Thank you soo much for the review. It's nice to hear the positive things. I know the planning can be painful but I know to keep a open mind and remember its all about us and what we make of it.

That's a good question, honestly they look real but who knows! I'm gonna have to do some research and test it at home because if I can buy silk stems and put them in water I'll do that for sure.

 

Meghan - on another note, how did you get so many people booked SO early? I have more than half of the people not yet booked, telling me I'm nuts to have them book so early. I keep telling them that they don't understand and this isn't that early... so frustrating.

I sent out my save the dates by email really early (last october....about 20 months before my wedding), and in the email, I told people that the resort is booking up really fast, and in order to get the best rate (we have a locked in rate that is really good, and if the rates go down, they will honour the cheaper rates to the whole group) and avoid limited room availability, it is best to book asap. a few months later, I sent out another email reminding everyone, and I just sent another email out last month letting people know that we have almost 40 booked and we encourage everyone else to book if they are interested in coming (again, reiterating that if they wait too long, the resort may be full or they may no longer have their first choice for room availability)

 

How many do you have booked?

Meghan,

 

You have to have a magic touch. I sent my save the dates out in June and we are telling people to book my Sept. 7th. The only people who are booked so far in our group is my FI and I and maybe like 6 other people. The funny thing is lots of people have bought their plane tickets already just not made their deposit to the travel agent. We sent another email out today, so I hope reminds people to hurry and book.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
