Help do you do couple's Itinerary??

Recommended Posts

I agree with your FI. We had no clue what we were doing every day at 5pm when we went for our wedding. Who cares? Be flexible, its your vacation too. Do what you wish and if guests want to hang out with each other they'll find each other. Our guests knew basically where we were at the resort if they needed to find us or wanted to hang out. We did a couple of excursions together, but we didn't decide on them until we got down there. Planning every minute of a vacation is no fun for people, including yourself!

i tend to agree with your guy on this one; just let everyone do their own thing you will probably end up doing quite a few things together without any forward planning. Although the wedding is our most important day we have to remember a lot of guests will have saved hard to be at the wedding so are also treating it as their holiday; not just a wedding.

Hello! I'm doing something similar - I copied a "Good Morning Newsletter" from Martha Stewart - and we're going to have the hotel put them under our guests doors in the mornings - I'll attach it for you. But essentially it's got a space for "suggested activity" and then "Today's big deal" - which would be where you'd remind guests about the welcome party or any other group activity you may have had planned. I've attached it for you - it's a powerpoint so you can easily customize it for yourselves.

How many people are coming to your wedding and how big is your resort? I would maybe create a "home base" place where people can meet up if they want to hang out during the day - like near the pool with the pool bar - and somewhere at night - like the tequila lounge!

 

My hotel is SMALL (98 rooms) so i assume we'll all find eachother very easily!

Is your hotel charging you for them putting the newsletters under the door? I've heard that sometimes they won't do these types of things if it's a big resort...

I'm just giving my guests a timeline with the rehersal/welcome cocktails and dinner times and the breakdown of times for the day of the wedding.

DRC will do it - but they charge. I might delegate the task to my dad since he wakes up at 5am anyway...hahaha.

That's a good idea! My dad will be up drinking coffee... I'll have him walk and drop :-)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
