Calling July 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Congratulations to you all! We got back a couple days ago from our amazing 11 days in Mexico and our wonderful wedding! All went better than planned. We even got a little rain and I laughed all the way through it. NEVER a worry...... I didn't have to worry about getting wet because our party ended up in the pool after the reception anyway!! HA

 

Again, Congratulations to you all!!

 

Now I am Mrs. Maldonado!!

Congratulations July brides so far! I got back on friday night.

 

TinaM2B - we had the same wedding date! The weather was so unpredictable that day!! Sunny in the morning then really windy with a bit of sprinkles then absolutely beautiful by the time of the ceremony.

 

It all worked out perfect. I went into the salon to get hair and makeup and it looked awful outside then a friend comes in and says the sun is out! It was crazy. I didn't know where the ceremony was going to be up until about 2 hrs before!

NewYork6156, Congratulations to you too!!! Yes, it was a crazy day. Please share photos when you get a chance.

Our ceremony was at 2:00 with overcast skys. That was probably great for the photos afterwards though. We had an outside cocktail hour from 5-6 that got rained out (fortunately, the gazebo we got married in at 2:00 was right next to it and all the staff moved it under the gazebo) The reception was at 6:00 inside so we didn't have to worry anymore about the weather. When I went to the salon, it was georgeous but a horrible storm went through while I was there that no one told me abuot.... I think that was a good thing because I would of been upset. The way it was, everything turned out perfect!

Isn't it crazy how the weather is always on everyone's mind, but in the end it really doesn't make a difference. The day is still great!

PS - I just posted some pics in my wedding review of Secrets Maroma Beach.

    • 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.
