I need to know my guest count so i can know the final bill of the wedding at least 2 months before and i also noted that no bookings will be accepted after March 14. And if anyone has any problems with these requirements than they don't need to come! HA! Is that too mean?
Not too mean at all.... If I had my time back I think I would do something similar. We are doing RSVP via our website. Some of our guests are using it, and then there are others who have not replied, but have booked the trip with our TA. So I would highly recommend staying in touch with your TA to get numbers that match your RSVP count. We are asking for RSVP by November, and getting married January, so I hope that works.

O i for sure will be in touch with my TA and will be telling her that the cut off date for booking is March 14 and anyone who tries to book after that she will kindly have to tell them she can't do it as the hotel had to have final guest list by end of day March 14 (even though they truly don't need it until a month before, but i want to know how many people are going so i know how much my wedding is going to be costing for sure). My wedding my rules. lol

I sent out my save the dates back in March. Only because i know a few of my friends need some extra time to save. so i wanted to give them a heads up. I have spoken to a local travel agent here in my town, and she has given me some prices. but when i look online on expedia ect, they arent showing july 2011 yet.

how are your other plans coming along?
I have my wedding packaged paid for, the location at the resort picked out, and my private dinner as well.
currently i am trying to figure out when i should send the invites out. I am think in Jan or feb, that way they can have their deposits in for april.....

have a great day!
That's funny Ashley - we are getting married on our anniversary as well and it will be lucky number 7 - not sure how lucky that is lol

I was thinking of doing a Remember or Thank you for booking in Christmas cards this holiday season.
i got engaged june 12th, skipped the save the dates and sent out invitations on July 7th for both the DW and AHR with detail sheets for both and the rsvp had both events and asked for a reply to either or both by September 15th as that is the date the deposit needs to be paid for the DW to guarantee space and pricing. Call me crazy but i didn't want to do STD, Invites for DW with RSVPS then have to do it all over again. i know it's a little early for people to commit to the AHR on July 2nd but i figured either you're coming or your not lol Most people take a vacation every year so those people would just make that theirs and the other who normally don't just have to decide if it's in their budget and if not then attend the AHR. Oh and i am only doing thank you cards once after the AHR. Going to also give those coming to the DW a pre travel brochure and a welcome letter in their room. That's alot of correspondence!!! But i guess people need details right?

Our wedding is not until Nov. 2011, but we're sending out our STD tonight, lol!  I know it sounds crazy, but we rather give everyone plenty of time to save $ and make travel arrangements. The STD include our wedding website, which will have info on the resort and TA information. I'm also allowing guests to RSVP on the website, which hopefully will be helpful. However, I'm concerned for my guests that don't have access to the web (for example: our grandparents, etc.). Not sure how to go about providing them with all the info that's on my website.  Any suggestions?

We asked our guests to RSVP online as well...so far it's been hit or miss. Hopefully it will start picking up soon. We had included RSVP cards in our formal invite, which were enclosed in an envelope. We figured if they could not go online they could always mail it back. Our address was on the outside envelope. And perhaps if you specially know a few that would prefer to mail them, just include your address on the envelope and a stamp. Then it makes it easy for them.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
