Tchuchuca (Tati)'s Planning Thread!
Posted 14 April 2009 - 01:03 AM
Thank you all so much for the well wishes, ideas, and your knowledge of destination weddings! I always knew a DW was the way I wanted to go, but I could've never done it without you girls (especially all of you on the Royal thread)!
We leave Wednesday for Playa del Carmen and will be married at 4pm at the Royal Playa del Carmen!
My E-ring and Wedding band...
I absolutely love it! You can't see it well in the pic, but it's got diamond chips on the prongs surrounding the solitare- so cute!
FI's Ring (bought online at
FI's wedding clothes:
I forgot to take a pic of the shirt, but it is a white shirt with white embroidery from CubaVera and linen/silk pants from Perry Ellis. He's going to wear it untucked with my favorite wedding accessory...
His Havaianas! I'm addicted to these flip flops! (It's also a little tiny bit of my Brazilian heritage snuck into the wedding!) FI and the Best Man will be wearing these!
My dress (kind of)
I didn't think with how casual FI will be dressed that it would be appropriate to have a foofy dress, so I ordered a bridesmaid dress from Alfred Angelo and had them make it in white. Below is a pic from when I first started trying dresses on and knew this was the casual, beachy look I was going for! It's white on white now, not orange and yellow, but you get the idea!
Next thread coming soon!

She's not totally in love with it, so I'm still debating on forcing her to wear it (and going all Bridezilla on her!) or letting her wear a more casual BM dress that she picked out for super cheap. We're just going to take both to Mexico and see what feels right at the time!
Here are her shoes bought on Ebay
My Jewelry was bought from a FANTASTIC Etsy seller named Virginia Geiger! She made me this necklace called Pearly Girly and it's PERFECT to dress up my dress a little more! The drop earrings with the 4 pearls are the ones she made for me as well. They're made out of Swarovski Pearls (didn't know they existed, but hey- works for me!)
To add a little bling to my dress, I bought a starfish bouquet jewel and made it into a brooch to put on the sash tie on my dress
I'm going to have my hair done just like my legal day 2 weeks ago... here's a pic if you didn't see my post!
My hair flowers were bought from Plumeria's Flower Boutique and she was AMAZING to work with! I would recommend her to any destination bride!
Almost done, I think!

My bouquet and FI's bout
We've paid a little extra for upgraded decor at the ceremony and this is the pic that Lili sent us...
I pray it's this pretty!
AND to save even more $$$ (and luggage space) she's letting us use the extra fabric and flowers to decorate the reception space! It's gonna be perfect!
We wanted an edible favor for our guests and I saw these favor boxes on the Ghiradelli website and was set! They have 9 pieces of chocolate of assorted flavors
Our sand ceremony set (frame bought at Kohls and vases bought at Michaels)
Our ceremony fans (a must!)
Thank you cards (bought from a BDW bride!)
And last but not least, our furry children posing for the card that I had made to hold FI's wedding gift (he wanted a guided fishing trip... whatever!)
Thanks again to all of you!
