Pictures from our week in Mexico

Recommended Posts

These are the snapshots I took. Normally I'd take more pictures of people, but I knew kristie had that covered. So mostly I took pictures of the hotel for the other catalonia brides to check out. I also took pictures of our adventures once Kristie was gone. I didn't even pull out my camera in Coba.

El Mercado buffet. They only open this one once they reach 75% occupancy.

 

I don't know that this one is an option for a reception. It was only open on the weekend while we were there.

catalonia yucatan side. you really can't tell these are two hotels. They share everything. The yucatan side is booked in europe so there was a lot of diversity. I thought that was a cool thing about the catalonia. when i was in cancun before, i kept meeting others from texas. there were people from all over at the cat.

This is a patio outside of the itallian & mexican restaurants. I think this might be an area they fix up for receptions. if not, it's an area near this. there is a balcony like space outside of the creperie right in front of this patio.

the bar between the two- it was a nice place to relax. there were rarely people there. there was a little terrace that we sat on some nights. one night we took our food to go from teh buffet & ate on the terrace. They served us margaritas. there wasn't anyone else around. You also have an ocean view

breakfast at the la brisa

I loved the yogurt covered bananas.

 

when my mom got home, her first thought after waking up was "breakfast buffet." She was sad to realize she wasn't in Mexico anymore.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
