Congrats on setting your date!!!!! You'll find this forum sooo helpful, if it wasn't for these girls, I'd be lost! Feel free to vent, share your excitement, or just send a hello =) Good luck with all of your future planning, and always remember, HAVE FUN!!!!

If you see her name on the list of dates & usernames a few pages back, perhaps private message her? I actually met my twinnie on here, and I'm so glad I did! We are sharing all of this excitement and can't wait to get there and have a drink together =)

I interested if anyone has seen posts from the girl getting married June 29. (I know there is a wedding that day but don't know if she is on BDW). I would love to talk to her since we'll be there at the same time. Congrats to everyone! :)

I am sure your wedding coordinator will set up a conference call with you. Mine set it up immediately after I paid the balance for the wedding.

 

She quoted around $250 for set up fees. But I have read throughout this forum that some people negotiated. So I will try my best to do the same.

Jenny - THESE ARE AMAZING!!! You must be super estatic at the way these came out. And the double-sided RSVP is a great idea.  If you do not mind me asking how much did these cost? If i had to do it over again, I would have def opted to do the passport invitations! Your guests are going to love these!!!!! So happy for you!! :)

Unfortunately, for now, she has stopped making these custom passport invites due to her pregnancy [by now, I'm sure she's a mommy!] But, if you're interested, definitely contact her to see if she plans on starting them up again in the future. Only thing I'd forgotten when ordering was asking to print addressees & return addresses. I tried for hours to match the color purple as seen on inside of passport, but b/c of the paper & shiny finish it dulls the color a bit. But, they're only envelopes, so I got as close as possible & printed them all out in one night =) And best part of all, I was able to find the same script font online that IDS had used for the passports!!

I'm super excited to finally be sending these out. ..Hope you all love them, b/c I do!!

 

**The purple came out really dark in pictures [my camera doesn't take blues/purples well], so it's much lighter & matches great in person! But you can get the drift!**

I had asked for a double-sided RSVP tag made, to include the menu options for guests to select. This way, it's only 1 tag to send back in the envelope & guests won't miss including something!

 

Hope you like them...

Yes, it is amazing at how helpful all past and future brides are on this forum! There is no way I could go through this whole planning process without the advice and insight from all the ladies! Feel free to ask any questions as you begin your planning process! :)

 

Hum.....its been awhile since we have seen that List of Dates...If you come across it, please copy and paste and then add your name & date! :)

 

Happy planning!! :)

So technically you have not paid the $250 set up fee. I assume this is something we pay when we arrive at AS? Yes, I recall reading from other brides about negotiating. So that is what I am hoping to do too!  But that is based on the assumption that the set up fee is paid down in Mexico and it is not paid with our WC in Miami.

 

thanks!!

So I am handing out the Guest Mad Libs for my guests to fill out. Not sure when I should hand these out. Any suggestions? Maybe during the Welcome Dinner? Or during the cocktail hour? i was originally thinking during the reception but now I do not think that will be such a good idea considering I would rather have guests be dancing then be occupied with filling out these. Your thoughts?

 

Also, I am having the Photo Booth during my reception, which is for 2 hours. My reception is scheduled to start at 6:30 and end at 11pm. Should I have the photo booth at the beginning, or middle or end of the reception? Not sure what to do..... :(

Elaine - the setup fee has to be paid in cash at the resort the day of your planning meeting (usually the day after you arrive - they'll tell you at check-in what day and time your meeting with Lomas and the AS wedding coordinator is).

Elaine - we did Mad Libs at our cocktail hour to give everyone something to do.  Only about half the people filled them out though (the younger people).  Everyone said the appetizers were coming out quickly and they'd bring a tray of something, walk it around once, and then it was gone so they didn't have time for Mad Libs!  LOL!  If your cocktail party is longer than an hour, maybe it would be good to do them then.  I asked Lomas to make sure we got them all back at the end and they did.  I felt our reception was too small to do it there but as it turns out, our guests had quite a bit of time before we arrived from getting pictures taken and they hadn't even been offered drinks!

 

I think I'd do the photo booth at the beginning so people could do it as they walk in...  Where is your reception going to be?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
