Thanks to all the brides before me- your planning threads and tips were so helpful! Iâ€™m sure I stole an idea from everyone- so Thank-you for sharing! Special thanks to the RPDC forum brides, for your site specific tips and all the wonderful reviews and pictures you have shared. 9-days to the big day! Wish me Luck!
My fiance and I have been together for over 5 years. He proposed in early September of 2010. He had been out of town several times (for several weeks) over the summer and had the ring for months- before he finally had the chance to pop the question. He kind of just spit it out! But I love him for always being himself- and it was totally him.
Hereâ€™s my bling J It still takes my breath away at times. It was kind of hard to get a good picture.
Bands we chose
Playa del Carmen, MX
We chose Playa del Carmen for simple reasons. We wanted a great all-inclusive that was affordable for all our guests. We also wanted a gorgeous location. It fits both.
Beach Bum Vacations-Steve
BBV has been a life-saver for us! We have had so many changes in guests & rooms. Millions of questions and our TA has been very patient and extremely helpful. I cannot imagine doing a destination wedding without a TA. Iâ€™m glad we chose BBV. Review to follow after the wedding.
Save the Dates
Looking back. We should have spent more time- to make these more â€œdestination wedding likeâ€. We were in a hurry and they were ordered on vista print. We only did a 9 month engagement so not a lot of time to get e-pics done and save the dates out and give people as much notice as possible.
Didnâ€™t believe the whole- you will know itâ€™s the one until I put it on. There was no looking at other dresses after I found it. I fell in love J Sorry ladies, my MOH has all the pics of me in it. So this is the model, of course.
The girls dresses
$$ Saver tip if you like this dress (every season Victoriaâ€™s secret e-mails the coupons for $75 off $200, 50 off $150, etc, so we ordered all together). This is a multi-way dress. Iâ€™m leaving it up to the girls how they wear it.
-- My one concession, he loves Jordans. He had to have these! LOL.
