I saw this in a bridal magazine and it said that you give your mom the flower before your dad takes his seat, but i can't see that working either. don't know, plus would you say something to them out loud so that people understand what's going on?? maybe some recent brides that have done this can help us!! when i saw it in the mag, i thought it'd be really nice to do, but i just can't picture the flow of things, esp with FMIL before you walk up the aisle with hubby...won't everyone be excited and clapping? then FMIL wouldnt get the same attention as your mom....

clearly i wasn't much help lol!!

LOL, I am hoping someone who has done it chimes in. I want to give both flowers to both moms at the same time before the end of the ceremony but I just can't figure out how.

I too will have my mom walk me down the isle and love this idea. I was thinking of tying the 2 bouquets to mine and giving them to the moms after the ceremony before we walk down the isle as husband and wife.

so glad this got bumped!

i love the idea and really want to hear from some brides that did this and made it work!

in my mind i picture stopping at the first row with my dad, presenting the flowers to my mom, and then continuing on with my dad the last few steps to where FH's is and dad actually "gives me away"....then at the end i am clueless! dont want to do it after the kiss because as mentioned people are going to be clapping and excited so the moment could be weird....so when do you do the FMIL? I certainly could not incorporate it into the actual ceremony - my mother would be so jealous! OR - does the groom take the other part of the bouquet after bride arrives and present to his mom himself before the actual ceremony startshuh.gif? HELP!

What a beautiful way to honor the mothers! My mother is going to be hysterical though, so I don't know if I want to add anything else lol. She has been crying since we got engaged last year! We're having 2 poems read, so I think we're going to ask my mom and his mom to read them.

    • 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
