JT, BTW the Dreams Resort looks beautiful, I love the fact that it's a little off the path of the chain of hotels.


How are the plans coming along?

Oh my GOSH!! I am sooo overwhelmed!!! I am a May 30th, 2010 bride and have SOO much still to do! How in the world do you ladies do all of the DIY, etc....and still have a job, life, etc..??!! I feel like I don't have enough time in the day to research and yet so many brides have already done the research for me/us! I guess after I get back from Sundance snowboarding Jan. 20-24, I will be able to focus more and hunker down and get things done!?! Oh, and did I mention that we might be relocating from SC to Vancouver mid April?!! OMG if I make it through this, I can make it through ANYTHING!!


I hope to have our invitation passport style form completed by the end of the month to get things rolling there. One thing at a time is my motto so far.


Checklist complete:

-Dresses (2 out of 3 ordered)


-Location & date

-BM dresses ordered

-STD's sent out this week

-Inspiration boards for each event for vendors/WC

-STD planning thread

-Hair stylist


Checklist To-do:

-OOT bags (This is the BIG one)


-old, new, borrowed, blue

-Cake (grooms)

-Grooms/man attire

-Jewelry, accessories


-Table #'s, menus, and namecards, Oh my! wink.gif

-and on, and on, and on......I have to stop here bc I am stressing out just writing this LOL!!! The reality of getting all of this done is what it is and has to be done, but it is definitely stressful and makes me miss my Mom even more. I wish I had some consistent help, well any help would be nice. sad.gif

But I am so glad that I have this forum to lean on and use! I do not know what I wdve done without you ALL!!


Congrats to EVERYONE and Thanks for all of the sharing and excitement! :)

Hey everyone, Happy New Year! Happy wedding year!! Only 4 months to go - EEK! It's gonna come really fast!

We finally got people to book, though it was only in the last few days. Our rsvp deadline was Jan 1st & booking deadline was Jan 5th (bad timing but the hotel set the date). But we've been out of town visiting family for 2 weeks so haven't been home to receive the rsvp's. So I sent out a reminder email Saturday to everyone who hadn't booked (which was almost everyone). I included the room rates, our website & travel agent info and asked people to let us know their plans. It really helped nudge people who are planning on coming and those who aren't just sent me an email back (got a lot of "no's" but at least we know now!). I think we had 10 rooms book on the final day. Bunch of procrastinators & I seriously can't understand why it's so freaking hard to send back a stupid rsvp card! ugh.


Anyway, tomorrow's my BD shoot! It's combined with my bachelorette party so I'm doing it w/ my 3 BM's and then we're having a girls night with a bunch of friends afterward. I'm nervous but excited too. But I really really wish I hadn't indulged so much over the holidays.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
