    I no I got that as well, people just assumed I would just go for a light dress but no way, it's the only dress I'll ever wear!!

    On that note, I'm also willing to sell my dress if anyone is on the look out! :-)

      i have a question about the time of your wedding.. how hot was it? we're getting married at 4pm on the beach and we're not slightly concerned about the heat and considering changing to a gazebo for the shade. but i really wanted to get married on the sand, but i just can't make my mind up! haha! help!
      Whe I left to get my hair done at 12, it was soo warm, I was worried at that point. But I stayed in the air con until the horse and carriage came...I honestly can't remember feeling uncomfortable at all...I think ur too excited!! At least that's what I was like..and the sand was never soo warm u couldn't walk on it, not like Spain or whatever, so don't worry, stick with 4pm it'll be fine!

          lol i've been asking my photographer that too!lol no I have been patiently waiting because I know they will be amazing when they come, plus Citlalli did say it was between 6-8 weeks before pictures would be ready, sometimes a bit longer during peak season. But me being me needed an update, and they are almost done!yeah!! So won't be much longer...depending on the postal service right enough!

          I'll be honest and say I think it will be too windy for hair down - even in the gazebo. We had a videographer booked right up til the last few weeks of our wedding planning, when we swapped that money over to the firedancers, so we don't have proper footage of the wedding. However one of our guests tried her hardest to get as much footage as poss for us, and we watched it the other weekend. It reminded me of how windy it was. My veil was blowing about the place in the gazebo and at the beach for the photos. But in saying that, as long as your hair isn't too short, you could position yourself against the wind and fight it...the ceremony isn't that long?! That sounds mad doesn't it...but its your wedding day, don't let the wind get in your way!! I have naturally curly hair, but had my hair back, with my side fringe...my hair is hilarious!! In the room getting ready...gorgeous, perfect even....in the gazebo and on the beach for photos...weird, but still straight...reception...ohmigawd!!! curly and messy...just soo bad...and I didn't even know!! Didn't think to carry a mirror around with me, and didn't need a toilet break and didn't think to go to the bathroom...jjeeezz!! Damn heat!!hahaha

                  I was just reading over your LeBlanc Review (I don't think it was up when I read your review the first time), so disappointing. FI and I are having our wedding MP and then heading over to LeBlanc for our "Mini-Honeymoon" for a couple of days. My FMIL is a TA and set this up for us and she is very excited for us about it. From everything I looked at, it doesn't look that much better than MP but the price is A LOT different. I think I would have preferred The Royal but oh well we aren't paying for it so I can't really complain! We just wanted a separate resort, I would have been happy with Beach Palace or Cancun Palace and there wouldn't have been an up charge.

                  Thanks for the info though.

                    Waw it sounds like your plans are similar to mine...good choice!hehe I think if you aren't paying for it then you'll LOVE it! But we paid all that extra money for LeBlanc, and even the staff at MP were saying how they'd love to work at LeBlanc because its a different class...but I just didn't notice a huge enough difference. Don't get me wrong, the place is spotless, soo gorgeous and modern, but the service really isn't any better than what we got at MP...the rooms are definitely smaller, and I suppose we were spoilt at MP not having anyone above us or really next door either, but still, all the promo palace resorts do trying to make LeBlanc stand out from all other palace resorts (I mean it isn't even advertised properly on the palace resorts website because it has its own...whats that all about?!) you'd expect the rooms to at least be sound proof...no!?

                    Anyway, don't let my review make you nervous, because I think I may be the only negative review in the history of the place!! If you don't believe me check out trip advisor!lol I just think we were spoilt at MP having our dream wedding with all our family, we just didn't want to leave them! :)
