Good morning Ladies,
Sounds like you've all been busy while I've been offline! It's been awhile since I've posted! I got so much done in April when we first got engaged that then I had nothing left to do for a while! LOL
But I'm so excited because we started out planning to use an outside photographer in Mexico, then decided on the resort photographer because it was cheaper although we didn't like his work as well, and now I'm happy to say as of yesterday we've been able to negotiate with a photographer here in Atlanta for her and an assistant to come with us and shoot not just the wedding day but also the Welcome Reception, Catamaran Excursion, and our Recovery Brunch the day after for less than what I would have paid the resort photographer! She did my girlfriend's wedding in September and her work is amazing! She was doing our engagement pics so we really wanted the same person that did our engagement session to shoot the wedding.
We're doing invitations as well. I don't know if it's necessarily needed since we sent our STD's in May and about 50 people have already booked their rooms, but for the family members that can't come I think it will be something nice for them outside of anything online they've received.
We're doing passport invitations with a boarding pass RSVP card. My girlfriend (an amazing graphics design person) is in the process of working on them as well as the rest of the the wedding suite (welcome letter, welcome card, weekend timeline, door hanger, programs, etc.) I'll post pics when she's finished.
We haven't booked airfare yet because we're waiting on Airtran to post their fares in September. My plan is to purchase our seats on Airtran and then check in 24 hours before and upgrade us to Business Class for like $99. Much cheaper than booking a Biz Class seat to begin with. Hopefully that works! LOL
I just started buying stuff for our OOT bags so that's been exciting seeing all the packages come in...even if they are only Advil and Shout! LOL
Well, back to work I go...happy planning ladies! By the way, anyone getting married at Excellence Playa Mujeres weekend of May 4, 2013?
