Two Dresses??

Recommended Posts

I know some of you girls on here have worn different dresses for your TTD and wedding as well as for your wedding and AHR. My problem is a little different. We met with our priest here last night and he wants to marry us in the church BEFORE the wedding in Cabo. I was thinking we would do it afterward but he's pretty strict and basically gave us two dates. One is the weekend right before our actual wedding at Cabo Surf. Which is ideal because then we can continue to celebrate and not have to worry about any of the legal stuff. BUT, my FI's family is a plane trip away and I don't think they'll be able to make it up the week right before we leave for Cabo.


I kind of got off the topic but I need help deciding what wear to our church wedding here. I don't want to wear my wedding dress because I want it to be really special in Cabo in front of all our family and friends. I do want to wear something "bridal" though. I'm already having trouble because I really want our Mexico wedding to feel special but it's important for us to get married in our church too. Am I making sense? I could buy a second dress on ebay. What I really am looking for is one of those little lace jackets that you wear over your dress with a sash. Any ideas?

OMG - you're getting married the day before me in Cabo. I've been looking for another BDW bride that would be in Cabo the same time as me. (Sorry to highjack your thread.)

I think you've got several options. A few of which include ...


Buy a dress of eBay (I got my TTD one on there for $76) ... or just find a nice white/ivory dress that is fitting for the type and style of both your church and personality.


If you want the cute jacket/sash ... why not get a long (or shorter) strapless dress that a sash will complement ... and then a similar small jacket to wear over it.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
