I'M BACK!!!

 

We just got home last night from our week at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya with 92 guests and everything was beyond Amazing!!  I am not sure where to start.

 

We met with Nancy on Wednesday and made all the arrangements for our Saturday wedding. 

Saturday we started out with our legal ceremony in our hotel room with just our parents.  Then we had our religious ceremony at 4pm with our own rabbi.  It was in the gazebo and we had white chairs for everyone.  They played the music I had brought down on my ipod.  The tropical flowers were so beautiful.  I had my hair done at the salon and they did a great job.  After the ceremony we all went to the plaza for about three hours of cocktails.  We paid extra for Mexican appitizers and they were so good!  At about 8:30pm we all headed over to chilis for an amazing dinner and dancing.  The DJ was the best ever!  Service was amazing.  We paid extra to have the place to ourselves, and had to kick people out---our party just looked that good.  We also arranged the night before for a welcome dinner in the buffet, they set it all up for us, and it felt very private.

 

Bottom line....everything was amazing and I am sad to be home in the cold.

V- how exciting!  I agree with Nic, remember just 12 months ago... seemed so far away huh?  now its ur turn! 

 

 

Thanks all for the compliments... I originally saw the legal dress at Macy's for $125!! ...but then I went to Burlington Coat Factory and the same Calvin Klein dress was $39! It was meant to be :)

hey... not on here much anymore but just catching up. I did have two guests add on the week before. All I did was email Nancy with their names, where they were staying and dates there. It was absolutely no problem. Luckily I had extra mugs :) So don't worry!

We have a couple people still telling us they are coming too. I am basically counting them out at this poont and if they decide to come the week before then I will deal with it then.

 

I am a little worried about my OOT bags too. I sure hope I don't have any issues with customs.

Welcome back JRB!!! I can't wait to hear all about it and see pictures! Dying to see how your hair came out- I think I remember you saying you have curly hair and were worried about it. I think I am doing the same thing as you with regard to ceremony, cocktail hour and then dinner too!  By any chance are you on facebook?

 

Jen - thanks for popping in! We miss you!
