I don't know how I didn't find this board before but I'm Amie and me and the fiance are getting married at the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen on November 8, 2013!  Right now I am slightly overwhelmed with everything and don't even know where to start!  We have 23 confirmed booked guests and possibilities of additions to add on later, but I am not going to worry about that! 

 

I received all my forms from the Wedding Coordinator but I don't even know where to start with those!  And the fiance is in school until mid-April so I have decided not to go much further until he's back to work!  I have plans for OOT bags, Welcome packages, key card holders, luggage tags, etc. We are going to take a mini road trip to the states this summer to see how much we can get for cheap! My fiance's parents have a house in Phoenix as well and will be there the majority of the summer and able to bring us back anything we have shipped to them! 

 

Happy planning everyone! Any tips and suggestions on anything and everything will be helpful!

Welcome and congratulations!!  Having a place to deliver items in the USA will come in  most handy!  There is a bundle of information on this website..absolutely love it!!!!

ALRIGHT November sista brides...I need some help!!!! 

 

I've been tossing and turning about the photographer for our wedding.  I booked Angela Brooks Photography but did not sign a Contract or anything of the sort, just verbal...here is her website http://www.angelabrooksphotography.com/?page_id=1015   and her Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/stacey.hauserman#!/pages/Angela-Brooks-Photography/276142922418634?fref=ts

 

Angela does good work and she is a GREAT person. I chose her primarily because I know she will get along with everyone (we have 78 going) and she will blend right into the group,  no one would even know she is the photographer.  People would assume that she was a relative or close friend that is also a photographer.

 

My dilemma is that I am very drawn to the work of Sunset Photography...her website is http://sunsetphotography.zenfolio.com/   and her Facebook Page is https://www.facebook.com/stacey.hauserman#!/pages/Sunset-Photography/252105654831850?fref=ts

 

I feel that her photographs are much more artistic and really love her style. However, albiet really nice, I don't think she will 'BLEND" in as well with the group.    She is also $600 cheaper but with less experience.  

 

I'm losing sleep over this...I know I know I know...I'm such a loser!!

 

 What do you ladies think I should do?

Lydia, Why dont you get Sunset to do some engagement or another photoshoot and see how it goes then you may feel better with her as a person maybe once she shoots you she will relax a little with you. My other suggestion is to just go with your gut thats hard sometimes but I think that it will work out just fine!

You're BRILLIANT Jolene!!  I am going to do a Boudoir Session  so I'll get both photographers to do a session each (they're only charging $100 each) and see whose work I like better and who I am most comfortable with.

I am just curious how everyone is doing with their planning. Anyone want to share what stage they are at? Personally, I have reserved our date at our resort, and we have a reservation booked at a resort for our second week.  I have not yet booked flights, or booked our stay at the wedding resort. I have my dress, but my fiance doesn't have his suit yet.  My sisters have ordered their BM dresses. Other than that I don't think I have anything else accomplished.  Am I the only one that still hasn't booked trip and flights? Dina
So far we have... Created wedding website Booked our resort and flights (as well as 46 guests have paid deposits) Booked photographer (HDC) Ordered 2 of 3 BM dresses. Bought my wedding band Addressed and stuffed invites (they will go out in the next few weeks) Going dress shopping in 2 weeks. (I know I'm late to the game on this lol) FI has picked his ring but we have not bought it yet. I think that is where we are at so far in the planning process. I am really enjoying things so far.

Hi everyone! We are getting married at Excellence Riviera Cancun on November 15th! Our photographer has been booked, Lori at Sweetfire, and we've booked Mannia as our DJ. Passport invites have been ordered from Allurements by Rebecca and are being printed this week. We're getting there! Can't wait for the big day! Where's everyone going for their honeymoon? Are you staying at the resort you're being married at or going off to somewhere different after the guests leave?

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
