    Only 17 days until our wedding. and we depart for Akumal next Sunday. Holy crap I have a lot to do. Any ideas on signature cocktails? Do you think I should type up a menu? (we are buying our own liquor). Also, is it necessary for a program? Can I skip that? I still need to create table numbers, select flowers, etc. I don't know what will look nice and I'm feeling overwhelmed. I also need to give me videographer a cd with a few songs for the video. I'd love input on all of these items. And we have 104 guests total including us. I think we are going to take over Akumal - this is crazy! Please help you lovely ladies!

        We made 70 program and came home with 40. If you make them, just make half. Menus are not needed (I don't think)

        Focus on table seating and your flowers...

        Best of Luck!

          WOW. 104 guest? What a great turn out. I agree with the girls. Table numbers, MAYBE menus (but only if you have time) are important. Just have fun and don't stress too much. Do the things most important to you and if you have time, knock some other things out. I really don't think programs are that important, but that's just me. Good luck!

            I definitely think you can skip the programs and menus. They are just going to catch in the wind or clutter up your pretty table setting anyways.

            I'm so excited that you're day is almost here. I know that everything will go well for you!

              I woke up today asking the same thing. I find myself with so much little things to do. I've gone back in forth about the programs, I think I'm gonna skip them also

                I agree with previous posters... don't use this time to worry about the small stuff like programs! Maybe you can get someone to help you with it, otherwise scrap it. You have plently of other things to deal with. 104 people- you guys will have a blast! Enjoy.

                BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!

                  Thank you all!! I think you are right. I am going to skip the programs, menus, drink menus etc. I'll get my flower order going and then just relax (get my hair died, buy makeup, mani-pedi, etc..) there is still a lot of primping isn't there? Thanks ladies!!
