I feel silly for asking but what are the OOT bags? I'm assuming they are welcome bags for the guests. But not sure what that exactly stands for?

Thank you TLGnhci!! I figured it was something like that.

 

Can I get opinions on websites for great invitations but affordable? Did anyone make invites themselves? 

 

My FI and I are thinking pocket invitations to include all the travel information, we are going to send out around 75 and I would like to keep the budget between 200-250 :)

Justiner57- I too am looking into the pocket fold invitations with travel info. Thankfully for me my fsil is very creative and we will be making the invitations. Check out some of the forums on here. Some of the ladies post how they make their invitations. Hopefully that helps :)

OK, I am starting to freak out a little bit with everything I have to do before my wedding in September. And I am also starting to freak out about the weather and it being "hurricane" season. My TA has assured me that 99% of the time the weather is fine and might rain for like an hour or so, but I don't see ANY other Brides booked for beginning of September. Am I crazy? I mean this was the only holiday weekend that worked for us and our families and now I'm thinking it might get ruined because of the weather?

 

Any Brides who've gotten married or visited the resort around Labor Day? What are your thoughts?

I was actually there this past labor day and the weather was perfectly fine.  The forecast said rain every single day, but I think it rained a total of one hour the whole week.  I think it got cloudy a few times, but they left as quick as they came in.

 

Regarding hurricane season, obviously there is no way to predict it, but the chances of one coming towards cancun at that exact time are pretty slim.  The gulf might get 3-4 hurricanes per season.  I think cancun felt the affects of 2 last year...but no major damage...only rain and some winds. 

 

In short, I wouldn't change your date only because of hurricane season.  Maybe just have a plan in the back of your head just incase something were to happen.  The ONE positive thing about hurricanes is you have a few days (or week) notice, versus an earthquake or other major disasters.

My experience (or research) has been the same. I HEAVILY researched weather patterns before booking our October 22nd date (also at the end of hurricane season). We tracked the weather every day in October 2010. Every day predicted rain, but it never actually rained. We visited third weekend of November and it rained off and on one day but that was because a tropical storm was passing. It wasn't that bad. There's a reef that runs parallel to the coastline that protects the area from bad hurricanes. As we were touring hotels, we were commonly told "I've lived here 30 years and have only seen 2 hurricanes" - it's just not that much of a reality there. Hope that makes you feel better!!

Thank you SOOOO much ladies! That is a huge relief from people who have actually visited during this season. I know my guests will be kind of freaked out if they see rain on the forecast but as long as it isn't raining the whole time we will all be fine. I have already started emailing my WC (Elizabeth Riff) to workout a back-up plan incase it does rain. 

 

Jaime I noticed you are getting married on my birthday, great date choice :) I'm sure this will be a beautiful time of year and I can't wait to see pictures!

 

May I ask your ladies opinions on airfare? I booked with destinationweddings.com and they don't offer airfare. I've been checking websites everyday, I'm a travel assistant for a reality TV show so it's basically my job, and haven't found anything under $473 with stops. Any advice? Right now it's looking like American Airlines with a layover in Dallas.

Hmm, airfare is a tricky one right now.  I know there are still "deals" out there but I think the standard pricing is on the rise b/c of the oil prices.  I really wouldn't know what to advise with that one.  :(

Hi Ladies,

 

Anyone doing a symbolic ceremony? We are going to have our good friend be our officiant. Wondering if anyone had a good source for wording for the ceremony? And what about the unity candle vs. sand?

 

We have chosen to release two white doves at our ceremony, not sure exactly how this will time into the ceremony yet... any ideas?

 

xoxo

    • 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
