We just sent our invites out with a RSVP date of February 1st. I think the invite was more of a technicality (and i wanted to make something pretty!). I think we pretty much have the number of guests already booked. 33 booked after the STD went out. I imagine we will have some stragglers though. What we did which has helped is do our RSVPs through our wedding website. People seem to find that easier. I was frustrated giving such a late RSVP date, but I think some people find it hard to commit to something like this so far in advance, but it is frustrating for sure!

Do any of you ladies already have people booked as well, or is the RSVP the first attempt?

I've only got us book, my parents and a friend from Ireland, out of 50 invites sent out.

I was thinking tho how when the FI and I plan to go on vacation we don't book any earlier then 3 weeks before we actually want to leave. I am sure a lot of people are the same way. So when I sent my letter extending the rsvp date, I made it clear I need to know if they were coming or not. They did not need to book anything until March if that is what pleases them. So we will seeee..

WHat makes me made is the the FI friend was invited (in July) and told us he didn't know because they had a plan to go to Hawiwi in March, as they had this planning before we decided to do DW. But then in Oct, he goes a books a 'family' vacation to Punta Cana (they left Sunday) and told us he still doesn't know.

I am sorry but this isn't a friend,and I am a tad bit upset the the FI still consider him as a friend!!!

My minds in blowen up into little pieces.

Hi girlies!!!! I moved this weekend and just got my internet today! Thank goddd!!!! I missed you!!! You guys have been busy on here!!! I had lots of catching up to do!!

 

Dawnbuckly, Congrats on gettting the dress!!! Its a huge relief once you get it eh?

 

Danielle, I'm sorry about your RSVPs, I decided not to go that route, we sent out a mass email to let everybody know our intensions on a destination wedding, the people who wanted to go emailed us back and we have them the info, we are sending out formal invites to the reception, which are going out in January, so I'm almost positive that I won't get any of those replys back!! lol

 

Tracy, I am booked with Michael Weiler for my pictues, that was a long time ago that you asked me that, but its the first time I've been on since you wrote that!! lol...And sorry to hear about your photog in Montreal sad.gif

 

ohhh Im so happy to be back!!! eekkk!!! hahahaha

We just moved into an apartment in the city, were going to buy next xmas, I think, once were out of this lease, we wanted to wait til after the wedding to buy. I hate apartment living but, our place is really nice, so its not to bad.

Yes, I got my dress back in the summer, It ended up fitting me like a glove in the store so they let me but it right off the rack!! I didn't have to wait months for it to come in!! Woot!! lol I do have to get the hem brought up a little and the boobs taken in a bit sad.gif lol. But the waist fits awesome and it makes me look at little taller than I actually am, and I take any kinda height I can get!! lol

And yes, Michael Weiler is local in Punta Cana. His pictures look beautiful on his website. I'm getting super excited!! After Christmas time is just going to fly! and soon enough we'll all be having drinks together!! woo hooo!!!

Nice!!! I am sure the apartment is lovely. We also live in a apartment, but it's like a condo looking thing. Would love a house maybe next summer when our lease is up as well. I am happy enough just cleaning an apartment for now lol, it's enough work.

Ohhhh, you have your dress, post a pic!!! would love to see it!!!! my dress I had to order it so I did get it in my size, but I did have to hem it and add bras. Cost enough too just to do that. Plus I have the TTD dress (I bought off the rack, size 12 def had to bring that it lol but re changed the padding in them to something like a bikini bra)

Oh nice, I am sure the photographer is amazing!!!
I am just as excited... with xmas just around the corner and realizing just how fast it is coming, the wedding is just coming so darn fast.
Sooo excited to have our drink together lol!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
