@@upstatekj you are welcome!  The weather was pretty good for the majority of the time.  It was about mid to high 80's and high 70's at night with pretty decent humidity! It only rained a lot one day and just in the morning (we were on our way to the cenotes and by the time we go there it had stopped).  It would randomly rain for 10-15 min and then go away.  The weather reports were always worse then what ended up happening.  There was a really cool lighting show the night of our wedding, it was far away so it didn't affect us, just had a nice breeze which kept us cool!

@@Sabes44 the pics are so cute! Your hair/makeup looked flawless, did you get it done at the spa? How was that?

 

Also the bouquet came out GREAT!! Did you pick one of the options or give her photos?

@@victoriasalv - Thank you!!  I got both my hair and make up done there.  It was so great!  Angel did both and he was amazing and super quick!  I brought a bunch of picks of make up and hair ideas (pretty much the same thing, with slight variations) and had my sister and a few friends help narrow is down.  Unfortunately, he told me my hair wasn't thick enough for what I wanted lol.  But he made something similar happen and it looked exactly like I wanted from the front (which is the most important to me anyways).  

 

Honestly, the bouquet was so so much better than I expected!!  I had sent her a picture of what I had wanted and she said they could do something similar (just orange lilies and bright pink daises).  Jessica said they couldn't do turquoise flowers but the could do a turquoise ribbon (it was more blue than turquoise, but I didn't care).  So when I got the bouquet with the blue flowers and extra greenery I was thrilled!  I had even brought some fake turquoise and fillers just in case, but didn't even need them.

@@Sabes44 Well Angel did a fantastic job! I'm always anxious about other people doing my hair/makeup especially if I know i'll be in a bunch of pictures but its good to have a good endorsement!

 

Did you have to pay more for your bouquet because it wasn't something that was part of your package? I know they sent me a bunch of "options" but I wasn't sure...

 

It looked gorgeous!

Oh and this one goes out to all the brides, I read back and back a few pages ago that some ladies left items there for future brides to use, did any of you girls ask about this? Does this still exist, I know I plan to leave a few things!

Since the flowers were similar to another bouquet the offered, I didn't have to pay.  I just asked her if they could do what I wanted and sent a picture.  Since none of the flowers in the bouquet were "upgraded" flowers they were able to do it. 

 

I am always nervous about my hair and make up too and although it rarely turns out exactly how I planned in my head I always end up loving it and it looks perfect for the pictures.  Although nothing major went wrong there were a few hiccups (very minor ones!) and every time something weird happened we just said "It's Mexico!" and let it go.

    • 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.
