    for flowers. His prices are amazing and I know past brides that have used him and said he was great.

    For music my cousin and a good friend of my family is playing some where over the rainbow on spanish guitar for the ceremony

    We did the mariachi band for the cocktail hour who is than going to walk with us over to Kool

    I am using DJ Doremixx (Ivan) for the reception

    For favours I got luggage tags made through etsy that are also going to double as the place card holders. We also got personalized cigars and little vanilla ones for the girls. Lastly I also got pashminas for all the ladies.

    By the way the suggestion on the side pony tail is definitely I am going to consider. I have to wait till October until my trial so in the mean time the hair inspiration binder just keeps growing lol

    Where did you find your mariachi? How much are you guys paying? We're looking for a 5-7man group but we were quoted $900...is that too high?

In the email I said, "I wasn’t sure how this would work out being that we are at different hotels and I believe our weddings are at the same time. Please let me know for I have 7 girls (this includes me) who are confirmed for hair and make-up so I don’t want to find out at the last minute if there has been a change, it’s just too many people to leave in limbo".

      I received an email back just asking if I was having photos done before the wedding, cause if I was he would come around 10:30 then and we would be ready by 2:00. He didn’t say anything about another bride or wedding. I had to put a $435 deposit down. Not sure how it will work out…….I can’t get to nervous about this or worry too much. I am sure everything will work out in the end. Although the hair and makeup is the most important part for me as well. Worst comes to worst we will be taking a ride to the MAC in Cancun

      Chipotle99, How many girls do you have
      That is so funny, I was going to book Ivan to DJ at my reception, but last minute the resort said they wouldnt allow it. (outside vendor restrictions) He is such a nice guy! Wow, we've been planning the same wedding LOL
      AHAHHA we have been great minds think a like :)

      I booked it through the Royal and they are $700 for a 7 person mariachi. $900 that is insane!!! I asked my outside WC Yazmin and she quoted me at $550 for a 7 person. But with the $100 outside vendor fee to save $50 and go through the hassle we just stayed with the one for the resort.

        I thought $900 was insane for Mexico! $550 sounds more like it. Can you send me Yazmin's contact information?

        Thanks!!

            Hi girls! I am getting married on November 5th at Hotel Marina El Cid. You guys are WAY more organized that we are, but we're planning to get started with everything soon. We have outfits for everyone, people are already starting to book, but we have to send out invites, plan flowers, choose our menu, plan activities, and find a photographer, hair stylist, etc. Plus we need to choose our honeymoon location! That being said I would LOVE some suggestions on photographers, florists, activities (we wanted to charter a boat to take everyone on a sailing trip). You girls all seem to have done your homework. I'd love try to share decorations/photographers if that's an option. Our colors are black, white, cream, and peach. Any help would be amazing!! We've been engaged for a year at the end of the month and I feel like we've hardly done any planning...oops :)

              I would highly recommend Catamaya for your sailing trip! :::::::::: CATAMAYA :::::::::: We went in January and it was so awesome! The boat is beautiful and the crew couldn't have been more fun. Everyone who wanted to went snorkeling (all gear provided of course) and others just swam off the back of the boat. It was a sunset cruise so they went under power to the snorkeling place, then sailed back towards the sunset. It was gorgeous! I will post some pics later as I am off to an appt now. Oh, and they sail out of Puerto Aventuras, just south of Playa.

              :) Michelle

                Aaaah, ladies. So I am JUST now focusing on getting in shape and I'm freaking out!!!!

                What are you guys doing to drop those extra pounds? Any exercise systems/videos that you would recommend? I am aiming to lose 10 lbs in 3 months so I can have enough time to get my dress altered before we go!

                  I just started P90X and let me tell you, it is CRAZY!! Youll definitely lose 10lbs and more. If thats not for you, I did Weight Watchers for 6mos and lost about 30lbs while on it. 10lbs isnt a lot, you can definitely drop the lbs just by changing your diet. GL!

                    my FI is doing the px90 and I can not believe the results! it really is amazing but a lot of work and you need to have the time to do it.

                    I did weight watchers plus going for a 45 minute jog everyday and alternate with a 45 minute power walk and weights. I lost the 30 lbs I gained over the last 5 years that we dated lol

                      weight watchers is definitely good for losing weight...changing your diet is the best way to see results...the jillian michaels 30 day shred is awesome too :)
