November 2012 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Yes, after much research, I decided it was a better deal to fly down my photographer.  It would have been about $2500 for the photographer that I wanted in Mexico with 6 hours on the wedding day and a TTD the next day.  After using my comp'ed nights for the photographer and her assistant- it will be $2000 for a photographer for 3 days! She will be doing a full wedding day shoot and a TTD session.  Plus I'm sure we'll get some extra shots in there as well! :) Oh and the engagement photos! :)

we are flying our photographer in as well. she's a good friend of mine, and I couldn't imagine anyone else doing our photos. We did a couples session with her in early 2011. With the comped nights, it works out about the same as hiring anyone local. I have the peace of mind in knowing her style fits with mine, and trusting that the end result will be amazing. That's worth it to me!!

 

Plus she gets to share in our special day, which is most important.

Good- I feel like it is now crunch time and I need to start working on all those "things that can wait."  I am going to start working on my diy boarding pass invites soon and I am finalizing the flowers with the florist.

 

We are now starting to house shop as well and are planning the shower and bachelorette party for  one of my best friend's wedding in Sept- HELLO STRESS!!! :)

 

How's everyone else?

Uhm yeah Shan - nothing like packing a whole lot into a short time!!! good luck. 

 

Am trying to pull all of the details together now - little tags for the favors, the survival kits for the OOT bags, tags for the OOT bags, etc. Just balancing all of that with work, since it's our busy season right now and isn't going to let up until I head for Mexico (sigh!!).

That is why I have decided to keep my OOT bags to a minimum- the bags, cups with lids, a welcome letter and maybe a few meds or something- I don't have time to go overboard...what all are you putting in your bags?

Hi ladies,

 

I am getting married at Excellence Riviera Cancun on Nov 30th!  I am very excited, but also pretty nervous when I compare what I have done, (STD'S and that's it) to what you all have accomplished so far.  Way to be on the ball!  It seems hard to start with OOT's and stuff when I am not sure what the final count will be.  So far 32 people have booked.  I still haven't picked out bridesmaidsd dress yet...that is becoming a thorn in my side--I just can't decide.  :/

Hi and welcome!!

 

Just do what I did- I went to David's bridal and picked out a color- (Horizon Blue) and that I wanted a short dress and then let every girl pick her own style of dress (with my approval of course).  I have 6 bridesmaids and 2 attendants/usherettes so it would have been hard to find something that looked good on everyone! :)
