    My MOM told me to walk around with a satchel that was attached to my wrist to collect envelopes in!! HAHAHAHA LOL LOL, she's very old school =) I think if people give envelopes, I will just give them to my mom to hold for me... she can carry around a satchel, I'm not!!!

      I will post their response once I have it.

      Ohhh, the last picture is nice... I bet they charm an arm and a leg for that though =) When I asked Aurora about the lighting, she just told me I should buy those "luminaries". I don't think this should be such a big deal, the resort should have options, I shouldn't be worrying about how people are going to read the menu. Geesh.

      Oh and my wedding band came... and the jeweler must have made the WRONG SIZE for me, so now they're fighting me, telling me I have to pay a 10% restocking fee to get another ring. (It's an eternity band, so difficult to size) HAHAHA of course, just another speed bump!

        Hi Girls,

        I am having my first AHR 2 weeks after the ceremony in Mexico. I would like to show my wedding video along with a slide show for the guests who weren't able to attend. I will also be putting different pictures on each table from the ceremony. So my question is, how long did it take to receive your photos and video from the resort? Also has anyone done a large picture frame with a collage of photos from their wedding, if so can you post pictures? I may try and have people sign the border of the framed collage as a guest book.

        Curious what you all think,

        Amy

          Hey Amy! We actually got our video before we left - we got married on Saturday and we got to pick it up on Tuesday night (the night before we left)... so we didn't have to worry about shipping and all that.

            Go to page 260 (assuming you view at 10 posts per page) and check out the pics of Whamsuzanne's set-up, you will see the light columns

              Hay ladies,
              I have been out of the country for a bit and you can even imagine the amount of hair pulling... trying to get Anabel and/or Landy for communications. Didn't help that I had little to no communications as well. Anyways, I am as far as nailing down the date but cant get them to send me a contract...
              Also, found a photographer that I love, but I dont want to sign his contract if they wont allow him to shoot the wedding ect... Any tactics that you all have....
              Thanks.

                      Hi everyone! I have been reading this thread for a while and have gotten so much great info to help me with my planning. Reading past brides reviews makes it so much easier to get a picture of what I can expect. I am a little disappointed though as it seems the resort is not as flexible in 2010 as they were for previous years. At least most people seem to continue to be very satisfied with their wedding and experience.
                      Here is my info:
                      Username: L&A2010
                      Names: Ashley & Luis
                      Date & Time: November 1, 2010
                      Wedding package: Ultimate
                      Wedding extras (through the resort): Still unsure
                      Outside vendors (cost charged by vendor and any fees charged by the resort): Possibly using an outside photographer
                      Type of ceremony: Legal
                      Coordinator: Aurora
                      Number of guests: approx 44
                      Ceremony location and time: Beach at 4
                      Cocktail hour location and time: undecided
                      Reception location and time: undecided - poolside?
                      Photographer: I want an outside photographer for wedding and TTD and hope that I can use the resort photographer for something else
                      Videographer: Resort
