YAY!  So that sparked me to do something at or welcome dinner which will be to have a gift for the 1st person that turned in their RSVP card, and the longest traveled guest (which will be my soon to be niece that's hailing all the way from Japan). 

     

    Have a good one.

        SDamian1 has been on here for a while ;-)  She gets married at 2, I'm at 5 and your at 6.  How about that line-up.  However; we are missing 5 other MP brides as our day is booked. 

        I had (prior to you joining) extended an invitation to those brides that will be at MP during the same week, to put on their wedding dress and come to my reception so that we can all take pictures on post on this forum.  Something that hasn't been done before, well in my research on this site LOL.  The line-up for our week kicks off with:

         

        Merryless 4/17

        Summerdawn 4/19

        Beatyea 4/20

        Sdamian 4/21

        Coconoir (me) 4/21

        YWS2012 (you) 4/21

         

        What a great photo op that would be.....  if I forgot anyone that week please charge it to my head that's full of DIY versus my heart.

          YAY, a good friend of mine just called to tell me that she "booked her trip" cheer2.gifHow awesome is that!  To date we now have 20 rooms (including FI and I) but not counting FI's brother who booked through Travelocity (ugh).  We hope to at least secure at least 8-10 more bookings (although we only need 5 to secure the free events) we want 8-10 just in case someone doesn't go and surrender their deposit.

           

          Prayers going up for more bookings....

              Leenancy I didn't do anything special. On our website I listed the room categories & rates, made a cute page with this info for those that didn't have a computer (older guest), & made sure booking was easy as possible. Most will simply go with the flow cuz they know I'm organized etc. and it's easy for them to call one person Ryan to try to manage this on their own. I also on my site told them that if they stayed offsite they had to pay $88 (we were not footing that bill). And I made sure that FI understood why people need to book with out TA versus anyone else. I also made sure he understood & was able to explain to his friends & family the benefits if staying on site versus offsite & that the day pass was only good for the day of the wedding. FI's brother is the one tray booked thru Travelocity but still for MP. I know his other brothers & step mom will do the same (if they go) so I won't even think of getting them in our numbers.

                    Wow what a good feeling!  I just posted something on the MP 2011 thread, but I have a concern with more than 20% of my guests possibly booking at other resorts. It sounds like all your guests are booking at MP, you lucky girl... any advice for how I can get more of my guests to consider MP as opposed to other resorts?

You ladies have done an amazing job with yours! I am between doing passports or something in a box set..not sure yet though :( One thing I DID get checked off my list is my wedding dress!!

                       

                      I only tried on a total of ten dresses and found the one! I suspected all along I would go with Rivini and sure enough that was the winner!

                       

                      I think I am going with the Mexican dinner how about you?
