        It is a fabulous dress, you have GREAT taste! I had a sneaking suspicion that it was a Maggie, glad I was right! Congrats again!!

          oh wow! awesome pictures...You looked beautiful! Thank you sooo much for the great review. You have no idea how much this helps me! Were getting married there next October and i was a little worried about the weather but everything looked perfect in your pictures! I loved your TTD. Did you hire an outside photographer for them? I definately want to do some but not sure if i should hire someone outside (and pay for them to stay at the resort) or have the resort photographer take them the following day.

            Now that I look back, I would have just hired the photographer from the resort (Carlos ). He did such an amazing job capturing the best and most important moments! (my photographer disapointed me. and i flew him in!) Thank god for the free pics from the Riu!
            So I would recommend you hire him for the trash the dress.
            Plus he is from there, and im sure he knows nice beaches around the area.Let me know if you want his contact info. Maybe you can e-mail him and get an idea of how much he will charge.

                Oh, and there is a beautiful public beach next to Tulum Where you CAN take pics. Just get there very early in the morning, so you dont get hella people in your pics (im talking about being there around 7:30 - 8 A.m. for best results.
                Its called Playa Paraiso. Its a 5 min. ride away from Tulum, so you get that beautiful White powder sugar sand, and turquoise blue water!

                    I bet! How many people are you planning on attending?
                    We had 52 including us, and it was a blast. Everywhere you go, you run into people and go do excursions w/ them. It's always funner in large numbers!

                      What is the name of your dress. I know it's by Maggie Sottero, but I'm looking on the site and don't see ANY like that one. I really like the way it looks in your pictures. Very flow-e!
