  • Wedding: July 2010

I did most of my planning for my IN wedding from Los Angeles and the very end of it from Dallas.  I took off the three work days between X-mas and New Years last year and used those days back home in IN to have all wedding meetings and appointments I could.  Outside of that, my mom was a HUGE help with everything and I had to trust and rely on her for a lot.

And it all come together perfectly!

  • Wedding: April 2011

I live in Canada and am getting married in Mexico this April. 4797 kms or 2980 miles for those of you in the U.S.!!

Our resort assigned me a coordinator and she has been really helpful. I haven’t run into too many obstacles as of yet. The only problem we had was not wanting to do a blood test in Mexico (a marriage requirement there) and having our documents translated from Spanish to English. Because of those two points we have opted to do our legal ceremony in Canada with a Justice of the Peace before we head down for our actual wedding in Mexico. This has actually saved us a lot of headache and a good chunk of cash too!

Other than that everything has been smooth. Our resort offers an online catalogue with hundreds of selections for cakes, decorations, menu, flower arrangements etc. As long as you are willing to put in a little extra work you can accomplish anything and find anything. A good tip I was given was to visit the Trip Advisor website to find out info about weddings in the city you are travelling too and they also have some vendors with reviews listed.

Good luck planning 🙂
