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 :)

Hey Lori- Welcome to the best forum ever :) Thanks for sharing your pics! I was wondering how far of a drive is it from the resort to Xel-Ha?

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 think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
    • Wow.... it looks like I need to add some things to my bags ..#goals Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
