    Hey Mesita, thank you so much for the response!
    I saw a picture of lumanire bags used to form an aisle...(instead of a runner) and I thought..ok if I dont have any decor for the gazebo, Im going to go with that because though its not "flashy" it will give it some color and be decorative enough..something simple but nice.
    I was already pricing them and trying to see if I can find colored ones..now I may not even have to if they include the stones and lanterns :)

    I can not believe they are going to charge that much for rosepetals!!!!! please let me know..that is completely insane!

    I cant wait to hear your feedback. I really hope that you have a picture perfect wedding..you deserve it!

      5 DAYS UNTIL MESITA'S, SWINE FLU FREE WEDDING!

      get this- im a school teacher and we have 2 kids out with the flu and not allowed to return back to school for 7days. Why should I worry about Swine Flu in Mexico. I need to worry about Swine Flu in NJ specifically, my classroom :}

        Thanks everyone for all your kind comments! I can't wait to get there! We aren't leaving until Wednesday which is 1 day before the wedding. Crazy right?! I'm not worried though everything will be just fine!

        I wanted to do a planning thread but I haven't done a good job with taking pics and everything is all packed now!

        Lauren that is crazy about the kids at your school. Can you believe that I still have a wedding guest who is still on the fence about going because of the swine flu? I told her to just stay a home...no time for more stress.

        I still haven't figured out my hair...Lauren are you getting it styled at the resort??

          Mesita -

          I hope you have a wonderful wedding experience that turns out to be everything you ever dreamed of.

          I'm sure it is disappointing that most of your guests did not rebook. You just have to think about what a great time you are going to have and how special this once in a lifetime experience is going to be. Not one guest could ever feel the same way you and your fiance are going to feel when you are up there saying your vows making lifetime promises to one another.

          Your wedding is the start of a wonderful marriage and life adventure with your new partner!

          Good luck! XOXO

            Thank you for offering! Ok here goes...

            I plan on purchasing the gold package...I know some decor is included for the ceremony but I would need to know what in order to know what I have to prepare for.
            I planned on using the gazebo, so I dont know if I need a runner for the little foot path over the pool or not? If I change my mind and want to get married on the beach, do they provide an arch?
            This was a long shot question but I had to ask because it would kill me not to know..lol
            You know on the website it shows a young couple in the gazebo and its all decorated with lanterns, and stones..do you think they can provide that set up as part of the package? (like the extra decor they offer in the gold package)

            ***goodness now that Im reading this back Im thinking shes probably so irritated at the questions..shes just ignoring me..lol***

            IF any of you ladies can help out with the answers I really would appreciate it.
            Oh one more..lol..I planned on purchasing a specific tequila as favors..I can order them online but they are pretty expensive (i want the large bottles) and I am figuring about 15-20 bottles...for those that might have done a site visit..will it be easy (and cheaper!) for me to just wait to purchase the tequila once I arrive and just prepare them at the resort with favor tags? or am I taking a risk by waiting?

            Thanks again!
            TEQUILA - if you go to Mexico a few days before the wedding, I highly suggest picking up the bottles yourself. I was going to have the resort get them for me but I do not want to pay them the mark up.

            I have not been to the resort but I have been to Cancun and going to Cancun or Isla Mujeres is by far a better option then to bringing them from home or buying them from EPM.

              Thanks Jennifer!!! I appreciate it. I was told the same by a girlfriend of mine, but I'm so unsure of waiting till we get there to purchase the tequila. I have specific one I am looking for "pomegrante tequila"..but I think Im just going to have to wing it when I get there...

              Lauren-- Thats exactly how I feel about it. Do you teach in Elizabeth?
              My girlfriends coworker is the parent of a student in Elizabeth who was diagnosed with it. Its everywhere....and from what I understand the U.S. more than doubles the cases in Mexico.
              Anyway hope you ladies are enjoying the weekend!

              TTYl!

                    Hey Girls! Sorry I haven't been on in a while.. I wanted to let you guys know if you call the 1.800 number associated with Excellence resorts in general, they will connect you (for free) to Yamina's supervisor at EPM.

                    Just a note..I was waiting about 2 weeks for a list of questions to get answered, and after i was hung up on for the third time (for an expensive call mind you) I tried this.....I got answers to 20 plus questions (along w/8 or 9 attachments) the next day.... :)

                      GREAT info! I actually emailed Yamina and Nayeli's boss tonight advising them that the wedding coordinators should get their own 800 number - a 15 minute conversation can take 15 emails back and forth over a few weeks. Good to know I can call the 800 number and get transferred!

                      I have a situation now in which the time of 5pm was recommended to me by Nayeli for my wedding and I come to find out that the sun sets at 5:07pm. Why would I want a beach wedding in the dark?!?!?! I asked to change my wedding to 4pm but they have another wedding booked at 3pm! Why on earth are they booking weddings so close together? That situation is exactly what I was trying to avoid after attending a wedding at Couples Swept Away where the wedding we went to was at 4pm and by 4:30 the resort staff was pushing us out of the way to get ready for the next wedding.

                      Needless to say, I am MAD!
