Another Soror! Yea, it would be funny if you came to the Bahamas! They actually have a chapter in Nassau, so I'm sure we'll see some Bahamian Sorors!

 

Classadiva, we may cross paths since we plan to do some activities at Atlantis! Don't feel like a sloth, my husband says my organization is borderline excessive lol.. I even have a budget line for undergarments lol..

Hey July brides....when are you guys thinking of sending out your invites and by what date will you ask your guests to RSVP? I was thinking I would send out invites in early March and have an RSVP date at the very end of May. Does that sound right or is early March too early to send out invites for a July wedding? What are you guys doing?

My plan was to send my invites out in January or February with a RSVP deadline of May 1, with a couple of reminders in between. I'm unsure if that would be to early for a July wedding. Even though I sent save-the-date magnets, I still don't want people to forget, but I don't want people to wait too late, because some many not start making plans until they get their invite... I dunno.

Hmmn....I hadn't thought about sending mine out that early. All of the info about how to book, etc is on our website. They got the website address in early November with the STD's....I feel like they know they can book now if they choose too...also...I don't want to be a nudge!! LOL

I do like the idea of sending reminders....

Name: Chelle

FI Name: Todd

 

Wedding Destination: Moon Palace, Cancun, Mexico

What made you choose this destination? We were originally booked for the Excellence Playa Muejeres. However, after several teenagers in both of our families pitched a fit at the "Adults Only" part of the resort...we switched to MP. We had friends who got married at MP and thought they were in heaven their entire time.

 

Wedding Date: July 17, 2010 @ 1pm

What made you choose this date? We wanted Saturday. July was exactly 1 year from becoming engaged....so we picked from there.

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Black, White & Aqua

What is something unique about your wedding? My "something Old" is a tiny pair of skulls that have been hanging on a leather strand from my fiance's jeep rear view mirror for years. I am having them attached on the ribbon that runs through the corset in the back of my dress. They will dangle from the there. I thought it was sentimental!

 

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding:

 

I have three little kids (2 yr, 5yr, 9yr) from a previous marriage....this is a "3rd times the charm" wedding. This will be my first ever "wedding" and it will be IT! I am not much into planning every tiny little detail....but I understand new first time brides who do! I am just at a different point in my life. :) Howevr, one thing very important to me is my 9 year old will be riding in the horse drawn carriage with me to the gazebo. Something special for just her and I!

 

Congrats everyone!

I will be sending out invites the first week in March with RSVPs for May 1. I already sent out STD's in August and a travel letter in October with all of the booking info. The invites are just to get the count of those who are coming.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
