HELLO FELLOW BDW BRIDES! I'M BACK!!!

 

I apologize for abandoning my journal and this site for so long. It had been a very, very busy stressful time right after the wedding. I was not able to take a breather until now. 

 

I have a lot to catch up, but let's start where I left off...

 

FLYING OFF

 

Two days before flying off, I took the Greyhound from Kamloops to Vancouver to gather myself, groom and pack. I had hair and nail appointments which took a day to finish. I went through my list of things to pack and then went through the wedding things to pack. 

 

In the morning, the limo party bus that we booked to pick up our guests arrived on time. My mom and my brothers were late by 15 mins, and another group was also late, but we arrived at the airport with still time remaining. Sunwing's carry on weight limit is very, very low. Most of us had to stuff things in our luggages to meet the requirement.

 

The plane got off a little late (after they defrost the whole plane) and we headed out to the sun!

LANDING IN THE SUN

 

We arrived at the airport and we were greeted with a private bus from Sunwing for our wedding party.

RIU PALACE RIVIERA MAYA

 

We requested the wedding consultants to help us arrange a welcome dinner party for us. Because of the flight delay, we were late to our dinner. The wedding consultant happened to be at the lobby and was able to arrange with the buffet to keep the welcome dinner party area sectioned off for us.

 

I don't know about other wedding couples, but Arthur and I are always the first ones at any location and last to leave to ensure all our guests are taken care of. The room assignments took a little while and Arthur and I were the last ones to leave the lobby.

During the dinner time Arthur and I talked about the events that we have arranged for the week and just did a Q&A session with everyone. We also handed out the Spanish 101 pocket guide at this time.

 

After the dinner, some people retired back to room, while others (like me and Arthur) are out and about at the bars:

    • 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.
