Unique situation, can anyone relate????

Recommended Posts

Hey Moon Palace brides! It's been quiet in here as of late... How's the planning coming along?? I've run into a roadblock censored.gif !!

 

We're having a hell of a time getting people to RSVP. Our problem is that we have a bit of a unique situation, where we have friends getting married in Playa del Carmen the same week we're getting married at MP. We planned things this way so all of our friends would be down in the area at the same time, and we wouldn't have to get them to shell out money to travel down there 2x next year. To avoid any issues, my FI and I (graciously IMO) told all of our friends that they shouldn't worry about picking who's hotel to stay at because no matter what we'll all meet for a group excursion and have fun down in Mexico, even if they miss our ceremony. Our friend's hotel is more reasonably priced as well as we were hoping for a smaller event.

 

The problem is that she's not doing a damn thing to reign in her RSVPs, and people are still hesitant about where they're staying or if they're even coming! I want to start getting my OOT bags more together, as well as send out pre-wedding brochures etc. to all my attendees!

 

Anyone run into anything like this at all?

 

If our friends are staying at her resort, but come to our ceremony do you think I should give them an OOT bag?

 

Thanks in advance, I'm going to post this as a separate thread also...!!!!!

I think given the choice, most people will likely opt to go to the more cost efficient resort and just visit your resort on the day of your wedding.

Perhaps if they don't plan on staying at your resort, they don't feel like they 'have' to rsvp? Maybe you should clarify that and ask for responses regardless which resort they plan to stay at.

 

Good luck!

I agree! I think you should only provide OOT bags for people staying at your resort, and let the other bride take care of her resort. Maybe you could plan on doing a small favour for the people who attend the wedding instead? Just an idea. Hope you have better luck getting numbers, with only three and a half months to go, they are hardly leaving you enough time! Good Luck!

I agree with what some of the other girls have said: the OOT bags will be other other brides responsibility for guests staying at her resort! For those you have, I would do up some bags for them; as well, have a small favor for those that go to the wedding (regardless of resort) as a thank you for coming to your ceremony!

 

It is getting tight to book, wow!

I know! These guys are a pain in the arse, let me tell ya... We really only expect family at our resort, but we keep hearing that people are opting towards our much nicer resort instead. Geez! I'm sending out one final reminder to RSVP and am demanding we have it all done by January 31st. If not, too bad so sad people!

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
