December 2014 Brides!

Recommended Posts

How is the planning going, ladies?

 

Just wondering if you've thought of favours yet? Are any of you going to work Christmas/the holidays in there at all?

Hi ladies!

 

Planning is going great!  Save the dates have been sent and we already have 7 couples booked (and earned 5 free nights for us!) and another 4-5 couples who are working on their reservations right now.  

 

We are keeping things very simple - no bridal party and not a lot of "extras."  One of my good friends is a hairstylist and will be doing my hair and makeup for the ceremony.  We don't have a bridal party, so no dresses or anything to plan there.  I've already purchased my dress ($150 J. Crew dress - brand new with tags!) and are going to wait until the wedding gets a little closer to pick out the grooms outfit, jewelry, etc..  

 

The only problem I've had so far is with the resort wedding coordinator.  After we signed our contract and paid our deposit, she sent us about 20 questions to answer regarding the wedding (flowers, color of cake, did we want a DJ, etc.).  We answered the questions and sent them back and she promised to get to them "as soon as possible."  Well, it's going on 7 weeks now and still no response from her!  I'm not sure if that is a normal turn-around time but I'm going to give it another 2 weeks before I start to get really irritated.  

 

We are traveling from December 6th-13th, which we picked on purpose to avoid the peak season rates (which start on the 19th) and to avoid the holiday crowds.  Even so, the resort is already filling up pretty quickly.

 

Hope all of you are having a great time with your planning!

@@ChristinaL - Apparently the response time is typically bad, but still. 7 weeks seems pretty ridiculous to me. I'd probably send a follow up and maybe add in a question or something to make sure they got it

Can't speak for your resort (and yes I am a January 2015 bride), but my resort asked me to send that form back approx. 3 months before my wedding.  I think they just want an idea of what you want, which will be firmed up when you meet the WC in Mexico.    At our resort the ladies we speak with now aren't the WC and they will get in touch with you 1-2 months before to really get things rolling!   You could always email her and make sure she received it!?!

I always said I would marry in Vegas, but alas it's Mexico lol

Nonetheless when I was looking at places in Vegas (Paris/Bally's would have probably one), I was noticing A LOT of the chapels said they were 'sold out' for 12-13-14 heheh 

Seeing your username makes me think of this!

@@calgarybride2015 We're hold up at the Stratosphere! The welcome reception in a suite overlooking the valley and strip, awesome chapel, champagne buffet, after party at the lounge and NFL Week 15 game watch at the sports bar! I put together an awesome weekend, well within budget...I think! LOL!

@@VegasBride121314 - When we were choosing a date, 12/13/14 never even occured to us haha. I saw someone else ask about the date later on, and it finally clicked and I was like OHH that makes sense haha. So we're 12/19/14 - based purely on pragmatism :P

I offered was met with "what does that mean to us?" So, one day, we're on the couch geeking out and I said how about 12.13.14...he said that's sounds cool! And with that we had a date!  I wanted to get married at 10:11... but whether it was a.m. or p.m. I doubt that it would have worked... 


Let me try this again.....

@tygrrlily ...It took us forever to agree on a date. Every date I offered....LOL!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
