Any 2011 brides?!!

Recommended Posts

Should I or shouldn't I? Either way, I'll let y'all know! Vistaprint.com has tons of stuff for free right now. I'd LOVE to order some STD postcards or return address labels right now but I'm apprehensive because we are getting married in 2011. If any of y'all are ready though, I'd say go for it! You only have to pay shipping on a lot of things or get a big discount on orders over the minimum amount, which is an amazing deal. I think I'll wait and hope they run another deal closer to when I am ready to send stuff out. Considering postcards that just say to Save the Date for April 2011 wedding in Mexico. I wish I could do more now!! haha.

I am a February 2011 bride... likely at Riu Montego Bay. My FI and I are hoping to have our STDs out a year in advance. We need to finalize the resort though!

 

Happy planning to all the 2011 brides!

I am definitely sending out save the dates in January once I have a finalized guest list. I have a three dates in mind depending on what the resort has available when I am able to book. Tifuhhknee, have you thought of a resort yet. Our date will either be the 21,22, or 23 of April. We might be at the same resort on the same day. :)

I think you could definitely have black dresses for your DW. It will be especially nice if your wedding is formal, but will be fine if it is informal, too. this is the great thing about DWs, anything goes! We are not bound by traditional wedding etiquette. If it is what you want, then it will be beautiful.

 

Always have fun ladies!!

I am so torn between lots of resorts, lol. I really like Dreams Cancun, Grand Sunset Princess, and Sandos Playacar right now. We are hoping for April 21, but would take either of the other dates you listed as well. What resort are you thinking?? Would be very cool to meet some BDW brides while there!

I think black would look amazing on the beach if it if short dresses. A good contrast to all the natural colors out there and it can work for any season.

We will be getting married at the Excellence Riviera Cancun resort. This is where FI proposed, so it just seemed like the right place. It is an absolutely amazing place- beautiful, romantic, and everyone is royalty. We are thinking of doing a "honeymoon" at the Excellence resort in Playa Mujeres just thirty minutes north.

Has anyone thought about the legal ceremony to symbolic ceremony issue? From reading some of the other threads it seems a lot of other brides are having a courthouse ceremony at home and then having a symbolic ceremony for their wedding abroad. I suppose it does matter which resort you choose though.

Exellence Riviera Cancun is a beautiful resort, but we are looking for a place that is not adults only. My pregnant MOH with a terrible fear of flying is going to get on a plane for me but says she will bring her kid (who will be just over 1) with her. So that one is out of the cards for us :o(

 

As for legal vs symbolic... my FI feels like it would be wrong to have a "fake wedding" in Mexico after already getting married at home at the courthouse. I told him no one would have to know. Maybe we would do that on my birthday (2 weeks before we want to be married), then all the paperwork will be over with and filed for when we get back home. They say you still sign a certificate, it's just not legal, so no one would know the difference.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
