December 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

I searched high and low and didn't find a thread for December 2013 brides so I thought I'd create one.  This can be a great place for us to share ideas, plans, templates, stresses, etc.  

 

I'm getting married at Marival Residences in Puerto Vallarta.  Right now we have our venue booked and finally secured group pricing with our travel agent.  

 

Today we bought some goodies to start working on our 2nd STD.  Our 1st STD we sent a little less than 2 years in advance to get people to save (not sure that worked).  For our 2nd STD, we are sending a DVD w/ a little video introduction from us, followed by a video of our resort (thanks youtube) and then pricing information from our travel agent.  

 

I'm also having my dress made and think I finally came up w/ a design that I like and sent off for fabric samples today. msnparty.gif

 

I'm really struggling though with photography.  Dang, it's expensive!!  I'm not sure if we should pay the money for a photographer in Mexico or try to negotiate w/ a local photographer for some sort of trade-off (pics for free vaca).  Any suggestions?

 

I hope this thread helps because I've found so much useful information on this site.

 

Happy Planning!!

Hi Traci

Thanks for starting this thread. I am getting married December 3 at Grand Palladium Whitesands in the Mayan Riviera Mexico. So far I have booked it and just purchased my wedding dress but don't have much else yet. Bridesmaid dresses are the next step!

Hi girls,

 

Im a December bride too! As posted on the Newbie thread, I dont qualify as a DW bride but there are some great ideas & tips here so Im staying!

We were considering getting married in either New York or Jamaica (will travel to both on our honeymoon), but then decided against it. So what we are doing is having a secret wedding here at home, and then heading straight for the airport and off on our honeymoon. Finding it really hard to keep quiet and not spill the beans. Have all these ideas that I need to vent and get advise on, more so for our AHR rather than the wedding.

That's the thing about this site. There is a lot of great information but it could make you more overwhelmed.  LOL

I just got engaged a few weeks ago and we've decided on a December wedding in Ocho Rios Jamaica.  I am hoping that choosing the resort and date was the most stressful part of this process! LOL! Now on to the invites!

I'm on vacation this coming week and I have lots on my list that I want and need to get done.  We moved into our house 8 months ago and still have boxes lingering in closets.  LOL! In regards to the wedding, the wedding invite template is almost done.  I want to find the stationary and get them printed, assembled and mailed out by mid July.  The other thing is I want to go out and dress shop. We are going to finalize the reservation with my travel agent and work on the website too.  Oh my...I don't think 7 days will be enough time.
