I'm stressing about the seating charts. I'm so frustrated with the lack of communication. I still haven't heard confirmation back from Rocio about the number of people sitting at each table, so I've done a mock up of 8-10 at each table with a head table. I'm going to be bringing my laptop with me so if I need to make changes, I will. Don't know how I'll print it out... Maybe go into the lobby and email?
Playlist - my little sister is in charge of the ceremony music. I gave her a list of 3 songs for the ceremony (plus some extras - just in case)
A good friend of ours has been putting together the music for the reception. We gave him the list of our first song, dance with my dad, FI's with FMIL.
LadiesMens night - we are doing a big group excursion to Coco Bongo in Cancun.
Carseats - not sure! No young children are coming with us.
Transfers - Air Transat is providing the transportation. Usually the big carriers do. Do you have a TA? That's something he/she should know.
Packing - this has been by far the most challenging part! LOL. We are doing OOT bags for 68 people so we are bringing down a TON of stuff. Air Transat allows a wedding dress to be carried on for free. I'm sure your carrier does too. I have been able to fit all of my stuff into one giant suitcase, and my FI has as well. He is carrying on his suit. I have borrowed 8 carry ons for extras - all favours (maracas) and OOT bag stuff. You should be able to check out your weight limits, etc, online.
Ceremony - we aren't doing a sand ceremony (i don't think...). You will need to bring your passport and a copy of your long form birth certificate, which needs to be ordered from the government.
We leave on Saturday at 3 am. Freaking out! I'll be able to tell you all about it when we get back, JND

How do you organize the playlist? Did you have/plan to have specific songs for first dance, etc? If yes, how did you ensure that they came on at right time?
Ladies/Men's night - did you have one? what did you do?
Children - do any of you know if the resort has cribs... if we need to have a carseat?
Travel - how did your group get to/from resort? How long does it take? How did your dress do as a carry on?
Packing - how much did you pack? How many bathing suits, etc? What did you pack that you found essential?
Ceremony - did you/do you plan on having a sand ceremony or anything that you needed to plan or take with you before going?
Manda, you must be getting SO excited!!! I'm getting stressed now that we're so close... I can't wait to hear about yours!
Any other general info that might help me feel at ease?
