We will send out the AHR invites at the end of January. We were worried about sending out the invites to the AHR too far in advance so decided to send out 2 invites, one being more of a STD/invite. I'm sure I made that explanation much more complicated than it needed to be!! Haha. Here's the ones that have already gone out.

      I think I mentioned it already but Tricia your STD's are awesome-- Vday Bride and I are going to the wholesale district to get cheap wedding ideas for things to bring to Mexico. If I find some great items I will let you know what I find and we can switch stuff out!

        I just had to comment... I photographed a wedding at Moon Palace this past September and it was absolutely gorgeous... I was a little hesitant being that it was kind of "Cancun" and that it would be a bit cheesy... but I was completely impressed. The staff was professional, the locations were beautiful, and the food was good. If any of you want to take a look... here' a slideshow of the pics.

        My couple (Elizabeth & Will) truly utilized the whole resort (golf, spa, private dinners in different locations inside and out)... if any of you are wondering what it was like feel free to contact me. As a person who sees a lot of resorts... this one was top notch.

        Congrats... have fun!

              Ok, I have a question that may be dumb, but I really know very little about destination weddings!!....I've noticed some of you talk about doing a "sand ceremony." What is it? What's it's significance? Where do you get the stuff for it? :) Does it take the place of a unity candle during a traditional ceremony? Thanks!

              Yes, it's similar to the unity candle and is used a lot for sea-side weddings because the breeze usually does not work for the unity candle portion of the ceremony. I've attached sample wording that I found from another bride on this site. You can order some really cute sets online for the sand/vases, or just make your own.

              Here's a cute set I found online:

                Is anyone setting up a group activity, like snorkeling for example? If you are, then when will you have it (1 day before, 1 day after ceremony, etc) and how are you going about setting it up (with Miami WC)? I'm curious.

                  haha I believe STD's everywhere are Sexually Transmitted Diseases! When I first read that I thought it was strange too!

                  I sent out my STD's in July which will make it a year before. I should have done what Vgirl did and send out two cards, but it was a little expensive to send one, so I did not want to send too. I did save money on my STD's bc my fiance did it for us!

                    Hi.. I am actually trying to set upa group activity separate from Moon Palace tours. I am trying to do a booze cruise or snorkle trip the day before or two days before. I have not decided. It is hard to communicate with the companies so we are having a little trouble. Hopefully my cousin's husband (he is Mexican) will have some luck!

                    Let me know what you decide to do and when!
