    Maggie I am so glad you posted this.  I thought I could fit all of our wedding day stuff in one suitcase.  SO WRONG!  I have a few people in business class that will be bringing some stuff to help me out.  It didn't seem like it was that much until I started packing.  You're time is so close.  I am so excited for you!

    I loved it, and think it would look beautiful on the beach....it has a Grecian style.

    How do you know when to stop looking?  I really didn't want to try anymore on after this one....

    I am SO EXCITED!!!!



    Hey Melissa,

     

    I am having the same problem.  I don't want to dictate what we do the entire time, but I feel like I should have things planned.

     

    I am thinking that I may have the smores bonfire on Thursday, welcome party (with cigar roller) on Friday and then wedding on sat.  Also, I found blow up beer pong tables online so on Sunday, most of our friends are staying we may have a tourney in the pool!

     

    One month to go you must be so excited!  What did you think of your site visit?  Getting worried about not having been to ABH!

     

    Kerry

    We wanted to do the smore bonfire, but they were very very restrictive as to the time. Over the phone the latest we could get was 6pm-8pm. In my opinion way too early, and it's still dinner time. When we got to the resort, they said they might be able to do 7pm-9pm....but we ended up just not bothering.

     

    Love the idea of beer pong tables! Sounds like a lot of fun

    Ladies....is it the outside vendor fee for every outside vendor you bring in?

    ie.  photographer and DJ from outside the resort x 2 outside vendor fees or 1?

    :)

    Unless the outside vendor is staying at the resort for a minimum 3 days, then you have to pay the fee for each vendor. (you may need to check your contract, the vendor fee was $500. I think it has now increased?) We didn't have to pay the vendor fee for our photographer since they stayed the whole week with us.

     That 's the one piece of advice I starting giving to destination brides. Start putting everything you plan on taking with you in one place in your house/apartment, just so that you can see how much it really is! We ended up with 4 large suitcases, 2 carryons, and 2 suitbags. And I tried to keep what I was taking down with me to a minimum LOL!

     

     

    Jamie- We did Place cards for our tables too! I love that idea. And your welcome books look amazing- so professional!

      I was thinking about the smores bonfire on Thursday too. How much did they quote you for this and what time are you having it?  What are you doing for the welcome party on Friday? I think we are going to do the Beach BBQ. 

       

      We are going to buy a blow up beeer pong table too! We are trying to decide where to buy it...Did you already buy yours? Which on are you getting?

       

      I feel in love with Azul Beach Hotel during my site visit! I looked at about 12 hotels in 3 days and LOVED Azul Beach Hotel more than any other hotel I looked at.  You will love it...I think!

      Again, I took a lot of ideas from people throughout the forum (and some specifically in this thread).  I tried really hard to let anyone know in advance if I stole an idea...but I'm really sorry if I missed anyone!

            If you find something you love, that makes you feel like a princess I would say buy it! If you like that style, but are not 100% sold on that exact dress try Maggie Sottero destination line.I know there are some with similar styling. (it was on my list, but I ended up with something different) http://www.maggiesot...ion.aspx?line=d
            Happy dress hunting!

              Here is the hanger I originally wanted but it takes about 8 to 10 weeks to get and they were sold out when I wanted to purchase one. Here is their website: 300.png

                I know We leave in a week and one day!!!!

                Packing for the third time went well. I got all the wedding stuff in 2 suitcases and they are both under 50 pounds each so no extra charges. Now moving on to the other 2 suitcases for clothing and some odds and ends!!!

                  I should have thought of this sooner, but does anyone getting married the week after me want my xmas lights or white lanterns?  I'd love to do a hand off instead of repacking them :)

                    Jamie, I love your booklets, such a great idea. What exactly is in the book? I think that I may want to take on this project myself. What software did you use?
