those of you looking for flowers, definitely let us know how the samples turn out! who in the world would have thought that finding artificial stargazers would be so difficult?! i found my other two flowers (white stargazers and pink/white orchids... for BM and bouts) no problem! i'm very tempted to send my bouquet inspiration pic to one of these places and just let them do it for me, rather than trying to buy my own and having my mom's friend do them.
andddd... as i was typing this message someone from the client that i'm working on came up and told me my car got broken into... they stole my gps, awesome. thankfully i don't have anything else in my car and my future stepdaughter's booster seat wasn't in there so i don't have to worry about glass on that!!
sorry for the random note.. had to share that with someone! going home now to drink a beer and call my insurance!

I am an April 2010 bride as well! Our wedding date is April 12th.. at the Grand Palladium in Punta Cana.
We decided to have the wedding there and, because we know that several friends will not be able to attend, we are also having a reception in June (probably here at our home). We will most likely rent a tent and have a huge party in the backyard (we have an acre of land). Because we had to get the message out there quickly (according to our travel agent), I made my own invitations (with the help of my sister and niece... and fiance who helped cut our names out for the front!) and gave all the actual reservation information in the invite. Then on the RSVP, I had them choose the Dominican ceremony or the June Celebration. I mailed the invites last week and have 3 replies already. Also know of quite a few guests who are definitely going to Dominican but have not sent their RSVP back.
I think we will only book the tent for the party in March or April and then send a little party reminder.
If any of you need ideas for invites, or would like help with invites, let me know. We have received only fantastic comments... the colors were turquoise, black and white.
Are any of you ladies doing OOT bags?

tara, i feel the same way sometimes. it's good because you can think of little details that you want to add and know that anything else you do is extra! the downside is that you see stuff on here that other people are doing and freak out feeling like you need to do that! i'm sure other things will come to you, but be glad for now that you're not stressed and rushed!!

it sounds like you're well on your way already!! you should post pictures of your invites so we can see them... sounds like they are beautiful!
i think a lot of the girls on here (myself included) are doing OOT bags. there are SO many good threads on here to help you decide if you want to do them and what the best things to include are! we are including advil, pepto, immodium, pool floats, towels, an information booklet for the guests (we are handing them out about a month before), a deck of cards, snacks, and i know some other things that i'm forgetting!

Have any of you set a web page for your guest to check in for all the resort info and what not? I did since I will not be working with a travel agent (they wouldn't give me a good quote, and I know the price my guest can get through the internet)

She hasn't sent it yet (though i wish she would!), but the price is right - it's approx $500 for the entire wedding party's flowers. 3 BMs and 3 GMs, both sets of parents' flowers.
