Hi Sunny we are getting married the same day at the same date!!!

We are getting married at 12 noon in the Gazebo and it will be just myself and my husband to be there so very small and private.

We are being very low key and just planning on saying our vows then having some beautiful photo's taken then its back to the pool for celebratory cocktails... taking my dress of first though ha ha

We are flying in from the UK and are there for 2 weeks so we can enjoy our wedding and honeymoon all in one go.

Have you got your dress yet? I have gone for a Maggie Sottero  and am so excited to wear it!

Hope to hear from you soon it will be nice to compare with another SMB bride to be woot.gif

Well Ladies, Everyones worst nightmare...happened to me sad.gifcry.gifmsncry.gifevil.gif

 

 Hurricane Rina hit the night before my wedding. The day everyone was supposed to be coming in for the wedding. Only 10 of the 30 people were able to come.

 

The morning we were leaving I checked the weather, as I did every morning for the weeks prior to our departure date. It was then I saw "Tropical Storm Rina" had formed. I was devestated. I was thinking at that point, ok...so it rains on my wedding. Get over it, and go on with life.

 

Little did I realize that it would gain enough strength to actually cancel EVERYONES flights that were planning on coming down the day before the wedding. People that were not able to make it included the Groom's Parents, Brothers & My Bridesmaids, among others.

 

The day of the wedding actually turned out beautifully. Not a cloud in the sky.

The reason I am posting this post under Secrets Maroma Beach is 1. Becuase the wedding was at SMB and 2. because they did an AMAZING job of trying to help me in anyway they could.

 

We had to start from scratch with the wedding because we went from 30 guests to 10. So we didn't have an outside dinner reception, we didn't do a DJ, and they gave us a portion of the World Cafe to ourselves for the buffet dinner they were holding that night. We got the cake at a discounted price, the cheapest wedding package for free, and since we had the ultimate wedding package orginally I got my hair and makeup, pedicure and our couple massages for free.

 

They made a very sad, disappointing, and stressful situation much easier to deal with. Valeria was GREAT at keeping my parents, me and the groom content and in the know on what was going on.

 

Since  NONE of my husbands family was able to make it down due to cancelled flights we are now having to do something in our hometown in addition to an At Home Reception. I am thinking we just do Pictures with everyone, then hold the ceremony, then do the Reception thing. I am going to try to have a 2nd wedding on SLIM budget. I will let everyone know how that turns out. We may not be able to organize that until next summer sometime.

 

So yea, your worst nightmare happened to me. cry.gif After many tears about the whole thing I have decided to take a deep breath and realize the way I had imagined it wasn't the way it was supposed to go.

 

So ladies my question to you is...What would you do for something at home in my situation!? What is too much? What is too little? Since everyone got their money back bc there was a hurricane and the airport closed for more than 12 hours....would any of you consider inviting everyone back down to mexico to the same resort and trying it all over again!? Should I just have the at home reception in my hometown? I need ideas, Suggestions, ANYTHING! I haven't found anyone that had this situation happen to them, and I need some MAJOR advice!

 


Thanks Ladies!

Hi Ladies,

I am signing on to this site for the first time!  I am going to be getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach over Memorial Day (5/27/11) next year!  It's going to be a busy weekend for travel - now that we've got the wedding date and the place lined up, the rest of the planning is looking fun.  I am hoping to get my Save the Date's out the week after Thanksgiving so they don't get too mixed in with Christmas Cards and the like.  We also have our website up and running and I ordered my dress.  I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you ladies and I'm hoping we can all share ideas:)

Can't wait to get started!

Anika

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
