Marinemeuwec Cancun Palace 2/19/11 Planning Journal for the BIG DAY!!!

Recommended Posts

Thank you to the site for all of the great ideas and inspiration that this has given me for the wedding.  There a lot of VERY talented people sharing ideas and helping brides all over the world make their weddings special.  I am about a week out from boarding the plane and thought I would start my planning journal and start to give back some of the ideas I have used as well as will add more to the journal later and post a review after we come back :-)


Our Story


JD and I met through mutual friends (my college, his high school) and we had known the same people for years, but  had never met before.  We ended up meeting at a birthday party for one of our mutual friends and instantly had a connection.  There was just something about him that I had to know more and he was very giving and loving from the moment I met him.  We went on a few dates and became exclusive and our friends joked that we already acted like we were married and were inseperable.  We moved in together after a few months and started to share our lives together in a whole new way.  Its the best feeling in the world to come home to your best friend and I knew I wanted to be with him forever.


We ended up taking a trip to Las Vegas and then driving to Utah and visiting Zion National Park.  We were horseback riding and hiking in the mountains when he proposed and it was a really special day.  We actually had to stand on a higher mountain top to get enough reception to call our family and friends to tell them we were engaged! 


Our wedding will be at the Cancun Palace and we are really excited to have it there since its all inclusive and our guests wont have to worry about anything as well as a lot of our guests have never been out of the country so its going to be an adventure!




The Rings



Fiance Ring


My fiance wanted a ring that was more "manly" so its titanium with a simple small diamond in the middle.

Wedding Dress


My wedding dress is a Liz Fields dress and is definately not beach friendly but I didnt care, it has a lot of personality and I think its really fun and has a really sparkly belt on it so I am sticking with it.

Trash the Dress

I picked up this dress after I realized I would probably would sink if I went in the water with my wedding dres on so I decided on a typical destination dress in chiffon.  I am doing a really fun TTD session with our photographer we are flying down there so we are going to do a couple of different looks which I am excited about! Its Sophia Tolli and in all white.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
