Hey Tiffany! Have you made any progress with finding an alternate resort? I inboxed you a couple options, but I can keep researching options for you if you're still stuck! :)

 

So sorry---it's been a crazy couple of days and I forgot to update. As it turns out, my driver was adding in some extra time in case of traffic.  It will only take about an hour to get to the wedding site, and my friends seemed to think this was no big deal.  Thanks so much again for looking out for me.

That's awesome to hear! There's normally only a little bit of traffic as you pass Playa Del Carmen along the highway and people are turning in at various points into the city, or when you stop at stoplights. Traffic along the highway isn't usually a problem at all. I would account for that road into Blue Venado being a verrrry slow drive though. It's about 10-15 minutes from the highway into the beachclub because the road isn't paved and it's quite bumpy. An hour seems about right for the whole trip! :)

Hi everyone! Been a while but I've been kept busy at work the last few weeks. As a recap, DBF and I have been trying to decide on a destination and I think we have settled on Turks & Caicos. I have one resort in mind and did go ahead and contact them with some questions regarding their packages and available dates etc. The way my work schedule works out and general timing of the year, we are shooting for October '14 in T&C! (DBF said it has to be later in the year rather than May in case I get cold feet on the elopement and want a wedding...he comes from a farming family so if we have a wedding it can't be during the summer months which is a bummer because I've always pictured a summer wedding...but our anni is in October and we'll be somewhere warm so it's a good compromise!)

Ohhhh Which resort are you looking at?  I T&C was on the top of my list - but I had decided on Sandals - There is a Beaches there but we decided that we didn't want kids there so we went with the other top choice of Sandals in St. Lucia --- and YAY for another October girl!  Did you pic a day yet??

P.S.   You get the best of both -  A perfect fall wedding on a tropical beach = AMAZING

We are looking at Seven Stars! They were very quick to respond back but I just need to hear back still on whether we can do it on our date since it actually falls on a Friday and their elopement wedding package says the private "for two" weddings are offered Monday through Thursday...

 

I've emailed one photographer and now I need to email a few others to get some comparisons because DBF thinks that photography is ridiculously expensive for just the two of us!

Thanks Rayn!! I heard back and they said since October is a slow month it'd be no problem! Now the only other thing I'm wondering is if it's totally odd to have the wedding at the end of our week there? I know it takes two days to process our application for marriage, but we would be flying down Saturday the 4th then leaving the 11th (am shooting for our ceremony on the 10th). Like how terrible/strange is it to basically have the honeymoon first then the wedding? Keep in mind it is just the two of us anyway

I don't see a problem with your plan,... if you two are okay with doing your honeymoon before the ceremony that I say go for it!!  

 

We will be at the resort for a week before our wedding which is 5 days before any of our guest...  

 

We might end up leaving the resort a couple days earlier then what we have booked and do a cruise instead (I am working on the details to see if it will work out) but right now 

we are booked at the resort for a week after our wedding but so are some of our guest - so if we end up just staying at the resort we are sort of doing the same thing 

 

I am glad  your date worked out!!

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
