    My fiance got them really nice book bags with their last names embroidered on them.  He is also paying for the registration to a mud run for all of them since they loved doing those things together.

        ok this sounds good, we can go to town hall a few days before just to make it official, go to mexico, walk down the aisle symbolically, then come home and exchange vows in church!

         

        has anyone officially contacted the resort to make sure we do not need to bring any documentation?

          That's a bummer! I am really concerned about the DJ being able to play and understand how to mix "my style" of music. My family is originally from Jamaica. I'm pretty sure their DJ would not be familiar with that style of music (I did not want to get married in Jamaica... Too many of my cousins have gotten married there already . I was considering having my cousin (who DJs) DJ. That all depends on if he can make it or not. I hope that the "no outside DJ" rule does not apply.

            OK GUYS WE NEED HELP!!!

             

            we, like most of us, are doing the symbolic ceremony- since it is way easier.

             

            what i need to know is WHEN ARE YOU GETTING LEGALLY MARRIED?

             

            what documents do they need when we go to Mexico?

             

            are you going to town hall/your church a few days before Mexico or a month before?

             

            we have been going back and forth about this for a while. but we know its easier to get the info from the professionals on this board then the people at dreams!

             

            thanks...

            respond here or email me!

            To my knowledge, once you opt for a symbolic ceremony, they do not ask for any legal documents. I don't even think they are concerned when and if your ever plan on getting legally married.

             

            We plan on getting legally married at our City Hall the day before we leave for Mexico (that day is the actual day we met). So we figured the day will still be special for us even though we are acknowledging our "wedding" day as our actual anniversary.

              Do you have any pictures of your seaside grill reception?

               

              Hmm suprisingly I don't have any good pictures of the reception at Seaside Grill that show off the space, which is not too suprising since I wasn't satisfied with my table set up anyways.

              This is the best I could find. If any of my guests have one I'll put it up when I get it.

                I put them in my carry on and was a bit worried, but once we got to our room they were fine. I just rearranged any flowers stems that might have been pushed to the side. So they were fine I wouldn't worry about it at all !

                    How was customs when they inspected your carry on?  Did they question the flowers?

                      So I'm kind of bummed.  We have been in talks with a travel agent to block some rooms for our wedding next April.  When we started the agreement Dreams had not yet released April 2013 prices, so our TA was able to quote us 2012 prices for next year.  We were expecting the rates to go down for our wedding since 2012 price was Easter and it won't be in 2013.  

                       

                      Well, they finally released 2013 prices and to our surprise they went up.  A LOT!  Our agent was shocked too.  We hadn't signed the agreement yet or paid.  Luckily for us we used a good agent who was able to still use our agreement and we still locked in the 2012 price.  She did add a clause that if the prices go down or a promo is offered they will lower our rates.

                       

                      So if any of you are procrastinating blocking rooms I suggest you do it quickly!  At least the price you lock won't go up.   I just wanted to share our experience with you :)
