    I think we were lucky too... Roberto and I went to the marina a couple days in advance and bought the pre-paid marina tax tickets. We put them in everyone's OOT bags, which we distributed at the welcome party on the night before the wedding. At that party, we made sure to tell everyone to take a taxi to the marina terminal (that's where we took off from... I know some go from Nuevo Vallarta) and we told them not to be late or they'd miss the boat! No one had any trouble at all, and we had people at about 8 different hotels.

    When I arrived in the morning with my girls, Kelley was there and located us right away (I must have been obvious as the girl carrying the big white dress). Kelley took the catamaran back with the day tour group around 2:00 and she was there at the marina waiting for our guests when they were arriving. Roberto said they had no problems at all (except for his one poopy brother who is a big f-ing baby and came to Puerto Vallarta but didn't come to the wedding because he was mad about something with the hotel -
    i must have got lucky! when we showed up with the one taxi full of the girls going early, Nicole was there to meet us so we never had to look for anything. then i didn't hear of any issues with the rest of the group either, but they all arrived by pre-arranged bus together, except for 2 other couples.

      Sorry to hijack but I had to comment. That's almost unbelievable but I've learned that people go nuts at the slightest things sometimes so this is just another example! I hope it didn't anger your hubby (or you!) too much that day.

        I wonder if they always meet the people at the marina then? Kelly didn't meet us until we were walking onto the boat so we kinda had to find our way around the marina. I know they didn't meet our guests either. I wonder if it has to do with party size. We only had 20 people.

          That's a great idea to get the marina tax slips in advance!

          Thanks for the tip.

            Omg my mom was so nervous...we got ours in advance and gave them out at our WD the night before, and she kept saying people were going to lose them or forget them. I was like look, they can pay $2 and get another one if they do...no big deal...haha Gotta love moms!

                Haha - my mom was really nervous too - she was worried that when we went over in the morning, there might be a big storm or some reason the boat with the rest of the guests couldn't come over - and the wedding wouldn't happen...lol

                I told her she worries too much!! The day ended up being perfect! LOL

                    I am cracking up at the nervous mom stories, I'll have to tell mine she wasn't alone. She was also worried that a guest would get too drunk & fall off the boat. She even suggested we not serve alcohol on the ride back for this reason...in the end she was doing tequila shots on the ride back!

                    For the record Nicole said nobody ever fell overboard, but once they thought they lost a drunk GM but found him curled up asleep in some cubby on the boat..haha

                      Ok Jamy- I'm as bad as your mom. LOL I asked Nicole if anyone has fallen off because of all the pics I saw, I was really worried that some dumbass would dance their way right off the boat. I mean really- there is only a rope there! I didn't even go close to it and it made me nervous to watch people dance at the front. I obviously needed to be drunk. :)
