    Boarding Pass -- Thanks for Booking/Info Brochure

    Thank you to Coco & Jamie for the templates!!  I love how they turned out!

     

    Got some glitter sets from Martha & her glue pen.... added the teal glitter for the perforations on the front to give it some pizazz!

    The brads are compasses (of course)! :)

    The paper is beach sand.

    Luggage Tags ---- these will be sent out with the boarding passes.  For couples, I'll have one of each of the designs - Beach and Palm Tree.  Which design is your fave? :)

      HI Ladies,

       

      I'm new to this blog, but I'm very excited to see someone decided to make this forum!  I'm going to be a 2012 bride at the Moon Palace as well.  We have our date, our rooms and our flights booked.  Now we're just playing the waiting game for our guests to book their trips.  Our wedding is in June and we're having a casual party back home after the wedding in July. 

       

      Right now, I'm just looking for information on what to expect for the wedding at the resort.  According to the contract, the on-site coordinator won't get in touch with us until 30 days before the wedding and I'm concerned about a few things.  We're getting married in one of the gazebos and I'm wondering about the lighting.  I don't want it to be dark under the gazebo since it provides so much shade.  I'm also beginning to think about details and things we can save money on by bringing with us like the bridesmaid and groomsmen flowers, centerpieces and any other things we want.  I'm sure they will be expensive to buy from the resort.  I'm looking forward to talking to you all about the wedding plans.

       

      BTW, those boarding pass invitations are really nice and I like the luggage tags!  They look amazing!

        I used 3 different types of paper:  Beach sand-looking paper (BPs) & teal cardstock from Hobby Lobby (BP jackets) & antique treasure map paper from Joann's!

          Oh yeah, and for the luggage tags, I used photo paper (generic Office Max brand) for the luggage tag photo side... and tan cardstock from Hobby Lobby for the name/address side. :)

              This really makes you grateful for the beautiful people in your life and all of our lives especially during the holidays when we get so busy with the hustle and bustle and forget the spirit of it all. You are marrying an amazing man and you are getting amazing in laws and in the end everything is as it should be. So happy for you.

              Anyways my fiance and I- we both make good money right now, were trying to figure out how we could make this work.  We were going to try to pay for them if his parents would maybe pay for some of the things when we got to MX (music for the reception, ect).  He went over to their house to talk to them and a little while later told me to come over too.  I guess when his dad found out that we were considering changing to a wedding back home he said "What does Natalie (me) want?  If she wants to get married in Mx we'll pay for them all to get there." 

               

              So now FI's parents, who were already paying for them, us, his brother and SIL, and his grandparents to come are paying for my parents and 3 of my 4 siblings.  As grateful as I am for them and as honored as I am that they love me so, I am just put in a hard position here.  My parents think we are the ones paying for them, but now his parents must think bad about my parents, and FI is a little upset my mom and dad didn't come to me sooner, which I understand.  My parents live on the other side of the country and now this is how FI is going to think of them- as poor people who can't support themselves instead of the hard working, loving, great parents they are who happen to run into bad luck. 

               

              But also- After all of that my FI and I sat and were talking and he said "what about your 12 and 16 year old sister and brother?  Are they getting no Christmas presents?"  He was so upset by this we decided to call my parents and tell them we will be their Santa this year.  I'm excited to go shopping   And am reminded of how much I love that man!!

               

              Sorry this got really long.  Lots of tears last night but I'm happy to say I'm still a Moon Palace Bride!  And my mom, dad, and siblings will be there- and that's all that really matters!

                ohh i love boxers. The best dogs ever. And I am waiting patiently for the update on did she or didn't she get the passport lol.

                 

                I have been MIA because I had abandoned everything for this website and my Christmas shopping was lacking biggg time lol.

                Stay tuned lol

                    Hi guys!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!

                     

                    So my TA was able to work something out which is a better deal for our Denver guests and we still get the room nights at MP.  This will lower peoples trips by up to about $500, but they have to reserve today.  But, so far with those that have booked we are at 25 nights, which is great.  The rest of my family and FI's should book today too, which would bring us to 52 nights. And that is just our family and the groomsman.  So, if we luck out and get a few of our friends to book we actually may be able to pull off 75 room nights, since so many are going to 7 nights.  If not, maybe at least 60!  I will take it!!!

                     

                    Hope everyone is having a good Monday.
