    Hello everyone! So, I was told the only wedding time available the entire month of November is the 29th at 11:00. Obviously, I took it but I REALLY wanted a late afternoon wedding. Anyone out there getting married on the 29th that would want an earlier time? Maybe we could swap? Just thought I would ask...........

      Hello everyone,
      looks like this thread has been a great source to many of you and I am happy that so many have planned to have their wedding at the Dreams Riviera Cancun.

      Our wedding is in just over 2 months and I realise that there must be some last minute things that I need to do. Does anyone have any points for me to do? People keep saying that I may have so much to do and I feel like I have no idea what I need to do. I have the dress and the location, plus just got our bridesmaid dresses, but that's about it! Help!!!

      Thanks!

        Hmmm are you doing welcome bags? You can order stuff for that and put them together.
        Finalize your ceremony order and readings - I don't know if you're doing a legal or non legal ceremony but you can request the script from Ana and then make changes to it.
        Are you doing ceremony programs? You'll want to make or order those. (If you want to make them, I'm happy to give you my templates and where I ordered my supplies, it's super easy and I'm printing them off my own printer - so they're inexpensive)
        Any extra decor that you're bringing with you?
        Start making a packing list
        Are you going to do a pre-travel brochure? There are tons of templates for that in the DIY section too.
        Send your bridesmaids an email letting them know what shoes/jewelry to wear for the wedding day.
        Send your bridesmaids/groomsmen a "day of timeline" - also templates in the diy forum...or I can send you mine.

        Can you tell I've spent way too much time in the diy forum? I've come up with 12 new ideas to do before my wedding hahahaha.

        Just remember, the flowers, cake, decorations...all that stuff is going to be done once you get down there so you really don't have much to do - just some small stuff!

            Sorry vent time - I have email confirmation from Ana 3 weeks ago that we have booked Ivan at Doremixx and that I can now refer all the details to him etc. and that she will update our contract to include him. There is a DJ Doremixx thread on here, more than one actually, I am super excited cause he seems like he is sooo on the ball! anyhow, on one of these threads I mentioned how glad I am to check off another big thing, and he just privately pmd me saying he hasnt heard from Ana at all pertaining to my date or booking!!! like oh my goodness is there no end to this!!

            off to have breakfast, this is just getting to be too much

              Boo - I'm sorry that totally stinks - I actually sent her an email last week because months ago I told her I wanted to reserve a dj and then I figured I'd better double check that she actually did get me a dj...of course it'll be a while before I hear back ahhhhhh!!!

                Ladies -
                I'm going to attach a few templates for y'all - I had a pm requesting them and I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to attach files to a pm...hahaha so I'm attaching them here. These are just a few of my little diy projects so far
                Welcome Letter (I haven't figured out how to attach the pages to eachother yet...haha)
                Tag for OOT / which is also my template for my maracas tag
                Good Morning Newsletter - which I copied from Martha Stewart :)

                I've also created a table card template and a ceremony program template. All my supplies have been ordered from paper presentation and I also bought white shimmery card stock from micheals.

                Wow...I have waaaaayyyy too much time on my hands...well actually I'm not a huge fan of my job these days so I'm pouring all my free time into wedding planning projects

                  Can someone please post the cake options again? Thank you.
                  Also if anyone has the vase options (for rent from ana) can you post those as well?

                    Lily-
                    Thank you so much for posting this!!! Keep 'em coming! I was just about to PM you. I have been trying to get myself organized and pull together some templates from other threads, but have been slacking. This is wonderful to see what other brides are doing. It motivates me to start all my DIY projects this week!

We've already been to the resort in November to meet with Ana and I'm pretty convinced that everything will run smoothly but now it's crunch time and I can't help but feel like maybe I should do more I have the OOT Bags ready, the favors are done, I picked the menu...any suggestions
