Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone is looking for their Save the Dates still, but Wedding Paper Divas is having a really big sale! I had ordered about samples a few months ago, and we agreed on two. One of our choices was majorly on sale, and I got them for almost $50 cheaper than normal!

Have you considered having a seamstress sew bra cups into your dress? I was not sure about this idea at first because I was imaginging a thin lining sort of like on a bathing suit top -- and I need a lot more lift than that :-)

But I was actually pleasantly surprised by them. The cups I'm having sewn in are a thicker material, sort of like a VS push up bra.

I know this option may not give enough support for everyone, but it's worth looking into.

Otherwise, my go-to strapless bra is the Victoria Secret Plunge bra with detacheable straps (comes with regular and clear straps)

Thanks for the tip-off. We picked out a bridal shower invite from Wedding Paper Divas a few weeks back. I am going to go check and see if it's on sale!

Royal PDC and other REAL resorts do accept a $200 deposit to reserve wedding date, ceremony location and reception location. So I am set for Royal PDC, and will not book plane and room until Jan 2011!

Now, she loves the knockoff more than her LaSposa.
This is the real San Patrick

I'm so excited! Me and my fiance were on the fence about all the legal stuff required for a marriage in Mexico, and at first i was really against the idea of doing the court house at home and then just having the symbolic ceremony at the resort because we wanted our big day to feel like "our big day!!" But it turns out were both too squeemish about the required blood work (and clean needles in another country) and also we could save 800-1000 by doing it this way. We will go to the courthouse a few days before we leave and be very informal about it, we agreed to sign the papers, not kiss (shake on it instead) and not recite vows or exchange rings, that way the ceremony on the beach will feel like the real thing!
So excited. Any other 2011 dreams Riviera Cancun brides? and how far along are you in your planning? I'm curious if its difficult to plan a wedding by e-mail! =(
Welcome... Congrats, We debated about the blood test but it only takes about 2 mins to be done... but for us it woudnt even of saved us much $'s coming from the UK so hey we may as well go the whole shbang!!! :-)
Look forward to getting to hear about your planning :-) x

I have a question though since I'm sure you all have way more experience at this point... Does anyone know if it is better to use a DW travel agent? If so does anyone know a good one? THANKS :)
Welcome & Congrats :-) Where have you booked.....huh.gif

Thanks, will have a look at those on the internet too, found the maidenform ones and they work out about 22-24pounds which i can live with!
