Looks Like Wedding Date Is Changing.....Advice Needed!

Recommended Posts

Hello there! 


My soon to be husband and I had a long talk yesterday about our wedding.  We had decided to get married on December 15, 2010 in Mexico.  We got engaged in April 2010, and he wanted to get married the next month (May) while we were in Vegas.  The Vegas trip was already planned before he asked me to marry him.  I was not comfortable getting married three weeks after our engagement, so we decided on December 15 as that date is the third anniversary of our first date.


We both started new jobs this year (he in January, me in June) and vacation time is at a premium for both of us.  I only have 6 vacation days left for 2010 and he has 7.  Based on what I have seen when it comes to destination planning in Mexico it appears that we would need to take 7 days to make it worth our while going way.  So after much discussion we decided to move the wedding back to 2011, when we can start a new year with more vacation time.  December 15, will always be a symbolic day in our relationship!


I am okay with that.  So now we are talking about eloping to Vegas this year and having a renewal of the vows ceremony in Mexico early in 2011 (February or March).  I still want that beach wedding!


This is my second marriage and his first.  We do not want a huge wedding, we have not booked anything at all, we have not sent out invitations, or Save The Dates.  We have just been spending a lot of time doing research and I only just found BDW two weeks ago!


We have a budget set and are looking to make this as stress free as possible.  I am looking at three resorts in Mexico right now.  Royal Playa Del Carmen, Grand Riviera Princess, and Riu Palace Riviera Maya.  We think that we would have about 10 to 15 people attending the wedding.


I know I should expect costs to rise (for wedding packages, flights and accomodations) with moving the symbolic ceremony into 2011 and was wondering if February or March are bad months to head to Mexico as far as finances go!

2011 should be great. New airlines are starting to fly to Mexico so hopefully you'll find good prices. Anywhere you go in Mexico should be beautiful. And a small wedding should be easy to plan for. Just get everyone booked, get the dress, and you'll have the time of your life. wink.gif congrats and good luck!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
