April 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

What a cool idea a limo to the airport! It is your wedding after all. Still think we'll just take our car, I'll too stressed out about waiting to be picked up when I have a flight to take. What I've looked at in my case is a plane transfer between Montego Bay and the small Negril airport, but it would run us around 500$ round trip, to save 1-1.5h each way. A nice splurge, but I'm too cheapo for my own good I think!

 

I'm getting stressed out with everything I have to do this week. Packing, still a bit of shopping (sundresses, no Target up here Jenna, closest one is south of the border!), cleaning up the house a bit, it is a mess, and work! As if I wasn't already swamped, I told my boss I would do some other things that are normally out of my scope. So in the next 3 days I have to prepare my vacation: give out priorities & task lists to my team, tackle my daily job, get the ball rolling on a few things, and work/supervise this special project!! I've spent a few hours yesterday on my work laptop, and I feel I should be working instead of posting right now... I'll deserve this vacation!

 

On the positive side, we got our rings Thursday:

I know what you mean about feeling ready to get married when you get things- I feel the same way every time I get a package in the mail. It really makes it more real. I've been going into my spare room closet a lot lately just to look at all my wedding stuff again. Sad, I know, but I'm just so excited. FI is getting really excited too, I caught him playing with/wearing his wedding band the other day (I'm so glad that he found one he likes so much).

 

FI just booked us a limo to take us to the airport for our trip. We figured "why not, we're getting married, we should have a limo like everyone else." We're going to ride with two good friends and it should be a blast (the airport is about 45 min away from Halifax so it'll give us some time to enjoy it). Now he's all excited about that, too.

Thanks, I was very pleased with them! Yes 3 vases, 1 for each of us for our sand, and 1 for the person doing the ceremony, which will be Fi sister.

Exactly, getting all these things makes it feel so much more real, and the fact we leave so soon!!!

 

I can't believe it's so soon.

 

Ohhhh you guys are so lucky who's getting a limo or a town car. I begged and begged but it's $100 to take us to the airport and that is 20 mins away from us, so I have to agree with Fi it's just not worth it. He promised me one day tho lol.

 

Thanks Suzy!!

I feel you I had over a year and half, I should have half of the things I'm currently doing now already done.. not happy with my self in that area.

Again, I'm with you on the stress, and panic. But we all will get through it just like you said. Before we all know it our day will come and go just like that!

Tracy - Love your sand ceremony set. I was thinking about getting the heart one and decided against it, but now looking at yours I'm kinda regretting it a little.

 

Ewok - LOVE your rings, they're super pretty.

 

FI came home from Chicago this weekend, and I saw him for a total of 5 hours. He had his bachelor party this weekend, and all is good! They stuffed themselves full of BBQ in Austin and camped on the lake so it was very chill. I'm glad he had a good time, he needed a fun night. I'm really looking forward to spending 1.5 weeks with him, it'll be a nice change of pace.

 

I too did some last minute shopping this weekend. I don't know if you have a Ross in your area, and I dont' typically like that type of store, but I bought 10 sundresses for $60 this weekend! Pretty dang good deal if you ask me.

 

I got ALL of our wedding stuff packed this weekend, everything but the beach towels fit into 1 suitcase with a little room left. The beach towels are going into a duffle bag and being carried on. I would totally recommed everyone using the Space Bags as much as possible. They really saved my butt!

 

I pulled all of our summer clothes (its already in the 70's here), went through it all and wash everything. I think we are good to go. Just need to pack our clothing bag and take off! I'm thinking that we will have the 1 suitcase of wedding stuff, 1 suitcase for our clothing, 1 duffle bag that FI will carry on that will have the beach towels, and then I call carry on my wedding dress.

 

We leave in 3 days, and we're getting married in 5! I'm so excited! Just ready to leave, NOW!!!!

Holy crap Jenna!!! I can't imagine how excited you are to leave in three days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still have two weeks to go and already I'm getting tingly nerves about it :)

 

It must've been super nice to see FI even for a little while this weekend, and good to hear that he had a good bach. weekend as well. And I think it's amazing that you're all packed and in just three or four bags total!! I won't have much more than that (I don't think) but you must be super efficient!

 

And p.s. AWESOME steal getting ten sundresses for $60 - way to go!

Lol, that's the way it is for us. Our resort is only 20 min from the airport, but we figured it could take a lot longer if they're dropping other people off before us. We're going for as much resort time as possible! It was a lot ($120 roundtrip) but we splurged anyway.

That is truly amazing you're getting all your stuff into such little luggage! I'm very impressed and can only hope for the same.

GO YOU leaving in 3 days!!! Lucky you!

ewok- love the rings! Yours is so pretty! Did you have FI's made? I really like it.

 

hoyt- I cannot believe you leave in three days. You must be flipping out! April is almost here, ladies!

 

NYbeachbride- I hope you have a great legal day. Nice that you have the day off- it'll be so relaxing! I have to get FI to get on the phone tomorrow and book ours- I'm thinking the 23 of April (two days before we leave) hopefully at the courthouse. We need to get on that.

Thanks, I too was going back and forth on the sand kit, as it's $60 but I am happy I got it, a little memory of our wedding, plus I'll have punta cana side at the bottom.

I am so happy you were able to spend a little time with him, and he had a good bachelore party!!

60$ for all of those summer dresses, I'm totally jealous. We don't have a Ross here... always see them on T.V but none here hissyfit.gif
My goal, is to have all my summer clothes and some weddings things (cake cutting serve,garter) in my big luggage, and the rest of the wedding stuff goes to some of the guest and our carry-on. We waste more weight by adding extra luggages (I weight my big luggage, and alone with nothing in it weight 11.5lbs)
I haven't finish packing yet, so I have no idea if I can pull this off. But also we are handing all the in town guest their OOT bags, or else we would never would have enough room.

OMG, 5 days!!! you must be so excited, nervous at all?

I am just nervous about everything but about marrying FI 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
