Hey Ladies!!!! I'm saying it..everyone ones -- ITS MY TURN!!!!! lol ) Thank you to everyone that has helped me come up with the most amazing ideas to make my wedding one of a kind. I can't even begin to imagine what my wedding experience would be like without these great ideas (although I do know there would've been no passport invites...no OOT bags..no pre-travel brochures..no good! haha)
I will try to remember to post my thread links to everything I've done along the way and I will post any templates I can think of at the end!
Here we go!!!
We got engaged 4 days after our 2 year anniversary, with pretty cute reasoning. I always had this running joke with my FI that I had never dated anyone longer than 2 years, so if he wanted to keep me, he had to propose by then! Of course I was joking, but he must have thought it would be perfect to really do ) and I was shocked as ever!! He had actually planned on proposing on our anniversary, but the ring didnâ€™t come in in time! So he ended up proposing the day it came in â€“ 4 days after!
My sister-in-law took our engagement pictures at a local park that we frequent...here is one of my favs )
Let the Planning Begin...
I was so excited and surprised that I didnâ€™t want to wait one minute to start planning!! I chose Riviera Maya pretty quickly because it was affordable and I have heard great things about it, so I researched day in and day out for a resort until I found the perfect one â€“ Aventura Spa Palace. This resort had the adult only aspect that we wanted, and offered a great wedding package.
As soon as our wedding date was confirmed with the resort, I did the â€˜non-traditionalâ€™ and sent out a basic STD that announced when and where we were to be married, with more information to follow. I just made a real basic DIY magnetâ€¦ (thinking back I wish I would have taken more time to really make something nicer, but I think I made up for it with my invites)
(I think its making me submit now....more coming!!)
