Yay!! Im not by my lonesome!!

Meli122: We decided on Galveston kinda by default. Not that it isnt gorgeous it just wasnt our true idea. Originally, in our wildest dreams we wanted to go to Hawaii but found out that it is wayy more expensive than we thought it would be soo we got all excited and paid our deposit and picked Sandals Negril which doesn't allow kiddos. We wanted it that way even though we have a 1 yr. old b/c we wanted a no mess wedding and we couldn't even think of paying the crazy fee for our daughter since she would be 2 by then BUT FI's father decided that if FI's stepbrother couldn't come (he is 11) then they wouldn't be there AND they wouldn't help us pay for anything so....after going round and round with family and them contradicting themselves on saying.."Do what you want, its your day!" we decided to look stateside. We looked to Galveston b/c in our opinion it has the nicest beach with the least drive and least tourists. My mom and I took a trip down there with my daughter for the weekend stopped in at several vacation rentails and found a home right on the beach about 10mins from town that is big enough for our 2 immediate families and had space for a wedding there. And there ya have it! We will be having a wedding on the beach then will walk up to the house for a nautical themed reception. It worked out in the end but I still wish we could go out of the states somehow.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
