KimmyG- thank you for the reassurance. You are exactly right, I totally want people to start booking but I think they are giong to panic when they see the prices!

Anyhow, I'll try to remain calm.

Can anyone tell me when is a good time to send out STDs for a destination wedding? Mine are being delivered to my house today!!!

Our prices have also dramatically decreased from the time I first decided on RIU RM! I knew they would based on the information from our TA as well as the information from all the girls on the site! Don't stress if the prices seem high now! We still have a few people who haven't booked and look how close we are wink.gif

That's so neat that your wedding planning is being profiled! Thank you for the feedback. Our DW TA has not exactly been helpful or responsive, so we are going to request changing to Camille...

Hi Ladies!

 

I am back in the site after 4 months I beleive! Last few months have been crazy busy for me, I was in vacation in Bangladesh/India for a month and a half and as soon as I got back I got busy studying for the CFE (Certified Fraud exam) which I took and passed last week. So finally now I can focus on wedding stuff :-)

 

I see a lot of new members and quite a few who got married in the past few months :-) I have been reading the posts for the last few hrs to catch up on things!

 

As for me I am getting married June 5th at the RPRM and here is a rundown as to whats happening with the wedding stuff!

 

Save the Dates & Invitations

 

I sent the STD in Nov 2009 and invitations last months. So far we have 45 people booked and I am super excited! I am thinking we will get around 50 to 55 guests.

 

As for the STD I did boarding passes and for the invitations I did passport invitations. I am not sure how to post pics here once i figure it out I will post the pics. I got the invitations from Customer paper work. below is a link to it to show what kind I got! my colors are pink and brown.

Rebecca’s Lime and Pink Passports

 

 

Dress

 

I got my dress from demetrios and will go for my alterations end of march. I still need to find shoes. Looking for high heels which are comfy (if sth like that exists). My FI is 6ft 2 and 5 ft 2 hence I need some heels :-)

 

The dress is between a mermaid and A -line with lace, its ivory, I will post pics soon.

 

I am still also deciding if I should wear a veil or not.

 

 

Registry

 

We have been living together for 3 years so we pretty much have all the household stuff we signed up for a honeymoon registry through honeymoonwishes.com

 

we plan to go to Italy for our honeymoon around sept/oct.

 

Travel Agent

 

I got Wendy from Best Destination Wedding as my TA and she is truly wonderful to work with. The prices fro RPRM recently dropped and she did a price adjustments for everyone who booked so far!

 

 

RPRM

 

Our wedding time at 5:00 pm at the Gazebo, as for the reception we want a private one so waiting to see exactly how many guests we have. I know we can have a private reception if we get 60 guests but even if we dont i heard you can pay and have one. So keeping my fingers crossed on that.

 

As for the room we booked the External Jacuzzi suite with the spiral stairways, I dont know the room number yet but was told it will be 2095 or around there. Same room where tylersgirl (previous bride) was I beleive.

 

 

So thats all the update for now. I am going to be good and try and login atleast 2-3 times a week.

 

To all the new brides welcome and happy planning!
