If you looking for honeymoon suggestions - I have heard secrets in fantastic but have never stayed there myself. I have stayed at the Excellence resort that is just down from the Moon Palace and I loved it. It's a much smaller resort than the moon palace so it might be a nice change of pace for you...

and as for your friends annoying you - I think that just comes with being a bride :) Hopefully its not too bad.
Thanks for some input. We have to decide soon. Ugh I am just over sensitive i guess. idk whatever I am not going to worry about it!

Does anyone happen to know how many updo's the resort is able to handle for one wedding party? I have a total of 7 ladies(including me) right now that want their hair done for the wedding and I'm just curious if the resort can handle it or if I am going to have to start picking which bridesmaid can do their own hair and which should have a pro do it :)
I emailed the lady for the hair and makeup appointments already which she said she would confirm with me in Jan. I think I have like 5 doing hair and makeup and she didnt say they couldnt handel it. I just made sure that I made the appointments early enough incase they were running late. ( someone on a post here commented that they ran a little late) I also scheduled a hair trial for myself the day I arrive...my make up I can fix...my hair is another story :)

I think we should start a list of what we all "think" we need to do in order to plan our wedding.. Like how many months before we should be doing so and so..

 

For me:

About a year until my wedding- I sent out Save The dates

About a year until my weddingl- I began looking for my dress. It takes approx. 6 months to come in

Hoping to send out my invitations about 7 months before

 

Booking appointments etc.. How long in advance you think we need..I know we do not receive our WC until 4 months before, but what can we do until then?

 

I hope you girls don't think I am crazy... =)

 

Like to know what you ladies are up to now!

My wedding is in April:

 

12 Months before- Tried on dresses and ordered "the one"

9 Months before- Sent out STD

7 Months before- Got my dress

6 Months before- Worked on formal invites

4 Months before- Send out formal invites, get FI and groomsmen attire

3 Months before- Get OOT bags and legal documents together

1 Month before- Have hair and makeup trial (mom and BM doing these for me)

 

I'm probably missing a lot in between, but this is all I can think of for now.

Do you by any chance still have the email address?
I was just assigned my on site coordinator this week but she is away until November 30th. (so really I have just been assigned an email address I can send questions too and hope she responds in a couple weeks when shes back)

Thanks!!!!

As for the shells from what i have seen they have been in the bottom of the jar!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
