Veryvalero's Wedding Planning Thread - Grand Sunset Princess

Recommended Posts

@@veryvalentine the last minute bookings must be driving you crazy! My TA suggested I make a cut off date early on so we set it for the end of October (for our Jan wedding) when our final numbers are due for the hotel. She said she doesn't mind being the bad guy telling people they can't book so that it takes the pressure off the bride and groom She said she's even done this for couples early on when they reach the numbers they budgeted for. 

 

I also think you should create an etsy shop - your creations are gorgeous!! :)

Ya I think she's happy with all the last minute bookings.  I'm going to chat with her tomorrow and maybe introduce of cut of date of say, tomorrow!  hahaha.  We didn't think anyone would book after our deadline came and went.

We leave in 23 DAYS! Crazy how that happened:) We actually have had a few people cancel and we still are trying to confirm who from my fiance's side that live in Jamaica are coming just for the wedding day. So I can't completely finalize my seating chart and placecards. I had to mix everything back up last weekend because of one addition, but now I think I have it squared away with a few seats still available at 1 table for any more joiners. I just want to move things to the "done" column!

 

Oh yeah, except his mom still hasn't made her plans so there is that wild card that I'm trying not to worry about anymore...

Omg insane!!!!  @@beckys98

 

We haven't even attempted seating chart.  We know people are coming, we just don't know how many in total.  And the reason it's random is because we have guests that are coming from mexico, Europe and other parts of latin America, so they didn't book in our group rate because our group rate was only within in Canada.  So they book on their own and they are literally taking it very casual despite the deadlines.

 

Wishing you all the best of luck!  Good luck with the wild card- hope she is able to make it.

@@veryvalentine I'd be losing it!! Holy smokes! Are you even going to be able to do escort cards? I guess if I knew it was the LAST thing I could do I'd be sure to just have all my packing and stuff done so I'm not scrambling at the end, but I'm a little on the controlling side so I'd be freaking out!

 

Hope you have better anxiety management skills than I do ;) Haha.

We depart for mexico in 26 days!  It's insane.

 

We have the majority of our projects completed.  We ended up making a little booklet of info with a map, hotel, info, guest info, photographer info, room number cheat sheet, playa del Carmen info, bride and groom recommended day trips, the FI turned it into a 14 page booklet and it's called, "Guide to Fiesta like there is no manana"  with our hashtag.  #BesosInparadise2015

 

I'll take some pictures once we are finished printing it, we have our door handle designs, stationary for the wedding reception!  It's kinda overwhelming thinking of everything we've done.  I'm exhausted.

 

We have a shorter to do list now. 

 

One of the most difficult tasks we have is to try to figure out our first dance song.  Our song doesn't really match the mood of the wedding so we opted to not use it.

I'm not really into the cheesy steriotypical songs so I'm trying to avoid Sam Smith, and the John legends and John Mayers, nothing against them but I just don't want them for my first dance. 

 

What do you ladies think about this one?

One month from today we will be arriving at the hotel and checking in!  Crazy!

 

So I thought we had all our guests finalized but as it turns out 4 decided to book today and we are still looking at another 4 pending.  ahhhh!!

I wonder if this is normal.  I tried to get my number for the OOT bags but honestly at this point some of them will be getting a more toned down version of it.  I can't keep up.  

 

I finished my bridesmaid jewellery and I'm so excited.  I'm going for a gold and cream look.
