Yipee!!! We just booked our ceremony!

Recommended Posts

(Yikes!!! I had written a nice long message this morning and something went wrong as I was submitting it, so only the title came through! So sorry! Let me recreate it now... :)


Good morning ladies!!!


Yipee!!! After about 2 months of researching and trying to decide on location (Hawaii, Cabo, or the Riviera Maya), hotel, WC, and the type of ceremony to have, we FINALLY confirmed a Catholic ceremony on May 30, 2008 at the Nuestra Senora del Carmen seaside chapel in Playa del Carmen!!!!!! I am SO excited!! I couldnâ€t even sleep last night, even though I am fighting a cold bug and needed to rest! It just feels so darn good that we will be having the type of wedding weâ€ve always wanted - something unique, special and memorable - even in light of the weirdness weâ€ve gotten from some people (future MIL and some others)! So as far as our accommodations we are staying at the Hotel La Tortuga, a small non-mega resort hotel a few blocks from the beach that is so CUTE, extremely reasonable (how can you beat $80 bucks a night for a standard room?!?!) and has consistently received great reviews on Tripadvisor. I have to say that Anna, my contact at the hotel, has been extremely helpful, informative and super nice as she answered my endless questions about the hotel and planning a wedding. Caribbean Blue Weddings will actually be my WCs (the hotel contracts with them), but before sending them our deposit yesterday Anna was my source of info and go-between. Once I submitted my deposit, Anna handed me off to Irene of CBW, who immediately contacted me to introduce herself and follow up with all the details. She also seems very nice and thorough! I am hopeful that my positive experiences with Anna and Irene so far will continue towards a great wedding!


We havenâ€t yet confirmed where to have our simple reception dinner for our 6 guests, but weâ€re not too concerned about that right now since Irene will help us and all we want is a nice meal, have a traditional mexican trio serenading us while we eat, and a yummy cake! Since our parents/aunts/uncle are up there in age, itâ€s not like weâ€ll be boogying the night away (haha), so we didnâ€t have the need to hire a dance band or a dj. We may head on to another locale in Playa to dance after if we want, or my future hubby and I may just want to start our wedding night early! (hee hee). Weâ€ll be having a very informal AHR a few months after we get back.


I am so grateful for this forum and all you lovely ladies for all the info and resources that have helped me come to this decision!!! I truly appreciate it! For those brides who are still in the midst of trying to decide, feel free to pm me if you want more details on my experiences so far.

A million thanks, and have a great day!

Thanks gals! I will most certainly share my pics with you! We're still waiting to confirm photographer (either Claudia Rodriguez's team or Jill Higgins) so that's my next "to do"!


Now that I've decided on my locale and date, how do I change that on my little bdw profile??


Have a great evening!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
