Eloping to Mexico- hopefully

Recommended Posts

So, about a year ago we were thinking of doing a destination wedding, but after looking into it and some pressure from our families, we decided to do the large traditional wedding. Now, 7 mos away from the wedding, and after booking the major vendors we are both sooooo disappointed we didn't stick to our original plan. Now, we are seriously planning on cancelling this wedding and eloping with our immediate family to Mexico!!!!

After Christmas we are going to cancel our vendors and go to a TA and start booking our elopement!! We couldn't be more excited! smile123.gifWe are hoping for April 2009 somewhere in Mexico, somewhere child friendly (our daughter is 2). Do you think I'll be able to find somewhere for 12 ppl only 4 mos away?? Any suggestions ladies?? Can't wait to start the planning!

For sure you will be able to book something and plan everything in time! There are tons of ladies on the forum that have planned their wedding in less than 2 months!! Once you choose your destination everything else will fall into place!

Have fun and best wishes!

Welcome to the forum. I think you could definatley find something you may have to be flexible about the day. I couldnt get Friday or Saturday because they were booked so i got married on a Thursday and it worked out perfectly. Goodluck with everything.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
