Teacherbride/Connie's Planning Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay, so Iâ€ve been home from my wedding for a couple weeks now and Iâ€m finally sitting down to write my planning thread. Thanks to all of you ladies for your help, support, and ideas! I will admit right now that Iâ€m terrible at remembering where I found things so if you see something that was your idea, feel free to take the credit!

 

Here goes…

 

The rings. We had them made by a local designer and I totally love them!

Bridesmaid Dresses – I originally chose some little sundresses by J Crew but was convinced they werenâ€t perfect. We decided to go with these from Davids Bridal, in chocolate brown, and the girls looked SO beautiful in them.

(excuse my hideous tan lines and weird face)

Groomsmen Attire – The boys picked their own outfits from Island Importer. They were comfy and they suited the boys really well.

Groomsmen Shoes – Reef Sandals (They were really cool with a pen and paper holder inside the sandal!)

Resort: Playa Pesquero, Holguin Cuba

A friend of mine got married there last January and every since seeing her photos I’ve been in love with this resort. Everything was wonderful and we had a blast there!

 

Ceremony D̩cor РI really wanted a lot of green and nothing too girly for the arch.

Reception Inspiration – Martha Stewart Pom Poms and Luminaries

I ended up only using the luminaries but I loved how it ended up.

    • 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.
