Recommended Posts

I am sure there are other threads on this but I am meeting with my DJ on tuesday and have to tell him kinda what I want... and I have NO idea! I was jus trying to get an idea of what you girls have done or think is best. I know I am supposed to do what I want and on and on haha. But I wanted to see what you all think

-Anyone do cutting the cake again?

-Or how about the first dance?

-Throwing the garter

-Catching the bouquet

Am I missing anything?

Ours was really informal. We had a 3rd ceremony at a chapel and the AHR followed. There was just music, food, and drinks. No special events....hopefully someone else here can help!

I got married Nov 1 in Cancun and my AHR was this past weekend Dec 1st. We had a traditional reception (dj, catering, cake etc.) We did the bride/groom intro, a slideshow of baby and wedding pics. We did cake cutting. No bouquet (because why buy flowers again), or garter toss. We did do traditional first dances. I pretty much treated mine like a wedding reception with no wedding. It turned out great- out AHR was not beachy but we incorporated small things like our last song being kenny Chesney - No shirt no shoes no problems and beer in mexico. Good luck!

I am doing the same thing, kinda. Our AHR will be 2 months after our wedding and we are treating it as a regular reception. We will do the cake cutting, first dance, etc. We will not be doing the bouquet toss or garter toss, just cuz as a personal thing, I don't care for them. Matt does, so we may try to figure out a way to do it w/o making going the traditional route. I dont have any details figured out yet, but I know we will treat it as a regular reception.

We are doing the entire thing, ceremony and all, at our AHR. The biggest reason for this is most people do not know that it is not the Real wedding, but there are SO many of them that wouldn't be able to go to our DW for financial and other reasons that we thought we would just have a Fake one and go all out.

Thanks for all your ideas, you have been really helpful. I am meeting with the DJ in a couple hours so I am hoping that he will have an idea also.

    • 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.
