Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Recommended Posts

Welllll.... I just always assumed that it'd be on a beach... after all that is why the DW... BUT I don't know... I know the resort has different options for the ceremony - ie beach- garden - gazebo and you don't actually pick the location until you get there so that you can see all the spaces before you decide. Sooo as much as I assumed the beach was the only way to go.. what if I fall in love with the garden or something?!? :confused: Assuming it is on the beach I will do barefoot sandals and then have a pair of wedges for the reception and dancing. Plus, I figure if I end up picking a none sand location I will just wear the wedges. How about you???
Omg! ! Mee too same dilema. Assumed beach as well I mean thats why its on Turks pretty white sand right? I was worried about the same because I don't choose until I get there too. Gonna try to stick to my guns

I would be heart broken if I did not get the beach for my wedding. that is the soul reason for me to have a destination wedding. If i wanted a garden I could have easily found a garden here in the states!

That's nice of you to include 2 of his

Yeah I felt like it was the nice thing to do. One of the girls is his best friend from college and I'm as close with her now as he is but his sister that was done out of etiquette alone and I'm regretting it now because she won't respond to anything!!!  The bridesmaid dresses need to be ordered by 7/31 and no matter how many emails or texts I send her she doesn't respond.  He keeps calling her and she says she's not getting my emails even though I sent it to multiple addresses and through FB and she's also able to get and respond to my non-wedding related texts. She will be out of the wedding as of the 31st if she hasn't ordered her dress, which my FI is totally fine with.

haha International Love...10 WOW but if you have large families that's easy to do.

This is like the last thing on my list! I haven't been yet and have no idea when I will plan to go look. I did do some online window shopping a few months ago.. I actually found a dress I LOVE - I'm tempted to buy it but I know I need to try on some different styles to see what actually looks good on me.

 

I hope to find one that is a similar cute as the online one I like so I can get an idea if I will actually like it in person.

 

 

How about you all?

You have PLENTY of time to find a dress but just make sure you start shopping at least 9 months before your wedding.  I just barely made the cutoff for not needing to do a rush order because I had 8 months to the day. The designer I chose has a 6 month turn around time and the boutique likes 2 months for alterations (since you live near me you should totally check them out they have a great selection-Bella Sera Bridal in Danvers). Luckily my dress is coming in faster than they thought so I'll have plenty of time for alterations!

 

I had picked out a dress online that I loved but when I put it on it just wasn't me or what I was going for. I actually ended up buying the very first dress I tried on (after trying on a ton of others) and I'm still so in love with it.  I look at pictures and just can't wait to wear it  love.gif

I do too but if it does that's okay. I don't think she really wants to be in the wedding (or even come). She has only flown once, has never been out of the country and has told us a few times that she essentially doesn't understand why we're getting married in MX and it's selfish.  Oh well, you can't please everyone!

I have 5 bridesmaids altogether and no groomsmen. But I'm thinking i'm going to end up with just 2 bridesmaids and my MOH (my sister) I've also been sending emails to them. 3 of them are sisters so I don't know if they just appointed their sister as the ambassador or what but only 1 of the sisters responds to my wedding related texts/emails while 1 doesn't respond AT ALL and the other 1 responds only to baby shower related questions (she's pregnant), It's FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!

    • 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
