Hi! Great Idea! I'm getting married in Todos Santos, Baja Sur at a place called Alegria. I choose this place because of the great weather not too hot juts right and it is a very small quaint town.

I'm actually having a gorgeous dress made from very very high thread count egiptian cotton. Like the sheets, we all like how they feel right? Well my dress is great!

I'm having a great time planning my wedding it is going to be a great fiesta atmosfere.

One great idea that my coordinator had for little gifts for your guests. Have pretty little cloth bags with wribbon ties to match your color scheme (mine are silvery green with a buttery cream color) stuff with traditional mexican candy. One great candy is the chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil and stamped with the mexican eagle. I'm using those but there are many different unusual candies.

Congratulations and have fun!

I am not getting married but was married in Mexico two years ago. If anyone has any quesitons let me know.

We provided all our guests a 'goodie bag' upon arrival. It contained a nice welcome note, a schedule of events for the weekend and a lot of information about the area. In the bag we included the following: disposable camera, gel hand sanitizer, gum, mexican candy, tissues, spf lip balm, a small candle and I'm drawing a blank on the rest, and I made a CD with a cd label on the front with our engagement picture. On the CD was about 12 of our favorite 'love songs' and a video collage of pictures of us growing up, meeting, getting engaged, ect to the tune of Louis Armstrong's What a wonderful world.

I just remembered that when I was planning my wedding I used a website called www.ultimatewedding.com. There is a forum for desitnation weddings. Mostly brides for Vegas and the Bahamas but very good stuff.

I am getting married in Puerto Aventuras in May and I've always wanted to get married somewhere hot, but I've also always wanted a big dress, so I have bought a strapless full princess dress and am wearing a hoop, as this will let air get to my legs. Just wondering how I'm going to get it there now...

Have a great wedding
