How have you got on with all the paperwork?
People booking is another matter! I decided i'm not going to stress over it, I have given people save the dates and also invites so they know where and when and have had over a year to save. I know its a big ask for people to come and I havent pressured anyone into coming. I know a few people that could afford to come but havent booked but it all depends whats important to them. I wont think any less of people that dont come but will have a special bond with people that make the effort. How are you doing with bookings?

YAY! another UK bride! i get so excited if i talk to anyone from the UK marrying at the mp!

what date is your wedding? how many have you got going?

weve got 18 (including me and the H2B) booked so far, and about another 10 as possibles :)

I booked everything direct with the TA so didn't know about the bulk room bookings to get free events, which is a real bummer! but never mind!

i haven't even started on the apolsiled birth certificates! i should look into that! that's all we need right? i have the name of a company, that's on my Things to Do for next week :)

most of my bits are organised, i'm having a beach ceremony, no cocktail reception (because we can't afford it, so just going to one of the bar's) then a private function for the evening. my main problem is centerpieces, because the MP flower prices seem very expensive, but then lugging things from the UK to Mexico isn't going to be easy!!

what are you doing?

are you doing OOT bags?

I honestly cant wait, its going to be so good. Every time I mention Moon Palace people seems to know all about it, its known as one of the top hotels! Our date is 2nd June 2010, we have 12 adults and 2 kids so far but about 10 possibles that are fairly certain to go and then four who said they would but the excuses are starting. I dont mind if they cant come just wish they were honest and told me rather than me finding out from others.bann.gif

We booked with Virgin through our local TA so we didnt know about the bulk deal you get either but we are getting lots of other things free. H2b is catholic so we are having the Immaculate conception chapel. Like you we are also not doing the private cocktail bit.

Think you have to get your passports certified by a solicitor and also birth certifcates sent to FCO for 'approval' (basically rubber stamp them and charge you £62 for the privilage!). then send these onto the TA.

Flowers is a big issue for me too. SOOOOO expensive and you cant use outside vendors. Think I have a solution as I need 2 x BM bouquets as well. Found a website called bloominggorgeous.net. going to get real touch flowers for me and the bridesmaids (fraction of the price and you can keep them forever) and then ask if I can use my free bouquet flowers as a table piece instead of a bouquet... hope they will let me.

I'm not going to do OOT bags but will get really nice favours for the guests. Are you doing them?

    • 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
