  1. Hey ladies! It's been pretty quiet around here lately. Anyone still around?
  2. I already have my OOT bags, and have bought quite a few things already to go in them. I did my best estimate on the number of guests base on the amount of interested that was expressed to us. So far, it looks like we will be very close to that number. I have decided to make my welcome packet into a booklet and I started working on that also. Ours will have a lot of the same things that you have, and we will also are doing intoduction pages with everyone's name and picture. I mentioned to FI yesterday that he needed to help finalize his attire. He's having issues with his best man trying to back out of the wedding so he's a little angry about that. Especially, when he doesn't have anyone else that he would want to do it. Hopefully that will get resolved soon, though. We are also bringing our own centerpieces, and just recently decided what we are going to do for that. So things are coming along nicely...

So far everything is far less than we thought so we have decided to have a videographer. Looking through Vimeo wedding videos to get an idea of the style that works for our wedding style. Are there any other sites I should look at for videos? We are going to send gift boxes to all attendees before the trip instead of welcome packages. We will include luggage tags, travel items such as electricity converters, TSA luggage locks, money belts and inflatable neck pillows for the airplane. In the gift box will be a printed note saying how excited we are to have them at our wedding. We didn't send invites, as this was a family vacation that I planned before the engagement and decision to have the wedding there. I would like to have favors but can't think of something that would be useful and something inspired by our italian venue. Does anyone have a suggestion? I don't know any specific sites for videos...Sorry :-( As far as your favors, We are doing a small picture frame with a beach/tropical theme since we are going to the caribbean. Perhaps you can find something similar with an italian theme or theme related to the specific area that you will be going in Italy? HTH.
  3. How's everyone's wedding planning going? I've been pretty much at a stand-still for a while, but I'm starting to kick into gear here. I would love to hear what you ladies are working on.
  4. Our time is fastly approaching ladies!! I getting more and more excited each day . I have my dress, just need to get my groom on the ball with his attire. We have all of our supplies for our OOT bags and now just have to get our final details together. Guests are booking their trips and we are getting RSVPs in. Things are moving along nicely!
  5. I used Wright Travel Agency (The BDW agents) and was able to book over a year in advance for Dreams Punta Cana. I would suggest giving them a try.
  6. To ensure everyone knows how this works please go to the last post of this thread, select "quote" on the last entry Type in you & your OH name, forum name, wedding date & location in chronological order. Brides (& grooms) can see who is getting married on dates close to them . It is handy too as some wedding parties have shared the cost of some vendors (photographers in particular) FEBRUARY 2013 Tamara & Chris (tkuzma) February 7 - Azul Sensatori, Riviera Maya Miranda & Colin (mlite83) February 9 - Now Jade, Riviera Cancun Carolyn & Matthew (mufin1785) February 9 - Melia Caribe Tropical, Punta Cana, DR Fabi & Brian (FabiLara) February 12 - Le Kliff, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Kiel & Kayla (kkeeve01) February 26 - Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, Playa del carmen MARCH 2013 Kaela & Joel (mrsnova) March 1 - Barcelo Maya Palace, Riviera Maya Kary and Phil (karyc) March 2 - Azul Beach Hotel, Riviera Maya Kristen & Kyle (kristencanada) March 13th - Secrets Wild Orchid, Montego Bay, Jamaica Nickie and Lee (nickieb) March 15 - Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Crystal & Shawn (crystalandshawn) March 20 - Gran Bahia Principe, Akumal Nikki & Jeff (NIKKI2013) March 22 - Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe, Riviera Maya MayanBride2013 – March 23 @ Gran Bahia Principe Coba APRIL 2013 Erica & Brian (airica26) April 10 - Moon Palace, Cancun, Mexico Promise & Charlie (promise12) April 10 - Gran Bahia Principe Akumal, Mexico Adrienne & Mark (adriennej) April 18 - Gran Bahia Principe Tulum, Mexico Faith & Michael (LTLFAITHY) April 27 - Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun MAY 2013 Doreen & Christian (chrisdior) May 3 - Barcelo Maya Palace, Riviera Maya, Mexico Berg5080 May 9 - Gran Bahia Principe Akumal, Mayan Riveria Kristie & Randy (KristieT) May 15 - Beach Palace, Cancun, Mexico Andrea & Aaron (AndreaandAaron) May 16 - Gran Bahia Principe Akumal, Mayan Riveria Tova & Justin (ChocoTaco7568) May 18 - Now Jade Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa Tamara & Edgard (trivera5521) May 18 - Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, Punta Cana DR Jennifer & Holger (mspokran) May 19 - The Royal, Playa Del Carmen Dayna & Ray (RNtobe) May 22 - Riu Palace, Cabo San Lucas Tammyd23 May 25 - Gran Bahia Principe Akumal, Mayan Riveria Krista & Pat (cinnagirl) May 28 - Dreams Palm Beach, Punta Cana, DR JUNE 2013 DannielleHague ?

  7. We are getting married at Dreams Punta Cana on Oct 5!
  8. I'm going dress shopping on Feb 23! I actually have 2 appointments that day...one at David's Bridal, the other at Demetrios. I'm pretty excited. I will have my mother and my bridal party (3 of them) there. I think my mother is bringing my grandmother along too. I am a little apprehensive about having so many opinions at the appointment, but I've watched enough Say Yes To The Dress to know that I just need to stay focused on what I like more than anyone else.
  9. I haven't exactly decided on the final RSVP date to put on the invite. I will likely be end of June to beat the July deadline to book.
  10. I am planning 1 per couple, but have a few extras because there should be a few single people as well. As for the invites, I plan to send ours out mid April.so it's about 5 1/2 mos out from the wedding date, but only 3 months out from the deadline to book in the group booking.
  11. I actually have no idea how many guests are coming..lol. Based on the people that have said they are coming i'm thinking between 25-30. So I'm planning for 30, but no one is really counted until they are paid in full :-).
  12. Hi ladies! We are getting married October 5 at Dreams Resort in Punta Cana, DR. I have a few things done, as I have my OOT bags and most of the contents. I am going dress shopping next month, so we'll see how that goes. Look forward to planning with all of you brides!
