I'd love to hear what you are doing about yarmukles, ketubah, etc.! Thanks,
Hi Allegra,
Here is what I have ordered so far:
Ketubah: ketubah.com
Yarmukles: Yarmulke | Kippah | Benchers | Kippot | Tallit
Kosher food for our rabbi, challah & kosher wine (for ceremony): Kosher Order Form - Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center of Cancun. This is through the Chabad in Cancun; they require 3 weeks notice prior to delivery. I've emailed the rabbi there a few times and he is very nice & replies to my emails right away.
Mazol tov glass (for groom to stomp on at the end of the ceremony): Jewish Gifts, Judaica, Wedding Gifts, Bar & Bat Mitzvah Gifts, Jewish Baby Gifts

Feel free to PM me w/ any questions:) What resorts in RM are you considering?

My thinking is we are going to do a legal wedding in Mexico followed by a Jewish symbolic wedding done by a rabbi who also happens to be a family member. I hope it runs smoothly. I am not so interested to going to a courthouse in the states and just having a symbolic wedding in Mexico. To me it's getting legally married that I want people around for. Otherwise it feels like just a show.


I just hope we can convince the wedding coordinator to let us stay like 20 mins more so we can do all the Jewish traditions in the same place as the legal wedding. Should be interesting!
