Hi All! So i figured I would start a thread that has my projects as I work on them, since I have a LONG engagement and plan on having some unique DIY projects and details that would be worth sharing.

 

At this point- We are in the early stages of the process, and just got back from the Karisma Bride's Dress Rehearsal where we confirmed that this company is the one for us. and the property we selected was Azul Sensatori in the Riviera Maya (Or now called Sensatori Riviera Maya)

 

We asked our bridal party with the following... the wine bottles for the girls, and tequila for the boys

We have chosen to not do Save the dates, but rather are sending out invitations early, and then will be using our wedding website to gather RSVP's and correspond with guests who confirm, as the date approaches. They were DIY using paper ordered online via papercircle (Canadian online retailer) and Michaels supplies.

 

Here are the invites....

Attached File  INVITE PAGE 2.jpeg   101.44KB   15 downloads

Attached File  INVITE PAGE 3.jpeg   107.59KB   14 downloads

Attached File  INVITE BACK.jpeg   101.15KB   12 downloads

 

 

They are all directing guests to our website with both the QR code, and the website address:

We will update it with more fun information and itinerary as the date is closer- but right now, we are keeping guests focused on the booking and RSVP process.

 

My next project will be ordering my wedding dress, which I plan on ordering via Jasmine's Bridal for a custom recreation... well actually 2 dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the reception.

 

I will be making place cards that are inspired by these:

along with other projects like passport programs (that will be mailed out with everyone travel documents by my TA), OOT bags, door hangers, programs, felllow guest ice breaker info, etc...

 

Any feedback on the website? Or on my progress thus far? Im happy to have a lot of time to do many of these projects... it will keep me busy for the next 18 months!

    I can't see pictures yet, but I would love to see the labels. I am making gift bags full of stuff for the ladies and was going to add tumblers with a bow. I have labels that say bridesmaid and I was going to have journals bonded at staples. But the wine bottles are good and ill use the journals for those that can't drink. I was trying to come up with ways to ask the groomsmen. A few of them aren't yet drinking age. I was thinking he can use tequila and groomsmen shot glasses. I'm not sure what to do for the younger guys

    So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
