I don't know if that's true but that didn't sound appealing to me and finally I don't want to wait months to have my marriage license/certificate translated from Spanish to English in order for it to be legal.

Hi ladies! I'm really at a loss as to what to do for flowers. Did anyone get their flowers from the resort and if so how much did they cost? And if you didn't, where did you order your real touch flowers from?

I got my real touch flowers http://www.sharonnagassardesigns.com/

Andrea (MrsVaughn) here also used her for real touch.

I love working with Sharon, she is wonderful and very accomodating and helpful. My proof photos are coming in 2 weeks and I'll post my flowers.

I got quoted by the resort thousands of dollars for bouquets and centerpieces and I just felt it a huge rip off.

I've been told by my WC that our ceremony (which is legal) will be held in English...if that helps!

Thanks! I'm on her website now and I see a couple of bouquets I like already! Did you get the hanging bouquets from the resort or did you get them from her?

Hahaha, I actually am MUCH more relaxed. I had a bunch of people book recently and things are going well so I'm not as on edge. I also decided, no matter what happens I'm not stressing it. I'm 2 months out, it will be fabulous one way or the other.

I too heard that the ceremony will be in English... I'm writing it so if she feels like translating that into Spanish on a whim, I say go for it, maybe I wouldn't cry and I could get some good calm looking ceremony photos wink.gif

You mean the ones that will hang from the Chuppah at the ceremony? Those I'm getting at the resort.

How long did it take you to get your flowers after you placed your order? It says they do not do rush orders and that it is subject to how many orders they have. I'm just curious of ball park since my wedding is May 14th.

    • 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.
