@@carrieandsam - We're October 19th, and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed.  When are you planning to send out your Invites?

 

Did the BDR help you tremendously?  We're trying to decide if we should try to squeeze one in to help answer some of our "logistical" questions.  What are the biggest pros/benefits you got from the BDR?

I'm having my guest receive them beginning of May and rsvp is due June 15. That gives me two months to get menu together and sent in. I believe we have to have menu selected 60days in advance.

Coming back from the BdR totally relaxed me and gave me full confidence in the hotel making my day special.

It helped me with decor ideas. Also getting to know the grounds and how the hotel is laid out helped me better answer my guests questions on which room to pick.

It helped to try out the resort as a guest so I could view the resort from the view point of my guest and give them helpful travel hints to make their experience better.

 

Overall I'm glad I did it since my biggest question was how will my guest know to go from the cocktail party to ceremony then ceremony to reception. I have a map for my guest that I labeled but I'm sure we will have guest that won't look at it.

 

Hopefully that answers some questions.

@@carrieandsam - Thanks!  My fiance is a bit of a nut (said lovingly) and is concerned that his large Italian family won't be able to make it on time to the ceremony as it's a bit like herding cats.  I think the BdR may help us so we can put together a more realistic timeline for that day.  I'll look into availability to see if we can make it down!  

 

I have gotten a few different answers from the fine folks at Lomas/Karisma with regards to booking private events.  Has anyone tried to use the "Free Private Events (dinner/cocktail hour)" for their wedding reception/rehearsal dinner/welcome dinner?   If so, were you able to secure a location for those events?  I'm unsure as to how that process really works...

Wow @@BecomingaRiggio the centerpiece is awesome! I love that table number, where did you get?

I'm thinking of a wooden table number and paint gold to match the table charges or wrapping a ribbon with number on it around the vase I'm using. I'll be working on that in the next couple of months:)

 

@@ACJCWed I'm telling all my guests the ceremony starts at 530 when it really starts at 6. That was suggested since pple tend to arrive late. Plus we hired the female violinists to start at 545 so we want our guest to take advantage of that plus the view of the skydeck. Also I'm having a cocktail ceremony beforehand.
