Sandals Brides Updates!

Recommended Posts

My FI is actually wearing Kahki shorts and white button down shirt. He picked it out. He wanted to be cool and caual and I have been trying be totally relaxed about everything. He honestly looked really nice in it too. He still hasn't decided on wearing his leather flip flop or the sandals. I am kinda leaning twords the flip flops but whatever he is comfortable in. He was married once. Right out of highschool. It was a horrible experiance for him. I want this to be as amazing for him as it is for me so whatever he wants he gets too...lol

 

I had such a cool thought this morning. I woke up and thought tonight is the last night spend on my own bed! I really do not have all that much left to do the next two days either. My FI has to pack tonight and that is about it. I have to add a couple of last minute things to our suitcases. Other than that I am going to be able to relax!

Today Darma told me that the sand ceremony is an extra $100 dollars. It sounds like everyone else was told that it is not an extra charge. I wonder if the price is for the supplies, like the vases and sand; she didn't specify. Any opinions on this?
I emailed Darma to ask her about the sand ceremony and she told me that if you bring your own supplies that there is no charge. The $100 is to cover the vases and sand. She did tell me that you can't use sand off the beach so if you don't bring your own you'll have to buy it there.

As far as the flowers go, she sent me pictures of the 2 bouquets included in the free wedding package, and there are daisies and carnations. If anyone is interested I'll try to post the pictures!

Congratulations to those of you who have weddings coming really soon! Can't wait to see the pictures and hear all about it!!!

Doe she mean that you literally can't pick up sand off the beach right before the sand ceremony, or that it's not allowed period? I was planning on just using beach sand because I can't find sand colors that I like. I guess one way around that is to collect the sand days prior to the wedding and just act like nothing's shady worried2.gif I guess I'll have to check on whether sand can be brought back into the states...

I found this on the Homeland Security Website:

Soil is considered the loose surface material of the earth in which plants, trees, and scrubs grow. In most cases, the soil consists of disintegrated rock with an admixture of organic material and soluble salts. Soil is prohibited entry unless accompanied by an import permit. Soil must be declared and the permit must be verified.

I guess that explains why beach sand can't be used. On to Plan B!

That really stinks about the sand! I wanted to bring my own for the ceremony so I could find some colored (which I should probably start on NOW), but I wanted to bring some back off the beach. DARN! It's a good thing you mentioned that because I probably would have got stuck trying to come back through customs!!!

Does anyone happen to know the rule with alcohol? Like how much one person can bring back to the US? We thought it would be fun to bring back some Jamaican Rum and my fiance plans to have everyone that isn't already buying some bring some back for him, too!

That's good to know. I think Jamaican Rum would be a great souvenir!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
