hello brides! i’m getting married on May 2nd too, but just a little far away: in Mexico (Tabasco, like the sauce haha :D)! My Fiance and I are currently living in another city- Yucatan, also in Mexico obviously-but we’re are not going toget married here because it’s my family tradition to get married in the city the bride grows up, so that’s why we’re planning a Destination wedding (kind of)!
we will have a very short engagement: from november 15 to may 2nd it’s only 5 and a half months! but we love each other and we can’t wait longer… :; besides, my parents offered to pay the most part of the wedding as a gift to me, so we’re going to have a sparkly, green and white wedding, quite simple but full of love, with only 150 guests (yeah, i know for you it’s like a loooot of people, but we’re mexican, and like miss hydrangea once say: the more, the merrier!…and cutting the guest list have been one of the hardest decisions we’ve made!
the planning and making of our wedding has been crazy, first of all, cause i will love to have a garden wedding but here it’s like 100ºF !!!!! my guest will melt if we had our wedding outdoors! so, it has to be in the afternoon in a reception hall with air conditioner!!!
also, because of our budget and ’cause we don’t wanna splurge our parent’s money, i’m trying to be a DIY bride: invitations, centerpieces, church decoration, and many more! thankfully my Fiance helps me a lot and also keeps me sane!
i will love hearing from you and if you find a website with great ideas about green and white weddings, please link them to me! 🙂 i will try to tell you about our traditions, if you like, but like you must know by now, my english it’s not that good…
congratulations to all of you!
