Hey MeganMarie!!

Congrats on setting your wedding date!

 

I will be getting married Dec 3rd 2009 at pp! You will just miss me! If it makes you feel better. I just sent out my invitations last week. I was getting stressed out about getting my invitations out quick enough so people could save money and get time off. Because I am completely ignorant of anything to do with weddings, I didn't know it takes typically 3-6 week wait for invitations. So after I had my meltdown (because getting the invites I wanted would take too long) I had a friend design a card and then went to a professional printer who printed them out on card paper. Took less than a week. I picked up the envelopes and addressed them by hand on while waiting for the invites to be finished.

They aren't exactly the quality I wanted and if I was huge on etiquette/classiness I wouldn't have gone that way. But they are decent and done!

I can't remember who mentioned sharing a photographer but it sounds like a great idea! Anyone getting married around Dec 3rd 2009? I still haven't set up a photographer yet but have found some I'm interested in.

Yes, photographers are very very pricey. But I say so worth it! Having lots of Pictures is very important to me, so if I could split the costs with someone that would be awesome. Hopefully I have that opportunity.

To Julie/Sara/Connie....I was wondering what kind of stuff they sell at the market on the resort. Was thinking of picking up a few things down there either to put in the OOT bags or as souvenirs for our guests. Should I just bring some trinkets down or do they have some cute stuff?

I've been to Holguin before and I know there aren't a lot of places to buy stuff off the resort.

Thanks for your input ladies!!

There is a market, its not every day though, I can't remember what day it is, but there is also little stores as well. To be honest I never really checked either out, so I don't know what they have or what the prices are. Sorry, hopefully one of the other girls can help you with this one.

Julie's right - there is an outdoor market close to the beer gardens (if you're like me, you'll figure out where the beer garden is right away LOL) - they have different vendors every day and I think it is closed on Sundays. They have some cute jewellery there - my mom bought me a cute bracelet for our legal day. I bought DH a little turtle that I'm going to make into a Christmas ornament (yay arts and crafts - some glue and a hook!) and we got a really cool map that looks like a pirate treasure map of Cuba that we have yet to mat and frame and hang (LOL).

Because the vendors change daily, it is a gamble. For example, my MOH really liked the bracelet that my mom bought me, and the last day we were there, he came back and I was able to buy her a similar one. I would say it is better to bring trinkets, etc. with you for your OOT bags, and if you happen to find cute things at the marketplace, just add them.

As for the shops, again they are by the beer gardens. I didn't go in them but I believe there is a liquor store there.

    • 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.
