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 :)

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
