Love love LOVE these!!! I think you should send them just the way they are - it's a charming postcard, and an envelope might detract from it (may make it look more formal than it should too). Plus, if you're concerned with postage marks, you can always get Zazzle stamps - they'll do them with your monogram, beachy themes, etc. &, the post office won't mark these. Anyway, just my opinion - but great job!! I'm starting to wish I did a postcard!

Here are my proofs!  I was just going to send the postcards without an envelope, do you think that would be a problem?

My FI & I are getting married at Excellence Playa Mujeres in Mexico. They have most of their wedding pricingpackages on their site. We have been to this resort twice & absolutely love it. I would definitely recommend it!  Happy Planning!!

Hi ladies! So I REALLY want to be an April 2012 bride but haven't confirmed anywhere yet (mostly because the resort hasn't gotten back to us)! I'm getting really anxious that I don't have a date or resort picked. I was originally really concerned with the cost for the guests but I feel like there isn't a ton I can do about that right now. So where I'm at right now is finding the resort that I like and booking a wedding date with them.  We have a TA but its my FI mother and I believe she's a little newer to it.  What are the next steps after confirming with the resort your wedding date? I'm working on the STD to send out as soon as we have the date. Oh and I'm also working on our website but I feel like there is just soooo much to do!!! 

Questions:

1. Am I supposed to book a bunch of rooms at the resort for my guests? (How can I do this if I don't know who all will actually go?)

2. Do guests typically book with my travel agent or do they find their own rates?

3.  Should I be really concerned about the airfare that comes out for April 2012 right now for Jamaica or will it go down in a few months?

 

Thanks in advance to any helpful suggestions etc!

Happy planning!

I just bit the bullet and decided on April 13th, 2012.  Superstitions be damned!  I've been working on my website all week, it is a lot more work than I thought it would be!  My fiance is a web developer so we are building one from scratch.  One feature I decided to add is a 'Random Fun Fact' about the couple on the homepage, so that each time you visit there will be a new piece of trivia.  Do you think that sounds weird?  Next up, I need to find a photographer!  Have you all decided who you are using? I'm deciding between La Luna and Nate (Broshot).

Congrats on picking your date!!! My website took forevvvverrrrr I feel like to get it the way we wanted and adequate travel info uploaded (and that's using a template), but I'm sure yours will look great - I like the trivia - sounds uniquely fun!

 

I did a LOT of research on photographers - Ivan Luckie and La Luna were among the top picks, but we ended up going with Juan Jose from Del Sol! Good luck with whoever you choose!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
