I am so excited but I have never been to an overseas wedding and dont know what to expect.  I feel a little lost at what to prepare for and budget for until my details come through.     Any help from a Le Blanc Bride or bride to be about their experiences would be great....  HELP!

Hi weddinginmexico,

 

I think your day will be spectacular because of the love you surround yourself with. Just plan enough to allow yourself to be stress free but enough to let whatever happens, happen.

 

Tip: Do your best to confirm your ceremony at least 2 hours prior to sunset (5:00 PM for July). This will not only save your guests from mid day but will also allow us to take advantage of the gorgeous end of the day light for your portraits session :)

 

Time Line: Destination weddings are much shorter then at home weddings, so consider 30 minutes tops for your ceremony, followed by an hour cocktail (great time for portraits) and immediately after the reception. We recommend to do your toasts and dances in between plates to keep the momentum going and entertain your guests!

Hi! I am happy to see this new forum!! We are getting married in May 2013!  I have some ideas but would love to hear from brides that are planning currently or brides that have already gotten married at LeBlanc. 

 

I am planning on having the ceremony at 5pm on the beach (I chose the Signature Package) We are thinking we are going to have about 30 guests. Then planning on having an hour cocktail party afterwards. My wedding planner was saying that it is open bar with a choice of some apps which I still have to pick out.

 

The reception I am thinking I want on roofdeck which seems to be fun! Does anyone have any suggestions on the food that you chose or are choosing? I was thinking doing plated seating and since we can't really taste the food before we get there, wasn't sure if anyone had any suggestions? I am thinking to keep it pretty simple but not too boring at the same time. The list of food is SO long, so it is overwhelming. 

 

I still need to pick out what DJ package and lighting we want. 

 

Also, does anyone have any suggestions on bringing their own decorations for the reception such as anything to put on the tables, etc? Or is that something that LeBlanc can do? I just don't know how much we can really bring on the plane.

 

Thank you and can't wait to hear other brides ideas!

Hi Melissa!

 

 Congrats to you! We're getting married at Le Blanc next year! As far as decor, we are working with Zuniga Productions which is a usual vendor for Le Blanc. They do both floral and decor, will work within your package and quote anything extra you may have in mind through your planner. Since they are a vendor preferred by the hotel there are no extra fees to go with them. There is also Creative Cancun and no extra fee for them either. I heard the Le Blanc DJ is great so we will be going with him. Haven't gotten to the menu yet but looking forward to that soon! Here are links to both places if you want to see and get and get an idea.

Happy planning! Hopefully we can help each other throughout the process...can't wait to see the pics of everyones events next year!

    • 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.
