      Oh yeah, I've seen every thread relative to the Riu Palace or anywhere in the Riviera Maya. I'm totally addicted to this site!

      We thought we were going to have between 80-100 people at first (we actually did a little survey of friends and relatives before we commited to a DW), but people are starting to get a little grumpy about the cost and having to take off work, kids out of school, etc. So, who knows what our final count will be. It would be funny if it did end up being 100 people, the whole resort would be taken up with our wedding guests.

      We chose the gazebo after alot of debate. We originally wanted the beach (it just seemed silly to go all the way to Mexico and not get married on the beach), but ended up going with the gazebo because it seemed more private and less windy.

      How's your planning coming? I've got everything done already - thanks to these boards!

        All your planning done? I feel like I am just starting! Did you do save the dates? If so, did you do your own, or did you go through a company? My FI and I are just getting around to finding someone to take a picture for us to put on it!
        I've started brain storming about OOT bags, dresses, etc., but haven't bought a single thing yet!
        Did you get your wedding dress? Do you love it? Did you go beach casual, or classic?

        Oh! One more question... are you going to have a photographer? I am thinking about bringing one from the outside- but someone who lives in Playa Del Carmen area.

        Okay- tons of questoins, sorry!

          Ok, you got me, we aren't totally done. We have everything mapped out though. There's not alot we can do until things get closer and we know how many people will be coming. We did send our save the dates out last week. We just made them on vistaprint. Here's some pics...

          I have gone shopping for dresses a few times, and can't really find anything in the stores I love. I found one online that I love, and am paying for a local shop to get one in for a week so I can try it on. Here it is...

          I have decided that I'm bringing a local photographer with us. She's hired me to do makeup at some of her recent shoots, and I love her work. She used to just do just families, maternity, and babies, but she's trying to branch out. She's never done a destination wedding, but I really trust her. She'll be doing my boudoir photos too. Here's her website...

          Let me know if you would be interested in using her, since she'll be at the resort already.

          Let me know if you have anymore questions!
