Are you planning or did you steam your wedding dress at home? or did you do it through the resort?

 

Thanks!!

 

I did mine through the resort, and did DH's suit, as well.

We did both my dress and his suit at the resort. I had so much stuff coming with us already that I packed both of them in a suitcase so it was that much less for me to pack around with us. They did a great job too! I know my step-dad and the best man had their suits done as well and both thought they turned out good. Just be sure to ask your wedding coordinator because the bride and groom get a discount!

Has anyone looked at the wedding packages lately? I was just looking at them and noticed that they added a few things, at least since I booked which was back in April. I'm doing the Classsic wedding package and saw that they added  this -Marriage ceremony performed by a bilingual Secular Officiant.....what does that mean? Maybe we won't have to pay the outrageous fee of $600 just to have someone marry us? We planned on having a friend do it since we are just doing a symbolic wedding. So i'm about to hit the 6 month mark of our wedding, and its kinda making me nervous. I feel like there is so much to do and I haven't really done anything. I've got my dress and photographer booked, but now I feel like I'm just waiting for people to actually start booking then I can go from there, like gettting started on OOT bags and stuff. Summer brides, where are you at in the planning process?

I'm glad you pointed that out - I booked the Classic in April as well, but am paying to add a bunch of guests for my wedding in Jan. The new classic includes 5 more guests for the package price (which is the same) and a bunch more inclusions like officiant, etc. I did notice there is a new note that you have to purchase $85 day passes for non-resort guests, but afterdoing the math, it still seems like the new package is a better deal. After I saw your post I emailed my coordinator to see if I could have that pricing (my payment is due next week). Have not heard back, but will let you know when I do.

 

And in response to your comment about the planning process, my RSVPs were due October 15, and up until this week I have still had people change their response. I am 6 weeks out and won't be able to completely knock out gift bags, escort cards, etc. until next week. I think you're probably in good shape!

I just heard back from my coordinator and she told me that any changes made to the package will not apply to our wedding since we booked it before the changes were made....hmmm

I heard the same, but I am going to fight that - they told me when I booked that pricing for 2013 ala carte was not set, so they couldnt tell me what it was going to be until it was, but I wasn't able to lock myself into the current, likely lower, pricing when I booked. They can't have it both ways. Stay tuned. I also can't find anything in the contract I signed that says that I am bound to the pricing when I booked, even though my wedding is in 2013 and the pricing for that had been re-set.

If you haven't, you should look into Del Sol! That's who is doing mine, and they are AMAZING. I did a ton of research in PDC and their pics  and recos to use them kept coming up everywhere I looked. They've been great to work with so far - will post my pics after my wedding in 6 weeks!
