    Hi Ladies,

    I was reading the thread “Customs in Mexico: an effort to gather the info in one thread!” where they mention bringing receipts with us for items we are putting in our OOT bags as well as putting notes in your suitcases in Spanish saying items were for a wedding, not for resale. I had not thought about that before so thought I would pass the information along. It’s a good thread to check out if you haven’t already.

    Shelk: I hope you are having a fabulous time at your wedding!

    I have my legal day Feb. 24th and leave Feb. 27th for Mexico

      Yay Mrs March! Are you all ready to rock and roll? How exciting to be so close. Thanks for that reminder link. I came across it awhile ago, and totally forgot about it.

      Katie- how did the fitting go? I just found out that my dress just came in!! I'm going to pick it up next Friday- I can't believe it got here so early.

        Do you know if we need to bring any of the legal stuff to RPRM
        I was told that we won't get the official documents back from our legal day until 6-8 weeks after we actually do the civil ceremony. ahh, in that case i hope we don't need them for the resort!

        Learning more and more every day not to sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff!! :)

          MrsMarch - Wow, your wedding is coming up fast!! can't wait to hear all about it and see your pictures!! Are you all ready to go?

          As for the reciepts for all your OOT bag stuff, I made 1 reciept that included everything on it just on excel...I didn't want to be pulling out tons of receipts. I didn't make a spanish version of it either. We had no issues though, they did look through our stuff more but thats all. My sister brought my mugs for me and she had to pay $25, no biggie though.

          Also, if you are just having a symbolic ceremony at the RPRM and you are already married before you go (or getting married when you get back) you do not have to bring any kind of documents.

          If you have any other questions, ask away!!

            I HAVE TO SHARE EXCITEMENT!!!

            When we orignially booked it was for 410 a night, pretty much for everyone. I just looked on the Riu website and the time for my wedding has gone down to 298 a night!!!!! Contacted my TA, and she adjusted the rates for my whole group that has booked with her so far!

            Just saved $875!!

            I think if you have booked straight through the hotel, you also can get the adjustment. Just a thought for everyone! yay!

                KimmyG: I am having a religious ceremony, so do not need to worry about anything legal….well at least in terms of the ceremony in Mexico
                Ael sent me the separate menu they offer if you have a private reception ($1900) w/ table service ($25 per person- otherwise the private reception is buffet style). I thought I would share with you all in case you were considering this:
                You can make your own menu choosing one option of each time course:
                SOUP OR CREAM: Broccoli Cream OR Yucatan style lime soup with chicken
                ENTREES: Ham with melon OR Smoked Salmon
                MAIN COURSE: Rib eye a Maitre d´hotel, Fillet mignon, Chicken Breast with papaya and mango sauce OR Surf ad Turf Skewer
                DESSERT: Crepes with vanilla ice cream OR Peach Melba: ice cream, peach and strawberry sauce

                I hope everyone has a nice Valentine ’s Day! My fianc© surprised me w/ an early gift; diamond huggie earrings!!!

                      Yes Alexis he did do good! Well no big plans here, my FI works at a restaurant that doesn't allow people to take off Valentine's Day because of how busy it is so he is working this morning. Then we are just cooking dinner together and addressing our STDs tonight :)
