Travel documents in hand-18 days til ROR

Recommended Posts

Is it just me? Or have any other brides forgotten that they are going on a vacation? An all inclusive? A trip away to relax, laugh and have fun?

 

Ive been sooo caught up in the fact Im getting married at ROR, so caught up in taking care of everyone's plans and helping them make arrangements. So caught up in buying decor, finding pics cakes, hair, doing wedding programs, printing specific documents, organizing, shopping for wedding bling lol..shoes, clothes, chatting with Chandlyn plus trying to clue everything up at work-I forget that Im going on a vacation.

 

It didn't hit me until I got my documents today from the travel agent. We have 18 days til we go to ROR.....I cant believe its creeping up so fast on us. Its unbelievable.

 

If I could offer any advice-it would be to relax in the planning stage, take it slow and smile! Stop worrying over every detail....lol Ive been so stressed and overwhelmed I haven't had a chance to enjoy the excitement. And I know after all this planning Ill miss it, I think Ill be back in here regularly helping all of you out!! lol As many brides do.

 

And, my lucky has been rotten lately. Well kinda. I woke up this morning dying with a flu-swollen glands, aches n pains, fever....Im still waiting on a call from my dentist to finish the 2nd part of my root canal...my stagette is this Saturday....I cant be sick-I have too much to do, and my fiance is out of the province until 2 days before we leave, so Im alone. Super super super busy at work. My mother is in excruciating pain with a slipped disk in her neck, my father is going in for surgery soon as we get back from ror (putting it off so he can attend the wedding), my grandfather is sick in the hospital. Ive spent so much time worrying over everyone else, that I think I dragged down my system and now here I am useless and sick myself....and dreading that root canal lol.........and of course, where else do I go to to vent, but here?

 

I wasn't going to vent actually lol...I wanted to say how excited I am now over the fact that we are going to Jamaica! Going on a trip of a lifetime. But all this stuff has been happening in the background.......ugh.....thank god the root canal will be done and over with-and thank god this flu is here now and not hitting me a couple days before the wedding? right? Positive side.

 

So yes-18 days.......crazy.....I cant wait to get to the airport ......and just board this flight! haha! Wish me luck with everyone guys! Deep breaths....

    • 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.
