Happy Monday everyone!

Drew and I printed addresses on our STD postcards we ordered from VistaPrint! Anyone have advice on getting them mailed- can they do "metered mail" at the post office or do you physically have to slap a stamp on each card?

Desiree, get those photos up when you finally catch your breath! Glad you had a stellar weekend!

Oops forgot: Jannae- DON'T give your guests the option!!

I contemplated telling people who were super financially strapped that they could stay somewhere cheaper, but it would likely open a can of worms that you can't take back. I don't trust anyone to keep their lips sealed with information like that! They mean business with that 80% guest rule. Plus, it'd be so much more fun to have your guests all together getting to know each other. Make it seem like RPRM is the ONLY place to be!

Desiree - Glad you had such a great time!

 

Lisa your dress is gorgeous!

 

Jannae - I don't think you should give your guests the option! I am telling mine that all guests need to stay at RPRM! Also Wendy from Wright Travel contacted me she said the RPRM travel rates will be out in the next 2-3 weeks so to contact her then.

 

Also she said RPRM is a 3 1/2 star which I was surprised about because expedia rates it as a four star. But she said all the reviews she had so far about the resort was good, which I knew already. I will let you what kind of rate she gives me. I am also contacting another travel agent whose info was given to me by MrsMarch.

 

Also we chose our STD's we are doing "Boarding Passes" we found some samples online and my Fiance created one today and it looks really nice! I will post some pics when its finalized :-)

Kimmy- You might be able to just bring them all to the post office and pay for the postage there, but I actually had one weighed for postage and then bought wedding stamps for that amount. I was too nervous that if I just handed the box of STD's to someone at the post office that it would get messed up somehow.

 

Jannae- Like everyone else said, I wouldn't even give your guests the option. To me the whole point of even having a DW is that everyone is together for more than just the couple of hours that the actual wedding lasts; so if they stayed somewhere else they wouldn't be part of that.

Thanks for all your comments on my dress Ladies, I love it!!!

 

Jannae - I did tell my guests they could stay other places but no one has booked any where else cause they know that the party will be where everyone else is. I didn't send the info out in an email or invitation or anything but I did tell them if they asked.

I have one guest (wife of a GM) that does not want to stay at our resort but I didnt tell other people or give them the option, I only addressed situations where they asked about.

 

Lisa - - - <3 your dress, we're both maggie brides and so is Desiree!! yay!

 

Kimmy- I slapped stamps on all of them, and actually i went to www.stamps.com and had these stamps made and thus far they are a HUGE hit!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
