Happy Legal Day Maura! **UPDATED W/PICS!**

Recommended Posts

Thank you thank you thank you for all your well-wishes and prayers for good weather! Our legal day was fantastic!

 

We started off the day having breakfast at the café across the street on Saturday morning and then I left to get my hair done. I liked it, but I will definitely be doing my hair different for the wedding in Mexico because it didn’t hold up great in the wind and from moving around and being hugged by everyone, so I can’t imagine what it would’ve looked like if we had been dancing all night too. I haven’t gotten the photos loaded from my own camera but when I do, I will come back and add a close up photo of my hair.

 

We ended up actually doing our ceremony on the garden terrace overlooking the Chicago River at a fancy restaurant about a block from our house. The weather ended up being beautiful, there was a little bit of wind and it was a little cloudy during the ceremony, but the sun came out toward the end. We toasted with champagne afterwards, and had a few glasses of wine before heading to dinner with our parents. We spent the weekend at a hotel so we had a kind of mini-moon, which was really nice to have some privacy while his family had the run of our house.

 

Today (Sunday) we went to brunch at the Four Seasons Hotel with our parents before we took Jose’s parents to the airport. It was absolutely incredible! All in all, it was amazing, and we are so so so excited for our wedding in Mexico now!

 

Here are some highlights in photos from the day.

    • 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.
