Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

welcome back Mexbride!

It must be weird (eye-opening) experience to goto an underfed country when you are from an overfed country!

Nice shoes! and BM dresses!  I will wait for the Spring when everyone is done with their ho ho ho holiday weight gain and loss before getting the bridal party outfits!  I learnt that from my friend who got an overfed BM who couldnt zip up her BM dress 2 weeks before the weddingoops.gif!

Haha that poor girl! I'm not too worried about my bridesmaids, they've all pretty much been the same size for all the years I've known them. Their weights don't really fluctuate. Except my MOH who is 8 months pregnant right now! But she just got a huge size and is having it altered in the spring. Malawi was an incredible experience. Though I work in international nutrition, so I've been to many developing countries and have seen the worst many times, unfortunately:( I love what I do though, and always feel a great sense of accomplishment at the end of a contract!

 

 

DiamondGirl - Thank you! So do I:) I wear them around the house all the time hahaha.

Hi everyone!

 

I've been a member (and huge fan) of this forum for about a year now, and I figured it was time to actually say "hi!"  I'm getting married on February 5, 2011 at The Royal PDC...definitely coming up, and I still can't believe it!  

 

It IS impossible to lose any weight right now!  I'm just hoping I can get really serious about dieting in January right before the wedding.  I only want to lose another 5 pounds or so (assuming I don't GAIN anything in the next couple of weeks! =P), so I'm hoping that I can pull it off.  

 

Nice to "meet" you all!

 

~Sarah

Mexbride,

 

it always feels great when u are doing smth that can make a difference!

 

Smille50,

You should ask Mexbride, since she is an expert in nutrition.  You are right! Holiday is a challenge, I am in charge of the food this year, when I look at the menu...errrr...it doesn't look like anything for anyone who wants to be on diet! lol.  Except for my mom, everyone in my family are under-weight, so we tend eat until we get bellied up! lol

I can give plenty of good dieting advice, but as I write it I would be on my 30th snickerdoodle cookie of the day haha. Even nutritionists can't resist holiday treats!! My best advice during the holidays is to just work out more. I've increased my workouts to feel better about the increase in yummy food I've been taking in.

Oh, and a very interesting fact for all of you... my thesis research is on breakfast, and there is overwhelming proof that people who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight! Your metabolism doesn't really kick in until you eat. So if you wait till noon to eat, you've missed out on hours of calorie burning that would happen if you just ate something. There is also overwhelming evidence of breakfast consumption increasing short-term memory, attention, and overall mood (note: these effects occur only if you have complex carbs for breakfast - so eat high-fiber cereal, whole wheat toast, or something along those lines). So everyone should make sure they never miss breakfast!:)

    • 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
