Thank you .. Thank you!! This wedding would not be possible if it wasn’t for this site.  I immediately became obsessed when I found it.  Lots of my projects were DIY and also became a huge fan with Etsy.com.

          Special shout outs to the RPRM brides!

           

          ENGAGEMENT:

          Shane and I got engaged last year in April, on our anniversary.  We knew we wanted a very intimate wedding with just our immediate family so why not do a destination wedding… everyone can get a vacation out of it also.

           

          RINGS:

          My FI very secretively plotted by email and phone calls with my aunt to get my e-ring- which was exactly what I wanted

          LOCATION:

          Riu Palace Riviera Maya

          Playa del Carmen, Mexico

          riu.jpgriu1.jpg

           

          COLOR INSPIRATION:

          Our favorite colors- mine green, his blue

          13.1.jpg13.jpg

           

          THE DRESS:

          After multiple boutiques & many many dresses, I found my dress at the last store we went to that day….surprisingly at Davids Bridal- Galina Signature

          Hanger from Etsy.com - aressa

          3 dress.jpg3 dress 1.jpg3.1 hanger.JPG

          MATRON OF HONOR:

          Without question, I wanted my older sister as my MOH.  Since she lives 3000 miles away, I surprised her with a bouquet of flowers and asked if she would do me the honor and be my MOH.

          Our Legal Day:

          We legally got married exactly 1 year from our engagement day & anniversary. (so that we don’t have to do blood work & paperwork at the resort)

          Since some family & grandparents can't make it to Mexico we invited them to be a part of our “legal day.”  We had a  minister come to our house for a quick 5 minute ceremony and then we went out for a nice lunch.

           

          Dress: from Arden B.  (coincidentally looks like a mini version of my wedding dress)

          Our Legal Day:

          We legally got married exactly 1 year from our engagement day & anniversary. (so that we don’t have to do blood work & paperwork at the resort)

          Since some family & grandparents can't make it to Mexico we invited them to be a part of our “legal day.”  We had a  minister come to our house for a quick 5 minute ceremony and then we went out for a nice lunch.

           

          Dress: from Arden B.  (coincidentally looks like a mini version of my wedding dress)

          Shoes: (something blue) from Forever21 (great bargain)

          Since our guests couldn’t make it to Mexico, we brought a taste of Mexico to them.
