October 2010 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Ok so getting to this thread a little later than most, but I too am getting married in October (10/16/10) at El Dorado Royal. We have the resort booked, as well as about half of our guests booked. Now I have left are the things I have been putting off forever like the flowers and OOT bags!

that was my second date choice. My FI is british so he wanted to write the date as 20.10.2010 In the end I won with October 21 (it was my grandma's birthday- how could you argue with that!)

Tanya, do you think the bags you ordered from OTC would fit 2 mugs and a bunch of other OOT crap inside? I think I want to do only one bag per room. One room actually has 3 ppl staying too so would 3 mugs be pushing it? The pic looks relatively large but the dimentions dont sound that big... hmmm?

Hi Aly,

YES, I actually took some from the bottom of the bag bc it was too big...I have 2 sports bottles, pashminas for the ladies, and a bunch of MISC crap...so Yes I def think that they will be big enough, I too am only doing 1 per room. Just make sure that you order the "large" bags.

Hi. I am getting married on 10-10-10 at Azul Sensatori Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico!!! I am sooo glad to find the October 2010 Wedding Forum. I thought it didn't exist. I have been on this forum for couple months and it's been great! I am excited to read all the posts (it might be a late night with a glass of wine).

 

HORAY for 10-10-10 couples!!!

Welcome Chong! Sounds like my kind of friday night... glass of wine and BDW! My FI just shakes his head because I pretty much have my laptop attached to my knees! His favorite line :"Are you creeping again Aly?" Mine: "NOOOO.... so....."

Aly,
That is so funny. My FI says the same thing... "are you on that thing again?" I am pretty much to attached to my laptop all night looking for things..

So here what I have done so far for my OOT...
I got beach towels with embroidery (HOT pepper holding maracas with the text "Riviera Maya, Mexico 10-10-10"). We didn't want to put our names or wedding related stuff since we wanted for them to use the towels. It was bit pricey but we really wanted to thank our guests for coming to our destination wedding. I thought about buying a beach tote but it is too expensive with the towels... I have found wonderful reusable grocery bag from Whole Foods for 99c. I am so excited.

I will be also including a CD mailer envelope with our home address and postage included to get all of our friends' pics back! And of course, Thank you card for coming to the wedding. I didn't want to include something that everyone can throw away afterward.

We are planning to give this out on the day before the wedding. I am not doing "rehearsal dinner" since it will cost me extra for food when we are at the ALL INCLUSIVE resort. There are plenty of places to meet and we can get to the restaurant early to sit near each other. Nobody really sits with EVERYONE at dinner anyway. I am also planning to take advantage of all the activities the resort is offering. Haven't figure out how to write everything to communicate but I am working on it...

wow.. that is all I have for OOT.

Chong - thanks for the welcoming messages!

LOL! Same here! He makes fun of me! But you ladies all share my excitement. My friends do not want to constantly hear about my upcoming wedding. Yay for October 2010's!!! :) Oh, and wine!

    • 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?
