    If you cant open the templates just send me your email address and I'll be happy to send them to you. If I attach them in an email here you still wont be able to open them.

      Just putting the final touches on the wedding playlist! I cant believe we fly out tomorrow!!! My FI is being so good about the weight of the bags we have 3 suitcases and his golf clubs between us and the kids and each one is right at 50lbs! We are cutting it close. LOL

      I just can't wait to be checked in and get a drink in my hand!

            I just had the best idea ever! Ok but this may only work if you're willing to compromise. 

            If you have 6 tables or less (or lots of bridal party people) get them to set up the centerpieces during the cocktail hour. Get them to bring the centerpiece stuff to the ceremony (stashed in bags in the corner, use the OOT tote bags for camouflage) and then after the ceremony get them to run over to the reception area to set them up. If they do it AFTER the venue is set up but BEFORE the guests get there you should able to pull it off without paying super REDICULOUS fees. 

            This won't work for everyone but if your venues are really close together and the centerpieces are simple this should help. Like using Tucan Beach and Tucan Terrace.

             

            Ex. Vase and fake flower bouquet per table with a few votives (will take under 5 minutes to set out). Don't light candles until lights go down. 

            Ex. Chair sashes, 10 per table, simple bow. (3-5 minutes. 2 minutes if they move their butts).

             

            Im not talking about strolling around at a saunter here. I'm talking about being wedding party NINJAS. Rush over, whip em out, get back to the party. Are they REALLY going to stop you? Pull everything off the tables?

             

            Are you REALLY going to let them completely get away with highway robbery? I say fight back for the dignity of your wallet!

             

            *Note: this really depends on the level of fanciness of your wedding. I'm pretty sure mine will just be a week long drunk fest so I'm not worried about pulling out a few ninja moves. Everyone will be too hammered to notice anyway.

                    Also try the Reef (I think that is what it is called)!  we had it at the Sun Palace so I imagine the Moon Palace has it as well.  And the Mango Tango's are also THE BEST!!  but once you order one, you will notice the rest of the people at the swim up bar will order one too, haha.  My fiance loves the Dirty Banana!  

                     

                    Good luck and congrats!!!!  :)

                      I'm so jealous that you are done with your projects!  I have so much to do still!  Thanks so much for ALL your help and can't wait to meet down there!   Yay!!!!  its so close!

                      At 35 days until our BIG day, and 30 days before we leave for Mexico, my DIY lab is officially closed   Now I'm on to taking pictures of how we would like things set-up in order to give to our coordinator upon our meeting, packing and chilling.

                       

                      BDW along with this particular forum has been a great great great thing!  BIG to my LADIES: PalaceBride2012, LadyDi1844, Jamie5280, Krsmith, Beatyea, SummerDawn, Steph and a few others.  It's hard to remember your username since I know your names by heart ;-)  If I have forgotten anyone, please charge it to my head and not my heart.  I love you ladies and look forward to meeting most in Cancun or in NY later this year.

                       

                      In either case, I wish each of you a wonderful & magnificent wedding.  This site is full of great information and can at times be over whelming.  Seek your vision along with your FI and go for it! As my time is short, I will be on the forum less and less as I'm now finalizing things for our departure etc.  however; I will continue to pay it forward and either do a Planning thread (if times permits on the front end) and/or a MP review upon my return.

                       

                      MP has changed so much from the genesis of our planning in late 2010 until now.  So make sure that you get things in writing and please know that unfortunately, what may apply to one bride may not necessarily apply to another especially if you have a different coordinator.  So you can imagine the difference in packages/information from 2012 to 2013.

                       

                      For those getting married after the Colin Cowel packages begin, it may be worth it with all the fees that I see that the are trying to charge for set-up. 

                       

                      Take care, plan well and have an awesome wedding.
