To print our keycards & luggage tags I used "Avery Name Badge Insert Refills #5390) which I purchased either from Staples or office depot.  You simply download the template (for free) which is included in the box and go from there.  You are able to do 8 per page (4 on each side) and they also have those that you can do 5 or 6 on each side but of course they would not be as wide.  Again for these you can do them double sided, however; our old canon wouldn't allow it as they would stick together.  So I simply printed on one side, and then the other.  Perfect Alignment and no drinks needed.  :-)

Thanks so much! It was by far an easy project but  a little difficult to get the raffia ribbon through the damn holes of the fan LOL  I ended up using the point of my scissors and viola.

This does sound like a great idea.  I'm definitely not using the resort for my bridesmaid bouquets and was thinking of going the silk flower route.  This sounds like a good idea though.  So does this mean you will be putting together your bouquets yourself at the resort?

My bachelorette party in AZ was an absolute blast.  I had a girly day with my MOH and we got our blow out and style for our hair and then went to Sephora and had a full face makeover.  Loved that!  Then, we painted our nails and the girls came over to her house.  All took a taxi to a great sushi place in downtown Scottsdale that is also a bar/club at night.  Then, we went to one of my favorite clubs there and danced for like 4 hours straight!!  No drama, all fun, and the girls were totally into it for a good time.  They said it was the best bachelorette party they'd been to!

 

Bridal shower was fantastic as well!  My girls and Mom did a fabulous job planning.  The theme was Mexican Christmas (since it was on Dec 28), and we had Mexican food, decorations, and they even made me wear a decorated sombrero, LOL!  Fun games, great gifts, it was fantastic.

 

And - dun, dun, dun, DUN!  We got married at the courthouse on the 27th!!  We still occasionally joke and put in the "wife" or "husband" word to each other and then say, "Shhhhh!"  Since it's a secret.  And we don't want to take away from our big day in Mexico!  But that was really special.  My Granny, who is 90 and definitely could not travel to Cancun, was there and it was wonderful.  I'll always have her signature on our marriage certificate!  And Gran and I went out to one of my favorite restaurants to celebrate afterwards (Casey had to go straight to the airport to fly back home for work). 

 

YAY!!!   thewave.gif

 

All that said, I've still been DIYing my tooshie off and will post more projects soon.  For now, I'll post some pics of the FABULOUSLY STUNNING jewelry that Chelsea from Red-I made me that I adore to pieces!!!  I had my 2nd fitting for my dress today (will post these pics, too), and the jewelry matches perfectly!!  To anyone wondering what jewelry they will wear on their wedding day, or if you're thinking of buying your bridesmaids their jewelry for a gift, I can't recommend Chelsea enough.  She's been the most enjoyable part of this whole wedding process for me!  Professional, extremely savvy with her work, and a joy to work with!  Thanks, Chelsea!  <3

 

Enjoy!  Will post more pics soon.  :)   Only 35 more days until the Big Day for me!!!

ndividul!You look absolutely PERFECT!!! Congratulations on your (shhhhh...) wedding! Eric and I did the same thing and trust me, your big day in Mexico will be exactly what it's supposed to be...an incredible wedding that will feel like the first time you've said "I do"!

 

I'm so happy you had a fabulous shower and bachelorette party! The Mexican Christmas theme sounds adorable! As far as your bachelorette, dancing unti you can't stand anymore is the best way to do it :)

 

I know there are many options to choose from when deciding on accessories, so I'm so glad you chose me :) I had such a great time discussing all of the details that went into your custom collection! I appreciate your trust, confidence and willingness to allow me to design jewelry that is so important for both you and your girls. I'm so excited for you and can't wait to see the photos of you glowing on your big day! If that's how you look on a non-wedding day...WATCH OUT!! woot.gif

 

Definitely keep in touch and thank you Thank YOU for such sweet words and sharing your experience! XOXO

Hi Coconoir. I see that you are using a travel agent to book your group bookings instead of Moon Palace. Would you recommend this over asking them directly?
I have family from Canada, USA and other locations booking and I'm note sure what would be best, a travel agent or directly through Moon Palace...

Here is the email Janina sent to me today.  I also confirmed with my TA since my group contract is directly between Liberty Travel & Moon Palace. 

 

Good afternoon Ms. Chanel,

The way we know you get amenities is because of the amount of nights you reach with your room contract sign.

If you are entitle to a cocktail party we will cover the 1 hour cocktail, private area, open bar and appetizers, you wont have to pay this in advance because you have reach the nights required as per contract.

If you wish additional services like flowers, decorations etc, this will be additional.

A wedding planner will be helping you with all your event arrangements and payments for services.

Regards J

Janina
