Here is a pic - you can tie the bow anywhere you want:

      I also love the Moon Palace. I've heard that if you bring your vendor with you (i.e. photographer, etc), and they are guests of the hotels then you can get around paying the vendor fees. I have a feeling we'll need to bring a lot of the decor with us to create what we want, but my wedding planner and TA seem to think it's very do-able. And although I haven't met an Indian DW bride yet, I'm sure we're not the first... it's just MUCH more challenging than we originally expected! :)
       

      There is suppose to be a Sikh wedding on the Friday after we arrive. I will try and take some pictures! But I will not be back until Feb 2...so it will be a while before I can post. And from my understanding they have about 100 guests.

Any ideas for decorations to make it pretty. They say it is like the zavas plaza area minus the gazebo in the middle.

       

      Also, does anyone know how much it is for brdiesmaids to get their hair done. I have the spa menu but it doesn't specifically say I don't think.

      I am heading down for our wedding January 19. I will try to find this area and take pictures. If there are palm trees around, you could hang paper laterns, or string lights perhaps?

      And girls, is it just me or are the wedding coordinators pretty much useless?  Maybe that's a harsh word to use but I feel like I'm always referred to the Lomas site and never really get a true answer on anything.  I guess that's why this forum is so wonderful though.  I need to set up a phone call.  Maybe that would help. 

       

      Any of our January brides using the exotic gazebo?  I'm wondering about the candy cane vs draped shears.  I really don't like the candy cane look.  :( 

       

      And I thought the reservation at Spoons was good for 50 people. Was just told it's 40.  Am I crazy, or was it 50 a while back?
        

      The WC do seem quite useless at times. However they become much more helpful as your wedding approaches. I also found calling them and talking directly to them also really helped. Phone them, ask your questions, then email with all the points you just talked about. I usually got a fairly good response doing it this way.

       

      Spoon I think was for 40, and you could pay for the guests above that, to a total of 50. (I think?)

      I''m new to the blog and all the things you girls are posting is very helpful. I just have a few questions i'm hoping someone can help with.

       

      #4 For brides already married there - how safe was the area (I have a brother who is freaking cause he is worried)

        

      For the person who said they went through destinationweddings.com - I too went through them and they are HORRIBLE - I did most the travel details myslef (I even had to call and complain once). My coordinator is totally clueless and unorganized!!!

      Can't help with your other questions, but the Mayan Riveria is very safe to travel in. All the bad drug wars,etc. are thousands of miles away. But as with anything, use common sense! Stay in the tourist areas, don't flash cash around, etc. My FI and I have been travelling down there for over 9 years, and I have never had any problems. They people are very kind and friendly! You and your brother will love it!

       

      As for bad travel agents...I think we all have issues! LOL. I just keep babysitting my little idiot TAs. Keep calling them almost daily when it was required and telling them what I needed them to do. Our travel costs were due November 16, and even though I told them to charge my Visa back in October, after constant phone calls I finally managed to confirm we were paid up Dec 22! Over a month after all our guests! All I could keep thinking was....all my guests will be on the beach, and FI and I will be at home! LOL

       Agreed!

      Just do a google search for sunset times in Cancun, Mexico with your date. That's how I go our times for in January.

      In all of the pictures I see, the water doesn't look really blue (like Cancun and Riviera Maya water usually does). For the girls that have been there, are the pictures just deceiving?

      oops....for some reason my response didn't post.

       

      Regarding the blue water. It looks very grey in the pictures because the sky was overcast, which will reflect into the water. The water is usually quite blue, although not quite as stunning as you might see in other areas. This is due to the coral reef that is directly in front of the resort. Hope that helps.

          I just went to a regular store here in Toronto.  They had multiples left - size 6 or lower only.  I'm sure you'd find the same elsewhere but I would go soon b/c boxing week specials will soon disappear!
