Is anyone from Philadelphia or the surrounding suburbs having a destination wedding? We always have something wedding related going on in the area. Please share any info that you think may help another person out. Dates for shows, items to sell or trade, or just advice, etc...

 

Congrats to all and best of luck!

Hi! I am living in the Philly suburbs and I am planning a destination wedding for October 2015.  I am planning to have my wedding in Jamaica. 

 

I recently went to a bridal show.....there was some good ideas: t-shirts, invitations etc.  Being a destination wedding bride, most ideas at the bridal shows didn't really help me.  If you are having an at home reception, then it is really helpful as far as caterers and other vendors. 

 

The one thing that has been great for me is the travel agent.  If there are any Philly brides that are in need of a travel agent, I have a great one.  She has set up visits to the venues in Jamaica for me and I am also going again in June with my travel agent to a resort. 

 

Happy planning!

Wow! You really do have a great planner! You are so good...planning early! ;) I began one year from my wedding date. It all seems to be working out nicely though.

 

I had gone to a few bridal & trunk shows in the beginning. You are right. Most of the resources there are not for a DW. Good freebies though.

 

You have to comment on any & everything to get your postings up to 150. (Just type thanks or congrats...)Then you'll be able to see photos and templates. People have some good ideas on here that may help you in planning.

I kind of had my own vision & just reached 150 this weekend so I already had bought or created everything by the time I could view. Oh well!

 

I'm in the Philly suburbs as well. Main Line.

 

Congrats and Good luck with your planning. I'm in the home stretch now! :wub:

Thank you!!!  I wish I was in the home stretch.....I am a little stressed because my parents don't want to fly and suggested we do cruise....they will drive to NY or Bmore to get on the ship.  Not at all my vision for a wedding..so I am keeping to my first plan.  This is my second marriage, so my dad has walked me down the isle.  I am doing it my way this time!!! 

 

I lived in Blue Bell but we recently moved to DE. 

 

Thanks for the tips and good luck!

I'm in DELCO, recently engaged. I am debating between Jamaica and Mexico unless I win a wedding reception. I am planning for a May or June 2016 wedding, I'm hoping I can find some resorts with great incentives

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
