December 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Wow ladies! you are getting tons done! I am getting frustrated, we still don't have our rates from Transat, so I feel like alot of things are on hold since we can't make invites, therefore no rsvps yet, therefore we don't know for sure how many ppl are going, so no favors yet, and it goes on and on sad.gif

But on the bright side my dress is in :)

BTW Autjo, just curious, what are 'un-bridesmaids'?

un-bridesmaid would be an unofficial bridesmaid.. So if someone doesnt want to have a wedding party but want to do something for your close friends who in other circumstances (bigger wedding, at home wedding etc) would have been bridesmaids, they would have 'unofficial bridesmaids'. make sense?

 

we sent out save the dates before we had our hotel rates etc b/c we knew the week and the place we would be getting married. we wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible so we sent them out before we got rates.

Happy Monday girls! We're nearing the 5 month countdown... so far away, yet so close bunny_4.gif

 

Thanks for explaining un-bridesmaids Nadine :)

 

We sent our save the dates before we had rates too. It gives people time to save and plan.

 

I got a bunch of stuff started this weekend and feel like things are actually coming together!!

1. Sent un-bridesmaid stuff and everyone got them and accepted - yea!

2. Started working on cake topper - making a monogram, not sure on how it will turn out.

3. Printed invites and working on assembly.

4. Got OTC maracas and trying to figure out how to decorate them

5. Finished Tears of Joy packets:

Still need to find FI and brothers in the wedding shirts. We are having a really hard time finding orange linen shirts that we both like (imagine that). Anyone heard of islandimporter.com? There are a couple of posts about them on BDW but they are older. I just ordered fabric samples from them and really like the guys shirts on their site. Guess we'll wait an see.

I have heard of island importers but have never ordered from there before. I think they are good though?

 

ugh, so your sending out invites? Is it bad if we don'thuh.gif I just feel like I could use that money for something else since people already accepted/booked if they are coming.

OMG. Don't get me started on invites. My mom wanted me to send out Save the Dates only to people who had already said they would go to Mexico. Then send out invites to those same people. Then send out invites to a different list of people for the AHR that she is making me have. And then send out announcements to anyone else she thought was going to have their feelings hurt for not getting an invitation.

 

I wanted to tell her to stfu.gif

 

So instead of making thigs worse with her, I am trying to compromise. I am sending out 1 invite that includes the Puerto Vallarta wedding and the AHR. The invite has 2 RSVP cards so people aren't confused. And I am sending them to everyone that is on any of my mom's lists. At last count it was 170 invites and 300 people! But I have asked her to trim it down. In reality, I anticipate 50 people in Mexico and 150 at the AHR.

 

I've actually enjoyed making the invites because FI has helped and really shown me a different side of himself.

 

For most people, I think you need to send a "formal" invite even if you have already sent Save the Dates. But, by "formal" it could be as simple as an email, e-vite, postcard style, or even those super easy print at home kits from the office supply store.

hmm ok thanks for the info.

 

Well at least you have enjoyed making them and FI has been included and up for helping!! Thats cute :)

 

That is a whole whack of invites your sending out though, wow. You have alot of patience. We are not doing an AHR so that part is avoided for us as well!

Hi Girls,

 

I had my invitations made by someone on Etsy---we thought about making our own but it would be time consuming so we had to weigh the cost/time scales. we should be getting our invitations this week! I hope they turn out okay.

    • 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?
