As of now we are expecting about 35 + guests..... we can not book yet, as it is too early for 2008 bookings. This is all new to me, and I would just like to know where to get started!
      The reason it is too early, is the budget. Most places won't set there projections for their business until 12-16 months prior to the new year. It also depends when their fiscal year begins. Based on these projects, they set the price. I would call back in a couple of months or ask when they will be booking for next year.

          My travel agent said that I had to had a number before i booked through the tour company, and I just think its hard to get an exact numer now, plus they told me that its too early for 2008 booking, because 2007 prices are still in effect, I have to wait until early spring. so in the meantime do I go around trying to get exact numbers, or should I just send out invites!? so many questions!

            Just an FYI we sent out our invites early (real early) and to be honest it didn't help. How about you just sit down with your FI and maybe parents and "try" to get a rough number on who might go, then give that to your TA so that they have something. OR TT Tammy (host) she might be able to help you in figuring out some of your information.

              I can book in early spring, I have looked at a few photographers....but we are still undecided about 2 resorts..... we have been to the Grand Palladium Kantenah and the Barcelo Maya Colonial , and loved them both. Both resorts have great wedding packages, but if we go with the Barcelo (which Ryan is leaning towards) we have to use their official wedding photographer. I checked out his pictures, they are nice. If we choose the other resort we can book our own photographer, and I have conacted Claudia Rodriguez, and she does beautiful photography.

                I think thats what we are going to have to do, just make a rough list. Right now it seems like everyone says they will be going, so we have a good number, more than we expected, its just if they actually hold to it.....

                  We are getting married in the mayan riviera, there are 2 resorts we are looking at.... we are expecting about 35+ people as of now, the number may go up, as family overseas may be coming now too. I had picked a date, but apparently you have to be in Mexico for 4 working days before you can get married... so it will be bumped up a few days.

                    You may want to double check on the required number of days you have to be in Mexico b-4 you get married. Cabo hast he same, but our WC was able to work our wedding date in, so we'll only be there for 2 days before the wedding.. Just an FYI..
