We have an appointment after work tomorrow to look at some designs, I'm so excited to pick something, I really hope her prices are reasonable.

 

Curious to see where everyone else is with this process. I hope to have exciting news to share about them tomorrow!

So far I have -

 

Bought my dress

Bought my veil and garter

Booked the resort and airfare, and organised a group deal.

Sent STDs with all the trip info (really more of an invite)

 

Yep, I really haven't done much.

OMG you are all way ahead of me!!

 

We finally got confirmation from my little sister (the MOH) as to when she can escape from med school for the wedding ... so now the work begins!!

 

So what do I have done ...

- I have my dress

- we know where

- we now know when

- we know who we're inviting

- we have enough aeroplan points to get us there and back for cheap

- we have picked out the rings

 

So lots of planning has been done, now we can implement it all!

Ok, so I think I may be the most behind April bride there is!

 

Our wedding date is April 11, 2009. Here is what I've done so far:

 

1. Made a deposit with the location

2. Verbally told family/friends and bridal party

3. Ordered and received STD's

 

Yeah... so I've got a loooooong way to go. Feel free to poke fun at me... ;-)

Awww you're doing fine, plenty of time. You should start dress shopping soon though. If you don't buy off the rack, it can take 5-6 months to come in.

Hi Ladies!

 

Just working on making our invitations, I used the boarding pass idea and found a great free template at Aylee bits » DIY: Boarding Pass Invitation / Save The Date

 

They worked out perfectly, and for 25 invites I spent a total of $25 including envelopes, the cutting tool and the perforator tool. And, got to have some fun with it!! :-)

 

Here's a picture of how they turned out, and some pics of my dress ...

 

Take it easy,

D.

Great job!!!!

 

My FI dad passed away almost 4 weeks ago today so I feel like we are at a standstill.

I've actually picked bridesmaids dresses and changed my mind on my dress this past week (he doesn't know any of this) but as far as anything else... nothing.

 

I've even asked him if he wants to postpone the wedding. He says no but at the same time I don't think he's ready to start talking "wedding" againhuh.gif

I did get a few more things done on my list... Our save the dates are sent, created a wedding logo, and narrowed down my dress options. I may post the finalists once I have narrowed it down to just 2.

    • 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
