We're writing our ceremony for Mexico and it will be really special and personal for us, we don't want people to think that the trip for our wedding is a waste because its not when we're really getting legally married. I'm not sure what I'll wear, I guess because I just look at it as a legal technicality and not really our wedding. The only reason we're doing it is so we don't have to wait for the Mexican government to send paperwork - which they say can be a year.
Our AHR is about a month after our wedding in Mexico. We're renting a very groovy bar/restaurant and having open bar and passed houres d'ouvres, DJ, slideshow of the wedding, I'm wearing my dress again, all that jazz.
RIU RM Palace Brides??

I was wondering about mrsbettyb too! I hope everything went alright. She is probably just tired and catching up on stuff at home.
Does anyone check tripadvisor regularly? We do, and RPRM has moved up two spots to the #16 hotel in Playa del Carmen. Some recent reviewers had WONDERFUL things to say, so that makes me really excited!

I am torn about having a AHR, my family all lives in the same city as my fiance and I however most of his family lives accorss the county, that is one of the reasons we decided on doing the destination wedding so everyone had to spend money, not just his family. We met in Mexico so that is the #1 reason we are getting married there. I want to have an AHR for the people that couldn't come to Mexico but does that mean we have one where we live and one where my fiance's family lives? Then thats 3 parties...things could get expensive that way. I do like parties though, I am torn, any advice?

For those ladies who are getting legally married before going to the RIU, how far in advance are you having the ceremony? What are you going to wear? What about the guests, I don't want to make it a big deal but will people be offended if they were not invited to the actual ceremony?
Is everyne planning a AHR? if you are, how long after the actual wedding until you have the AHR?
sorry, I've got lots of questions...
I might be the only one on the our forum not having an AHR! Like you, my FI's family is from across the US and we just didn't want to leave them out. We also thought about a bbq, but being in Chicago it is also too cold and we don't want to wait till spring or summer because it's long over by then, and I didnt want to deal with people who ARE coming to Mexico feeling like they have to attend 5 events for my wedding. That's just me though. For anyone that can't make it they can always check out our website to see how it went down!
I have also heard of live streaming via internet so people can log in to watch the ceremony live if they can't make it. Does anyone know if the RIU RM offers this? That might be a great way to include more people for those who are interested in that!
