4 months out... what do I need to get done??

 

We're getting married on 1/16/10. I've got the dress, his suit, all travel arrangements done, and photog booked. What should I be worrying about next? What do/did the rest of you have on your to-do list at this time?

Well, I would be thinking about your cake, wedding favors, seating arrangements, wedding party gifts (if you have a wedding party), a song list for the wedding and reception for the DJ, a Welcome Dinner if you want to have one, picking your flowers and decor if you havent done that already, how you want to do your hair and make up.. that kind of thing.

I have soo many questions that I hope some of you brides out there can help with.  I am looking into getting married there December 2011.  The only time that all of our guests would be able to come is Christmas time.  We will be picking a day between Christmas and New Years.  Are there any brides that have gotten married around this time.  I am nervous at cost for my guests to travel at this time of year but I can't think of any other time that I would be able to get most to go and weather be good. 

 

I love the idea of how private a wedding here will be.  Has anyone seen anything similar?  I am soo nervous to commit even though I love the looks of this place since I personally will not be able to do a site check myself.

 

Did most of you have your family there days before the wedding or more after the wedding?

Is the area where the party is held safe for children?  I will be having quite a few kids attending.

How is the food?  Quality of the food is pretty important to me.

Around how much did it cost to have someone come and do hair and make-up?

 

Any help I will appreciate! rolleyes.gif

I have never been to Mexico in December, but I am sure it will be really beautiful!

 

I have not seen anything similar in the "privacy" aspect. Las Caletas is GREAT for that. The beach is so beautiful and it feels like no one else is there but the people at your wedding. That is exactly the reason we picked it. We didn't want "random" people walking by our wedding. It was worth every penny to have the seclusion!

 

We had 32 people at our wedding including us and everyone stayed a week. We got there 2 1/2 days before the wedding and stayed another 4 days after. It was the BEST week of our lives.. everyone still raves about it. 

 

I didn't have any kids at our wedding.. but Las Caletas is very safe

 

The food was REALLY good. And there is SO much of it! Everyone raved about how great the food was.

 

Off the top of my head I cant remember how much hair and make up costed. I want to say it was $220 for mine... any other girls get theirs done that can remember more clearly?

Thanks!! Ann and Kat.

 

I will trying looking for thier posts. 

 

We are estimating that we may have about 100 people at our wedding.  Everyone intends on coming and half of my family lives in Mexico so I know they will coming for the wedding.  This is a reaon that I like LC because I will be getting so much for my money since I am having a large group I know it will add up fast.

 

About how long was the fire dancer show?  Did anyone get sick on the boat?  I am kinda worried about the combination of drinking and being on a boat home?  Is the the ride rough? 

Once the sun goes down is it really dark there? 

 

Kelley told me she does not suggest Wed. because that is the day of the week cruise ships will be at the marina as well.  Did anyone gt married on a Wed., if so what was your experience?

 

Thanks again ladies!

    • 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
