How many of you are doing a site visit?

Recommended Posts

Leigh I am also going out to CA to visit everything, but I could do without it, but I will be out that way and I have spring break so I figured why not get out of the cold weather and head to Napa.

I was really happy we did a site visit!!! Both of our parents were not crazy about a wedding in Mexico and so we took TONS of pictures when we were down there. It was great to do the food tasting and meet the coordinator and other vendors too. We are having a big wedding though (~100 people) so I think it was really necessary for us. We got 3 nights free at the hotel and just coordinated it around a vacation (new years).

 

I highly recommend it, but if you can't make it happen, I wouldn't worry about it b/c you can get all the info you need from this site and over email with your vendors and coordinator.

I did 2 site visits, the first when we weren't even sure that we were getting married in Cancun and the 2nd a month ago 'cause we needed to solve the religious ceremony issue.. for me both site visits were totally necessary, but as other say, you can go without one if you do your research online.. it's just easier being there and meeting the vendors and stuff..

I am meeting with my wedding cordinator and a few vendors. I am getting married June 2008 but want to get on track with getting things started..

We are going in June just to check out the possibilities. We were already planning a vacation so this is just something else to do while we're down there. Plus I really want to see the hotels in person. My TA is setting up appointments for us while we are down there in PDC. Very excited!

We're not doing one, just winging it. I'm not really that concerned with anything, maybe if I was having 100 people I'd be worried, but otherwise, I'm just gonna go with the flow, I'll make my final decisions when I get there.

 

And yes, I think the free site visit is if you have a room block.

No worries Ann the location is solid!

We're doing a site visit 2 days before the wedding since it's included. It would be too late to change plans by then if we don't like it, but we've been there before.

Leigh, have you been to Cancun before? It is nice to get a feel for both the city & the wedding location, but not at all necessary with all the online resources out there. If time/money permits you can take a romantic scouting trip, if not your wedding will still be fabulous!

I am not doing a site visit. I am going by what I remember when I was there two years ago. I am hoping that everything will look the same. I am not sure how much can change.

That would be really cool to have it be a surprise . . . . if you can arrange it I would recommend that you go out that morning to spend the day there. I think once you get there that night you'll have wished you had more time there. (my avatar is Caletas by day) It is truly magical, plus you don't have to worry about your hairstyle being blown away on the boat over, LOL! Either way we are lucky to not have to worry about the location, there's plenty of other bridal worries!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
