Hello lovelies,

So I have some awesome news to share with you. My fiance Ryan and I just won a dream wedding from Colorado's Best TV. We are so thrilled and elated!!! This is beyond our wildest dreams. Needless, to say we will now be having a wedding in CO instead of Mexico. I just wanted to let you know that you probably won't be seeing me as much on the boards. I promise I will check in to see how things are going for you all and of course all those beautiful wedding pics. Thank you all for your love, support, and advice over the last year. A part of me will be jealous of all your pretty beach wedding pics.

Best,

Melissa

Oh Wow, congrats ! This is so exciting ! Having a wedding at home (and paid for???) is the ultimate. Have fun ! And now, what you're going to save from being spent in Mexico will be for your beach honeymoon ! (And if you still want pictures of you on the beach in your wedding gown...bring it to your honeymoon and wear it again !)

Is anyone planning to get maracas?  I found some on amazon but if they're easy to find and buy in Mexico, I'd rather save the luggage space.

I'm not sure on how easy it is to get maracas down in Mexico, but I know there were posts about it a lot of pages back. I have contacted and am most likely using maracasmexico.com. She responds very quickly and the maracas are shipped to the resort. Hope that helps!

Best, 

Emily

 Hi danda,

 

Did you want a lot or a little amount of maracas?  I'm asking because they sell them at the resort gift shop...they are really nice but a bit more expensive then if you wanted a bunch of them and bought them in bulk online.

So glad to hear everything went well. Hope you are enjoying your honeymoon! Do you happen to have a "getting ready" timeline from your day?
Sorry for the delay in responding or posting anything. We came home and instead of relaxing have started looking at buying a new home - never a dull moment! Here is my getting ready time line: The night before, my dress and the grooms attire plus all of our attendants clothing was steamed and delivered to our room. My hubby and I didn't follow tradition and stayed in the same room the night before. It was actually really nice, I was able to get a great sleep because at that point all the planning was done and just had to trust that everything would come together and it did. We were able to be excited together and talk about all the hard work and enjoyment we had put into the wedding day. First off I need to highly recommend MVP Hair and Make-up Artistry, Melissa Parry and her team are amazing and know how to make the bride and her girls feel amazing on the big day. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to feel like a more amazing version of themselves. She comes equipped with everything you could need to get ready and asks what you envision for yourself. If you need a little help in deciding what might look good, she is able to choose hair and make-up that best suits you. I woke up at 7:00am and my hubby ordered me room service breakfast before he got all of his things together to move to my brother in laws room to get ready with the guys. (Much later of course, I think they spent the morning in the pool) I showered around 8:00am without washing my hair as Melissa says that "dirty" hair is actually easier for her to style and that she has dry shampoo if it needs it. I moved my dress and all my accessories to my MOH's room in the building next door and Melissa and another girl who works for her arrived at 10:00am We began getting ready around 10:30am, me being the last to have hair and makeup done. I had three bridesmaids and it took two of them until approximately 2:30pm to do all of our hair and make up, including touch ups. Our ceremony started at 3:00pm so we were able to get outside for a few shots with the photographer before Ramon called the room at 2:50pm to advise he was sending the golf cart. 3:00pm - Ceremony followed by champagne toast and group/family photos 4:00pm - Cocktail hour which we got to enjoy the first part of before going to take photographs. - Our signature drink was a Caesar (guests could also order any drink of their choice) - We went back and forth on wanting the cocktail hour and ended up being so happy we went with it. Our guests raved about the appetizers and loved that they had a place to mingle while we were gone. If you can fit it in your budget I highly recommend it! 5:00pm - Reception - We were introduced by our MC followed by a speech by the best man, maid of honor and us before dinner was served. 5:30pm - Dinner service - 3 more speeches after desert: father of the groom, father of the bride and a toast to the bride by my aunt 7:00pm - Bride and Groom first dance, bride and father dance, groom and mother dance, then dance floor open to everyone. - Another item we went back and forth on was the light up dance floor, and I am SO happy we went with it. It was a huge hit. Almost everyone of our guests danced the entire evening, and still talk about how cool it looked after the sun went down. 8:30ish - Cake cutting 8:45ish - bouquet and garter toss Dancing until the reception ended at 10:00pm, we then had a few drinks in the lobby bar before going to Eclipse night club for a few dances and then called it a night around midnight. We had the Divine package and didn't know whether or not to add the extra hour for the reception, again I am so glad we did. I think this depends on the size of your party and whether or not people like to dance. We were able to save money by using the Wedding Ap on iTunes and not rent the DJ. This was a great choice, we picked all of our own music which probably kept everyone on the dance floor and saved a bunch of money. Best investment we made: Photographer Dean Sanderson. I love photographs and the wedding day goes so fast, he takes amazing photos we will have to look at forever. As the photography was included in our resort package I requested they take photos of the cocktail hour while Dean was busy taking photos of us. Sorry this is so long, there is a lot I didn't add believe it or not so if anyone has questions ask away :) It was the perfect day, they do the most amazing job, and are wedding pros. I would recommend anyone who wants a destination wedding to have it at the Now Sapphire. I can't wait to return for an anniversary. Happy Planning!

    • Sure, this is a question of moral values. Besides, if your relationships with girls are so strange, so you can ask her what she thinking about this. As for me, a bachelor party it`s the last time of your free life. Anyway, you need to have a girl last time before the wedding. I`ll recommend you to visit this site, there are nice prices with beauties. Now your turn, just need to distribute roles for ladies  Good luck!
    • It a wedding in a few months. I`ve thought about girls. Is it ok to have prostitutes at the party, or better to have a normal stripper?
