Recommended Posts

Oh No @@malyna!!  I know that is stressful. I'm sure everything will be okay.   :) It's a good thing you didn't wait until the very last minute. One of my friends was still getting her dress altered 2 days before her wedding.

@@RandL2015 - love everything!!  Seems like you have everything under control!!  I really need to get organized.  That's this week's to do - create 1 massive to do list and assign due dates - I do better with structure lol.

 

Where did you get the monogramed tote bags and backpacks and the robes?   I may have to steal some of these ideas!!


@@malyna - that does suck!  But like @@RandL2015 said good thing you caught it early!  My dress hasn't come in yet.  It's scheduled to be here 9/20.  Fingers crossed we're on time.

@Jangin purchased the tote bags from the knot, their wedding shop. They had a sale where they were $9.95 + $4.95 for monograming. The robes I ordered from DH Gate for $14 each.

 

@@malyna I am just wearing wedge flip flops. Beachy and comfortable.

 

Will try to get more items done this weekend. ????

Ok fellow November 2015 Brides, we have 1 full month of planning, what is everyone doing now?

 

I just had my bridal shower this past Saturday, which was so much fun. Gave out my "Bridal Entourage " gift bags which they loved.

Packed 2 suitcases with all of my reception, and party decorations.

 

Submitted my documents to the resort, and finalized my wedding contract.

 

Now, that I have a final count of 23 guests that will be joining us, I am going to get my OOT bags together.

 

Whew, I feel like it is all coming together.

Wow! @@RandL2015 Sounds like you are super organized and have everything together! I feel like I should start packing stuff up now too! 

 

My family is throwing us a joint wedding shower this weekend! We are down to 41 days until our wedding and 37 days until we leave for Mexico! Things are coming up so fast now that we are getting so much closer, but I haven't felt the stress yet... I feel like its coming though! List of things that I still need to do:

 

- Finish program fans

- print welcome letter

- choose parent dance song

- book group excursion

- get marriage licence

- pick up dress from alterations

- bridesmaid's and groomsmen's gifts

- print out MC schedule/script

- finalize contract with resort

- make final payment

- finish writing vows and thank you speech

- put together a wedding binder with all info to bring to the resort

- start packing stuff!

 

Of course my wedding coordinator at the resort is on holidays until next week so its going to probably get crazy then... she still has to send me the finalized contract, final payment information, etc. Can't wait until all of the contract stuff is out of the way though, then I can cross all that big stuff off the list.

@@amberc Just wanted to pack some things to get them out of the way.  My dining room table is filled with so much wedding stuff.  I just needed some space.   :)

 

I too have to finish put together my program fans, and do my pre-boarding letter, that I want send out 3 weeks prior to the wedding.

 

Still trying to think of what group activity to do. I want something that at most is a 1/2 day excursion. Thinking we may just do a group activity at the resort. Maybe a pool tournament for the guys and beach/pool volleyball for the ladies.

 

My Fi is still working on our playlist for the DJ.

 

Just crossing one thing at a time on the HUGE "Things To Do List"!!  :)

@RandL2015 I hear you about having stuff all over the place... I'm excited to have the space back again haha

 

Ya I like the idea of doing a group excursion too! We gave the guests an option if they wanted to come with us on a Pirate Booze Cruise which I think will be really fun. We didn't have it in our budget to pay for everyone which sucks so we just asked people if it was something they wanted to do. Most people wanted to do the excursion so I did a group booking for everyone to make it a bit easier on them. 

 

But... I really like your idea about organizing some sort activity at the resort! I might have to steal that!  :)

@@Meandhim Welcome fellow November Bride!!  You are getting married the day before me.  Woohoo!!  I'm sure you are doing great!!

 

Just had my bridal showers, so now I am writing all of my Thank you notes.  My goal is to get that done this week.

 We finished to contract, so now I am making menu cards. I think this will be my final design.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
