    I have Booked my Photographer...The One ...the Only DEL SOL!

     

    If you ladies haven't booked your photographers yet. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND looking into them. If you can't afford their prices but LOVE their photo journalism style. Check out their sister company La Luna. Half the price, 100% of the love.

      hi ladies!

       

      i am getting married on feb. 19th at the now sapphire.  so far... sent out save the dates, have a website, booked hotel/airfare, i got my dress and 1 pair of shoes (flip flops), saving up to buy my pretty shoes! ha!, found my invites but haven't ordered them yet, will be doing so in the next week or so, i've bought of ton of bathing suits, dresses, shoes all for mexico (i def. took full advantage of the end of season sales! ha), bought a ton of stuff for my oot bags but still have more to do/buy, started working on my "welcome" booklet, booked a photographer, i am almost finished with my bridesmaid gifts... found my bridesmaid dresses and FINALLY got my fiance to decide on his and his groomsmen attire... thats it so far...

       

      still debating reception decorations, i am thinking about bringing my own stuff (organza overlays, etc) but not sure yet.  is anyone else bringing their own decorations like that....  centerpieces, chair bows???  i might skip out on the chair bows and concentrate on the table decor, but i change my mind every day so who knows! ha! 

       

      i feel like i should be planning more, but it is so hard with out knowing exactly how many people will be there... so far we have 38 people booked and still counting... we are estimating about 50 or so guests total... 

       

      happy planning everyone! :)


      now sapphire riviera cancun - february 19, 2011 - 63 booked :)

          I am bringing my own centerpieces. 5....yes 5 glass vases, with real touch flowers and rocks for the vaces. Also bring my own chair sashes. I found awsome ones online for .70 per. Much cheaper then the resorts. I am bring 50 paper lanters as well. My own rose petals, as well as starfish for each plate.

           

          My centerpieces look actaully like the picture below. I think the picture below is real touch flowers as well, they look so similar. Same trumpet vaces too. The resort wanted 100 pertable. I bought everything for under 100 at hobbly lobby

            wow!!! that looks awesome!!!!!!!!! so so pretty! you are inspiring me, and the more i think about it the more i want to bring my own stuff for the centerpieces....

             

            how are you getting the glass vases to mexico?!? are you going to do organza overlays on the tables or anything??? i found a website that sells pretty cheap organza and tulle materials so i might order from there.  are you having a lot of guests?  we are planning for around 50ish so i'm up in the air about the chair bows....

              I'm worried about timing of the ceremony / pictures / reception as far as sunlight, etc goes. I only have my videographer and photographer for 5 hours and I'm trying to fit everything in, but we can't start our reception until 6p.

               

              What are y'all doing??

                      I am going to make little boxes for each one similar to a wine bottle/box. And put them in a suit case. I will probably send some decor with my parents and some with my FI's parents. It will be a pain, but so worth it.
