Newly engaged, undecided, but with time on my hands

Recommended Posts

Although I am not paying for my wedding, we are budget-conscience. We were fully planning on Jamaica and had done a vast amount of research on resorts ourselves and with a travel agent. After further investigation, we found Mexico to have better deals.

Congrats! There's so much to worry about my fiance and I haven't decided on all the details yet either. I'm thinking Martha's Vineyard. I'm most concerned about what dress I'm going to wear, the photographer, food, how I'm going to decorate and the bridesmaid dresses!

I'm thinking of buying a bunch for my bridesmaids. I'm thinking a pink and white themed wedding so it would be perfect!

We picked the Azul Beach b/c there was a cocktail hour where they bring in a donkey with barrels full of beer. LOL We both HAD TO HAVE A DONKEY AT OUR WEDDING and the decision was made!

Happy hunting!!!!
HAHAHA! Your comment about the donkey made me laugh out loud! I'm sure if my husband and I were reading about the resorts and came across that info we'd both look at it each and be like, "hell yeah, that's where we're going", cause what's cooler on your wedding day then a donkey bringing you beer?!?!

Welcome and congrats! The way you save money on a destination wedding is usually because you have fewer people there...the costs can add up just as quickly as having a wedding back home. You can do it, you just need to be prepared for some sacrifices. Good luck!

    • 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.
