Yeah, I think it would be a lot to pack, unpack, and pack, but now that so many people are staying, I don't think it is going to feel like a true honeymoon with just the two of us bc we will see everyone at the pool :*(  We are already booked in the nicest area of the resort, so there's no room to upgrade either for a change.....I'm truly torn.

Kitty I think it comes down to how much you love your resort but FI and I were thinking about switching for a few days because we went for 14 nights and in the end didn't because in the end the wedding part flew so fast and was so busy that we needed the extra time! The resort was a completely different vibe for us once our party animal friends left and it was just the two of us.

 

I agree with FI on the hassle thing... we were offered nicer rooms at the same resort for free but still didn't take it because it would be such a PITA to move all of that wedding stuff!!! I can't imagine having to haul all that stuff to another resort and settle back in. Just my two cents!

Alright, so now that I have read through all of the posts...  all of you, your pictures are amazing!!!  Lisa, your video is the greatest thing!!!  I absolutely love it!!!!  Teira, I really love your pictures!!!

 

We just got back last night and most everything is sorted!!  I've posted a lot of my own pictures on Facebook and the account we setup with snapfish, and I've only gotten one picture from the photographer so far.  I think it will still be a few more weeks before I get them all.  Since we brought our photographer down with us, I cannot wait to see them!  I know at the beginning of the reception Friday night, so had over 2,000 pictures already!  The greatest part, we paid for the CD of all of them!!!  She was in Mexico for 2 days, working the whole time!!!

 

Overall, things were good.  We had a few hiccups, but it's a wedding, how could we not?!  The best part of it all is that, I wouldn't change a thing!!  The day of the wedding, was the hottest day of our trip, but we were right on the ocean, so the breeze was really nice!!

 

I'll leave you all with the one picture I have so far...

Kitty, we changed resorts for our "honeymoon" due to some of DH's family staying longer than we would have liked and we regretted it terribly.  Part of the problem was that Excellence was soooo amazing to us (but of course you already know how awesome Excellence is) and the Majestic Elegance was absolutely terrible.  They never got the memo that is was our honeymoon and they made us feel like we were a burden to them from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.  They even tried to downgrade us since they had overbooked! I'm not sure whether we got such amazing service at Excellence because it's always that amazing or because we had our wedding there and had booked a bunch of rooms.  Either way, we shouldn't have left.  To be honest though, the packing and unpacking wasn't such a big deal (although we had an extra round of it because we switched rooms at the second resort after the first night--another whole story, you can read the review on the Majestic Elegance review here), the main issue was how much worse the resort was. It probably won't totally feel like a honeymoon if you have that many people staying with you because you'll still see them around and probably have meals with them, but if they're close friends and perhaps you don't get to see them that often, you may really cherish that time with them because up until the wedding there was so much to take care of (meeting people for arrivals almost every day), wedding planning meeting and rehearsal with the coordinator, TTD the day after, etc.)  Just weigh your options and make sure you stay at an as nice, if not nicer, resort if you change.  And enjoy every moment, it goes by WAY too fast!!

OK, I don't know why my text didn't show up!

 

Basically, I agree that you shouldn't change resorts. For the week of our wedding we were so busy with wedding stuff that we didn't have much time to visit with our guests, so we cherished all the time we could have with them afterwards. Plus, if you want alone-time, I'm sure your group will understand:)

Shelley!!! love the AHR pics!!!!

 

 

As for changing resorts.. i absolutely LOVED our resort and wished everyone else would change or just GO after the wedding!!! LOL ..... i loved the trip and it was awesome getting to share it with everyone, but hubby and i never even got ONE entire day on our own because people wouldn't leave us alone!!!!  before going on the trip we had asked for some alone time since it would be our honeymoon as well but aside from one dinner on our own at an a la carte rest. there always seemed to be someone in our group around us at all times..... i'm dying to go on another trip just the 2 of us now to make up for it!

Welcome Back Erin! Beautiful Kiss!

 

Shelley, I absolutely love how elegant your dress is. Your AHR looked fabulous. The cake is so simple and beautiful. Even the colors look great in that space.

 

As for switching resorts, we considered it and figured if we did switch we would probably lose a day moving. We actually ended up upgrading our room two nights before our wedding. We hadn't unpacked much because we knew we wanted to move, but it was still a bit of a pain. I had to argue a little with the front desk because we were leaving for a tour and they didn't want to pick up our bags without someone there. But they did move everything while we were away and we did like the room upgrade. So my suggestion would be to avoid moving. Like Meggers said, it is a completely different atmosphere after the majority of the party leaves.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
