JT, BTW the Dreams Resort looks beautiful, I love the fact that it's a little off the path of the chain of hotels.


How are the plans coming along?

Oh my GOSH!! I am sooo overwhelmed!!! I am a May 30th, 2010 bride and have SOO much still to do! How in the world do you ladies do all of the DIY, etc....and still have a job, life, etc..??!! I feel like I don't have enough time in the day to research and yet so many brides have already done the research for me/us! I guess after I get back from Sundance snowboarding Jan. 20-24, I will be able to focus more and hunker down and get things done!?! Oh, and did I mention that we might be relocating from SC to Vancouver mid April?!! OMG if I make it through this, I can make it through ANYTHING!!


I hope to have our invitation passport style form completed by the end of the month to get things rolling there. One thing at a time is my motto so far.


Checklist complete:

-Dresses (2 out of 3 ordered)


-Location & date

-BM dresses ordered

-STD's sent out this week

-Inspiration boards for each event for vendors/WC

-STD planning thread

-Hair stylist


Checklist To-do:

-OOT bags (This is the BIG one)


-old, new, borrowed, blue

-Cake (grooms)

-Grooms/man attire

-Jewelry, accessories


-Table #'s, menus, and namecards, Oh my! wink.gif

-and on, and on, and on......I have to stop here bc I am stressing out just writing this LOL!!! The reality of getting all of this done is what it is and has to be done, but it is definitely stressful and makes me miss my Mom even more. I wish I had some consistent help, well any help would be nice. sad.gif

But I am so glad that I have this forum to lean on and use! I do not know what I wdve done without you ALL!!


Congrats to EVERYONE and Thanks for all of the sharing and excitement! :)

Hey everyone, Happy New Year! Happy wedding year!! Only 4 months to go - EEK! It's gonna come really fast!

We finally got people to book, though it was only in the last few days. Our rsvp deadline was Jan 1st & booking deadline was Jan 5th (bad timing but the hotel set the date). But we've been out of town visiting family for 2 weeks so haven't been home to receive the rsvp's. So I sent out a reminder email Saturday to everyone who hadn't booked (which was almost everyone). I included the room rates, our website & travel agent info and asked people to let us know their plans. It really helped nudge people who are planning on coming and those who aren't just sent me an email back (got a lot of "no's" but at least we know now!). I think we had 10 rooms book on the final day. Bunch of procrastinators & I seriously can't understand why it's so freaking hard to send back a stupid rsvp card! ugh.


Anyway, tomorrow's my BD shoot! It's combined with my bachelorette party so I'm doing it w/ my 3 BM's and then we're having a girls night with a bunch of friends afterward. I'm nervous but excited too. But I really really wish I hadn't indulged so much over the holidays.

    • 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.
