I TOTALLY agree with you about warm, beach, tropical drinks!  And I never noticed that you are in Boston - Me too : )

Technically I live in Somerville, I used to live in the Seaport near the World Trade Center, but I still say Boston because it's easier. Where are you??  Since you're a fellow Bostonian I know you understand the joy of escaping the cold especially after all the snow this winter!

I'm just down the road in Arlington!  Everyone has heard of Boston so I usually use that for everything : )

 

And yes I think Winter is the best time to go on a tropical vacation!!  What's up with this weather lately?!? Oh wait - its New England "Hi I must be new to town" HAHAHA

 

Nice to meet ya neighbor : )

Oh I defiantly get wanting your own children there!!  I don't have any so I guess it was less of a must for me. I guess because we just want a fun family time for the wedding children are okay with us..however if we were planning for home only our own children would have been allowed. . They had dark brown, black, dark blue, white and grey for men's flip flops.   I was so undecided on the colors. I ended up getting a mix of brown, blue, and black.   I was able to get 10 pairs (only need 9) so I grabbed one pair of white as well. I didn't particularly like the grey ones - the white ones were kind of my favorite but I am having everyone wear white to the wedding and I didn't want them to think I was saying they MUST wear those.... Oy.. I just don't know LOL
Atleast you have a variety. .are you going to put in oot bags or have a flip flop station? I was thinking if having guest wear a certain color as well but not sure now.
I looked into Beaches-Turcs and Caicos but it was way to expensive (in my opinion). Since I'm getting married in February it's prime traveling time and I couldn't ask my guests to spend $3-$4K for 4 nights, well I could but I'm pretty sure instead of having 45-50 people I'd have about 4 haha.  I tried to be conscious of the fact that our friends and family have a wide array of income, my FI and I are in a better place then most but we have two incomes, no kids and are in our early 30's.  Plus we didn't want to pay to much for the wedding/stay because we're doing a 13 night honeymoon after our wedding!!! Yes I think Cancun will be nice, I haven't been to the resort I'm getting married at but I've been to that area several times and my sister used to have a time share there. As far as I'm concerned if it's warm, there is a beach and tropical drinks in February it's way better than being home in Boston!
Turks is a lot more expensive than some other islands however I did give guest 2 yrs of notice if our intentions of having a turks wedding. All that will be able to join us we are delighted to have those who are unable will be missed but it is what we want! 13 days is amazing wish we had that long. Where will honeymoon be? You are so correct warm..tropical drinks and beach we are all lucky will be fabulous:-)

It looks like I HAVE NO travel agent! No wonder I sent an email 3 weeks ago and NEVER got an answer. I am beyond angry. Apple Vacation didn't bother to inform me, or get me a new travel agent or anything!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called and I got a machine. They are going to get a piece of my mind because that is bad customer service!! I should have been informed that the TA quit or left or anything and got replaced ASAP. This is something I am not suppose to be stressing about. I am not a happy camper.

Eww - that super sucks!!  I hope you are able to get everything worked out : (

Sorry Jessica,

 

I must say I have been emailing my TA none stop. We understand each other now and its a great feeling. Have you tried a WTA?

I am sending out 90 invitations and expecting 40-50 people. The cost did deter some of my guests but I also gave them the option of booking their own trip if my rates weren't good enough

Shara:  One of the ways that I pitched a DW to my FH is that we could save money by having the wedding and the honeymoon in one locale.  We will definitely move to another resort, but will try to stay in the Riviera Maya area. 

 

P.S. I have entered a number of honeymoon contests, so if we win one of them, all bets are off!

Giving your guest 2 years to plan and save is more than enough time.  I'm only having a 9 month engagement so I'm not leaving people very long to save/plan and book but we've been together over 3.5 years and didn't want to wait so we tried to find a place we loved that was economical, specifically for my FI family who doesn't travel, his Mom has never even been on a plane!!

 

I can't wait for our honeymoon! We're spending 1 night in FL then going on a 12 day cruise to Central America, South America and the Caribbeanwoot.gif

We are doing a separate honeymoon.  Originally we were going to fly to another part of Mexico but then we decided to do a cruise, so after 5 days in Mexico I'm going to FL then on a 12 cruise to Central America, South America and the Caribbean.  We had thought about doing one a month or two later but it saved on airfare to do it right away, my poor doggies though, I feel so bad leaving them for that long (even if they are staying with family)!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
