Cleans planning thread **pics and templates** Barcelo Colonial Jan 24 2011

Recommended Posts

Im so excited that its coming up so soon! We leave in a week and there is still so much left to do!


Mostly everything that I have for our wedding was made by me as we tried to keep the costs down. Thank god I have a friend with a industrial printer, it made things WAYYY easier on me. cheer2.gif


Anyhow Here is goes!!


We first started to talk about getting married in the summer of 09. Scott wanted to start having kids and I wanted to get married first. We went to Las Vegas and picked out the ring I wanted and were going to elope, but changed our minds and decided we should have friends/family there. Well, two months later we find out im pregnant lol. We started to plan to get married after our son was born in April and decided on Jan.

The rings:


His is just a simple white gold band and mine is just over a carat Hearts On Fire diamond. love.gif


Next I got the dress, this was from my last fitting.



My sons outfit Chilliwack-20101215-00078.jpg

Scott is wearing white linen pants and a long linen/cotton white dress shirt from Tommy Bahammas.

The Groomsmen are wearing tan linen pants and a off white linen/cotton dress shirt from Tommy Bahammas. I dont have pics of these though sad.gif


My bridesmaids are wearing Jasmine dresses that I LOVE LOVE LOVE!


As for invitations I ended up just telling friends/family in person and sending emails out as we only gave them a few months to book. I will however be making out invitations for our summer BBQ with the rest of our family/friends who couldnt attend or wernt invited.

These are what I picked out, but im swapping the ribbon for blue and adding some flowers:


I started to get things for our OOT bags right away in the summer when we finally decided on a venue/hotel.

I got a lady from etsy to make me bags, I even got to pick my own fabric out which was awesome. msnparty.gif she was very easy to work with and ended up remaking me my bags because I think they got lost in customs. :(



This is everything that I ended up gathering to put in the bags.


and templates for the survival kit, brochure, key card holders and for our crossword.

Seating cards




These are the bouqets for the girls and bouteneers for the boys which I made. My flowers are going to be real though.




This is one of my veils I made:


the inside of the flower has my late grandmothers broach in it, and is also my something blue. 


I also made this as a guest book for my guests to "sign"

our reception is on the beach, or poolside ..our wedding planner hasnt told us where it is yet. hissyfit.gif


This is our cake topper, I wanted something funny and this seemed perfect since 90% of Scotts time is spent playing video games.

I got the bride and groom from Michales and my gf made me the tv and xbox items with her putty stuff.

    • Hey guys. New to the forum. I have a question. Need some advice. I booked my wedding through destinationweddings.. booked grand Bahia principe san juan in Puerto plata. Deposited and all that .. hired a photographer who is also a friend who is coming with my group along with his wife as guests.  I tell the resort because I wanted to clarify I dont really need the photographer that is included in my package I'm paying for.. They are now charging me 500 dollars for my photogrphaer / friend to take pictures on my wedding day even though him and his wife are both guests of the hotel for the whole 7 days. Has anyone heard of this before? Any advice how to get out of it I have fought with the resort wedding planner and the travel planner but i havent got anywhere so far.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm already spending 1500$ in extras, 1700 on package and bringing 24 guests for 7 days and me and hubby staying 10 days. I feel like they should not be charging me for this
    • 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
