This really sucks. I am so freaking tired of not being able to do this or having to buy something for a high price. Oh well I guess it made my life easier. I guess we will just not be throwing anything.
Instead of flowers my flower girls will be dropping sea shells (soft ones, no jagged edges). If you go to save-on-crafts.com they have some freeze dried petals on there, but I am not sure how long it would take to get them.

Someone else mentioned costco..... that is a good idea. We did that for my sisters wedding here. You can get like 2 dozen roses for $15 and you just cut off the petals, it is very easy. For her wedding we only needed about 6 roses for the girls. You can get a good amount of petals from 2 dozen roses!

I am not decided on the recessional song yet, we will probably stick with Signed, Sealed, Delivered. For the sand ceremony we are going to do a Dave Matthews song. We are leaning towards You and Me, but are not 100% certain.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT SONG... "I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand, life is good today". And think that is PERFECT... that is something we would love to use somewhere to, as that is our personalities as well!

Me and FI will be 30 by the wedding and most of our group is the same age or a bit younger. I'm sure we'll be hearing complaints!!

As far as the rose petals go..I wanted to write and say that Ana does not allow rose petals to be thrown on the beach. But, she does allow it if you are getting married at the gazebo.

So I went to Michael's and bought a few boxes of the silk rose petals and will have Ana scatter them on the aisle before the ceremony starts.
Interesting! I do have a flower girl.......so she won't be able to throw rose petals? It seems weird that Ana wouldn't allow real petals but she will allow silk petals? Is that what you are saying?

I contacted dreams and got terrible rates. The guy actually told me I'd get better rates through an agent, with all the same extras. The TA's can get the same rates as places like expedia. I'd definitely go with a TA.

I have called the resort and asked for the wedding coordinator several times, and most of the time have been able to speak with Ana or Yazmin. I too had problems nailing down a date and time, so I felt that was worth the phone call!

Another bride told me that you could mix menu options, for those doing the love or ultimate package.

I'd love to know the petal question, too. Thanks to all of you brides answering questions and all of you sharing sites. I think I now have an addiction to this thread! I was out of touch or a few days and began having withdrawal symptoms...

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
