I was thinking not till september, but now after reading your posts I feel like I should do them sooner...also do I send invitations to people, even though Im pretty sure they're not cominghuh.gif what is the etiquette for this?
I have heard mixed reviews about the resort photog. One thing I know is they are very expensive! Im using Adrian Herrera. His work is great and his prices are reasonable. What are you planning on doing for music during the reception? I have been in a back in forth fight with my WC regarding DJ's and outside vendors. The resort is charging unreasonable prices for just about everything.

Thats awesome that you already have 32 people booked!! How did you do that?! I feel like you have a good amount of people booked so you might not need an early RSVP date. I have one person booked so Im making my RSVP date for July. Im sending out invitations to people that I know wont come, just because I dont want to be rude. Even if they dont attend the wedding, they might even send you a wedding gift because they were invited. :)

I think I was just lucky! I'm the first in my family (mom and dad's side) to get married and DEAD LAST of my friends so everyone was up for it! My family is super excited and my friends are so happy to go for a fun weekend wedding (plus they live all over the country so they would have had to travel anyway...better Mexico then NJ)! LoL

Hi! Im very interested in Adrian Herrera...can I ask you what made up your mind to choose him? the only thing that is making me hesitant is that there are not many reviews on here about him...do you know of anyone who used him so we can see his work?

As far as music were hiring the mexican trio for cocktail hour, then i think im renting the ipod docking station with speakers and playing my ipod...not sure yet

I felt the same way about Adrian at first. But his prices are VERY reasonable and for some reason I kept drawing myself to him. I asked him to send me some more of his work and he did with no problem. Sometimes you just have to take risks. What sealed the deal for me was he got back to my emails in a timely matter and he was good with answering my MANY questions. So far, I have nothing to complain about.

    • 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. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
