Your review was awesome, thanks so much for sharing.  I'm so jealous that you got to visit all those resorts :P  We're planning on getting married at the NOW Sapphire in July 2011.  I didn't have the opportunity to check out any of the resorts in person so your review was very helpful!

Is/has everybody done a legal ceremony?  It save a TON of money to do it at home first - it's very expensive to do it there..wondering if you've done it if it was awkward?  If you told anybody??  Any thoughts???

Thanks! It was so much fun. I really don't have any idea how most people don't have a destination wedding!

Yes the resort salon did my hair and makeup. She did a great job. (wish I could remeber her name) I did my liner and a few false lashes though. I was worried about it so I booked a hair and mk up trial. I think it was $110 with the wedding package discount. So I got 2 days of beautiful hair and makeup!

Sarcrook --

We plan on doing the legal side of things here at home in the US due to cost. Not sure if it will be before or after, though I'm leaning towards after we get back from Mexico. I saw a photographer's comment on this topic awhile ago and he made a good point -- he basically said even though the Mexico ceremony will only be symbolic, it will still look and feel like your wedding, and you want those emotions and feelings to be captured in the photos. He said he's seen so many couples where they did the legal wedding before the MX wedding and it didn't feel as authentic. Just a thought.

 

I don't really plan on broadcasting to everyone that it's not the legal wedding.. we will celebrate our anniversary as the date in Mexico. Obviously our parents and whoever we have as witnesses to legal side in the States will know, but other than that I see no reason to bring it up!

82turtles..that is a GREAT point!!  I feel like if we wait and do it after it won't seem as odd - like it's just sort of "sealing the deal"..vs. doing it before could be a little awkward.  Let me know what you decide for sure!
