Any Eldorado Seaside Brides??

Recommended Posts

Thats so exciting!!! I can't believe how close your wedding date is now!!! YAY! So about your hair.. I found out about what I may do for mine on this forum.. someone suggested getting a hair trial done at your hometown and have them take pictures during the process so when you go to the resort you can show them the pictures and have them try and recreate it... I think thats what I will be doing... makes things a little less stressful if you have something to show them!

tracy s - GREAT idea about the hair.. I think I will work on that the next couple weeks... so what I can come up with...

 

yeah the dress fitting is in a couple hours and there is a FULL OUT BLIZZARD going on outside.. haha.. kinda funny...

 

when I got engaged in Sept, I started going to the gym.. I have gone from trying on size 12-14 wedding dresses to having my size 10 having to be taken in cause the laces meet... So I wish I could have put my dress fitting off a bit longer... or gotten a size 8.. but if that's all I have to complain about LIFE ain't that bad.. haha..

 

I feel like a 'dork' saying I have a personal trainer.. but after a 2004 car accident I have spent a crap load of money on massage and chiro... (neck & upper back injury) and since hitting the gym bearly a penny... best $$ I have ever spent and it's only twice a week for 25mins.. and watching my food...

Question to you ladies... how much did you spend on your dresses?? Mine is currently on sale.. I am inquiring as to how much on sale but I just wanted to ball park it and see what everyone else paid for theirs??.. Also are you guys doing A TTD session? If so did you use another dress?? I am thinking I want to find a cheaper dress to do this in, but I guess I am looking for opinions! Let me know! Thanks! :)

I bought mine online for $370 usd... i found it in the store, and bought it online because it was 600$ cheaper... Not doing a trash the dress because we don't have time after the wedding unfortunately we leave the next day.. lots of ladies seem to be passing on dresses for cheap though that would be great for a TTD if you want another. Have you looked online at the cost of yours?

I spent 540US for mine.. I found the dress in a store here in Canada.. and they wanted 1150 plus tax.. Yikes.. so I 'googled' it and found the exact same dress in the US at a bridal store going out of business NWT. I was VERY happy.

 

I would search used pages for a TTD. Check out Kijiji in Calgary and you can get something for $100 I'm sure.. so wade around in the ocean in.. haha.. good luck

    • 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
