My wedding is July 18th. I am eagerly awaiting the package information so that I can start making decisions on flowers and centerpieces and what not. I was wondering if anyone brought with them table runners and/or centerpiece decorations and whether this ended up being a hassle. I am also wondering how the photographer at the resort is. I haven't booked anyone else so I am hoping they are decent. I have read mixed reviews.
On an unrelated note I was wondering if any of you ladies made welcome bags for your guests and if so what kind of things did you bring to put in them. I want to make cute welcome bags with useful things but at the same time I am afraid I am going to be overloading my luggage. Any advice is welcomed.
Another question I had is whether anyone knows of something fun I could do with the ladies attending the wedding sort of like a "bachelorette day". My fiancé is taking men deep sea fishing for his bachelor day and I would like to do something special with the ladies. I didn't know if there was something fun locally to do for the day or even is the resort offers some sort of spa day package or something. Any info is appreciated.
Your date is coming up so close! You must be super excited and anxious!! So many good things to come!
I still have 7 months more to go..TO answer a few of your questions (although i realize I might be a bit too late!) - i am planning on bringing my own bows for the chairs (great deals on ebay), table runners (i should only have about 4-5 tables), some decorations (i got some beautiful large seashells i am planning on "scattering" around the centerpiece), and welcome bags. For welcome bags i will be getting mostly medicine related items (pepto, tylenol, first aid kit, sanitizer), the detailed plan for the week (dinner for ladies/men the night before, detailed schedule of the big day, etc), a sudoku pack, and a crossword that i will make up myself (titled "How well do you know the bride and groom?")
I would love to hear about all of your decisions about the decorations that you are bringing. Have you made your welcome bags yet? Also, would you pleeeassseee send me a copy of the package? (So i can get a headstart on the flowers, etc - firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, did you figure out what to do with your ladies the day before? And how big of a party will you have, and the location of your reception? How far in advance did you book the trip, and was it through AppleVacations?
I know i just bombarded you with questions, but i am at 7 months prior mark, and getting a bit nervous. Any bit of insight will help! Thank you!!! And i hope your day will turn out wonderful!!!
