Hey everyone,

 

I got married at Azul Sensatori in May 2010 and have a long-overdue review coming really soon. I know it's super late but better late than never right?? I will post the review this week but in the meantime just wanted to let everyone know that I am here if anyone has questions... I remember when I was planning I just wanted people who had actually been there to give me cold, hard facts, LOL. Feel free to ask away...

 

Meredith

I can't believe they pulled that so late in the game though....brutal!

Question for those of you that have your invitations done or in the works...

Most of the sites I have searched say if you are paying for the wedding yourself, you don't have to put any of your parents names on the invitation...

BUT...I am afraid that because we are still 8 months to our wedding, our parents haven't antied up anything because they still have time.

There has been no conversation about anyone helping us (which is fine), but I am afraid they will down the road and then its too late to have them on the invitation... I was thinking of just putting "together with their families"....anyone have ideas?? 

(I really think everyone feels because they are getting themselves there, that is them helping us.....and its an expensive wedding to go to, and are totally forgetting they are going on vacation for a week at an all inclusive!)  thatswck.gif

We were in a similar situation when trying to figure out how to word things. The way things stand: My parents are paying a third (which is a lot for them), we are paying at least half and his parents have only agreed (so far!) to throw a third of what my parents are contributing. In a way it didn't feel right to give both parents equal "credit" on the invitations but in the end, it felt even weirder to do anything other than "Jessie and Chris, together with our families, invite...." so that's what we did. I'm really hopeful that his parents will throw in more (they have the means to) and I imagine that once guests from their side start rsvp-ing, they'll be more willing to pitch in. I don't want to sound ungrateful because I really am grateful...I am! ;) My we do need a little help, especially if a lot of people say they're coming! I have a 7 page budget that I've shared with both families to show them exactly how things add up. We've actually budgeted in a couple hotel room nights to surprise my parents (and his if they end up throwing in more) with a paid room as a thank you. HOpe this helps....

We didn't include parents names, but that is most due to the fact that I lost my father 12 years ago, and my mother is in a full time care facility and will not be attending. His parents were crushed at the start, but also understood what an ackward position it put me in.

 

We literally wrote: Please join us in celebrating the marriage of..... and ..... Date, time, etc. No mention of any relatives. Quick, clean and simple.

Our wording was similar to Murmel's.  FI and I are paying for the whole thing ourselves, and our invitations say "Jaime & Talis are getting married!...date...place...blah blah...Please join us for an unforgettable weekend!" then went on with wedding website details.  We sort of stayed away from the whole issue because to be honest I was still pretty bitter when our invites went out.

Hey girls,  has anyone ever heard of anyone being successful with shipping stuff to the resort?  I know they don't recommend it but I'm wondering if it might be easier than lugging everything through the airport.  I have a lot of stuff!!! And Less is More, I'm thinking of you.  I hope all is coming together for you!

I haven't asked my WC yet, but I've read on here several times that you can't ship to the resort.  My FI thinks you can ship (via UPS or FedEx to the airport (or possibly to a UPS or FedEx store in Cancun).  I put him in charge of finding that out......he hasn't done it yet (or any of the other tasks assigned to him  :)), but I'll definitely post on here when I find out.  If you can ship to the airport, I would definitely rather do that than pay for extra bags and lug them around.

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
