    75 is our MAX too. I am trying to be easy going about it but if all these people really do buy tickets....ahhh!! I just keep telling myself it will make for a very fun party. haha.


    I have to say I did most of my planning in January and February and I am SO GLAD I did that. First, I basically had my pick of vendors. Second, I haven't been stressed out really at all yet. I'm sure it will get crazier, but at least I will avoid the burnout I hope.


    My planning trip was awesome. It was just me and my mom, so we were able to get a lot done. I basically just met with people I had already hired, but it helped build the relastionship with them, you know? Plus, we had never been to Cabo, so it just gave us an idea of where things are, how to get around, etc. It helps when we are giving advice to others about the little things: renting a car, going to the grocery store, etc. My whole long detailed review is in the Private Folder, FYI.


    When will you be there in Nov for the planning trip? We will be there the 9-18 for wedding + honeymoon. Ahhh, I cannot wait.


    we got our invites at einvite.com. If you are a member of Costso, everything is 25% off and honestly, the quality is great and I totally personalized them to what I want! If you use the link Click the image to open in full size.

    "It's crazy..I thought we would have 50 people, and right now we have 72 who say they are coming. I guess I'll believe it when I see their plane tickets though...it's so hard to get an accurate count. "



    i try to warn people that this might happen....steve and i thought we'd only have 10-15 people but had almost 60!

      that's crazy! the difference between 15 and 60 is a lot more than 50 and 75!! I *should* be under budget if less than 75 come at least....

        i am sure- and we are still so far out everyone says they are coming but its SO hard to estimate who will really come. but we budgeted for 75 also- i am a little afraid it may go over- we both have really big families and then all of our friends are ready to go on a vacation! Janet- thanks for the info for invites- really appreciate it! so what details do you still have to do?

          i had her do the same for me-she has been great. i think we are going to send out the save-the-dates pretty soon- which was sooner than we were originally planning- in hopes that people may book a little earlier (before we start reducing rooms from the room block)- haha- yeah right i am sure they will still all wait until the last minute- how many invites are you guys sending out? i think we are at about 150-175 with a total of about 250 people invited-ahhhh- that seems like so many!
