Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Welllll.... I just always assumed that it'd be on a beach... after all that is why the DW... BUT I don't know... I know the resort has different options for the ceremony - ie beach- garden - gazebo and you don't actually pick the location until you get there so that you can see all the spaces before you decide. Sooo as much as I assumed the beach was the only way to go.. what if I fall in love with the garden or something?!? :confused: Assuming it is on the beach I will do barefoot sandals and then have a pair of wedges for the reception and dancing. Plus, I figure if I end up picking a none sand location I will just wear the wedges. How about you???
Omg! ! Mee too same dilema. Assumed beach as well I mean thats why its on Turks pretty white sand right? I was worried about the same because I don't choose until I get there too. Gonna try to stick to my guns

I would be heart broken if I did not get the beach for my wedding. that is the soul reason for me to have a destination wedding. If i wanted a garden I could have easily found a garden here in the states!

That's nice of you to include 2 of his

Yeah I felt like it was the nice thing to do. One of the girls is his best friend from college and I'm as close with her now as he is but his sister that was done out of etiquette alone and I'm regretting it now because she won't respond to anything!!!  The bridesmaid dresses need to be ordered by 7/31 and no matter how many emails or texts I send her she doesn't respond.  He keeps calling her and she says she's not getting my emails even though I sent it to multiple addresses and through FB and she's also able to get and respond to my non-wedding related texts. She will be out of the wedding as of the 31st if she hasn't ordered her dress, which my FI is totally fine with.

haha International Love...10 WOW but if you have large families that's easy to do.

This is like the last thing on my list! I haven't been yet and have no idea when I will plan to go look. I did do some online window shopping a few months ago.. I actually found a dress I LOVE - I'm tempted to buy it but I know I need to try on some different styles to see what actually looks good on me.

 

I hope to find one that is a similar cute as the online one I like so I can get an idea if I will actually like it in person.

 

 

How about you all?

You have PLENTY of time to find a dress but just make sure you start shopping at least 9 months before your wedding.  I just barely made the cutoff for not needing to do a rush order because I had 8 months to the day. The designer I chose has a 6 month turn around time and the boutique likes 2 months for alterations (since you live near me you should totally check them out they have a great selection-Bella Sera Bridal in Danvers). Luckily my dress is coming in faster than they thought so I'll have plenty of time for alterations!

 

I had picked out a dress online that I loved but when I put it on it just wasn't me or what I was going for. I actually ended up buying the very first dress I tried on (after trying on a ton of others) and I'm still so in love with it.  I look at pictures and just can't wait to wear it  love.gif

I do too but if it does that's okay. I don't think she really wants to be in the wedding (or even come). She has only flown once, has never been out of the country and has told us a few times that she essentially doesn't understand why we're getting married in MX and it's selfish.  Oh well, you can't please everyone!

I have 5 bridesmaids altogether and no groomsmen. But I'm thinking i'm going to end up with just 2 bridesmaids and my MOH (my sister) I've also been sending emails to them. 3 of them are sisters so I don't know if they just appointed their sister as the ambassador or what but only 1 of the sisters responds to my wedding related texts/emails while 1 doesn't respond AT ALL and the other 1 responds only to baby shower related questions (she's pregnant), It's FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
