Whew...I just literally finished reading every single page of this thread and just wanted to say hi as one of the few grooms around here. We've happily confirmed our wedding date for Dec 20, 2014 and we couldn't be more excited to work with Mayte. I've been in contact with Isaac to confirm the date, but have not been in contact with Mayte. I fully don't expect to have too much contact with her since we're quite a ways away. Does anyone have recommendations on what I should have decided before I first start planning with her? Also, would someone mind informing me the proper email to contact Mayte? I wasn't sure if firstname.lastname@example.org was correct of if she has a different address she uses.
AR DreamWedding, would you also kindly email me your template to email@example.com? Thank you!
When my fiance and I first got engaged, I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole wedding planning thing, so he initiated our wedding research. He also read through most of this forum and mentioned to me one day, "Babe, its just me and the brides out there!" It's one of my favorite quotes from this entire wedding planning process. I'm pretty sure you are not the only groom though... just one of the first to post as there are a ton of lurkers.
The only e-mail we have for Mayte is the jellyfishenterprise one. If you decide to visit Jellyfish before your wedding and let her know in an e-mail, she will respond and set up a time to meet you. Other than that, she will likely only write you if you wedding is on the horizon. AR- dream wedding's outline is a great starting point for your preparation with mayte. I would say it has even more details than you need for a first conversation. As long as you have a vision, she'll be able to take that, add to it, and make it come alive for the actual wedding day.
Congrats and welcome!
