Need to Vent

02 August 2007 - 01:07 AM

So its been a while since I have been on here. I either get very obsessed with something or I am very lazy about it. Anyway..... My FMIL just got back from Ireland, my FI was born there and moved here when he was 5. My FI has a huge family in Ireland on both his father's side and his mothers side. Last year many of them came from Ireland to L.A. for his sisters wedding. Now my FMIL has said things to me like well I don't know if the family will go "all the way to Mexico" for the wedding. She just got back from Ireland yesterday and told me everyone is so happy for us but wondered why we were having the wedding in Mexico and that its was too far away. Excuse me its a two hour flight from L.A. . You're telling me they can fly all the way to L.A. from Ireland but not fly an extra 2 hours, Give me a Break!!!! It makes no sense whatsoever!!! It irritated me because I know some people think a DW is different and some don;t understand it. More than 3/4 of our guests live outside of L.A. so regardless of where our wedding was they would need to travel. Thanks for letting me vent as I know you will all understand.

Dreams Reception..Cascada or Terrace

17 July 2007 - 04:33 PM

I am getting married at Dreams, Los Cabos next July. My ceremony will be at the gazebo however as far as the reception goes the pics for the two different sites haven't helped much. I cant tell which I like best. Does anyone have good pics of the two different sites? Its either the Cascada or Oceana Terrace.
Thanks,
Jess

Invitations...How Much??????

13 July 2007 - 05:22 PM

So I have been looking at invitations and have been unable to really figure out a price so I went to Papyrus so they could inform me about all the different enclosures and materials. I was astounded when they quoted me $1500 Is that how much invitations cost? I want pocket invitations in order to include all of the neccessary enclosures like travel and accomodations. I didnt want to make them since I was a bit stressed by making the STD's but now I think if i use the materials from cards and pockets I could make them for a lot less. However I will have to make about 100 or so. What do you ladies think? Those that made their own with pockets and cards was it hard? Did they turn out nice? My friend told me that most people will throw them out but I still want them to look good and I feel like they are important piece of the wedding. What should I do?

Dreams Fees

13 July 2007 - 02:24 PM

I am a little confused with the fees at Dreams. I was told that the regular banquet menu is $24pp and the golden menu is $40 pp however I see a $48pp wedding fee or somemthing like that. Is that on top of the menu fee? I just emailed Mariana but I was thinking I might get a faster answer here.
Thanks,
Jess

Finished STD Boarding Passes!!!!!

12 July 2007 - 06:14 PM

I finally finished my STD boarding passes with help from a few fellow brides on this forum. Thank you very much for your help especially Jessica. Hopefully I can post the pics. I made a special pocket for the boarding pass that was labor intensive but I love the way they turned out. Lets see if the photos post.
