      Do you have any pics of your maracas? I think that is a great idea!

            Wow your legal dresses are beautiful! Are you all having a lot of people at your legal ceremonies? For us, we are only having our parents as our witnesses. I saw a long white wool button up coat that Im desperate for... I think the legal ceremony is the perfect excuse to buy it

            Are any of you doing TTD photos? I am, but I'm doing it straight after the couples shoot, is anyone else doing that? I'm a little sad that I won't get to wear my dress for long, but I think this is the best way to go, rather than half to do more pics the next day when its only the 2 of us and no reception there.

            I still have to check the proper areas for this, but, Im curious :) We are going to send out wedding anounncements (have to, no question according to Mom) and can't decide whether to get the announcement printed on a copy of a picture, or do paper ones and send a picture to important people. What do you think?

            Only 1 more I promise! It's probably too hot for a dark plum color shirt for FI isn't it?

            *blush* Sorry! I can't seem to keep posts short and sweet lately or not ask 100 questions! *blush*

              Sorry, I won't be too much help to you. We're getting legally married in Mexico so no legal day stuff to worry about. We also are not doing a TTD session.

              I don't think that Plum should be an issue. The average high tempurature in the Cancun region is January is 25-30. You make the call if that would be too hot.

                We are having our Maid of Honour and Best Man over for the weekend/legal ceremony. We wanted to keep it small and did not invite anyone else because its going to be very small as we didn't want people to feel like they missed out.

                I am using the dress that I previously posted on this thread for my legal day and then taking it with me to the Dominican Republic and using it as my ttd. I wanted to keep my real wedding dress so I bought the second. I will be doing my photos on a different day so that we can stay with the group (we'll have approx 30) and enjoy our reception.

                As for your wedding announcements, it all depends on your budget. If you can afford to send out announcements with a photo, I say go for it. Those receiving it will appreciate it.

                I think you're safe with the plum coloured shirt. It won't be any warmer that a summer day. If he can survive in that shirt at home during the summer, he can handle it on your wedding day. That's my opinion anyway.

                  I am doing ttd photos, but not on the day of the wedding. We are either going the next day or Monday, whatever works better for the photog.

                  For the wedding announcements, are you sending them before you go to announce you are getting married or after the fact to announce that you are actually married? Either way, I would send them out on a photo. I think people who care about you will love to see a photo of you guys together.

                    Thanks everyone for your replies!

                    Now it's just to convince FI that he *wants* to wear a plum shirt lol!

                    Kelly, we would send them after to announce that we are married. I just noticed we have the same wedding date! :)

                      I noticed that too. Woohoo for January 10 Brides! I would definitely send an announcement with a picture from the wedding. People who can't make it will love it. Atleast I know I would if I was one who had to stay home...

                      Oh, and I am still working on convincing FI that even tho its on the beach he can't wear mesh shorts and t-shirt. lol He's kidding... I think. I know he finds himself very amusing!
