July 2010 Brides!!

Recommended Posts

I asked for a tenative RSVP in February, to see what kind of a turn out we might get... and I will set a solid RSVP by May 1 for sure, so we can plan OOT bags, reception count, etc.!

My informal tentative RSVP was Dec 1- the deadline guests could book their travel with our agent. Well it's Dec 5 and only 10 ppl have booked( including bride and groom). 50+ ppl expressed interest, I don't know what happened. I plan to send a "reminder to book" email to my immediate family. I don't want to seem annoying but it's good to have a sense of how many ppl are coming to make plans for menu etc.

Sheree...maybe folks are waiting until after the holidays....maybe you can see if they are still interested but just have not booked as of yet for some reason?

My wedding website has an RSVP feature...some have used it...most have not yet...i figure that folks are just waiting until the new year...

Hey Ladies!!!! I'm glad to hear there are others planning on July destination weddings. Also seems like the "teacher" aspect seems to be the common thread. My fiance is a teacher so rather than making friends and family travel during peak season...we decided on early July!

 

 

Name:Sabrina

FI Name: Chris

 

Wedding Destination: Ocean Sand & Blue , Punta Cana

 

What made you choose this destination?Heard the beaches are fantastic..price is reasonable and my wedding coordinator is FANTASTIC

 

Wedding Date: July 6th 2010

 

What made you choose this date? The earlist date we could get...closest to the end of school year...

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Nope

 

What is something unique about your wedding? I have a 6 year old daughter from a previous marriage. She loves my fiance...she will be walking me down the isle and will be incorporated in the ceremony by standing by me and accepting Chris into our family!

 

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: I'm looking to share my photographer....so if you know any other Punta Cana brides for this week, send them my way :-)

I think you may be right. I'm sure I'll hear from some people after the New Year. Good thing is that we put a hold on 10 rooms so there is some more time to book.

His mom has shared that she is looking forward to this day so she can celebrate all the hard work they put into raising their son and watching him get married.

 

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: My sister had a destination wedding in Jamaica and it was the most romantic wedding I have ever seen. I hope to capture that same moment with our beach wedding!

Hey everyone! I hung around the forum a lot this summer, but since the school year started (FI and I are both teachers) I've been crazy busy! I'm looking forward to getting back to the boards now that we're just 6 months away!! Just wanted to say hey and see what everyone is up to. I feel SO behind right now. Anyone else in the same boat??

    • 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!
