We'll have about 18-20 people.... I have a couple that is still supposed to come but they haven't given me their info yet. As far as I know, the hotel is now sold out for the dates we're going soooo, if they say they booked and really didn't, they are S.O.L. I can't wait til this is over. My guests are driving me CRAZY. I probably won't do a planning thread...but will do a review with pics and stuff when I return.


So my new anxiety? The weather. The extended forcast doesn't look so good for me. Rain starting next Wednesday...sooo hopefully its the 20min down pour and sunny right after. Urgh....

V- Thanks for the info.

how was the ceremony?  does the minister work with how you want your ceremony to be and what you want him to say?  I wanted to add something different and was wondering if they can do it. does Nancy need to know this prior or does she go over it with us during our meeting?


I'm having 14 ppl coming and can't wait any longer..I sooo need to relax and destress.   I started packing last night and don't know how i'm going to fit everything.. i need to find more luggages!!

I'll have my planning thread by next week.

I haven't been on here in forever, but I just checked back in.


Virginia-Congrats on being a Mrs. I'm so glad everything went well. I saw some pictures on facebook and you looked beautiful.


Seeflowers-I second what Virginia said. It was supposed to rain everyday we were there and it only rained one morning before anyone was even up. We only knew because the sidewalks were wet. Keep in mind we were even there when the tropical storm was at sea and didn't get any rain.

Thanks Dana! Nice of you to check in!! ;)


Celestial - we didn't do anything specific or different during our cerenony but they guy we had was AWESOME! To be honest, earlier in the week there was a wedding I saw on the beach where the judge's accent was so thick that Nancy actually grabbed the microphone from him a few times to clarify what he was saying. I was horrified. The guy we had (his picture is below - I have no clue what his name is but maybe you could request him using this picture?) was really, really nice. He actually seemed like he really cared and he was very easy to understand. A few of my guests (including my cousin who is a priest) commented on what a nice job he did, especially seeing as I never met him before the ceremony!  I'm sure you could request whatever you want to add to the ceremony though and he would incorporate it!

I had the same minster. Everyone said how great he was. I was so nervous being the center of attention that I didn't hear a word he said, but all my family said he said the nicest things.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
