@@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 All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
