    @calgarybride2015 haha we eventually figured it out..thankfully! lol


    Yea.. I've been to Cancun 4 times now and i've never seen the water so strong before. The waves looked like waves in CABO lol. There were TONS of jellyfish. Every time my friends and I walked out into the ocean we could see them floating around us. Even when we went snorkelling too and it was in a completely different area of the ocean.  I don't think it's jellyfish mating season, but maybe they are starting early lol.

    Thanks @perianjay and @calgarybride2015 for the helpful tips and advice! You both know I've always favoured taking US dollars over pesos but I've smartened up and realized that it's stupid for me to choose to lose money!

    And ouch to jellyfish stings. I'll make sure to warn my guests, especially those with young kids

    As for strapless swimwear, I'm not too concerned since I have straps on my dress. The back is a deep V though so I have to be careful not to get dark tan lines. I figured that I'd just use a lot of sunscreen and wear a big floppy hat, especially leading up to the wedding!

      @Wafflesmom That's what I did too. I just wore a big hat and lots of sunscreen. I still tanned, but I didn't get any noticeable tan lines thankfully :)
