    Hey girls! New February 2011 bride. No date set yet but we're thinking Feb 12. We have such a short window and I still have no idea where to have it at. I'm getting overwhelmed!! :/

    Question though... how is the weather down there during that time of year? I'm assuming fabulous all the time but I've only ever been during May/June or October and it's HOT! :)

      I'm 90% sure I'm getting married on February 5th at the JW Marriott in Cancun. Super excited!

          I think I am going to use the for the 3 brides maids. Depending on how they feel when I get them I might bulk them up a little with spiral branch thingys =) I might put them in my suitcase or have each brides maid responsible for her own.....Tho that sounds scary lol. My mom offered to take an extra suitcase as well.

            Hi ladies!

            It looks like most of you are still in your planning stages, and if I might, can I pass on a few vendors for you to consider? My daughter was married last May at the Fairmont Mayakoba, everything went beautifully and these vendors and suppliers did a great job for us:

            Invitations: Ajalon Printing (Santa Rosa, CA) made letterpress affordable. Trish Jackson was a delight to work with.

            Calligraphy by Jennifer: She does an amazing number of fonts in a bold style that fills up your envelope space. Beautiful work. We had one small glitch, but I'm over it...

            Ceremony (Ours was non-denominational.): Kiko Flores. Our guests thought he had known the couple for years!

            Flowers: Vanessa Jaimes. Elegant and understated, and the oceanfront wedding site was stunning.

            String Trio: Big Bang Entertainment. Perfect touch and they timed things perfectly.

            Napkins, stir sticks, etc: Great service and they replicated the couple's monogram without custom are work.


            And a plug for the Fairmont: The event management and staff here are outstanding. They are easy to work with, professional and carried out the details to perfection. I don't think I've stayed anywhere where management and staff were as genuine in their desire to make us and our guests happy.

            Let me know if I can share email addresses and websites.

            Here's a suggestion for your table numbers: Use Mexican house number tiles and lean them against your vases. It's a Martha Stewart thing...

            And use Wedding Mapper for your guest management. Access is by user name and password, so family members can track RSVP's from wherever they are. Acceptances are automatically dropped onto the seating chart by parties, parties can be seated in one step, and family members can seat their guests from their homes. We shared this access with the event's planners, and they were able to set up the room as we were planning. No last minute escort card adjustments!

              Is anyone concerned that it may be cold at night? We area going inside to a ballroom at 9:30 but I wonder if it gets cold before then.

                You could search a weather website to see what the average temps are like....I'm not too worried about it being really chilly, but most people will come prepared with a shawl or cover-up I'm sure!

                  I bought a little white jacket / shawl thing to wear with my dress if needed. I saw this on etsy that I love love love, but decided it was to expensive. I have a short dress so it fits nicely.

                  Was close to getting it. Instead I found a little cotten jacket, with short sleeves at the Gap I am going to pin flowers to. Similar to how its done in the picture.

                    Hey ladies! I'm super excited like the rest of you but now I don't really have anything to do until we know the number of people coming then we will decide our dinner etc. I am getting married on a budget and so far I have been able to pull it off :)

                    I do recommend Ivan Luckie Photography- He is easy to work with and has lots of good reviews on this website.

                    Congrats all

                      I looked it up as I wanted to post it on my website for my guests so they know what to bring.

                      It's 83 during the day and 68 at night
