Everyone is welcome. The lady I got it from off of another thread really saved me a headache with that. I told her she was awesome because I would have never thought of that and I had no clue where to start. cheer2.gif Her time line is a God Send

Hi Girls!! I don't feel so bad anymore. 2013 hit and the planner has come out! I'm going crazy thinking that it's really not that much time!! I actually started to do my save the dates. Let me tell you...it's a labor of love. I didn't realize how time consuming it would be. I plan on doing the invitations soon after. (I'm a grad student and am on break til Feb.) Since I plan to send the invites out as early as June, think it's time to get started on those too. Congrats to all of us 2014 brides!!!

We are choosing between Punta Cana and Mayan Riviera/Cancun. The only thing we have decided is the time of year and a couple different destinations... Any ideas or advice would be great! Also, thinking luggage tags for STDs:) Thanks 2014 brides! We want to choose the destination/resort by march and that's when we will send STDs, and invitations August??

 

Hi Kpounder.

For me the decision was easy. Punta Cana! I got engaged there and I'm dominican. I though of Riviera Maya but it is more expensive than the DR to get married and from what I read from fellow brides, there's a couple of hurdles you have to jump to be able to get married there. Not sure how true that it but as soon as I saw the prices for Mexico, Punta Cana was the clear choice for me. I'm getting married at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. If you plan on a DR wedding, I'd suggest you take a look at it. I'm doing boarding pass for the STDs and Passports for the invites. My wedding is in March, hope to have the STDs out by early Feb and invites by June/July

Hey! Are you using a travel agent? Did you confirm your wedding date or book anything with the resort yet? I love the sound of a boarding pass and then passport, cute! We really want the vacation to be duper affordable for our guests, have you got any rates for the resort? What is your guest list count? I know the wedding requirements for Mexico seem crazy...:( Thanks for your input! Muchly appreciated! Happy planning. Oh ya, where are you ordering your STDs and invites? I've found magnet street to have great prices!

K pounder, originally my date was october 26 2013 but i had to push it back. Ive been communicating with the wc but havent booked the march 2014 date bc the books don't open until april but i had my oct date confirmed with no problem. So i'm not worried about that. I am using a travel age t from apple vacations. No quotes yetbecuase again the flights prices aren't listed until ayear in advance so i have to wait until march. My guest list is at about 60 (very huge families). I'm confident it will be less than $1500 for a week per person. I actually am making my own save the dates and invites. Theres a bunch of great threads from other brides that made it super duper easy to make em yourself instead of spending money which could go to a other part of your wedding. As soon as i send them out, i will post pics for you to see if you like. Happy planning!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
