Annette and Cesar's Wedding Journal NOW Jade 5-31-14

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

Well I guess I will start my journal with our story.  We met through mutual friends about 6 years ago when working at a movie theater.  Although the chemistry wasn't there from the beginning, it gradually started sparking as we got to know each other. Our first date (def the BEST DATE i have ever been on lol) he took me to walk on the beach and just get to know each other.  On the second we took the ferry to NY and went sight seeing. Needless to say I was head over heels lol! A year and a half later we had a baby girl! Although it was unexpected- she was a blessing and became our world.  I wont say it was a walk in the park because we were still very young, but we definitely remained strong for each other.  He stood by me and gave me 100% of his support while i was trying to get my BA and eventually landed a good job and i did the same for him.  

 

On New Years 2012 i was unexpectedly surprised when in front of our entire family Cesar got down on one knee and proposed to me  and i of course said YES! Shortly after I began calling venues and vendors... and our budget kept increasing and our guest list was even worse.  After about a year of being engaged we decided a destination wedding would be the way to go.  It cut our budget in half and we saw it as a unique way for us to be married- especially since we've been unique from the very beginning.

 

So we after ALOT of research we decided on the NOW Jade Riviera Cancun Resort.  We booked our date for May 31, 2014 and are expecting about 25 ppl so far!  

 

I recently ordered a proof of my save the dates so as soon as i order them I will make sure to upload the on here, as well as any other cool DIY or wedding related items!!!!

 

Happy planning ladies!!!

Annette

Yay! Congratulations! Im a NOW Jade bride also, November 2014. I'm very excited and just sent out my STDs today :) I can't wait until I get into the heart of the planning.  We also have about 25 guests, and possibly some children (our daughter for sure).  I'm still feeling around for exactly the idea i'm going for with the wedding. I know what colors i want to use, and i know i don't want to be really "beachy" what are you doing?

@@Stack02 we're using a dark purple and silver I believe, or more of a pewter? I'm still very undecided on colors. I originally wanted an orange and fuchsia but it seems like alot of people are using those colors so we decided to mix it up and go with something less "beachy"

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
