Hi Sister/Brides,

 

msvasq u gave me a heart attack lol. I could do without the florist (I guess) but HDC photos I wouldnâ€t give up without a fight….. Stopping outside vendors is something Iâ€m sure they would like 2 do. It would be so mush more money for them, with those prices they charge. I think $150.00pp is a lot 2 pay just 2 have a vendor come on property. I better add that into my budget now while Iâ€m thinking about it.  

 

Tcruze those pom poms are really pretty they are going 2 look wonderful…..

 

I have a problem Sister/Brides tell me what you would do….  9 ppl have said they will not be booking with the travel agent but they are coming. I want 2 start ordering my OOT Bags and items. If these ppl that have told me, and who knows who else book after I order what should I do? The items Iâ€m ordering are: the bags, travel mugs, t-shirts, beach towels, (all personalized with Punta Cana and our date) suntan lotion and a camera.(I wanted 2 get items they could keep using after the trip) I canâ€t just go back and order 4 or 5 more that would cost 2 much. We get deals because weâ€re ordering in bulk. I donâ€t want 2 just order a whole bunch of extra because whoâ€s 2 say they will really book anyway. We have 43ppl booked with the travel agent so I was going 2 order 50 of everything. What do I do if more than 50 book?????????

What you need to do is give them a firm date as far as when they need to book...they don't need to book with the travel agent but if they don't honor your date then they will miss out on the OOT bags...or you could just order for those who are confirmed and then just buy some extra stuff at the store for extra people who book. It might cost you a bit more but at least you will have enough bags for everyone.

@msvasq thank you, I contacted my WC and she said that there won't be any problem incorporating them.  I want them at the ceremony at the beginning of the isle and at the end, and if they can incorporate them somewhere in the reception, but I'm focusing on them being at the ceremony.  I still don't know how, but I hope is not ugly.  LOL

I love all of your details!! &  T your dress is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! aaah!! so excited for you!!!!!!!! 

 

what are you going to do about your hair and makeup??? i have the spa prices ill post separately if any of you were interested in that.

 

btw i think your right about not getting charged extra for clean-up/set-up if you do the packaged b/c its included. but i did ask about the decor and Carolina my WC said it was $1  ::sigh::  but double check b/c the last thing you need is for them to upcharge you if at the end they don't even charge to hang stuff. its better to have it writing just to be on the save side!

My reception will be at the Porofino : ) Im hoping since my wedding is at 6pm by the time we have dinner it will have cooled off and its by the ocean so im hoping the breeze will help too!

 

Of course silly you can steal as much as you want!  You are all the blind leading the blind getting married at a place we have all never seen!  Im not sure what I would have done w/o Pinterest, Etsy, and FB!  These websites help a ton too!  So please steal away!!! : ) As soon as I get married ill be back to tell you all the DOs and DONTs! I know how much it helped me to hear what other brides have done : )

skyyy so sorry for the mini heart attack!!!

 

i agree w/ sheryl a firm date is what you need to give these ppl. & stalk if you need to, to get a response! lol

 

but if you get more than 50 ppl book is there somewhere else that would allow you to do a small order w/out costing you too much extra? i mean, your saving $$ by buying in bulk... maybe the addtl difference of buying lets say 10 more of each isn't so bad??

 

btw where are you ordering your goodies from??

 

 

oh! and question, do you get comp room nights with your TA?? b/c i've really pushed for ppl to book with the TA since we get free nights per a # of rooms books

Especially because I am also having a 6pm ceremony and have been thinking maybe it's not a great idea because it may not give us enough time to do the cocktail hour and reception, announcements, etc. but we'll see

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
