After much discussion, plans may have changed YET AGAIN. But I'm not upset. Actually, I'm pretty excited!

As you all may know, when Luis left to do his immigration process in Mexico, we flew to Cancun, had four great days together, and then left each other at the airport in the saddest moment of my life thus far.

From there, things were a crazy roller coaster, ending in the cancellation of our church wedding and an impromptu courthouse wedding.

Well, we resumed planning for a 'big, church wedding' last July and in April 2011, realized that financially, it wasn't feasible. So we canceled again and started looking at other options. I realized that I was being super selfish by insisting on having both the civil and the religious weddings here in the US, knowing full well that the chances of his family members getting visas to come were slim to none. So we looked at Mexican options.

We wanted to get married in his hometown, but due to it's location about four hours by car outside of Mexico City...and my parents' complete lack of Spanish-speaking ability...he said maybe it wasn't a great choice...and so...

We are now considering a destination wedding in Cancun!!! A good friend of mine is a destination wedding planner and she has been sending me all kinds of goodies, but my favorite by far is this chapel right here! It's the Capilla de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe!

I completely understand the financial issue with a throwing a big wedding in the U.S. I think a destination wedding is an awesome idea! You can marry in the chapel and have the reception back at the resort or at a restaurant. Your guests will definitely enjoy being in Cancun :)

Thanks, ladies! It's funny, people either love this idea or they hate it. I've heard both good and bad about this resort...I'm hoping we can check it out in August and see what we think. I'm attaching two other chapels I kind of like, but this one is absolutely my favorite!
