    Ya it was about $290 for the flights round trip and the rest was hotel and we traveled Sunday to Sunday. Hubby and I paid 1,500 pp for the ocean front. We did have a TA but my god did she end up being absolutely awful. They did not have rates that low she matched what I found. Expedia at the time last Feb when we booked thats what the rates were at pp.

        I have Michele and she has been pretty responsive. Usuallly a day or two. She emails my work so if I see here respond to an email and I have another question I email her back right away hoping that hse's still going thru her mail. LOL

         

        I forgot to ask you girls, when you made the final payment did they make you fill out a form and ask for id? They asked my FI and he refused.They said the bank of Mexico required it idk, that seemed a little shady but when he said he will give his id when we check in then they were fine with it.

I needed to do it for our honeymoon in May anyways so I figured I better just get it over with lol.

          Debbie and Pigpig, they are even nicer in person.
           

          Lisa, I'm sorry to hear about your bridesmaid. Maybe you can give her the pieces for her birthday or for Christmas?


          Also ladies I just went to look at rates to book our anniversary trip for next year. The rates are only out until October and they are almost double what we paid!! Is this possible??? Has anyone else seen this or is just because those dates are so far out?



          That's great to know.

          i'm hoping to get my review up for people tonight. but honestly all i can say is if you are worrying - stop and relax and just remember there is no need to worry :)

           

          ps - there is already a group of people talking about going back to celebrate our 1 yr.....and they are bring the idea to US. so trust me, your guests will love it!

            argh! that's insane that she backed out.  her loss!  you're going to have the most fabulous time!!!

She feels really bad, but what can you do. I bought her bridesmaid dress and personalized all the gifts with her name- what do I do with that? Well, she has the dress because it was sent to her city.  Oh well, I will at least have one friend there lol (my now one bridesmaid) Okay, vent over.

             

            On a good note, today at my team meeting, my manager was showing a powerpoint presentation and then the next slide had a pic of me and FI with "Welcome to Lisa's Wedding Shower" and they rolled in a cart of presents, food, and cake (and FI) lol ....was so cute and sweet :-)

                i have a timeshare at the royal and get really great rates, lower than those available to non-resort members, plus you get some bonus stuff/treatment as a "gold member".  we got a great deal & did this when we were down in april.  that prompted us to have our wedding here.  the rates were about $117 per person per nite Jr suite i believe with a promotion that was running.  if anyone wants to check with me about using our timeshare (with a very minimal fee to cover the cost of the week) just PM me.

                    I am trying to get my menu settled.  What did you all choose?  I am thinking a Beef and a Chicken.  If you get two options do you still get the option for Vegetarian, or not anymore?  How did you all "note" who got what entree?

                      Hello Ladies!! It's taken me a while to catchup! So much activity going on! Love it!!

                       

                      Lisa- I know it will all work out. So sorry that your ladies were not able to make it. At least they'll be there in spirit! It's your day.

                       

                      Bon_Air - I apologize if you thought I was making fun of the explosion in Mexico - that was not my intent. I was commenting more on how my Mom has been acting like a skittish colt every time she heard news about acts of violence.

                       

                      JoZee - I will definitely PM you!!

                       

                      Ladies - I just realized I let my passport expired - how long did it take you to get a new pasport?

                       

                      Jes - at wicky's, was it a private area that you had? I love your rehearsal dress - so fun and tropical.

                       

                      Ladies that came back and just used Fernando - did he have a large selection of makeup colors to chose from? I bought some other colors just in case. Was he open to using other makeup that you owned?
