    I received 2 emails from Ana yesterday.... within minutes of emailing her!!! Maybe it was a fluke, but I was very surprised by it!

    I wanted to substitute the Mexican trio for the iPOD speakers, however, that is not possible. Ana told me the only substitution they are allowed to do now is flower changes. For example, I am getting 3 bridesmaid bouquets instead of table arrangements because I have my own centerpieces.

    I have decided to keep my decorations very simple. I was going to do chair sashes, but then decided that it will look great regardless because of the setting so I did not want to stress myself out over who would put them on the chairs. I also thought that having the overlays would be enough at the reception, so I will not be doing chair sashes there either.

    I received some new pictures from Ana.... one of which I believe is possibly Carina from this forum She also sent me the link to Juan Nevarra's blog, and he still is taking pictures for Dreams. Maybe he is only doing the weddings that were confirmed before the switch to Adventure photos?? I am not sure, but his pictures look really great.

      I have a logistics question:

      For those doing chair sashes, how are you getting them from the ceremony to the reception? Are the same chairs being used or is someone untying them from the ceremony and retying them at the reception? Or are you just getting enough to cover ceremony AND reception chairs?

        I am not doing chair sashes, but I believe other ladies have commented on that if you are getting Ana / resort to tie them for you then you need to bring enough sashes for the ceremony and reception if you wish to have them at both, they wont untie and retie them at the next location.

            Thanks, Boo, for the pictures on page 232. This 150 posts is tough for me... So much I need to see... and I already feel like I'm on here all the time, yet soooo far to go...

              ha ha yeah, its addictive though, I dont know what I would have done if it wasnt for this forum. When I joined this thread I think it was at 60 pages, its easier to keep up and catch up I guess, but I would recommend any newer joiners to bight the bullet and go thru it all, its a life saver.

                Is anyone planning on doing a TTD session while in Mexico? I am going back and forth about it and can't decide! If I do it, I don't know what photographer to go with. I already have Claudia booked for the wedding and I think another session with her is just too pricey. Anyone have any advice?

                  What about the resort photographers? And they're included in your package! I'd send them an email - someone posted Anel's email address in an earlier post - and see if they could do it!
                  OR check with the other brides and see if they have a photographer booked for later in the day (assuming you're doing the ttd the day after your wedding in the morning...but you know what I mean!)

                    Thanks for posting these. I did email Juan Navarros and he told me he is no longer the resort photographer, so it must just be for the weddings that were confirmed before the switch.

                    Does anyone know when the switch was, exactly? I'm going to ask Ana if he can still be our photographer, I really like his work. We had our date confirmed a couple of months ago, not sure if I fall in this grace period.

                      Hey ladies! I know this is totally off topic but I'm super excited...we got our wedding invitations in today! They're totally not DIY or even remotely DIY because I'm not crafty...not crafty at all and completely stressed out about the programs/welcome letters/table cards and tags that I somehow convinced myself to make...but anyway...
                      here are my invites - what do you think?!
