Maybe this anxious feeling has to do with the fact that I've also been stuck at the St. John's Newfoundland airport for the past 10 hours due to snow and wind. All wedding stuff has been put on hold as I'm doing a cross-country medical residency interview tour. 7 interviews, 7 cities in 18 days makes for one crazy lady! I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to plan a wedding during my last year of medical school. Sorry for ranting.. just feeling a bit overwhelmed!
Wow girl! You are busy! I hope you got out of the airport. I can't believe you already have 85 people booked - that's amazing. We only have 15 people booked at this point.

Hang in there. I think the advantage of doing a destination wedding is that you can make as stressful or stress-less as you want. I'm sure everything is going to come together beautifully in the end.

How’s everyone’s planning coming along – we’re 4 months away! I feel so behind on the planning…need some reassurance that I’m on track. The site is booked, travel arrangements booked, have a dress, booked a photographer, have bought 2 out 10 things for the OOT bags, almost done with BM gift bags, BM dresses are picked (not bought) out, bought ceremony fans. Feel like there’s so much more to do!

Hey ladies, I am starting to feel like it is really getting close to game time and I need to be a little more organized about what I have to get done. I am getting married June 12th at Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta. So far I have sent out STD, hotel booked, site booked, bought my dress (love it!!). Have contacted some photographers but not made a decision yet. I just have to print the invites but they are about ready to go and the ribbon etc have already been done for them. Was thinking of sending them at the end of this month as poeple have been slow to book ~ I think a lot of people were waiting until after the holidays and have now gotten lazy. We have about 18 booked so far. Like the idea about the April 15th RSVP date. Here is the stuff I still need to do:[*]Get flower girl dresses[*]get grooms pants (already picked out shirt)[*]my shoes (any ideas where to find cute sandals?)[*]decide on and book welcome dinner/cocktail hour[*]MOH gift[*]book photographer[*]finish OOT bags (about 1/2 done but hard when I don't have final #'s)

Welcome letters etc.

 

AAHH! I better get moving here.

Who are you using for your photographer? Still have made a final decision on that yet. Finally registered today (Wasn't going to jut MOG really wanted us to...thought I better start out on a good foot and do it.). I need to start making a list so I can get a bit more organized with all of this.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
