  1. Hey Ladies, Sorry I haven't had time to post lately but...well, I've been swamped. And it's 11:31pm and my flight to Mexico leaves tomorrow at 9 am....ahhhhh. But it's happening. Finleys, see you in a week or so! Talk to the rest of you when I get back! - Emmers

We'll be following up to see if they can do the same. I agree that it would be a tad awkward trying to orchestrate it all on your own, especially when we don't exactly know what's going on.
  3. Wow, congrats and welcome! You'll have to tell us all about it - we are planning on honeymooning in Thailand, so we will take all the recommendations you have! Happy planning!
  4. Love it all! Great job. Since I never got around to using luggage tags with the StDs, I think I'll go ahead and include them in the OOT bags. Again, great job!
  5. Oh, one more thing - are any of you having a rehearsal dinner? We were originally going back and forth about it b/c as far as we were concerned, the Italian Restaurant was the only one you could rent out and we were already doing that for the reception. Well, turns out that they can organize a large group for dinner at another restaurant. It was in the document they sent us last week. Basically we'll tell them all the folks that will be present and if we do it at an a la cart restaurant, they would just reduce that meal from the guests' allotted a la cart options. Oh, and it looks like the ser
  6. Hi Ladies! Just popping in here after being MIA for a little while. Seems as though we're all in that mode. I thought we were pretty good at staying on top of things throughout the past couple months, but there are just a lot of loose ends that can't be tied up until the date approaches. We just received an email from Karla (wc) about a lot of last minute decisions. Until the email, we were always told that we'd make these decisions when we arrived down there, but now they want an immediate turnaround with all sorts of details - like flavor of cake, type of flowers, decorations, rehearsa
  7. We are getting married at the Iberostar Paraiso Beach and were thinking of buying local crafts at Playa del Carmen to use as centerpieces. Does anyone know what the costs of these range? According to the internet, the two local specialties are handblown glass and red clay (earthenware) pottery. Any knowledge of the markets is appreciated!
  8. We just want to play our ipod! Does anyone know the cheapest way to do this? I've read that Iberostar requires you to get a DJ in order to have a sound system, but we do not need a good DJ (or really, any DJ at all), since we just want to let the playlist do the work.
  9. Thanks for the heads up! We'll be up in NYC in a few weeks for my FI's side's shower, so this is definitely something worth checking out if we don't do it over the phone.

I went back and checked out your photos and it looked like that size, but thanks for confirming. It definitely helps me plan what I can fit in them! Thanks again for posting. Your OOT bags are definitely the model I'm using for mine. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?

Check out my photographers site at Beautiful and Affordable Photography I loved the shoot, it was so much fun and I can't wait to give this to FI on our wedding day as my gift =) Ha! Thanks! I think we're at 62 booked right now, and invitations just went out. We think 62 will be our number, but we may get

The actual OOT bags I bought at Ten Thousand Villages Do you remember what size of jute bags you bought? They have so many options and I don't know how large to buy. Thanks! Again, they look AMAZIN
  13. Thanks so much for posting the formats! They look amazing!
  14. Thank you soooo much for sharing. Compared to everyone else I've seen listed on this forum, she is at least half the price!
  15. Hi! We chose Iberostar but they are both nice resorts. What took RIU out of the running for us was that they only allow you to stay 3 nights or more. For a lot of our guests, we knew that they would not be able to take alot of vacation and we wanted to give them as many options as possible. Hope that helps!

I found the recipe in a search engine but ill put it on here for anyone who might want to do this too. Mexican wedding cookies Servings: 8 What you need: 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup white sugar
  17. Finleys, Stop booking people to your wedding!! We are trying to catch up but every time we get close, you book more! 2 months till Mexicana Air! Can't wait to see you in Mexico!!!

I was originally going down the blue & a bright color (not sure which) route and then I started checking out peacock feather looks and really liked the color combo of blue/green

So maybe 10 days in Thailand or Vietnam and 3 days in Cambodia? Trust me, 3 days in Siem Reap will be plenty. There isn't much to see or do there other than the temples, and it's exhausting climbing around the temples all day. And as Magal

Amols' Specialty - Catalog - Traditional Large Maracas 8" Wow! That's a steal! I have been going back and forth about getting maracas, but for that price, it's hard to say no. Thanks for sharing!
  21. Thanks for all the recommendations! Your finished products looked great!
  22. Hey, any thoughts about what the groomsmen (all 3 of em!) should wear? We ended up getting the FI the following jacket and matching pants: John W. Nordstrom® Two Button Linen Sportcoat - - Nordstrom It was a little more than we originally planned on spending (though it came with free alterations) but it's something he'll get more use out of - he won't be wearing this for the TTD! We're leaning towards going with ivory cubavera shirts and natural linen pants for the groomsmen. The FI had suggested white shirts, but my dress isn't diamond white (he hasn't seen it), so I

We're leaning towards going with ivory cubavera shirts and natural linen pants for the groomsmen.

  24. We got my fiance's ring on Amazon for $35. We went shopping and he just liked the simple domed tungsten the best. Saw it online at Amazon and...ta da. Good too, because we only went over our budget for both of our rings by....umm...$35. Oops. Guess who was responsible for breaking the budget......
