If the spa did it, I might just have to print one of your pictures to bring with me!  :)

      TLGnhci-- thank you so much for responding! I'm still getting the hang of this website :) Do you have a photographer in mind? I wasn't sure what the reviews were on the photographers provided by the resort, or others within the area. That would be amazing if you girls are able to work out a deal, great thinking!

       

      We are getting married April 17th-- a little over 200 days away!

      Michelle, the invitation is wrapped in crepe paper.  We had originally wanted to put starfish on there, but they would have been harder to mail, and we wanted to get the invites out quickly (during our booking period.) 

       

      For a photographer, we are trying to work out a deal with four of us girls getting married the same week.  I believe we may have three that are "in" so far, so I'm hoping it all works out  The price is great and the photos are amazing.  :o

       

      My TTD is from venus.com.  It was only $30.  When day are you getting married in April?

       





      The invites have been mailed, and as far as I know, they all traveled fine.  They were able to go right in an envelope, and there weren't even any extra charges!





      Mahalo, I am doing the exact same colors just the week after you!  Let me know what kind of reply or pics you get from the WC. I emailed her my inspiration pics for some pricing estimates, but haven't heard back from her.  Are you doing a beach wedding?  What color tulle are you using on the ceremony site?  What about chair bows?  I was thinking we may be able to share costs!!

        We are also skipping the cake at the resort. I have an amazing "cake lady" I use at home, so we are going to have her make a cake for us at our AHR. She makes a 3 tiered cake (with filling) for 150 people for around $250. Can't beat it. I have heard differing thoughts about the cakes at the resort. They are defintiely pricey, so if you are looking to save money, I say, skip the cake and choose a private buffet dinner that includes dessert!

            Here's my two cents on the weather...  We went to Azul for 5 days in September and the forecast said 40-60% chance of rain all 5 days!  We were pretty bummed, but hoped we'd at least get to enjoy the rooms and restaurants.  In the entire 5 days it rained for a grand total of 10 minutes!  Some gray clouds quickly rolled in one of the other days, but they seemed to disappear just as fast.  My fiance went to Cancun in July and the exact same thing happen!

             

            Statistics will show you which months have a greater chance of rain, but since its tropical weather, rain showers tend to come and go quickly.  The only thing to remember is Hurricane season is June 1 - November 30, so as scary as it sounds, you may want to have a small thought in your head of what you would do if a Hurricane happen to head towards Cancun the week of your wedding. 

             

            To ultimately answer your question, I wouldn't let the rain statistics dictate which month you get married.  Pick the month that works best for you and your FI!

             

            Hope this helps some.

            We have yet to decide on the resort we'll have our wedding at next year but Azul Sensatori is in the top 3. We plan to visit in mid-November to decide for sure. 

            Question for all of you...I see that there are a lot of Spring brides but that might be too soon for us. What's everyone's opinion on weather in the area and when it's best? We had our hearts set on early October but now I'm reading more and more that talks about a lot of rain during that time. Has anyone been in fall? If October isn't ideal, is June or July totally out of the question? Thanks in advance for your input!

              Lol, thanks!!  It just kinda worked out that way.  We are getting to old to be waiting around!! Ha ha. 

               

              Where do you live in Maryland?  I'm from Southern Maryland. 

               

              Thanks girls for all the advice on the cake.  I feel more comfortable with either doing just a small one to cut, or none at all!  :o)

               

              Oh, and Michelle, who is your "cake lady?"

                Congratulations! He really surprised you with the proposal from a big screen TV!!!

                Hey girls,

                 

                Has anyone considered skipping the cake?  I can't decide if I really want/need a cake. 

                 

                Do any of our married girls have pics of your cake? 

                 

                Oh, and my bridesmaid realized that it wasn't fair to me to skip my wedding based on her feelings for another guest, so it's all good now! :o)

                  Hi girls! I don´t want a cake but I´m renting a fake one  which my   WC suggested! I think its a great idea!! We will be having small scones and desserts for everyone to enjoy ( specially me who happens to have  a sweeet tooth) but no cake, only for the pictures I guess...


                  Nan and Erik forever!!!

                    Hi Meghan, I requested you as a friend on FB this morning...I would love to see your pictures. I am also planning to use Erik, but have a ton of concerns because I haven't seen much of his work. Thank you so much for coming back to share with us!

                      I'm wondering this too....loved Meghan's hair...looked perfectly messy...that's what I'm thinking with maybe just 1 flower...or something like that :)
