i'd definitely do this! print out the email she sent with the picture you attached and make sure it's no more than $350. honestly, i think the $350 includes flowers. their centerpieces are $90 (!!!!!!!) and i have to believe that they've got this setup and the fabric hanging around some where and if you don't add any extras they just put it up and take down the arch. maybe that's wishful thinking though? :) i plan on asking my WC (once one gets assigned to me) what the price will be w/out flowers and then i'll let you guys know!

Thanks ash! Yea I think I'll be okay for my date. I was thinking to put it in November, outside of hurricane season but I don't want to wait that long to be married and I like the thought of celebrating my anniversary in summer rather than winter. Having said that, I still haven't put it together yet! There is something really daunting about it...or maybe I am on BDW too much and never get around to it :P Gonna try and tackle it now.

Finally booked the hotel....it was crazy, but we did it!

Dreams Punta Cana here we come....Jan16-23. Even got the wedding date I wanted, but now I still need to decide whether to have a civil or symbolic... leaning towards symbolic this time...would just be much easier...and cheaper!

any thoughts??

Congrats Tam!!! In my opinion, it would be a lot less of a head ache (just because of all the paper work and extra money) to go with the symbolic. However, if you are set on getting "legally" married in front of family and friends at Dreams, I would say go for civil. Honestly, I would love to just go get married today at the court house and then do a symbolic ceremony while I was down in Punta Cana, BUT my family and his family are going there because they want to see us get married, and we want them to be there for the actual thing too! So we are going for civil. It's whatever you feel is right for the both of you!

I agree with you, Ash!! We went back and forth between a symbolic and a civil ceremony, and finally we have decided on the civil. Although it is much less headache to do a symbolic, we wanted our wedding anniversary (as everyone knew it) to be that day. It wouldn't make it any less special, but we also had to intention of not telling anyone we go married before. We decided that we didn't want to deceive our family, so we are going with civil.. haha! But if your parents and family and guests are aware that it is a renewal of vows so to speak, and are still willing to come and are ok with it, I would go with that!!

Heeyyy Nat,

I didn't do my own I use a company called Pink Design Monograms, her designs are soo cute here's her website Pink Design Events - Stylish Stationery Design she is actually on maternity leave right now but will be back soon. I've seen a couple other brides on here use her services as well.

Hey does anyone know if you bring a DJ can you rent equipement from the resort ? I don't want to use the resort DJ because if he is not good I will be very upset. I though about using DJ Mannia but I don't want to pay him 800 and have never heard his dj'ing skills. I'd rather pay my own DJ to come and i know exactly how he sounds. We both love good music. what do you all think ?

    • 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.
