This things of everything being FREE with Vistaprint is a load of old pony - lol. You do get FREE offers after you have ordered stuff with them but you still have to pay for the delivery so its not FREE as everyone says they make it up on the postage. Plus if you upload an image they charge you extra, if you have colour on both sides of a postcard they charge you extra - it is cheap but not as cheap as you think.

Great idea regarding the six pence - I've already got one and it's kind of been in the family for ages, the women pass it on to the next bride to be and so on. Would offer to share it also, but think my Mum would hit the roof!!

Can't believe how many UK brides there are!
I'm the same - travelling with Thomson and we get 30kg inc hand luggage - my dress will be my hand luggage - we are not Platinum though. Thats 30kg for bride and groom all other guests are 25kg. Some people are coming out with Thomas Cook and they only get 18KG!!

I have to say I am quite good at packing as done alot of back packing over the years. My BMM though is hideous and when we went to Italy she had to use 5kg of mine!!

apparently getting out there with extra weight isn't too bad, it's getting back, they are really strict

 

also remember you have about £30 per person to pay on your way home in departure tax xx

Oh the $50 dollar departure tax - forgot about that! Last time I went the were strict about that too, had to be in dollars not peso's and a fifty dollar note!! Might be worth putting it to one side as soon as you get there!! Although I'm thinking of not paying it and letting them keep me there forever!!

 

Oh does every know that you have to kind of pre book your passports for visa's before you get to the airport. Your TA can do it for you online. It's only a new thing and we weren't aware of it until some of our guests were told the other month when booking!

We had to do it for ready for Las Vegas, but not sure if that covers us for Mexico as well!

From what I can make out it's kind of like arranging your visa before you even get there. It's pretty quick and easy to do - planning on take ours in to our TA over the weekend so should find out more then! Will post more info after!

 

WoodsLou - if you get time can you just let me know what documents you are taking with you. I think I have most of them ready, but just want to check?

Thanks

    • 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
