I cannot find THE SHOES for my ceremony/reception. I am having both beach wedding & reception so I don't need high heels but I am having such a trouble finding the right sandals. My FI thinks I am nuts to go crazy over the shoes. I just need to pick something before my 2nd fitting... AHHHHHH fryingpan.gif

This was the hardest part of my attire. I looked for 5 months straight. Not kidding. I wanted to throw my head against the wall but I eventually found them. The problem is that I started looking in October just in time for the summer sandals to disappear. It took until February for them to come back around again. You're in prime sandal season so I'm sure you'll find something great!

There is a sticky on the Mexico thread w/ the flowers and when they are in season in Mexico. I went by that when choosing flowers, so I think that is why I got better prices.
Great, thank you much. I was curious because those pictures of the flower options on the Lomas site were so small. I'm digging the banana leaf though and wondered if it was an upgrade.

Thank you so much ladies for all the words of encouragement about the resort. It was just one of those challenging days when I let other people push doubts into my head. You ladies are the best!

I can't remember if you said you didn't want to go to Mexico for the Honeymoon but good friends of mine go to Adventura Spa Palace every year around their aniversary and they LOVE IT! They even tried to talk me into haveing my wedding there

I really had my heart on having a reception on the beach, but the previous brides have mentioned it being very windy on the beach in the evenings. I've got my positive mojo out there though.....;-)

You're invites are very classy and I like them! You are ahead of me in that arena because I haven't even ordered or sent out my STD's. My deadline in July 1st, which is a month later than I planned to have them out. But I just can't decide on making them or buying them and at this point I think I won't have much of a choice other than to buy them. :-)

:-)
Oh never fear! I am about where you are. I actually found that invitation on the internet the day after I got engaged! I am waiting on my TA to get back from her own vacation to do the final booking on our date. Right now may 30th is open and hopefully I can get this date and resort set in stone by end of this week! I am going to shoot for the beach wedding and I am not too picky about reception location

Those green leaves wrapped in circles under my flowers. I did not ask for it; they did it. They know what looks good - you dont have to ask!!! But, if you liked it, send it to the Miami coordinators and print a picture and bring it with you to Mexico so you can tell them during your planning meeting what you like.

I am glad you feel better! I hope that you dont have too many more of those days. They will creep up on you though - I think its just natural when you are planning any wedding - even local ones. But rest assured, none of use past brides regret anything!!!

Hello everyone,

I am getting married at the Sensatori January 24, 2011. It's great to find a spot where everyone can share their ideas.

 

There was someone who posted wondering if they had made the right decision about the Sensatori...I would reply 'YES'. My fiancee and I were able to travel down in April 2010 and view the property. The service and deco is wonderful. The food...some of the best I have ever eaten at an all- inclusive and all the spots they offer for the ceremonies and receptions are beautiful! Good luck to everyone and I can't wait to learn more!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
