I'm Amy and my wedding is June 10, 2011 at the Del Mar. I'm so excited to talk to you all.. just reading about all your plans has helped me so much! I probably would have asked zero questions and just emailed that form back that karla sends when you book.. there's so much more to this than people realize!
We've only been engaged since the holidays and so far we just booked the basic (forget what that one's called) package and planned to add on a private reception and cocktail hour, only now I wonder if the cocktail hour is needed since the ceremony isn't until 5 pm..? Does anyone have the same timeline? I would love to still do it and maybe have the mariachis play but don't know if its a tight squeeze.
We did magnet save the dates that we ordered locally and the bm dresses and my dress is ordered. I booked DJ Doremixx (yay!) and ordered invites from wedding paper divas. We're working with a TA and so far our group rate is sooo much cheaper than packages our guests have found.
Hannah, congrats on losing 15lbs!! I read that you were trying a high protein diet.. would you mind sending me the details? I am really struggling.. I actually lost a bunch of weight a few years ago and it wasn't that hard once I got in the gym and cut back on food, but now I know it's going to take more to lose that last 10 or so!
And Kelly, do not let anyone make you feel like the dw is selfish! Haven't we all been at that huge wedding and barely spoke to the bride and groom? This is so much more intimate for the people there with you.. I do hair so I speak to so many women every day and they all tell me the best advice is to enjoy it and not expect everyone to be happy. It's your day!!
Look forward to chatting with you all soon!
