Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

I attended a wedding in St. Lucia and the groom and groomsmen rented and brought tuxes from Mens Wearhouse with no problems! As another poster said, they just had to rent them for a week.

 

I had to take this opportunity to show off my groomsmens' ties, which I absolutely LOVE! I found and bought them a couple of months ago at a Vineyard Vines outlet (just $40 each, almost 1/2 price!!). I took the pics with my phone, so they're not totally clear, and the pink is lighter in person. They're margarita glasses, limes, and shakers of salt:) I love it for a Mexico wedding!

Here's my dad's tie, also bought at Vineyard Vines. He'll be wearing a navy blue suit with it.

The groomsmen are going to wear khaki pants, navy blue blazers, white shirts, and brown shoes (no casual shoes or sandals) with them.  I think we're going to buy their khakis also, then let them bring their own white shirts and blue blazers. Though the blazer is a point of contention with my mother at the moment, who thinks it'll look terrible if they aren't all the exact same shade of blue (I don't really care, personally). She wants to buy the blazers for all of them, and I'd really rather her not, so we'll see. My fiance is either wearing the same (with a different color tie) or his uniform (he's in the Army)... he still hasn't decided and I don't think he'll tell me when he does, though I keep bugging him to. I think he wants it to be a surprise (but I've made it clear that its the khakis and blazer or uniform, nothing else haha).

Can the other 2011 brides or past brides also advise on this? I am not sure if my FI can rent a suit and bring it to and from Mexico without issue.  He asked me about this and I had no idea.  We live in New Jersey (USA - for my UK / Canadian / Island / and anyone that I missed - brides)

 

Thanks a bunch!

After posting that I was cruising the VV website searching for a tie for my FI (I plan to buy him a tie just in case he goes that route!) and found this one which I thought was super cute and had to share for any of you that are searching for ties for the wedding:) http://www.vineyardvines.com/product__23799_____25051_13050

 

Though my FI is picky and I know he would refuse to wear a starfish tie, so I also fell in love with this one, which is more his style (and available in aqua, which would match my bridesmaids' dresses!) http://www.vineyardvines.com/product__109682_____25051_13050

 

I love tie shopping, if you can't telllove.gif haha

I am so glad that my FI is not wanting to wear shorts. We havent started looking for his outfit and the groomsmen yet, but it will be semi formal as we arent getting married on the beach.

hahahaha my FI picked linen pants, because his legs aren't that photogenic!

Thus linen shirts and pants for all the boys, no tie (I think it is very cruel to ask men to wear ties or suits when it is 35C in July)

FI is wearing a linen suit, however his groomsmen are wearing dress shorts and short sleeve dress shirts! I like that it will be a little more casual...plus we are asking that our guests NOT wear suit and tie...it's going to be way too hot for that! LOLcool.gif

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
