Planning our Riviera Maya Wedding!

Recommended Posts

Well I don't know if I'm crazy (good possibility) but I can't seem to figure out how to edit my posts...

Here's all 3 bridesmaid goodie bags filled with treats

 

I also put together a version for our moms - pashmina, lotion, sleep mask, sanitizer, lotion.

My Shoes!

My ceremony shoes

I wasn't completely satisfied with them - they "needed something"

So I started playing around with ribbons and jewels etc, and found the perfect thing - strips of rhinestone and pearl stickers from Dollarama! They completely change the look  - I'm so pleased with how they turned out.

 

My Reception Shoes

I got a super-cute pair of white, low heel flipflops this summer and dressed them up with white satin ribbon and pearl beads.

They came with the pretty bows.

My bridesmaids and I actually had a shoe-decorating party, and we all added beads to dress up our shoes. They're all wearing the same wedge sandal in different colours, and added beads etc to suit their personal styles and dresses.

Then we got creative, and they made earrings and necklaces to match too!

 

Take 4 girls, add beads and jewels, mix in hot glue gun plus needle and thread, plus munchies, and you have a creative party!!

They are good quality paper parasols. I got my white one from Creative Bag, and then 3 white ones for the girls at a wholesale shop for $3 each.

I used a sponge brush, and thinned the paint out with water so light will still shine through. I also painted the insides, but it's more of a wash (mixed even more water with the paint) just so the insides weren't white (although the darker colours showed through fairly well)

Then hung them to dry. I also painted the top plastic cap with full-strength paint.

 

This is cute.  I wish I'm more creative to do something like this!

Oooo, your wedding is sooo close and I just love, love, love your creativity!!!

I wish I was crafty like this, but alas I must stick to purchasing my things.

I love your OOT bags and your other goodie bags, such great ideas!

Thanks so much for sharing, I know it will be beautiful!!

Thank you!!

 

So, set back today.... the resort can't get my flowers as they are out of season!!! I agonized over my choice, as I originally wanted to feature phaleanopsis orchids (waaay too expensive), then plumeria (too delicate and not available) so I finally got all excited about hibiscus, and today got an email from my WC that they're out of season!!!

 

Back to the drawing board I guess!

Sorry to hear about your setback :(

 

If you are really set on certain flowers, have you thought about using  an outside florist?  They usually work out cheaper than your resort, even after a delivery fee. You will probably be able to get exactly what you want.   I am in contact with Marvin from Maya Floral for my May wedding, and so far he has been great!  Marvin@mayafloral.com   I am sure there are other great florists in the area as well!  

 

Good luck!

Hi AndreaandAaron,

Ohh, you're a double A couple too :D

Our wedding is just over a week away (we leave next Thursday 6am!!), so I don't have time to switch florists. Lesson to be learned: don't take so long to make up your mind, so you have time to regroup!! Oh well, it will be gorgeous I'm sure.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
