We had tables from 6 to 9. Make sure if you are planning to do seating arrangements you bring down a copy for the onsite coordinator so they can set it up properly. They did a great job with mine.

Hi Ladies! I have to catch up a bit... I decided to read this forum from the beginning, I'm only half way through and its been like two weeks!

I did find the sign up sheet of who was getting married when that was started months ago by Jenny and I thought it would be great to update it and get it current. I have done my best to make sure we were all there, but please double check and add yourself if I've left you off! I also added stars to those who have already married!

You should ask Grace (who is my WC too with Karisma) to see if they can book the sky deck for you. My TA just requested it be done and Fabio let him know it was booked.

Ok this is what I've got so far, which doesn't feel like enough:

Secured wedding date
Secured ceremony spot
Signed a contract and blocked rooms at the resort
Created my wedding website with all the info and RSVP location
Designed, crafted and put together my STD boarding passes and sent them all out
Booked my photographer who will do my engagement shoot next month and fly down to shoot my wedding day. He is traveling for free, staying for 3 days and shooting my wedding so he will technically be a guest. wink.gif
Wedding bands purchased
Wedding party selected and accepted
Chosen a friend to MC the event
Picked our first dance song (I think) and started downloading songs for wedding dancing since we're using my iPod
Next we're designing two different postcards with RSVP by dates for those unresponded and for those who have RSVP'd that they will attend will get a postcard nudging them to book early for good pricing.

I'm not getting ready to try on wedding dresses and discover my flower choice for my bouqet and start my DIY project for invitations etc.

=)

Wow, now you seem mega-organised already!!

well so far we have:

signed the initial wedding documents with the TA
booked us and all 18 other guests at the hotel :o)
booked the gold wedding package (which includes the photographer)

and that's it!!

we're not doing STD invites as pretty much all those coming are already booked as its such a long way for guests to come and so expensive to get to from the UK we had to liaise with family and best friends first before booking to make sure they'd be able to come.

I thought I wasn't going to do much other than just turn up lol but after looking at some of these planning threads, I REALLY want to do the wedding brochure/leaflet things, and the luggage tags, and the boarding pass/passport invites and a whole range of other things!!

problem for me is, all the info i've seen on here for how to make/buy the things is all based in America and so not really an option for me. going to make it a little harder, but hey...weddings are made to test you i think! I'll just have to put in a bit of extra hard work! just hope I can pull it off...?!

ALSO, I've finally done my planning thread. My review should be done soon too!

Looks Good! Your OOT bags, were those for your guests apon arrival? If so who did you get to label all of those? Also did you bring your own paper lanterns for the plaza?

Yes, the OOT bags were given to guests upon arrival. We tried to meet them in the lobby when they came to avoid the $5 delivery fee per bag. We had 59 guests and that ads up quickly!

I used a vendor through work. You can find the bags at HIT Promotional Products but they sell through distributors, not direct.

I did bring my own paper lanters. One of my awesome BM's did all of the research on the LED lighting and brought the lights with her and explained it to the onsite coordinators. They did a good job, they've done it before!

Katie,

 

You have everyone booked! Oh how lucky! That's the hardest part :)

 

Well as soon as I finish my passport invites I'll show you and if you need help I'll send you the template and whatnot. =)

 

I definitely think part of the fun is doing all the crafts and projects for sure! I'm a planner and I'm already nervous about stuff so I'm doing it way in advance but that's fine, feels better that way.

 

Amy

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
