Hello girls!! First of ally sorry for my English!!

 

 

A Spanish bride marrying on August 6th at Grand Palladium Riviera Maya with an Italian guy!! Such a mix, eh? lol

 

Time really flyes!! We engaged at the end of last August and in almost four months we are getting married!! 

 

I have alredy a lot of things to firm up such as:

 

Flowers: i still have to decided the arragements for the appetizers area. And I am still having doubts with my bouquet.

 

Wine: we would like to have Italian and Spanish wines but the cost of each bottle at the resort is sooooooooo expensive that for a moment we thought in just beer, lol!! So we have contacted two vendors in Cancún and Playa del Carmen with still high prices but nothing to see with the resort.

 

 

To do:

 

Decide the cake!! I am still having doubts about this because but I think we are going to choose the typical italian: the tiramisú.

 

Shoes!! I am still without them... All that is at the stores now are winter shoes and i want something more like a sandal... With that hot and that environment, I dont want a "close" shoe. i dont want something without heel but nothing very tall. And this is harder to find now.

 

 

Dress!! I have  a dress. I choose a fresh style for the hot of August but just like it is it still seems me a little bit simple. So i am still thinking on a detail: a sparkly belt, a sparky or two arms... i do not know...

 

This Saturday I am going to the store so lets see what the clerk advices me... Later i will upload a photo here so you could give me your opinion!

 

 

 

But I have to confess that now I am alredy calmed... It was REALLY stress to get a good offer for our guests. Somes are coming from Spain and the others from Italy... We found the best offer on a travel agency of our cities. For Italian people was imposible to find something like that so we decided to tell them that in Spain it was half of the price than in Italy.

 

 

So it was a nightmare phoning and mailing one by one to remember them to send the passports and the credit cards numbers for the payments to the travel agency.  My fiance and I had to insist a lot with each of them because there were a specific date to send everything and most of them forgot things... Some of them are older so it was difficult for them to understand some things that we had to explain in most of the cases 5 times!! 

 

After that, they had to sign several documents for the final booking and again the same nightmare!! 

We made a mistake, we told them the real final day to pay for the booking. The second payment they will have to make to the agency is at the end of July. My FI and I are going to tell them all that they have to pay until the middle of July... lol

We dont want to have the same stress that we had at the star of March thinking that some of them were going to loose their bookings...

 

 

 

¡Un saludo!!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
