How were you able to place "links" in your wording on your weddingwire website? For the life of me i cant figure it out. People continue to ask me how to get to certain pages or what the site for our TA is. ( even when the entire link is posted there) it seems easier to just have something for them to clink and get access too. Thank you!!!

@@racht33 If you go to edit the text, select the word/words you want to hyperlink and click on the button I highlighted with green on the picture. Then it will let you enter the address for the link, you click ok and it has been hyperlinked!

How have I missed so much! You are so creative and am so jealous of that. I love the hangers, how did you get the ribbon tied perfectly? I think that alone would be a struggle for me lol

 

I love the look of the suspenders, I think it completes the outfit. It looks sharp!

 

And don't be hard on yourself during these last two months. I agree with everyone that I would consider myself very lucky if my to do list (2 months from the wedding date) looked like yours.

I don't know if they'll get to take pictures with the hangers for the guys. most of the pictures I've seen for guys getting ready is them putting on their ties or things like that. Their sessions are way shorter than ours because it takes them like an hour to get ready and that's it, so jealous :P.  I just thought it would be a nice touch anyway for them :)

thank you :). The bows is kind of a cute story, when I was growing up in the 90s bows were everywhere lol and my mom had the dining chairs with cushions and the cushion's straps were big enough to make nice bows. So sometimes I would play and make perfect bows on every chair, so let's just say I got plenty of practice. The one on the bride hanger there on the picture is actually a bit uneven and it bugs me hahah. 

 

I'm finding the planning a little overwhelming now. I'm trying to make working out my priority right now, but usually by the time i get home from work and everything I only have time for working out or doing something wedding related. It's frustrating.

Yeah, ours was $150, so even less of an incentive to pay the full amount haha. We have a couple of people who want to jump ship now and go to the hotel next door that is about $200 cheaper. I don't even know if that's the best idea, considering they'd be out of $150 if they do that, but who am I to tell people what to do. 

 

@@TinkerSofi Why would anyone change resorts to save $50?!? Unless they specifically want to be separate from the group (which is possible). I don't get it.

 

P.S. As much as I'm personally going for a more casual wedding, I vote for the suspenders  :)

@@ashhtayy  Below is the last email I sent to our guests - about 5 days before the (real) booking deadline. We scooped up about another 10-12 people with this (out of a total of about 30 booked with our TA). I also texted a few people who had RSVP'd yes but had not yet booked. I played dumb on that... "Hey, just wanted to make sure you got the email..." (even though I can track when they open it!).

 

Dear XXX,

 
Just a quick note to remind you that the travel booking deadline is this Friday (May 15). Booking by this date will secure the group rate for you, no matter your travel situation (different departure cities, flight + resort package, resort only, etc.). 
 
Of course, you are welcome to make your own travel arrangements. Or, if you are unable to commit at this time, our travel agent is available whenever you are to ready help you find the best rate available at that time. However, please note that the resort is filling up fast and may sell out soon.
 
Please visit our <wedding web site> for more details and, if you haven't already, please submit a preliminary RSVP. All travel details are available on the web site, and also linked to this email below.
 
<links here>
 
If you don't think you will be able to make it, please let us know via online RSVP or simply reply to this email. We'll be disappointed, of course, but we realize this trip isn't going to work for everyone. And that way, we'll quit bugging you about It ;)
 
Please contact either of us if you have any questions.

I love the sound of that email :) @@vancouverpetunia. It was probably more informative than my text haha. 

 

I really don't know if they'll switch hotels or if they'll even come, but I think if you're already short on money, losing $150 would kind of hurt. These are two young kids (young, like 23 lol) and honestly they're a bit disorganized. They had a year to save up but they didn't. At this point I'm done making accommodations for people or trying to put out fires so they can do whatever they want, they just need to let me know haha.

@@TinkerSofi Not that it really matters, but if they are saving $200 at the other resort, but losing the $150 deposit, aren't they losing $50 in the end? Or is it $200 cheaper even if you factor in the $150 deposit? I agree - you have to stop somewhere. Some people just won't be able to make it work.

They actually might be saving $200 after taking into a account the taxes for our resort and everything, which I guess it kind of makes sense.

    • 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&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;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.
