This is so funny because itâ€™s my biggest complaint too. I get carded 99.999999% of the timeâ€¦ Iâ€™m talking about cigarettes, rated R movies etc. I always get a laugh or a scoff too if Iâ€™m tryinâ€™ to buy alcohol if Iâ€™m not done up to the freakinâ€™ 9â€™s. Itâ€™s really annoying when people tell me I look 19â€¦ I donâ€™t WANT to look 19!

What youtube videos did you watch... I watched a few last week but didn't find any really wedding specific one
I do love saying it! It feels weird whenever I heard it out loud too.
Hmmm I need to find that videoâ€¦ I was searching for smokey eye tutorials because thatâ€™s what I wanted on my wedding day. So the video may not be pertinent to what youâ€™re looking forâ€¦ AH I found it!
silly question... does the resort provide beach towels for everyone? if so, how is it provided?
They do, like Nicole said they give you a towel card and you can get 2 towels a day I think but you have to return them. They charge you like $30 a towel if you donâ€™t return them one of my guests found out. I never used the towel card, I had a swim up suite and just never left the pool, it was too hot to care about a towel and especially when I could just swim back to my room

1) How far away from AS are the local markets/vendors in order to purchase Mexican trinkets and such for the OOT bags? Are they within walking distance or is AS smack dab in the middle of the jungle as I read elsewhere?
2) When and how did you ladies chose your reception site, especially since they say there are two weddings per day? Did you get to select the site or was it chosen for you based upon your party size? Also, how do they decide which wedding party gets first dibs on the reception site?
I am at the stage of trying to figure out where our reception will be held. How did you decide or arrive at your selection? Also, have you already had your reception location confirmed by your WC?
Well, I had plans to get some local snacks and whatnot when I got to Mexico. Upon arrival youâ€™ll notice that you are literally in the smallest town ever and really in the middle of nowhere. They turn off the main road and drive into the forest and thereâ€™s the resort, literally is in the middle of forest. I couldnâ€™t even tell you where the closest vendor or market is. If you wanted to head to Cancun, itâ€™s close to a 25-30 minute drive you could hire a van to take you into town which you could do there easily. I would say nothing is walking distance from the hotel, so donâ€™t plan on hiking it anywhere, LOL
I told them where I wanted my reception and requested to reserve it very early in my planning stages. First come first serve Iâ€™m pretty sure.
I decided on my reception location because I knew I definitely didnâ€™t want it on the beach and I definitely didnâ€™t want it in an open space. I wanted it more private, more secluded and somewhere I could hang my lanterns and lights etc. After getting confirmed on my wedding day, ceremony spot and reception location was the very first thing I did.
