Love the ring bowl!  I ordered one from Paloma's Nest - same idea but not as colorful.  I had a custom saying put on ours with the date and replaced the string with a pretty blue ribbon to match our colors.

Jenn - if your dress is close to white (my ivory is hardly ivory looking) then try switch flops - I am obsessed with these.  You can really jazz up the shoe to be anything you want.  You can even try it out on-line to see what looks good together.

Girl! I saw your post in the "show off your shoes" thread and I was dying to find out where those barefoot sandals came from. I'm taking this as a sign - must order!

Per your question on barefoot...I design barefoot beach jewelry (for Brides & Bridesmaids), so it's another option in case you'd like to save the heels for the reception and walk down the beach aisle with your feet sparkling in foot jewels (this is what I did)!  Here is my page on here for [Red-i] By Chelsea: Exotic Travel-Inspired Destination Wedding Jewelry as well as my site! I'm happy to customize any orders as well and I can do a quick turnaround time!

Jenn,

 

You've got some last minute work cut out for you but I'm sure you'll find all of the advice that you need here! Hehe. For me, I made a last minute decision to switch my wedding ceremony from gazebo to beach, so I'll be skipping shoes completely (or going for the barefoot sandals above!) for the ceremony, but I have some HOT heels for the cocktail hour and reception. In my opinion, if you're getting married in the sand, go big or go home. No flip flops for me. msnwink.gif But, that's really a personal choice.

 

For your playlist, is it for the reception? Do you have a theme set for your music? I am just wrapping up my playlist and it's a really cool, relaxed, reggae/bossa nova type of thing... Are you thinking relaxed dinner music or hoppin party music? I had fun with that part.

 

Welcome letter, there are plenty of examples to peruse and take the words that express what you feel and put them down on paper in your own way. I found it helpful to read a few other people's just so that I knew that I was on the right track...

 

OOT bag, I don't think it's a bad idea to ditch the bags and do a gift instead. Whatever you think will be more useful and express your gratitude to your guests will be best. Do you have a gift or a price point per guest in mind??

 

Also, I voted for you! Best of luck!! Here's hoping our fellow June bride wins cheers.gif

Agh...I still haven't figured out my new, old, borrowed, blue.  here's what I have:

 

old:  nothing!!!!!  I guess my e-ring is technically a year old now, but I'd rather have something better

new:  pretty much everything - dress, shoes, jewelry, undergarments, etc

borrowed:  hair pins from my friend's wedding but I think I'm changing my hairstyle and the new one won't accommodate it.  She also lent me her purse (a pretty mother of pearl clutch) so that will do even though I'm not wearing it for the ceremony

Blue: Temporary tattoo (ordered from the Knot)  It will be placed somewhere visible only to fiance - either lower back or hip.

Fun!!

 

Old: I thought I could use my earrings and necklace, since I bought them last year in Mexico...but apparently that doesn't count! haha...so I'm thinking I might wear a diamond ring on my right hand that was passed down to my mother by her great aunt...but I'm a little afraid of wearing another diamond ring??  Would that be wierd?  I also have a pearl ring that my mother passed down to me that I would wear?

 

New:  duh! haha...everything!!

 

Borrowed: My mother is giving me a pearl bracelet to wear, also on my right

 

Blue:  I have cute VS undies that say "bride" in blue!

Hey ladies!

 

How is everyones planning coming along?  We are really getting down to the wire.  I leave in 2.5 weeks, it is so crazy!

 

I am pretty much done, I just need to finish a few last minute things.  I still need to find a flower for my hair, a dress for rehearsal dinner, finish the table designations, make tags for our maracas that we are doubling as place card holders, book the cigar roller and I think that is it!!

 

My old and borrowed:  A blue sapphire and diamond ring that was passed down to my mom that I am going to wear on my right hand.

 

My new: Dress, shoes, etc.

 

My blue: VS undies that have bride written in blue on them.  (Jess we probably have the same ones!)

    • 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
