I sent out STDs at the beginning of this month, giving everyone just over a year for a head's up. I want to send out invitations in the fall also. People need time to actually be prepared for something like this. Then in around February I'll send invites to the reception only for those I know won't come to Mexico.

Once you pick a resort it'll make it so much easier and you'll actually start to feel like you're getting married. I feel like you can't really go wrong with resorts these days!! I have heard Turks & Caicos is awesome too!!

 

We're going to wait until summer for our at home reception and then go on our honeymoon after that. I'm a teacher so it works best with my schedule. Lots of my guests got their STDs and loved them!!! YAY exciting!!

Oh ok! That's 2 weeks after our date. So you're the week after Easter and we are the week before Easter. I still don't think the holiday should be effecting us that much. Hopefully the prices will keep dropping!!! Thanks for the update though!!!

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been here in a while. Since my last visit I have switched resorts - with the help of my Dad. Great right?...maybe...maybe not. Now he has invited EVERYONE!!!!! Now I have no tally on how many people are even possiblly coming with us. So my quick fix is as of now only have the free reception that the resort is offering us. And not make any add ons atleast untill I have a complete tally from the resort on who booked.

 

Do you all think that just doing the cocktail reception is cheesy?

I don't think it is cheesy, especially depending on the time of day. I think if you are only doing a cocktail reception, it would be best to either have it early enough that they can go have dinner afterwards or late enough that guests would have already eaten dinner.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
