Congratulations!!!! I hope your day was really special! I would really love to see pictures of the Tucan Terrace if you get the chance. If you see any areas on property that would be great for bridal pictures let me know!!

 

Many thanks and enjoy your honeymoon!

My reception is on the Tucan Terrace too! I'd love to see pictures as well.

 

Hope you don't stress too much Jacqui, although I'm still 50 days out and have daily heart attacks lol...my poor groom. Who's your on-site coordinator?

I cry all the time. Last night my lovely FI sat with me patiently while I cried for 40 minutes. Thank goodness for our men! 

 

I don't know who my on-site is. I am waiting on that email today. I will let you know!! 

How is your planning going? I think we are ready to go. I will have to send you pictures of how we are doing the reception area!

Hi Ladies!

I was having the hardest time thinking of a clever guestbook for a destination wedding. I came across this on etsy and love it! My FI really likes it as well... he is hard to please at times!  We ordered it and can't wait to see it in person!

Is anyone having a reception in the ballroom? My wedding will be in june and we want our guests to be in the air conditioning.

 

We are using the Bugambilias gazebo for the ceremony. Is there a ballroom close that you'd recommend that doesn't appear to be dated. I know playacar palace ballroom has draping already do any have draping already at moon?

 

Also is there a terrace that is private and not by a gazebo/wedding location that I can use for the welcome party?

 

I plan to use the dinner reservation for the rehearsal dinner with bridal party and our close family members. Is there a restaurant that you recommend?

The Bugambilias gazebo is in a busier section of the resort than the Tucan gazebo with the lobbies for Sunrise and Nizuc close by. I think Nizuc might be closest and it's definitely the least busy out of the two. Maybe pick a ballroom in the Nizuc section? In any event be prepared for a lot of walking.

 

I don't really have any restaurant recommendations for you. I didn't really like the food at any of them but the Caribeno at Moon Grand was the best to me. It's also furthest away from everything so less busy.

 

I got married at the beginning of July and was shocked at how packed this resort was. Our wedding was fantastic but the sheer size of the place and crowds were not fun. Also for some stupid reason they put half of us in rooms next to the Moon Grand lobby and half in Sunrise meaning a 20 minute walk between the two.

Planning is going pretty good. I am sleeping better (no more night terrors, for now) and am trying to enjoy the process some what. My friend is supposed to be getting married in Cabo next week but everything has pretty much been ruined with the hurricanes so I'm trying to count myself grateful and not jinx anything for our side of Mexico!

 

Glad to hear your dress came! I went for a fitting on Wednesday and love my dress more and more everytime I try it on. It's Mori Lee 5108. What dress did you go with?

My dress is Allure 8800

Absolutely in love with it! I have my alterations appointment on Tuesday and should have it back by the end of the week! We have been packing and making detailed event sheets all day... I am feeling more and more prepared! 

LOVE your dress!!! I was too scared to try on any mermaid styles. My hips and thighs are a bit wide for that!! :)

Anyone having a bachelorette party on property?!! Would love to hear what you are doing if youa re planning one!

    • 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.
