    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.
        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...?!

        Katie.

              Dress code: Le Chique is pants for men. All of the other places are pretty casual during the day, but no wet bathing suits. Men need to wear shirts. We never had any problems.

              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
