Just wanted to check in and let you all know that I'm still alive. To be honest, I've been lurking a little bit on here from time to time - reading posts and trying to keep up. But generally, I've been kinda avoiding the forum because everytime I read the posts I just feel more stressed. hahaha -
hearing about frustrated brides being moved to AB (OMG I am so sorry you're going through that right before the big day) to the resort being booked full for our wedding weekend (right after I sent out my invites) ugghh... anyways I found for a while there that just keeping my head down and doing my own thing was the best for my stress level.
But... I'm hoping to be back and more involved for the rest of my planning process. I know that everyone on here has helped me so much and I do want to share my experience and knowledge with others too as I think it's key for everyone to plan their weddings more easily.
That said - we sent out our invites back in January (formal invites - had already done email save the dates back last may)... I'm going to try and take a picture of them this weekend after I find my camera and post on here to share with everyone.
Right now, we're working on planning an excursion day (probably to Chichen Itza and a cenote) and figuring out when everyone's flights arrive to decide when to do a welcome cocktail reception (or if to do one at all).
I remember last year lots of brides to be made lists and posted them weekly to help them keep on top of their to dos... hmmm maybe an idea to copy.
Anyways, long post... sorry Welcome all the newbies. Congrats to those who I missed saying that to recently and thanks for understanding my hiatus everyone
