Calling all November 2009 Brides!


Recommended Posts

For those ladies who are getting legally married before going to the resort, how far in advance are you having the ceremony? What are you going to wear? What about the guests, I don't want to make it a big deal but will people be offended if they were not invited to the actual ceremony?

 

Is everyne planning a AHR? if you are, how long after the actual wedding until you have the AHR?

I have not picked a dress yet, My Matron of honor is 9 mo preggers right now and she is kind of grouchy :) So I will just ignore for a few months. I think we will just go with something from a store like Nordstroms, BCBG or J Crew. THere is only 2 of them.

We plan on having our AHR in February. We wanted everyone to get through the holidays first.

I am not getting legally married before I leave but after I get back, (FI and I want the first time we says vows to be in Mx), but I would try to keep it on the DL, many of your guests that booked trips may be insulted that you are already married.

I plan on just wear a regular dress.

I am not having an AHR, so no help there.

Thanks for your thoughts ladies! I think we will get married here before we go and just keep it a secret.

 

I agree with you megashay that I don't want to make a big deal of it because to us the real wedding is in Mexico, the hard part is our families understanding that.

 

If we have a AHR we have to have two, because my fiances family lives across the country, which complicates things and makes them a lot more expensive, having a AHR where we live and where they live. I do enjoy a good party though so who knows what I'll do...

We are planning on getting married before we go. I haven't really put much thought into it as we will consider our Mexico wedding the real wedding. As for the AHR, we aren't planning on having a formal event, probably a big BBQ the following summer. Something more laid back than a formal reception.

Hi ladies!!

 

I also also a November bride. We are getting married in Bermuda on 11/9/09. We are taking a cruise from NJ to Bermuda and getting married on the island. I haven't done much yet, but I did get my dress, decide on a location in Bermuda (Astwood Cove Park in case you were wondering) and get a photographer. I'm also working on gathering items for my OOT bags. As you can see, there is still a lot to do, so I am counting on great advice from all of you!!

Hi All - I too am a November, 09, 09 Bride! I don't have nearly as much done as some on this thread! (Gulp)

I have venue chosen and booked - Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, DR with reception on the La Barcaza Yacht at sunset (yeah!)

I have a photographer booked, BM and GM chosen, wedding website up and running, invitations going out this week (didnt do STDs). I've also decided on the colours - tropical orange, with some accents of turquoise.

I don't have a dress yet, but I'm planning on choosing one very soon. My BM's are in the process of picking out thier dresses.

 

We are legally getting married in the DR. It's a bit more hassle, but I really want it to be the "real deal". We are having an AHR at Christmas time. We're actually doing a blessing ceremony in our church for our family and friends who can't come to DR, followed by a cocktail and dancing reception. I'm just excited that I get to wear my dress again!

 

I look forward to hearing more about everyone's plans as we get closer!

yeah we are getting legally married beforehand but haven't thought much about it - we will probably just wear jeans...we are just considering it paperwork and are not exchanging rings - our real wedding will be in Mexico so we are making the one here as simple, laid back, and easy as possible

I am just getting married there - a lot of paper work but we want it there then in January having an open house with food and drinks so everyone can see the pictures, video and get their gifts we bought them. With the weight restrictions these days we decided to forget about bringing stuff for guests and we ordered cookies with the invite attach to give everyone at the airport when we are boarding :) I am sure they'll love the cookie on the 4.5 hour plane ride.

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
    • I am coming to cancun sept 4 2021 and I am interested in releasing butterfly's in remembrance of my recently deceased daughter. We are staying Riu palace costa mujeres. Is this something we can do
