No, none of them are married. I'm just trying to move forward at this point and focus on more important things like our ceremony. Thanks for the encouraging words!
AlmostMrsRJF- I cannot believe they did that!!! Are they like BFF's that are not married?!?! Cause no one that has had their own wedding would act like that!!! Luckily- all my bridesmaids are picking out their own style dress, so this was not an issue for me. I am so sorry they are acting so immature!!!!
Wow! I was wondering what the charge to make a reservation for the restaurant for the welcome dinner. I'm thinking showing up the day of will work out better. Then you everyone can just order what they want.

Might just show up on the day of instead.
Thanks for the idea to just show up! That's what we'll be doing with our group. Right now, I believe we'll have 17. It is ridiculous that they want to charge you for a big party.

(I put together a set menu that my guests chose from, and then I got what they wanted for an appetizer, entree, and dessert, and sent that list to her.) IT WAS GREAT! I highly recommend it. It's not outdoors but indoors.
You also mentioned you didn't qualify for free events. We didn't either. For our welcome dinner, we just had everyone meet at the restaurant without a reservation. (I got there about an hour early with my bridesmaids to start getting tables for us.) We did ours at Los Caporales - right next to Arrecifes. Maybe if you can't decide between these two restaurants, one of them can be for the welcome dinner, and the other for the reception dinner?
Hope this helps!
Hola, chicas! Finally back at work after the wedding and honeymoon! Woohoo! You may now officially address me as Mrs. Arnote (although it still sounds weird to hear it). I will write a review as soon as a can get done sorting through all these pictures and uploading for family. Everything was beautiful, well organized, etc. I did show Kalena my emails when I met with her, and she told me Miami was incorrect, so plans changed a little once we were down there. Small things, like we changed from the beach to the gazebo. Nevertheless, be patient with them and roll with the punches. As soon as I met Kalena, I loved her, and I did not spend another minute worrying about the wedding after the meeting. There ended up being a note waiting for me at check-in letting me know when to meet with her. My advice, don't even worry about trying to get ahold of Miami. It's a waste of time. Also, we used Photos in Cancun, and I couldn't be more happy. They were absolutely wonderful, and gave me 3 DVDs (we did 4 hour wedding packaged and TTD) with about 2,500 pictures total. It has taken me like, 10 hours to look at them all. I'm done hogging the page now, but I thought I'd put up a few pictures to tide you girls over. Keep in mind these haven't been editted, yet. Oh, and Alberto did my hair and makeup. I didn't even have to request him. I think he did an absolutely fabulous job. And the wind is 5 times worse than everyone says. My bangs blew into my eyes the entire ceremony.
CONGRATS TO ALL THE MS.THAT BECAME MRS !!!!!!!
