      Good news about not having to put anything down! We are planning a civil ceremony =) I have heard that alot of people get married at like City Hall or somewhere before they go on their actual Destination Wedding. Does this just make it easier in terms of paperwork when they come back to the states? Sorry if this is a dumb question! haha

         anudrm & dzaccaria!!   Best wishes for planning!! :)

       

      Dz - I actually looked at using Teresa Stauring for our TA, and she seemed amazing, but we decided to just go directly through MP since my mom has a membership there.  Our guests will book on the website link they provided us.  (2 have already booked using this)   I'm also doing a complimentary wedding, and we didn't have to put anything down.  Are you doing a civil or symbolic ceremony?

        From my personal experience that part is the most frustrating, trying to get ppl to check out the website. Even if people checked out our website half of them didn't pay attention to the page about how to book and just called me or called our TA. It sucks because we put all the effort into making a website which was to help the guests but they don't pay attention to the details! 

         

        Anyway we are sending out postcards with a reminder about checking the website for booking details and to RSVP but on the opposite side it's a STD for our AHR.  My sister makes everything for me, very lucky! ok I cant figure out how to attach the pictures if you want I can e-mail them to you!

         

        It might be tacky but I post a lot of reminders on Facebook just saying "remember to check the website RSVP's are due soon". We initially put a RSVP date of November 1st because that was 3 months prior to our wedding date but now I'm just saying payments are due 30 days prior if someone asks.

        I haven't had many people look at our website so far, even though we sent the invitations 3 weeks ago.  I know this because when people ask me about hotel info, l say, "Have you looked at our website?" And their answer is "Uhhhh...."  Haha.  This troubles me because bookings need to be paid in FULL by mid Dec in order to count towards our bookings, apparently!  Eeeeek!

         

        So, the FI and I have decided to send out fun postcards to everyone as a "reminder" to check our site, while keeping it fun.  One side will have our old Cancun treasure map on it that we used as the background for our invitations, and the other side will be the postcard message. 

         

        I'm thinking that the message will say something like:

         

        What treasure have you found on our website yet?

        - Easy hotel booking

        - New Packing List page!

        - Test out your Spanish skills...

        - All travel info you need

         

        Then list the website and password.   I'm thinking though that it may not be enough incentive for them to look at the website NOW.  So I was thinking of adding an RSVP deadline on there - maybe November 20th or something??  What do you think would entice them to look at our website without being all "Look at our website NOW" LOL!!! 

         

          <--- without the angry face!  :)

          Well I have been a busy beaver @ work printing since 6:45a. This gave me until 8 am to print.  I started with the easy things first, and then tried (successfully) my hand at something new.  So, with this Friday and last, I am now finished printing all of the items that I had in my external hard drive marked "DIY Finished but not Printed" and was able to move these files to my "Finished DIY" folder.  Here are pictures of some of the easy projects that I had to print out.  Several Items not shown

           

          Our Guest DND signs (pictures of front and back), & our Re-Print of our 1st Aid Kits (last week the butterflies were flying off the page LOL;-)

          My new printing project consisterd of our Welcome Booklet (will not show).  But what I did that I have never done before was to cut the paper first instead of after.  I only did 2 sheets and it came out perfect.  So now I will pre-cut all of our pages for the welcome book before printing.  Then I will come in early on a Friday to print this out.  Since our booklet is 8 pages, this will be the only thing that I print that morning.

           

          TGIF & Happy DIYing

            My FI & I are planning to have a very small ceremony at home for his Grandma, who chose not to fly. I have read of several brides on this forum who have mention that they have gotten married at home prior to leave.

             

            Personally I know of a couple who got married Oct of 2010 and it took them over 6 month to get things straight  with their marriage license.

             

            So I would definitely discuss it with your FI and do research & ask question.

                      Yay CoCo!!!! I love your templates, hubby would have not gone for the butterflies, how did you get that in.  I love the colors, do you have a circle cutter for your DND signs, I recommend Friskars free hand, it's AWESOME!
