Are you guys planning on bringing any decorations for the reception? If so what? And Kay where are you having your reception dinner have you decided yet? And are you having a private party? I requested to book the Palapas for dinner and then the disco for the private party. I like the idea of the beach party, but don't like that there aren't any chairs or a dance floor. My FI and I salsa dance so we are planning on surprising everyone with a choreographed salsa dance for our first dance and thought that would be better to do in the disco then beach!

Jolene, I was just thinking with your wedding date having to change what happened with your map and luggage tags? Had you already printed everything off? Are you going to change it?

I know there are so many things to do! I have pretty much the big stuff planned so I am like oh man so now what will I have to do... but theres all those other little things I want to do, like make luggage tags and welcome booklets etc!

 

I am just finishing up our invitations! They have gone through soooo many changes but I think my FI and I are both finally super happy with them! I had them the way I thought I wanted them but the colour turquoise wouldn't print off properly so it was always more of a royal blue which I didn't like. Oh well now I've changed the colour to brown and they look so beachy and awesome! I will be sooo happy once they are finally done! They have just been giving me a headahce lately haha!

Whoop, just ordered chair sashes, this has been a bit annoying but it is done and they should be in the mail today or tomorrow. Feels good to check things off the list!

I am bringing silk flower petals in my colours to be sprinkled down the centre of the tables, and pencil starfish to be placed on the tables as well.  As for our reception, I think we are going to do the Cuban, but I recently saw pictures of a reception in the tex mex and I like that area as well.  For the private reception, were hoping for a beach party depending on weather.  For salsa dancing you will deff. need that dance floor!

Hi Jolene,

 

why did your flight change?  My TA never mentioned this could happen.

Kay,

 

When I originally booked November 2012 my travel agent let me know that flight schedules dont come out until about 6 months before so when you book travel more that 6 months ahead of time you are doing what is called a Pre Registration with the tour company, but then at around the 6 month mark the tour companies schedule with their airline (sunwing, airtransat they use their planes plus some other companies as well) so thats when everything gets firmed up... she said that prior to this they use the current year as a guide but then when they are firming everything up they will look to see how many people flew that day and some other stuff. She told me that it may stay the same and it may change. So at least knowing that it could happen I was a little more prepared when it did happen it wasnt a total freak out just a little hiccup and all my guests knew too so they werent really that surprised either. She told me that AirCanada and WestJet it doesnt happen as often because they use all their own planes but she said that wasnt 100% guarantee either so to spend the extra money wasnt worth it.
