    My wedding is also scheduled for 3pm.. however mine is in Nov so I think mine will be just right temp wise... guess I'll find out! Thats cool I too am ordering silk hand fans as my favours for the wedding and then the AHR. They are cool we are personalizing them with our name and date on the side of the fan.. and they come in red which is one of my colors!!! So excited about that!

    Prairiegirl I am so excited for you!! I can't wait to see pics... and I will let edssbride bombarde you this time... then I can bombard her when its closer to my time!!! LOL

      About fans... get on it right away.. I left this part to the last minute.. can not find anything in here.. I figured Walmart might have something, or the Dollarstore or Michaels.. NOTHING! (maybe cause I am looking for fans in the dead of winter?? hmm maybe.. lol) I should have ordered them online... I wanted just a plain rafia fan and was gonna put a ribbon on the handle.. but nothing to be found!!

      I am hoping to find something in Playa the days before, otherwise.. everyone will be dying in the heat...

      3pm wedding... hmmm.. did everyone pick that time?? I actually tried to get earlier in the day.. and they told me 3pm was the only time... probably to allow THEM more time in the days... oh well.. no biggie..

      Bridesmaids?? nope not having any.. we're just a small group his parent, my parents, his cousin (and wife), my cousin (and husband). Our parents are our wintesses..

      two more days of work... and I am out of here... although I guess I am not working all that hard right now.. am I??

        thats so funny... cause we are so slow in our office right now that I am basically planning my wedding all day!!! Maybe not a good thing to admit... ah well... non of my employers or co-workers are on here so how will they know??

        About the fans I found 2 great websites actually that carry the exact same fans and such except one of the sites has free shipping over 100 which my order would be and cheaper fans.. but literally the same.. I have asked the other company if they can price quote and they have yet to get back to me. I have found some great Canadian websites for raffia fans.. cause originally thats what I wanted to go with... if you want them I will look them up and post them for you Let me know..

        You know sometimes smaller is better... my wedding party.. wasn't really going to be a wedding party.. like non formal titles or anything... but turns out that they basically are.. so I'm happy with that too.. so exciting only 2 days of work left!!! YAY!! :)

          Tracy, I would love your info on the fans! Particularly ones that are affordable to ship to canada! I need less than 50, so i guess i would need one with a smaller limit?

          Thanks so much! FYI my name is Carolyn :-)

            Carolyn! Good to know names instead of screen names! So here are those 2 websites that I have found... the first one has a more unchangable amount of min orders and the second one is more flexible with how many you can order as mins... which is why I think I will go with the second company rather than the first... here they are:

            Handmade Raffia Fans BULK [Raffia Wedding Fans Bulk Cheap] : Wholesale Wedding Supplies, Discount Wedding Favors, Party Favors, and Bulk Event Supplies

            Hand Fans, Kimonos, Chinese & Japanese Wedding Favors

            let me know if these help.. cause I have researched a lot of other sites too I can list off for various other things too!!

              Oh and when I posted free shipping over 100 I meant in dollars... The minimum order on the second website is like 6.... just to clarify my earlier comment

                Hello ladies! I can't believe how soon everyone's weddings are!!! Carolyn, you must be so excited! I actually bought the fans from the first link. We ordered extra fans because some aren't perfect and we needed some extras so that we could pick the best looking fans. I bought ribbon from Fabricland and wrapped them around the bottom of the fan. I also designed custom tags using caricatures of us that I designed on Vistaprint. They are pretty fun!

                I did have the fans shipped to a BM in the US, it was easy but obviously not for everyone!

                Thanks for all of your notes on the planning, pier etc! We noticed that all the Karisma prices jumped in the last week so we would caution anyone getting married later to take screen shots of all the items on the Lomas site so that you can lock in the best prices! (Beach Weddings, Anniversaries and Honeymoons in the Riviera Maya) OUr bouquets just jumped in price (50 to 90) as well as our photographer (978 - 2200). It's crazy!

                Also, negotiate with your photog before you contact Lomas. That way you will get a better rate and you are giving more money to the photog and less to Lomas....which is the way it should be!

                Also, I'm a bit anal and like ot make a travel document for every resort I go to in order to give to all my guests so that they are prepaered. I'll upload that for you guys to check out!

                    Here is my nerdy list with all the major details you need to know about the resort. I sent this out to my guests, will leave a copy with our at home emergency contact and will also print it out so I have on hand at the resort.

                    It's always nice to know what time breakfast is over - or when lunch starts or exactly what is and isn't included! Hope this helps : )

                      Carolyn.. thanks for the word document.. printed it off and ready to go... saved me some of the work...

                      I have to admit.. I am REALLY jealous about you guys all getting fans... my poor guests will just need to drink more.. haha

                      Has anyone asked how long the ceremony is?? hopefully it's over in 20mins... I'm hoping

                      OK.. my last day of work... two days till we leave.. 8 days till the wedding...

                      Life is good....

                      (p.s. my name is Nicky..)
