But then again it was Tiffany and she was so slow to respond and certainly didn't have her stuff together. Here's hoping Carolina will be a gem. :) Fingers crossed.

    Hi Amanda,

    Carolina is great! She is my WC and she's been wonderful so far! You will be very happy with her.

    Cheers,
    Nikki

      That's so soon. Lucky you! And you'll be fine. I am sure you'll get it all together in time!

      I just saw your ticker. You are 3 weeks and 3 days out. I am 3 months and 3days out. Yay. :)

      Also, your bridal shower sounds like fun. I am having mine next weekend. I know that's early by I am traveling back home to Baltimore for a weekend full of festivities. It's my mom's bday and we are having my son's 1st bday back there so we can be with family. Its alvery exciting just a lot to get done in the 3 days.

        I'm thinking we're gonna do both. We've started getting things for the OOT bags and I have to say that we've lucked up so far and everything was only $1 (except the Spanish for Dummies - $1.50) So I imagine we'll be spending like $10/bag. FI wants to stop it there and I may agree later on but I wanted to give out a small photo album to have them put pics from the wedding in.
        Hey Meredith-I'm looking at yours right now..I like that you have a dedication page...might have to add that to my work in progress page. What do you have on your For the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen? Might have to steal that too :)
        Yeah, I actually haven't put anything up there yet (obviously). I thought FI would have used it before I did but he hasn't done anything with it either. On the Bridesmaids/Groomsmen page it's updates for them. I wasn't crafty enough to do a newsletter so when I need to update them I shoot them an email and tell them to refer to the site. I did it this way because when it's all over we can get the website saved to CD and I wanted to keep all that info in one place. The password is meredith if you want to check it out.

        That was a good idea. I was going to use the sand from Mexico for our sand ceremony in addition to purple sand....and its free!

        I'm doing the cigar roller too and didn't think about matches. Those are pretty cheap too.

        Marla, I love your engagement story! How amazingly great that he got everyone in the restaurant to participate!!! Soooo glad you got your ring put back together.

        Meredith, I love your engagement story! He really put some thought into it with the stones, apple and all. Too cute he was sleeping!!

        You have one gorgeous wedding party, BTW. The best man looks SHARP in his picture!

        Neither. I had grand ideas of things I wanted to do for favors, but DH convinced me that our families weren't the keepsake kind of people. And he was right. Anything we gave them would have most likely ended up in the trash. If we'd had friends there it might have been a different story.

        Our "favor" to our guests was a sailing trip.
        Marla - I agree...that was very creative of him!! I'm glad your ring worked out afterall. That would've been a shame if they couldn't fix it. It's similar to my ring.

        Wendy - Thx! I was always paranoid that I would be caught off guard and I would wind up being embarrassed or something. I always imagined him doing it in front of a bunch of people. But what he did was great and we'll always be able to laugh about it! That's also one reason I made him get down on one knee in our engagement photos.

        I was!!! I was running around the house cause I thought he was somewhere hiding and waiting for my response/reaction. I ran everywhere opening doors and screaming. Lo and behold the last door I opened was the guest room and there he was looking like "what's going on"!!! Hilarious! So we started calling everyone and his cousin asked, "Did she say yes?" He looked at me and was like I don't even know! He told her, "I assume it's yes she's running around with the ring on her finger." Definitely not what I always imagined but priceless all the same!

How far in advance did you book the resort...I have the wedding date confirmed and the deposit for that is already paid..so that part is taken care of. The new TA is saying it might be better to wait a little while to see what kind of deals and promotions might be available. Help Please :)
        I would say ask her about price matching. My TA said that if we found a lower rate anywhere that she would match the price. Needless to say, my guests have been on top of that, they even called other TAs and no one has beaten her price yet. Maybe if she offers that your guests will at least be reassured that they're getting a deal.

          Maybe I am freaking for no reason, but you ladies all know how it is. I am sure one of you will tell me not to worry and that's exactly why I came here first! So thanks in advance!

          I also wanted to see if anyone has worked with or is working with my new WC, Carolina and what your thoughts are about her. Please share if you don't mind.

          Thanks so much!
          I don't have her but I think it will all be fine. Like AmyKH said, they have all your info in a spreadsheet. When all else fails ask for a supervisor. I'd say don't stress about anything unecessary. Cross that bridge only IF you come to it.

          This sound like lots of fun too! Definitely make sure you have an energy shot or two. Who needs sleep when you're gonna have all of that going on? Lol!

I'm DEFINITELY going to do either beer koozies or stadium cups that have a logo on them so that everyone can sort of "recognize" who's there with our group.

              Marla and Miriam GREAT WEBSITES!! They're both wonderful. Congrats on all that hard work.
              Ok thanks!! Right now, I am just doing OOT bags...and they are FILLED with crap. Wasn't really wanting to fork out more money for favors. And we are leaving straight from the reception to go to Coco Bongo, so I was thinking people would just leave them behind anyways.

                      Are you talking about booking the resort for your guests? We waited as long as we could...Our rates started out a lot higher than we ended up getting them for. A lot of negotiation took place!! I think we sent out a "must book now" email back in April...so 4 months before.
