Puerto Vallarta, but family not for it

Recommended Posts

My whole family took some time to warm up to the idea of a Mexico wedding. Actually, some of them are still a little put off but they are coming. :) In the end I just had to let them know that this was what I wanted and I hoped that they would be there with me.

Felicidades and welcome to the forum!! Try showing her some pictures, maybe? Showing her some prices on the resorts? We've had lots of people come down from New York and Washington D.C. and they all have loved it :):).

Welcome fellow newbie christykelly03! I can relate to your situation. My Mom said for me to do whatever I wanted when we were just engaged, then when I broke the news that we were going to Mexico she started laying down the guilt trip b/c they are paying for it. Dont budge on your decision if thats what you both really want to do, the day is about your union and comittment to one another and should be focused on what you both want in my opinion.

In my case, so far neither of my parents are attending our wedding in the Mayan...I was really disappoined at first but I have accepted it now. I am lucky to have supportive in-laws to be and a few close friends that will be attending. We have also planned a party when we get back and will do a small jp ceremony there too, nothing fancy at all! Hopefully that will satisify the parents in the end!

    • 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.
