Hello Brides! I'm an April 24, 2010 SGOR Bride and I'm SO excited!!! My only issue (well...one of them) is that I CAN'T STAND the Martha Stewart collection they're offering now. I had no intentions of upgrading anything, but LAWD...the color purple isn't anywhere near the vision I had for the flowers I wanted to carry. Now I'm considering having a silk bouquet made to bring along with me. Has anyone else done this?? How did it work out?? I don't have a bridal party so I'll just need my bouquet and a boutiniere (sp) for my fiance (maybe a corsage for our moms I guess, also).

Hi, I brought my own silk bouquet. I was very particular about the flowers and colors I wanted, and now I can keep them forever. I stuffed them in saran wrap and a box, put it in my suitcase (brought a glue gun for back-up) and they were fine.

I also asked the WC for a credit for my free bouquet, and aplied it toward boutiners and hand corsages for the moms.

I've heard of many girls bringing their own silk bouquets. Do they not still have all of the other options for the regular bouquets anymore? I got the standard one that comes with the package, put some silk stephanotis in there (b/c they wanted $360 for real ones) and it turned out beautiful. GL

Hello!

Just spoke to Amber and she said as long as you put the money down before Nov 30th you can pick another bouquet. She sent me pictures and I was not impressed and the prices were crazy. She did say eventually you will be able to add to the "free package". I've heard of girls just bringing pics and getting what they wanted. Although after the 30th the Martha Stewart collections are copyrighted, and they claim nothing can be changed, added or shared.

    • 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
