    Don't Panic!!! I am sure your day will be so beautiful even with the current stress. From what I have been told the issues in Mexico are in Northern Mexico not anywhere near our resort. US and Canada have issued travel warnings for that area only. I have full faith that our resort is safe. You really only can get into trouble if you go off the resort to non-touristy areas anyways. I have 6 months to go and am just in full planning mode right now and I can just imagine I will be in the same state of mind when mine is only one month away.

      Hello Ladies! I've been off this forum for a bit but really need to get myself back in gear. Time does fly!!!! I'm trying to sort out my 'to do' list for all the things we have to do for the wedding. S_Katrese I'm sure you have done more than you think. And as for the whole Mexico thing I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that your guests stick with it.

The resort is great but I would like to be able to add some unique things...linens, chairs, shell name cards etc. Any suggestions? I'm getting so close to my date and afraid I'm going to have to go with the resort options only..
        Thanks....nervous bride to be...
        THope definitely ask Yamina as well. She can also recommend outside vendors (even though they may be partners of the resort), because at the end of the day it may be easier for those vendors to work with the resort, given their connections, versus those that are not connected to the resort.

          Hi everyone, I am new to this website as well! I am working on getting my date coordinated with Yamina, but it should be mid-October! The photographer that she referred me to as the on-site photog is Juan Navarro - does anyone have any experience with him or know anything about bringing in outside photogs? I am really concerned about having quality pictures since there will only be a few guests there. (and am a designer so am very visual!).
          Thanks!!

              What number do you use to talk to Yamina, and did you use a calling card?

                Hi Ladies!!!
                We're back from the wedding and honeymoon and everything was PERFECT!!! I mean it! I had gotten SO stressed for the month or so before we left for EPM! I just didn't think I had done enough to prepare, knew I'd get down there and realize I forgot something super important or that Yamina would somehow let me down... NONE of that happened!!! The week and the actual wedding day were BEYOND PERFECT!!! None of you have anything to worry about... I assure you! Once you get there, Yamina is a dream to work with! She makes sure that you're happy with everything and that you feel comfortable with all decisions made, etc. She also wants to bug you as little as possible so that you can enjoy being on vacation with your family and friends!
                I still have no idea how to add pictures, etc. on to my posts, so I apologize for that, but I can add a link to my photographer's website when they let me know that my pictures are ready for viewing!
                Just a few details about my wedding...
                We ended up having 44 total (including my now husband and I) people come for the wedding. We wanted to have a gathering the night before (even though we weren't doing a true "Rehearsal"), so we had a "Welcome Dinner" on the Spice Terrace the night before the wedding. It was AWESOME! Honestly, this was the thing I was most worried about... there were just so many unknowns. However, Yamina pulled it all together and it was a complete success!!! We brought down a slideshow to show everyone and Yamina arranged for everything for that. The decor, centerpieces, food, drinks, service, etc. were just incredible!!!
                I had my hair and make-up done in the spa and Myra (that's not how she spells it, I just blanked on that) was AWESOME! She spent SO much time making sure that it was just perfect! SO much better than I imagined!!! We brought down our own photographers since we had worked with them and trusted them completely! Yamina and the resort were great working with them as well! The ceremony was on the beach and was just beautiful! Our cocktail hour was at the X-Lounge on the beach and we used the mariachi band... HUGE hit! They put on quite a show!!! Our reception was just so much more perfect than I EVER could have imagined!!! The dinner was SOOO good... SOOO good! And, the service was second to none! Edgar managed our reception and couldn't have been better!!! He's just so great! : ) Yamina had the decorations and centerpieces even better than the pictures I sent her... it was beautiful! We used DJ Doremixx and I understand from Yamina that they are no longer accepting outside vendors for the DJ's, but he was beyond incredible!!! We were SO sad when the reception ended!!! It was just literally perfect!
                Please let me know if anyone has questions or anything b/c I know it can get stressful not knowing what to expect, etc. Also, like I said, once my photographers puts up our pictures, I'll include a link so that you guys can view those as well!
                Good luck with all of the planning and don't stress! It will be fantastic! : )
                Rebecca and Clay

                  Congrats Rebecca!!!! Well everyone says once you get there Yamina really helps which is my biggest worry since I can only plan so much from here. Good to hear about your hair and makeup as I am going that way as well. I can't wait to see your pics for sure!!
