What I would and wouldn't do again...

Recommended Posts

this has been fantastic!

 

i am a big stresser, so i am hoping that all of these details you have cleared up for me will take some of that stress away!

 

i am my own travel agent, so i hope that the stress of all the booking doesn't overwhelm me over and above the actual wedding planning!

 

i am so excited...you ladies all made it seem so real for me. THANK YOU!

What I would do:

-Get married at Dreams Resort in Huatulco Mexico

-Get married over the holidays so we got to celebrate Christmas and New Years with all our friends and family

-Put together OOT bags and welcome letters for everyone-they really appreciated them, plus it made it easy to find people!

-Give everyone travel mugs -again, huge rave from the guests

-Have a low key rehearsal and rehearsal dinner

-Have my sister spend the night with me, was nice to just hang out with her the night before

-Write our own ceremony script and vows. It made it really personal and our guests really enjoyed it

-Bring an IPOD for the reception instead of having a DJ

-Have a big wedding party. We got to include all the people we wanted even though it was large but it was perfect

-Do a day after session with our photographer

-Switched resorts for our honeymoon

 

What I wouldn't do

-Give guests a year and a half notice. It really didnt make a different

-Get bouquets from the resort. we should have just went into town and bought and made them ourselves for a fraction of the price. Plus then they wouldn't have been late!

-Book a travel agent who didn't live in our city. NEVER again will I book a travel agent outside of Calgary

 

I think thats it!

Thanks Nadine! I was thinking about going in to town the day before my wedding to buy flowers locally by myself - good to hear that someone else thought that is the way to go!

Thanks Nadine! We are planning a TTD the day after the wedding but started to worry that it might not be the best day to do it, but now i'm glad! i really wished we were doing it on our honeymoon week 2, but our photog will be gone then sad.gif
