Those having a beach wedding....

Recommended Posts

I wore the barefoot sandals. I attached my programs to bamboo fans for my guests. But my ceremony was at 4 and it was pretty breezy on the beach at that time.

I am thinking cute sandals or flips flops, and then kick em off before I get down the isle for adding flair! My colors are teal and chocolate and I got matching fans at Asian Imports for super cheap and the colors are amazing! $.90 a piece! Hand Fans

 

I looked around a lot and these were the best deal and I love the colors!!! They are perfect!

I'm probably going to go barefoot, but I'm having my options covered!

 

I'm getting some super comfy custom Goddess Sandals that match the style of my dress, and I'm also attempting to make some barefoot sandals (ignore the wires sticking out everywhere, I haven't snipped them yet):

I decided against wedges because I didn't want to be taller than my FI, and I also find that they can be hard to walk with depending on how hard-packed the sand is (if I was super short, I'm sure I would've gone for them though!).

I was thinking of going barefoot too... i had never heard of barefoot sandals before this forum! What a great idea! I will definitely check that out - for those of you who had them, any advise or recommendations on who/where to buy from? i absolutely love the look!

I recommend hemming your dress with a heel that is no more than 2 - 2.5 inches and make sure it looks good before you wrap up loose ends there. That way if u wear something flat on the beach or barefoot, it will not reflect badly when you have to take photos that require walking in your other shoes for photos.

originally i thought i was going to do a flat flip-flop... but im short 5"4 and FI is about 6"0 so i opted out of the flipflops and went for a wedge.. i will let u know how it goes.. but im happy with my choice ad i know that the wedge isnt going to sink in the sand like a heel would... im thinking about doing a small candy favour as well as a simple fan for the guests.......

Has anyone else had issues with getting the resort to put chairs on the beach for you?

I am wearing a sandal with a small heal. i would have opted for barefoot, but I am too short to get away with it. I say go with how you feel comfortable. If you go with sandals, make sure they are not too high, you dont want to do a balancing act on the way to the alter (my worst nightmare..lol)

    • 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
