    we also went with the ultimate wedding package :-) Have you decided where the ceremony and reception will be?

    Ceremony is at 330 at the gazebo and right now our reception is the pool terrace but I'm not sure if that's where we will actually have it. How about you?

      thanx for the helpful info about the photographs and how they come on a CD. I dont know why I didnt realize this. I sort of still dont understand it because if Adventure photos isnt actually printing the pics why dont they just burn all of the pictures they took onto a CD for us? Why even make us choose which photos when they are just going onto a CD? They already put them on the computer for us to choose from, so it actually would cost them NOTHING to put them all on a CD. lol i dont know this is just a silly thing to me... then from there we could choose what to get printed and so forth.

      i completely agree!!! They already have them all edited so they are just going to throw them away anyway. It's just another way to get $$ i guess!!

        We were going to do frames for a few things like this, but I feel like we're bringing so much stuff with us at this point that I will probably just print the signs off and use the holders, if possible.  Did you print your cards yourself?  Are they 5 x 7"?    

        Yup, I just gave them the cards and they had the little holders :)

          I actually ordered them from an Etsy shop called Marrygrams. I needed something quick because I waited until the last minute to decide I needed those and she was in Houston and I actually got them the day after I ordered them. I'm sure you could make something like this easily if you have the right paper!

              I don't really have any suggestions, but I just wanted to tell you that I'm so sorry and I'll be praying for your family. I know this news has to be devastating, especially with planning a wedding. I know how important it is to you to have your mother there and this news just has to be so hard. I'll be thinking about y'all. 

               

              If it were me in this situation, I think that I would get married in the UK where my mom could be there. I think all of your guests would understand the reasoning behind it. We weren't in the same situation, but we did get legally married here in Houston before we left for Mexico. It didn't change anything and all of our guests knew about it.

                I'm so so sorry to hear this.  It must be such a difficult time for you right now, taking in the news about your mom and also trying to decide what to do about your wedding.  My gut feeling is to get married in the UK with your mom there.  As someone who lost their Dad a few years ago, I know that's what I would do.  I would give anything to have my dad there there to see me get married.  If you decided to get married in the UK, it could be as simple as you and your fiance just standing in front of a judge and saying your vows and signing the papers, with just you two and your parents.  And then you could still have your dream wedding in Mexico with all of your guests. You could tell your guests or not - I really don't think it would matter to any of them if the knew, or if they found out later, especially if they knew the reason behind it.   The ceremony and party in Mexico would still be your wedding.  As long as you feel like you could still go to Mexico for that week and enjoy yourself and your wedding, without your mom.  If not, it might be a good idea to postpone it for a few months.  I just feel like this is the type of thing where if you didn't get married with your mom there, you might end up regretting it later.  Anyway, that's all just my opinion, I'm sure you will make the decision that is best for you and your fiance.  

                 

                I really feel for you and what you're going through, and I'll be thinking of you!

                    hey Kara,

                    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I just feel like I should tell you that a lot of people get legally married before they go to mexico... it is not like you are telling a lie i mean in mexico you are not getting legally married anyway so i dont see an issue with this. we chose to do it afterwards, but a lot of people do it before. If I were you I would get married where I live, with my mom there. Maybe you can wear a simple white dress and then go to dinner or something special afterwards. You can tell your guests, or not tell them its really up to you and it shouldnt matter at all to anyone. If you want to postpone the wedding thats understandable too, but I would not miss the chance to get married with my mom and yes you can still have your wedding in mexico like you want and i bet your mom would still want you to have your dream wedding. my thoughts & prayers are with you <3
