    I booked my wedding there for May 28, 2010. I am so excited!

    Still waiting to hear back from our TA about package prices, but I am looking at Expedia for an idea of costs, and it seems that it's going to be affordable for our guests.

      I need some advice! I'm booked in at the OGX for our February 2010 wedding. Right now, I'm struggling with bridesmaids' attire. I wanted to do things pretty casual, and at first told my bridesmaids they could wear whatever dress they wanted, just "think beachy". However, my bridesmaids now would like to match somewhat (they think this would look better in the pictures, which I tend to agree with). My dilemma is that I have two bridesmaids in Canada, and one living in the U.S., so it is difficult to find designers and/or brands that are available in both countries.
      Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

        I'm totally in love with the Melissa Sweet Bridesmaid dresses - but they're on the pricier side. But you can find them in both Canada and the states.
        Good luck!

            Good idea MexicoBride10! We should start a list of everyone's date. It'll be helpful to get feedback once brides start having their weddings. I'll start, and then use the quote function to add your date.

              Does anyone have feedback/experience on the spa there for hair and makeup? Not sure if I want to use them or go to PDC?

                I was feeling unsure about the spa at the resort for hair and makeup so I searched the forum and alot of people recommended this woman named Doranna. Her website is dorannahairstylist.com

                I heard she is amazing. She is a little pricey but its our wedding and will not risk my hair not looking the way i want.

                Good luck
