    Brighter NOTE: We got legally married on Friday !!!!ya for us!! We tried to keep it a secret, but we were too excited to keep it from our friends!!

    So NOW back to wedding planning!

    Those who have gotten married or who will be getting married...without a MC, but had the speakers and used their IPOD- who announced the bride and groom and things like that.. your first dance etc etc?? Did it seem weird using an IPOD without a DJ/MC?

    o shoot! i hope your fiancee is ok!

      Food choices... has anyone decided on that??

      I am just going to print everything I want out, and hope for the best!!!
      i think there is something on the wedding contract that states they dont receive packages at the moon palace, but i guess if you are sending it to the actual fed ex office, that may be different. its a risky chance tho!

        I'm still finishing my baskets, so far I have

        hand sanitizer
        little customized packets of Margarita mix
        funny sunglasses
        Thank you note

        I feel like i'm missing some stuff!

        what are you girls putting in yours?
        thats a cute idea! im thinking of doing the same but as a basket with favors and even a program of day to day events.

          Just want to give one piece of advise for any brides-to-be before I get round to doing a review....make a list of all the photos you want and give to your photographer....I read this advise soo much on this site and didn't do it because I had the attitude that the photographer would know what to do....however if you want specific photos, you need to let your photographer know! I completely forgot about a few photos, and am kinda sad about it...although I know my photos are gonna be amazing without them, I wish i'd remembered...just silly ones like when all the men lift the bride up, or when everyone is running into the sea....I thought I'd remember everything because I was soo into the photos...however on the day my mind just went blank!

          Just wanted to share my wisdom for any forthcoming brides....get an email sent to your photographer with some bullet points..or get a list printed to give them on the day :)
          Did you use the Moon Palace photographer? That is a good idea though, I don't want to regret not getting certain photos.

Her body was found today in a gutter at Moon Palace in Cancun. OK.....so my guests are freaking out now. I've already heard..."Quite the up-scale place you picked Chelle!"

              OK PEople...this is not a random killing...this is a domestic murder at a resort, which is what I am reminding everyone of. But seriously.....none of us really needed this to happen at the resort we are getting married at. Shit will happen....but Geez...why on my watch!

              Had to vent. Sorry.
              WHAT! omg! well, im sure there are crime scenes all over cancun, so you can always tell them that when it comes to partying and clubbing in the city. ultimately even if something happend at the resort it should not raise an alarm. murders happen in my hometown and i still live here safely.

              i think guests may either be really concerned and worried.... or finding info to make you feel bad, probably steamed off of jealousy. we have seen that already in our wedding. one girl kept talking trash about what we are doing. she is just comparing our wedding to hers that is also coming up.

Besides, by doing so I've calculated to save about $1000 in which I intend to spend elsewhere!
                  Thats what we are doing too! So exciting!

                    No we brought our own photographer which annoys me even more because we paid a fortune...but its my own fault....it has been suggested on here time and time again about making a list to give to your photographer, but me being me thought I knew better, and didn't want to come over all bridezilla like. But looking back, it wouldn't have at all, it would just have gave our photographers an idea of what we were looking for. DOH!!!

                      For those that got the complementary wedding package...is the beach setup in white included? Is it big and flowy like the "packaged" weddings. Some photos I see the fabric looks like it is less than that on the pictures the resort sends. This flowy look is exactly what I want. I want most things in the packages so buying a package is not a major concern of mine...but if I can get the same or very similar look with add ons for less...why not. I will still need to add some things to the packages..like music and some purchases from home like centerpieces. Any advice?
