Thanks for explaining that, I think what i'm going to do is wait until we've booked (hopefully February) and then send out STD with details of our website so that they can go there for all the information and then about 6  months before once everybody has booked up send out formal invites to them...i've started working on our magnet STD so hopefully they'll be ready for Feb.

 

I have 2 weeks off of work as i'm supposed to be revising for my exam on 1st December, but i just can't get motivated and the wedding so much more appealing.

 Thanks herbie, i looked at her website but she is not taking orders yet, so i've looked at a few other websites.  I don't need them until February/March so hopefully she'll be taken orders again by then.

I'm doing invites for my guest even though they have all booked. Before we booked we emailed everyone we wanted to invite with all the details of the dates, prices etc. Then when we booked we emailed again with booking reference so that they could join our booking.

 we got thermal mugs for favours for everyone, but have given them out already, so they can use them straight away, and we don't have to hoik them all the way to mexico ourselves, they were about 1,25€ from amazon!

 

ah my list goes on but apparently i've come to work to serve drinks,,,,, not toss it off on the internet....OOOOPS!View Post

 

 

 

Hiya, sorry it took me so long to get back to you, we went back to sheffield for a long weekend for a wedding and mine and antony´s joint hag do..... very very messy business.

 

the seller i used was jcas3024, her email address is juliecashen@btinternet.com

 

the flowers are nice, not real touch, but honestly, for all i want them for, they´ll be perfect!

 

@josie, love your FI´s suit, i feel your pain taking him shopping, antony behaves like a stroppy teenager when i take him shopping!

 

@char, glad you´ve decided on your hotel, it looks lovely. we used allurements by rebecca for our monogram, she was ace, i think they were about 4€each, she did our invitations too, but we ran into problems getting them through customs in spain. we sent invites out just to be polite to people, i wish i hadn´t bothered now, cos only 3 people had the courtesy to reply!!!!!

 

we bought our rings while we were back in the uk, mine´s a plain 2mm white gold band, ants is a 5mm gold gold band. I don´t really like his if i´m honest, but he does, and he´s the one who has to wear it so i´m keeping a diplomatic silence!

 

we´ve booked our Spanish AHR, it´s not until may next year, 4 months after the wedding, but we had to give everyone in england enough time to book flights and find somewhere to stay (or think up a suitable excuse) and we need to SAVE UP BIG TIME!!!!!! OMG we are brassic at the mo, my car has just got fixed and cost me more than a months wagesangry.gif

but we can´t stop spending cos there´s christmas and birthdays, oh yes, and a wedding to pay for. Thank the good lord for credit cards. I´ll just have a nervous breakdown when i get back in January!!! 

The AHR is going to be from about 2 in the afternoon til midnight, the bar we´re having it in is under a block of apartments so kicking out time is early, so i reckon if we start early we should be just about done by midnight! there´s a kids park outside, and we´re going to ask the town hall if we can shut the street off and put a bouncy castle and possibly (depends on weather) a foam pit out there...... is definitely not going to be a formal party!!!

 

ok essay over!

Jo sounds like you had a good hag do, the messy ones are always the best...got any pictures? 

 

Excellent that you got your rings at least that's one more thing ticked of the list.   Your AHR reception sounds good that's exactly what i want for ours something casual where the kids are catered for and the adults can relax and enjoy themselves.

 

I know what you mean about being brassic, i had my daughters 16th last month, Wayne's bday on Sunday, Christmas and then my bday in January, and then we need to put the deposits down for the holiday/wedding in February, oh and then spend the next year paying for the wedding, i do not know how the heck i'm going to do it all, but I always seem to find a way.

 

The good thing is that me and FI have decided on no bday or xmas pressies for each other because we are going to get our rings before the VAT prices go up, it's a bit early but we'll save a bit of money and every little bit helps...we're going ring shopping after my exam is over in December, i'm so excited it will be first wedding purchase.

    • 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.
