    Hey Jess and Faithers! That's exactly what I was thinking (the time off thing), we'll see. We have some big football fans, so I'm hoping they have satellite TV at the resort - I wonder how I would check on that? That's a good idea about coming in Friday, I didn't think of that as an option for those who want to do T-giving at home. THanks!

      hmm yeah I don't know - I am sure all Dreams Resorts work the same so let me know what you find out :) - I'm guessing they will have the games though.

        Hey guys,

        Devastating news this weekend that our hotel (Azul Fives) is postponing their opening from this month to November 2009! My FI and I are waiting to talk to our TA to discuss our options (I know there are other Azul brides on this thread too), but I'm terribly concerned. Our "plan B" will have to be another Karisma hotel if we decide to stick with the Fives - but we're limited by our wedding size and the fact we have my FI's niece and nephew (10 and 2 yrs of age) that will be traveling with his sister and brother-in-law. As I look for alternative resorts, either they are adults-only, don't accommodate a wedding our size with private reception (75-100 guests) or just don't have the "look" that I have envisioned (now that I got stuck on the Azul Fives). Anyway, I'm panicking and my FI is trying to calm me down!

        The good news is that I bought my dress today - so now for the place to wear it.

        I know November is far away, but I don't know if I can go another 8 months unsure of where we'll be married!

        UGH!

                Hey ladies, I am also a November 2009 bride. I am getting married at the Grand Riviera Princess in Mayan Riviera. Super excited.

                Beachbride- great suggestion with the thread. I don't as much planned as you do. I have confirmed my resort, day, time, and have 2 confirmed reservations.

                My invitations were a message in a bottle theme and I just finished them. Only deliver left. My website is also done, and currently looking into a photographer. Any recommendations on photographer?


                My FI and I decided not to have a bridal party.....we just can't choose. There are too many close friends and family.

                What is an OOT bag (out of towner??)

                HOw are you guys going to coordinate our day? Are you thinking to take pictures before or after ceremony? Any thoughts of how long we should plan for pictures before the reception?

                Any ideas ladies?

                Thanks

                  Hello Ladies,

                  My name is Evelyn and I am getting married November 14, 2009.

                  You are all way ahead of me. So far I have ordered the Save the date cards, set up my wedding website, sent an email to all about the wedding, booked the date with the resort, asked my BM's, GM's and MOH (all of which accepted!! Woo Hoo).

                  I am now in the process of making my brochures, looking at dresses and getting ideas for wedding favors and decor items.

                  Great Thread BTW!!

                  We are all getting there!!

                      I agree Erika...some days I feel way ahead of the game, some days I feel dazed & confused! This week has been exciting for me as we're now up to 28 confirmed guests, with lots more we haven't heard from!

                      Welcome Koolatta & Parissa! Now that youare confirmed, you'll find things falling into place...this forum is a godsend and you'll find it is the most amazing help with ideas and organization!

                      Love all you ladies! Here's to a fab November 2009!
