I was doing a cleanse up until about a week ago, but don't plan on starting back on a regimented diet until about mid April also (we go on vacay first week). Simple is best! Especially if you are doing them outside...its a nice contrast. There are times I wanted to get braces again even though I had them already and still have straight teeth...I just loved how my teeth were RIGHT after I got them off back in high school. 

 

I actually have been looking into Sarah from Sproullie designs for my boarding pass invites too! I was planning on DIY, but I couldn't figure out how to get them to look like they should! Plus the idea of one less thing to stress about sounds nice. Did you have yours completely customized? Did she do all the wording too? That is one thing about them...I have NO IDEA what to put on them (or how many tickets to put in each one). Do you mind me asking how much it ended up costing you? They are awesome by the way!

Thanks for the pump on the teeth... everyone thinks i'm crazy and says "you have good teeth already what are you doing" but hey I'm getting married so hey why not ;-)

krsmith,

 

Sarah is absolutely amazing to work with! One word of advise is to book her now and tell her when you want her to start.  It's only $40 or $50 dollars to lock in your date so I would do that.  Once you book her, she will send you a questionaire which is very extensive.  It is as simple as asking your name, wedding date etc...an extensive as what your vision is, colors, themes etc.  I also sent a few pictures and our color palette as example of things that we liked.  Sarah nailed our vision on the first try but not just that, she sent 3 different concepts that she came up with.  Out of the 3 we loved 2 and had a hard time choosing.  Even our bridal party was mixed (this is how much fun we had).  In either case, after all was said and done she is very reasonable for what we wanted. 

 

I don't want to scare anyone about pricing so I will pm you.  Just now that we are not DIY people at all.  I mean there are very few things that I will do, however; being a VP of 5 health centers, having a very active 10 year old, and with FI being a bus driver, our schedules aren't friendly for DIY stuff..  ;-) 

 

All in all we purchased:

150 Boarding Passes with our return address on the envelopes, and all envelopes were addressed to each of our guest (I sent her names and addresses in a word document)

Our envelopes are shimmer as well as the STDs it helps to bring out our colors and is a little thicker.  The holder is a new paper out which feels so silky and smooth which cost a little more.

 

We are sending these out on the on the 13th of April, as we will have everything settled with our TA and would have added our engagement photos on our website.  Speaking of which, if you ladies wouldn't mind going to my website (information on the STD) and tell me what you think.  I would appreciate it.  It's not finished but almost.

Wow your STD's look amazing. Sarah does such great work.

 

I quickly checked your website. It looks really good. Just so you know, MP has a purified tap water. The recommended tip amounts are usually $1- $2 a day for wait staff and a few dollars per day for housekeeping. And you have might want to run a spell check.

Coconoir- what a good idea! I should have you guys check out my site and tell me what you think! I feel like it is a little complicated, but there is just SO much info! Because I am totally uncreative when it comes to these sorts of things, I have borrowed A LOT of things from other BDW brides.

Hey there Kelly,

 

Your site is awesome.  I do have one comment though.  Where you talk about the US dollar, I would state something simple like make sure to carry small bills, as it will be easier for you or something along those lines.  Stating that someone maybe the target of pickpocketing may lead them to think that Mexico isn't safe.  I know that you were worried about this in a previous post... so to me (and I could be wrong) this line doesn't help your cause.

    • 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
