Any suggestions?

Reneeâ€s to dos:

1. Mail off brochures and luggage tags-- half done....I tried to make luggage tags, and it was driving me crazy, so I ordered some online instead. I mailed off the brochures, and then I will send off luggage tags in a month

2. Decide if we want a cake topper, and if so, order one--decided I want a cake topper, but haven't decided which style I like...

3. Keep shopping for OOT bags--done! I bought OOT bags for the single guys (my FI did not think they would like the bright flower ones I picked up for the ladies!). Also bought frisbees, whistles, coils for the key card holders, shout wipes, and pashminas for the girls

4. Remind all of my booked guests that final payment is coming up soon--done! sent out friendly e-mail reminders about payment coming up

5. Order raffia fans--DONE!

6. Order personalized mugs--not done sad.gif

7. KEEP WORKING OUT!--done, I have lost 2 more pounds--5 more to go!

8. Start working on music selection--still working on it

1. finish the menus and programs on the computer--I don't want to print them yet in case they change, lol

2. figure out my cake topper

3. trial up-do with my veil/flowers

4. take dress in for alterations (I need to get it hemmed and bustled)

Meghan, I was supposed to have these beautiful orange and pink flowers, but I am second guessing it. I want to discover a theme all of a sudden. I have until April 9th (my 45 day mark - lol).

Amanda, considering the DJs at the hotels are doing weddings all the time, I am assuming they are good. Considering Riveria Maya is the most popular spot for Destination weddings, I just think the DJ will do a good job. I am still going to bring a list of suggested songs and a flash drive just in case wink.gif

Katie, I am super psyched for you!!! Thats awesome about the previous bride leaving you stuff.

I wrote our ceremony this weekend - its still going to be changed I am sure, but getting started felt goooood!

Amanda, I just wanted to let ya know we used the hotel dj, it went very, very well. They had alot of new music although tiffany has no record of that lol. Also, theyre were a few songs that they didn't have, that were requested, and they downloaded them on itunes during my reception for us wink.gif The dj was such a nice guy and gave lots of extras, ballons, bubbles, fun props. Although to be truthful I do have to say this: I paid $1500 and the dj himself only gets approx $200. I was livid when I found this out. I only asked because I thought it was alot of money and I inquired about what the money is for, just to see if I could get a breakdown and possible get a better price. They told me the resort owns the speakers and equipment so they only pay him for his time. SUCH BULLSHIT. I understand that part of it, but then how are you gonna charge that much additional money. It's crazy and wrong in my oppinion. I would have totally cancelled the dj but "it was not allowed".
