But that number also affects our budget since our wedding package is for 20 people and we pay extra for every person over that. So far we have about 22 people who have sent in RSVP cards, but hardly anyone has actually reserved a room. And I'm still waiting on many more RSVP cards. Argh!

    Hi Alexis! I totally feel you! I am in the exact same boat. But don't worry. People will book their travels last minute. Over half of our guests are going to be booking their travel right before the due date which is 8 days from now. Just send out constant reminders and I found that speaking to them in person helped. And with the DIY depending on the number of guests coming...I'm in the same boat! With your FI's suit, you'll be fine. google search helped a bunch for my FI and I and we found and bought the suits for him and his groomsmen in a week. I found that over stressing made the planning less enjoyable so we took all of December off from wedding plans to take a step back and relax. Everything won't go smoothly but that's the reason for a destination wedding right?

    Goodluck! I know you'll be fine :)

        Hi ladies,


        April 15 is our day at Dreams Punta Cana and we are so excited, although, I must say, I have not been doing what I needed to months ago!!  My dress should arrive around mid February, and the girls get there's by March.... After reading a bunch of posts I envy you ladies who are so organized and started months ago!!! Either way, congrats to all you April 2013 Brides!!!

            I am moving away from the April brides... We had to postpone our wedding date by a month, BUT we just booked the trip yesterday and the wedding coordinator confirmed this date change, so right now it looks more real than it did for April!

            Hi ladies! Congrats to you all on your upcoming weddings! I'm a May 2013 bride that happens to live in Playa Del Carmen in the Riviera Maya. I saw that there were a couple of brides in here that are getting married down here, specifically DEWed2013 and Lindsay Green. 

             

            First, I wanted to offer my assistance if either of you has any questions about the area. We've been living down here for a year now and know the area quite well. Throw any questions you may have my way!

             

            Second, I'm in the process of collecting some decor for our rustic vintage themed wedding down here on May 22nd. I'm having a hard time finding everything I need since the area caters mostly to tourists and doesn't really have a ton of options in the way of home decor. If anyone having their wedding in Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum or anywhere in between would like to sell some of their decor items to me please let me know! This may also help with baggage fees on the way home ;)

             

            These are some of the things we are still looking for:

             

            - anything that would suit a vintage or rustic style wedding

            - fans in lighter shades of pink, teal, lavender, ivory or just made of wood

            - a birdcage (rustic looking if possible)

            - string lighting of any sort, exposed bulb and christmas lights

            - props and frames for a DIY photobooth (nothing too cheesy, we're think more of a "gentlemen & ladies" style"

            - oil lamps

            - tin buckets of various sizes

            - a parasol in any shade of purple, teal or turquoise

            - small glass candleholders

            - burlap or lace runners that would fit rectangle tables for 10-12 people

            - white or teal paper lanterns 

            - white or teal paper picado (as long as its not personalized of course)

            - anything else that's ivory, blush, lavender or turquoise

             

            Thanks, and happy planning to everyone! You guys are getting really close! :)


            Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.
