Do you remember back when I posted my dress and was so unsure and couldnt make a decsion for the life of me! Well I finally just came to terms with it, Brandy you cant try on every dress in the world! My dress is the best one I tried on and thats all there is to it, it made me feel great, but i thought I had to keep looking, but now when I think about my dress Im excited to finally get it and thats how i know that ive made the right choice, some times you just have to buckle down and make a choice!!!

Maybe the stress of not being able to be with FI during our engagement is finally getting to me.

 

Oh, and now I just found out that our reservation WC has left and no one has been answering or returning her messages. And I found out on here, not even from the resort!

Ok something is really wrong with the site. Is anyone else getting a completely black screen and then you get an advil advertisement? lol

 

that sucks Mocha! Is this the person who is taking care of reservations for flights or the WC from the resort who is handling your wedding?

I can't imagine being away from FI that long! It would drive me nuts especially at a time like this.

Wow soo much to catch up on when I only look once a day....I'm going to have to check it a couple more times just so I can see what's going on!!

Brandy those dresses are gorgeous...seriously..you should be getting paid to do this.  You are great!!

 

SO just an FYI for everyone, I got word that the airlines and suppliers are changing their rules on traveling with your wedding dresses!  I advise checking in to it with your TA.  With my specific supplier, I am alloweed to have it as a 'free carry-on' but it has to be able to fit in the overhead compartment.  Whereas before you could hang it in their coat closet.  I know that there is companies out there that box up your wedding dress into a little box and then you jsut have to get it steamed when you get there.  Kind of a pain in the a$$ but at least you don't have to shove it into a carryon bag or something like that.

We have one person from Miami that works for the head office of the resort handling the room reservations, she is the one that left. Thankfully, our on site WC is still there.

 

However, the one in Miami told me that people could only book by contacting her directly, so that is what is on our invitations. And the resort still hasn't contacted me to let me know she is gone. One of my friends is trying to book and no one has called her back in almost a week.

Oh Brandy, to reply to your question about my dress, I did try on a lot but money was definitely a factor.  While I really loved the more expensive dresses, I just couldn't get myself to spend the money on it since my FI and I are paying for everything ourselves.  I really love the ruffly dresses and sweetheart necklines.  I just hope mine will work out in the end.  I think it will.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
