Would love to.  I noticed you're planning a wedding in Grand Cayman - one of my best friends is from there, so I've been quite a few times and love the island!  PM me with contact details.

I've just started reeeeallly getting more into planning. I just completed my Wedding Plans Notebook so that I can keep everything in one place, stay organized, and even know what to work on. I'm  a little all over the place, but am currently working on flower decisions, finalizing a DJ, and decorations (for ceremony and reception mainly). How about you?

I feel like I have a lot of the "big things" planned, so that's a relief! Venue for rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception. Photographer, DJ, Dress, my fiance's wedding band...all done. The next biggest things I need to work on are flowers. I have been reading a lot about the "real touch" flowers and since I'm not that impressed by the flowers offered through my resort, I'm thinking of taking that route. What are you girls doing for flowers?

I'm still stuck for flowers myself,.  I briefly thought about silk flowers (a friend of mine did that for her wedding and they were beautiful), but I would like them not only for the girls to hold but for some decorations as well - and the idea of transporting that all down there is too overwhelming for me.  I'm trying to find pictures of bouquets I like and am going to send them to my coordinator, asking what is practical in terms of what is easily obtainable on the island and what is hard to get (and therefore expensive).

I'm still all over the place too! I am honestly not too concerned about flowers as I'm not a huge flower person anyways. And honestly, I've been to about 20 weddings and I have no clue what any of the brides flowers looked like! LOL! I'll probably just get some basic daisys or lillies from the resort. 

 

This past weekend my fiance and I went and purchased our wedding bands so I was happy about that! That was a big purchase out of the way. (well at least the deposit!)

 

I did start making luggage tags and thank you for booking notes to send to people as they book. So far we've had 2 confirmed! Yay! :) Now I'm just still at a stand-still until I get some sort of idea how many guest we'll have!

I never thought to do a thank you for booking note, but I like!  Are you sending a hand written note?  Or do you have a template of some sort?

I'm going to sew luggage tags and send those out with the pre-travel brochure as people RSVP instead of waiting until a few weeks before.  I feel like that will help nudge people along who have RSVP'd and are planning to go but haven't booked their flight and/or hotel yet (we're not at an all inclusive).  I'm so paranoid that people are going to procrastinate and our room block is only held until 3 months before the wedding!

I don't really have a template. I actually went to vistaprint and designed an oversized postcard. I then saved it in a word doc and printed it out on card stock. I'll be mailing the thank you for booking note and luggage tags as each person books. We will also send all of our confirmed guest a pre-travel brochure about a month and a half before the wedding. It may end up being a lot of postage (depending on # of guest) but I think it's a nice touch and we really want to show our appreciation for joining us!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
