2015 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone! Im so happy to have found this site. It is very helpful. Ive been to a bunch of DW for my friends and I was a maid of honor for my sister who married in Cancun. But I had no clue how overwhelming it is to actually plan one for yourself! Im lost as to where to begin. I feel like im going in circles...Im getting married APRIL 17, 2015!!!! and I already picked the resort, went to a site inspection and absolutely loved it! I made the deposit and Im comfirmed. I also did the STDs...they are actually in the making. And thats where Im at right now. Im concerned about a TA. I was about to go with destinationweddings.com but found horrible reviews on the net...so IDK what to do. Should I use one? do they charge crazy prices? Im at zero in knowledge when it comes to that. any insite would help please...and YAY for 2015 BRIDES!!!!

Congrats on the upcoming wedding!

 

I am also getting married in Punta Cana in 2015. I am using Patty from Wright Travel (the agency affiliated with this site). She has been amazing to work with! Very quick to answer emails and very helpful! I would recommend using Patty to anyone! They are totally free of charge too!

Congrats! It is a lot of work! I didn't realize how overwhelming it was going to be. We used a local travel agent. She's great! And she isn't charging us anything. I think the TA's get a percentage from how many people book? We sent out an email to everyone and they contact her to book their trips. So that takes a bit if stress out of it. We are also getting married in April 2015 in Punta Cana.

Happy planning!

You sound like you might be in the US? If so, Wright Travel is definitely the TA for you to get in touch with. They are DW specialists and have access to all different perks for groups depending on where you're going! You can get in touch with them right from this site!

I'm using a TA, she's great. There aren't any fees, and the best part is she taking care of all the booking details for our guests so that's a huge weight off me.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
