It's a relief to hear that you are having a good response with Destiantionweddings.com. So did Debbie block rooms and the flights together or separate? Would you mind fwd'ing her contact info? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. She really sounds amazing! Plus, I definitely don't want the headache of going through expedia or other sites for best deals and then worry about having guests not being able to stay in the resort. I agree so many decisions! I am so stressed with school and trying to book a resort by May!
Wow, you have a big group! I had told you that we were going to have 60-70 people but then after a second look that's only from my FI's side!
I am torn between colorful fiesta theme (bright colors) vs a more vintage romantic theme (ie. light pink, burlap)...my pinterest boards are full. haha. Not sure about dress yet except I don't want something too big because I'm on the short side What about you, what are your colors & dress like?
I'm thinking about video cd save the dates...read about one posted here and it seemed to be a big hit with guests and got them excited.
Definitely, would love any information you get from your TA. Do you have a pdf of the wedding packages, by any chance? If so, can you send to me to my email? I don't have enough posts to open documents on here.
We are trying to narrow the resorts that we want to visit...it's so hard though. AHH!
I'm going to post the groomsmen gifts shortly...will send you link. My FI just started handing them out and they have been a huge success.
Figuring out the guest list has been the worst! Think I may have to make a "b" list! I love the idea of CD save the dates, I had never heard of that before.
So my original plan was to try on some dresses and then have someone on Etsy make me a copycat dress for around $400. Wellllll, my mom made me stop at the dress shop the other day "just to look". Anyhow, I ended up trying on a few and then fell in love with "the one"!!! I seriously would have paid whatever they wanted for it. lol ohhhhh well, i'll just have to try and save money on something else. Originally I thought I wanted something simple and Aline, but the saleswomen had me try on a mermaid from the Vera Wang White collection and I felt like such a bride. I never though that style with a poofy train would look good on me because i'm on the shorter side (5'4"). The funny thing is I hate how it looks in the catalog and I never would have thought to try it on...I'll post pics once I pick it up!
I'm still torn on colors as well...I think i'm between coral/white, or white/blush/gold.... I'm trying not to worry about that stuff until the summer, but I just cant help it!! I blame pinterest
All this wedding and mexico talk makes me want a Margarita!!
