It's official! We are having our wedding in April 2013!!!

Recommended Posts

I am so happy...we finally decided that we are going to have our wedding sooner, rather than later. We were going to have our wedding April 2014...this was not our first choice but there was a lot happening and we had to work around certain things so we thought it best to stick to a later date.

 

Since we are both really eager to get on with our lives as a married couple, and after much debate, we finally put our foot down and decided to just DO IT!

 

I am so excited and happy and I cannot wait to share our happy day together in front of our friends and family! smile123.gif

So overjoyed and blessed!

 

Let the planning begin and get ready April 23rd, 2013, coz here we come!!!

Yay! Good for you guys! I know picking a date sounds like an easy thing to do for non-wedding planners but as an engaged couple you really have to put quite a bit of thought into it!

Congratulations!!! I am getting married April 14, 2013  at Sandals Negril and our guest traveling with families are staying at Beaches Sandy Bay! My Fi and I are very excited but a little nervous as we have never been to Sandals. How is your planning coming along?

It has it's ups and downs... mostly the communication barrier. But I think everything will work out just fine in the end. We have a great travel agent on our side so that helps. How about for you?

You so right about the ups and downs. We are having problems with our wedding planner. As the resort provided  a wedding planner  we decided to booked everything ourselves and now I am wishing for a travel agent. However things are coming along :-)

I helped design out monogram,  we picked our colours/ theme etc.. our Save the Dates are being shipped and the wedding website is almost finished...so it is starting to coming together. We just did not realize how much goes into a wedding and we both thought a desitnation wedding would be a lot simpler. Now I understand why the Dad went crazy in Father of the Bride. But we are still just under a year away so lots of time. Have you gotten far with your plans? Made any major decisions?

I know... the wedding coordinator from the resort hasn;t been the best person to work with so far. She doesn't budge and sometimes she goes around in circles when she answers me. But my travel agent has done such a great job of taking care of things when I don't like how it's going. She doesn't want the bride to stress which is nice. Definitely the best decision I have made so far in the destination weddng planning.

 

We've picked colours for our theme and we've decided we are going to make our invitations... we shall see how that goes - found a great paper company here in Ontario. Still have to get out Save the Dates from my friend who designed them for us. Wedding website is up and running - I had fun with that. The major decisions are all done I think. We've picked and put deposits down on our resort, decided which travel agent we want, what decor we are going with and who we will invite. Oh I have my dress already picked out and my shoes. I wanted to get as much of the big expenses out of the way because we bought a house and that is coming up. So the plannign is on hold for now since my focus is on that. Really if you think about it... it's not as much work as an at home wedding. It pretty much cuts our work and cost, in half - cost maybe more! Try not to stress too much. We've got lots of time! Just take is one step at a time....

    • 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
