March 2011 PC brides, let's chat!

Recommended Posts

Planning is going pretty good - not much to do right now really.  Gotta love a destination wedding! - my coordinator at the resort is great.

trying to get the home town reception details down right now. 

34 people have booked and I am impressed with that number.  I know a few people will wait until later in the year.  I suspect we will have 50 (11 being children).  We have two boys so are wedding/resort is very kid friendly!!

 

SOnyaR, you got a great deal!  Mine is the 21st person free and $100 less than on line prices. 

 

I did an electronic STD and a website - I think it was a good idea as all the info is at peoples fingertips - I think it may have helped with getting people excited and getting them to book!

I wasn't going to do formal invites although I am now tossing the idea around of sending something by mail to the people that booked - maybe in January.  And to our grandmothers (who can't come).   I am leaning toward doing an evite for the hometown reception - the feedback is that people really don't care if it's email or not and everyone has email (except grandmas).  We'll see

Yahoo, people have finally started to book after sending my invites out about a month ago. Ok, so far it's only 8 of us but it's a start.

Hey there Sonya! By invites, I meant the "formal" ones.  Yes people already know and have paid all of their money, but we still want to have a formal invitation to send out to people.  Only the people who are attending will receive one though.  It is more of a tradition thing rather than an invitation to come.  Does that make more sense?

OK, I get it now. We sent out to everyone evenif we knew they were not going to go as we didn't want peopleto feel left out and also thought of it as sort of an announcement about the wedding.

 

I like your idea though and probably should have done that.

I had a total freak out today because I found out that the plane is full for our departure date except for the remaining seats I had put a deposit down for. It took alot of juggling and contacting people but we've worked most things out. Some people will have to fly out of Toronto instead of Ottawa if they still want to come.

 

I can't believe it sold out already. I should have reserved more than 20 seats but then how was I to know. Lesson learned so any future brides try and put a deposit down on as many seats as you think are coming.

We leave Saturday, March 12th and it is also spring break here for the elementary schools so I guess I shouldn't have been so shocked. Just waiting for one last guest to book our last seat we have available.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
