Krista's Planning Thread!

Recommended Posts

I want to start my thread by saying thank you to all the lovely ladies who make this forum a success and especially to Tammy for starting this all! This is such a great idea and you have helped so many brides!

 

I have met so many wonderful people on here who I never would have met otherwise. I want to say a special thank you to my Feb brides and my SB ladies who have helped me so much in these last few months – you ladies hold a special place in my heart! Without the support of you all I donâ€t think I would have made it through this whole process without freaking out! We will be getting married July 10, 2010 at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa in the Mayan Riviera.

 

My engagement story: My FI came to Korea four months after I moved there to teach English. He proposed on the first night he was there. I was so shocked since he had purposely thrown me off the idea of getting engaged since he wanted it to be a surprise. My reaction was "Are you serious?" and he still teases me about that to this day! LOL! :)

 

Here are some of the details:

My invitations were DIY (bought the boxes of them at Staples and Michaels) and I printed/decorated them myself:

Our rings: My engagement ring was designed by my FI and made by his dad (who is a jewellery maker), and my wedding band was custom made by his dad to fit my e-ring. FIâ€s ring was purchased and a few changes were made by his dad to suit FIâ€s tastes.

My photographer is coming from “home†with us. She is actually from Louisiana so we have never met. Itâ€s a long story, but our original photographer from Louisiana was recommended by a good friend of ours who we met in South Korea. She got pregnant and her due date is 3 weeks before our wedding, so she found another substitute to go in her place. It actually worked out perfectly because I love the new photographers style and Iâ€m super excited to meet her and work with her! Her site is Kaylynn Marie Photography

 

For our ceremony, itâ€s a legal one, but we are adding our own vows and we are having a hands reading. The ceremony will be all white (chairs and gazebo) with just dark pink petals on the walkway.

Since we have a small group coming with us (13 people), we are opting for the free wedding package that dreams offers.

We are going to buy Maracas once we are down there for favours, and also to bring back as favours for our AHR, which will be quite large (100 people) who couldnâ€t come to Mexico.

 

Invitations for AHR:

This is my centerpiece inspiration I will use for our AHR. I will use hot pink roses and use our wedding colour ribbons to decorate the square vases. Then there will be votives around them.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
