Hi,

There will be about 40 people at our wedding, 30 staying on resort and 10 odd resort.  I was planning on doing a very simple program so that the people staying off resort would know where to go for the dinner, etc since we are just planning to eat at the Italian Buffet and then renting out the Disco.

 

Another Q: Because we are not have a formal dinner and more of just a party reception after, we are struggling with where to have our guest book.  We are also not asking for presentation but think people may still want to give us a card.  Is anyone doing a basket of some sort.  ANy cool ideas for a destination guest book?

 

Also, we are planning on doing a shot of tequila with everyone instead of a champagne toast and then people can keep the shot glass.  Anyone know a good supplier for stuff like that (I am from Canada)?

 

Thanks Ladies

Lindsay

We are using Octavio Montes for photography. 3 hours of shooting and 90 prints, and a CD with all the pictures for $650. Not nervous about whether he can go since the wedding coordinator confirmed it was fine, and because hes done several weddings there.

As for the dinner, I am doing place cards, you just give them to Maria at your meeting before hand with a seating chart and she will put them where they need to go.

For my guest book, I'm buying seashells (online they are about $50 for a ton of them) and they are bit and soft on top so people can sign them, I'm going to use them in a picture frame to put around a picutre of my FH and I.

We had a mock wedding certificate made by up, that we signed along with our witnesses and then had everyone attending the wedding sign on the witness area.

 

That way everyone signed but it was just a one page sheet.  Our plan is to frame it with our wedding photo.

 

I can send a picture if you would like, just let me know.

We're using Octavio as well, the same package and everything.  After reading the reviews I just couldn't justify using the resort photographer, and really you can't beat Octavio's prices.

Cute ideas ladies! I like the idea of the seashells and mock wedding certificate for a guestbook!

 

Yes, Maria said outside photographers are not forbidden or any big deal, just have to pay the $77 day pass.

 

Any of you ladies getting married soon? I heard the main pool  is closing in the next two weeks- kind of a bummer!

I am not sure what is going on with the main pool. Sandos is my friend on facebook and alot of people were commenting about it closing in the next few weeks so wondering if any of you knew what was going on. Wasn't sure if it was weather or remodeling..... Has anyone been during the winter time and the main pool was closed?

    • 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.
