I just wanted to let you know that our wedding was perfect... Just as I read it would be. Every little detail was taken care of and it was magical. Just breathe and go with it. Ut will be over before you know it.

 

I've attached our slideshow from our photographers Del Sol... Enjoy!! 

 

Much love from Mrs. O

Here's how I did them. The smallest business card order through Vistaprint is 250, so I figured I'll be giving people plenty of extras for their future travels, lol.

Curious to where you found your lanyards? That is a really great idea! Also  the travel mugs? I was thinking of doing those but I am concerned with having to bring them down to Mexico..not sure how that would work. Maybe they let you check trunks?? :)

I've been crossing tons off my list today for our out of town bags. I ordered the actual bags (neon drawstring bags), little medications for our survival kit, travel sewing kits, travel first aid kits, decks of playing cards, travel candles, personalized matchboxes, lens clothes for sunglasses, lanyards with ziplock badge holders for tip money & room keys, luggage tag holders, Shout wipes, and travel mugs. I really just want to order some packs of gum and SPF lip balms still.

 

I've also been a Vistaprint crazy person today. I ordered business cards for luggage tags, business cards for tags for our travel mugs, and some other stuff. I feel very accomplished!

 

We plan on giving our bags out a month before the trip, when travel documents are given out.

 

Also, I found a seller on eBay with cheap decorator stuff: http://stores.ebay.com/lingsupplies

Anyone who is looking for cute gift bags Vista Print is running a sale on Cotton totes that can be customized. I think the bag I am looking at is only $5.50 a piece for 20 with a customization!

That is a great price. We want to do a tote so they have a beach bag!

These are the travel mugs I ordered: http://www.dollartree.com/catalog/search.cmd?form_state=searchForm&keyword=travel%20mug

 

I originally wanted to do the personalized travel mugs, but to me, it wasn't worth it for the price. So, instead, I'm going to attach them to the travel mugs:

I plan on giving our bags out about a month before our trip, when we also distribute the travel documents. :)

Thanks KaraKristine!

 

I actually complained to the supervisor, Patty Romero.  She gave me a call and told me Ana (who I requested) was booked for the month of my wedding.  She did offer to kind of oversee my current WC's job though.  She said I could CC her on all of our messages so that they could both help me out.  After that conversation, I sent both of them a message with my remaining questions that never got answered.  My WC responded to me in 12 hours - go figure.  What I was really astonished by though, was that my WC had the audacity to straight out lie.  When Patty came to me, she told me that Elsa, my coordinator told her we've been talking on the phone and that's why there are no responses for a month at a time.  I have never spoken to this lady on the phone in my life.  I probably shouldn't have stayed with her, but I figured if her supervisor is watching over her shoulder, she'll do a better job.  

 

Thanks for your help!

Right before Christmas I was up in arms (shared my frustration on this site) and started relooking into other resorts.  Now, I'm staying with the Royal! It makes such a difference in your overall experience so I suggest switch asap :)

I am starting to get my gift bags together. We are doing more of gift bag than a OOT bag because some of our guests can only come for a limited time due to work and family. I think I am going to put in a hangover kit, a small first aid kit with bandades etc. What I would really like to do is give them some gifts from us that are known in the area. I was wondering if anyone who has been down there could give me some ideas. I have been reading up alittle on the PDC area and these are some ideas:

- Chocolates, Apparently PDC is known for its chocolates.

- small bottle of tequila from the area

- key chains

- shot glass

I have budgeted about 20-25 dollars a bag per guest or couple.

I have never been to the area and was wondering if the 5th ave district will have cute shops where I can purchase these items relevantly inexpensive.

 

Any input or help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!
