another question.... I paid for all of the BM dresses and MOH shoes. Is a gift for them still appropriate? I thought maybe we could find something small in mexico as a gift/souvenir. We are going to the silver factory and am hoping to find cheap silver jewlery. As for th GM only 1 of the original boys asked is coming...maybe we'll just buy them drinks at the resort. LOL

What did you girls do for gifts?

Haha, I honestly don't think anyone is "expecting" gifts from you to be honest :)

I'd say paying for the dresses and MOH shoes is quite a gift. I didn't pay for dresses and shoes at all, although I did tell them they could wear whatever they wanted as long as it was cute, black and to their knees with black shoes. More cocktail attire almost, I figured if I wasn't paying for their attire I couldn't force them to wear whatever I wanted.

Soooo to answer you're question I'm doing OOT bags for the guests and a special OOT bag for the wedding party.

For my MOH & FI's BM I made custom Converse (I made some for FI & I too) with their names on them.

For the bridesmaids I have the following so far:

Little bag to give to them before we leave:
- Custom passport covers of vintage maps of Mexico and vintage Mexican stamps all stitched together
- Neck pillow for the flight
- Homemade bubble bath and or bath salts
- Maybe luggage tags

In OOT bag for BM's/MOH at resort I'll hand out upon their arrival to the hotel:

Big black and white striped beach bags
- black pashmina
- JCrew flip flops
- sleep mask
- dry erase door hanger
- room key/tip holder on wristlet
- cocktails for Dummies book
- common Spanish phrases book
- travel candle
- custom matches
- necklace made by me
- hair feather fascinator made by me
- deck of cards
- lip balm
- welcome letter and card
- guest room finder
- wedding week timeline
- maraca
- going to the dollar store forr buy repellant, hangover kit stuff and vitamins, snacks and protein bars.

The boys will have messenger bags with:

- Regular Converse
- Fun argyle socks and tie for the wedding
- Flip flops
- dry erase door hanger
- room key/tip holder on wristlet
- cocktails for Dummies book
- common Spanish phrases book
- travel candle
- custom matches
- deck of cards
- lip balm
- welcome letter and card
- guest room finder
- wedding week timeline
- maraca
- going to the dollar store forr buy repellant, hangover kit stuff and vitamins, snacks and protein bars.

Holy smokes... I think I've gotten totally out of control!!!

Not until just now listing everything out have I realized that I need to calm down.

lolo - I bought our wedding party attire too and that was their gift. Now that we're back and I have my pics I'm putting together a frame with a wedding party pic in it for each couple, shot glasses and a bottle of tequila for the boys, and something small for the girls that I haven't figured out yet lol. And yes, it has been months since my wedding.... that's how "on the ball" I am haha. I suck.

    • 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
