Wow, am I the only bride going to Mexico so I don't have to plan out my wedding day? I was just glad I had decided on a time for the wedding by now! I feel like maybe I should be figuring this out now...

wow- you girls are so organized!! I haven't even thought about it-- did resort people help with this!?!?!

 

Here's what I would have so far....

 

- determined to not get out of bed before 9AM- even if awake

- coffee, coffee, coffee- with maybe a mimosa (or 2!) in between the coffees

- have room service/breakfast delivered to room

- have "wine bath"spa treatment at Spa- 50 minutes- scheduled for 10:00AM

**at this point, hoping to avoid most everyone--I'm weird, but want this morning to just be me by myself to get my head straight... the FI is spending the night before in his best friends' room (though we've lived together for 5 years- hehe).

- shower and meet everyone at hair salon/spa at 12:30PM for hair appt(s).

- photog arrives at 2:30PM

- guests are seated from 3:30-3:45

- ceremony is from 4-4:30PM

- private white glove cocktail party at Giovatas(sp?) from 4:30-6PM-take more pix!

- dinner at Fuentes from 6-8PM

- private chocolate fondue party/cake cutting/reception at covered pool from 8-11PM

- photog left at 9PM.

- me and FI go back to room (for "free" decorated jacuzzi and champagne)- friends will probably get in trouble at resort bar until 2AM.....

 

 

I definitely have some work to do-- but it got me thinking!! good post! :)

What's the wine bath spa treatment and you're not weird at all for wanting to spend some quality alone time! :-)

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
