My date is quickly approaching!!! Friday May 20th @ 5:00 p.m. We are arriving at the resort on May 17th.
I have yet to have a phone conversation with Yamina, but I plan to give her a call in the next few weeks to confirm everything up. Our only communication thus far has been via email, but I've gotten a lot of information from her, so not speaking to her on the phone hasn't been a big issue for me.
So far, we have 18 guest booked and I think that's how it'll remain. I have 2 BM's and 1 MOH and my fiance has 2 GM and 1 BM
I go for my final dress fitting today!
2 down, 1 to go on my bridal party dress fittings! Hopefully we'll all have our dresses in hand by next week!
The guys ordered really nice linen suits from J Crew. They look amazing and are really appropriate for a destination wedding. We're still waiting on a few of their pieces to come in.
I'm going shopping together for a wedding dress garment bag. I really don't want to pack my dress into a carry on suitcase, so hopefully I won't run into an issue with just carrying it on in the garment bag. Hopefully they can hang it in the captains closet! *crossing fingers*
Bridal party Shoes-check!
Grooms party shoes-NO check. Ugh (they're thinking about wearing flip flops.
I'll be doing my own hair and make-up (I think I'm pretty good at it)
I hope to get fresh flowers for my hair and for my bridal parties hair...if not, I have some flowers that I ordered on hand.
Not sure about the menu yet. Yamina sent me the menu and told me to choose my selections, but hopefully we'll be able to have a tasting before we have to make our final decision.
We are bringing our own music for the ceremony and renting the sound system from the resort. $500 seems pretty steep to rent the equip, but we're not left with much of a choice.
DEL SOL is my photographer and I AM SOOOOOOO HAPPY about our choice!!! I know our photo's will come out AMAZING!!!!! Sol is our main photographer and we'll have oen additional.
We arranged shuttle service through Cancun Transfers and got a REALLY good rate round trip for our group!!!
Most of the guest arrive on Thursday 5/19 with a few people coming in on Tuesday and Wednesday to extend their vacation.
We are having a welcoming dinner on Thursday evening! Really excited about that!
I will be arranging massages and mani/pedi appointments for the morning of the wedding for my bridal party.
My best friend is singing at the ceremony which I know will have me extremely choked up.
My Bridal shower is also coming up on May 1st!!! Yippee!!!
That's all for now folks!! The countdown is ON!!!!
