Beachbride08's Planning Thread!!!

Recommended Posts

I first want to say how grateful I am that I found this site. Although, I found it early on in our planning process, I must say I wish I would have found it a little sooner. I went back and forth about changing our wedding location and resort after finding so many new places on here, especially since I was the only Iberostar bride for awhile! I have enjoyed looking at everyone’s planning and wedding review threads to get ideas on DIY projects. If it weren’t for you creative ladies I would have spent a lot more money and would not have had as many of the little touches that I will now have. It is also so great to have a group of people that understand the ups and downs of planning a destination wedding. Although, planning weddings in general is a stressful process there are different obstacles that destination brides face. Thank you for letting me vent, and for sharing your own stories. I would especially like to thank all the ladies in the November Brides thread as you have been my go to group these past 6 months. You know who are, and you guys are AWESOME!!! I can’t believe it is finally my time to post my planning thread.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
