Thank you, thank you! That is awesome and it helps a lot! You've got me motivated to try to work on this a bit sooner now. I'm going to show this to FI when he gets home tomorrow morning, too.

Hi Everyone!

I'm putting invitation wording together and stumped on a couple things.... are you guys mentioning AHR on the formal invite?

My mistake is that I made an invitation that I like then sent it to our parents to see if they liked it... everyone came back with opinions that don't match up with mine :-/ lol

 

Grrr.

 

Also trying to get the photographer smoothed out...

 

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!!

Tracy I'm definitely going to be looking at your song list later on! I wasn't online pretty much at all yesterday but I wasn't at work either... so two things to catch up on and of course work has to take priority. I was an idiot and TOTALLY forgot about a meeting that I had booked for yesterday afternoon so I've got to cover my ass this morning! Oooops!

 

And yay for you girls getting a few people booked and more checked off your list with the videographer! Those are definitely noteworthy items! And even though I've already got a number of guests booked, I did have a few mention to me the other day that waiting until the new year to book is probably easier on a lot of people right now because the whole "looking forward" mentality is really difficult for a lot of people right now. I know we've said the same thing here before, but I think it was just a bit more reassuring hearing it from someone else and I hope you all have friends in the same boat that will just start booking up quickly after the holidays!!

 

Kimmy - there will always be different opinions from yours but the good thing is that you can pick and choose what changes you actually want to make from them! Make your invites the way you want to... and if someone is offended then just say "I took everyone's opinion into consideration and incorporated those suggestions where they seemed to work best with mine". And if that secretly means you didn't listen to a single suggestion because none fit with your ideas then so be it! Haha! People will always have their own opinion but in the end they will be happy with whatever invitation that you've chosen just because it is official and they have details in hand. I am not having an AHR so I can't help with whether to mention it directly on the invite really. Maybe you could include an additional note card with the details on it? That way it might be treated more as its own separate event/date from the actual wedding vacation itselfhuh.gif

I'm with everyone on the ipod playlist. I've compiled a lot of songs but haven't organized them. I've also been flipping through radio stations for music and use shazam on my phone to jot down the artist and songs titles lol.

 

Is anyone using an "untraditional" first dance song? I remember Swing Life Away was mentioned (Erin, was that you?) and I thought it would be a good first dance song...however, how do you dance to it? Just sway back and forth?

 

So my NYC shoot didn't happen as planned over the weekend. My dad came up and help FI and I tile our bathroom, which we've been renovating for FOREVER. I'm happy that room is finally coming together though. As for the engagement shoots, it looks like those "pre-engagements" are it, lol.. I'm not complaining though.

 

Yay for Michele and Erin. It must feel good to have people booked and to have a videographer! In the last week FI's parents booked, I still need to get mine to book ugh. Oh, my cousin who's in nursing school texted me lastnight said she was able to keep her room reservation... I guess she worked out her finals with her professor, now she doesnt have to cancel! As for the videographer, I will also be having one! I just hope it won't come out cheesy lol.

Hi All April Brides: I am also one and have just found this thread. I have been on the Bahia Principe Bride Thread. I am still having trouble getting around on BDW. We have 31 people booked for our wedding and that is just family and a few friends. We could possibly have more as I am sending my invitations out within the next 2 weeks.

 

The last few pages you have been talking about song lists. Does anyone have some song suggestions for the wedding when the flower girls, bridesmaids are walking? We have decided on our first dance song it is:

Someone Like You by Van Morrison

Hi April Brides! Just checking in...how exciting, our tickers our getting down to the 5 month mark, YAY. I actually feel like i'm in pretty good shape and don't plan on doing any more "planning" until the beginning of the year, Jan. Sent my invitations out early (September) with a January rsvp date, just so i can start planning the OOT bags, already have my dress, first fitting is January 10. Have 2 veils, 2 pair of shoes, need to determine my hairstyle, bought our rings, booked photographer & DJ...am i missing anything girlshuh.gif for now anyway?

    • 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
