        Keep us posted if you get the script for the symbolic ceremony... I live in Austin and am in the same boat as to "legalizing" the marriage. Not looking forward to it!

        I've honestly given up on receiving it from Lomas and am just writing it. I'll be happy to share it when I've gotten most of it done.

            Yayyyyyyy Allie- 16 days!!! :-)

             

            I'm still here reading all your stories, girls, I just haven't had that much time to post!! Ugh!

             

            Our final payments and RSVP and everything is due in November so I'm looking forward to crossing that bridge so that I can know and just accept how many people are coming, and start planning the details based on that. :) I've kind of held off on things because I have NO idea who is coming! Oh well- soon!!

             

            My FI and I also did the get married before thing.... We actually ended up getting married a couple of months ago (SO lame, but I"m self employed, so this way I can finally have health insurance that is affordable. We figured it was stupid to wait for no reason.) But we are pretending it didn't happen, and nobody knows about it lol but he does call me his wife sometimes which is cute. :-) I'm ready for it all to be a reality.... it is coming so soon- 4 more months (plus a little lol)!! Yay!!!

             

            I know Jill is in Mexico now, and Allie you go so soon... I can't wait to hear back from you girls how things go. I know you've been working hard with your budgets like I have been, so I'll be curious to hear what parts were essential and what wasn't so I know what areas I need to prioritize (Dj's, etc.) and what I don't have to fret so much over!!!

             

            Hope all is well with you girls!

            I keep googling "Wedding ceremony sample script", and it's coming back with some good samples. You may want to try that!!

             

            We have our appointment with the judge in the morning to finish the legal process here in TX.

             

            We leave in a whopping 16 days...I have butterflies.

              OK reading Allie's to do lists made me think of something....

               

               

              ....are any of you doing at home receptions?? I wasn't planning on it, but at the last minute here I"ve realized that none of my family can come (my mom recently got diagnosed with early onset alzheimers and it's just too much for her) and not many of my FI's friends can go, so I'm considering doing something at home, maybe in the summer? I'd want it to be casual, more like a party where we could play the video (I think I'm going to do the online video thing through Lomas where I think you get to keep a copy of hte video) and eat and drink and what not?

               

              This kind of made me think of the registry.... I am not registering, but was thinking that I almost wonder if I shoudl consider it if we're going to have an AHR? Or if we shoudl just keep it as is and be greatful that some people are joining us in Mexico as our gift. Just a thought....

                We are getting married in 22 days!!!!

                Please help me decide what to do!!!:)

                I have been going back and forth forever trying to decide to have a private recption dinner or just have the El Cocotal wedding dinner!! I just don't want to spend the extra $ on the private dinner.. We are very low key and I think doing the El Cocotal will be simple and then we can all just go to Guacamayas Bar and party all night!

                Also I have gazebo 55 booked but I think I may change my mind to fuentes or the white gazebo on the beach.... 

                 

                What do you girls think?!

                  We used the El Cocotal dinner for a semi-private dinner for our wedding party. You are literally eating dinner right next to other diners that are not in your party and they split us up into 3 tables, so I found myself getting up quite a bit to talk to everyone since I did not want to raise my voice loud enough to disturb other diners. I would say because of this, I would recommend a private reception. Since the price is based on what food you select, you can keep costs down by ordering the lower priced menu options. Just my opinion!

                  We aren't doing an AHR. Mostly because our friends and family don't live near us, so it would mean traveling anyway. I do like the idea of doing a BBQ or potluck or something like that as a casual gathering to celebrate with local folks who can't make mexico (and maybe even some that can!!).

                   

                  You should totally register somewhere. Even if noone asks you or buys from it, you can get a 10% or 15% (or even 20% sometimes at Macy's) discount on items you register for, up to 6 months after your wedding. I've told most of my friends who are traveling that I do not expect gifts... and of course some gave them anyway. I was also surprised when my Uncle & his wife gave us all of the towels we registered for - yes, I'm excited about new towels! lol
