    Thanks Ally! I know... I think I'm at the numb stage, I have so much anxiety! It is literally right around the corner!! My Fiance started a time line countdown on facebook....he's super excited and not stressed at all...not fair! :)  

    How is everybody holding up?? 

    I heard from Nayeli last Wednesday with some answers, but of course there are more questions so I'm waiting again. Hopefully by this weekend! (I'm staying optimistic!)

      So great to hear from another bride! I'm so glad everything worked out prefectly!!

      I used the hair and makeup from the resort and it was awesome! I just brought in photos of what I wanted and she did an amazing job. I was a little nervous about it all and did not do a trial run, but everything was perfect. My hair is long and I knew my fiance (now husband) wanted to see me with my hair down and curly. I had my laptop and showed the lady a photo from my Pinterest collection of hair styles the moment just before she started. It worked perfectly. 

       

      We really wanted to do a beach wedding, but when it came down to it the gazebo was the winner. It was less windy, we could actually hear each other talking and everything about the gazebo was great! We used the curtains, a runner with roses, the rocks/candles and rented tiffany chairs. It was beautiful. We did ask that the fountains be turned off because even though they were beautiful they were very loud. N. had them turned back on after the ceremony ended. We also requested that champagne be waiting for us and our guests right after the ceremony so we could hang out in the gazebo, have a toast and chat before heading to the beach for group photos. N. had everything timed out perfectly. The X-lounge was perfect for the cocktail hour. We had a Bose system following us around with music that we picked and it really set the mood. It was definately loud enough. The reception was supposed to be at the Spice Terrace, but with an 80% chance of rain they moved it to Touscana restaurant on the terrece. They were able to put up my paper lanterns which looked awesome!! The waitstaff here are the most amazing that we have ever had. When we would think of something that we needed they would already be there with it. I would definately do Touscana Terrece for the reception just for the service they provided. They are also the same servers that provide the breakfast and lunch buffet. LOVE them! Our cake was cute, and I did make a few changes to it before everyone saw it - like turing the cake topper around to a prettier side of the cake and adding some flowers from our centerpieces and moving the plates and cake cutting knife off to the side for photos. It was really amazing and N. and the staff was great. 

       

      I actually only saw N. three times, once for our initial meeting, once before I was going to walk down the aisle and at the end of our ceremony waiting with the servers who had the champagne. She was really sweet and always made sure that someone was taking care of us and was a point person for whatever we needed at each of the different locations.

       

      Basically if you think of it, they will bring it to you. Everything is so perfect.

            MsBlissMpls  - Congratulations! I am so happy that everything went perfectly! Glad to hear they put you on the Toscana terrace if there's a chance of rain. Was curious what they do for that...

            Can't wait to see some pics!!! Enjoy the rest of your stay!

             

            We will be there in 10 days!!!

             

            stefkva- Hope you have a beautiful wedding! Sounds like there is nothing to worry about(which makes me feel good too!)

              Question for you ladies that already went...did you have any problems with the items you brought in the airport?

              I am starting to get concerned about my OOT bag items and the starfish I am bringing. Should I just have them in 1 suitcase or divide them up so it doesn't look as "suspicious"?

                Question for past brides...what is the night life like? I'm bringing a group of about 60-70 people with a mixture of couples and singles. Majority of them are party people! LOL

                 

                So I want to make sure they resort has enough for them to do at night and doesn't shut down at like 11pm each night.

                  I am so excited and so overwhelmed right now! We are leaving for EPM in 6 days!!!! Our wedding is in 9!!! I haven't heard back from N yet. I am hoping that I will at least get my wedding planner sent to me before we leave. I don't want any surprises when it comes to costs. I am a little concerned about the sky lanterns that we are taking. We are going to check them, I just don't want them to take them away! That is what I am looking forward to the most! (besides getting a new husband! haha)

                  I have decided to try to not stress over anything from here on out because the past two brides have been kind enough to reassure us! At the end of the day, I am marrying my best friend and flowers, cake and place settings won't matter. :)

                   

                  Good luck to all the upcoming new brides!

                    I went here last April with my MOH to check out the resort. It is more of a laid back "romantic" resort. They have a night club, but I doubt you can fit that many people in there. If I remember right, it closes at 1am. My MOH and I love night life, but you won't find too much of that here.

                      I agree. I've been to EPM and ERC, and most night entertainment ends by 11pm, and Allegra disco bar opens then, but I have not checked it out. This resort is definitely more on the quiet side. If you want to go out to a club, I would recommend going to Cancun area. When is your wedding?
