  1. I totally feel for you. It's hard to be excited about wedding planning if people are making you feel guilty. Although I'm not in the same situation as you, I too have had DW doubts. My closest friend who first said she would be coming now tells me that she can't afford it. I thought about helping to pay for her expenses in order for her to come, but at the same time I did give her almost 2 YEARS notice and I feel like if she really wanted to be there, she would have saved up. On the other hand, I have other friends (who aren't as close) in worse financial circumstances putting money away each month in order to attend the wedding. It's so weird how people who you think are definitely going to come, don't show up and people you never thought would ever come, do show up...


  2. I'm glad you were able to figure everything out! Wedding planning can be so stressful sometimes, so it's nice that now you will have others to rely on! :) Congrats on booking your wedding location! I'm sure lots of hotel F brides on this forum will be here to help you out :)


  3. Thanks for the welcome! :)

     

    Here's a question for you August girls.. I was talking to one of my vendors and he was very surprised that I was having my wedding reception outside. He said that August Mexico weather would be 100F even at night and it would be really uncomfortable for my guests.. I've seen a lot of brides on this forum get married in August but I don't want my guests to be dying from the heat.. What are you girls doing for your reception?


  4. Thought I'd give everyone a little update: It's been about 3 weeks now and I haven't heard anything from Lazy gourmet, which is disapointing but like gabride said, they seem too busy for my business and that's not something you want for your wedding anyway!


  5. hey fellow Aug 09 brides!

     

    This is what I've done so far:

     

    1) Booked ceremony and reception location

    2) Sent out STDs

    3) Booked photographer

    4) Booked hair/makeup

    5) Went dress shopping today! Super exciting! :)

    6) In the process of booking my florist

    7) In the process of booking my furniture/stereo equipment rentals

  7. I contacted Lazy gourmet around one and a half weeks ago (via email) about possibly renting some stuff from them, but I haven't heard a word from them. Is this normal for them, or have I been forgotten about? Other people I've contacted have at least let me know that they've received my email... Any info about this would be greatly appreciated!

    Does anyone know if there is some sort of market or something near Dreams where we could find flowers? I am thinking of making the bouquets myself. Just really simple ones since I am not very crafty! haha.
    The hotels which I told my guests about were El Presidente Intercontinental, Best Western Posada Real, and Crown Plaza. All of them are all inclusive, but their rates are much better... I'm not too sure how far away these hotels are from Dreams, but i believe they shouldn't be more than a 10-20 min drive (I'm probably going to stay at one of these hotels for my site visit in December, so i'll be able to give you a better idea of the distance after that)..

    As for flowers, i've been asking florists what their rates are for loose, unarranged flowers. I'm gonna get my mom and aunt to put together the bridesmaid bouquets.. I'm sure it's not too hard to do, there must be some demo about it on youtube or something :)

We are willing to help some of our friends out with rooms if they really can't afford them, but not if they are going to be calling me and yelling at me about the price of the trip!

    Has anyone else had this problem?? What did you do/say?? I was not happy when my maid of honor called and complained...but she has always been like that anyway I guess.

    I had a few people complain about the price too. I gave my guests the option to stay at a cheaper hotel than Dreams, as a few hundred dollars can make a huge different to some guests. Not sure if that is an option for you?

    BTW, can my date be added to the list please? It's August 8th, 2009 :)
