Sitting here today watching the rain come down... This week has been full of ups and downs... But all in all its been awesome! It's our last full day day here and I'll be back to reality late tomorrow night... I can't believe I haven't taken any pictures really. I'll have a full update and hopefully some pictures soon! And for my TO girls I'll see you Friday for sure! Here's the view right now from my covered ( thank god!) balcony post-268499-144871082673_thumb.jpg

It's all Over!

 

Well I'm back and I wish I was still there! I had the best time and married the Love of my life!! Here's what happened:

 

Day Before Departure:

 

Two of my Bridesmaids & their husbands, my Brother & his gf, and one of Marks friends & his gf arrived a day early. AC had put them up in a hotel by the airport for free because of the earlier trouble they gave me. We decided to stay out there with them. For the girls who live just outside of TO the holiday inn has great Park and travel deal...other hotels must have this too...you stay one night and park your car for 8 days...came to $160 including taxes which was the same as parking at the airport for that long...plus we did have to get up early :)

 

Day 1: Arrival

 

First class plane ride....so worth it! We got a checked luggage allowance of 2-70lbs bags per person which was more than enough so we didn't need to pay extra for baggage to get our wedding stuff there. Plus we got to load the plane first and got see all our excited guest board the plane. The food was actually really good and tons of snacks and drinks. They made an announcement about our seats " Couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary"...lol...they must of gotten it mixed up with another flight.

 

The Punta Cana Airport was crazy...people getting off the back of the plane got a little separated from the group and ended up in the wrong line but we got them to the right place eventually. Thankfully almost everyone used our luggage tags and I start hauling off our luggage and making a pile to make it faster once they all got though customs. My pile also kept the luggage guys off our luggage. We got directed though to a special bus just for us had a big sign that said "Sherry & Marks Wedding"...lol...they used the wrong name for me all week :) but I didn't care.

 

Check in was a breeze...but this is also where some of the bumps started...lol.  They had a special table set up for our group...this time the sign said the Henddderson wedding...spelled my name wrong and left off the hubby's name completely...oh well...but that did turn into the running joke of the week...it was actually pretty funny. Make sure if you have first time all-Inclusive travellers with you that you mention how important it is to print all your travel Itineraries and hotel vouchers...they don't accept things on mobile phones there. We had two people who didn't think to print it but we got that straightened out. This is also where the FI's mom lost her mind..just before check in she realised she left her dress for the wedding at home. This a a dress that the Fi's Sister who passed away had helped her pick out. Between all the crying we did manage to get her checked in.

 

They gave us a upgraded room in the newest building....very nice...the only downside was it was at the opposite side of the resort from everyone else. looking back on it now I think I would of preferred to be close to everyone rather than get an upgrade...we wasted a lot of time getting back and forth from out room (10min walk, 1 way, from everyone else).  Me and one of the other girls assembled the wedding welcome bags...everyone loved them...I noticed people using the bags all week, as well as the sunglasses and first aid kits.

 

Day 2 Bachelorette Party

 

coming next...

Hey! Welcome back! I didn't get the chance to wish you "happy wedding day" so even though it's done I'll say it now - happy wedding day! I hope it was everything you hoped for and more!! Can't believe you're back already!! Wow. Where did the time go? And you've already started your review!! Geez....... I'm so far behind I'll never get caught up. I'm hoping to feel better by Friday to make it for the meet so I'll get the chance to hear all about it hopefully!! Can't wait to see photos!! We still don't have ours yet but I'm really hoping soon!!

    • 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
