JQLONG's Mexican Reflections & Dreams Riviera Maya Wedding Review (Part Dos)

Recommended Posts

Oh....I almost forgot...Shoes.....How could I forgot the ladies shoes...


I had a hard time finding turquoise sandals that were not too high...I am already 5'11 and I did not want to be too tall.  Just when I had given up finding the turquoise sandals...reading a thread on here about shoes...I checked out VictoriaSecret.com...and Voila....i found them...



For the ladies shoes...I was lucky to catch a BOGO sale at Payless


Our shoes actually matched perfectly....we were going for the "Grecian Goddess" look........

Ok...where was I....oh..DIY...


I am not much of a DIYer but....being on this site changed that. 



My DIY sand ceremony set (Cost me less than $8.00 to make...I made another bottle for my daughter to participate)


My DIY Ring Box.....(Cost $1.50 to make)


OOT Bags (Yes....Yes....I too got caught up with OOT Bags)



My Cancun Survival Kit (From the talented people on BDW!!)

These were very well received


Travel Mugs (I just had to get them)


I ordered 25 from a seller on ebay...




Dollar Tree Baby!!! I loved these bags from the moment I saw them


Maracas....well..we are getting married in Mexico....so...


These were ordered from Amols.com (I put the ribbons on)


Flowers...I knew the resort would be kind of expensive for the flowers...so I ordered (again...thanks to this site) real touch flowers from SabellaDesigns.com


Kim Zarobsky did an AMAZING....job with our flowers....I cannot thank her enough.....


Now to put it all together......


I guess I never mentioned our wedding date...eek.gif...We got married on July 4th, 2012 at 4:00...but.....

We actually got legally married on Valentines Day, February 14, 2012....His Mom is older and could not travel with us.  It was important to us that she share in our union so we got married by our county clerk in a special Valentines Day ceremony...



We exchanged rings but put them away after...This was a very happy day for us.  I actually cried more this day than on our wedding day....Getting married ahead of time in no way diminished our excitement for our big day.....




With the help from this site....I created the attached newsletter for our guest....We were expecting 19 people.






See Part Tres....for the Grand Finale!!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • 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.
