Herbie - Love your rings. Yours is like mine set with diamonds, as FI says i do love a bit of bling ha ha... cant wait till we have ours at home :o) i will just look at it all day ha ha

 

2bewed2011 - welcome along :o) Herbie's hotel was one on our short list. Lovely hotel. Along with Dreams Riviera Cancun but after researching most of the hotels in Mexico we went for the Barcelo Maya Palace. We had looked at alot of hotels (and i mean me my BM and FI for about 5months debating each of them along the Riviera Maya, lol) but just fell in love with the look of the Palace and the good reviews etc. It just had everything we were looking for really. Something for everyone and the gazebo is lush and we just cant wait to get married there :o) You will know when you've found "the one" although it is defo the hardest part, chosing the hotel... good luck with your search

We spent about 9 months deciding where to get married..... this is definatly the hardest part..... we chose Riu Palace Riviera Maya because it was the 1st place that we both fell in love with everything.... others we looked at stephen loved bits that i liked and i loved bits that he liked.... then we came across the Riu Palace and "WHAM" we both fell in love with it :-)

Its perfect for us and our familys and kid friendly to which we needed :-)

Michelle is right, when you find the one you will know.... bit like the perfect dress really!!!! :-) x

Hi 2beWed2011, welcome to the forum, as the other ladies have said choosing the hotel is the hardest part.  I'm not getting married until July 2012 and I thought i had my hotel sorted with The Gran Caribe Real as it had really good reviews and I loved the Gazebo, however after researching it more it just wasn't for me even though it had excellent reviews, I looked at travellers pictures on trip advisor and didn't like the location of the gazebo or where the kids club was located as well as large groups of american college kids going there every july, which would be fine normally but not on my wedding week, so i was back to square one. 

 

I can honestly say i have probably looked into EVERY hotel along the Cancun strip and have finally settled on Dreams Cancun.  First and foremost it has a beautiful clifftop Gazebo, it is an excellent resort for kids, good variety of restaurants, surrounded by 3 beaches, all the reviews i have read say that the staff go above and beyond and most importantly every wedding review that i've read on here all the brides have said that they had the wedding of their dreams.

 

Good luck with choosing, you will get a lot of information on this forum, let us know which one you go with.

Hi Ladies

 

Well i thought i had managed to steal a bargain with the bridesmaids shoes however it's ended in disappointment and i am back to square 1!!!!

 

1 pair of the shoes arrived but they were marked with some kind of red ink and the rest of the order barratts were unable to fulfil so i have had to organise a full refund and start searching again i am gutted as they were perfect and exactly what i was looking for but hey ho back to the drawing board.

 

Charmaine....The shoes are really pretty will definatly have a look at that site, not sure what the boys are wearing as shaun wants to choose it himself!! last time we spoke they was talk about white linen suits but still no decision made will keep you posted though, what about you have you made any decisions?

 

It's scary to think i am now only 10 months away aarrgghhhhhh thats going to whizz by whoooo

Welcome along all the new b2b who I havent spoken to yet!!  Enjoy the early planning - it only gets more stressful the closer you get :-))))

 

Love those flip flops char!

 

Had my hen party on Saturday nite - i am far to old to stay out until 4.30 - i couldnt move on Sunday!  When shopping with BMs on Monday and got them a pashmina each and flower for their hair; yesterday got my underwear and my final dress alteration underway. 

 

FIs stag next weekend, Christmas shopping to do and then all of the sudden it will be time for us to depart - arrrggghhh - 7 weeks on Friday.  Gonna have to do a final list tonight and work out how much money I need to find in 7 weeks - we have been so lucky though we havent used our credit cards once - but have had no money to ourselves for months - but I'm sure I wont regret it  x

    • 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
