Hi Ladies,

 

Can anyone answer my question: Do you know if we can have a outside / make-up artist do our hair and make-up the day of the wedding?

To answer a couple of questions thrown my way recently:

 

I didn't have table overlays so I never investigated the size of the tables.  I think the measurements of tables are somewhere on this thread if I remember correctly.  I was supposed to have between 6 and 8 people at each of my tables (I've heard they hold 10 but with the way I wanted the seating arrangement, I ended up with less people at each table).  Our reception was moved inside so I never even saw the round tables up close.  I probably shouldn't give advice on this subject.

 

I didn't have bridesmaids so I didn't have to think about the order of announcing at the reception.  However, the 9 (count 'em) times I've been a bridesmaid, I was paired up with whomever I walked down the aisle with and we were announced last bridesmaid entering first then on down the line to to the first bridesmaid/MOH and finally bride and groom (if that helps).  I googled a lot of different reception schedules to figure out my order of events.

 

We did not end up ordering the appetizers on the catamaran cruise.  I thought long and hard about picking up our own snacks at the Costco or something in Cancun but we decided it wasn't worth the hassle.  If people are hungry (or sober) while staying at an all-inclusive, it's their own fault! Ha!  We told guests there was only going to be alcohol on the cruise so they should plan their eating schedule accordingly.  No one complained!

 

Kad1010 - I just tried sending you the documents twice and I got a failure to deliver notice.  I copied and pasted the address... is there another address you'd like me to try?

I emailed Ana a few weeks ago regarding bringing Fernando Fuentes in and she told me it wouldn't be a problem but they would charge a $55 fee for him, as well as a $55 fee for any assistant he may bring with him.

Lupita, when is your wedding? I'm sure it's well before mine, I am not until the November 2012...but I am trying to get as many details and prices in writing now. That's awesome that you are going to use him too. I have heard wonderful things about him and he is super nice in his emails!

kad1010, our wedding is on December 10, 2011. Ceremony will be at the gazebo and reception on the pool deck. I can't wait 6 months to go!cheer2.gif

 

 

Sarah-Jane, it took a phone call and several  emails to Ana before she was able to confirm our wedding date....Very frustrating. I put our deposit down in 12/2010 and our wedding date was confirmed in 2/2011. Our Save the date went out end of Feb. for our wedding in December 2011.

 

Hope this helps!

    • 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.
