Super Newbie Getting Married in Cancun!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


I am so excited to join this forum! My first forum i have ever joined besides American Idol when I was a freshman in college back in 2002 =P


1) My name is Joy and my fiance and I got engaged on August 9, 2008. I immediately went in wedding planning mode so here i am.


2) We are getting married next April 2009. The exact date is still in the works. we are waiting for confirmation on my other alternate date. I should have it confirmed by the end of the week. I have Saturday, April 18th reserved from my wedding sales coordinator, but I am waiting to see if April 23-25 are avaiable. We decided to look at later dates because teh resort we picked is lowering their daily room rate beginning on April 18th. We want a nice, very detailed oriented wedding so we're trying to save as much as we could!


3) We picked Moon Palace Resort and Spa in Cancun for our wedding location. I am sooo happy to see that our resort is a super popular wedding destination. It took super long for my fiance and I to choose a resort, let alone a country! Our first choice was St. Lucia and Bahamas 2nd. However, we needed all-inclusive resort since we are planning on bringing family members with us.


I just want to share how lucky I feel to have my fiance help me out EVERY STEP of the way! we do nightly pow-wows on wedding planning. I am sooo proud to say that every decision we've made, from date to location to price range, have been done TOGETHER! we debate and weigh our pros and cons, then we make a decision as one. awww sappy huh?


we have been together for 10 years so it's about time we get married! we are both 25, from California, college grads who have professional careers. we are both avid travelers so a destination wedding is perfect. we decided to have one while vacationing in dominican republic. we can't wait to be married and start our family =)


thank you to all of you who keep this forum going. i LOVE reading your posts, reviews, opinions, and stories! thanks for sharing =)



- Joy

    • 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
