Recommended Posts

i had a couple of my girlfriends come by last night, and I pulled out my dress.....it put things into perspective I guess that in the end it's him and I. It just would be nice to have a little more support I guess!!! When it comes down to it, the people that really matter will be there, especially when familly has known for over a yr now that we were doing this......

Hi all..seems that so many of us are having problems nailing down the FI's friends and family. We have 28 people booked to come away which is amazing, however not one of my FI's friends have booked. His best friend who he'd asked to be his Best Man said he cannot come because he can't get the vacation time. FI then asked his other close friend who said 'yes' but then backed out because he's now planning to get married next summer and can't afford it. My FI is devastated and won't even talk to me about it anymore. It would great if at least one of his buddies finally came through! What's with men and this kind of stuff? It's so frustrating because my FI has so many friends that he does so much for and now it seems like they're all letting him down. The hardest part was when we originally started talking about a DW, EVERYONE was in. Now when push comes to shove all the excuses come out. Like I said, we have 28 guests already booked and we are thrilled with that, but I do feel aweful for my FI because most are from my side. Guess we're all in the same boat, hoping not to stress out about this stuff but I guess no one said it would be easy =)

I really like the words to this song, as it doesn't specify a relationship.

And the moments pass slow
And each road leads you
Where you want to go
And if you're faced with the choice
And you have to choose
I hope you choose the one
That means the most to you
And if one door opens to another
Door closed
I hope you keep on walkin'
Til you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the
World the warmth of your smile
But more than anything,
More than anything

CHORUS
My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that
You want it to
Your dreams stay big,
Your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you're out there gettin'
Where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but
You never forget
All the ones who love you
And the place you left
I hope you always forgive
And you never regret
And you help somebody every
Chance you get
Oh, you find God's grace in
Every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything,
Yeah more than anything

CHORUS
CHORUS

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big"

Hope some of these may help, or get you other ideas.
Let us know what you end up picking

Thanks so much for taking the time to look up songs! Actually I love Rascal Flatts and have this song on a cd (which I never realized!). We are actually thinking of Broken Road as or first dance. Will have to let you know what we finally decide.

I was hoping to get some of you girls advice of favours.

I am doing the OOT bags and I am spending $15 per couple and for the single guest I am also spend $15 p/p. really thought I'd only get maybe 10 people (5 couples maybe 1/2 single ppl) But now I realized I am having about 23-30 people so now the OOT bag are started to add up. I was also going to get lantern's for the dinner table favour. I was going to do this per couple as well and one for the single ppl. They are about 4$ and they are not the lightest thing. Are any of you girls doing OOT and a dinner table favour? If so what are you guys getting? I am thinking of reconsidering and just getting seashell candle holder and have those light up for dinner and then ppl can take that.

Any ideas? advice I would be so appreciated. Thanks so much!!

Tracy, I really liked the idea of oot bags, but I also have 30 people coming so my fiance and I decided not to do them. I'm gonna give out favours at dinner, I'll go buy a little something for everyone at the market on the beach, just a little thought and souvenir. I am also doing very simple centerpieces (plastic bol with water pearls and candles), just to add a little touch. I've been saying little alot LOL must be a sign to keep it simple LOL

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
