We sent out our STD's in July via email. We really wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible so they would have time to save.

Haven't found the bridesmaid dresses yet, and I might wait until closer to spring when all the spring/summer stuff comes out again.



Looks like I'm JUST going to miss you! We're staying at the Riu Palace too but we arrive on Oct 19 09.

I would say your next steps are browsing through centerpieces and trying on wedding gowns!

I actually already have my dress : )

Hello all,

 

This is a fantastic post to which I am adding.

 

My bf and I are still at square one. We have gone ring shopping, but he has yet to drop the question. (On a side note: I LOVE the Jewelrymart/Giftcenter in San Francisco.) I know he's waiting for the right moment.

 

Despite not having the ring, we're still moving forward with our plans. We have narrowed down to a September/October 2009 time frame.

 

In February 2008, we spent a week in Cancun and fell in love with the area. We returned to Mexico earlier this month. This time, however, we stayed in Playa del Carmen. We searched some sites out, but we're still doing our homework.

 

As for the October rain, it was really hit or miss. We wore shorts/summer clothes day and night. If it rained, the longest it lasted was maybe 15 minutes. It wasn't enough to deter me away from my quest to find a location! Plus, we both returned home with fantastic tans!

 

As for prepping for the wedding, here's what we've done so far:

set up the Adobe InDesign files for save the dates

set up the Adobe InDesign files for invitations, rsvp, etc.

set the guest list

alerted our guest list of the upcoming plans

 

Things we have yet to do:

1. Get engaged!

2. Settle on a location and set a date...

I'm a November 6, 2009 bride. That counts right?

 

So far we have picked the date, reserved the date with the hotel, started on our website, ordering save the dates, and I have picked a dress.

 

Looks like I am on track... My hotel doesn't have rates for November 2009 yet, except through my TA. I want to see the rates from other places before I book and send out save the dates so that I know what's a good deal.

Hello October brides smile03.gif

 

I am getting married Oct 10, 2009 at Dreams Los Cabos. So far we have our room block from (Tammy Host), and made our website. Right now we are deciding on colors, and the photographer which is really hard!! Not sure if we are going to do invitations cause we want to keep this as small as possible, plus everyone has gotten the information from the website. If we do them it won't be many. I haven't been planning like I should..I need to hop to it!

The dresses I like were part of a trunk sale so my daughters and I went back out Sunday and tried the dresses back on and took good pictures.
Oh, that's funny about your mom - hope you weren't too mad at her.
Still waiting to see those dress pics!

Hi girls!

 

10 months to go! Just wanted to check in and see how everyone's planning is going! I've got all the major things done (I think). Trip is booked, STDs are out, website is up, dress is purchased, photographer booked, DJ booked. Invitations are next, although I'm still undecided on when they should go out. Don't want to send them too soon or too late, you know? Also working on finding a suit for FI and a dress for my one bridesmaid.

 

How is planning going for the rest of you girls?

Hello fellow Oct/Nov 2009 Brides! What a great post!

 

I am getting married October 27/09 at the Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana.

 

I have the trip booked (deposits down), a block of 15 rooms set aside for guests, DIY travel brochure invite sent, wedding website up and running and the photographer booked!

 

I am in the process of looking at at home reception venues for November of 2009.

 

No dress yet...but I soon as I find "the one", it will be one last thing to do!

 

I'm not sure what else I should be doing at this point? I feel like I SHOULD be planning other things...any advicehuh.gif

I feel like I should be planning something too, but there really isn't anything I can plan until the date gets closer. At least I don't think there is? Some stuff will depend on how many people end up coming. So far no one has booked, but it's still really early!

 

 

cdc0427, I think you had mentioned before that you felt like October wasn't all that far away, right? May 2010 will definitely give you some extra time to enjoy planning without so much of the timeline stress!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
