Reneeâ€s to doâ€s:

1. Get brochures printed not done

2. Make luggage tags for guests I made the inserts, I just need to buy the plastic holders

3. Mail off brochures & luggage tags not done

4. Keep working out! DONE!! I have worked out daily--stupid insanity is kicking my butt, but I think it's working

5. Find the bridesmaid's dress in a large!! *sigh* 19 Ross stores and no large....at this point, either she can squeeze into a medium, or I bought an extra medium and a small--maybe a seamstress can make it work?!

6. Sit down with FI and start making decisions (food, decorations, etc.) not done

 

My New To-Do List!

1. get brochures printed!

2. mail off brochures and luggage tags

3. KEEP WORKING OUT!

5. Finalize all wedding decisions with FI (I'll wear something sexy and bribe him to sit down for 30 minutes, lol)

6. Submit invoice to Tiffany for wedding decisions

7. Start buying things for OOT Bags (ooh, I found cute bags that I bought at the Dollar Tree!)

8. Order personalized mugs

9. Order raffia fans

Thanks! I am still trying to figure out a photographer, what do you girls suggest? I thought about doing the cheapest package the resort offers for the actual ceremony and then using a photographer in the area to do pictures before the wedding. What are your thoughts? If I were to do that, are there photographers you would recommend?

soon to be Mrs. Frommert, I thought I had replied to your post, but I don't see it on here. Congrats on the upcoming wedding this weekend, how exciting! You will definitely have to let me know how it goes and how your reception is. I am shocked that the resort still charges for the sand ceremony when you are bringing your own supplies, just another way to rack up the bill. What are you doing for music?

I paid $45 for a sand ceremony. They also provided the sand, I just picked the colours.
Something else to consider - if you're having a private reception you have to arrange for music, which means you have to rent their equipment I believe. I'm only mentioning it so that you can budget for that if that's what you want to do.

I used Moments that Matter (MTM). THey are actually forum members and I highly recommend them. They are a Canadian couple that moved to Playa del Carmen last year. They honestly saved my wedding day from what could have been disasterous. Here's their website MEXICO Destination Wedding Photography, Wedding Photojournalism throughout the Mayan Riviera
You can see some of my pics under galleries - Nicole & Curt.

I would check with Tiffany to see what the "current" outside photographer policy is. To use an outside photographer, you have to pay $500 fee or have them stay for 3 nights. I recently booked (yes, I am getting married in less than 3 months! :) ) at the Azul Beach and was told that I could not use anyone that was Mexican-based that was not the "approved" photographers. We could, however, bring in someone from the United States. I am still baffled by this policy - I get the extra fee since they have relationships with certain companies, but I would think they would prefer for us to spend our money locally. We are flying someone in from Ohio - it's a little pricey, but something we decided to do.

Hope that helps!

Shoot! I have a note in my Blackberry to check out some Ross' for you just totally forgot... I'm going to see if I can do that this week for you. There have got to be a ton of them in LA.

LOL!! I haven't even tried this tactic out yet, let me know how the hot outfit bribe goes. wink.gif

    • 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?
