I sent out STDs at the beginning of this month, giving everyone just over a year for a head's up. I want to send out invitations in the fall also. People need time to actually be prepared for something like this. Then in around February I'll send invites to the reception only for those I know won't come to Mexico.

Once you pick a resort it'll make it so much easier and you'll actually start to feel like you're getting married. I feel like you can't really go wrong with resorts these days!! I have heard Turks & Caicos is awesome too!!

 

We're going to wait until summer for our at home reception and then go on our honeymoon after that. I'm a teacher so it works best with my schedule. Lots of my guests got their STDs and loved them!!! YAY exciting!!

Oh ok! That's 2 weeks after our date. So you're the week after Easter and we are the week before Easter. I still don't think the holiday should be effecting us that much. Hopefully the prices will keep dropping!!! Thanks for the update though!!!

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been here in a while. Since my last visit I have switched resorts - with the help of my Dad. Great right?...maybe...maybe not. Now he has invited EVERYONE!!!!! Now I have no tally on how many people are even possiblly coming with us. So my quick fix is as of now only have the free reception that the resort is offering us. And not make any add ons atleast untill I have a complete tally from the resort on who booked.

 

Do you all think that just doing the cocktail reception is cheesy?

I don't think it is cheesy, especially depending on the time of day. I think if you are only doing a cocktail reception, it would be best to either have it early enough that they can go have dinner afterwards or late enough that guests would have already eaten dinner.

    • 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
