    Thanks all for the replies regarding the invites!

    I also read in an earlier post some people thought of doing excursion as a gift for their guests. Are any of you doing that, if yes what were you all thinking planning and who are you booking it through, also around how much does it cost per person. I guess it would depend on the type of excursion but I just wanted to get an idea.

      I am going back and forth. Since I am asking guests to travel for the wedding, I feel bad asking them to travel for a bachelorette party (my friends are all over the place so there isn’t one central location to host a party). However, it will be nice for friends who can’t make it to Mexico to partake in some wedding-related event.
      MrsMarch - I am just planning to do something in Mexico with my friends just because my friends will be travelling from all over to make it to our wedding.

        I'm wondering how far in advance you should do the legal day before you go to Mexico, or rather how close is the closest you should cut it, if you want to make sure it's legal before you go?
        Thanks Kimmy :) The certificate we got was not the "real" one....that takes 10 days. You can either have them mail it, which I assume would take over 10 days, or you can pick it up on the 10th day. We got married way early for other reasons...but if you're wanting it to be legal and have the proof before you leave for mexico then I'd suggest 10 days. Otherwise you could do it right before you leave and just wait to get the certificate when you get back home!

          I LOVE your pics Josie!!!! Sooo cute!

          BTW-not only did my cousin and her husband back out today, but my SIL did too just a few hours ago. I am okay though because my brother is still coming (SIL has a valid excuse now). I was just sad because I lost 3 people with pretty much 1 week to go Oh well!!!

            Josie- You guys look SO cute in your pictures! Thanks for posting them!

            Desiree- I'm so sorry to hear that you've had three people back out with such short notice; good to hear that your brother is still going though. I really can't believe that you're leaving SO SOON! I'm getting so excited for you!

              Josie, Thanks for posting the pictures!!! So, you're officially a married woman!!! XD XD I was actually thinking about getting married two days before I left for Mexico.. now I'm thinking maybe that's not such a great idea anymore.. :/

              Desiree, I"m sorry to hear about your guests backing out, and it's a bit of a downer, but in the end, you're gonna have the most amazing time of your life!! and we definitely can't wait to hear about your wedding and your stay at the Riu!!!!! LOL, i wonder how people actually get to sleep the night before they leave!!

                Thanks girls! Y'all are so sweet! June-I know I won't be sleeping at all, haha. I will be too excited!

                Are any of y'all doing any type of excursions?? I know that we have planned to do a jeep ride around Cozumel to all the area bars and we want to swim with the dolphins somewhere. I can't wait. I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins.

                    Thanks again to everyone! You girls are so sweet! Thanks for being excited for me, even though our legal day is SO premature. Jason's parents are really happy and feel that we are "doing the right thing" by legally getting married before living together...so that makes me feel better. My mom had a hard time with it though because she felt it was taking away from the wedding....but in the end she came around and everything feels the same and I'm still just as excited!

                    Right now I'm SOOOO excited for you, Desiree! I know you will have the time of your life, and from previous convo's your SIL doesnt sound like the most exciting person anyway but I'm still sad that there are less people coming. That being said, I promise the day of won't be any less exciting and Tyler is going to be so excited to see you walking down the aisle!!!! You are going to be the most beautiful bride, I can't wait to see pics!!!!!

                    PLUS you'll have a big fabulous AHR to celebrate with everyone and they can be jealous as they watch your slideshow!!!!!

                      Desiree- It sounds like you have a couple of fun excursions planned...you will definitely LOVE swimming with the dolphins! I actually did it a couple of years ago. I'm hoping to try to plan some excursions for our guests too, but haven't put too much thought into it yet.

                      Is anyone arranging AND paying for their guests excursions? While I would love to be able to pay for everyone to do something, I think it would be way out of our budget. I think I'm just going to arrange something and tell everyone the price, and they if they want to do it they can, but if not, that's fine too.
