Thanks Girls for all the help! My WC told me many brides have shipped to the resort but some items did not get there on time :( I guess I will be dragging these things with me... I think what I might to is just buy one huge old suitcase, fill it up with stuff and just leave it all there when I am done. It would be awesome if I could leave t there and one of you Girls could use it. At least it wouldn't all go to waste...

After reading all these comments and suggestions, I sat there thinking about it and said "baby, we need to make an early trip to Mexico to drop off stuff before the wedding" suffice it to say we are haulin it all with us too, lol but I love your idea of leaving stuff for the next bride, I wonder how that would work?

Happy Friday to my fellow ASP/ACP brides!!! 

 

So I am down to 98 days now!!  Things are going pretty good.  Our RSVP date is next week so we will see how many we actually get back.  Still a few major things to do (GM attire, BM dresses, wedding bands) but mostly I just have small stuff that depends on the number of guests. 

 

How is everyone's planning going??

sxcT - Girl I'm right there with you. RSVP date is this week and only my mom and sister/husband have RSVP'd - What is wrong with these people? I have a feeling a few are going to leave it for the last minute. I've gotten alot done over the past few weeks. Just this past week we ordered our bands.

 

My date is slowly approaching (October 27, 2011).  I think I go before you? right?

How funny!!  We just ordered our bands this weekend too.  FI is getting a custom one made!! (so excited)  That was a huge thing to check off the list.
 

I also ended up getting my jewelry - CHECK!!!  So glad I have them to bring with me next month when I get to try on my dress.

 

I just sent out another email letting our guests know that they need to respond by this weekend and they need to reserve their rooms before we release them.  I bet I might get one response out of that LOL!!  So frustrating. 

 

Yes you are before me.  I'm 11/18/11.  Please come back to the board and post a review and pictures as soon as you can.  Can't wait to see some recent reviews and pics!!

Planning is going good! In the process of getting our wedding bands and bridesmaid dresses right now. I've just been doing alot of research online to get ideas and loving hearing others reviews of ASP...it gets me sooo excited!! Still haven't gotten a response back from my WC yet and I emailed her months ago...oh well, I have given up and I will wait until the month before to talk to her. At least I'm getting reviews/pic on here so that I can pick my places basically without even talking to her.

 

So I can't remember where I read it, BUT did I read somewhere that they did away with the dress code for the specialty restaurants at ASP? Like the long pants, collared shirts, and shoes for men?? I think that would be awesome if they did because not everybody wants to wear those things when they are in Mexico on vacation!! I think it was someone's review that said they had just made the change when they were there that week.

 

I've been working on my luggage tags, key card tags, and OOT bags lately...using ideas that I got from here of course:)

Hope this will help some of you?

 

As far as hauling your decor and things there, think about packing carry on's with TSA friendly items and asking your wedding party and family to carry them for you.  That is what we did, and it worked out great!  Every person can take a carry on PLUS a personal item, so even if you ask a couple, I'm sure one of them could take a carry on for you!!

 

And as for the RSVPs...we got 6 back, and 4 of them were no's.  Only my mom and one of my bridesmaids actually sent the RSVP back.  Everyone assumed if they booked, that was that.  It is so hard not to stress about people not booking in time either, but try hard not to.  People who want to and can be there will be, and those who aren't, well they just aren't.  No one likes to say no to the bride and groom, even though we want them to just give us an answer. :oP

Well ladies, I can only imagine the stress you're going through but as many have mentioned - those who will book, will and those who won't....won't. Course, you'll have to remind me of this when MY rsvp date gets closer! lol

 

We just booked our honeymoon (Grand Velas, just up the street from ASP) today - yaay! I'm going to pick up my dress this weekend (whoo hoo!) and look at BM dresses. Right now trying to decide between Fernando and MVP for makeup/hair, trying to decide if I want a videographer, deciding if I should go with JSAV (ASP's preferred DJ) or Mannia or Doremixx, etc., and just trying to get in shape for my boudoir present to the FI ;)

 

I would LOVE to start the OOT bags, favors, etc. but I have NO idea how many ppl will be coming - how are you ladies handling this with the guests that are dragging their feet to book?

Hello Ladies!

So I have 81 days to go.. Time is just flying by...As far as planning...I upgraded to sapphire collection a couple of weeks ago, so that I won't need to worry about the ceremony decor. I still need to : buy FI a wedding band, my jewelry, BM jewelry and their bouquets..., part of my favors just arrived and the other will be here on Thursday so then I will need to put those together. Other than that I need to work on vows still and then itinerary of the extra trips we are going to take. I actually just send out the invitations yesterday with a RSVP date Sep 10th :) These took forever but are absolutely beautiful, so worth the wait...! I honestly feel like I still have lots to do but on the other hand I will have had only 5 months to plan it all... Happy Planning everyone!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
