But I'm not the type of person to email or call constantly either. I usually email her about once a month (if that) with a list of questions. I have the wedding location but that's it we will discuss cocktail hour on Friday. Not sure about reception just yet if we don't get the unlimited events then we will just have the dinner and go to the bar afterwards. My future MIL is planning a huge AHR a few weeks after we get back so we can have the "reception" part then. It's really not a big deal to me.

 

For me the big deal is the exchange of the vows in Texas before we leave. My FI and I are going to get married here the weekend before we leave. It's going to just be the 2 of us, our kids and a family friend who will actually marry us. Not sure if any of you are familiar with Texas A&M University but they have a huge live oak tree on campus they call the "Century Tree". According to an old Aggie legend, if two lovers pass beneath the tree's large, vine-like branches, they are destined to be wed. Similarly, if a couple becomes engaged under the Century's picturesque leaves, the marriage will last forever. My FI is an Aggie so when I proposed this option versus a church he was stoked! I didn't want a huge wedding with a ton of people hence the reason we are planning Mexico, I would have been happy going to the JP but he's somewhat of a romantic and wanted some kind of a ceremony to appease his parents. So the intimate ceremony here is for me and the Mexico wedding is for him.

 

Here's a picture of the tree itself. I think it will be perfect for when we say "I do".

  Yes the stamps were actually in the dollar bin and that is why I picked them up and than didn't know what to stamp lol. But they also have them in the aisle with all the stamps and ink pads. I wish I had other things to stamp ;) because it looks so cute. I used different shaped tags for different things. i did the bubbles with them and the pashmina tags also. The tags are awesome for almost anything you want to do but sometimes the perforation is a little hard to tear perfectly but it beats spending tons of money on tags that people are not even going to care about lol.

I was told by my sales rep, Michelle Farinas,  that Ivis Hitchcock is my wedding planner.  Michelle mentioned that she was out sick and would be contacting me upon her return..That was Monday.  Now it Thursday.  Since I need to be about a million steps ahead of the game, I would like to email Ivis.  Granted, she may still be out sick, but I still want to try and reach her.  I know some of you ladies have been working with her (and also mentioning her lack of timely responses).  If someone could provide me with her email address, I would greatly appreciate it!

Okay ladies sorry to bring up the set-up costs again but Beatriz just sent me an email telling me that it will cost $100/table of set up fees AND $50 PER PERSON for dinner for a private function if we do not qualify for a free private function.  She even sent me a spread sheet with these numbers written on them.  Here is a link to the spread sheet. (hope it works!)

If this is true I will be very unhappy as I was under the understanding that it would in no way be that expensive! Goodness!

    • Congrats on finding the perfect person for you! Love is a journey of patience and time Where are you guys planning on getting married?
    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?
