Feeling pressure? That's sooo soon. Did you get to the states yet?

Yes I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack! But it is all coming together, and everything still be amazing. I haven't gone to the states yet. I'm hoping Thursday , one item I ordered may be longer but I want to get that done as soon as possible! I ordered all of this paper to do my menus, welcome letters etc. and can't put it together until I go to the border!

When do you leave?

    @cfinkenbine my vendors are costing me an arm and a leg, but I budgeted on the dress lol so I went cheap. It is pretty insane to  pay $800 for each vendor, although I think the resort would have charged the same $800 just built in the final cost. prices for these weddings are NOT what they use to be

    I was looking at wedding package pricing for our resort just for 5 years ago, and it is crazy how much the prices have risen!

    I just had to do a wire transfer to my venue today in USD. $2500 cad was almost $2900 usd. Talk about hidden costs!

    This really stressed me out! But my resort allows me to pay on site and they charge in pesos, so I've been told, so I hope to avoid that nasty exchange fee with USD.

    Tipping is another thing that I feel like is a hidden fee. I mean "all inclusive" right? I know it isn't required, but it is frowned upon not to tip. Especially when I never had even thought about tipping my vendors!
