Hi fellow January 2011 brides,
Congrats to everyone. I just found this thread and wanted to check out what stage everyone else is at because I feel like I'm falling behind. We are getting marriend at Valentin Imperial Maya on January 10, 2011. We wanted January 9 because we met in Mexico on that day three years ago but they wanted to charge us extra because it was a sunday. Anyways I now like the sound of the 10th better
I was looking for a way to honour my brother in our ceremony, who passed away 5 years ago and I really liked the idea of leaving a chair at the ceremony for him with a flower and a picture. Thanks for the lovely suggestion and also thought the bouquet charms were beautiful.
We are keeping things small and simple and right now there are 12 of us making the trip, just both sets of parents and a couple of close friends. I had to laugh with everyone's comments on the recent wedding dreams because I am going through the same thing right now and it's always the day of the wedding and I have a million things that need to be done.
We have decided (with some pressure from our family) that we need to have a reception back home to celebrate with the family and friends who aren't joining us. This has become a much bigger stress for me than the actual wedding. We are currently working on a venue/caterer and I was just wondering is anyone else planning on a party back home afterwards to celebrate??? It just feels now like I'm planning two weddings and the whole point of going away was to keep things affordable and simple. Any thoughts, ideas???
