    I found dress shopping kind of fun and it went way faster than I thought. I didn't fall for any of the dresses until I tired on "the one." After that, I found one other that was a competitor, but as soon as I tried on my original favorite.....I swiped the credit card!!
    My dress is made by Pronovias.....M.M. something. I'm not sure of the style name but it is kind of a trumpet style. I will post pics in January when I get my hands on my dress.
    Thanks for all your kind words and support!

          I too am going veil less! To me its kind of an old tradition i guess. Or maybe I'm just not into it! My dress shopping experience was painful! I probably went to 8 different shops and tried on dress after dress. Just couldn't find the right one, but I did find it at my last attempt!! Its very flowy and perfect for Cancun!

          So...just wondering who on here has done DIY centerpeices and what did you do? I am looking for ideas on doing them in Cancun but am a little nervous not knowing what I will be able to find for vases, etc. I was thinking a trip to Walmart to find vases and then have flowers delivered. Any thoughts or ideas??

            Centerpieces, I have purchased small square white plates that I will pour decorative sand on with a 6" pillar candle in our colour Aqua blue and with seashells around in the sand. Simple easy to transport and very cheap to make. I bought shells & plates from Dollar Rama, and candles from Walmart. Each centerpiece cost about $12.00, candle costing $9.00 the most expensive. I should have taken a pic of the demo, everyone that came to my house and seen it, loved it. Good luck in your planning...

              Nice touch! Very easy to transport too! I think I'm going to ask the WC at my resort if they have centerpieces. That way I won't have to transport them down there!

                Those sound great! Great idea! I haven't even thought of this. I am so worried about how much stuff I am going to end up trying to bring to Mexico! Where am I going to put it all? I am an over-packer as it is :)

                Well, I got my dress back in August. I had fun trying on dresses but it was a little stressful too. I went to one shop because I saw a dress in a magazine that I loved and they had it there. When I tried it on, I loved it but it was taffeta and I was so hot in it - it was sticking to me! I thought that probably wouldn't be a great idea for Mexico :) So, I tried on about 7 or 8 more dresses and found one that I loved just as much! I can't wait to get it!

                  Did you buy all the stuff in the US and then bring it down? I was thinking of actually doing the DIY centerpeices while down in Cancun that way I wouldn't have to worry about transporting. Any thoughts on that idea?

                    I have bought my stuff here because my experience with Mexico is there isn't very much stuff there to work. There is a few stores in Playa De Carmen not much though. I am traveling "Air Canada" we're allowed 100lbs each so i am not too worried. Could you have friends and family bring some of this stuff down for you.... Just an Idea...
