    Lets hear it for a late start! :eek:Can anyone give me info on booking at an all inclusive resort that will do a legal wedding on a Sunday ?? I've only found beaches t&c which seems too much for guest and beaches Jamaica which is too far from the airport, also sandals in Jamaica which is couples only, in need of serious help!! Trying for a june 2014 Sunday, no luck so far!

    Awwe I hope yiu find something. I will check foe u. I'm at sandals in jamaica. I see u need a place to accommodate childern. One thing about beaches negril is not too far from airport and they do provide transportation to and from.

        I too have some noj couples attending and some are 2 girls, 2 guys who have decided to share room to curb expenses. Their rational has been we don't give a damm about being in same room, opposite ends of bed, whatever. Lol. We probably will barely be in room other than shower or short nap. Lol

          Congratulations on your engagement! Mexico has some very reasonable AIs. However, I checked out Mexican marriage laws, and it looks like there are no legal weddings in Mexico on Sundays. http://marriage.abou...al/p/mexico.htm Have you tried getting in touch with a wedding planner in Jamaica? Or Turks and Caicos? They might have some good ideas about what possibilities are available.

            Hey everyone!

             

            Has anyone started on their STD/Invitations? I'm in the early planning stages and I'm trying to figure out what are you putting on the STD and invitations?

             

            So far for my STD I have; a picture, date of the wedding, wedding website.

             

            I'm thinking about my invitations and I'm kind of at a loss for what to include. I have an idea of design... but what specific deets should I put in there.

             

            What do you guys think?

              Get some sort of website and put it on your STD so your guests have an idea of what to expect as far as costs - 

              I'm in the STD mode sorta, I won't send it out until a month or so lol

                You really dont need any details other than the date so they can plan and a website with booking and other details, since nothing is set in stone yet you can update the website as it goes.

                  Hahaha - I hope you get them and I hope you like them... they do take a little figuring out at first - if you don't do them right they don't really save space.. but ones you get it down they are great!!

                  You can do a honeymoon registry right on the beaches website (sorry if this was already mentioned!)

                  Well
                  I can definitely say that I haven't spent a dime yet. I'm still working on my budget, but I'm gonna hang out over here with ShugaPop and her under 10k wedding. *side note* do you know what I could do with 10k?!?? Think of all the hang bags and shoes.... I digress.

                  Anyways I'd like to keep my budget at 10k it sounds reasonable. I still need to work on the budget & guest list. But I'm assuming bc it's destination, some of that will work itself out right? Is it wrong for me to assume that I can just invite however many people I want. Please stop me now if I'm living in fantasy land.

                  I'm excited to make OOT bags & Pre-departure folders. I just hope it stays in budget. I have a notebook that I journal & jot notes in so that I don't forget and I have a place to record stuff

                   

                  OOT BAGS!!!!  

                  Hi Ladies, I am a newbie :-) have a lot to catch up on you guys have A LOT of information on here!  Happy planning ladies!

                   






                  It does seem like it's gonna be a blast. Is it going to be at your home? How soon after wedding will you have it?

                   

                  I am inviting alll you lovlies to my AHR!!!   

                  I have been traveling for work all week, I've been keeping up with everyone's posts but not posting myself.  I wanted to welcome the 2 new girls, MrsPeele2B and myyooths. 

                   

                  The girls on here have great tips and they are some savvy DIYers, I however am not one of them. I am however very good at ordering off ETSY, it has been my saving grace!

                   

                  How was Vegas???   Hope you got to enjoy yourself!

                  Hmm that stinks - The original date I wanted happen to be on a Sunday -- I decided that I wanted my Location more and picked a new date... so I'm not much help on where you can go but I can tell you that St. Lucia is not an option for Sundays either

                    Wouldn't it be great if they were paying for everything.  Boy must have been nice back in the day when parents paid.  But, then maybe not because that gives them too much say so

                    Have you tried a TA they can help you narrow down choices.

Which sucks, but we'll make due

                    Mine is the oldest of the siblings, italian, and his first marriage.....the Italian mother part is a pain in the assssss

                    LOL!! I can imagine.. Heck any mother is probably gonna be a pain for her first and last born boys...
