November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

I will actually need everything packed the night before we leave.  Our flight is at 6am so we will have to wake up around 3am to get ready, out the door and to the airport.  I plan on loading the car the night before - wedding dress and all.  6am is early, but that means we land in Cancun (after a layover in Houston) a little after 10am so that makes it worth it in my mind.

I can't believe how fast the time is going, it's crazy!! I had it in my head that we had 3 weeks and 3 days left before we fly but I realized today that it's just 2 weeks and 2 days, I almost had a heart attack!! I just lost a whole week!

This weekend I hope to get everything for the wedding packed up, and if ambitious enough am going to tackle all my own vaction clothes and stuff too. I hate packing to begin with so have been trying to put it off.

We have a 7am flight, so need to hit the road by 4am, maybe a little earlier so I will be doing the same, everything will be loaded up the night before! We have direct flights and have private transfers meaning we won't have to stop at other resorts so should be there lovely and early.

I really think i am going to be doing things right up until the night before! Thank God once we get to Mexico I have to release control and just relax!!

I had a dress fitting this evening and it's going great. So far she has had to hem it, take in around hips and waist as I wanted it fitted, let out around the bust (which is weird because I am fairly small busted), add cups, and do the bussle. Now that we finalized those tonight, she just needs to sew in the sash I am adding, so I pick it up next Thursday. Can't wait to bring my baby home!

It's so lovely to be able to talk to so many other lovely ladies who are in the same position as me. I love this website!

I am going to try and get everything done the weekend before we leave on Wednesday morning so I have time to try and think of anything I missed.  In order to try and destress when we get to Mexico, Paul and I have scheduled our included couple's massage (it comes with the wedding package we are buying) for the first evening in Cancun.  I scheduled it outside at a beach palapa at 5:00pm and sunset is 5:10pm - I hope it is as pretty as I picture it to be.

 

Alright ladies - time to get gready for bed.  Have a good night.

I already started packing my OOT stuff. But i am slightly starting to panic. More due to AHR than DW. I should not be on this site, but What can I say....I'm addicted! 

 

I still have to finish table assignments, make about 110 escort cards and attach them to the starfish with ribbon.

 

I just had my fitting for both dresses and am now worried that my three month pregger belly will grow in the next couple weeks. I keep having dreams that I won't fit in my dress on our wedding day!

 

T- 2wks 5days : )

Girls - how is the time flying like this?!?!?  AHHH I'm so excited for everyone :-)   I have my second fitting this weekend, we're picking up bands next week.   Assembling the programs next week too.

 

I totally keep forgetting about our AHR and that's realllllly starting to sneak up on me.  OOPS!  That's Jan 7th and we're sending invites for that next week.

 

We leave in 25 DAYS!  Can I start packing yet?! lol

Oh girls its so exciting isn't it - we fly in 16 days! I had my final dress fitting yesterday and I am so pleased with how it looks, it fits perfectly and I just love it! I am taking my h2b's ring down to be engraved tomorrow, I'm really excited because its a surprise for him and I just know he will love it! 

 

I also had my hair trial this week, which is another thing to tick off the list - I was really really pleased with the results. 

 

I am hoping to pack next weekend, although I have two days off work before we fly and we fly on a Sunday so actually have 3 whole days to pack and be excited! And believe me I will be excited. 

 

I have been checking out our hotels webcam and despite having days of rain last week, the weather has been gorgeous this week which has just added to the excitement.

    • 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
