      Jill-
      You look fabulous! I'm so jealous that you have you pictures back already! It was great meeting you, your husband, and Hailey. And I'm so glad to hear things went well for you guys!


      So what's with Dream and the chair bows? Mine were wrong too!

      Wonderful review Jill, I had butterflies while I was reading it LOL. I am so happy all the major stuff worked out. I too forgot about my cake topper, oh well. It seems you were pretty laid back which is a good thing for sure

      Your tables looked beautiful. Your flowers were gorgeous as well. Your pic of coco-locos makes me miss them as they were my fave drink too. YUMMY! Gosh your lil girl looked adorable in her dress with the flowers. I think her hair looks awesome. YOU look so beautiful... everythign turned out great. I want more pics... please?

        Great review, Jilly!!! I have to admit, I laughed pretty hard when I read about your airport experience. lol, I love that you had scoped out the guy with the gun, good thinking!

        That sucks that you had so many issues with Claudia, but at the end of it you looked amazing, and so did everything else! I agree, your daughter's hair looks very nice; she looks beautiful. :)

        Please try to figure out how to show us that video! I'd love to see it! I have to ask; now that you've seen your video, do you think paying for a videographer is worth it?? I know a lot do, but I'm not sure... and coming from someone who didn't even KNOW they were going to receive one, I'd like to know what your thoughts are.

        Again, great review, thanks for posting it. Even though I'm not a Cancun bride, it's still nice to hear your story! Welcome back, we sure missed you around here. :)

            Yeah, I don't get the chair bows thing either! Maybe because Citlalli has been sick, that could be why your pictures are delayed, I can't wait to see yours!

            I never really thought a video was necessary so I just wanted the one included with the package. But for some reason I thought it was just going to be raw footage and I figured it wouldn't be very good, but good enough to show the people that couldn't make it. But he did such a great job, I was totally surprised. Steve actually said he liked the video better than the pictures and he didn't want a video either.

            I think the video is nice if you want to show it to people when you get back. Ours shows prior to the ceremony, the ceremony, and then he came with us while we did pictures, so there is no reception on it, which I don't think is necessary anyway.

            I don't think I would have missed it, if we had gotten a crappy video, but its nice to have a good one. I'd say if you could afford to have someone video for about 30 minutes, thats really all you need.

            I'll try to figure out how to post it.


            Thank you everyone for your kind words! I was so HOT in my dress that I felt so sweaty and was worried about looking really sweaty in the pictures. I loved my dress, but kind of wish I had looked at lighter, flowier dresses, so that I would have been cooler.
