KayLynn, I'm bringing the same items with me for my OOTB!  My wedding is a week after yours, so i'll be interested in hearing how your experience was.  Are you printing receipts?

They asked why we were coming to Mexico, we said we were getting married, and they said "congratulations!" and we walked through. It was a breeze!

 

I have a LOT more to say, but please rest assured that everything was beyond lovely and there were absolutely NO problems. Gloria is a literal angel sent from the heavens. I'm planning to post a longggg review as soon as we're back in the US, but for now here's a teeny tiny sneak peek of our wedding on our photographer's website: http://www.schwagerandhanks.com/2013/06/fort-worth-wedding-photographer-rhiannon-shaun-excellence-riviera-cancun/

You look absolutely AMAZING and so happy!!  I can't wait to hear all of the details.  Also, so glad to know Gloria is a wonderful as she seems!!  Congratulations Mr & Mrs!!

Congrats Rhiannon! So excited to hear that things are going well! I just sent Gloria dinner choices and flower choices.

Also, instead of a big cool OOT bag, we decided to do personalized (with the guests initials) insulated tumblers for all the guests. We'll still put them in gift bags and may add a wine/bottle opener or something else small. I'm also making all the ladies barefoot jewelry, as there will only be about 12 women attending.  Hope they like them!!

I will definitely let you know as soon as we get back!!  I am bringing receipts just in case but hopefully we will breeze through like everyone else.  I'm thinking that they see so many weddings coming and going there that it's probably not that big of a deal!  Good luck with everything! Can't wait!  Less than 2 weeks!! :)

Quick question...a guest of mine is asking if ERC has vendors come in for shopping?  They did this at another resort I stayed at a few years ago.  I think she doesn't want to leave the resort but still wants to buy souviners.  Thanks!

Hi all! I'm trying to decide the venue for my reception - Barcelona Restaurant vs the Foyer! Foyer seems to have nicer lighting, but it's not air-conditioned like Barcelona. Not sure how hot it will get in November... Any advice? Thanks!

    • 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.
