    Ooooh I love those!  So flowy and perfect for a beach wedding!  Yay, you must feel so relieved that they are ordered!

        Welcome! Is Las Palapas in Playa del Carmen (sorry, it sounds familiar but I haven't heard much about it... )? If so, you're not too far from where I will be! Let me know if I can help you out with a photographer - it was one of the first things I booked for that exact reason you are saying, I know the good ones book up early!


        Good luck, if that's all you have left to do it sounds like you are in good shape though! I feel like I have all the major things in place, but so many little details left to take care of... sigh.

          Hey Everyone! I haven't been on in awhile. How is everyones planning going? I can't believe how close we are getting to December already. We started getting our RSVPs back, so far we have 15 people booked and joining us. It is starting to feel more real now. I hope everyones planning is going well :)

            Anyone having a rabbi for their wedding ? I am flying in a rabbi from NY but we are getting nervous she is arriving on the day of the wedding, so we are looking for a back up. Any info is welcome !


            What are you guys doing for rehersal dinner ?


            I am looking for my shoes, and can't really decide. I was inspired by Angie ! nice picks : )


            Happy planning

              We are flying in a Cantor from Florida for our 12/12 wedding. I think if you want a Mexican/local back-up, you would have to arrange that ahead of time. The closest available person might be in Mexico City - so that's still not close. I hear it's very difficult to find a rabbi for the Cancun area. There is a Cantor who seems to specialize in destination weddings near the Caribbean/Mexico. She is based out of Florida and she is very responsive....if you have any other questions, I suggest you contact her:

                Only 2 months till December and I have so much to do still too!  And last week we decided to put an offer in on a house...and we got it!  Possession is in two weeks, so now between making OOT bags and programs, buying GM ties and deciding on flowers, music and menus we will be packing, moving and trying to get renters for our condo!!!  OMG!  This is just crazy!   Is everyone else really prepared or do you all have lots left to do too?

                  Wow Lindsey that's crazy! Congrats on buying a house though!!!


                  I still have SO much to do, lots of little details. This week has been SUPER stressful as it's the last week our group booking is open. Total chaos. And we ended up losing some money on a room that wasn't filled - like I don't have enough stress. Feeling kinda bummed too about a number of very important people to me that have decided not to come. I'm trying to get in the mindset of "it's their loss", but it's hard, I'm still disappointed no matter what. We still have a pretty big group going though, so can't be too upset. Definitely makes me appreciate all those people that are coming that much more! I tried to make myself feel better (and more on top of things) by ordering some things for the wedding this week: chair sashes, table runners, and our maraca favors. Believe it or not, it worked! Still lots to do, but everytime I can check something off my list I can breathe a bit easier.
