    Hi All,
    I just booked my wedding week, so I too am a November 2009 Bride! We're going to the Grand Palladium Colonial from November 15-22, but the wedding date is still to be confirmed. We're going to spend a second honeymoon week at a different resort but haven't decided on that yet - maybe the EDR?
    Great thread!

    Good luck in all your planning everyone!

        Welcome & congrats! I'm travelling the exact same week! We are getting married at the Azul Sensatori on the 20th. and honeymooning the second week at the EDR as well! We'll have to have a margarita to celebrate our new-found wedded status!

          Hi beachbride, are you still looking to share your photographer? We might be interested...I sent you a PM.
          If we do end up at the EDR, we'll totally have to have a margarita!

            Hi ladies!

            I'm just back from 2 weeks in Vietnam/Thailand (a great place for Honeymooning fyi) and am catching up on the forum. It was kind of nice to not do anything wedding related for 2 whole weeks! However, we've officially moved our wedding from the Azul Fives to the Sensatori on November 21st - yea, finally done with that at least.

            Beachbride2009 and EDRbride2009 - our colors are turquoise and chocolate brown too. Maybe I can join you in decor coordination? We're planning to arrive at the Sensatori on Nov. 16th.

              Hey leannebv...I didn't get a PM from you, but yes, he is interested in working another wedding if possible!

              Hoosier fan...this would work out great! We arrive at AS on the 15th, wedding is on the 20th, yours is the 21st, then EDRBride is the 26th!

              So far I am planning turquoise Chinese lanterns for the reception tables, plus small lanterns on the little tables in the "lounge" area between the dance area and the dinner area. I priced out making chair bows but it didn't really work out to be any better than renting them. I'm also thinking about going to Walmart and buying tiki torches there instead of renting them for the ridiculous price they charge so we could always share costs on that too?

              Keep in touch you two!

                Hey ladies!

                This is great! We will definitely all have to keep in touch. And since it looks like there will be a few of us at EDR at the same time, we'll have to make sure we get together for a margarita or two!

                I haven't made a lot of progress in the decorations area yet, but I will keep you updated.

                Thanks, and keep in touch!!!

                  I'm so excited, I'm staying there next week (at EDR)! I'm going to pick what room cate for our honeymoon, but we're leaning towards the infinity pool casita...it looks pretty nice! I'll take lots of photos while there and share when I get back!

                    So I've seen some recent posts in other forums about the weather in November.....anyone been to Mayan Riviera in November that can tell me from experience what the weather was like?

                      I've heard the weather in November is beautiful - it is the end of hurricane season, though, which likely means a higher chance of scattered rain showers during the day. The one thing I'd recommend though is checking the sunset schedule - the sun sets around 5-5:30pm during November and then it can get chilly/windy, so if you're planning an outdoor ceremony and you want pictures afterward, you may want to schedule your ceremony for mid-afternoon vs. evening (just a lesson I learned in my planning!). Hope that helps!
