I'm not doing a dj because I'm only having 10-15 guests and they're not a huge dance crowd. At least for now. I'm also trying to cut costs where I can... I'm hoping to do a beach bonfire at the end of the night. That's more my scene then dancing anyway... and we can go to the disco after if we want!

 

As for photographer, I'm waiting on confirmation but I am hoping to bring someone from around here with me. It is a friend of a friend and I think it'll end up costing about the same as having a Jamaica based Photographer shoot for 5 hours... but I will get a lot more out of it!! 

 

How about you? And seriously, I always feel SO far behind when I come on here. I'm freaking out about budget/money a bit but that isn't out of the ordinary for me either... :)

Our wedding is going to be on the smaller side as well. We will be lucky if we get 15 haha I wish more people could come, but our families aren't big at all. Small things add up so fast, oh my goodnes! Makeup, hair, flowers, sound, decorations, small details. I also am feeling stressed out staying within budget because all of these things adding up are getting crazy expensive...and then I forget we still have to pay our trip there off and I get even more stressed hahaha everything will be perfect though. I feel like I am a lot less stressed with doing it this way than if we had a local wedding...I kind of feel like nothing can ruin just being on vacation lol I agree with the bonfire on the beach...that is so our style too! I'm hoping we can get the photographer that we had planned on to come down with us, because like you said it's basically the same exact price but you get more if the photographer is with you a lot. That is what's making me the most nervous! Pictures are what's more important to me than anything. I need a money tree is what it comes down to

Just wanted to let you all know that living social is having pay 10 dollars to get 50 dollars worth for vista print...that's a pretty good deal I think. If any of you needed T-shirts, cards, coozies, or anything for your oot bags or whatever :)

Hi all,

 

I'm getting married January 19, 2014 at Moon Palace.  I love the palace resorts and have been going with my family for the past 10 years or so.  I'm debating switching to one of the adult's only spa ones like Isla Mujeres, or Le Blanc for honeymoon (those are still part of Palace resorts)- are you ladies sticking around the area for honeymoon?

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
