Leigh2011's Planning Thread - Long with Lots of Pics

Recommended Posts

Wow! Congratulations! I love all the details with the links to where you purchased your items. It's really helpful. And I ABSOLUTELY adore the Chinese symbol for marriage on your stationery. It's a really nice touch for the your hubby's family I'm sure. I'm Chinese myself, and I was wondering whether or not to find a traditional Chinese wedding gown for the wedding, and seeing yours makes me want to find one for sure now. Thanks! Your wedding looked beautiful

The dual ceremony possibility for destination weddings (legal at home and then symbolic at your destination) was perfect for wearing two types of wedding dresses.  The traditional Chinese dress that I ordered online was of good quality, I just needed to take it to a local tailor to get it fitted around the waist - so I would recommend that retailer. 

 

One issue we had with the double happiness symbol on our wedding items was with the koozies.  The base for the koozie was navy blue and the symbol was in white.  Apparently my now mother-in-law thought that the navy blue was too close to black and traditionally the double-happiness symbol with black means death.  So if you use the double-happiness symbol just make sure you pay attention to all of the potential pitfalls!  But I hope the usage of the symbol on all of the stationary made my in-laws feel included in the whole event.

    • 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
