I was definitely thinking of posting pictures haha! I have them in my external hard drive so you'll all have to wait until I get home haha :P

 

They don't let you take pictures at the chippendales until the end where you have to pay. That was a blast though. We were pretty rowdy and in my group we had everything, from the girls that scream and try to get one of their shirts to me and my other married friend, who just looked at each other and giggled nervously :P. It was a good show, I can definitely appreciate the dancing haha. They asked me up to the stage (to my dismay) and they gave us tasks to do, at least I got the tamest one.

yeah it was nice to get away for a bit before mexico, I felt like I really needed it. Also, stress was running somewhat high between Juan and I, so it was nice to miss each other for a few days :)

 

Back to wedding planning: 

 

- My parents bought me a necklace to wear on the wedding day. It's from the same seller on etsy as the rest of my jewellery. She had sent me a 10% discount after the first purchase and I completely forgot to use it this time, but she actually still refunded me the 10% since it was my second purchase, which was super nice of her! I can't wait until it arrives to post a picture of it and see how it goes together with my earrings and bracelet :D.

 

I didn't want a necklace originally thinking that I'd be too decked out, but then I saw some pictures of other brides and then when I went to fitting appointment I felt like something was missing around my neck. 

 

- You guys remember I bought my bridesmaids some necklaces as well? I'm getting a little worried since according to the tracking they've been in customs since June 1st :S. I don't know what to make of that. I'm not saying it's the seller's fault. She did have a few problems with the supplier but she let me know and I agreed that I could wait a little longer, she actually shipped them promptly after the was able to sort that out. I'm more like "customs, get your s** together!". It's just 4 necklaces!

Glad you had a great time!!  I can only imagine Chippendales!  :)

 

I've been in August and don't recall my sandals melting, HOLY CRAP!!!  We are going in August this year for a week and sometimes I wonder why I agreed to this LOL!!!

 

I find the heat in Mexico was more intense than Vegas. Sure it's not as hot, but that heat/sun is just more in your face! Glad you didn't burn though!

 

Can't wait to see your necklace!

Would love to go to Vegas one of these days.... but it would be with Doug and I somehow don't think he would agree to go to Chippendales....

 

Can't wait to see the necklace!

Oh I'm so glad you had a great time in Vegas! But your sandals were melting? Yikes, too hot for me. Unfortunately I faint if I get overheated, that's why January in Mexico is perfect for our wedding.

 

And the Chippendales were in Vancouver this weekend! didnt get to watch it as it was my brother's wedding.

Hey @@TinkerSofi,

 

It's been a while since I been on here. Glad to catch a breath now today and sneak in and see what you  girls are all up to. You are getting so close now. You excited. Well duh of course you are.

 

I can't believe you went to Vegas, you lucky girl. I want to go there someday just to see what all they hype is about...lol We would love to see some pictures, don't we girls?

 

Anyway, you are doing really well with the planning. Just the little things now and last minutes.

 

Don't forget the pictures...lol

@@TinkerSofi sounds like you had a great time in Vegas and a well deserved vacation from wedding planning!  :) Love that you guys went to see Chippendales! I went to Vegas 5 years ago for my best friend's bachelorette and we went to see "The Thunder from Down Under" lol! It was highly enjoyable!! ;)

Wooo Vegas!  I met my fiancé there!

 

I went at the end of August and remember feeling like I was under a hot hand dryer the whole time.  

 

Nice of you to be able to get away before the big day!

    • 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.
