What everybody says is true..everything will come together and the day goes by pretty quickly! It's been pouring rain all day today. My family just left so Tim and some of his friends just came down to the sports bar to watch football and I decided to hop on the computer and say hi. I don't even know where to begin telling about everything. Michael turned out to be great and the other wedding of the day cancelled so he even came with us to Evita's for the reception and then when we got back to the resort we decided to jump in the pool swim to the swim up bar do some shots hop out and run straight into the sea. He was there to photograph all of that as well. We didn't plan on trashing the dress but I mentioned the idea of jumping in the pool in my wedding gown and everybody thought it was great. They all followed us. Michael took over 800 pictures which we viewed last night and narrowed down to 390 we are going to view them again tomorrow to decide what prints and digital files we are getting. He signs over the copyright to the pics and gives us permission to reprint. Our wedding video is done and we already have it.
Evita's food was fantastic. Everybody was raving about it. Our cake was delicious (Future Bakery). The reggae band that played at our reception was unbelievable too.
I can't tell you how fabulous everything has been and I highly highly recomend Lee's Taxi and Tours.

Yay! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time! I can't wait to hear ALL the details and of course see the pics. That's so fun that you jumped in the pool in your dress. And I'm happy to hear that Michael was great too, that's a relief. Enjoy the rest of your time there!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
