Also the STD I'm def doing - as Tonia mentioned it's hard to send out invites without pricing so I want to make sure I have all the info first but don't want to wait too long to let people know location and date so they can start saving up.

 

PS I love the way your passport invites came out! I'll def check out AllurementsbyRebecca! thanks for sharing!

I found a template for the boarding pass invites! I can send you the link if you want to send me an email (toniabruyns@gmail.com)  it took me a few minutes to figure out how to actually put things on it, but now things are going well :) I've cerated my STD on Vistaprint and we are doing pictures this weekend and then I will be able to order them :D For the location I'm just putting "somewhere sunny and warm" and the Date as "January 2015" at least this will give people a heads up that it is destination and the time of year... since we won't know specifics until later on. But if anyone asks, we will be telling them our desired dates of travel and see what happens.

We are going to Puerto Plata since it's cheaper - but would love to one day head to Punta Cana. Right now our budget didn't allow us too many expenses since we're saving up for the wedding PLUS it's during the July 4th holiday (we're celebrating my birthday so date wasn't flex).. but I'm looking forward to it either way! :)

Yeah I can see how that time of year could get expensive! It will still be super beautiful :)

Those are beautiful! I FINALLY found a template to make my own and I've gone with the boarding pass invites. I'm hoping it will be a bit cheaper than getting someone to make them but who knows lol. I enjoy attempting to be crafty!

Hi! 

 

We have finally set a date! August 8, 2015 and although it is very far in advance, I would love to start planning and love to see that there are already some 2015 brides out and about!! YAY I am not crazy or alone!! Still have not settled on a destination, but am leaning towards Jamaica.. Any advice on how you ultimately decided on your locale? Not the hotel or resort, but the actual destination??? I would love to hear your thoughts and reasoning! 

 

xoxo 

 

CongratulatioN! keep looking at this site and search for any item you think of, you will be surprised what has already been written by guests here!

I love the "Somewhere sunny and warm" Idea! I think I will def use that on our STD's.

Thanks again!

hope you got my email :) sorry it took a few days! I chcked my email via my phone while at work and then forget to check again when I got home to send you the stuff! amd use away :) I'm sure I took it from something I saw on here... just a good way to hint to people it is destination without having the exact place picked!

I'm totally in the same boat! everytime we think we have somewhere picked, we see somewhere else we love... GAH! I've been told this is the hardest part of planning a destination wedding... actually picking the resort! I'm hoping we have finally chosen the place. We found one we love and it is in the price range we are wanting our guests to spend. Here's to hoping we just stop looking now lol

After a much needed heart-to-heart with my fiance and hearing feedback from my family, we've decided to move our wedding to Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana. It's much closer to the US and flights are cheaper plus we absolutely love it so it just seemed like a good decision. It was hard for us because we completely fell in love with Roatan, it truly is paradise and we're actually considering it for our honeymoon or for a vow renewal but it will always remain dear to our hearts. We're planning on putting down a deposit this fall for our date of June 25, 2015, we couldn't be more excited!! Now just to decide which resort is the most affordable and the best fit for our family. Hopefully we'll have STDs out by January.

    • 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.
