Hey Aventura Brides!

 

I was wondering... did anyone make programs for the wedding? If so, did your coordinator provide you with a timeline for the ceremony for you to make them?

 

Also, how did you keep track of your guests? I'm worried we're going to get down there and just be completely lost.

 

I'm in panic mode because it's less than 3 months until my wedding and I feel like I have SO much to pull together! Any advice would help. :)

Rachel - Your wedding looked like so much fun and you looked gorgeous! Can't wait to read your review. It's reassuring to hear good things. Might PM you with some questions to soothe my anxiety!!

Hey ddiinnyyeell...

 

I was in panic mode right up until we left...I think that's normal when it gets so close.

My WC sent me an outline of the ceremony...I can send it to you if you still need it. Email me at rachel.andersen@hotmail.com and I'll send it over. She was also able to provide me with the name of our judge performing the ceremony so I put that on my program.

I was able to keep track of the guests pretty easily...but we only had 17 and 4 stayed at another resort. We handed out passport booklets with info and there was page to write each person's room number in it that we used a lot. My two girlfriends were in the same building as us so that helped too. We did have a small issue with where they put everyone but in the end it really didn't matter. How many guests do you have going?

 

NaM-

Thank you so much! It really was a blast! I really need to get going on my review and my planning thread (wayy late!) but feel free to PM me or Email me in the meantime.

your pictures were really cute, Rachel. can't wait to read your review and look at more of your pictures. I'm planning to get married at Aventura Cove next year May and still have virtually all of my planning to get done. sad.gif

 

did you take any of the tours the resort provided? I thought that would be pretty neat, it'll give my guests something extra to do on their own.

Rach --

 

We have 26 people coming. How did you get everyone's room numbers? It seems like we don't know our room number til we get down there. I did get the ceremony outline from my wedding coordinator. Did you do a walkthrough the night before to make sure everyone know what they were doing?

From what I understand there are no walk throughs or rehearsals...the guys are supposed to be there 30 min before the start of the ceremony and the WC tells everyone where to stand and what to do, the rest just kinda flows.

Do you have a TA? Ours has been keeping track of room numbers as they book so we know where everyone will be staying. There are about 50 of us and we are very spread out!

No, we didn't do a travel agent. I'm regretting it now. When we booked we weren't given a room number so we probably won't know til we get there. I'll probably just ask the front desk when I get there for everyone's room number. Ho hum... i can't wait for this to be done and I can look back and realize how I stressed over nothing :)

None of our guests were given room numbers when they booked...I'm surprised you got them already!

 

In terms of figuring out room numbers, we got ours when we arrived and left messages for people who hadn't left home yet (free calls!) telling them the room we were in and to give us a call with their room number when they arrived.

of our guests

We also called the front desk when we knew people would be arriving (we had everyones flight info) and they connected us to their room, but wouldn't give out the number. We only had 13 guests staying at the resort so it really wasn't that bad. Getting ahold of our guests that stayed at the Catalonia was much more difficult since they didn't have a voicemail system!

HI Everyone!

Has anyone had an issue with the red aisle runner? I am only asking because my colors are pink and orange and I just think the red may clash. Do you know if we are allowed to have it removed?

 

Dinyell--I am freaking out too..so much last minute stuff that I feel clueless on;-)

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
