Sometimes its so frustrating when people dont understand how much research and work you've put into picking out the resorts and finding a good deal for them. You're doing all you could to make it easier for everyone but they always have a reason to think they can do better on their own. Sigh I guess that's something we as DW brides have to deal with. I just calm myself by telling myself that everything will be worth it in the end.

You girls are starting to make me worry haha... I was planning on getting quoted just in March/April to send my invite in April and get answers by mid-June..... since I've sent my STD in September to give them time to save their money and think about it.... But maybe I'm supposed to do that like... now...

Oh boy.. :)

No worries. I'm very Type A when it comes to these things so I just need everything done a certain way. I think that's why I got the quote so soon. I know the resort I'm going to is pretty popular for vacations too so I just wanted to make sure the resort doesnt fill up and guests cant get a room. I think it really depends on your guests and your style of planning. I know my friend getting married in Punta Cana in May just got her quote, but all her guests have put down their deposit so it really depends.

OMG!! Jreist, you are truly a superwoman!!

Just a suggestion if you don't have any throw away luggage, pack one small and one bigger and that way you can fill the smaller luggage coming home and put it in the bigger one. That's what I"m doing.

 

Question...does your resort have a screen foryour slideshow or do you have to bring that and projector. That's a cool idea I may just have to steal from you.

 

I need to make this list my checklist for the future. SO much to do.

JA2012, that's a question I've just sent to the resort, but on BDW I've heard past brides saying that you can rent it from the resort or the DJ has it.

YOu're worried?? This thread is making ME worried now. HAHAHAH!! I'm not even using a travel agent. Since my wedding isn't at a hotel I'm suggesting where guests should stay and letting them book it on their own. You wana go research and find a better deal???...go right ahead. I don't want the stress of it all. But hopefully they will be able to find a room. :-s

I would NOT worry if you're coming from the GTA. There are a million flights out of there. From Edmonton, all tours companies except one cancelled direct flights to Jamaica. We have to go through Toronto with a 3.5 hour lay over now :-( and a night flight booo!! 

 

Plus you can get way better deals from Toronto too!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
