    Thanks! Glad you like them.

    I would definitely have to admit that I learned from this experience that, imo, making them yourself is not worth the time and effort. If I had to do it again, I would buy the invitations - no doubt!

    All the same, I do love them.

      Hi ladies!
      I found this idea for our wedding, but wasn't sure if it would work because I heard it's pretty windy in Riviera Maya in December.... what do you think?

        Welcome and congratulations on the upcoming wedding and baby girl!!!
        So glad to have found this thread!

        We're getting married on the 10th at Grand Riviera Princess. On the beach :) We still haven't decided if we'll do the beach reception or just go to one of the a la carte restaurants...

        Anyone else planning their wedding at this resort? I didn't notice anyone when reading through...

        I feel like I'm so behind compared to most of you!

        1. My dress is ordered...Should be here in a couple of weeks!
        2. Invitations were sent out last week - sent early because we didn't do save the dates
        3. AHR venue is booked for July 17 2010 -Still need to book caterer though
        4. TA is taking care of all our bookings
        5. We had our legal ceremony on May 8. We did it early because I still have to apply for my passport and we figured we might as well do it now so that I don't have to reapply/pay again right after. We're also expecting a baby girl on June 15 and it was hard for his parents that we weren't married..So now they're happy we're married before baby is born!!!
        6. We have our guest book. We ordered from the guest book store. Welcome to the Guestbook Store! Wedding Guestbooks! we'll place these on the reception tables with colourful markers.


        Still seems like I have so much to do! I know what I want for flowers, and plan on doing them myself. We're waiting to hear about what the resort offers for decorations/center pieces. Although, it won't be anything too fancy. And I plan on starting to look for a dress for our daughter soon after she's born..Would love to start now, but I spend most days with my feet up!!


        Happy Planning Everyone!!! :)

                She has been really great and gets back super fast to both phone calls and emails! If anything she is MORE on top and into the planning of the wedding travel than I am! She calls me more than I call her..I love it! She is great at keeping me updated on who has booked and what peoples travel dates are etc... by sending me excel sheets with all of the info a few times a week. I reccomend her--her info is:
                Hazel Boone
                410-624-2168
                e-mail: hazelboone@somedayvacations.com

                I met her at a Someday Vacations booth at a bridal show and she was just the sweetest lady, I knew she would be great to work with (and she has been). Just tell her I told you to call her and that you are also planning a wedding, she specializes in group travel. Good Luck!!!
                WE WERE SO BLESSED TO HAVE A PERFECT WEDDING WEEKEND FROM START TO FINISH!

                  yeah, and Dec 09 thread! Glad I found this! We are getting married Dec 4th at Dreams PV.
                  I have completed the following:
                  1) booked our flights/hotel for wedding & honeymoon in Belize
                  2) sent out save the dates
                  3) bought dress
                  4) finished wedding website
                  5) started collecting things for OOT
                  6) decided on color pallete

                  But I am concerned that I see tons of brides who have 25 ppl booked or more by now, and I only have about 6-8 ppl booked. I sent out STD to about 160 ppl.
                  I'm a little worried, but is there anything I can really do? I can't make people pay their deposits.
                  Any recommendations Dec Brides!?

                    As I'm typing this, I got a text message from my aunt and cousin that they just booked their trip! See, I guess everything will work out.... I just thought that was ironic!

                      I dont think there is much you can do. People book when they want to book and feel comfortable booking. The only reason we had alot of people book right away is b/c we had a two week window in which people had to put down a deposit to hold the rate we got.

                      You are getting married on my parents anniversary :)
