@@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.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • Please help me out, I am little bit confused in choosing the right website. As I am looking for a wedding ceremony script, I visited many websites but I found only three useful but still have doubt in choosing one. So I put a poll to determine which is the better option. Please vote and share your opinion. Thanks🙂 
    • Congratulations Kim and follow all mandatory guidelines and be safe. BEST WISHES both of you💞
    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
