I'll start us off :)

 

Name: Mandy

FI Name: Chad

Wedding Destination: Sullivan's Island (Charleston,) SC

What made you choose this destination? I was able to reserve a beach front venue through my work for free! Plus a beach wedding sounded perfect for us since FH family would have to travel anyway

Wedding Date: July 17, 2010

What made you choose this date? We chose 6/5/10 at first for our 2 year dating anniversary date, but we weren't able to reserve the venue for that date, so we chose the next available based on the tide charts :P

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Canteloupe, Green Apple, and Nectarine (medium orange, medium apple green, and medium reddish orange)

What is something unique about your wedding? we're doing everything ourselves with (free :P) help from friends and family

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: I'm happy to be a part of this community and look forward to sharing ideas and learning from all of you.

Jenn & Andrew

July 18-24

Destination is TBD.

 

I've been engaged for a year now and finally decided on a date! We have a few teachers that are close to us so timing was tough. I wasnt keen on travelling in July however there are worse things to sweat over! I'm having a hard time deciding on the location.

 

TA's are also pushing back on me deciding with pricing so far out. Is anyone else finding it hard to decide without know what $$ are for July 2010?

Whee! I was just wondering the other day whether we July brides had our own thread. Thanks Mandy!

 

Name: Ashley

FI Name: Anthony

Wedding Destination: Captiva Island, FL

What made you choose this destination? Anything is better than Indiana wink.gif Nah, I just really love the beach! We visited 9 (9!) resorts in southern Florida and liked South Seas on Captiva Island the best. We wanted to stay in the states to make travel easier for our guests.

Wedding Date: July 17, 2010 (date twins, Mandy!)

What made you choose this date? July because we're both teachers and will be on summer break, 17th because I liked the idea of 7.17.10, the numbers make a fact family (7+10=17...etc.). Yeah, you can't really take the teacher out of me :)

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? blue and brown (to be exact, aqua and chocolate maybe?)

What is something unique about your wedding? I'll have to come back to this one...too late for my little brain lol

lol I love your math reasoning, Ashley! You're my first date twin- woot!

 

Jenn- yes I am having the same problem getting prices this early. it's frustrating- I feel like I have to wait around to get anything done. Can't do this before that is done and can't do that until x date. I just want it all done now!! :P

Hi there,

Andrew and I are getting married on July 30, 2010 at the Grand Palladium, Riviera Maya.

We chose the summer because I am a teacher as well. It limits the options wink.gif

The date was just a process of elimination trying to plan around other things - birthdays, weddings, holidays etc...

I havent really chosen the colours yet but I am leaning toward aqua/turquoise for the chairs, table runners, gazebo decorations etc. I am afraid to add too much colour and having it look like a circus or something.

 

So...what's the status on your planning? I have obvioulsy picked the date and I have booked the TA, location, tentively booked the photographer. I found a picture of "the dress" but I havent ventured into a store to try any on...We dont have a wedding party- it is a 2nd marriage for both of us so our kids will be the BM and GM. I will have to consult them about their outfits once I pick a colour.

I admit I am a bit confused about the STD cards and invitations. I want to send the STD cards but then my TA wants to hear from people ASAP so doesnt that make the invitations kind of redundanthuh.gif How far ahead is your TA saying to book people?

 

Thanks for starting this thread. I want to know how "on track" I am with plans.

Name: Angela

 

FI Name: Tim

 

Wedding Destination: Los Cabos, Mexico (Dreams or Riu Palace .... huh.gif?)

 

What made you choose this destination?: Out of all the places we've visited, Cabo is a favourite!

 

Wedding Date: July 28, 2010 (or somewhere around there!)

 

What made you choose this date?Our photographer was booked the other weeks in July, and I am a teacher as well so my options for other months are limited.

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Not yet

 

What is something unique about your wedding? It is so not planned yet :P

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: I am one of the most indecisive people ever which, I have found, sucks when planning a wedding!!!

Yay, I’m so excited you started this thread! Thanks Mandy!

 

Jannae and Ryan

Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen

What made you choose this destination?: I wanted to do it at an all inclusive, and wanted the water to be warm, and it is not on the Pacific side!! Chose the hotel based off of trip advisor reviews…

Wedding Date: July 6, 2010

What made you choose this date?: Kind of like you ladies—my grandmother drives a school bus, and two of our good friends are teachers. Also, it is near the holiday weekend, so everyone else will have an extra day off!

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they?: Magenta and Orange with touches of lime and turquoise. Love your colors Mandy!- mine may be a little circus like, but I’m ok with it!

What is something unique about your wedding?: Our nieces and nephews is our entire bridal party- and I told the oldest (7yrs) neice that she can pick the dresses- she is SO excited

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: Our save the dates are going out within the next couple of weeks, they have been such a project! They are the FI’s idea, we are sending ‘shot kits’ to everyone (personalized shot glasses, shots of tequila, and a STD card). We are not doing invites, just felt it wasn’t necessary. Accepting all RSVP’s on our website.

 

I have a TA lined up, I am using one from this site, and she seems great so far!! She has given me rates just recently, and said that they ‘price match’ which is comforting. She hasn’t given me a time limit for guests to book yet. I should probably ask.

 

I have my dress picked out online, but will not buy it until December or January. Have some lbs to lose!! Photographer is picked out (Elizabeth Medina) but I won’t have the $ for her downpayment until next month. I HOPE she is still available. WOW I’m in TOTAL limbo right now!

 

Angela: I totally feel your pain. I change my mind pretty much daily about things!!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
