When Stephanie made her first appointment with me, I could already tell that I liked her and Jordan a lot. After all, they love the outdoors and festivals, two of my favorite things. The kicker was when she shared how they met: Jordan and Stephanie met through a mutual friend at one of my favorite events- drag queen bingo.
When we first chatted, both Stephanie and Jordan wanted their wedding to be memorable for their guests, and themselves. Funny moment: Jordan thought that Stephanie will be a bridezilla & Stephanie thought the same way about Jordan!
Spoiler alert: Not one bridezilla in this duo! I was thrilled when they chose one of my favorite resorts- Hyatt Ziva Cancun.
The cost. We worried that the cost was going to be too much for us to afford what we wanted.
How relaxing it was to actually plan!
We attempted to save on our cake toper by making the E and we saved on favors by bringing paper fans. It was worth it because we didn’t want to take favors that wouldn’t go to good use and become a waste!
If we could change it now, we would have decreased the number of guests to make it a smaller affair. We also would have stayed longer than our guests (Ashley note: They told me later that they wanted more solo time, which I agree with! I regret that about my own destination wedding also!
Go with your gut. This is *your* wedding day. Both you and your fiance should have the final say in all aspects of the planning. Don’t let other people influence or alter your experience!
Alpaca Your Bags was very helpful and easy to work with to coordinate travel. Guests loved the remidner emails and payment reminders. Ashley helped us with the entire process… From selecting a resort to coordinating our preview trip. We knew we wouldn’t have to worry about providing guests details outside of our wedding invitations because your team kept our guests informed of travel tips and excellent information for what to expect at an international airport. This was a huge relief for us as we had several first time international travelers.
