When you decide to plan a wedding it should be to celebrate your love, but some people hope to make it an "investment"—meaning they spend money putting together this special event hoping to make the money back (if not turn a profit).
Unfortunately, from my experience this is not the case. Nowadays, with so many different types of weddings, proper gift giving etiquette has been skewed. I only found out about the whole “etiquette” portion of a wedding planning once I began planning my own. Honestly, I’m still confused about it, especially in the gift giving department.

Hector and I have been living together for about 3 years. Throughout this time we’ve gone through our share of fights, celebrations, and compromising—we’ve shared our thoughts, our dreams, and our life experiences, and have been committed to one another every step of the way.

I’m back from Aruba and it was the perfect getaway, so much so that we extended our stay for a few more days defeating the purpose of a “mini-moon” (a short honeymoon vacation). It was just too good to leave, we relaxed at the beach, celebrated, did snuba (a combo of snorkel and scuba), shared romantic dinners, and even found a decent salsa club to get our dance on.

I got married last weekend and I couldn’t be happier… I’m positively glowing! A few days before the wedding, it felt as if I had saved up all the stress that most brides experience through the wedding planning process for the last few days. There were so many last minute things I needed to do and small details like menus and ceremony programs to handle.

Tonight on the season finale of MTV Tr3s’ reality series, Quiero Mi Boda, we meet 44-year-old Nancy and 54-year-old Bill. When they met, both experienced an instant connection because of their mutual love for bodybuilding. Cuban American Nancy and Italian American Bill had something else in common – both have two children from previous marriages. Once they began dating, having their children get along with one another wasn’t difficult at all, but it was another story when it came to planning their wedding.

Tonight on MTV Tr3s’ reality series, Quiero Mi Boda, we meet 22-year-old Kelsey and 31-year-old Mike. The Missourian couple ran into some conflict with each other over the religious aspect of their wedding ceremony. For Kelsey, whose mother is Cuban, having a Catholic ceremony was an important tradition in her family. For Mike, who is German-American and grew up in a denominational church, it wasn’t. In addition, the couple also wanted a warmer climate for their wedding – somewhere far from the cold of Missouri.

Tonight on MTV Tr3s’ reality series, Quiero Mi Boda, we meet 25-year-old Lucy and 26-year-old Jorge. The Californian couple met as teenagers and dated for a decade before they tied the knot. For a while, the young couple was chaperoned by Lucy’s nephews and nieces during dates. For Lucy, who was born in Mexico, the date chaperoning was just an expectation placed by her parents, but for Jorge, who is Mexican-American, it took some getting used to.

After being rescheduled three times, my bridal shower finally happened and it was totally a success!! I couldn’t have asked for a better time spent with the women I love. The day was filled with surprises, games, heartfelt wishes, a little crying, and of course unlimited mimosas. Here are some photos to recap the lovely brunch bridal shower. I hope you can feel the love from the photos like I did that day.

Tonight on MTV Tr3s’ reality series, Quiero Mi Boda, we meet 28-year-old Michael and 29-year-old Kristopher. The couple met on a study abroad trip but did not officially date until a year and a half later. Since then, several more years passed before this couple decided to take the plunge. The wedding planning proved extremely challenging because Kristopher was in Mexico at the time and Michael was in Texas. Michael found herself planning the wedding mostly alone.
