Thanks Lisa! There's lots of flip flops to choose from! I remember your shoes, they were very cute!
Yes, I'm afraid I'll either get stuck and fall, or step on my dress because if i hemmed it to shoes or step on something painful

LOL I had platform flips because i was nervous to walk in anything else (you couldn't even see them lol) I got mine here:
....just when i thought things were starting to fall into place, people start to get worried about the safety in Mexico. SHEESH.
It's like there is an invisible list of "things that will eventually come up when planning your DW" .... and i thought i wouldn't have to deal with this because those that booked have been getting so excited to go.
these 3 guys (yup, guys) already put their deposits down, with 2nd deposit due mid-feb, they'd better decide asap. i have a bunch of gals paid in full, booked flights and all with less worries than they do. It's not about the money because i know they have it. without these 2 rooms, we won't have enough for the group rate, or we'll have to split a couple of the double rooms into singles to cover or find replacements! a BM's BF already can't make it
this all started when they asked a friend who's in the army to join them for the week because they needed an extra person to make a room double occupancy instead of single, he spoke about leave with his lieutenant and was advised against going - "allowed to, but highly advised to not go due to the sheer amount of violence going on in that country". (WTF, i'm pretty darn sure none of you ladies who were just there got married in a freaken war-zone).
Hearing all that and the media hype about recent violent activities makes them "uneasy", plus they aren't very experienced travelers.
Vancouver was portrayed as a "city full of gang violence" with shootings and stabbings at clubs. didn't stop them from going out to the bars and clubs at night.
I lost a bridesmaid FIVE DAYS before because of this. I would reassure them that this is very true for BORDER towns, but not so for riviera maya areas.

I am a wedding rookie so I am not sure what proper etiquette is. I am trying to figure out if it makes sense to upgrade to a larger cake for such a small party that I will be having. My motivation is mainly for pictures. Any suggestions?

Do you know that Israel is a tourist destination too? is that a country in war?! no! in fact, it is pretty safe.
In addition to going out with a blackberry ?!?! +$700 cash. Did u see the pic of that Canadian victim?! Not only the rape kit came out negative...but ..Seriously, I don't think cops based in Cancun/PDC have low self-esteem! They could've pickup sexy cougars, drunk students...instead of..getting this madame from Thunder Bay.

Down here there is a doubt about this story for all the things around not making sense.
