75 is our MAX too. I am trying to be easy going about it but if all these people really do buy tickets....ahhh!! I just keep telling myself it will make for a very fun party. haha.

 

 

I have to say I did most of my planning in January and February and I am SO GLAD I did that. First, I basically had my pick of vendors. Second, I haven't been stressed out really at all yet. I'm sure it will get crazier, but at least I will avoid the burnout I hope.

 

 

My planning trip was awesome. It was just me and my mom, so we were able to get a lot done. I basically just met with people I had already hired, but it helped build the relastionship with them, you know? Plus, we had never been to Cabo, so it just gave us an idea of where things are, how to get around, etc. It helps when we are giving advice to others about the little things: renting a car, going to the grocery store, etc. My whole long detailed review is in the Private Folder, FYI.

 

 

When will you be there in Nov for the planning trip? We will be there the 9-18 for wedding + honeymoon. Ahhh, I cannot wait.

 

 

we got our invites at einvite.com. If you are a member of Costso, everything is 25% off and honestly, the quality is great and I totally personalized them to what I want! If you use the link http://pal.einvite.com I think you can get the Costco discount without actually proving you are a member! (shhh our little secret :) ) This is what they look like, except those aren't our names, and we got rid of the leaf thingy. We got 100 of them, plus gold lined envelopes and reception cards for $281 TOTAL. The paper is really thick and the ink is nice. A total steal, in my opinion, and they have nice customer service.

"It's crazy..I thought we would have 50 people, and right now we have 72 who say they are coming. I guess I'll believe it when I see their plane tickets though...it's so hard to get an accurate count. "

 

 

 

i try to warn people that this might happen....steve and i thought we'd only have 10-15 people but had almost 60!

that's crazy! the difference between 15 and 60 is a lot more than 50 and 75!! I *should* be under budget if less than 75 come at least....

i am sure- and we are still so far out everyone says they are coming but its SO hard to estimate who will really come. but we budgeted for 75 also- i am a little afraid it may go over- we both have really big families and then all of our friends are ready to go on a vacation! Janet- thanks for the info for invites- really appreciate it! so what details do you still have to do?

i had her do the same for me-she has been great. i think we are going to send out the save-the-dates pretty soon- which was sooner than we were originally planning- in hopes that people may book a little earlier (before we start reducing rooms from the room block)- haha- yeah right i am sure they will still all wait until the last minute- how many invites are you guys sending out? i think we are at about 150-175 with a total of about 250 people invited-ahhhh- that seems like so many!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
