Newbie - Last Minute and Still Undecided

Recommended Posts

Hello! i just recently found this website while trying to do research for a possible destination wedding and it's great!!

 

My fiance and I are doing some last minute wedding planning for July 8th or 9th of this summer because we're both in the military. I just got back from Iraq, and he just arrived at a new unit who told him not to set a wedding date (until last week!) because their schedule wasn't set until then. It's been very frustrating, and we still haven't decided if we want to do the wedding where I'm from (CT - but it would have to be midweek), or destination. And for destination, we just want it cheap for our guests because of how last minute it is, easy planning, and fun.

 

Has anyone worked with a specific destination wedding planner that they recommend?

Congrats on your engagement, and welcome to the forum!

 

I'm using an AI resort, so my wedding coordinator does everything for me. You may want to narrow down your choice(s) of location first!

 

Happy planning!

Congrats on the engagement, and most of the all inclusive resorts have Wedding Coordinators who will take care of the details for you. If you need a travel agent, click the banner at the top of the page. They are great and can often be found on here.

 

Good luck on the planning and THANK YOU for your service to our great nation.

Hi Kim! Since you don't have a lot of planning time left before July (believe it or not!) I would start with one the travel agents who are affiliated with this site (you'll see banner ads across the top of your screen). They have tons of connections with the resorts and can help you narrow down your options quickly. Good luck!

    • 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.
