I got everything off etsy.  The bracelet asn't custom just something I found while searching on etsy and fit closely.  My earrings arrived yesterday and they are perfect, now just waiting on the bracelet to arrive so I can make sure the pearl colors match.

I think even if the pearl colours don´t match exactly it will be very hard to notice.

 

On another story, going back to my planning... I´m stilll waiting for my invitations to come through The STD were sent long ago although  very few people have actually booked. My colour theme isn´t decided yet. I´m still thinking about purple and orange or earthy tones.  When that issue is settled I will choose the flowers for my centerpieces and for my bouquet and my BMs , the bouttonieres, the wrist flowers for our mothers, the pareos (sarongs) for the chairs. I´m having a gazebo for the ceremony although that isn´t  for sure either as I don´t know yet if the ceremony can be held out on the beach or if it has to be in a real church. The reception will take place by the pool where cocktails and mexican hor´s d´ouvres will be offered l and there will be 10 round/ squared tables with 8 people  on each. There will be a special table for my FI , me and the wedding party. We are having a seated menu with a first and main course, desserts and wedding (fake) cake! 

 My WC suggested this  ladies mariachi band ( with fucsia outfits) which sounds like fun, but I still have to think about it. I´m getting an open bar for five hours and once again I don´t know if  I will get the live band or the DJ. For sure i´m getting the mobile shot bar for an hour!!! HAHAH

My dress is at the seamstress,  don´t have the bridesmaids dresses yet. Still waiting for my shoes to arrive....  Trying to organize a tour to Chichen Itza for some of my guests...OOOOOOOOOOOOO i feel like I´m way behind everybody in this thread!! 

 

I don´t know if I have left something out...

I don't think you are behind Nan, I've been planning for 2 years otherwise I'd probably have nothing.  I think if you really like the orange and purple color scheme then you should go for it. You can always incorporate the earth tones into your accents.

mexican-dress 275 copy.jpgmexican dress 1.jpg I have been thinking if this dresses would be Ok for my bridesmaids. They would be purple and orange. the first one could combine a purple dress with an orange belt and viceversa.  Are they too informal???  What do you think?

You are doing great!!  Believe me, you will come to a lull period, where there's not too much to do.  That's where I am now.  Well, there's stuff to do but it needs to wait til later. 

 

What do you mean by "fake" cake?  I am debating on what to do about our cake scenario.  It's so expensive for a large group.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
