    Michelle,

     

    I KNOW...  it takes some times to get some answer from Ana.  She told me it would be extra to have the diner on the terrasse, so we are going to have it in the Carrebean restaurant which will be beside the open area so almost outside...  We are having the reception on the terrasse which was an extra as well but I manage to negociate it a little bit lower for 3 hours...  If you need some decorations...  I will have quit a bit of Ivory ribbon and stuff...  I could leave it with Ana for you if she wants to do something with it.  I am bringing some candles too but thats about it.  I do have the welcome bags as well and our Favors are littles jars with a personalised sticker on it and a bow in Tule and we will pour some of our sand ceremony in it along with the beach sand as a souvenir...

     

    My dress is Ivory strapless and has some kind of folding till low waist and is bigger in the bottom...  hard to explain and I have a veil double layers with a lace border...  And my kids will be soo cute too

    For sure 60 some guess is a lot to do a lot of things, but at the same time the memories of the group will be incredible...!  Cant wait to meet you!  Got to go back to my studies

      Hi everyone,

       

      This is a question for all the brides that have already had their weddings, I am getting married at the OCT in April next year. Currently I have my ceremony booked for 5 pm, but I am worried that is a bit late? any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

        Hi Katie,

         

        I have a question for you...  Did you get any paper work done before the wedding?  Ana asked us to fill one form with our informations as well as our parents and witnesses informations but thats about it!?!  DO our witnesses need their birth certificat as well?  Is there anything else I should know or do by now...  we are at one month before leaving...  33 days!!!

         

        Thanks for all the informations you have shared!

         

        Nadia

          Hi Lise,

           

          I got married in PDC in February at 4:30 pm and actually wished i had done it at 5pm as the sun was still really bright at that time so i was squinting in my photo's alot.  We had pictures from 5pm-6pm and the sun started to set close to six so we got some gorgeous photo's.  You can find info here http://www.wundergro...hlyHistory.html  for the sunrise and sunset times that happened this past year to get an idea of what would work for you. 

           

          Good luck and happy planning!

           

          Jennifer

            Hi Michelle and Nadia,

             

            I remember the countdown craziness!  It does get a little hectic leading up to the trip but don't worry, once you get there your troubles will melt away!  As much as you are not loving this part...enjoy every minute of it, because your wedding will be over so fast!!!  It's crazy!  I miss being a bride

             

            Looking forward to possibly meeting you both and of course...MEXICO!!!  Countdown is on!

             

            Happy planning, ladies!

             

            Jennifer

              Hey Jennifer,

               

              So I am finally feeling pretty good, think I have got most of what i think i need together now...however, Ana our wedding panner has yet to email us our final check list as she said she would a week ago...i would have to say she has almost been the most stressful part of the whole thing...

               

              So is your husband excited for the trip! I can hardly wait!!! I am more then sure we will run into you there...it is not that big of a resort:)! YAY!!! Sorry remind me...are you flying out of torono?

               

              Any last minute suggestions on things we sould bring there?

               

              Thanks for being so up beat! Makes me that much more excited!

               

              Michelle

                Hi Michelle,

                 

                That sucks that Ana isn't quick to respond.  Hopefully she'll be much more helpful in person! 

                 

                Yes, my hubby is super excited too!  We weren't thinking we were going to get our Honeymoon this year, but I got an unexpected bonus from work and we already had this week booked off from work, together...so away we go!  The first thing we both said when I found out was "Mexico!" We are flying out of Vancouver with Air Transat on Nov.8th.

                 

                I'm glad I could assist in keeping things cheerful for ya!  It is going to be so awesome for you to have your wedding there!  We are bringing a floaty chair, that we took with us for our wedding and had fun with it in the pools.  Also, make sure you bring bug spray!  When we were at Turquesa in 2008 we brought some and were glad we did.  It just gets a little buggy at night.  Also, in case you are doing any excursions, bring some ziplock bags with you so you can pack some food with you, from the buffet.  We saw people doing that last time we were there and I thought that was clever.  And of course, something to cover up with at night when it gets chilly.  I'm not sure if you've been to Mexico or to the Resort before, so you might already know all this.  If I think of anything else, wedding related, I will let you know!

                    Michelle...  if Ana finally send you the final check list could you forward it to me?  I finaly finish my 5 books... after some months...  just need to study for the next week and 1/2 and do my exams and I will be feeling so much bether!

                     

                    I think I am pretty much ready for the trip and wedding...  bought all we needs at the drugstore and start organizing a little bit of packing.  I have so much to bring because of the welcome bag but with 2 kids it allow me 2 extra luggage.
