Holy crap, 18 weddings in two years. I would be sick of weddings. At least your having a DW, so it's not only a wedding but it's a fun vacation too!

Geez....I don't even have a photographer yet! Have you been happy with Claudia so far?

We originally had a 4pm, and I'm even thinking about pushing it up to 3:30. I want to write our ceremony and see how long it's going to be first. But we're having a cocktail hour after the ceremony and I'd like the sun to be setting during that time.

Are you planning on seeing the groom and taking pics prior to the ceremony? Or did Claudia think that with a 4pm start time she still have enough sunlight after the ceremony to snap some pics of the happy couple?

This is EXACTLY why we are having a destination wedding. Between the two of us, we've been in 16 weddings (over the course of our lives, not just the last year) and we are "weddinged out". I would LOVE to go to a wedding just as a guest!! (We do love all of our friends dearly and are very honored to be a part of their special days.)

Yes I have been very happy with Claudia, she was not available but my next choice from her group, Citlalli was so I was ecstatic. That sounds nice to have the sun setting during the cocktail hour, thinking about it now it will work out that way for us too. 4pm ceremony and 5pm cocktail hour. No I am not going to see my FI before the ceremony. Thats why we had to push it up because with a 5pm ceremony time we would not at all get the pics in before the sun would set.

Okay, thanks. That helps.

 

I've just started freaking out about a rehearsal dinner dress and new bathing suit. Come October/November, tropical attire will not be in the stores! Have you guys thought about purchasing that stuff ahead of time? I'm planning on losing some more weight by then, so this is hard!!

Yeah I figure we need to have this stuff purchased by July-ish because at least up here they start throwing all the ugly winter coats and all that out on the racks so soon I hate it.

I booked Citlalli as well. Our ceremony time is at 4:00, but I have heard that the sun sets around 5-5:30 and sets quick. I finally convinced my FI to take pics before the ceremony. I want to take a lot of pictures of us and the bridal party and was afraid we wouldn't have enough time afterwards since we want to do a lot of family shots. We are having a cocktail hour starting at either 5 or 5:30.

We are having our ceremony at 3:30 as our photog suggested that so we could do pics after and get the sun set.

 

I am stocking up on summer clothes, bathing suits and stuff for our kids OOT pails now as I know the fall and winter stuff will be out by mid-july!

i've been buying some summer dresses now and plan to go out in July to get a bunch more. i'm dreading the bathing suits. I'm trying to lose a bunch of weight too, so i've been guessing what size i'll be. so far everything i bought was sized as S,M or L and not # sizes. I better be able to fit into the sizes i've got or i'll be screwed come Nov.

 

I remember trying to find stuff for Jamaica in Sept and it was nearly impossible. I ended up getting sundresses from a store like burlington coat factory that gets things a season later.

    • 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
