      Bonnie - the knock off dress is great - the internet was born to order great things like this :-)

      Mishaka - Your dress is lovely - i would love to wear something like that - no kids for me but im all hips and just couldnt get away with wearing it. You will so have to post come pics once you have it - how exciting :-)

        Thankyou everyone..... what are your thoughts on strapless bras? I hate them usually, but think i´m going to need one under the frock. Trouble is they´re so uncomfortable, and they usually end up round my waist anyway. Anyone got an amazing magical bra to recommend?

          I'm with you. Honestly, the BEST strapless bra I've ever found was a $15 one from the Maidenform outlet. I'm sure you could find something similar or have it shipped to Spain. I've got...uh...a large upper region, so it's really hard to find a strapless bra that doesn't give me four boobs or, like you, end up down around my waist. The Maidenform one is SUPER comfy and fits perfectly!!!

            Hi..Beth Anne here
            Just talked with wedding coordinator and I'm a bride to be January 17, 2011 at Dreams Riviera Cancun! The resort has phenomenal reviews and it is a 5 star rating- I spent alot of time choosing the right location and resort and also reading past travelers reviews, because thats really the only way you can get an idea. I'm so excited! Me and my fiance were on the fence about all the legal stuff required for a marriage in Mexico, and at first i was really against the idea of doing the court house at home and then just having the symbolic ceremony at the resort because we wanted our big day to feel like "our big day!!" But it turns out were both too squeemish about the required blood work (and clean needles in another country) and also we could save 800-1000 by doing it this way. We will go to the courthouse a few days before we leave and be very informal about it, we agreed to sign the papers, not kiss (shake on it instead) and not recite vows or exchange rings, that way the ceremony on the beach will feel like the real thing!
            So excited. Any other 2011 dreams Riviera Cancun brides? and how far along are you in your planning? I'm curious if its difficult to plan a wedding by e-mail! =(

              Right i´ll get looking on the internet. Mine used to be large and now are a sad shadow of their former selves which are not where god intended them to be, infact they´re about 6 inches south of where god intended them to be. Can´t even put an exclamation mark at the end of that sentence, i´m too sad......

                Hello Ladies: I just found this thread and it has been SO helpful... I am fairly new on here and just made the reservation for my May 2011 wedding in Playa Del Carmen!! I have a question though since I'm sure you all have way more experience at this point... Does anyone know if it is better to use a DW travel agent? If so does anyone know a good one? THANKS :)

                  Welcome and congratulations!!!

                  Yes, it's better to use a DW travel agent. Actually, the creator of this forum is one herself, and there are many other DW agents on this forum. There should be a banner at the top of the page...click on that and you'll be able to get in touch with one.

                    Silly question maybe..how are some brides all set on a resort and wedding date if not officially booked yet? I ask bc Ive seen talk about prices not being out etc on their resort. Are they booking with just a deposit to a TA?

                      Not a silly question at all! We booked our wedding package through our resort & paid our deposit for the wedding only. I can only speak for booking at our resort - Iberostar. We will pay the hotel directly for all wedding package costs. We booked our wedding, knowing that the price might slighly increase for next year. The hotel will have a wedding coordinator that will get you all that information. Some resorts do have their 2011 rates available now - ours didn't.

                      For the flight/hotel, we are going through a local TA. We haven't booked our trip yet because our TA told us that flight information wasn't available for a year out yet (our date is June 25, 2011). I keep calling once every couple of weeks to check (and I'm sure I'm quickly becoming a pain in her butt).
