does anyone know of a cheap place to get 28 lanyards and zippered key card holders????? (with cheap shipping to canada?)  i was thinking of scrapping the idea, but then yesterday actually read a REALLY good review on trip advisor for my resort and he did recommend bringing a lanyard for the key.

Erin, I'm glad you finally found something he liked and in the right color.

 

I wish that I could find a check list for a destination wedding. I want to make sure I have all the little things covered but all the lists I find are either focused on local weddings and catering or don't cover all our little shopping lists, like sand ceremony and table cards.

 

For FI & GM, we still need to make a final decision on ties, FI is going shopping with them this weekend for shirt and pants.

 

Both his parents need attire.

 

I need shoes, but am holding off until dress #3 arrives.

 

Need to order BM jewelery.

 

We need vases for sand ceremony, I didn't want the traditional set.

 

I need to make paper cones for rose petals.

 

Need to find paper for programs, waiting for a good card stock sale at Michaels.

 

We need gifts for parents, BM & GM. (suggestions?)

Laura - someone else suggested checking out Acklands Grainger. They are a safety supplies store with locations everywhere. I'm pretty sure they would carry them and will usually let you break open packages. I don't know about pricing though because my company shops there almost everyday, so we usually get a big discount.

I LOVE the color of FIs shirt.  It actually matches the color I painted the kitchen last fall (yes, our kitchen is orange!).  I'm glad that is done.

 

When I look at all you have to do, I feel like I'm really forgetting stuff.  We are not doing a sand ceremony I guess... I never really thought about it, but I do like the idea... Hmm...

 

My parents also need attire, but I'm so not interested in working on that...which is bad, I know!

 

The gift for my parents is partially done I think...  We upgraded their room at the resort, so they will have a much nicer room!  But I feel I might want to do something else too...  Hmm... 

The gift that I'm doing for the BM, is I had custom bags made for them by a local girl on etsy.  I absolutely LOVE them!  I have also gotten them earrings, some special snacks for their bags, and I paid for 1/2 of their hair & make-up

 

I do not know what FI is doing for the GM....

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • Does he still work?
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
