Hello 2012 Brides!! My FI and I have a date: April 18, 2012 - Iberostar Rose Hall Beach! We're going to stay at the Suites but will be having the wedding at the Beach.  This will give our guests the option of choosing one or the other and we can still stay at the Suites :)

Hey ladies,

 I'm too excited, my MOH is on the road from VA headed this way (PA) for our Ladies weekend.  She along with 3 of my bridesmaids will be headed out on the town tomorrow in search of "The One" dress that will rock FI's world and capture all that I am.  The day will consist of:

 

-7:30 Breakfast at my house and arrival for those that live in Philly

-8am make-up trails with Ms. Ellen (she's also coming to Cancun). She will be hanging out with us, to see our dresses and draw inspiration from the ladies personalities and our dresses.

-10am 1st Bridal Appointment

-12 pm 1st MOH/BM Appointment

-1:30pm drop off the youngest BM/Step daughter (she's 19) at her house.

-2:30pm 2nd Bridal Appointment

-Lunch/Drinks @ Bonefish Grill

Then we head to my house so that the Ladies can try on the Two Birds dresses (I ordered sample dresses from NY).

We will go over my inspiration pictures, ideas, DIY projects etc.. while drinking of course.

We have a BBQ to go to but our arrival will be decided if it rains.  If it rains we will finish up a few DIY projects that I have started

 

Sunday Morning, My MOH and I will visit the Cemetery of our best friend and Honorary MOH.  From there we will head to the mall and have lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.  We will shop and MOH will be on the road by 3.

 

I'll let you ladies know how everything went.

 

Have a great weekend.

Hi Ladies!!

 

This is exciting. I'm getting married on April 28th at the Cancun Palace. The save-the-dates went out last week, and the dress has been found (not ordered). I'm looking forward to sharing ideas and learning from everyone's experiences.

 

Congratulations to you all and happy planning!!!

Ahhh! This is so fun!! I was thinking of bringing a photographer from home and then if there us another bride who is getting married the day after me, we could share the one photographer with wedding day and TTD. Does this make sense or has anyone heard of this? Or am I making things complicated like always?

I'm sure you could make it work if you found someone to share with you! That would help in covering travel costs for the photographer I'm sure :) When/where are you getting married?

    • 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.
