I am thinking of having 6 songs total; one when everyone is being seated, one for my flower girl, one for my ring bearers, one for me walking down the isle, one as background music during the vows and one as we're exiting. How in the world is that going to work? Do I need to bring shortened versions of the songs or will the coordinator know what to do?? I' m so lost on this subject, would appreciate any input!
      On another subject, are most of you planning on going straight into your cocktail hour or are you leaving a gap so you can get pictures without missing the cocktail hour yourselves? These last minute thoughts are creeping up and haunting me!
      It's not the wedding coordinator who takes care of the music, it's another resort employee.

      I would provide them a list that says
      song 1 (name) - Flower Girl
      Song 2 (name) - Ring bearer
      etc

      I haven't ever heard anyone have any problems with the music. I would just tell them to fade it out and then skip to the next song (although it's possible the song would be faded it not the best part of the song, but there's not much you can do, it's impossible to figure out exactly how long it will take to walk down the aisle, even if you practiced it, the person may walk faster or slower on the actual day, especially if it's a kid).

      I myself only used 1 song for everyone to walk down the aisle, so I didn't have to worry so much, but it's up to you.

      As for how long I said it took to walk down the aisle, my guess (if my memory is correct, it has been 2 years!) is approx 1 minute (maybe a bit longer) per person from behind the season grill to the gazebo. But keep in mind that it's common for wedding party members to start walking when the people in front of them are like halfway to the front. But for the bride you usually wait until the wedding party is completely at the front and in position so that all eyes are on you.

      But the timing is not what's in the attachment on page 1, that is the ceremony script. I will look into why the attachment isn't working, last time I tried it worked fine.

      I only needed the regular (wallet size) birth certificate. At the time you only needed the certified one if you were divorced or widowed. I'm not 100% sure if it's changed since then, the brides who have returned have not mentioned it.

        I checked and the attachment downloaded fine. If you have enough points, then my guess is that it must be your computer settings. When I click on it, right away I get the small little pop up window that asks me where I want to save the document (the same type of pop up window I get anytime I save anything on my computer, not a window that is particular to this forum).

        Here is what the attachment says (the ceremony text for legal ceremony)




        Ladies and gentlemen, according to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of Matrimony which is an honorable status:

        ________________________________ and _________________________________

        Seeing it is a very important act, I would kindly ask everybody to remain in silence.
        As witnesses of this important act, there are present here:

        1. - _________________________________
        2. - _________________________________
        3. - _________________________________
        4. - ________________________________


        Who will sign the marriage document.

        A great Mexican philosopher of the ninetheen century, Mr. Melchor Ocampo, wrote in his legendary letter, the following words that until today are always read in our wedding ceremonies “ marriage “, it says is the only legal and moral way to found a Family, to preserve mankind and avoid imperfections of the human being who are only able to obtain the perfection of the human race, through matrimony in a conjugal duality.
        Men and Women have the same rights, but it is important to observe their respective obligations.
        Both of you should have respect, fidelity, trust and assistance to one another and also tenderness and love, much love. Do not fight with one another, use your heads and your hearts to correct something wrong.
        Both of you should be aware of the great responsibility of being parents, because you should provide your children with attention, good example to follow during the rest of their lives.
        I now ask two questions to your witnesses.

        1.-Are _________________________ and _______________________ ¿Persons you know well?
        2. - ¿ And are there any objections for them to be joined in legal marriage in Mexico?



        ___________________ do you accept _________________________ as your

        beloved and wedded wife

        ____________________ do you accept ___________________________ as your beloved and wedded husband.



        _________________________ and _____________________in the name of the law and the society and with the authority from the Solidaridad Municipal here in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, M¨xico, I now declare you husband and wife.


        You may Kiss the bride.



        ¡ CONGRATULATIONS!

Several of my guests have emailed me recently to tell me to beware. Anyone else concerned?

            Uhh, no problemo here. This place is sooo safe feeling, you will feel like its Florida :)

              OMG – I’m starting to think this whole destination wedding thing was a bad idea. Is anyone having trouble with their travel agent? The whole reason why I choose Tulum was because it has an amazing kids club and I was told kids under 12 stay free (just pay for their air fare). Now my travel agent is telling me that this promotion ran out. I am going to have some very angry gusts- most of them already booked flights. Is anyone else running into this problem?

                Not good!!!! We chose this resort because of the kids club too, and the kids stay free promotion. Are you sure your agent didn't lock in this promotion in your contract. Most of my guests have already paid for their stays in full so I'm hoping there won't be trouble once we get there. I hope it all works out for all of us!!!

                  I just wanted to thank those of you that responded to my panic about the safety concerns in Mexico. After your responses and a little research of my own, I went to my family armed to defend my wedding location site. After a stressful week we are back on track and I can now continue my plans as usual! What a relief... Thanks again!!!

                    I was under the assumption that kids only stay free if you book during the specific promotion, which my TA told me can occur anytime, but usually happens just once a year. (And from my understanding, hasn't yet happened in 2010). Otherwise, you do have to pay for children to stay on the resort.
