We are thinking August 22nd. Booked this far out? What, I already have a contact at the resort and working with Teresa from Vacations4less as a TA... I have been in contact with the resort but have not put the room block yet. I never thought a resort would be booked with so much time in advance. That is crazy, you are getting me nervous now

Just for our families are going to need 12 rooms. Then add friends in still. Rough estimate is approx 16-20 rooms.

 

I've requested a contact with the resort and with a travel agent so now just waiting on both to get back with me. I honestly didn't think it would already be filling up so quickly 17 months out.

I called and got a return call from Elvia (sp?) from the resort. I missed her call but in her VM she said she was going to email me the info. I haven't received it as of yet. However I did an online chat with the resort and she confirmed that the ocean swim up room was booked for the weekend I wanted. So, for sure one level of rooms is gone.

Yeah!

 

I did get a response today with all the package information. I returned my Wedding Reservation Request form to them immediately so hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll get a response by tomorrow. I'm anxious to start planning other things and sending out our save the date announcements.

I have not signed our contract but I am going to Playacar in May to check out the space before fully committing to a group contract. The wedding contract we will probably send this week. Let me know if there is anything, pictures, etc. that you would like while I am there :-) I am not as anxious to send the save the date since we are planning an engagement party in June where we will officially announce our date and location. Still we will send an official save the date shortly after the party, but I rather just see the resort and have everything worked out before taking that step.

 

(BTW, I am going crazy with the engagement party planning, I don't want to know how crazy I am going to be planning the wedding)

I would love to see any pics you take! My FI leaves this Sunday to go back to Afghanistan so we won't have a chance to do a site visit.  Well, unless I can convince one of my girlfriends to go with me.

 

We're having a small engagement luncheon on Saturday but with him being gone it really eliminates a lot for us.

We are moving right along. I've paid the deposit at the hotel and am working with the travel agent on blocking our rooms. She has our info and is submitting it to the resort. Once we hear back from her, we'll pay the 6% deposit on the block of rooms then my family and friends can start booking! I've already had 4 people try to contact her to start booking.

 

I also have our save the date cards in design now. Just waiting on the proof.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
