April 2009 Brides Check In!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made or ordered their invitations yet?

 

We have an appointment after work tomorrow to look at some designs, I'm so excited to pick something, I really hope her prices are reasonable.

 

Curious to see where everyone else is with this process. I hope to have exciting news to share about them tomorrow!

So far I have -

 

Bought my dress

Bought my veil and garter

Booked the resort and airfare, and organised a group deal.

Sent STDs with all the trip info (really more of an invite)

 

Yep, I really haven't done much.

OMG you are all way ahead of me!!

 

We finally got confirmation from my little sister (the MOH) as to when she can escape from med school for the wedding ... so now the work begins!!

 

So what do I have done ...

- I have my dress

- we know where

- we now know when

- we know who we're inviting

- we have enough aeroplan points to get us there and back for cheap

- we have picked out the rings

 

So lots of planning has been done, now we can implement it all!

 

D,

Ok, so I think I may be the most behind April bride there is!

 

Our wedding date is April 11, 2009. Here is what I've done so far:

 

1. Made a deposit with the location

2. Verbally told family/friends and bridal party

3. Ordered and received STD's

 

Yeah... so I've got a loooooong way to go. Feel free to poke fun at me... ;-)

Awww you're doing fine, plenty of time. You should start dress shopping soon though. If you don't buy off the rack, it can take 5-6 months to come in.

Hi Ladies!

 

Just working on making our invitations, I used the boarding pass idea and found a great free template at Aylee bits » DIY: Boarding Pass Invitation / Save The Date

 

They worked out perfectly, and for 25 invites I spent a total of $25 including envelopes, the cutting tool and the perforator tool. And, got to have some fun with it!! :-)

 

Here's a picture of how they turned out, and some pics of my dress ...

 

Take it easy,

D.

Great job!!!!

 

My FI dad passed away almost 4 weeks ago today so I feel like we are at a standstill.

I've actually picked bridesmaids dresses and changed my mind on my dress this past week (he doesn't know any of this) but as far as anything else... nothing.

 

I've even asked him if he wants to postpone the wedding. He says no but at the same time I don't think he's ready to start talking "wedding" againhuh.gif

I did get a few more things done on my list... Our save the dates are sent, created a wedding logo, and narrowed down my dress options. I may post the finalists once I have narrowed it down to just 2.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
