April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married April 20, 2011 at Dreams Riviera Cancun! So happy to find this thread!

 

For any Mexico brides- Is anyone else considering getting married before they go to save on the amount of time you have to be there prior to your wedding/costs for blood test, etc? Right now we're booked to do everything there, but if we get married here first, we will save about $2,000! I really wanted everything there to be the "real" thing, but it's hard to pass up saving that much money!

 

So far STDs have been sent out, dress bought, photographer booked (we are bringing him from here), rooms booked. Currently working on flights, and invites!

 

What are all your FIs wearing for the ceremony??

Hey mrsmaxx2b,

 

I am getting married on April 16. 2011 :) in Paradisus Palma Real- Punta Cana DR. I am looking forward to share stories.

 

Finally, my guests are booking so far we have 35 booked and counting! YEAH!! and they are all staying with us at PPR...well, we are not giving them a lot of choices. But I mean, if they all traveling to our wedding it make sense for all of us to be together in the same resort.

I have yet to get my dress but have one picked out online, Im just alittle hesitant to buy one online without trying some on in that style..So I will be making a joint trip with my lil sis who is getting married 3mos after me :) Fun times...
This is the dress that I have my eye on online(minus the flower)..let me know what you think :)
Strapless slim A-line bridal gown with zipper for brides 2009 style sawd0023 - a-line princess wedding dress
...... oh our colors are ocean blue and yellow...we are doing our flowers through Silk Wedding Flowers, Yellow Silk Bridal Bouquets were doing yellow calla lillies and some lil white flowers then wrapped with the cornflower color ribbon..their prices are pretty good I think, but Im just doing 7 and 8 inch boquets...
whatelse..oh my bridesmaid dresses are Victoria's Secret - Knot-front matte jersey dress in the paradise blue color then they will be wearing silver sandals...
I guess thats all I have so far in my wedding planning... I look forward to sharing this wedding planning time with you all :) Kathy

I didnt consider getting married beforehand like you said I want my wedding day to be the day I get married or the "real thing" you *hopefully* only get married once!

Your doing well with your planning - Mine FI is wearing a sand colour suit with white shirt and fuschia tie! have you thought about yours yet? x

Thanks for all the responses!! :) Never thought to look at Express or H&M! Great idea! My FI has two children, and I'd like for his son (9 years old) to wear something similar to my FI. I would like him to wear a tan suit. Any ideas where I could look for one for a 9 year old?

We are getting married at City Hall a few months before we leave for Mexico. We are having a "blessing ceremony" there. It's basically the same thing as getting married but less money and we don't have to fill out all kinds of Mexican paperwork or get blood tested!! My mom lives is Florida so we are actually going to do the marriage, shower, and bach party all in 1 long weekend!

 

As for what we're wearing...I'm still looking. May have found the dress but I'm waiting for my mom to see it. It's a simple trumpet style dress. I want my FI to wear a light tan suit. Also we're going to have our ring bearer wear a tan seersucker suit and our flower girls are wearing tutus!! I found this awesome website called weddingtutu.com. They are the cutest things!!!
