    That's a really good idea! And if they don't have your specific colors you could always go with white! And there's a walmart as well that might have roses!

The quote we got for the first week of May 2011 was a bit over the top ($1946 pp txes included) but we're doing it anyway.

      How are you getting everything to Mexico for your wedding? CPs, any stuff for guest totebags/gifts, etc. Are you shipping it there or bringing it with you in luggage? Are you worried about them asking questions at the airport if it's in your luggage?

      Seems like a silly thing to worry about, I'm sure. Just wondering... thanks and congratulations to everyone!


      Welcome! And congrats!!! You'll find tons of info on this forum.
      I'm bringing it down with me - I've also heard horror stories of people trying to ship things. We don't have that much to bring - mostly just the stuff for the welcome bags. But just carry your receipts and tell the customs agent that it's for a wedding, show the receipts and you shouldn't have a problem.

        Hello Ladies!

        I can't believe that the wedding is exactly in one month from today. We are super excited yet it's so stressful at the same time right now.

        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.

          I am not sure about centerpieces yet. I really didn't like any that Ana had sent me. I know I want something bright and tropical to go with the fuschia. What about u?

                Whoa! we are less than a month away from our wedding and I'm freaking out. I haven't done much and just to give you an idea we just bought my finance's suit lastnight. I need suggestions on what the groomsmen should wear.
                1. white linen shirts w/ tan colored slacks
                2. white cotton button up shirts w/ tan colored slacks
                I'm not a fan of linen on linen, but perhaps you can sway me in one way or the other. My mind is foggy and I feel lost. Not sure what's the best look.

                I want to book an excursion, which vendor are some of you ladies using? My budget is about $1k and we have 40 guests coming.

                I know read sometime back of a vendor that sells cheap chair sashes and table top covers. Do any of you have this vendor handy that you can supply me with?

                OOHH and for those of you who hav wed there already, how many songs would you say I need for the ceremony? I suppose it would be nice to have music playing while the guests wait, right?

                Help, help, help....thanks girls, xoxo.

                  Hey ladies! I am still having such trouble with writing my ceremony script for a symbolic ceremony. I saw one posted here and it was pretty good, but I still can't find the "right one". Any idea of sites to find samples? Help!!!

                      I am bringing my totes and everything for the totes with me. Putting a little in everyone's bags. LOL. I am too worried to have it shipped there. U never know if it will get there after it goes through customs.
