May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

I would totally do the group rates thing but who knows if my friends want the lowest rooms or they want a suite...I am thinking of sending out an email blast explaining that they only need to give a deposit and don;t have to pay the rest until March! SO ANNOYING

I'm a bad May 2009 bride. I totally missed this thread.

 

Is anyone else deciding on things like flowers, cakes, centerpieces, etc. when they get to their destination? For some reason I'm not all that worried about it and figure I'll take care of it the week I get there. I know I want local flowers and I have an idea of what I want, but I would just prefer to wait.

 

I feel like I'm getting more laid back as the wedding gets closer. Is that weird?

 

Oh, and as for guests being lazy about booking, that's just how it is. It'll all work out though!

OMG! I feel like a total slacker right now! This thread has definitely made me think I need to do more! So far, all I've done is:

Picked resort, booked date

Wedding website complete

Sent out save the date magnets (July '0cool.gif

Picked my dress (ordering it tomorrow- yay!)

Booked photographer (Claudia Rodriguez)

DJ booked

Welcome party, ceremony, cocktail hour locations picked.

 

Right now, I'm thinking about color scheme and will be checking out BM dresses (online) with sis this weekend. Oh, and going to book our

 

I feel the same as Kristy, for some reason, I know it will all get done and I'm not worried, but, maybe I should be! :)

 

I'm planning on sending out invites first week in Jan. with RSVP by 2/1.

It is kind of annoying not to have a head count right now though. But, I don't want to send them out too early or during the holidays. We'll probably send out an email to everyone next month reminding them to book. So far we only have 14 (not including us).

You are getting married the same day as me! I tried to book Claudia but she was already booked with yours so we are using Erik!

Thanks, Case, after reading this i started to panic.

 

Blktz, yes, we are getting married the same day! I'm actually using Citali (from Claudia Rodriguez) because Claudia was booked. I really think they all do excellent work.

i'm pretty much doing the same ... i mean no one really remembers the cake unless it's REALLY different looking or super-delicious (which i never think wedding cake is). i'm not worried about it. and almost all flowers are pretty ... they're FLOWERS! all i care about is the general color (reds & oranges, and i know they can get those colors at my resort because i've seen plenty of BDW brides with them). also, no one i've invited has ever been to a destination wedding, so no one has any expectations, other than they probably expect it to be different from the norm. i don't think anyone would even blink if there weren't centerpieces. they'd probably just assume that's how it is in mexico!

My invitations from Wedding Paper Divas just shipped today! They should arrive the first week of October. It was so easy! I sent in the info, a day later they emailed a proof w/ suggestions (e.g. usage of & or and), I signed-off, and shipped the next day!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
