AHHH that's so cute! We're doing a signature drink. I haven't created it yet (waiting for a weekend with my mom and sisters) but I know it has to be pink, hehe. Plus my fiance is quite metrosexual so I think pink would be good for both of us. :) Love the worm idea!

because it has quite a bit of beading as well, i won't have to hotel press it and will be taking my own travel steamer down. My FI bought into the whole infomercial thing and bought the Tobi steamer, it came with a travel size. worked well on other trips.
My dress was quite lacy with beading. They sent it off site to be steamed and it came back fine. It actually travelled really well too. I folded it in a suitcase on the way back haha and wore it for my at home reception pretty much wrinkle free!

I am sooo behind on the whole dress thing.

 

I cant decide between a 10lb maggie sottero or a light chiffon Galina. Hmmm..for any of you who are married already and didnt wear a light or chiffon gown, how did you hold up in the tropical sun?

heck yes, I'm sure you will be welcoming the wind. My MOH got married in August (in Texas- and you know what that is like) and we wore black dresses (the guys black tuxes). HOT DAMN!

It is relly light and has the same shape as the maggie dress I wanted (Anna) Funny beacause I never thought of myself as a lace girl but I fell in love as soon as I tried it on. :o)

I'm starting to feel bad for our guests who have to sit in the sun with no shade and sweat for 15-20 minutes just to see us get married. I did get them fans so hopefully that will help!! I wonder if the Royal is willing to provide water bottles at the ceremony?

 

Lisa, if I can handle Texas weather then I def can handle Mexico weather! I think you should go with a lighter dress and get a dress that is more like you. If a big fancy dress is not you then you should get a simpler dress.

Don't feel bad. I went to two weddings last year in july and august and although it was hot (the groom was sweating more than any of us and he was in a gazebo lol), it was soo beautiful and the quick ceremony made it ok. Fans will definitely help- good call!

I think I read somewhere awhile back on trip advisor that they do actually have water bottles by the beach and pool areas ( i always thought that was a nice touch), so I'm sure asking them to have some handy nearby would be easy.

I think I am going to go with the program fans-the ones that fold down with the different panels.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
