    Nicyx loving the necklace idea, plain and simple but elegant. You will look gorgeous! With your Maggie dress you will knock FI for six! I haven't thought about accessories to much. I like the idea of a flower in my hair but need to look into that more :o)

        I see a lot of you guys are also May 2011 brides...is anyone waiting for airfare prices to come out before you pick a place? FI thinks we should wait until we can get more concrete numbers for a flight/room package, but I don't want to wait that long to decide on a resort......
        I've also got my eye on a Maggie dress :

        Still have to find a place that carries it to try it on...I feel so behind, you guys are so on top of things!

          Hi all! I am also a May 2011 bride. We are hoping for Memorial Day weekend, so because it's a holiday weekend we are trying to get our resort booked asap. We've been researching for a couple of months now - SO frustrating! (It has to allow kids due to young cousins, but we don't want a resort filled with kids. We don't want to get married on the beach, and with 70-80 guests a lot of resorts don't have many other options. And we want a beautiful beach. This caused a lot of our initial choices to be crossed off!)

          However, we have finally narrowed it down to our "top two": Ceiba del Mar and Dreams Riviera Cancun. They're totally different, but we like them each for different reasons. Now our planner is in the negotiation phase. Fingers crossed we get one booked soon:)

                Kurlyks - that dress is stunning, love it! I've gone for Ambrosia. I know it's a big dress but i'm in love with it and i'm hoping as i'll wear a hoop with it i will have a little room for breeze ha ha ;o)

                Good luck Nicyx with your creative side today :o)

                I love a bit of DIY. I made our engagement party invites and loved doing them!

                I was looking at wedding table etiquette yesterday. M.I.L is not gonna like the fact she is not sitting next to her son! opps!

                    michelle2011- I just looked up ambrosia and it's gorgeous!! It looks like it would be super flattering too.

                    I definitely need to spend some more time on here to steal everyone's creative ideas....my sister asked me yesterday what my colors were and I said "um...it'll be colorful" I don't think I have the wedding gene...

                    welcome fivecents!

                      Just got an e mail from our hotel that the date is on hold for us but they can't confirm until march when they know if a judge will be available.
