    My fiance and I are getting married in two weeks at the Excellence Resort in Playa Mujeres .  Since I have known him I have had two surgeries on my left knee.  The night of my bridal shower I tore the ACL in my right knee now requiring a third surgery in the three years we have known each other!  Some may call it bad luck, I say it's what brought us together in the first place.  I now will be spending my week long wedding in a huge knee brace and ugly crutches that I have used in all my past surgeries.  So I guess I have found my "something old" or maybe it found me?  No heels, no cute dresses, and all the hard work I have done to look my best on my wedding day were destroyed in a matter of seconds!


    Anyway...Anyone have any suggestions on how to spice up my crutches so that they are not such an eye sore on my big day?

      Are you getting married on the beach, terrace etc..? Maybe you can have the resort drive you up to meet your FI in a golf cart. Once there, you can just step out with a cane, if you can. Have them decorate the cart for you as well. Good Luck!!

        Sorry to hear about your knee...

        I think you can still get dressed up and do everything as planned. U can take pics without the crutches (carefully) u just have to be creative and use your hubby as a "prop" . U can always get your crutches hand painted or buy some lace or ribbon and dress them up. I think although you may feel as if your day will not be what you HOPED it to be, you have to make it what you WANT it to be..


        Good luck!!

          Sorry to hear about you knee. 4 weeks ago I was in Mexico and I fractured my tibia and I was on crutches. Th resort was large and I was exausted trying to walk around on them with a big cast. I suggest borrowing a wheelchair when you are there and using if to get around. I don't know if you want to use it for the ceremony or not. If you do I would research decoration wheelchairs for weddings.
