It's 2006! Use technology! I think it would be tacky to send an invitation via email but to get RSVP's this seems smart and easy! Let your Grandma show off her skills!

i did both...

 

 

 

i had my fiance create a site with some basic wedding information including a place to RSVP to the wedding...that way we could get an idea of how many people were going to go...

 

 

 

then 2 months before the event, we sent out formal invitatins which actually motivated some people to go that did not RSVP online (about 8 more people)...

 

 

 

i also had my fiance add an events page so people could also RSVP to group events we were planning like welcome dinner, snorkelling, surfing, sa party, etc.

While we were down in Los Cabos my FI came up with the cutest idea for our save the dates...

 

 

 

He wants to take a photo of us and put it in a silver frame that says "Los Cabos" at the top and our wedding date "07-07-07" at the bottom. Then when our guests come to our wedding we will have a photo taken of their family and mail it back to them with our thank you notes.

 

 

 

At first the guests will have something around their home reminding them about our upcoming celebration and but in the end they will have something reminding them of the awesome time they had in Los Cabos.

 

 

 

Seeing as this was a last minute idea while we were there I had to act quickly! I went to the business center at our hotel and emailed a photographer that I had been concidering, Manuel Burgoin, to see if he could help us out. He met with us at our hotel the next day and agreed to take some pictures for us at sunset. He is a really great guy and we had a lot of fun taking the pictures. I should have the results in a few days.

 

 

 

We searched for silver frames while in Los Cabos but everytime I found one I liked the shop only carried 1 or 2 of that style. I need around 15-20. Any suggestions as to where I can find those awesome Mexican silver type frames in bulk? Also has anyone had stuff engraved through some of these on-line places? I looked at CreateAfavor.com but I am not sure how the quality will be.

 

 

 

Any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks girls!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
