I have started a couple of threads here, including "a get fit for the isle thread." I went throughout this thread when I was planning another wedding because I knew this was were I wanted to have mine. Wendy is great and we plan to have about 40- 50 people. I'm not sure about everything else. I'm trying to knock the little stuff out the way because I have a habit of seeing the big picture and forgetting about the little things. I did start working on mine and my bridesmaids bouquets. I'm doing real touch and brooch and I will post a DIY thread when I'm done. I'm having a hard time deciding between tropical theme and beach theme. My DIY STD's were both. I booked with Del Sol for a 5pm wedding at the gazebo. I plan to have a cigar roller and mariachi band play at the cocktail hour. I have no idea on what dress I want and I'm not doing that until November, I'm not really a dress person and my mother isn't there to help so it's not as exciting as I imagine for others. As a designer I like maggie sottero, more specifically Adeline... but Idk.
Gosh they get moving so fast! How adorable! Time is flying by! 5 months already!
I look forward to seeing your bouquets. This thread in the original stages discussed a link where you could see the flowers they offer at the Riu, but it no longer works...curious how they are...I guess another question for them once I hear back from my 1st email.. I hear what you mean deciding between themes. My invites were boarding passes with starfish...now all my OTT stuff is turning into anchors and barely any starfish. What are your colors? Mine are navy and emerald green with some white and I figure maybe bright pink splashes (flowers).
I was going to ask who you booked for photographers! They look like a TOP NOTCH group - their photos look so AMAZING! Will you just pay the visitor fee for them? What is it like $200 a person for vendors? May I ask what package you are going to do? I do not have a big bridal party. it's my FI's 2nd wedding so he said he only wanted his son Jake (who will be 16 next year) to be his BM. This made it simple for me - I chose my Mom as my MOH. I probably wouldn't need them too much before ceremony, but...hmmmm...
Where did you find the cigar roller? Did you get any pricing? We were going to go into Playa del Carmen and buy some cigars there a few days before the wedding and have them at the cocktail hour, but maybe having someone there would be way cooler. I just ordered matchboxes and beverage napkins for the cocktail hour so I definitely want cigars (and beverages, too)! hahaha
Love love love Maggie Sottero - Adeline - GORGEOUS!!!! Keep us posted!
