Yey!!! Finally a date twin :) we also chose condos for our stay, just fits our needs perfectly!

Congrats and welcome to the board, wealth of info here!!!!

 

Cool. I'm surprised more people here aren't getting married that day, since it's during Memorial Day weekend. I thought it would be a popular choice. But condos are totally the way to go for us. We love the flexibility they offer and we have so much more control over where our guests stay, rather than being spread around a big resort.

Well, the location for our ceremony and reception has only four rooms (we're talking really boutique!) So, no, they don't have enough rooms for our quests, hence we'll be staying in several condo buildings nearby. We have the option to rent out the four rooms for the weekend so that the location is completely private, but at this point we aren't too worried about a handful of others being around. The place is on a really secluded stretch of beach, which has helped tamp down my fears of having a bunch of looky loos in their speedos gawking at the ceremony. I'm not overly concerned about wedding details, but that is the stuff of my nightmares...

I was worried about this as well but Amazon had 150 2-pack Ibuprofen packets for $13 so I took a chance--they don't expire until 2013 :) I also got pepto bismol tablets and they last past May as well.

I have bought a few things (so far mini lint rollers, band aids, aloe, sunscreen) but I am wondering if it's too soon to buy the AdvilTylenol etc Thought, will that be expired by May 2012 and will the aloe bottles dry up by then?

Anyone else have these concerns? I was going to buy sanitizing hand gel from bath & body works but thought, is it too soon? I think I am panicking or trying to put off buying till later! lol

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
