Congrats! I'm a Monday bride, too- Monday, May 30, 2011- but I figure it still close to the weekend, for guests who don't want to take a lot of time off of work. Plus our date is on a holiday weekend- which creates another dilemma below.

 

What to do next i.e. Save the Dates or Invites. We sent out an email with the dates, info on the resort, how to book, etc.  My mom says skip the Save the Dates and get started on the formal invites, but I feel like this may be too early to send out the invites with a reply card (because they will get lost, people will procrastinate, etc).  I was thinking maybe right after Christmas- so then maybe I should send out paper save the dates now.  What to do???

I was a Monday bride (5/24/10) and it was AWESOME!!! Perfect for those who, like you said, just want to take a long weekend. Most family arrived on Thursday and left on Tuesday, some came Saturday...it really made it better for budgets! We could get a group rate though since not everyone was coming/going at the same time. I didn't care though. We were staying 9 days so we got the complimentary package for free and that was all I needed!

 

We didn't send out STDs since we got engaged in January and our wedding was May. Our close family knew about it, but I made sure to send out our invites by the first week of March. I knew pretty much who was coming, only 2 surprises, which were welcome :)  We ended up with 19 people, including us, so it couldn't have worked out more perfectly!

 

Don't be sad about a Monday! It's a great day!!!! Congrats!!!!!!!!

I am getting married on May 20th, so maybe we will see you there.  I sent save the dates out last week and I am going to send formal invites by the 1st of the year.  I thought now would be too early too for formal invites.  Although, I did have some friends who wanted to book early who I didnt even think would be coming, so I guess the earlier they get the info the better.

 

Good luck!

Thanks, ladies, I'm getting so excited. I'm probably way premature, but I'm hoping to send my save-the-dates out by mid-October, and the formal invited by mid-January, with an RSVP date of May 1st. I'm hoping to give people plenty of time to save if they can. For past Dreams brides, if anyone used Michael Weiler/Caribbean Emotions-- did he also come with a videographer, or is he only a photographer? Thanks :)

Thanks, ladies. I don't mind being a Monday bride at all. Thanks for the tips re: invites & STDs.  I actually worked on my website and STD design today.  I figure as a courtesy I should show them to my FH before I push the submit button to place my order, but I am so eager to have something done- that I don't really want to wait (trying very hard to be good, though.)

Hi Shelly, We arrive on the 25th, so you will be a Mrs. by the time I arrive.  I'll send you a PM. This is so exciting.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
