No, we are actually huge history buffs and love the culture. Plus we do not want a religious ceremony. This was just perfect because all of your guests get to be part of the ceremony. They each get to say a special message to you. Everyone who has done says their guests just loved it and it was more meaningful to them than a traditional ceremony.

My FI and I are not having a bridal party. We thought it would be nice to just let everyone enjoy and watch, rather than have them stand up there. :)

Haha I actually asked my two aunts if they would consider being in the wedding party and they jumped at it, and then quickly changed their minds because they said they just wanted to sit and enjoy the whole wedding. So I think it may be best to have no wedding party after all.

Hehe, too funny! Yeah, I've been in bridal parties before. It's an honor to do it, truly, but whenever I'm up there, in the back of my mind I always wish I could be sitting and watching with everyone else. :)

We haven't asked anyone yet, but have tossed around several ideas. I have 3 friends that I would like to have on my side, however FI doesn't have anyone he is "close" to, but doesn't want to be uneven and has thought maybe he would ask his Brother in law and my brother.

 

We are also entertaining the idea of not having a party and just honoring my friends with flowers or something to that effect.

We are doing just the 2 of us plus his daughter as the FG. She is to walk down the aisle and then sit down so it will just be the two of us at the alter. We are having 30-40 ppl so didn't see the need to have 4-6 people up front.

 

We were also doing the circle idea, but my photographer mentioined that it does hinder the photos as there are no clean shots of just us, there will alwasy be people behind the shot. just food for thought.

We're just having a MOH and BM (if he can ever pick one) I only have 2 female friends that I'm really close to. With the FI, his best friend had to back out of the wedding since his FI had back surgery and she's still out of work. So now he hasn't decided between his 2 cousins. We shall see!

    • 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
