Ladies, you all ROCK!
I just read through all 12 pages of posts and each one was so helpful.
Melissa, I was tearing up when you walked down the aisle in your video! Gorgeous. Thank you for posting - it def allowed most of us to see what the whole beach ceremony set up is at Azul.
We are getting married on 5/5/12 - Cinco de Mayo! Very excited.
We are getting married at 4PM - any other ABH brides select that time and were okay with it? Was the sand too hot? Our wedding coordinator insists it won't be.
I love the ideas about bringing table runners and sheers. I can't get over spending $300 for two colored sheers! Craziness. I might look into bringing chair bows too.
Those who are doing favors, do you plan on shipping them down ahead of time? Not sure what we are doing yet. We are both musicians, so I'm thinking mix CDs. (not very Mexican-ish, but whatevs)
Also, I decided to do Mexican fans made out of yellow cloth and black lace for the bridesmaids instead of flowers to save money and also tie in some cultural tradition. They are avail on lands-faraway.com for $20 each! Saving $40 instead of flowers for $60 each was pretty attractive too. It'll be a cute keepsake for my ladies too. I'm planning on carrying a white one.
