March 2009 Brides
Posted 05 January 2009 - 04:42 PM
I am late to the game here! My date is March 6th Dreams Cancun. Wedding invites are going out this week. Dress is ordered and should arrive ~ Feb 11th. I haven't started the OOT bags, or purchased attendant gifts, I've contacted the photographer and the DJ for the wedding but am not going to stress out about the poor correspondence until we get there. Waiting to get a headcount before I start to think about everything, but in retrospect, that might be a poor decision. Does anyone have a copy of a 'welcome letter'?
PS....I'm stalling on the headcount because we could have anywhere from 30-120 people...we invited 150.
Thanks and I'm glad I found this forum!

Welcome! I think the standard rule of thumb for DW's i that 20-50% of your guests will come, so it will be hard to sort everything out with such a different in numbers!
Can you call people to follow up? For the welcome letter are you looking for something to send to your geusts before the event - or something to provide to the guests when they get to the resort?

Our wedding is March 11 at the Riu Ocho Rios. We only have about 25 guests.
Wow, you all seem much more ready than I am!!! I still have to buy nearly everything for the OOT bags, get my dress altered (its been hanging in my closet since LAST MARCH, and still needs to be taken in a size and have the train removed...) and the guys in the wedding party don't have their clothes. I also don't have music, flowers, hair or shoes, or attendants gifts sorted out, and neither of us have wedding bands or passports...Maybe I should have listed what I DO have done- my dress, and invitations. Oh my.
Carrie- seems like we have our work cut out for us

I'm going for my first fitting tomorrow.....it's starting to feel real.
Real Scary! And so excited. I actually got butterflies the other day thinking about marrying my FI.
I still have to finalise the reception details with the resort and then have to finalise all decorations. I'm creating a lot of the paper pieces for the wedding, so lots of design work to do!

I want to get the OOT bags done by the end of February which means I need to to order by the end of January. Any thoughts? thanks!
