    Hello lovely Brides to be,

     

    Im glad everything is going smoothly for everyone.

     

    Natalie, yes I finally decided on a TA! It only took like 2 months lol

     

    I sent out my save the date magnets this weekend and I'll probably have an idea of how many ppl are coming by the end of the week. I'm not going to order any favors or anything until I have an idea of how many ppl are coming.

     

    For centerpieces, I really want flowers and don't want to bother making my own. Skyy gave me the info of this florist place called Floristeria El Tronco, they are located outside Dreams. I'm going to email them later today and I'll let you guys know how it goes. Prices are very reasonable compared to the resorts. Skyy thanks again for sharing :)

      Negitadr,

       

      Good job on the invitations. They look very nice!

       

      I also want passport invitations but I would have to order it from somewhere. I'm really not that artistic lol

       

      If anyone is ordering passport invitations, please share the info with me. Thanks

                Good Morning, I forgot 2 mention we have a wedding website. My FI did it, well I did my info about my bridal party and I wrote something about him. He did all the travel and guest info. I wish we could see who looks at it. We have over 650 views and only 10 comments SMH. We sent out 100 save the dates and the website was included. My FI wrote a comment the other day just so I could get a notification and have something 2 read (that was so sweet of him). I didn't add a picture yet, I never like my pictures and when I saw so many ppl were looking I really got picky but I really need 2 put 1 up. If any 1 wants 2 take a look feel free "roccandkimbleadream.com" let me know if u see anything we need 2 add. Have a great day, Skyy

                    Wow! A lot to catch up on!!!!  

                     

                    btw @Skyy i love that you call us Sister Brides 

                     

                    @Tcruz. I can't see the pics :/  can you repost???  -- & I love your DIY ideas.. its sound amazing!!!!! Do you think you'll travel w/ your things or send them ahead of time????   

                     

                    As for me, I'm totally all up in the air about what to do but I'm thinking of hanging lanterns & tons & tons of candles. minimal on the flowers- just for the wedding party & ceremony?.  My reception is at Oceana so I asked the WC and they can hang them from the beams for a fee.  & i'm definitely going to have to revisit Pinterest lol I had to stop b/c i would spend hours on there LOL its addictive! 

                     

                     

                     

                    @Carolina, for save the dates I went the cheapest by using PaperlessPost  -- we didn't want to spend $ on postage 2x so the invites will be sent to everyone who got a save the date. I decided to go w/ and Etsy vendor who designs the invitation for you & you print it.  

                     

                    btw @Skyy I love your save the date idea!!!!!   & do you mind sending my the info to the florists?? I'm curious to see what they charge too! (msvasq@gmail.com)

                     

                     

                    @NegritaDR those invites look awesome! & all of your DIY stuff looks really great!!!! i love your bouquet!!! i tip my hat to you for doing all that work!!!   What are you giving as your favors!???

                     

                     

                    & what are you other ladies thinking about doing for favors???  thats been my #1 "i dont' know"

                     

                     

                    @Natalie, i did set up a wedding website & its the best thing ever! lol -- anytime I've sent an update to my guests I've always directed them to the site. Btw, I didn't get to finish my site by the time the STD's went out. So we like that we gave our guests a new section to look for when they do visit :)  btw I've even put a FAQ section b/c everyone seems to ask the same questions! if you don't have a site, get one! it helps so much with organizing all the information.   a
