    The Dress ADORAE!    

    by Maggie Sottero and Midgley

    DSCN0945.jpg DSCN0946.JPG

     

    I chose a chapel length mantilla veil. Ever since I was little I always knew I wanted a traditional Mexican veil for my wedding.  This one was prefect as it  had little diamonds the sparkled around the embodied lace  and hence matched the beautiful sparkly accent on the dress.

    The hard part was picking the color of the dress White or Ivory

    So which color do you think I picked for my big day?!?!? I cant wait to get my pics on Monday!

          Hi, do you have the website for this hacienda. Also, how far is it from the beach?

          Thanks

              I LOVE that dress, I tried it on and loved it but wasn't sure about the train .... did it bustle well so you could move for the reception without the train dragging?  It looks great on you!

                  The hacienda is in a very rural place, Its not on the beach what so ever. It is in the middle of nowhere. I don’t recommend staying there a week if you want to be close to the water as its not accessible to the beach.  It’s a good 30- 40 min drive from Cancun off the beaten path. It is very tranquil and beautiful though.  It does have great stables and lots of people who play polo rent it out to practice as they have polo courts and equestrian classes there.  Rentals start at a minimum of $ 5,000 usd a day.  You can rent it per day not exclusive per week, which is great as most haciendas require you to rent it for a week!

                   If you want to have a beach hacienda wedding I recommend sticking to hacienda Corazon that looks breathtaking. I wanted and hacienda right on the beach but I could not find one. Hence we decided to have a very casual Mayan ceremony on the beach, the catholic ceremony overlooking the ocean and then went for the whole Mexican rustic hacienda theme for the reception.  In this way my husband got his beach wedding and I got my dream of a hacienda wedding close to my roots. Had we know about hacienda Corazon we would have gone for it, we could have killed two birds with one stone!  It’s funny how you find everything after you don’t need it. LOL.Also the Catholic Church wont allow you to get married anywhere but inside a church so we looked for a catholic chapel overlooking the ocean. It was the next best thing. I would have loved to have a full on Catholic ceremony right on the beach but that is simply not allowed in the catholic faith. =0(  

                  Still if your interested they have three rental properties.  Go to

                    I think the train is what makes this dress look so amazing.  Like a BIG MORON, I forgot to un bustle it when I walked down the isle. AGGGGGGGGGGGG. I was so nervous that day and was just going with the motions that completely overlooked that the train was bustle when I put it on I forgot to let it loose. Nor did either my mom or sisters remind me to un bustle it as they forgot as well.  I only remembered AFTER the ceremony. You don’t know how much I kicked myself in the butt for this. I did let it down for the pictures after I remembered it.    =0(  Thinking about it makes me cry.    My seamstress only did one hook on the side and during the reception the threaded loop that she stitched to have a side bustle broke so I ended up having to have the train down during the reception. It was my fault, I should have asked to have more than one hook done as a back up. So make sure you get more than one hook done if you get a side bustle.  I did have a ring hook to carry the train on my finger and not have to drag it.  Still I would have liked to have been hands free. But after they rolled out the tequila I pretty much forgot and let got LOL.

                      While we took our wedding pictures guests had a welcome cocktail hour where they were greeted with Tequila sunrise and Pi±a coladas along with

                      GOURMENT CANAPES

                      Shrimp mango skewers with a sweet and sour sauce

                      Tamarind lobster tails on a crispy tostada

                       Caviar served on seashells,

                       Tai veggi rolls with prune and ginger sauce

                       Teresa Tart (tart made with puff pastry topped with eggplant, tomato and cheese)

                       That helped them get into the party mood and satisfy any hunger they might of had while we took our pictures and arrived to the hacienda. They enjoyed this while they looked on to a  Mayan fire dancer show.  You can see a tiny bit of show on the video above it was attached to the end of the Mayan Ceremony Clip.

                      After cutting the cake, having toasts, dancing like crazy and slamming tequila all night and getting everyone drunk, we decided to go with a bang. Our after party went into the wee hours of the morning. The limo picked us up and we left our guests watching a fireworks display as we were driven off the estate.
