Your wedding will be beautifl and intimate! The beach is beautiful and you will love it.
I am "carrying" my dress on the plane. I've heard other brides say this is the way to do it. And, most airlines will hang your dress for you in a special closet. There is NO way I would ship it...not only because it could get lost, but it could also get mishandled and damaged. I would def bring it as a carry on if I were you.
Our travel agent has arranged transportation to and from for us. She has been a breeze to work with too.
When we were in Mexico last year, we did some exscursions at Xcaret, which was about an hour and a half away. It is a park with plenty of activites. We snorkeled the cenotes (BEAUTIFUL), saw some ruins, and swam with the dolphins (highly recommended!). It was quite expensive, but fun! You can also zip line there too.
We did not do any activities at EPM, we just mainly hung out by the pool and drank pina colodas all day and soaked up the sun! But, there are many activities to do there. You can do yoga on the beach, volleyball, kayaking, etc.
I am emailing Nayeli today to see what needs to be done as far as planning goes. And, I too am starting to feel like a bride too--I am getting excited- it will be here before we know it!

We are getting married at 3pm on the beach - it will just be the two of us, my parents and his parents. Our vision is to have a small (very small in our case) and intimate wedding. We'll be throwing a big party once we get back to the states. I think that is great you're having 80 people come to your wedding! If my fiance and I had done more planning in advance (maybe if we started a year or more ago), we would have definitely decided to invite more people.
That's good to know that they use MAC; it gives me something to work with so I can start planning what look I want to go for. :-) Hair half-up sounds like a great idea!
Are you going to bring your dress on the plane with you or are you going to ship it? I'm not sure what to do.
Are you doing any excusions while you are there? I'm tempted to just be a 'hermit' and soak up all the activities and fun there is at the resort.
We definitely have NOT finalized everything yet. Time has flown by and all of a sudden, we were less than 100 days away! I emailed Nayeli this morning to see where we are with the planning and what else we need to do.
I'm not sure if you've arranged transportation to/from the airport, but we are using Four Seasons (referred to us by EPM). They have been very pleasant, quick and easy to work with.
I'm sure we will definitely get to meet once we are there. :-)
Up until a week or so ago, I haven't really felt like a 'bride' but holy cow - I sure do now and am super excited!!!
