    <<She didn't like the idea I was giving guests two hotel choices, but I want them to decide if they want a budget hotel or a nicer one. >>

    I think that's a really good idea.  We encouraged everyone to stay with us (our contract sort of dictated that, actually) but were lucky enough that the the hotel next door was cheaper so people could stay there and still easily be a part of all of the festivities.  That being said, only one person stayed there, but it was good to have the option.


    <<She told me not to worry about the std's because they send you a pdf one with all the informationa bout the resort, the island, and everything they need to know>>

    I liked doing my own.  I didn't put any info on my Save the Date other than the dates (we had a home reception too) and the fact that the wedding would be in the Bahamas.  I hadn't decided where I was doing everything yet at that point, but I wanted to be sure people blocked off the dates and had enough time to save money if necessary.  I just did postcards, also from VistaPrint, and they looked like this:

    <<I plan to copy and paste it on to my passport style info booklet>>

    Yeah, for sure!  Passport booklets are totally awesome, I wish I had been able to do them.  I went more traditional though, just because it was easier on me.


    <<She said they don't do flights if everyone is comming from different places but if guests want to book with her they can - but the prices won't really be cheaper than what they could book online>>

    A few of my guests got some reaaaalllllly good deals through BookIt.com.  You may want to tell yours to add that site to their list of places to search.


    <<Did you post your stationary on here? I wanna see!>>

    I didn't, but here it is:

    These are obviously not to scale :)  I sent them in white pocket folds with yellow satin ribbon as belly bands. 


    <<No day is perfect! You married your love so it was amazing!>>

    This is absolutely true.  And the fact that it was a destination wedding where everyone got to vacation together was really awesome.  I wouldn't change that aspect for anything.


    <<so when they announced cars were being towed most people left and didn't come back- before we got through dinner) and I told everyone if something like that happens on my day I will be pissed and I will not get over it! So I understand how you feel :)>>

    Oh my gosh I would have freaked!!! A ringing endorsement for taking automobile travel out of the equation, if I've ever heard one!


    <<She promised I would have information by the end of next week so all I can do is wait. Patiently :)>>

    I'll be really interested to see what she comes up with!

      What were your two options? Wydham and Sheraton? I'm anxious to see what she gives me


      I finally figured out what I'm doing for STD's after changing my mind and redesigning for a year. I'm in the process of ordering supplies and figuring out which looks best, I'll post soon. I love your STD, especially the picture


      The metallic blue cardstock for my passport came in today, I was sad because it's not as dark as I'd like for the traditional look, but I don't want to take the time to order samples finding the right ones. I'll just wait for the stamps to come and see how it looks first. I bought the stamps that say passport and the eagle logo from a seller on BDW (so excited about that) and I'm waiting for them to arrive.


      I'm going to search Book It!! Thanks!


      Your stationary is pretty - I got a sample of that with the Vista Sample Kit. I like how detailed your RSVP is - I was worried I was doing too much - so I'm happy to see you did too


      Oh and the guys at the dorr denied most of the people because my mom didn't have the list updated...like her new husbands supervisor and coworkers- denied..our friends who the husband happens to be an ex-nfl player - denied.... I really learned some lessons and no one can tell me not to be ocd about planning and organizing. I know it won't run perfect but I need it to run smoothly.

        So I went to BookIt the other day when you told me - the ticket I paid $428 for was $288 - I went to Orbitz asking for a refund check (btw price assurance is a crock, it has to be the EXACT same ticket for money back - like from the same place at the same time - the chances of two people flying from a small airport in VIrginia to Bahamas are slim ) and the next day it was back up to $870 - Next time I will go to Book It first! I used priceline before too but I think I'm done with Orbitz.


        I'm nervous about Beach Bum Vacations....I searched them on this site and it was nothing but bad news! I saw nothing but good things on the Knot. I know there's always good and bad but I'm worried. I'm still waiting for her to email me some prices. In the meantime I contacted Carnival today and found the cruise options I wanted and got some pricing. I think I'm just super anxious and this wait is normal but I'm going crazy. My passport STD's are just waiting for some info on their pages. I started cutting the covers today! I'm so ready!!

          Got to Nassau today! Were driving around to look at wedding locations tommorow. I ended up contacting the travel agents from Best Destination Wedding and have been having a great experience. She sent me the pricing and deposit information for two cruises and three resorts. After two weeks when I emailed the woman from Beach Bum, she sent me back prices for Wyhdham and Sheraton but asked for pictures of us to put together a complete package. I'm going to check out a time share my guy told me that you can rent, for 2 couples, and I think he said 3 floors for $150 a night. So far this sounds ideal for us.
