      Hi Sweatpea and all other montreal brides!

      To answer your question, I was originally planning on getting married in Tulum. I have family in the Cancun area and we have been going down to Tulum now for close to 25 years, and i absolutely love it. After discussing with my fiance we decided to stay in the Cancun area itself. Our guests ages ranges quite a bit. We have a fair amount of elderly people coming down, and at least the hotels are a little more accessible to a hospital god forbid anything were to happen. But for the younger people we wanted them to be able to go out and party their little hearts out!

      I had gone down for a site visit for the Hilton cancun. Spoke with the wedding co-ordinator and actually started to make arrangements. Then out of the blue I got an e-mail saying that they had a buy out and that they would not have enough rooms for my guests until the day before the actual wedding. This would have been fine, except the majority of people are coming down the week before, which would have meant that everyone would have had to check out of a hotel and then check into the Hilton. All that to say it was way too complicated and not want i wanted people to experience for our destination wedding!

      I decided on The Gran Melia Cancun! I am lucky that my aunt lives in Cancun so she was able to go and take pics of the ceremony site and the reception area to help me out.

      So that is my long winded story hopefully i did not bore anyone to death. But if any of you girls are getting married in the Cancun area I would love to help you out. As i said i have been going there basically since birth!

      Happy Thursday!!

        It's so easy to get addicted to this message board!!! I'm so happy to have found BDW, it gives me sooooo many ideas for my wedding. But at the same time, I think it's kind of a curse too! What was suppose to be a very simple and casual wedding is turning into this big thing in my head. FI constantly has to remind me that we are on a very tight budget and that this is suppose to be a stress free and almost plan free wedding. LOL

              Jess you haven't lost it! Not until you've had nightmares about the wedding... or have you? haha I have a very plus size bridesmaid who bought the biggest size available in the kind of bridesmaids dress I picked, and that would be JUST fitting her...she hasnt tried it on yet, since she lives away but is coming home for Christmas. I had a nightmare that she DIDN'T fit, and that I had to get her a different dress and explain to my MOH that even though C had a different dress, she (K) was still the MOH, even though it wouldn't look that way! yikes... haha

                I had a nightmare that I forgot our wedding rings at home and only realized when we got to the resort.
                It's definitely a lot more stressful then I thought it'd be. But it's mainly due to guest not rsvping or certine people backing down.
                Everything wedding related I think I'm good to go! I've been doing this engagement/planning for 2 years so I just can't wait untill it's over with!!
