Hey Ladies! Hope you all had a fun weekend! Back to work and planning for me! I was thinking of doing an engraved shot glass for everyone too, but am concerned of getting them over there all in one piece. We can ship them prior to us arriving, but we'll see. Also, I can just see after a few too many shots or drinks half of my friends/family leaving the shot glasses there or something. Wouldn't want that to happen! I'd love to do a OTB, but not sure if that is in the budget or not. We'll see. I do love your maraca idea though Lauren! I will post what I decide to do and add a pic too.
Now that we have the date set I am picking the save the date cards, finalizing the guest list and narrowing down colors. So far I really like this deep teal blue that I saw on The Knot. I need to pick accent colors to go with. I'm thinking the deep teal color will look great with the sun shining and the ocean in the background.
I have our photographer booked and they will travel with us to Cabo.... thankfully! Is anyone doing a "Trash the Dress" shoot with their photographer? I saw pics online (link below) ... I love it and want to do this the day after. http://whereinthewor...-mexico-weddin/
There is so much to think about and do now that we are confirmed for our date. I am not sure where we will have the reception. Do any of you know if there is a price difference between having the reception at the Mexican Terrace or the Patio? I predict around 50 or so people will attend the wedding/reception. I want to make sure to have room for dancing etc. Is anyone planning on bringing or hiring a DJ for your reception? I am going to look into it and see what the cost looks like. My FI and I LOVE to dance and so do my friends and family so getting a DJ for the reception is a possibility ....I will post what I find out about a DJ.
Are any of you taking a trip to the hotel before your wedding date? I'm not sure if we will, but I'd love to because I want to know what the receptions options look like in person. My friend who is helping me with the planning assures me that any choice I make at the RIU will be a good one because the location is so beautiful! I am counting on that to be true.
