Thanks for all the information you have all provided- you have helped a ton! We are hoping to set our date (once I hear back from Yamina) for April 2010.
    I have a million questions. I'll start with a couple of basic ones- what is everyone doing about the food at the reception-- I don't really like the 'gold' or 'silver' choices- can you change them out for other options? What about vegetarians? What if you have more than 20 guests?
    Also has anyone used destinationweddings.com?
    Thanks!

    I'm glad you chose EPM! I, as well as all the brides on this thread, think you made a great choice =0)

    I too was not happy with the gold or silver choices because I have a lot of picky eaters in my group and 3 vegans. The resort is letting me have my guests pick from 2 options - roulades of beef or salmon. They also forwarded me a vegetariam menu for the vegans - I chose the mushroom risotto! Mmmmmm!

    Lauren answered your question about the guests - all guests over 20 is an additional $45 which includes cocktail hour, dinner and wedding cake.

      Hey I forgot to tell you girls that I had my BD shoot about a week ago. It was soooo much fun and I can't wait until he gets the book! He is totally going to freak out. So if you are thinking about it I strongly reccommend you do them. I wanted to post the link to the gallery but I have a few nude shots so I don't want the whole world seeing my assets! ; )

        Sounds cool girl! thats the one thing I haven't gotten the courage to do. So I don't see it happening at this point. I had my bridal shower last Sunday and got some really cute stuff, but I think thats the only way he's gonna get to see it, I dont think I have the guts to put it in a book.

              Mesita, You go girl with your BD shoot. I bet you looked amazing! Your fiance is going to be stoked when he sees the pictures!

              I am in the same boat as Lauren - haven't gotten up the nerve to do it. Such a great gift though!

                I leave for Mexico on the 17th. So we will only be there one day before...it was going to be 2 days the first time but at this point I'm just like whatever. Yamina still hasnt sent me the final run down of everything that I have selected but I'm really tryng not to stress. I keep breaking out in hives and I don't know if it's stress or if I've developed an allergy to something.

                My guests have not rebooked. Some people are still afraid and for others the new date did not work. So my parents are going, supposedly his mom, my photog and his wife and maybe 2 of my friends. So I was totally bummed at first but I still plan to have a good time. Never expected to have a wedding with no wedding guests, bridesmaids, or a best man! Maybe we'll make friends at the resort and invite them! I still want to have a mini reception afterwards with music and dancing so I'm hoping it will still be fun. A little upset that when I look back on my pics no one will be in them : (

                We are having a BBQ on the 4th of July when we get back to celebrate with everyone else.
