Wow - Holy moly - OMG - Perfection
We just got back from our wedding week at Secrets Silversands in Riviera Maya, Mexico. It was ABSOLUTELY amazing. Looking back I can't imagine having done anything different than what we did! We had a perfect wedding, an amazing time with all of our friends and family who made the trip with us, and now we have fantastic memories that we wouldn't .
That said - when we arrived Dave and I locked our phones and cameras in the safe - so very few of these photos were taken by us....thanks to the people who actually kept their technology around and documented this week!
Here we go with the "Pre-wedding" activities :-)
We booked our travel through a travel agent, thank goodness, because as the bride I definitely didn't need more on my plate! Not to mention since we ran into a few snags (airline issues, not travel agent issues) I was glad to have someone else to help me through the problems! (If you're in Maine and looking for a great travel agent, Susan Gildart with AAA Travel in Bangor is fantastic).
So....our flight got delayed from JFK to Cancun - which wasn't a big deal except that it was delayed for 4 HOURS. Grrr. They also had me shove my wedding dress in the overhead compartment.....I've NEVER seen this happen before, and was furious. Way to go JetBlue.
When we finally arrived - and navigated the Cancun airport to get our shuttles to the hotel - it was TOTALLY worth it. Amazing.
When we finally got checked into our room we explored this gorgeous property - man am I glad we booked here!
The resort assigned us a "wedding planner" to coordinate all of the wedding details - FYI to anyone thinking about having a destination wedding, be flexible with your details and enjoy being able to relax. Things won't go as you planned and "outlined in your contract", but it will still be amazing, and isn't worth the stress.
We just enjoyed the pools and food for the first few days!
We had our wedding rehearsal on the beach, of course - but the best part of it is we just jumped out of the pool and walked down to the beach. Talk about relaxing!
We partied our bums off before the wedding - I can't wait to share the actual wedding photos!
Next up - Wedding day!!
