Felicia's 11.12.11 Montego Bay, Jamaica Wedding Planning Thread!! (old thread, old wedding colors and date)

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah, we will also be using white lanterns. I was told by Sylvia at Iberostar rose hall beach that they have white ones available so that saves me from carrying extra stuff. The lanterns came in a very light 5 pound box. They fit perfectly in the one suitcase I plan on using for only wedding stuff... So far... We will have to see how the one suitcase for wedding stuff works out! Lol

Hey guys! I have officially purchased the first items that will go towards our wedding. Just so you know, Brett and I have gone back and forth over our wedding colors... I mean it was rediculus how many times we (I) changed our (my) mind! And just when we decided on some nice fall colors for a fall wedding in the south. We decided to have the wedding in Jamaica and had to change the colors another 3 or 4 times! So this may be the reason why I am soooo excited about purchasing our decorations...now we can't change the colors anymore! Lol So here it is... 20 Purple & 20 Turquoise Chinese Japanese paper lanterns!! They are 12" in diameter & cost 1.20 each. The 10" ones were 1.09 but I wanted them to be a little larger. I got them from www.justartifacts.com The total was & $48 & the shipping was $17.98. Even with the shipping these lanterns ended up being the cheapest I could find and in my colors. 47415c1a-cd4d-8fbb.jpg

My hubby to be is wearing a tan colored linen suit with a white shirt and the best man is wearing the same pants and a white shirt. Just no jacket.

Here is my Turquoise, Purple & White flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow! I had them custom made from a lady on www.etsy.com . Her store name is Crafting4u and she was awesome! She asked for details about our wedding color and when I told her the colors we were using were Regency (purple) & Malibu (turquoise) from David's Bridal, she gladly went the extra mile and went to a David's Bridal near her house so she could make sure the fabrics matched perfectly. She is also making us a jumping broom to match. I will also post that as soon as I get the pic. 47415c1a-452b-bd1b.jpg47415c1a-4536-53a2.jpg47415c1a-4540-53e0.jpg

    • 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.
