    I'm with prettypigpig and michelle 2011, I love when people write their own vows, but I'm not that romantic or poetic, than add in the fact I'd be nervous and hate public speaking, grrr, so it would add another layer of stress for me. Plus I think FI would just say something like "Your the best, I love you" and that would be it.

      CeeCee76 - Arrrr bless your FI. But that does say it all, your the best and he loves you! :o)

      I will probably go with a card like Nicyx. I'm sure FI will write a beautiful speech. He is very good with words. He was recently best man to his best friend and he did us all proud so i'm sure he will have me in tears on the day....Now getting my dad to speak is another storey! I think my dad may give me away and then mum say a few words. She (like me) likes a chat, lol...I'm just not good at doing it publicly!

      Have you girlies though of OOT bags and what to go in them?

      I also found (through this site, it's WICKED) some tote bags for the bridal party. But will i feel like i've left other female guest out?? If i buy for all it will get expensive so not sure what to do....? Maybe i will just get for Bride, Mother of the bride and Maid of Honor..... These are on graciousbridal.com

        Frech veil, yeah, I am glad that u girls like my idea of French veil.

        OOT bags, I saw a lot of brides are talking about them, but I think it is a bit too early to buy/ plan for what to put in them. In addition, I have a feeling that I will carry so much stuffs to mexico, OOT bags will probably overload my luggages too.

        As for the resort, I was told by Ocean Turquesa that I can't have a beach reception (because of Turtle season). Plus I saw a few negative reviews on Tripadvisor...hmm..I guess I will cross this resort off my list (even the WC is the most responsive one!).

          The french veil is very pretty for you :o)

          As for overloading luggage i thought the same but i'm going to give mum, sis, etc bits to take too so hopefully ok. I'm not going to go over the top with them just a little something and a note to say thank you for coming etc I'd like to maybe get them printed with our wedding date on (depending on price) so i wont buy just yet. Just getting ideas and window shopping....

          Sorry to hear about your resort Prettypigpig, such a shame but a least you found out early so you hadn't set your heart on it. I'm sure you will find the perfect place and i cant wait to hear about your site visits..:o)

            I prefer the first one with the flowers, because it will look nicer in pics! heehee
            The second one is less noticeable in pics.

              Michelle i love that bag what a fab find... im going to do OOT bags but not given this much thought yet, i have a few ideas but i need to see numbers for the wedding party first i think before i fully decide what to do. I think i will go for a nosey now at where you got that bad, its so cute :-)

              Thanks prettypigpig :-) I love posting on here as you girls are so honest and thats what i need, a few opinions to help me decide... The up do with the flower it is... i just hope it suites me when i go for trials..... Watch this space. wont be done for months yet but i will defo post pix to get the yes' and the no's :-)
              Im sure you will find your perfect resort soon prettypigpig & im sure you site visits will have a huge impact on your decission...

              Im not sure about any speeches to be honest, well not te traditional oes like we would prob have getting wed in the UK anyway. Im sure both FI and I will say a little thank you speach at the reception diner, but i will ask my dad if he wants to say anything as he's not a confident person anyway and to make him do a speech would put im in an uncomfortable position. but i will just say to him if he wants to he can if not then thats ok too :-)
              I too love it when people do there own vows but im rubbish at things like that and wouldnt know what to put and would probably end up copying something from the internet but then that defeats the object coz they are supposed to be my vows!!!

                Nicola,
                Maybe after a few tequila shots..your dad will open up! I saw a few drunken dads speech in the past, some of them were hilarious! (because the dads were so DRUNK, and started to talk nonsense!) I am serious! Be aware of drunken guests! especially those first time AI ones...I saw a pic of a bride on this forum who got wine spilled on her dress by some in laws...hmm...
