    OMG Really??!!!  I have been working everything out in dollars!!!!! My friend goes to Moon Palace next week & she told me that but I thought it was just for that hotel.  Do you know current exchange for peso's, it may work in our favour....wishful thinking!!

    Mexico brides have you all heard about the change for currency? My TA emailed me and all my guests yesterday to say that mexico will soon no longer accept US $. They will only take mexican pesos, hope this doesnt affect the cost of our weddings etc :(

      Our wedding was perfect i will deffo write a noval of a review on our return.

      Im writing this on my wedding gift from my wonderful hubby gotta love him a lap top as a wedding gift.

      Our families went home yesterday so we moved onto our apartment which is so gorgeous we didnt want to unpack and make it untidy.

      Now back to the wedding WOW Peligoni were fab to work with and we were happy with everything.

      I was so relaxed i was stood at the bottom of the pathway waving at our guests who were listening to our song choices.

      Amy ws waiting for her music to start and she turned around and said "Maria is that rain?"

      to which i replied Amy your not allowed to say that word"

      With that there music started and i sent the two girls on there way.

      I was still busy waving and my brother came down and asked me what wass wrong

      Nuffink i said all smiles and giddy and he made his way back up.

      As the girls were at the top of the pathway my three boys stood up and made there way down to me at that point i went to mush really trying not to cry.

      As they were almost there i felt a huge rain drop on my nose and that was it i was not gunna be rained on lol

      I felt that one drop of rain and that was it phew.!!!!!

      Reaching the altar i was greeted to Paul grinning but his shirt collor was tucked in.

      I redressed him which helped to stifle EVERYONES  tears.

      I remember every moment and loved that the ladies were waving there fans.

      The sand ceremony worked so im glad i went the ikea route.

      The vase that we were meant to pour the sand into wasnt there the Peligoni girls had stood the orchids that were meant to be in the goldfishbowls inside.So Sandra made a mad dash to grab the vase.

      I dont have any photos at the moment my brother took our pictures and im thrilled with what ive seen he took over 400 so we should have some good ones.

      I will catch up with you all whn im home.

      I hope your wedding days are as happy as ours

      Nighty nite xxx Mrs Newnham xxxx

          Re: Pesos and dollars I think this is just your hotel as our hotel is accepting dollars for the whole of 2011 I have just asked them.

           

          She said there is a rumour that the whole of Mexico wont accept the dollar after 13/09 but this is unfounded at the moment.  As they were saying this when I went 3 years ago.

           

          I hope it is a rumour the Pesos are worthless we would need to take a suitcase full of  money - lol!

            Congrats on the wedding date confirmation Josie that is wicked news. And not long to go for you now!!!!!!

             

            Kerry i prob got the same email as you from BlueBay. I will copy and post the main message so everyone can see.......

             

            We hope that you are looking forward to your upcoming holiday to Mexico. Before you travel we need to give you some important information about some new currency regulations that may affect you.

            As you may be aware, the US Dollar has been widely accepted across Mexico. We have recently received notification from the Mexican authorities that they have taken the decision to implement a new currency restriction. This restriction means that in the next few weeks/months the US dollar will no longer be accepted as a form of payment in shops, restaurants, bars etc¢â¬¦ This will also apply to any excursions you plan while in resort.

            Whilst in resort you will be able to exchange dollars into Pesos at banks, selected exchange bureaus and hotels, however there is a limit of $1500 per adult per stay.

            The compulsory departure tax can now be paid in Mexican Pesos, Sterling or Euros.

            Naturally, it is imperative that we let you know about these changes. If there is anything you are not sure about or would like further clarification on please contact us on the number below and select option 2.

            We hope that you have a very enjoyable holiday.

                Hi, still having my nightmare with the TA, so I decided to call myself ended up having to call Miami (sensatori wedding booking department) and my WC told me my date was 2nd August 2011 at 3pm and they was just waiting for the judge to confirm. So I went and told my TA and they went mad saying she shouldn't have told me that as it's not confirmed yet. I'm making a formal complaint about the thomsons wedding department though as everytime I've spoken to them they have been so rude. :-(
                I'm so confused! :-(
                On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

                  Sounds like its just your hotel still going to accept them! The other girls on here arent at the same hotel as me... Definately agree on the suitcase for the money - £1,500 is around 30,000 mexican pesos lol
