Hi fellow brides to be!

I'm organising our wedding for next year so not stressing to much yet! However just wanted to see if there are any other small wedding parties heading out. Looks like we'll just have 10 guests & I was thinking about the the upgraded wedding packages Eternity/Devine. I'm not sure if I'm wasting my (parents) money as we're really paying for 25 but I've tried costing out al a carte which looks expensive but be doing this wrong! Any advice on the subject?

I only have about 15 guests, 17 with the bride and groom. A wedding package is definitely worth the money. That stuff is EXPENSIVE otherwise! Unless you don't really care about a private dinner reception, then you might possibly be able to make it work.

Thanks Anne Marie! That's what I was finding! We had the moments package but by the time the judge, dinner, flowers, decor it was getting ridiculous! I guess it's just one of those things that we're not getting full advantage of the 25 guests but never mind! Shouldn't complain, I have seen lots of brides with way more guests than they expected! Incidentally does anyone know if you upgrade from the comlimentary package do you pay the difference in price or do you pay the full package. e.g If we are going from moments to Divine

You pay the full price of the package, minus the deposit, plus extras and tax I believe. We upgraded from eternity to divine

I also just booked DJ disco movil! So happy he is way more reasonable than the resort!!

 

We are leaving in 60 days! Whoa! I put some of our stuff into a suitcase...and then I stopped! Lol once I get the final few things done I will pack it all and be done that part!

 

Our wedding sheets have to be done and sent in soon, only 20 days! That seems to be the harder part right now!

candle23 I'm hoping to start packing soon and we have 84 days! At least all the decorations and things. I have an extensive packing list so my hope is to throw it in the bag, check it off the list and as summer ends we can pack our bags fully!

Share your packing list! I feel like I am drawing a blank and need to make sure I have everything!!

There are some great packing lists for Destination Weddings on Pintrest. I started from there and tailor made it for different catergories

1- Airplane

2- Welcome Bags

3- Cocktail Party

4 Group Dinner

5- Excursion to Chichen Itza

6- Rehearsal Dinner

7- girls Day at Spa

8- Wedding day

- getting ready

- spa

- ceremony

- cocktail hour

- reception

9- Honeymoon

 

 

I did the same listing for each day for an itinerary and "what to accomplish" each day we are there.

 

I feel good that I will not forget anything and worst case scenario you can rent anything from the resort so all you need is the dress!

All I have for cocktail hour are paper striped straws. I think we will choose a signature drink while we are there!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
