Why did we decide Mexico? Well, first was cost and we also wanted an all inclusive. My Mother is a travel agent and had traveled to many places and just recently did a couple day tour in Cancun-Riviera Maya to several resorts. This is how we chose Secrets Resorts for last summer's vacation.
An adult only resort, was also top on the list. Personally, I have been to several resorts and cruises...and after going to my first adult only resort, I'm not sure if I could ever go back! Well, maybe if we ever have kids :) It was very quiet and relaxing! Also, with these resorts there is a no wristband policy!
We also decided to go one month after the wedding for our honeymoon...since we are having an East Coast Wedding :) it is just a little too much for us! Plus, we saved about $700 dollars going 1 month later...We will be going to a hotel near our venue for two nights to have a mini-moon :) So we can sorta have that "newlywed" feeling! Then back to Los Angeles!!

Happiness in a marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, no in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation in reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner,
it is being the right partner.

For the card selection, I went with a design that was geared towards the holidays. I had printed, "Happy Holidays From the West Coast." They turned out great! The pictures are not the greatest..sorry!
My beautiful bridesmaid Danelle, knows how much I loved my stationary from Penny People Designs, she bought me a PPD gift certificate for my birthday! I just got those in the mail today!!! They are adorable and perfect personal stationary!
I definitely recommend Penny People Designs! They were very personal to work with and will go the extra mile to get exactly what you want! I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day!

Hand Fasting Ceremony
Then specific questions are asked to the couple and they reply accordingly...after a couple questions a cord is draped across their hands. After the 6th cord is draped and a knot is formed. The binding is made! It is definitely symbolic! For more information and details about the ceremony go HERE. Mrs. Hummingbird from Weddingbee gives a great explanation and more detail of the ceremony.
Are you doing anything special...different in your ceremony?
