erinbrooke124's picture journal - 6/14/11 CANCUN

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!  I thought I would post pictures of my planning process...everything came together wonderfully!

 

FI and I met 4 years ago through mutual friends and made it official -- twice!  We had a small civil ceremony at home on June 7th, then did our symbolic ceremony in Cancun a week later on June 14th.

 

We put our deposit down in April 2010, so I had 14 months to plan :)

 

Save the Date - sent in September 2010

created by Sproullie Designs - ETSY

Parent Gifts - Photo Books from ShutterFly

 

I gathered older family/baby photos and told our "story" through photos, all the way to our engagement pics :)  Parents loved them!

Also, I purchased MIL poem in hand calligraphy from r8chel06 (sorry, no picture) in a black frame.  Here is the poem:

 

Mother-in-law' they say, and yet,
Somehow I simply can't forget
'Twas you who watched his baby ways
Who taught him his first hymn of praise,

Who smiled on him with loving pride
When he first toddled by your side.
'Mother-in-law' but oh, 'twas you
Who taught him to be kind and true,

When he was tired, almost asleep,
'Twas to your arms he used to creep;
And when he bruised his tiny knee,
'Twas you who kissed it tenderly..

'Mother-in-law' they say, and yet,
Somehow I never shall forget
How very much I owe
To you, who taught him how to grow.

You trained your son to look above,
You made of him the man I love;
And so I think of that today,
And then with thankful heart I'll say
OUR MOTHER

 

Then, for my mom, I purchased this custom made frame from thesugaredplums on ETSY.  My mom did a reading of the e.e. cummings poem "I carry your heart" at our ceremony.

Everything looks so wonderful! I adore ee cummings, what a lovely idea! I have been obsessed with those invites from sproullie designs on etsy...  Love them! Just trying to somehow justify the cost seeing how I only need 15...  She just created a new color scheme to include what I am using - purple and orange...  Did your guests love them too?!

@ torilynnsmith - I got the bridesmaids sandals from Nordstrom (BP Shoes) and mine I ordered online (I think from Shoes.com).  They are different.  I had a hard time finding mine; I think the design is no longer made and Steve Madden has a new design out that is similar.  In all honesty though, I liked the bridesmaid's shoes better and they fit better.

Thank you.  I loved the poem and e.e. cummings as well!  I did those invites in purple and orange (almost used those colors to begin with!).  We had a ton of compliments on them!!!  Try talking to Sarah, she did her best to stay within a budget for us.  We didn't get fancy jackets or sleeves so that we could afford the invites, and of course our guests didn't know the difference.

Thanks for the advice, I have been in touch with Sarah, thinking I may order just the pass and make the rest myself... investigating options right now, we have a bit of time... 

 

As for the steve madden sandals, I put them on my wishlist on the site, I believe they are called groom now... comes in a multi colored jewel (kind of fun!) and the standard clear jewel.  they certainly photograph well!!

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.    
    • Hello!  We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
