Hola Everyone, Im the latest "newbie." Getting married at the Palma Real in 2014. Lots of time to plan. To my suprise there are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many decisions to be made for a destination wedding. What are some of the "do's" and "dont's?" Thanks in advance = 0

 

HI ladies congrats to you both!!

 

I am getting married this Dec and I am using a planner and she has been great! If you would like more info on her please PM me.

 

Otherwise take your time and pace yourselves. Before you know it things will start coming up and you will have decisions to make so go dress shopping and look at different things so you dont do it all last minute because then it can get overwhelming and frustrating.

 

Good luck!

Hello PPR Brides!

 

I am so anxious b/c my date is so close and my planner is due soon! I have a few questions (please keep in mind that I am trying control the cost at this point):

 

1. What information are you including in your welcome bags? Are you also including gifts or favors? I was thinking of adding an info sheet (with information to be determined), a favorite DR snack, maybe a map, and a personalized plastic cup. I can't think of anything else. Cheesy?

 

2. Are you having a rehearsal dinner? If so, where? 

 

3. For 26 people, should I hire a DJ? If no DJ, should I hire an MC?

 

4. Is anyone hiring a videographer? If so, who are you using? Is anyone also streaming their wedding for guests who can't attend? 

 

5. Is anyone using an outside stylist for hair or make-up?

 

Thanks for your help!

My FI mother would like use to register for gifts becasue a lot of their family is not joining us in the DR.  We feel a little awkward about having a registry do to our decision of having a destination wedding. Does anyone have any suggestions on who we should we word it on our wedding website without sounding greedy?

Hi Ladies,

 

I know some of your big day is fast approaching!  I don't know about you guys but I am getting super excited as well as overwhelmed.

 

I had my planning call last week.  It went really well we covered a lot.   Lots of food choices on the buffet menu with swaps allowed within reason. I have been finishing up my Message in  a Bottle invites....the DIY from hell!  so I hadn't done that much else.  We are doing the chill out chic package...was wondering what kind of pricing you got for centerpieces.... everything adds up so quickly.  We chose that package partially because we loved the decor and didn't want to have to add much!  Anybody renting the bridal suite? I have a small party and not sure if it was worth it.....  We are staying in the reserve so the suites are large.... I figured I could send my fiance and his son to get ready with my dad and nephew...  Also, what is everyone doing in regards to music for cocktail hour?  Bianca suggested having cocktail hour in the same location as reception so we could add the DJ for an hour, or use an ipod for the cocktail hour.  Would an ipod be cheesy for the cocktail hour.....i think if we did a good mix ahead of time it would be fine probably...

 

Plus we have a little situation....my sister who is my maid of honor is pregnant, her obgyn said it was fine to fly....she will be about 7 months in july!  Only thing is she got put on bedrest for some issues last week....  I don't know if she will be able to come with her husband and my niece and nephew who are in the bridal party as well..  ahhh the stressors of a destination wedding.... I have seen some of you are going thru issues as well!  We are trying to stay positive!  The baby and my sisters health is most important!!!!

Oh and congrats to all the new brides to be just starting their planning! 

 

in regards to registering..... We felt funny at first but we have a lot of family who are not attending and my mom still thru me a bridal shower, especially for people who couldn't afford to attend the wedding, she thought it was a nice way for them to be included in some of the festivities!  We registered for a mix of things to update our home since we live together already and we were careful on prices.  Since some people are traveling for the wedding we didn't want to go crazy with big price items.  Pretty much there was something at every price point!

Hope that helps!

Good Luck with everything Erica...omg your day is less than a week away!!!!!

    • 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! 
    • 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.
