No, the rock pics were taken at Playacar during my TTD session. RPLA has beautiful rocks on the beach you can stand on to take pics. I really wanted to take my wedding pics there, but the tide was high and there was no way of getting to them. The year before when I first went, the tide wasn't as high and very easy to stand on, so you shouldn't have a problem taking pics in your dress there as long as the water isn't covering them.

Hi! We are getting married in May at 2:00 in the Gasebo. What time did you get married? I have been reading about the sun being lost behind the building and was concerned that I would not have sun at the gasebo at this time.

 

Can you let me know what time your wedding was at? Or if at 2:00 would be enough sunlight?

Thanks

I'm not sure what the sunlight would be around 2 during May. I've only been to Cancun around August/September and there is plenty of sunshine at 2:00. I got married at 5:00 and there was plenty of light during that time at the gazebo.

Hi sorry, some more questions, I was just wondering about what you did for music during the ceremony, can you bring your own cd, how many songs can you have and when do they play them? Sorry just starting to think of songs now and struggling to decide

I didn't use the music they offered (which was a CD) because we hired the mariachi to play. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to bring your own CD to use since they would already be using a CD player if you used their music. You can probably only get one song in as you're walking down the aisle and one more as you walk down together as husband and wife. We had more than two songs though because we had the mariachi playing for 15 minutes before the ceremony started. To be honest, I was so nervous I don't even remember hearing the mariachi play. I had no idea what the song I walked down to until I saw my wedding video. So, try not to stress about the music too much wink.gif I know, I know, easier said than done!

Mrs Martin - Thanks for your advice, I got myself into a bit of a flap when looking at threads to see what others were walking down the aisle too, I see that everyone has songs for practically every part of the ceremony with ipods and speakers! Thats a relief as now back to the original dilema of which song to choose. Thanks again
