Veryvalero's Wedding Planning Thread - Grand Sunset Princess

Recommended Posts

@@veryvalentine I wanted to have a welcome drink / dinner the first night and I was going to hand out the bags then, but as it turns out we do t get to the resort until 9pm or so! So by the time we get checked in and get to our rooms everyone will be tired, so of our guest will of been travelling since 5am!

We all arrive the same time so I would have to assemble the bags too once I get there too.

 

I haven't decided what to do yet but my mom suggest a brunch / lunch welcome the next morning. Or maybe a welcome dinner the second night??.. I don't know

 

But I think meeting them at the lobby and giving them the bags at check in is fun :) they would appreciate the bags and it would be a great welcome!

We are kind of in the same dilemma. We're actually arriving with all of our guests so that's why i'm having them somewhat prepared and then only putting one thing inside of the other and that's it. I still don't know if we will hand them out during the welcome dinner or just go around people's rooms handing them out the day we arrive. 

 

I almost feel like if i give them away the day of the welcome dinner what was the point of putting the welcome dinner on the brochure's timeline. It would be the easiest thing though.

Hey!

 

I had a family of 4 and with our bride/groom luggage upgrade we got 6 suitcases included. I used them all. One for cups, smaller one for maracas, and the other for decor and extra kid stuff. Then 3 for clothes.

 

I had welcome drinks - not a booked event just had everyone meet in the lobby bar the first evening and I handed the cups out. My OOT items were inside the cups :) everyone got to meet everyone and it was fun. People really enjoyed it.

 

Hope that helps.

Going around handing them out sounds stressful. For a couple reasons -- when you arrive you are wanting to settle and get unpacked etc and trying to get everyone's numbers could be a hassle. Then if you go and they aren't in their rooms you gotta remember who got one and didn't. I vote for just having a welcome event and handing them out! That's just me though. I arrived with over 30 of our guests and I agree about having as much as possible ready to go. My sister came and helped get them unwrapped and into beach bags to carry to the welcome drinks.

 

 

 

We landed at 230pm and were to the resort by 5pm. The welcome drinks was at 730pm. Everyone came. It was a tad stressful for me as the Cancun airport shot my nerves but I'm glad I got it over with on day one!!! People had the stuff to use. People weren't off exploring and drinking and such. Worked well for us.

Our First Aid Kits

 

I just designed our sticker for the First Aid kits and I thought the label was so cute.  We decided to keep it super simple.  I'm such a klutz that I really wanted to make sure our guests had bandaids and alcohol just in case anyone falls.

@perianjay  Thanks for your kinds words!  I'm like literally, totally, entirely, stressed. 

 

I think I need to sit down and write a good to do list because I am probably more overwhelmed than I Need to be. 

Because we have guests coming from Europe and other parts of the word, the guest list isn't finalized because they are still planning or deciding.  It's really annoying.  I keep messaging one of my cousins just to get an answer if she is coming and like, she just keeps delaying her answer.  It's so annoying.  She was like 100% coming and now I just want to know either way but she's not responding.  It's really annoying. 

 

I realize I probably won't be able to do the seating chart until the week before we leave and I didn't want to have to do those things then.  :(

    • 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.
