I'm getting a fake tan too...Only because I'm gonna burn if I don't...even with 60spf on I burn, so base tan it is. You are so on top of everything! You have no need to worry! I wish I was 50 days out again so I could get some stuff done...it just flies by!!

 

I've been looking into the GoPro but I'm having a hard time figuring out which one to get and what accessories are needed...where did you buy yours?

@@Meandhim @ I'm thinking of getting a base coat too before I leave...mainly because I still have tan lines from 2 years ago (i'm not even kidding). I think I mentioned my 'headlights'(as Sean likes to call them) at our last GTA meet up. They just never see the light of day and the tan lines will show with my dress.

 

I also have this really great sunscreen it's only SPF 30 but I tested it out in Sept when I was there and I didn't burn at all and I usually burn pretty easily. I was a lobster at my cousin's DW. The ingredients are also really safe to use (one of the few that they let into ecological parks like Xcaret). It's a little pricier but I think it's worth it not to get a burn. Let me know if you want more info and I can PM you the details! :)

Me too!! I burned my first trip to Mexico pretty bad and I can still see the lines from 3 years ago!

 

I started fake tanning but ran out of time. You need a month or more to really get a tan so get on it ladies. I went for three weeks and you could barely tell lol

 

I am fair skinned so I didn't go for long periods. Maybe 7 mins then worked up. That said I used SPF 60 every hour and did well. You just have to apply apply apply. After my first oops I learned my lesson. I personally also feel the spray sunscreen works better.

 

You could also buy 110. It's harder to find but it's out there.

 

Go pros rawk. We don't have one but do have a waterproof Olympus and best money we spent :)

My photographer keeps telling me he can work magic but can't photoshop sunburns! So I'm going to be very careful in Jan!

    • 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.
