Congratulations!!! Everything looks absolutely fantastic! Do you have a time-line for the ceremony day that you would be willing to share? We will be getting married within a few days of you (but next year) and I'm trying to figure out what a good time-line would be from getting ready to the ceremony to dinner/dancing, etc.
Also, did you get your cake through the resort or did you have an outside vendor?

I'm a bit of a ridiculous Excel spreadsheet-maker so I definitely have time-lines. I'm attaching the one for the day of the wedding (getting ready, pictures, etc) but feel free to PM your email address to me and I can send you more of my stuff. Our ceremony started at 5pm and we did a 'first look' before the ceremony. It was super hot for pre-ceremony pics but starting at 5pm worked nicely because we got the pretty sunset light during dinner. Also, it wasn't too hot at all for the ceremony or dinner. We had a great breeze and everyone said that they felt really comfortable.
The GREAT thing about booking DJ Doremixx is that he provides you with a very detailed spreadsheet for the reception time-line. We were able to put our song choices for the special dances on there and he ran the reception schedule to a tee! I emailed him my completed time-line the week before we got to Mexico and then we went through it again when we met the week before the wedding. For an overly-organized type like me, it was great to have that reassurance!
The resort did the cake. I decided that it was best to have them keep it simple (less chance for disaster) and then we gave them the purple ribbon and cake toppers. Our florist brought the fresh flowers (free of charge!) to complete the cake. It turned out better than I anticipated.

I sent you a PM
Did you and your new husband stay in MX longer for a honeymoon after your wedding week??

We stayed in Mexico for a total of 12 days. We arrived to HTR on the Monday before our Saturday wedding. This was great b/c it gave us time to meet with our vendors and finish up last-minute details before guests arrived. I think that a lot of our guests were surprised to arrive on Wed and find me essentially stress-free.
We left HTR on Monday and spent 5-nights at La Tortuga Hotel in downtown Playa del Carmen. I HIGHLY recommend it if you are looking for a change from the all-inclusive. It was really fun to be able to wander around the town, try different restaurants and do a few excursions. The inside of the hotel is very calm and serene so it felt like our private little escape...just what we needed after 4+ days of being the center of attention!

Becks1581 - YAY! Thank you for sharing pictures! You looked amazing on your wedding day and everything turned out beautiful!! I'm going to PM you for some time-lines of your big day... specifically, I was wondering if you got a time-line from Allibe/Luis on the reception dinner.
Thank you for all your great info!

Hi Becks... sorry one more question.. I'm not sure if you already answered this, but how many people ended up attending your wedding?
