    So the TA called my Mom yesterday and told her that there are only 2 seats left on the plane to the Dominican!!!! There are a bunch of people that are "supposedly" going to book, but they are probably out of luck. The only other option for them is to book through another company and fly down 2 days before us, and stay in a different section of the resort (which isn't bad). They won't get the group rate now, since they didn't book with us, but that is their problem now.

      Erica that is their problem, glad you feel that way. Did fi's brother book yet?

      I think we've all given our guests plenty of notice to book by now. we can't hold their hands through the booking process.

        That sucks, but that is their problem for not booking earlier. We have people saying that they are coming, but haven't booked yet. We gave everyone until August 15 to send in their RSVP cards so I'm hoping the stragglers will get booked before then. My TA said that if they wait longer than that there may not be as many rooms available, or flight options. We'll see I guess. My dad hasn't even booked yet which is a whole other story in itself.

          That's right....they snooze....they lose!

          Well, I realized on Friday that my MOH is overextended. I spent the day with her and we did talk wedding, and marked some days on the calendar, but after going through it with her, I realized she over extends herself among her friends. I JUST found out that she is the MOH in another wedding in 3 weeks.

          For being a MOH in the other wedding, she didn't seem too involved, which makes me realize how she hasn't been too involved in my planning either. I send her stuff and she doesn't say anything. I am trying not to take it personal and have even resolved to not call her unless she calls me. When I call her lately she has been kind of weird - so I'll give her some space.

          We were trying to get a date together for the "assembly party", but one of the BM's can't come the week I wanted. I guess I am going to just sit down over the next couple of weekends and get our invites out myself. We may have to do the assembling of everything else in September. Everyone's calendars are filled for August.

          Yesterday I ordered the envelopes for the "tears of joy" packets. I also ordered some cute straws to include with my cups.

            Erica, I am glad you realize its their fault. That can be tough to do but they are the ones who have put it all off. It is so crazy how quickly these things fill up.

            Celina, sorry your MOH doesnt know her lack of commitment sucks!!! I mean is she clueless or do you think maybe jealous?

              Celina hopefully your moh will come around. Maybe she doesn't realize that you could really use her help because wedding planning is a lot of work, especially when you have diy projects like a lot of us bdw brides have.

                I'm scheduling an assembly party in August for my wedding programs with the raffia fans, maybe the menus too, and the pashminas. I was thinking the end of august. My sister is my moh and she actually driving me crazy because she is constantly asking how she can help me. Which is a good thing so finally i figured we should start getting these projects done.

                  No Steph, I don't think she's jealous. She has 3 kids ages 1, 3 and 6. Her husband works ALL the time and is never home so she just stays home with the kids and has her hands full with them. Even when she comes over, the kids are always right there - and they are VERY loud. I have two kids but they are never that loud. I think she is overwhelmed with her life and doing it all. She totally needs a break. When I was helping her move, I noticed her and her husband both talk VERY loud to eachother. I kept thinking, why are they shouting?

                  I don't know, I am just disappointed in her lack of involvement. She was supposed to call the other BM's to tell them about the assembly day - and nope - she never called them.

                  Whatever...I am just going to sit back and see how long it takes her to call me and when she asks why I haven't called I am going to tell her that lately when I talk to her she seems distracted and doesn't seem that interested in scheduling things or making plans, so I figured I would just stay away until she she was ready and that if something really important needed to get done, that I would just do it myself since she seems so preoccupied with everything else.

                  Sorry for the rant.

                    Danielle, from an outsider looking in I wanted to tell you that I think you are so lucky to have your sister as your MOH and that she is so willing to be involved is wonderful!

                      Danielle - FI brother hasn't booked, and now may be missing out. I'm not too worried about it though. As for your sister, you are lucky to have someone that wants to help. My MOH asks me if there is anything for her to do, but since she is 2 hrs away and a lot of my stuff is DIY, I usually just do it myself, but I am okay with it. Hmmm...she is coming on next weekend and then again 2 weeks later, maybe we can get the bathbombs finished!

                      Celina - That is too bad that your MOH is preoccupied to help you out. I think that giving her a little time might get her to come around.
