New and very thanksful

Recommended Posts

HI! My name is April. I am from Arkansas and I have been engaged since May 07. We were planning a traditional outdoor wedding here in central arkansas but then we looked at honeymoon places and the thought of a destination wedding was one of the best ideas ever. The wedding was orginally going to be set for Oct 4th 08 but that will have to change due to restriction on things. But, will still be the first full week in october. Since, we could have a much better honeymooon this way. Im looking into the Palace Resorts and leaning the most toward Aventura Spa Palace.

 

It looks awesome. But, I was wondering if anyone has had there wedding there without any guests then came back home and had a nice reception. I may have a few as in 2-3 guest that might be able to come with us but mainly just us. I have read some really good posts about Moon palace but the reveiws on aventura are just a little better.

 

Any input/advice anyone has would be wonderful.

Well I think that's a good idea but I just want to warn you, you may be hurting peoples feelings. Would you let them know about getting married at Moon palace before? I know we had a problem with getting legally married before our DW. SOme family members were hurt. But that's my personal experience haha hopefully your family will be a little more understanding.

 

Welcome to the forum though and happy planning. Honeymoon planning is fun too!

    • 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
