    Just met with Zulma. She is the BOMB.
    I feel so much better about my wedding and she is such a dear, sweet person. She's one of those people you meet and you instantly want to be her best friend.

    She is so ON TOP OF IT...and willing to do ANYTHING for you.
    I'm so totally and completely excited right now I can hardly stand it!

    BTW, we moved my wedding to 5 pm. At 4 pm it is VERY HOT here. The light is also a lot better from 5-7 pm (I'm a photographer. It's important to me). The beach receptions are just GORGEOUS! It's a magical place!

      Are y'all traveling with cash, travelers checks, credit cards...? I'm undecided as to what to do. I do not want to travel with large wads of cash, but am not sure how much of an inconvenience the other choices would be. This is our first time to Mexico, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Also, any one who is traveling Continental.. did you contact the airline ahead of time to inform them that you are traveling with a dress?

      Ooo that's a really good point on contacting the airline about traveling with the dress. I'm curious how everyone is getting their dress there. I don't want the airline to just throw it around.....

        Yay, glad to hear that she is taking good care of you. I'm sure that is what it comes down to; she gives the brides who are there and about to have/having their day the top priority over ones back home. I guess that is what we will ultimately prefer, right? lol. I know, easier said than done and I'll probably freak out too lol when i'm close to the time.

        Have a a great time, Julia!

          See, it's worth it in the end! Oh, it blows that at 4pm it's really hot. That's when my ceremony is and it's on the beach. Have a great time!!

              that's great! hopefully my onsite WC will be better in person than she has been so far. still no meeting scheduled or anything, and we'll be THERE in 24 hours.
              glad you're so collected and excited, hooray!

              i called american airlines a few weeks ago. my dress counts as my carry-on. they say they won't hang it up but it can go in an overhead compartment. looks like i'll have to have it pressed there unless i can sweet-talk them into hanging it somehow!

              hopefully they're more accommodating than american airlines.

                  Hmm this is funny because when my TA called and got the run around and demanded Zulma call me today, they said she was with a bride... guess it was you! lol.

                  Seriously though, Zulma isn't responding to any of my many emails, nor my TA's emails or phone calls... I am beyond tears. I need to know I have my stuff budgeted correctly. Di- Maybe I'll forward you the email I sent her and see what you think of my amounts.
