    Congrats soon2bemsleblanc!! I checked out the Greeting Card Village, and their stuff seems really nice- let us know how your STDs and invites come out when you get them!

      I know!!! I only have two people with flights booked - no one besides us with rooms yet. I feel like I should be WAY further along than that - I'm trying to resist the urge to start badgering people. We have a clause in our group contract that states that 50% has to be paid by April 5th, so I am nervous that people aren't thinking about it. Our invites just went out though, so hopefully people will start thinking about it more. We'll see. If we don't end up having a lot of people, we will probably just do a shorter cocktail reception with dancing, not a full on dinner! I always figured I'd just do the ipod system - Matt's brother is pretty 'hip' or whatever - he should be able to pick some good music for dancing!

        Today is our RSVP deadline and currently 50% of our guest list hasn't so much as responded.
        Those that we knew were going to attend booked in October when we did (a whole 9 people including 3 children)... Sadly its only my side. With the exception of one or two people, its pretty safe to say that they aren't going to attend. It boggles my mind how some of the girls on here have 30+ guests attending.

          I agree DWandMJ!! I am nervous because we haven't even sent out our invites yet! But we have told everyone, so they have been saving (lets hope!). No way would we beable to get 30+ guests!

          Nibsmom, what happens if you don't get your 50% by the deadline? I am still working on the group contract so I don't know how that all works yet.

            I'm not really sure - I know that if we don't get enough people though, it says on the contract they might consider voiding our group agreement. I'm not really sure what happens then! *stresses* Our group contract is for 15 rooms, and I'm hoping we'll be able to make at least 10, so that should be enough! As we get closer, a lot of people I assumed would be staying in doubles and bringing guests are ending up coming single and rooming with other singles, which is cutting down on our room count.

            I just realized that very silly me forgot to put an RSVP deadline on our invites, so I am making some postcards on VistaPrint (they are FREE right now! For 100!!!) to get that information out and let people know about the payment deadlines. So hopefully, that will help. I hope I'm just stressing for nothing!

                Hey Ladies! I just remembered something I've been meaning to ask! I think I've been forgetting for days...don't you hate that??

                Anyways, does anyone know the specific companies that the MP uses to book excursions? You know, at the counters down in the lobbies? I really want to check some stuff out before I get there if possible!

                Thanks!

                  Is anyone qualifying for the group promotions? If so, which ones? And was it super hard to get guests to book as part of the group rather then them going off to sites like expedia and booking at a cheaper rate? How were you able to sway guests away from doing that?
                  Thanks!!

                      Dana C tha DJ's not so bad. he's 1,265 bucks for 4 hours and you get lights and a real disco indoor reception setup w/club lights 2. You also get a "Hype Man" to announce the wedding party on entrance, to hype the guest ,call the table numbers for dinner and all that jazz. I spoke with the dude that takes care of the DJ stuff and it Sounds wonderful.
