Hi fellow 2014 DRC brides
I think I could be the first 2014 Bride. My wedding is just 29 days away :0)
We are getting married on 6 January 2014 which is a festival day in Mexico and the day they exchange Christmas Gifts, I am getting the best gift of all my lovely husband to be Mike. Our wedding is very small and intimate. My son who is 13 is giving me away, my MOH is my 20 year old daughter and my step sons aged 16 and 22 are best men, the other bridesmaid is the girlfriend of my step son. That is all of us just 7.
We booked our wedding after a site visit to DRC last June 2013 when we went to Mexico to get engaged at Excellence Playa Mujeres. We have 2 children who are under 18 so we needed a family resort and it was just perfect.
We fly out on the 28th of December for 14 nights,
Our wedding is on North Beach at 3.30pm it is a legal wedding.
We are having a family sand ceremony and our children are pouring sand with us as they are becoming a new family, we decided to do this to Sister Sledge song "We are Family"
We are having cocktails in the beach bar and then we have booked the wine cellar for a private dinner at 6pm
I have got a beautiful Sassi Holford gown which is a soft fishtail shape in ivory silk with floaty lace that has lots of tiny pearl and diamond details, a simple pearl and diamond side tiara and Jimmy Choo glitter fabric shoes.(barefoot for the ceremony)
My girls are wearing pale champagne pink Talbot Runhoff cocktail dresses and glitter fabric sandals
My Groom has a navy blue Boss suit with white shirt with navy detail on the collar, brown leather belt and brown leather flipflops
Our boys have the same as the groom minus the jacket
We are having all white and green flowers on the gazebo and Mexican Alcatraz Lillies for our wedding flowers
We are using Adventure for our photographs
I cant wait now its so close, communication has been a bit hit and miss with my WC Ayahamint but I have to say that this last few weeks she has really come through and we have our meeting with her on the 2nd of January.
So I wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year for 2014 which is a very special year for us all. Good luck with your weddings girls xxx
