I doubt many of them will actually come (at least I'm hoping) because they are much older on my dad's side and on my mom's side I only have one I am super close with. But with my luck, they will all say yes haha

       

      That's how my FI and I feel. There's people we are counting on RSVPing NO, lol.

        haha yeah. It will be interesting to see if they respond. I am adding a little thing on our save the dates that says " If you have any questions or if you already know if you will be joining us in the sun, or sending your best wishes from home, don't hesitate to let us know" in hopes that we may get a better idea even before we send out the actual invite.

          Hummm I hadn't thought about it that way.  I set up a program online that if people "hashtagged" on instagram then their pictures automatically uploaded to my email and I was super excited about it, but I get the point of ruining your professional photos.  We are in Mexico, but I am guessing a lot of people will be able to use the hotel wireless to upload photos.  I guess I'm going to have to think about this.

          I figure I can ask y'all.  Any opinions on a Welcome Bonfire timing?  I am leaving toward having it later on the Friday before the wedding (like 7:30 or 8) b/c if I have it at 5 like I have originally scheduled then there is that awkward ending time when my FI and I are like well we are headed to dinner and people may want to join and I'm not sure the resort can accommodate, blah blah.  Then if we have it later then everyone can come after dinner and just have cocktails and maybe something sweet!  Thoughts?

          A welcome bonfire is a great idea. I want to do a thank you bonfire for my guests. It is such a great touch while being on vacation. 7:30 is a great time to do the bonfire. Its right after dinner and a good time for socializing.


          I am excited to marry the most loving man I have ever met and to become part of his amazing family.

            That's exactly what I was thinking of doing. A welcome bonfire at like 7/8ish. I wanted to give out cards to the front desk to give to people as they check in that say "join us after dinner for a celebration on the beach". This would be Thursday night as the wedding is Friday ;)

            The front desk is a great idea!!  Make sure they won't charge you to hand anything to guests.  Mine wants to charge me to hand out anything.
