Hi there, we share a wedding date! It's hard to believe that it is almost just a year away. I've been taking comfort in the thought that I still have forever to plan:) Glad to have a place to come and get/share ideas. Thanks!

Oh wow and you are from C-bus too!! Where is your wedding?

Nicyx - I love your dress!

I'm going to dig around and share what I have so far, I have my resort Dreams Tulum, we will be booking our trips in June or July once flights are released. I'm working on my passport STD's this week. I have my dress, wedding band, and just ordered my bouquets and ceremony flowers from Angel's Accents. Going BM dress shopping with my MOH in June while she's in the states (she lives in Germany).

Great idea to start this thread!!! I'm most likely going to be May 7, 2011. FI and I are going to Playa this May (I like to call it our negative one year anniversary) for a site visit. We are visiting the Royal in PDC as well as Hacienda Tres Rios but are leaning toward HTR because it's a smaller/more intimate resort and only does one wedding per day.

Other than that, I've purchased my dress, hired DJ Doremixx and have a photographer that we will be flying in. I also have a quote from Shavon's wedding silks and am planning to use her for bouquets and bouts. Oh...and the boarding pass STDs are in production!

I'll have to get some of my pictures together to post too.

I can not wait until the one year mark!!!!!!!

Hello my fellow May 2011 brides! I'm so excited there's finally a thread for us!

 

I just booked my date about 3 weeks ago and my Save the Dates are in the works! I'm so excited!

 

Here's a pic of my dress (Maggie Sottero) and two hairstyles I really like. I will have to use extensions to pull off either of these looks. Sorry the pics are so big - I'm not sure how to make them smallerundecided.gif

 

Anyway, looking forward to getting to know everyone!

 

Mel :)

    • 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
