    Well, it's about that time ladies! FI and I leave for Mexico in exactly one week from today. I just want to say thank you to everyone here who has been so kind and helpful over the last six months, you are all truly amazing!

    This thread won't be as detailed as other gals' threads have been in the past because I tried to keep my wedding as simple as possible. I did not do any DIY stuff at all. In fact, I didn't even send out invitations...our parents told whoever they thought would like to come to tag along if they wish to do so. It was kind of an open-invitation I guess you could say. Without further adieu, here's my stuff!

    Venue:

    Iberostar Paraiso Beach, Riviera Maya, Mexico

      I'm having a hair trial this Wednesday with my cousin's wife to help me figure out what I should do with my hair. I will take pics and update this thread after I've seen her.

      I hope you ladies enjoyed looking at this as much as I did putting it together!

        I love planning threads! Your dress looks so beautiful!
        For the hair, I would recommend up, since it'll be out of your face (especially with the wind) and cooler, but do what looks best. It's nice that your cousin's wife will practice with you so you can choose what you like best.
