These dreams are so stressful!! I had a few of them a couple of months ago and woke up crying my eyes out, then I realized it was time to start getting the rest of my list crossed off :)

I had a dream similar to that! I dreamed we got all the way to Cuba, it was the day of the wedding and my mom said "oops, forgot your dress at home!" -I may stay over at her place the night before we leave to make sure it makes the trip....paranoid!
My coworker told me this morning that she had a dream I came into work wearing my wedding dress to show everyone what it looked like. She said it was very short and 80's-looking and I was wearing white tights as well and looking for compliments....LOL I guess everyone's excited for April!

I'm doing my first fitting for my dress on Wednesday and I'm terrified that it's not going to fit!!!


Everything is really starting to sink in, all in one day I had a call the my dress had arrived, my veil was shipped, some customized gifts were being shipped, and we're getting packages everyday with gifts or something I've ordered.


I had my first shower last weekend and it was so fun smile29.gif

it's almost APRIL!!!!! woot2.gif


I am not until the end of April so right now I feel like I have so much time left!


How is everyone else doing though? especially you all who are in the first week of April!?


Suprisingly I feel like my to-do list is shrinking and I am not really stressed about anything...just EXCITED!!!!!


Here are the big things I left to do, most will be accomplished this weekend and shouldn't be too time consuming!

-Order photobook with Bpics (it is all created, just need to order it!)

-Finish luggage tags and send out pre-travel packets (these will go out next week!)

-welcome book for OOT bags

-finish getting all of the things for OOT bags

-pick up my dress!

-Get FI's suit altered (that should arrive next week)

-Get parent's gifts...not quite sure what I am going to do for this yet!



Really that is all I have left to do! I feel like we could leave tomorrow and I would be ok if that stuff wasn't completed! (well i would need my dress and FI's suit!)

I have finally got the ball rolling on a lot of the things that needed to be done. I am actually kind of "stunned" by everything, now it is all starting to feel so real! I am super excited though and can't wait to see it all unfold!

To do/in process

-dress is in for alterations

-oot bags 99% done

-waiting on veil to arrive

-ordered FH gift today (hope it arrives in time)

....I am sure there is plenty more on the list but I don't have it with me right now.

I am actually thinking about starting packingon the weekend! YAY :)

I had my makeup trial at Sephora last night and it was fantastic! I've never gone there before for a makeup application and I loved the fact that it's FREE and there is no pressure to buy anything. Of course, I bought $250 of makeup though! embarrest.gif

OK. I think I've been avoiding this thread because I have not done much. I have had two fittings for my dress and have not ordered my veil. I dont know what the hell I'm waiting for...LOL


Just have to figure out ceremony music; anyone has any suggestions of a good compilation CD?


Happy Planning to us all!! Dont forget to enjoy every minute!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
