I'm in semi crisis mode this afternoon, our photographer cancelled this morning! cry.gif I'm so disappointed! I'm not really fond of what I've seen of the resorts photographer and they are soo expensive to top it all off. So the hunt begins to see if I can find someone else for May.

 

Wish me luck!

AD2012,

Check out our photographer, Derek. He is the owner of Photos in Cancun, advertised on this site. His work is really nice, he gets back to you right away. He is actually originally from Toronto. You get him and Lorena(another photographer) for the price you would normally pay for 2. Read some of his reviews. We are getting the 1000$ package for four hours. I will also post our photos as soon as we have them in January.

 

Good Luck!

I did make one for every guest but i only had 30 people....they were soooooooooo tedious UGH i love them and they were loved by the guests but if i had 90 guests i would NOT make one for each guest. all the cutting and assembly takes a long time.  I think one every second seat (so per couple) would be plenty! When i did see them used as fans, it was by the women LOL....I also ended up not putting them on the seat and putting it in the bows on the chairs which worked nicely. If i were you, i would just be handing them to the women or putting them on every second seat or you will spend your whole weekend making them.

Thank you hun! That pic was actually on a catamaran. We arranged to rent it for a few hours and the gentlemen that owned it was fantastic. If you are interested, i can give you his info. he is actually from France living in DR :)  He will arrange for a taxi to pick you up and drop you off at the resort. We went to an amazing area about 45 minute catamaran ride where the ocean was about 3 feet deep with an amazing backdrop. We took some great pics there and then went back to the resort pool and beach for more pics. This was where we went on the catamaran.

I think if you started dress shopping January you would still be ok. I purchased my dress in late March for my October wedding. My dress came in August and sat there until i did alterations in late September :) dont stress. I do recommend starting to look online and mags and maybe tearing out the dresses and styles you like to bring along with you when you start to dress shop. Even though some of what you think might look great on you may not it will at least give your sales associate something to start with :) I think its great that you have your jewelry but dont be surprised if you find your dress and change your mind on your earrings :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
