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!

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.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
