That's not me btw! :)

And here's the other flowers: Purple Summer Wedding Flowers Photo by Floral Verde LLC | WeddingWire

Again, no random twigs sticking out if I go with these and also less bright green filler, more garden green. And a gold ribbon tying them all together. :)
Amy those flowers look great. I too really like the muted ones without the sticks. and the dress looks phenomenal! Wow! all those big decisions coming together. That must be so exciting for you. pinkie.gif

I am new to this so I have a lot of questions. We're planning on getting married @ Azul Sensatori May 25th, 2011. We are still waiting for our date to be confirmed.

We will have over 15 rooms booked. Have any of you received discounts for travelers for booking so many rooms?

I know that if we book at least 15 rooms we stay for free, but I feel like a discount should be offered to our families?

Any insight would be helpful, I have nooooo idea what I am doing :)

Thx,
Lauren
Congrats and welcome Lauren! These girls have learned, after us old married ladies keep telling them to read through the forum, they know now why it's so priceless to do so. It answers questions you didn't even know you had!

Good luck, these girls are wonderful :)

This is my first post so not sure how this really works but I have booked my wedding for 19th April 2011 in the Sensatori Hotel in Mexico and cant wait. Was wondering if anyone had any good starting points as I do not know who my WC is or spoken to anyone at the hotel as I have booked through Thomson's TA. Any help would be gratefully received. So much to think about.
Thanks
Gemma
Congrats and welcome! Like the girls will tell you, read through the thread, it helps tremendously!

If that was my wedding I would have been a stress case. and you know what? THANK GOD I DID A DW!!! All the stress and stupid crap we encounter dealing with family and travel issues, Miami coordinators, Lomas, then going through the hotel staff - yes I know its hard - but my wedding in Mexico was stress free and carefree and awesome. Saturday solidified my destination wedding choice that much more. I mean, 1/2 my guests would have missed my ceremony had we been having a traditional wedding on Saturday.

I only have a few pictures of the party - I'll do a review later once I get the better pix.
Picasa Web Albums - Amy - Stateside Rec...

The after party was a bit insane.... hehe

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Your AHR looks so much fun!!! Didn't even noticed that it was a hot day :)

I LOVE your pictures from Claudia. Where did you get the matching bracelet? I thought that was so cute :) How long did you have her for? Was it enough time to take all the pictures you needed?

This is my dress:

Here is FI and groosmen's suits:Click the image to open in full size.

They are also wearing matching vests and sage green ties

Here are the bridesmaids dresses:
Bridesmaid Dresses - the source for bridesmaid dresses fashion at Mori Lee Style 268
They will be in sage green incase that didnt show up

I am going to have 6 of these bouquets tied to chivalir chairs with gold bows. They will line the aisles as well:

I want to have dried lilac running the aisles: Click the image to open in full size.

I was originally going to do all white and green flowers but now think that there needs to be some more color. What do you think?

To go along with the ones I've shown you, which do you think would work best given my adversion to too much color and wanting everything to feel antiquey and romantic?

Here's one option. I would change a couple of thinsg...no branches out of the top and a gold ribbon. Also more garden green filler instead of bright green. Click the image to open in full size.

Here's the other option:Click the image to open in full size.
I would do those flowers as is.

Let me know what you think.Thanks for the input ladies!
When are you having your fitting? I think my dress will be done by end of August... I am not sure if it's too soon. I LOVE your lacy dress. Did you find shoes? I bet it's hard to find one to go with that dress :)

I LOVE your flowers. I personally like the white flowers and the purple/blue/white flower combo. For me purple/green combo flowers are beautiful but it says FALL!!! What are you wedding colors? What look are you going for?

I am all over the place with my color.. I am cracking up here bc I am giving advice to others on color when I am having problems of my own. haha.smile116.gif

I am not having any flowers on my wedding ceremony area - except for the two hanging flowers and rose pedals that comes with the exotic gazebo package. I figure that is enough for 15 min ceremony site :)

Great Job!!!

Love the dress! The suits for the men looks lovely and will go great with the girls sage dresses.

 

As for the flowers...if you are going with the antique feel, I would go with the muted tones. Maybe add a touch of the lilacs to your bouquet to tie in with the decor.

 

Also a warm welcome to Lauren and Gemma! :)

I am using Erick Rodriguez for my wedding. Did you check out the website to see Alberto's work? I think he's work is nice. I heard from many people that Claudia's photographers are well respected. You should check out his portfolio and make sure you like his style.

Question... did you guys tell your WC how you want the reception tables to be arranged? Or did you guys figured that out at the resort? We have a small group so I am really struggling how to set the tables...Thanks!

    • 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
