Hi Vicki Oh no that's not good, I'm starting to get addictive to this site lol. Ohhh how exciting for you!! When are you getting married? How about something jamaicany ( I love making up works lol) like a ub40 song etc I emailed them a list of questions and they did come back, took about 4 weeks thou. It's because deal with the weddings that are sooner first. They have booked my restaurant & sent me over the menu to chose the meals which I don't need to submit until 2 months before the wedding. I like the colour turquoise for overseas weddings, my sister in law had that colour and it was lovely. I've been looking at fans too. Oh I've not heard that and I hope not!! Well If they do i guess it could be up to the bridesmaids & mum to at whatever bits you want on the table & you and the groom could the last ones to arrive when it's all done and thus giving you two time together. Yeah that my plan to go down to the beach with drinks & takes some photos. Fancy doing something like your lanterns but not thinking maybe sparklers?? Apparently every night at 9pm there is live music in the infinity bar so thought us & ours guest could head there. Xx

That's what I was thinking too lol. We're on the beach too I'm just about to order mine to, found some white heart shape ones. Yeah we decided to only give invites to the people are defiantly coming and some spares for late bookers. Like you I didn't mind paying more for them as not buying 100's of them. They arrive on Wednesday and posted them Friday....I know it's early but i was too excited plus my excuse that people need to know far in advanced all the information. We picked the Jamaican restaurant as we're in Jamaica. We have a fussy eaters one of the my h2b lol. but he was like if I don't like it or still hungry, I can just get other food later on in one of the restaurants lol. Yeah that's a really good song I contemplated walking down the aisle to that but h2b doesn't like it (no taste in music lol) xx

I know exactly what you mean!! So I'm going to Liverpool with one of my bridesmaids and the rest of the girls that are coming aren't coming to Jamaica and that will be the mad one. Then I'm having another one at my house, for everyone to come to (family, work colleges & friends) it's also my birthday weekend so making birthday hen do lol. Im telling everyone to bring a bottle, I'm supplying champagne, doing a couple cocktail fountains, loads of food and my bridesmaids are doing decorations, games & entertainment etc. But I'm also going to organise a couple surprises for everyone...may get some butlers in the buff & I'm doing a photo booth, going a bit mental with props lol Cocktail making classes are good my friend had one for hen night. You could always have two lol!! Are you going to have one in Jamaica? Us girls were talking about going to the spa for treatments & drink cocktails & just have a giggle xx

    • 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.
