I"m still trying to decide whether or not to get married before we get to Mexico... I'm not sure I want to do the blood test and everything once we're there. Any advice? Are you glad you got legally married before? Not sure what to do
I talked to a shop that's a little over an hour from me..nicest, most helpful woman I have talked to...she said it's a brand new dress...so a lot of shops won't have it...she is willing to order it in October when she places her new orders...but she went through a bunch of styles she DOES have in her shop...I am definitely doing to go there and look...you could tell she really enjoyed what she did, as opposed to the people you call and all you get is "Sorry...don't carry it" CLICK
Oh!! Well that's wonderful!!! You're just early, ok well October will be here before you know it!

We are definitely still trying to decide on legal vs symbolic ceremony too. We are leaning more and more towards having legal ceremony here. More because my FI is Canadian and the whole visa thing too, but it also just seems easier!!
Those of you who are Canadian, what are the big travel companies to use for all inclusive travel (similar to funjet, etc)?? We have a ton of people coming from Canada and although we have a TA set up for them to use, I always like to do some searching on my own!!
Lastly, we have been thinking about having an ongoing theme for our wedding, but are having a difficult time coming up with ideas. We want things pretty formal and colors we are leaning towards are ivory, gold, and touches of raspberry/magenta. I have seen how some people have had birds, seashells, starfish, etc and am interested in something like that, but maybe different. We have considered orchids, but i have a feeling that is going to get very spendy very quick!! Any ideas?? I know my question is very vague..... Here are some inspiration boards below. Leaning towards less raspberry.magenta than seen here, but you get the idea!! Thanks!!
First of all, I don't know if I've met you before, my name is Amy!
I LOVE your color scheme and ideas. The gold and this fuschia/magenta deal is fantastic!
I like the idea of orchids but you're right, that could get pricey. Another girl on here had a fushia orchid theme and it was simiply stunning!
I don't know if this will make sense to you... but this was my first thought. I was thinking ok, you could pick a time period or taste that you like and have one of the colors be a focused theme but still keeping the other.
For example, say you love vintage... books, frames, trinkets etc. Doesn't all have to be the same thing, but it's all vintage & gold. OR Art Deco, or modern... so everything if it's modern is sleek and has clean lines and it could be different items (not just birds or starfish etc)
I'd have fuschia as your color... then I'd do the accent color in your theme or taste. Vintage gold picture frames as table numbers. Vintage gold trinket atop your cake... vintage looking placecards write in a gold metallic pen... gold chiavari chairs... gold jewlery for you and your girls, fushia dresses for them, fushia hair flower/feather/accessory etc.
Just a suggestion off the top of my head!
