Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

opps sorry I read it wrong hahaa I meant yeah having programs will be much more easier. I was actually worrying about how am I going to get everyone's tote bags if they are staying at different resorts you know. Because I was going to have it in their rooms those that stay with us. To make it easier because it's going to have schedule's for the entire weekend.

What do you all think of this welcome letter? hahaha I know I am a freak going above and beyond. I kind of took it from others parts and pieces here and there and added my own words.

 

Welcome to Rivera Cancun, Mexico!

 

We are extremely pleased that you were able to travel with us to celebrate our special day and to spend time in the sun with our family and friends. When will you get to do this again, especially for a wedding? Words definitely cannot express how sincerely honored and blessed we feel that you are here.

 

The heart of marriage is memories.” Marriage is a beginning of a life that will grow and change in ways more wonderful than we can imagine. Understanding that life holds many momentous commitments, we thank you for sharing in our happiness. Many years from now, when we look back on our life together, our love for each other, and the special day we became husband and wife, it will be the fond memories of our family and friends that joined us that made our day even more speciall.

 

 

 

We hope that you will fully enjoy your relaxing vacation and the Go Green that this weekend will bring. As a small token of our appreciation for your being here, we hope that you enjoy the goodies in this bag and that they make your stay in Rivera Cancun just a little more fun and comfortable. Let the fun begin! See you at the wedding! Below is the itinerary of what's going on throughout the weekend.

 

Friday

Please join us for cocktails & Dinner

Sunday

prettypigpig- yep that's how my friend is too. She doesn't understand all that and bach. party and bridal shower are like. I was frustrated when she wasn't able to come with me to any of my gathering with my girls. But now I understand. Why.. like you said over there they got everything in package and all they need to do is show and they do the rest.

wow i've missed loads. lol

 

Mexbride83 - thank you hopefully when the flights are out we will confirm us being date twins! I think i will do the same as you and get the hotel to put the OOT bags in the guest rooms and like you say those arriving the same day will understand if they are alittle late.....

 

welcome Josietoms! Congrats on your wedding! Nice to see another fellow UK bride!

 

Nicyx - love your sandals, your so clever! I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

 

Linhy - I think your letter is lovely! From the heart and i'm sure your guests will be very happy and honored you invited them!

 

We had a bit of a blip this week! the AHR room hire charge has gone up by £1300!!! going from £500 to £1800! ( I think this is around $2600) A massive jump from what we thought it would be. Thats without food, entertainment, drink etc... So unless we can get this lowered we will need a rethink on the AHR as everything is adding up fast and with not knowing what Mexico will cost it's a bit of a gamble! :o(

 

Also my dad is not coming. Not because he doesn't want to be there he just can't do the journey. He hasn't been on a plane for yr's now and he is panicing over it and i dont want him worrying for the next 14 odd months... I am upset but not going to dwell on it. I am going to ask my son Harrison (he will be 13 when we marry) to give me away! So on the day i wont be sad Dad is not there i will be proud my little man is doing the job!! x

LOL, don't worry, she will start to realize that some pieces are coming together by themselves! If her wedding is in November, she will start to "realize" it in the Summer, especially seeing you..planning everything! kekeke, my July 2010 chinese bride friend, was like oh...we have to print the seating cards? oh..we need thankyou cards?...oh...the centrepieces?

WOW..you already done the whole program?!? I better copy and save it as an example! kekekeke!

Michelle,
I totally understand what u mean, especially the Sterling pound and USD exchange rate can swing and reception hall and food aren't cheap (small things like chair covers, flowers..all adds up pretty fast!)
I am sure ur little man will do a nice job!! I guess your daughter can be a very cute flower girl!

Hello everyone! My fiance and I are meeting with our travel agent this week to book our 2011 wedding in the Riviera Maya! I am 90% sure we have pinned it down to the Excellence Riviera Cancun, I am so excited, this forum has been so helpful in decision making!

I heard Excellence Riviera is a nice one! I had a few friends that stayed there in the past. I heard they are connected with the Dreams Resort. Same owner or something. Good choice on that one!
