The Hardest Part Of A Destination Wedding

Recommended Posts

@@tygrrlily Yes we are having an AHR nothing big i am in the process of looking for places to have that right now. I want it to be extremely cost effective so i am in the process of trying to fine a nice cheap place outside! On our wedding website it talks about how we will be having an AHR but have no details i never really thought of leaving it out because maybe people would just choose the cheaper route...but now i am wondering if i should of. I would never miss any of my friends/close families weddings but sometimes you forget not everyone feels the same way you do!

 

I also read a post on here about AHR Guest favors....are you planning on doing this? This thought never crossed my mind until i read about it on this site. Of course who ever comes to the DW are getting favors!

@@ASAtobe We are getting married Feb 25, 2015 so our deposits are due by June 19th! so its getting close! Everyone is starting to book now but at the same time a lot are dropping out now. I think we will probably have around 20 people most of which are my FI friends and family, I am just thankful my MOH which is also my cousin her and her bf and son are coming.

@@BusyBee280 I wish we could afford to pay for everyone to come! i have been debating even just paying for my 1 friend who i know can't afford it...but really we can'y afford it either especially with having an AHR as well. I never thought of people booking there own tickets through there own travel agent...i did wonder though if people would wait to get like "last min deals" but then i need to know how many people are coming so i can make sure we have enough favors and enough places for dinner ext ext..

 

 

We certainly can't afford to just pay for everyone- we just offered them deals like taking care of the flight in exchage for labor for wedding stuff. The friend that is having the most trouble now will be taking care of setuping up the AHR, and video taping our trip to Mexico to show at the AHR. Most of our guests have the reservations taken care of (parents and such) but we have 2 friends we knew before chosing a DW would have troubles coming up with so much money. Win some, lose some I guess

@ SamanthaC I'm a little worried as to how much my alterations will be with David`s Bridal. My wedding ceremony will be held in the Garden Gazebo so will be wearing heels

    • 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.
