Newbie ... I'M ENGAGED !!!!!

Recommended Posts

I'M ENGAGED !!!

 

I am so excited to start exploring this website! My boyfriend of 4.5 years proposed to me on December 26th night - I am still so excited and happy!

 

Although we do not have many details - we are hoping to have a wedding in February 2014 - In Mexico.

 

We are looking at the Cancun area - however have not decided on a resort. We are planning a trip to Cancun this February 2013.

 

Any brides have any advice on a resort in the Cancun area to have our wedding :)

We are hoping to have a budget for our guests around 1000 - 1300 per person.

 

Any advice on anything to do with a destination wedding would be so helpful!

 

Looking forward to getting to know all the brides and helping each other plan our dream wedding!!!!

 

YAHOOO !!!!!

Congratulations! I am also looking to get married in Cancun in 2014. I found that Cancun has the best looking beach out of other places in Mexico (top must haves). My choices were between the Dreams Cancan and Gran Caribe Real. I went with the Gran Caribe Real because of their chapel. You should check it out! It's budget friendly also! If you have are not working with a Travel Agent you should. They are of great help as well! Good luck and happy planning :)

Congrats to the Christmas brides of 2012!

 

While the beaches of Cancun are nice, don't skip seeing Tulum, or some of the spots near Playa del Carmen.

 

Getting a travel agent who is experienced with destination weddings AND doing a site visit are very smart moves.

 

We have more tips listed here: http://www.mandjphoto.com/2012/03/tips-for-getting-married-in-the-riviera-maya/

 

Good luck with your planning.

Congratulations on your engagement :))  I am also newly engaged, on Christmas Eve my boyfriend of almost 8 years finally popped the question. We will probably not get married until Feb 2015 on our 10yr anniversary but I can't help myself from starting the planning process already...lol...guess I am just a little excited!!

    • 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
