When did you ladies start looking into flowers? I'm getting married in May 2014 and want to book Maya Floral, but it's taking them awhile to reply. I'm thinking he prioritizes the weddings for this year. Am I just planning too early??

Hello Meowybells I started to looking this month. The resorts prices are too high, although my coordinator said she will try to work with my budget. I am looking for tall centerpieces and prices are much more than I expected (being its Mexico)  I also contacted Maya Floral and got a response that same day, we are also working on prices and floral arrangements for my wedding in August 2014. Try contacting Marvin hes been great at responding back. marvin@mayafloral.com

It was a headache to get all my guests to commit to certain dates, so I opted out. I just went ahead and found a TA who gave me better rates than Expedia.
This way my guests can customize their own trip, and I don't have to bug people about booking certain dates.

The only advantages I saw was having the TA "block rooms" for your guests so you are together in a certain area of the hotel, and savings you get from the group rate.

Yes I am in the same boat I feel like it would be a headache to get everyone to commit to days so far ahead and I'm honestly just not sure that it is worth the extra money.

@katiehenderson I did not go through a TA. I found that booking through expertise would help my guests save about 800 dollars a couple compared to the prices I was given by agents. Having a TA is great if you think that you can get a whole bunch of guests to stay for a predetermined amount of time, and can pay a deposit in advance. I just find it so much easier to let your guests book their own trip... and they really won't mind

So you booked your hotel stay through expedia and not the hotel and saved that much money?!

If you book your flight and hotel package through Expedia it does actually turn out less expensive than the rates the hotel gives you.

I have to second this...all of my guests so far have found awesome rates on expedia, and even though we do have a TA, if her quotes were more than what they found on expedia, she would honor the expedia rates as long as the guest put down a deposit with her that day.  But yeah, pretty much any rates you find are way better than the rates the hotel gives you

Hi Ladies, just booked my wedding at GRC for Saturday, August 9, 2014!!!! Our ceremony will take place in the Chapel at 4pm followed by Cocktail by the beach and Reception in the ballroom. We expect about 70 guests. My WC is Diana Rodriguez... she has been pleasant so far. Her communication is pretty regular (she seems pretty busy)... the longest she has not responded has been about 5 days.

I am also thinking about having my reception in the terrace- what are you doing for the decorations? the flowers seem very expensive in the catalog... what about DELSOL? how many hours are you booking them? I only wanted to pay max of $2k but is this realistic?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
