1 thing to do down. . .4763 to go!

Recommended Posts

Well, we've finalized our plans and paid our deposit (FINALLY!). We're officially spending three nights (four days) at Paradisus Punta Cana where we will be married on May 26, 2008 and then we're buggering off to Excellence Punta Cana where we've booked the Honeymoon Club Suite for a week.

 

And now the rest of the wedding planning goodness comes into play. We've booked our resorts, put down our deposits, now just to decide on invitations, STD's, receptions, flowers, ceremony locations, rings, dresses, suits, photographer, gifts, OOT bags, flights, menus, guests, headache medication/elephant tranquilizers (thats for me once I become to overwhelmed haha) and pretty much anything else we can possibly think of.

 

I have to admit the WORST part of planning a DW is the fact that whilst I can sit here, close my eyes and just imagine Sarah and I lounging around on the beautiful beach. I unfortunately have to open my eyes and find myself sitting in my terribly uncomfortable chair in my cold office (I don't think they believe in heat here) at work. . . 8 months away from that beach!

 

But oh well. . .as the great Leonardo Da Vinci once said:

"I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end."

 

Take care everyone and please keep the good advice coming!!

 

Cheers friday.gif

No worries! Get it over as soon as you're able and thank you to everyone!

I think we've selected our photographer as well. The lovely Ms. Robin DePaula boasts a rather impressive website and an attractive DW special right now. Even better yet, she's available when we need her!

Now. . .on to invitations/STD's! and then after spending massive amounts of money and having a mild heart attack . . . . shots.gif

    • 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
