Hey Amanda-

 

I had two bolts of organza, 25 yards each. They just draped each over the gazebo, and it seemed like a perfect fit, with even some left over. So, you should be good with your 40 yard bolt. I would cut it in half, just use two, 20 yards each. I'm including a picture so you can hopefully get a better idea of how mine looked. I didn't go to the Wal-Mart in Cancun, sorry!

Hi Kaela, Amanda or anyone else reading, 

 

Could you send me a copy of whatever letters you sent in advance or gave (or will give) to your guests when they arrived, in a welcome bag or whatever?  And for those already married, is there anything else you wished you added to your letters...  tips about the resort?  gillianr718 @ gmail.com

 

Thanks!!!

Hey girls-

 

Thought I would include the letter I sent to my guests here, as a pdf, so everyone could see it whenever they want! I sent this a couple of weeks before we left for the trip. I would include maybe a note about the dress code, I forgot to add that.

 

I'm a big DIY person, so I pretty much made all the stationery for the wedding. Everything from table cards, to ceremony programs, to menus, to schedules in the OOT bags. If was super easy, and so much cheaper than hiring a stationer. It's a great way to save some money!

Thanks everyone!!  I think I will just "wing it" when I get to Mexico and pray I can find something at WalMart to decorate with.  I had the same problem with WalMart's website a few weeks ago when I tried to shop on their site.  I copied Kaela's letter and attached Azul's Fact Sheet (which includes information about the dress code) and a map of Azul for each of my guests.  I have attached them below as well.

I keep trying to open this letter but it tells me I don't have permission. Is anyone else having this problem? Kaela...you are a lifesaver...I cannot wait to read all of this -- you have no idea how helpful it is. Thank you!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
