@@Johnsonspartyof2 This is where the exciting part of your wedding planning begins! Once you've settled on the date and booking it! I remember being nervous about sending my credit card information via email.  And I asked for a fax # but I think I was very anxious to book the date I ended up scanning front and back of my credit card and just emailing everything to get it over and done with.  Anel emailed me back that they had received everything and that they will process the payment.  I didn't have any problems with my card.

@@Johnsonspartyof2 No problems with sending all the info via email, including credit card and my ID. I was more anxious/nervous about securing the date because I wanted to move forward with my room booking as there was a special promo going on at the time and it was the very last day of it.  It all worked out just fine.

Thank you both very much for that, I feel better now.

Did you make your paper products (STD's, Invitations, Programs, Etc)? Also if you did what printer did you use? I am pretty sure I have to purchase a new one for these projects. I've been researching printers all day. I am sure I will dream of printers tonight  :lol:

Hey guys! I am new to this thread and getting married at Now Sapphire on August 3rd. Just finalized all the details! Would love to join in on the planning :) I stalked this whole thread and have been researching this resort for months. I visited the resort this past August along with Dreams and preferred this one! I am doing a beach ceremony and having my reception on the tequila terrace. We are looking to have 40-60 guests. So excited!

Oh cool, the resort is beautiful I fell in love with it when we checked it out! I am a little nervous about the wedding planning though, I just hope that I can bring enough of my own stuff to decorate and get all of the extras I want without it being too expensive...

 

We had our engagement photos done this past August while we were vacationing at the new breathless resort, adventures photos did them for us and I think they turned out great! Most likely I will just use them for the photos that are included in our divine package I'm curious as to what the video includes..

Just finished my 48 hour marathon on reading this thread.  Thanks to all past, present, and future brides for all your contributions.  Getting married on Feb 3, 2017 at Sapphire with Juan Carlo as WC.  With 60 people attending we are in a crunch with identifying what is important to us vs. how much we want to spend (and yikes, the costs add up quickly).  Sad we could not get the Tequila Terrance and will be having our reception at the Preferred Pool.  However, some of the reviews of the Preferred Pool are encouraging. 

 

Pending Decisions:

1) Timeline - trying to find a balance to not having the guests wait too long between the ceremony and cocktail hour so we can do pictures (Putting our trust in the Resort Photographer that they will get some decent shots.)

  - Question:  does any past Bride have any recommended photo shoot locations? 

2) Food:  Sit-down platted meal vs. Buffet?  (we have over 50 ppl so buffet is an option)

3) Music:  Bring our own (Pro: saves cost  Con: someone has to man it)  vs DJ  (Pro: convenience  Con: Costs)

4) Table Size:  I'm thinking round vs rectangle (we have 60 ppl attending)

5)  Table decor:  we are going bear bones and not bring lots of decoration, but a big white table with white napkins just might be too dull.  Do I need a center piece?

 

I'm sure i'll be posting more as the time gets closer.  I am starting to get a bit stressed about this.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
