Maybe a little panic attack

Recommended Posts

You can do this. I ave agree; dress! dress! dress!

 

After that, did you want to make invites or have them printed? How many are you sending?

 

The location is the biggest thing, at least it ws for me. You are good there

I assume "5 on teh beach" means at 5pm, not 5 people! but either way - you still have plenty of time - there are just a couple things you may want to get started on (invites, dress, etc.) - but again, no need to panic!

Welcome, and no worries you can get it all done. I agree with everyone else, the dress is the first priority followed by invitations. I went dress shopping this weekend and was glad I started because some places need a lot of lead time.

 

As for invitations, I found a place online that did my DW invites and they were reasonable and pretty fast. I can't find the link right now, but I'll look it up when I get home and post it then.

Wow!! First off it is amazing how helpful everyone is. I dont think I did my explinaiton justice. I will have a little over 30 people attending my wedding at the El Dorado. I have made reservations and sent out save the dates. I know I need to get my dress pronto, so this week I will get that done. I guess my first questions is the range of time I need to send out the invitations. I know I need at least 30 days to get a good head count for reservations for the wedding day. Also, what do I include in the invitation? I have looked at several but nothing really is standing out. I did a DIY save the date that went over great. I haven't even thought of doing my own invitation. Any suggestion would be lovely!!!

I'm glad your STDs went over well! Now, as for the real invitation. I know a lot of ladies are sending thiers out about 4 months in advance. That will allow you plenty of time for them to RSVP so you can do such projects as OOT bags if you'd like. So, that means that it's a good time to purchase invitations. From what I've read and what I've designed, there are a bunch of things you CAN include in an invite. First off, accomodations, travel agent information, wedding website information, welcome dinner info, RSVP to wedding and to AHR (if applicable) and a AHR card. Obviously, you don't need to include all of these things.

If you are going to make your own, there are many designs that are very simple for the "noncrafty" person, and then there are some more difficult ideas. It depends what kind of a look you are going for.

Let me know if you have any questions or need any suggestions

i would say send your invites out asap. especially if you are invluding rsvp's to be mailed back. i sent mine out in jan (sent early jus to remind those who had put off making reservations to get a move on it) with an rsvp deadling set in march. i just turned in my headcount to my WC. Some people don't get the concept of returning rsvp's, so sending thme out early will allow you to track down anyone who didn't send theirs and confirm if they are or aren't attending and get your headcount in on time.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
