Jenn, what kind of flowers did you get for yourself and for your BMs -- did you get all of them from Marvin?

Kim, I just posted my review.  I'm not sure what happened b/c I don't see it listed yet.  I spent about two hours on it.  Anyway, I'm so happy for you.  I know you will have a great week and a beautiful wedding.  Congrats in advance.  Enjoy it and I can't wait to see your pictures!

They are from Marvin.  I tried to find a good close up pictures of them.  This was the best I could do from the proofs:

The BM's are daisies and mine are daisies and roses.  Here are the pictures I choose these based on:

Not at all. It was $385 total.  So that was $120 for mine, $55 each for my BM's and $15 each for 3 bags of petals for the runner.

Jenn thanks for sharing.  This is similar to the quotes he sent me so i'm glad that he's consistent.  I'm going to use him for my flowers.

We did the symbolic ceremony and were very happy with it.  It's essentially the same as the civil ceremony except you don't have to do bloodwork first (& the symbolic ceremony is cheaper since you don't have to pay for the bloodwork and paerwork). 

 

My parents were the only guests that knew that it was not a legal ceremony. It looked and felt like a real wedding ceremony to everyone (including us).  We got married in front of a priest and my parents (& dogs) after we got home, but to be honest, I don't even remember the date of that ceremony because we consider the day we got married in Mexico as our true anniversary. 

 

During the ceremony, you and your fiance & the priest all sign a certificate so everyone thinks you're signing a license or something, but it's not a legal piece of paper.  We decided we didn't want to have to deal with the bloodwork, & we didn't want our marriage license to be filed with the Mexican government because if we ever needed an official copy of it later, it seems like it would be much easier to deal with our own local government.

 

I would highly recommend the symbolic ceremony.

I was just reading a thread where she did the symbolic instead to avoid the blood work etc? (I'm deathly afraid of needles...lol)

 

Is it the same package if you do the symbolic?  What's the difference?

 

I was thinking that we could just go to the justice of the peace before or after our destination wedding.

 

THanks ladies!!!

For our upcoming trip I requested the Mango, Pina, Chile or Toronja buildings in the Sunrise section.  They are all on the side of the Sunrise Lobby closest to the Nizuc section.

I am going to have my cousin take all the random pics so I can write a review to pay it forward and to help future MP brides!

The forecast is kind of bumming me out but what can I do.  I'll try to check in during the week with updates!
