I'm happily married :) (Riviera Maya, May 2nd)

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies !!

 

Just a little word here to say I had such a wonderful wedding on Saturday !! I was sad to be missing some of my closest friends, that had to cancel for very good reasons (one of them has a 2-months old baby needing surgery beginning of June and did not want to take any risk ; another had final exams after a 2-years class and could not afford to be stuck in Mexico if anything happened ; another friend had his flight cancelled... and 2 got threatened with lay-offs). In the end I had 10 guests cancelling over an initial 30. We ended up with two big tables instead of 3. That was even more intimate than anticipated, and awesome.

 

Anyway, here on the Riviera Maya, there are still no cases reported and life goes on as usual. Playa del Carmen is alive with restaurants and bars open , the sun is shining and the wind is blowing. The only thing is, the archeological sites are still closed. We are still staying for our honeymoon though !

 

My wedding was fantastic. I will write a review when coming back, but everything went so well. Juliette from Papillon Weddings took care of everything and I did not have to move a toe. The hotel has been super accomodating with everything, specially given the circumstances - a very good come back from a bad start. A lot of people told me it was the most moving ceremony they attended.

 

I can't wait to see my pictures and video - I feel that everything went so fast I did not really enjoy it enough. Also, I'm a big photog myself and feel so strange about not having taken pics myself. Can't wait to see. I asked Claudia Rodriguez if she could send me one or two teasers to help me wait ! We'll see.

 

Well ladies that plan to go to Mexico - honestly just go - or wait and see and don't re-plan everything ! Right now the Riviera Maya is safer than Houston or NYC (everything is open air and there are no cases), there's really nothing to worry about. People start to realize it's not that serious - within two weeks it might just get solved.

 

I'm so glad I went. The stress of the first 3 days was terrible - receiving mails and text messages and calls of people who could not decide and wanted US to tell them what to do - or people just cancelling when we thought they would come... but starting Friday, when most of our guests arrived, everything was so great.

 

Have a good day, I will post pics soon !

Congratulations!! SO happy for you guys and so glad it all worked out. Sounds like a perfect wedding and so glad you got to go through with your dream wedding as planned. Too bad about a few cancellations, but sounds like they would have loved to be there if they could have. Still crossing my fingers here that we are able to leave for Mexico in a few weeks!! :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
