Well our little Cesar Chavez come home tomorrow woot.gif and my son is pinkie.gif around the house making sure everything is in order.  If he goes to the crate one more time I think I will put him in it lol.  So knowing the the weekend will be pretty busy for us starting tomorrow with an hours drive to and fro and a pick-up time at 12p there will be no DIYing here.  So, I managed (with my sick tail) to finish our "pop of color" for our welcome dinner.  The quotes were taken from the bible passage 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 all except "Love is Wright"  ;-)

Here's a closeup on the tags I made for the bags:  (each tag has different charms - seashells, sanddollars, compasses, starfish + an inspiring word like Life, Love, etc.)

I am sorry to hear this.  We all have been issues like these.  I have been fighting with my MOH for days now over her unwillingness to pack her bouquet of 6 flowers in her own luggage.  voodoo.gif  Haha.  Well, maybe I'm not quite to voodoo dolls, yet.  She's not even throwing me a bachelorette party or a bridal shower.  Geez.   I feel like with all the pressure of this wedding stuff down in Mexico and work combined, my sanity might shatter.  The funny thing is, people say the whole point of destination weddings is the simplicity, but I think it's actually harder to coordinate something in another country.  This is definitely a very strong trend towards the people we care about letting us down on this thread.  It is sad.

My FI is trying to be understanding but I just don't get it. Nothing would keep me from my bestfriends wedding! WTF!

I was planning on making paper funnels for flower petals, as well.  Yours looks great!  What did you use to secure it--staples, double-sided tape??  I was getting ready to start messing with it, but hadn't figured out what method would be the best.

Here are some little goodies I've been working on:

 

These will hold our blue and white petals in, which guests will toss at the end of the ceremony, and will go in the sand in front of each chair on the beach.  The heart tag says "Love."

I had these stamps already for other projects and thought --- why not buy napkins for $2.50 and stamp them quickly for an added personal touch for the cocktail hour? :)

First, I used double-sided tape.  Then, at the ends, I hot glued them to make sure they stayed together.  (My paper is heavy cardstock, so double-sided tape just isn't strong enough.)  The twine is actually threaded through the paper, too, so it helps it stay together as well.  :)  Good luck on yours!!  Hope you post pics!

Hello Chicas,

 

A quick update, Cesar is home and did an excellent job in the car.  We went to PetSmart and the ladies tried to steel him from us already ;-)  He is home and slowly getting use to his new pad which he did the number 1 twice.... but we were prepared for this. 

 

Cesar in the car nestled between my grandma and son.

to my surprise when I got in the house were several packages for Cesar and also our photobox which will serve as our guestbook (The butterfly and beach 4x6 cards that I made and posted several post back)  So excited and can't wait for FI to get home.

Yes you can use resort credits to take a limo back to the airport, we did this as we had so many left over from my SIL's wedding that I Think we actually all did this option

Ivis is actually out of Miami.  I have her as well, and just spoke to her last week.  My onsite is Kalena.

She did answer one of my questions from earlier this week today!  So, I think she's great!   :)

    • 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
