Have you done a site visit? We hadn't seen it when we booked it but we happened to have a trip planned for Cancun a couple of weeks ago so we stopped by and absolutely loved it. Thank God! It was nice to get those jitters out of the way! Our ceremony will take place at sunset, which I think is around 4:30 in February. The terraces are definitely the way to go with the receptions! Our wedding will actually be pretty small....not sure how many people will be traveling, but we are doubting that we will have more than 35, or else we might have thought about doing the reception on the beach as well. Are you planning on having a big group? When are you telling people the deadline is for reservations?

we actually haven't done a site visit! we wanted to but with work and everything we just couldnt find the time off, our best friends went on their honeymoon there so they actually told us about the place (at the time it was the paradisus) but they loved everything about it.  i'm so glad to hear that you guys loved it as well! so far we have about 34 people booked including the two of us with more people booking, so i am not exactly sure how many people will end up coming, if i had to guess i'd say maybe around 50 or so (if everyone who says they are going books) i haven't told anyone a deadline yet for reservations, i actually haven't even thought about that! ha!  when are you sending out your invitaitons, i feel like i need to get them out fairly soon since it is a destination... i feel like i should be doing more planning but i guess everyone says the details are planned out more towards the date. i have my dress already and bridesmaid dresses, and i'm working on some decorations and getting the out of town bags together... we have 5 months to go! :)

Well that's good that you have people on top of booking even though you haven't sent out invites yet! I haven't sent out the invitations but I have a feeling that people won't even consider booking until then...and it'll be so expensive by then! We have a block of rooms booked for those that we know for sure are coming, so I guess everyone else will just be on their own! I think we will probably be sending out invitations sometime next month, but I haven't even decided on that yet. I actually have a wedding planner here that is doing a lot of the details for me and keeping me on a schedule but I know what you mean. I still feel like there is so much that should be done now even though maybe it doesn't need to be! I have my dress too...but no bridesmaid dresses yet since one is preggers and due next month! Good for you on getting those welcome bags together...I have a feeling those will be very last minute for me! 5 months seems sooo far away but I bet it'll fly by!

 

What are you doing for your colors? Are you having a really beach-y theme?

i sent out save the dates and created a wedding website so that our guests can get a head start on planning if they could come or not, i know its hard to ask a lot of people to travel so we just tried to give them as much time as possible to plan out and decide of they can come.  there are still a bunch who want to go but haven't booked yet, but the longer they wait the more expensive it will be (esp. for airfare), we have a room rate but its only good for a certain amout of time, so i guess we will see what happens once the invitations go out.  i still have to pick invitations but i have narrowed it down to a few.  that is awesome that you have a wedding planner there!!  i'm sure that is super helpful.  i haven't actually put any of the out of town bags together yet, ha! but i have a list of things that i plan on putting them in and i know the actual bags that i'm going to use. 5 months seems so far, but you are right it is going to fly! especially with the holidays in between!   as for my colors, the girls are wearing kind of a bright royal blue color, so that and greens are the color scheme i am going with.  i havent really decided on favors or anything like that, it might be something beachy but i'm not going super beachy with the theme. 

 

have you decided on chair bows and flowers and centerpieces and stuff?

Hello ladies i"m really considering the Sapphire as well. I haven't singed anything yet but I think that it's just hesitation. Can I ask if either of you has the wedding book for Sapphire? I think seeing all the options would make me more comfortable with finalizing.
