  1. We just got back a week ago from our wedding at the Riu. The wedding turned out great, our wedding coordinator was Fabi. I was a little nervous that something would not turn out but they really did a great job. We did not have any issues at all when it came to our wedding day. The renova spa did an awesome job on my hair and makeup! I would highly recommend using them, I was very impressesed and so were my 3 bridesmaids. We also used Adventure Photography and I am soooo glad we did! They too did an awesome job, we decided to buy all of the photos that they took. Agni was there the whole day from the Spa to the reception taking pictures of us and our guests. We also did a TTD session which was fun! Overall everything really was perfect when it came to the wedding. The only downside was during our stay at the Riu my mom had her iPad stolen out of her room which put a damper on her vacation so just remember to lock your stuff whenever you leave the room. And dont leave extra room keys laying around in your room as someone took their extra key out of there room then entered the room when they were out to dinner.
  2. Thank you so much for that information sedwards00. We will be leaving in just about two weeks for our wedding. I am looking forward to being able to talk to Erica and put everything together. I have 24 guests coming with us. I would really like to have a private reception with a DJ but I know we don't have enough people and I am not sure if its even worth it with a smaller group. What is the minimum number of people for a private reception? (And how much does it cost per person for a private reception?.) Glad everything went well for your wedding! I can't wait to just be relaxing on the beach!
  3. I think we may do a puzzle that has 30 pieces and will be a picture of our engagement picture. Each person will then write something on the back of the puzzle piece. Thought that would be a nice idea and could even be something I put in a frame to hang up I ran across this saying and thought it would fit perfectly.
  4. I feel like i need to start packing since there are so many things I feel like I need to take and don't want to forget anything! I am sure the Fiancé will make me take some items out after he sees everything that I packed. I also thought packing ring cleaner would be a great idea(not sure if that was already mentioned)
  5. Love the cut out. I saw that at party city also and its something that I need for my AHR!
  6. Hello! Hope everyone's planning is going well. For the cocktail hour would you recommend la habana or the lyrico bar? I looked back at past posts but didn't find any information on them. I have no idea what the difference is. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! I have 24 guests that will be attending.
  7. You did a great job planning! Everything is going to turn out beautiful! I can't wait to hear about everything when you get back.
  8. I went onto vista print to attempt to make welcome cards, room key inserts, and gift tags but cannot seem to figure the site out. It looks like I need to order 100ish postcards or business cards for each order. How did you order your welcome cards and other items? Did you just order 100 some pieces of everything? Your help would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Do any of you have any type of price list you could send me? It's hard to budget when I am not sure what the prices are. I still have some time since mine is not until June but it makes planning easier if I know the costs beforehand. Hope all of the planning is going well for you girls!
  10. We have handed out invites awhile back and so far have 23 guests booked. I have already bought my dress along with my fiances outfit. The bridesmaids have their dresses bought and they just came in last week! I am thinking we will between 25-30 when all is said and done. Thankfully I have a pretty good idea of how many people are coming so I was able to buy the majority of items for welcome bags already. I have also booked the photographer at the resort. I have also already bought the chair ties since the resorts are so much more! Our ceremony is at 5pm and I would like to have a cocktail after and before the reception. I kept emailing the wedding coordinator questions but I know that typically I won't plan the majority of those items 3-4 months in advance which makes it difficult because I want everything reserved right now so I can have my schedule for the day all planned out. Everything is adding up so fast and I have a feeling when I get there and go through things with the coordinator the cost will just keep rising.
  11. I figured for us it would be between $8,000 - $12,000 which would include everything except the wedding dress. We are at approx 23 guests right now and still have 5 months until the wedding. Waiting on a final guest count is very exhausting since it can change the budget if more decide to join us.
  12. I love this! My colors are the same so I may have to use this idea, so cute!
