Calling July 2009 Brides!
Posted 03 June 2009 - 12:30 PM
I'm getting married there on the 18th of July. Super excited! Can't believe it is literally right around the corner. We have 42 guests attending! My colors are Fuschia and Orange.
Things I already have and done:
DRESS- Still getting altered, no biggie small alterations
FLIP FLOPS- Bought them online at AdvantageBridal.com, they have very cute stuff Bling Bling Platform Flip Flop in Ivory, White, Black, Brown - Bridal Flip Flops - Bride Sandals - Wedding Flip Flops
VEIL- Bought a cathedral length one from online on eBay, way cheaper than the store. Should look beautiful on the beach and for the pictures especially if the wind is blowing. Plain and perfect!
BRIDESMAIDS- Ordered their dresses from David's bridal. cute, empire waste, strapless, perfect for beach!
GROOM- Bought his linen suit at Macy's- got the best deal! Wow, great sale. Brand is Cubavera, neutral color, got it for a total $60, I saved over $120. You can also find them online.
GROOMSMEN ATTIRE- They ordered their guayabera shirts from penners.com, the best store located in San Antonio, TX and you can order their shirts online. Perfect shirts for the beach, fits the Mexico beach theme. They got Poly-Cotton, color Orange. The bought their linen pants at Macy's same brand as my FI suit, very cheap too. They are drawstring. The shirt and the pants will fit perfect! They will need some brown flip-flops.
INVITATIONS- went out last Friday! Yah
Found a photographer, he is actually an aquaintance from back home in TX, his first cousin is one of my good friends and she is going to my wedding. he lives in San Miguel De Allende in MX, you should check out his site! Amazing photos. index
DJ- Using DJ Doremixx. Was a better deal than DJ Mannia, I have him for 5 hours and he will be bringing an additional speaker and Mic for the ceremony on the beach.
Now I need to work on:
My welcome bags, and I will be shipping many things over to the resort ahead of time. I have glass centerpieces that I will be shipping to MX. It is a big bowl, and inside I will put a pillar candle, sand, and shells around and a ribbon around the base of bowl. If any brides that are getting married after me are interested in seeing them and want to buy them from me, let me know! I can leave them there for you to use.
I am taking a bunch of tulle for my chairs to be decorated my colors for both ceremony and reception.
Alright! Talk to you ladies later!

I feel like I have so much stuff to do still. We are hopefully finalizing our reception stuff with the resort today, so that will be nice to have that done and over with. How many of you are having receptions outdoors?? My FI is worried it might be too hot!
I still need to do a hair run through too. My alterations on my dress won't be done until June 30th - and my TTD hasn't even come in yet - I'm getting a little worried about that one!!
And many tasky things still to finish - ordering our guest book, putting together playlists for music and picture lists for photographers, etc etc...

I asked another bride that just got married in Cancun how HOT it was. She said it depends on the breeze. In her case, the breeze was up every night but their wedding night. it was freakin' hot for them the day of the wedding.
I have to get my brochure done now. I will put them in the welcome bags once there.

So I think last time I said I was done with everything, and I realized I still had so much to do.
But now I think I am getting pretty close...I need to make some lists as I am getting overwhelmed trying to remember everything.
I packed all of our wedding stuff like OOT, ceremony, and reception things and it all fits in one large suitcase! Yay!...although still waiting for our Sandframe to come in and my last minute gifts for my bridesmaids. I odered them 2 pearl braclets from Overstock.com...love that place! One in white pearl and the other balck pearl. They are freshwater pearls in elactic so they can be dressed up or down. I have a few of these and love them!
My shower is this weekend and I am so excited! My bridesmaids are throwing it for me. I have gotten a few gifts in and feel so loved! My bridal tea was last weekend and it was amazing. My FMIL gave in my honor. I am so lucky to have amazing in laws!
Any whoo....we leave two weeks from today. And will be married two weeks from Sunday. Our legal day is on Tuesday! OMG, it is crazy it is here!
July is almost here! Congrats my July girls!
