I was wondering too if the mugs would be worth it or not?? I feel like, unless people carry them everywhere with them at the resort, when they need the mug they won't have it. Some of my guests may only be there for 2 full days besides the wedding day, so I'm just trying to rationalize if 2 days of use are worth it (of course, they may use at home too). Some people have recommended Bubba Kegs, but these just seem a bit pricey to have to purchase 15-20+ of them.

 

I was also wondering, for anyone who has already been married in Mexico...is it an issue getting all this stuff through customs?? I was planning on packing everything for the OOT bags in a suitcase and putting them together down there.

Hey there! as far as through customs you will not have any problems...i actually packed an old suitcase filled with all stuff for my OOT bags and then just left the suitcase down there for garbage afterwards....I didnt have any problem with customs with anything that I brought...As far as are the mugs worth it, based on my wedding they were defintiely awesome to have...we made everyone up a bag filled with a few things, one of them being the mugs...and i would say 80% of our guests carried those bags everywhere with them on the resort except for dinner...they loved bringing the bag down to the pool to hold all their stuff in and everyone used their mugs to fill up their drinks at the pool bar....i think i posted a picture on here somewhere of my OOT bags and the contents...I was very happy that I spent the time to make them up b/c everyone used them and kept commenting on how impressed they were that I was so thoughtful to make them...so in the end it made me very happy that i made my guests happy :)

I bought beer steins from factory 21 with our name and wedding info on them. They were super cheap per cup but you have to buy in lots of 100. Since we are having a bunch of guests it ended up being with it. We are having a volleyball tournament so we are getting everyone a "team" shirt with their nicknames on the back and their number. In ended up being really fun to get everyones nicknames from their loved ones....and they have no clue why we need them. I also put disposable razors Tylenol anti bacterial and bandaids in everyones bag. My fiancé also made cd's for each bag with our favorite songs that remind us of one another the cd's ended up being super cheap and we ordered custom labels. I still want to add bottles of hot sauce to everyones bag but I a little concern about how to get all that glass down there. I am now feeling better About the OTT bags....now to tackle the programs! Oh and I am still hoping they can fix my dress but no use stressing about it!

Love the t-shirt w/ nicknames idea...so cute.  The volleyball tournament sounds fun too.  We just might have to plan something like that. 

 

What happened to your dress?  Is that in another thread?

Does anyone know if the resort allows anything floatable in the pool?  I found floating beer pong tables and I think it would be so fun to do a beer pong tournament out at the pool the day after the wedding.

Well I am 5 ft tall so must dresses were crazy long on me anyway. I however decided on an all lace gown that has a scalloped hem. Since the hem is a major part of the dress I had to pay extra to have the designer custom cut the dress. To ensure the hem was ok. However, the dress was not custom cut when it came in. The bridal salon has been great though and they assure me that they can fix it. (keeping fingers crossed) it was too close to the wedding to sent the dress back to the designer and wait for it to come back. I am going on Wednesday to see the first round of alterations. Hopefully all is well with the dress it is just that be Use it is all lace it makes it really tricky to take it in anywhere much less shorten in since it is all one piece of fabric. Like I said no use worrying about it. One of those things that I can't control. I am more worried about my guests having a great time then I am the dress lol.;) name="sxcT" url="/forum/thread/24314/aventura-spa-palace/1770#post_1562765"]

Yah, Mine is June 2012 and they have extended the 1500 promotion.

We just visited Aventura Cove, Beach Palace, and Playacar palace and Aventura was so impressive. We were really leaning toward Beach Palace and we loved the location of Playacar, but our wedding party is larger, so we felt like we would never be able to escape seeing anyone if we were at Beach and Playacar was just in no way nearly as nice as the other 2. Aventura was BEAUTIFUL

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
