@calgarybride2015 I think I definitely feel more comfortable holding this bouquet because I don't have to worry about which way it's being held. And when I add the silver ribbon around the stems I think it will look beautiful. I think my first one is really unique but at the same time it's so structured...

Just got Col's opinion and he really liked the second, more round bouquet. And the 3 lilies instead of 5 in the BMs bouquets.

Thank you ladies for your feedback. I really appreciate it! Keep it coming :)

It's been ages since I've posted! Just checking in as its 6 months until the big day!!! All the Canadians have paid in full so that's 17 plus Colin and I coming from here and the 24 UK guests with their own payment dates. I still have people saying they're coming and booking so we'll see...

Yay 6 months!! Time will fly from here on out.. I noticed the 6 month point was when it became a blur and now i'm a little over a month away and can't believe it. So exciting and it's great that most guests are fully booked!

@Wafflesmom @perianjay Thanks Ladies!  Ahh seeing that 5 months+ in my ticker is crazy!  

 

@krystalball It is a relief!  I wasn't stressed about a certain number of people booking because we didn't get any wedding package perks with it anyway.  But definitely happy to have more a final number to work with.  I guess as we get closer we'll be able to figure out the exact number and be able to start organizing favours, seating charts etc

 

My Mom is sending my bridal shower invitations out next week!  I am having my shower on February 7th, 2016 and she needs rsvp's by January 7th.  We figured with Christmas coming, if we get them out now it gives people a chance to respond before they are drowning in Christmas cards, invitations etc

 

I don't have much in terms of updates except that we are going to start working on our Wedding Wishes soon to send to the resort.  Although we won't have our coordinator until 3 months before, they will start pre-booking some things for us which is awesome.  I heard back from the resort photographer and they confirmed we can pay in USD or pesos, our choice.  I'm looking forward to getting more DIY projects done and will update as I go. 

 

I'm been doing an online event planning course and found the perfect terminology for the dress code for a destination wedding (if you're worried about some guests showing up in their swimwear) that I thought I'd share:  

Sophisticated Resort Wear - Upscale sundress for her and subtly-coloured linen trousers for him

I played around a bit more:

It's a bit more circular. Thoughts?

@deecol I still have to go back and catch up on all your posts prior to my hiatus but wanted to tell you I saw your post about "sophisticated resort wear" and quoted it to my father tonight. My mum thought it was the perfect way to put it although my dad followed up with "does that mean I can't wear my bathing suit?" lol

I actually said no swim suits please! But I also listed what was appropriate to wear as well.

@ashhtayy haha your Dad's funny!  I think the term definitely needs some further explaining, but I thought it was cool to actually have a term to use.  I'll probably throw a little blurb in to clarify, I've had a few people ask already what to wear, including my Dad too lol


@acw271011 Thank you!  I think I'll stick with this arrangement... unless I find more flowers I want to add  :P
