Sorry if this is long....

 

OK...so now my mom has added something else for me to do. Apparently now we need to also have an AHR. Grandma and FFIL aren't coming to Mexico, and Grandma just now showed a little disapointment about not seeing me in my dress. So, we are doing at AHR. It was discussed in the past for people who couldn't make it to Mexico, I just didn't realize I'd have to plan it (mom is paying and we want LOW key).

 

I'm searched for wording for what I want, but haven't been able to find it so I figured I'd start a new thread.

 

Unlike others who have sent out wedding announcements to people who weren't invited, we are inviting EVERYONE to Mexico, if you can come, great, if not, no biggie.

 

We were thinking of leaving the announcemnts all done with FFIL and have him mail them out the day after our wedding, to the people who couldn't attend.

 

Basically, I want it to acknowled that they we missed them and we want them to come celebrate with us when we retun and we don't want gifts. (I feel like if they get the announcement after RSVPing no to our wedding, it'll look like we're looking for gifts).

 

Any suggestions? Advice? Help?

Here is the wording for our announcemnt:

 

With Great Joy and Happiness

Karen Louise Skorupski

and

Jason Kenneth Lambert

announce their marriage

Wednesday the Fourth of July

Two Thousand Seven

Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa

Tulum, Mexico

 

My mom sent out the announcement and our AHR invites on our wedding day. Perhaps you can include an insert in your AHR invite saying that the bride and Groom consider your presence at their celebration as a wonderful gift and that no other gift is required or something to that extent. But i got to tell you I would feel funny going to a AHR empty handed. So you probally will get gifts anyhow.

Another question...did you also send them to people who were invited to the actual wedding but RSVP'd no? Or were they basically for people who weren't invited to the wedding?

Announcements are for anyone. We sent them to all our friends, associates, and family including those who were invited to the AHR. We eloped so Jay and I were the only ones at our wedding lol.

We will send ours to everyone. A lot of our friends and family couldn't afford to travel, find someone to watch their kids, get time off work, etc. so we want them to feel included. Just because they couldn't come to the wedding doesn't mean we don't want to celebrate with them!

I think that's cute! It also sets the tone for a casual reception. You don't want your guests showing up in black tie for a BBQ, ya know! :)

 

I always panic about what to wear to weddings!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
