We are expecting about 40 people....I never thought so many people would be able to make it! Tomorrow it'll officially be just one year away! Time is going to FLY!!!!! We now have 24 people booked, it's so fun getting the update from our TA at the end of each day with who booked!

That's awesome Katie! My wedding is before yours and despite people having had the trip info for over a month and a half now, no one has booked despite telling me that they will.  How is it that I know so many procrastinators?

People just get caught up in what they are doing. I have some that are even just keeping the money in their savings (they just saved their tax returns for the trip) and they want to leave it in the account so that it can make money for them throughout this year. I can at least respect that. It is very frustrating though! Makes it hard to plan OOT bags and such when you really have no clue who is going.

We put a pretend deadline on our information :) We gave them a full month of guaranteed rates and told them we wouldn't know how prices would change after the deadline. So far, it's worked out great!! Of course, we do know how prices will change....but we figured all they needed to do in order to book was a $150 deposit per person, so we pushed them to just get that done!

tkuzma- As I have said before I am in the same boat. I think only 1 person has called out TA to inquire about booking. I spoke with our wedding planner/TA a couple days ago and she suggested that she would send out an e-mail to out guests introducing herself and encourage to book soon. She also agreed to call our guests who don't have e-mail. She will also be keeping a list for us of confirmed guests!

 

I am really thankful that she is willing to do this and it takes the stress away from me :). Perhaps this is an option for others as well?

My favorite e-mail of the day is always the one from our TA with our updated guest list! She generally sends it at the end of my day, so i'm always looking for it! I hope you both can get guests booking soon, it's a very fun process!

I think we should definitely make a May 2013 thread! We can see what people  are doing in the planning process and gather information that is useful to all of the May brides, such as weather/ sunrise/ set times, etc.

Hello.  I am a March 2013 bride at Grand Palladium Jamaica.  Can anyone tell me who you used for a TA?  I have started with one, but I am wondering if I should go with Destination Weddings.  Any thoughts?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
