Recommended Posts

I am a May 2010 bride too! We are getting married May 14, 2010 in Puerto Vallarta at the Dreams Resort! I really can't wait for next May to get here! I just sent out all the STD's at the end of May and just found my dress last week. We are looking at invitations next week, when are you all sending out your invitations?

I should be sending out my STDs in the next week or two and I have pretty much designed my boarding pass invitation and plan to send them out Sept/Oct, depending on when pricing comes out. I'm getting excited about dress shopping, should be going in the next couple of weeks. Also we got our wedding bands already but only b/c the Kays by me had their once a year big sale, we save saved over $600 on the normal sale price and $1200 of the retail price!

I'm going with the general etiquette I've seen on the forum here in terms of invitation timeline. My std's are all ready and NEED to go out this week- but I'm waiting on freaking Zazzle to send me my rsvp stamps that I customized more than a week ago! Cannot say I recommend them at this point. Seems like they always take forever to ship stuff.

But as far as the formal invitations go, they will go out two months prior to departure, and ONLY to those who we have received rsvp's from or have booked. Not gonna waste the money on peeps who didn't bother to even respond and I know aren't coming.

I think that is when we are going to be sending out invitations out to. We are sending them to everyone who got a STD, so we want them to get a reminder to book their trip!! And then also sending out a getting excited brochure about a month before.

Why can't May come any faster?blush2.gif

I think I'm just gonna type up a brochure, then do a couple of newsletters to remind people to book. I figure, by the time I'm ready to send my formal invites, people will know if they are coming or not. If I have to "remind" them, then they aren't coming...it's either a priority or it isn't. I'll do the brochure and newsletters over the next six months, but by the time I get down to February of next year, forget that and anybody who hasn't booked. They ain't comin' and if they are, they won't be coming just because I reminded them to book. lol

I forgot to add that I just received my STD magnets on Thursday, so I'm addressing envelopes this weekend and going to get them in the mail on Monday. I used Fresh Impressions: Specializing in Custom Save the Date Magnets and Invitations - Home and was very pleased with everything. They emailed me an electronic proof within 24 hours after I placed my order. And I didn't have to pay for anything until after I received the proof. From the day I approved the proof, it only took 1 week to receive my order and that was with ground shipping too!

 

We have the link to our website at the bottom of the magnet (we ordered the larger ones - I think they are 3 x 4 inches), so our guests can go online and get all the information they need to start planning. They can RSVP on our site as well. I haven't decided on exactly how we'll handle the invitations, but I have a little time to think about that.

 

Sending out the STD just makes it feel more "official". Kinda scary, but kinda exciting too!!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
