Josie- those sandals are very original; I'll have to look into them. Thanks for the suggestion!

 

One more question for all of you: on your invitations what time are you putting for your ceremony?

 

My ceremony will be at sunset & the WC said that will be either 5 or 6 pm…..so….do I just put “at sunset” on the invite and then include an itinerary in the welcome bag of the exact time once I know?

 

Thanks!

I'd definitely put "sunset" and include the exact time on the welcome letter/itinerary. My wedding is at like 3, so I didnt really have this issue. I included an "information card" (same size as response card) with a bunch of details on the wedding/welcome dinner, etc. And I put "Times are subject to change" so that everyone knew nothing is set in stone! I'll provide final details to them when they check in :)

Paige2010 - It is about an hours drive south from the resort :) It's not too bad of a drive though, there's a lot of scenery to look at along the way! Plus our van's tour guide had a ton of interesting facts about Xel-Ha and Tulum!

Have any of you started you OOT bags? I am just starting...I know I am way behind but if any of you have any awesome ideas I would love to hear from you!! Or any online retailers you think are good. I have checked all the threads on OOT bags and I have some ideas but I am kinda overwhelmed by all of them. I also don't know the exact number of guests so I find it hard to get started....I am a little stressed!!!

Hi Lisa,

I found cute beach bags on sale this week @ Wal-Mart for $5 each (they also have mesh bags for $3) that I am using. I still have 6 months until my wedding, but know I won’t be able to find beach bags in Jan. Here is my (tentative) list so far:

Word Puzzles/ Sodoku books

Decks of cards

First Aid Kits (bandaids, Pepto, Motrin, Tylenol) from Costco

 

Maybes:

A mini-wallet/purse (can be used as a key card/money holder)

pashmina

travel mug (I’ve heard these are a hit)

 

I really like Wedding Favors, Bridal Shower Favors, Party Favors by Beau-coup and may get a few personalized items to include as well.

 

I'd love to hear what you decide to include. Keep us updated:)

We have about 60 guests, I am thinking a bag in the $20 range per person is good. But once you buy the mugs and the tote bags it doesn't leave you much else. I have been checking dollar stores and walmart here constantly because I see all the other brides that can find deal but apparently I am looking in the wrong place because I haven't been able to find anything!!

 

Thanks mrsMarch for your ideas!

 

I will keep you updated as to what I get. thanks for your help ladies.

Lisa-

I'm using Promotional Tote Bags | Custom Tote bags | Custom Printed Tote Bags to buy my bags. i debated for a long time and decided not to put my monogram on them because i dont think people will use them again. Instead I'm either going to leave them blank and put a tag with our monogram, or put a logo on the bag that has palm trees and says "Playa Del Carmen" but not our names.

 

As far as what to put in them. I'm going to do a welcome letter, mugs, sunscreen, asprin, maybe a deck of cards, breathmints or gum, maybe a little fan & possibly some bottled water. I'll keep you posted on any more decisions :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
