    I'm worried about that too so I did a weather search for the Riviera Maya in June - our ceremony is at 4pm and I'm still afraid it will be too hot!

      Ours is also at 4pm. I figure worse case scenario we will be glowing in our pictures!! lol

      So I am working on our Boarding Pass invites, and gosh does it ever take a while!!
      I have done a few test runs on them so far because the alignement. There is information on front and back, so they have to align up perfectly so that when you cut them, you don't chop off the back.

      Now I am just waiting to get the French version from my mom so that I can start printingall 100 of them, cutting, stamping, etc...

      So much work, but oh so worth it in the end (hopefully everyone will love them).
      We priced them at a local wedding invitation store, and they wanted to charge us 800$ considering we have bough about 100$ of supplies, we saved ALOT of $$$. :smile:

        I can't believe that our big day is less than 6 months from now!! Our wedding date is June 11 which will be our 7 year anniversary! I secretly can't wait for the holidays to be over so I can get planning.

        So far I have..
        STD sent out (about 35 people books)-still debating over sending out "real" invitations
        Bought and received my dress
        Found a pattern for my BM's dresses (we are getting them made)-looking for fabric
        Bought OOT bags (after season sale at Old Navy-Love them!!)
        Started collecting some stuff for OOT bags
        Bought starfish charms off ebay (for the fans maybe?)
        Found hair style for the big day

        Upcoming on the list...
        Decide on photographer-resorts or bringing one in?
        Order fans
        Starting looking at mens outfits (I found a place I think I am going to order them from)
        Decide on newsletter or flyer to send out to those coming

              Those of you who are doing OOT bags, are you and your loved ones bringing down all of the stuff OR are you shipping it early? I am thinking about shipping some stuff ahead of time. I am starting to feel really stressed internally!

                Hi everyone,

                I am a June 11th bride. Congrats to all who have done so much. I basicly have found and booked a resort. I am terrible at this. So I am glad for all your help. So forgive my stupid questions.
                Jennifer I love your monogram, where did you get it? Now for the stupid questions- what all do you use it for? How do you transfer to OOT bags?

                Any input on photographers?

                I love idea of boarding pass invites but would never be able to make, any place that does at reasonable price? I saw one that used it as itentary for oot bag- cute idea

                I just am feeling so overwhelmed and feel like I will never be able to pull this off. I don't have very much time. You guys are doing a great job!!

                  Hi Gail,

                  I am getting married at the Iberostar Del Mar on June 25th. I got my monogram from Sarah Sproulle at Sproullie Designs. I am going to use them for the OOT bags. I ordered a natural canvas bag. I also bought transfer paper so that I can print them on the transfer paper and iron them onto the bags.

                  I am also using Claudia Rodriguez Photography. The resort charges a $300 fee for using an outside vendor.

                  The wedding is less than six months away! I am starting to stress out!

                    Where are you ladies looking at for the grooms attire? FI would like to wear linen pants and like a Cuban shirt. I have bookmarked a few pages and he says that he is not quite sure he likes these places. I have been trying to make him decide on something. I have a feeling that he is going to wait until May to pick something out!

                      I am also looking into guys attire right now. My FI has chosen 7, yes I said 7 groomsmen. Funny because I am only having 3 bridesmaids.

                      Anyway, here are a few place I have bookmarked. I think I have decided on linen pants, and long sleeve shirts with the sleeves rolled at the bottom. I am having a hard time deciding on color choices. I think the shirts I like are called Embroidered Guayabera

                      Men's - Casual Shirts - Button-front - TropiCool® Short Sleeve Guayabera Shirt

                      Beach Wedding Attire & Dresses, Linen Wedding Pants, Shirts, Guayabera, Hawaiian, Havana, and Linen Suits

                      Chocolate Linen Amalfi Shirt (long-sleeve) - Island Importer

                      Guayabera shirts, guayabera, guayaberas, guayabera shirt, tropical shirts, mexican shirts

                      If you have any other links let me know.
