     Pineapple: It would be greaat to share florist! That would make three of us getting married in May, In Cancun and with the same florist!!! I love it!! Try her web.

      Hi girls,


      2 other gals and myself, who are getting married at the Azul Sensatori the first week in May have teamed up with a photographer out of Florida.  We had a fourth with the date of May 6th but she hasn't replied to us in a while.  So, we are keeping our options open, and looking to see if we can find a 4th who's interested in a great deal.  PM me for details.  :o)

          Ladies, this is my latest project that I've been working on - my photo sharing postcards.  I don't know yet how we will distribute them but we'll get them out some kind of way.  I've also designed and ordered some of my bridesmaids shirts to wear while we're getting dressed for the ceremony or at some point during the trip.  Now I just need to work on the invitations - I'm looking for a vector or graphic design that I love.  Oh, I ordered a flip book of our engagement pictures to go on the guest sign in table from Vista Print too since we're going to do the white board well wishes as a guest book.  I designed some bridesmaids hats but I don't know if I want to use them.  Tell me what you think!


          The best thing about all of this is that I got everything for FREE, or close to it - $2.66 for the ladies' t-shirts- from Vista print and only needed to pay for shipping.

              I've just received my invitations!  I'll post pictures when I have a chance :) I love them!!!


              I sent my Save the Dates at the beginning of June.  We have an early bird booking deadline of November 15/10 and the final booking is end of Feb/beginning of March.


              I'm also including an insert about our at home reception and our response cards request an RSVP to both events. 


              I am aiming to send them out at the beginning of November and asking for an RSVP by January 31/10.  The problem is I want to make sure people know about the booking deadlines (which are also on our website) for the wedding fairly early BUT I really really don't want to send another invite about the reception, so we're asking for a response about that as well.   I know it seems very early to send out an invite for the reception, but I don't see another way around it!


              How is everyone else tackling this problem?

                Hi everybody...Its been a while since I posted last. I have sent out our std's about 1mth ago. I found my dress yesterday and we are shooting our engagement pics tues. I am working on alot of DIY projects. I finished the boarding pass STD's...currently working on our passport invites. I have also ordered our OOT bags...finished the first aid kit template,luggage tag inserts and key card holder inserts. I hope to have invites out by early nov. with a january 15 deadline. This site is so addicting, I have gotten all my templates and mant ideas from here.

                  Not sure for my reception shoes yet, they are something ive not looked for yet but is on my list 2 do soon, Was going to do OOT but not sure i keep changing my mind on this so watch this space.....

                  How far along are you? Got any pix :-)


                  Your dress is really pretty! How hard was it to make the barefoot sandals? I was thinking of doing that for my bridesmaids and myself also.

                      Melly - I'm sending out a separate invite for the AHR simply for 2 reasons, 1. we aren't telling people we are having one yet so they don't use that as an excuse not to go to Mexico, and 2. because we only invited a select few to Mexico anyway so we have to make more invites anyway.


                      Nan - those shoes are cute....here are my shoes, the first pair are similar to those actually, I'm not sure about them yet, I was going to go barefoot but my whole wedding party towers over me (I'm 5'2) but I'll definitely be wearing the green ones for the reception.
