We are Olympus fans!
Thanks! I don't know much about Olympus, but I did hear it is also a quality brand.

I'm not sure if the Zocalla location is still available for Private receptions but our WC pretty much said this was the option for outdoor/private/covered space for dancing etc.
Thanks for helping clarify that for me ladies! I think I'll wait and see if I feel that premium is worth the difference b/w the $950 Pearl Pckge and the "Free" Package (hardly free if you think of it that way hahaha).
Yes, you are right, it will all work out! I too am having our TA price out the difference between a Premium Suite versus the regular Suites to see if it is even worth downgrading to the "free" package. I will let you know when I hear back from her!

PM has a few markets in town and the MX version of 7Elven, OXOX (sp).

NICE to hear! I don't know how adventurous our photog will be since she is a local, but I fully intend to scout some sites out in hopes of her wanting to take advantage of them. :-)

Oh it's called bighugelabs.com which is what I used to make my inspiration boards
Yeah AS/AB is technically in Puerto Morelos, I wish I would have known where to go while I was down there or had been adventurous enough to figure it out! I was at the swim up bar with FI at the time drinking a margarita and I said "Oh we have to get OOT bag stuff in town" and he was like... "right..." and I was like "yeah who am I kidding, I'm so not leaving this pool all day" LOL! So do it BEFORE you start drinking for the day, my advice
Thanks again for sending over those photos as well as for the bighugelabs sites. My FI enjoyed getting an idea of our options.
I will check out that site just as soon as I get some good sleep! ;-)

I am going to be busy reading the older posts tomorrow at work, hope it is not too busy lol, lots to read. also don't know what reception dinner options we have. I would have written back to all of you who were kind enough to welcome me, but I'm not down with multi-quoting yet! Also my ticker is so small! Haha, oh well at least i figured out how to do it. Thanks for listening to me vent!

I love it. I never made an inspiration board. I love your peacock idea!!!
We are considering the beach as well! We just need to make sure the wind is still comfy for the elderly. Can scare off my Granny who is traveling all that way. ;-)
Thanks! I dug it up for gingerlover. The peacock seems to be a big theme amongst Etsy.com sellers for some reason.

Someone asked about maracas?!? I bought maracas for our wedding at
Yes, for sure TTD in PM!! Andrew's right, there really are some sweet spots. We went to all kinds of places on all sides of town and got some amazing shots out of it. Since you're bringing your photog with you, he/she should definitely scope out the town ahead of time to find the gems.
Thanks, I hope she will be interested! I will go scope out PM with FI before the wedding and see what we can make of it. I'm sure it will all be beautiful!

Plus their rates INCLUDE insurance, additional driver and 'get out of trouble' card (basically it's a card they give to tourists, so in case you get pulled over, the cop is suppose to just give you a warning and let you off the hook- but you do have to ask for the card!) I drive standard, and most of the cars seemed to be standards, so in case you need an automatic make sure to request it.
Excellence Car Rental
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the inspiration boards...they are beautiful!

We may need to start a DSLR thread lol
We just might, I just don't know if I could keep up with this thread as well as another! LOL I'm still walking around like a nerd with my regular old camera bag. I do want a new one though. :-)
