            Thanks everyone for all the wonderful wishes and compliments. I truly loved my wedding experience but again it would not have been so wonderful without all the help and advice I received from this forum.

            MY WORDS OF ADVICE I forgot to add:

            1) Soak in every moment, trust me the moment passes you by so quickly, it's honestly a little depressing, lol. So enjoy, enjoy, enjoy and don't sweat the small stuff. Believe me you wont even care once your day has come!

            2) Don't forget to bring receipts for all the stuff you lug over. We had 10 bags full of wedding stuff, and they did stop us to check everything. Once we pulled out receipts their entire tone changed and they passed us through with smiles and well wishes!

            3) If you are sad about some people not making it, let it go. Once you're there with all those who did make the trip you won't even think about it. Enjoy those who are there with you -- this is your day, be greedy, do what you want, and be happy!

            I have so much more advice but can't think of it at the moment, but will make sure to add in my full review!!!

            OMG girl you gotta check out Akumal ~ I swear it is heaven for anyone who loves the beach and that small town feel! One dirt road in and out of the town, and the main source of transportation are bikes and golf carts ~ it's fabulous!! As for "my private villa" Good Lord, I wish
            Welcome back MarieSam and congrats!! Everything looked and sounded completely amazing, I am so glad your day was everything you hoped for and more! You look breath-taking I might add and your daughter is beautiful. I have been dying to see your pics and to read your review, can't wait!!!
            YAY woman!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!
            I'm so excited you are back!!! You were BEAUTIFUL, just as expected!!!!
            I can't wait for your review and more pics!!! Oh and your mom LOVE HER!!!! She is soooo cute!
            Ahhh Jac I am so excited for you my Akumal bride! Tommy and I are already planning a return visit to Akumal in the coming year ~ you are going to have such a fabulous time there. I missed it as soon as we moved to the Grand Mayan the second week -- we even went back three times because it was so wonderful, lol. PS I am now going to live vicariously through you till you head south for your own wedding!!!

              Congratulations! You and your daughter look so much alike... beautiful pics!
              How did you come up with your first dance? I love that idea and its the next big decision my FI and have to agree on =)
              Hehehe, well Tommy, my daughter and I actually made our music mix about 2 months ago. But we honestly didn't start choreographing it until about 3 days before the wedding -- yes while we were already in Mexico!!! We did it while everyone was asleep and really didn't practice but it was so so much fun!! We made the routine easy but fun. I promise to post video of it once I get it from our videographer!

              I've been checking everyday, anxiously awaiting your review! Your enthusiasm during your description of your trip has me wishing I had been there and now I find myself pining away for the day I will visit Akumal (which, yes, is now an absolute MUST!) That pic of the beach? I mean, come on -- gorgeous, right!?! Truly took my breath away...looked too perfect to be real!
              Christie you are too kind
              Was that your villa with the pool.. damn?! I think I chose the wrong destination!!!!!
              Yep that was the villa with the pool -- I will post more pics on this amazing house once I get em edited. It truly is a fabulous spot for vacationing or even hosting a wedding or welcome dinner.

              And have no doubts hun, your location is just as beautiful. I'm confident you will have the wedding of your dreams as well!!!
