Hi ladies,


I am having my ceremony on the beach and was very lost as to what to do with shoes... not so much for me, but more for my bridesmaids. They have a knee length dress and obviously heels look better, but on the beach they would need sandals. I didn't want them to have to buy two pairs of shoes, so I decided to go with barefoot sandals for all of us. I decided to make them myself and thought I'd share. They are really easy to make, but time-consuming (about 1 hour for one pair). All you need is beads of your choice (from any bead store - many in Toronto!) and Stretchy Jewelry Cord (best is 0.5mm thickness) which would also be found at the bead store. If anyone wants instructions, I can come up with them I'm sure.



Please don't pay attention to my poorly done toenails, lol.... the clear ones are for my bridesmaids (that way they can wear them again and again with any colour bathing suit) and the purple ones are mine (which no one will see anyway under my dress, lol).

Nice! great minds think alike.  I just worked on mine this weekend but havent added pics yet!  here are the ones I made for the BMs.  They are tough to photograph, and also my toes are a mess!

ugh those pics are terrible.  I will hopefully get some better pics of these up close at the wedding.  Or figure out how to use my own camera properly!! lol


Thanks to Chelsea who was my original inspiration!  They did take a long time to make myself, but the BM's I made using the same pattern, so the 2nd and 3rd pairs took a lot less time!  And shopping around for the beads I wanted was super fun!!


For those of you in the GTA, I found a good selection at a little bead shop at warden and eglinton. Tucked in beside the Dollarama!  I also got some of my supplies from dollarama, the stretchy cord and the seed beads (tiny ones).

truly impressive that you did these on your own. i was considering doing them myself as well, so you just inspired me to try something new. hope mine turn out as good as yours.  they are truly beautiful. i like the idea that you did the ones for your girls in white so they can use them over and over again. :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
