New Jersey Newbie!!! - May 11, 2013 RPRM

Recommended Posts

I stayed at a Dreams Resort in Cabo.  Real nice place!  Wow - your wedding is less than a year away - woot2.gif

 

We are planning for Easter Break 2013.  Just confirming with my FI's son's school that the actual break will be that week after Easter.  So if all goes according to plan, our date will be April 3rd, 2013.  It's a Wednesday.  We want to have a civil (legal) ceremony so we will have to be there 3 business days prior to the day we wed.  So we'd head down there Thursday March 29th.

 

I hope to have confirmation by next month.  I hate waiting....I've been engaged since Christmas so I am getting anxious to plan!!!  So in the meantime I am geting my Save the Dates ready and starting to build my wedding website, figure out a logo, etc.  This site ROCKS!  rockon.gif

 

And I am way into these icons today

woot.gifGreat now you got  me into the icons!  Yes this website is awesome, I got engaged in January and have to plan for next January because of school thatswck.gif But at least I will have finals in December and have a month to get the last minute details with no stress!!!  We opted for the symbolic since our tax guy will tell us if it benefits us to do legal December or January, real romantic but I'm getting my lay off notice this June and anything extra in benefits will help, so maybe I'll change it to legal if it pans out that way. I sent in my credit card info today and according to them it is available! I've been to Secrets (which is owned by the same company) and I loved it! Same restaurants and all I have children attending so we choice the dreams.  Then we head off to Secrets Maroma for a couple days for our honeymoon hotel!  Well I've seen you around in post..I'm sure we'll talk more..don't know why I"m on a New Jersey newbie thread...since i"m across the coutry, but I'll see you on the other threads!smile105.gif

Yes...I"m finally getting married!!!! I waited 5 1/2 years for a proposal!

Currently, I'm in the Early Care and Education field, training family child care providers to provide quality care to children!  But today I got notice that I have an interview for a Director Position for an initiative that promotes pre-k readiness!! So maybe my fate will change.  I'm also working on my masters to become a holistic psychotherapist, which is my true passion! smile123.gif Yes I'm in beautiful sunny California!  How about you, since were sharing stories woot2.gif

5 1/2 years???  I got ya beat, Sister!  6 1/2 here!  LOL!  Gosh guys are slow!

 

Great news on the on the interview!  Good Luck!  I am a firm believer of everything happening for a reason so maybe this is why!!!!  Power of positive thinking....it works!  

 

Sunny CA?  Lucky lucky lucky!  I am in (now chilly) Upstate New York.  I live in Clifton Park which is like 20 minutes north of the capital, Albany & 20 minutes south of Saratoga Springs where the big horse racetrack is and they host the Travers Horse Race every August.  Great area - 3 hours from NYC - 3 hours from Montreal, Canada...pretty central....

To update this post:

 

I'm off maternity leave hissyfit.gif . I gave birth to a 7lb 3oz baby girl name Isabelle Jonae...So while on maternity leave I got some things done that I will be posting on the site soon. I have managed to get my invitations to the Bridal party, and "Save the dates" done, along with brochures and magnets printed at vistaprint. I figure I will send them out the day after the engagement party to get an idea what to expect in number of people "pre RSVP" and to give people the time to review the information and make a decision by June 1st. I'm having an engagement party on March 31st of this month and I'm very excited. We have also booked the resort, while working with our travel agent Wendy Hicks.

Since I will be on maternity leave in 6 weeks, I'm hoping to get a lot of things out the way.I did look at a couple of forums about RPRM, but I have not seen any recent brides getting married there. We have a date of May 11, 2013 but that can change to June 11, 2013.. 

 

Anyway I wanted to know if there is there anyone else out there who has considered this resort, any information they have found, and any other information out there about the resort from current and past brides... I have been on thier website and looked at the packages they offer but more information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

and 

 

Congratulations to all the new and past brides!! :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
