Hi ladies! 

 

We are getting married October 5 at Dreams Resort in Punta Cana, DR.  I have a few things done, as I have my OOT bags and most of the contents.  I am going dress shopping next month, so we'll see how that goes.  

 

Look forward to planning with all of you brides!

I actually have no idea how many guests are coming..lol.  Based on the people that have said they are coming i'm thinking between 25-30.  So I'm planning for 30, but no one is really counted until they are paid in full :-).

or 15 bags, one for each couple?

 

When are you guys sending out invites? We have all of the details for our invites now and I just need to tell them that I want them printed.  We already did a save the date a year out, but i've heard of people doing invites 5 or 6 months out? I know there will be people booking through other sites (we used destinationweddings.com) because they THINK they can get better deals so I'll need to get their RSVP.  Thus, the invites are really only for RSVP purposes.  Most of the people who I know are coming have already put down their deposit through our site.

I don't think it's too early to send the actual invite if you have all the info! People will surely appreciate the extra time to pay for their trip. We are sending our save the dates next week...we don't have all the info yet for flights, etc....still working on that! But, a lot of our family and friends already know the dates and have started budgetting accordingly. I am thinking our actual invites will go out 6 months before. Also, we have a website that we'll include on our save the date for people to be aware of all the developments!

I am planning 1 per couple, but have a few extras because there should be a few single people as well.  

 

As for the invites, I plan to send ours out mid April.so it's about 5 1/2 mos out from the wedding date, but only 3 months out from the deadline to book in the group booking.

how long will you give them to RSVP ?

 

I was thinking of sending them mid-March (only because I don't want to wait too long to get new quotes from TA) but I don't know how long to give them to respond. I don't want to give them too long, because they are going to forget about it.. lol

 

The ultimate deadline for me to know exactly the number of guest is end of July , since I plan on ordering all my goodies and stuff at that time to give me enough time for shipments coming from China etc.

Ok, i think we're all on the same page.  I'm going to mail mine April 1st and have an RSVP by May 31st.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
