Haven't started packing!  I've got all my extras in my bedroom in one area now though.  I'm a list person - I will plan what I will need/wear for every night - that way I don't overpack clothing.  I also roll clothes - saves space and wrinkling of clothes.  we leave saturday and I am off as of Wednesday so I have mucho time!

For when?  One of my bridesmaids is flying out of Vancouver and she paid less than that for a single supplement - one week, including taxes - Jan 22.

 OMG - that sucks!  LOL -  maybe you can think of the vomiting as good luck - like when a bird drops one on you or when it rains on your wedding day!  Do you think the dresses really need to be dry cleaned?  I launder tonnes of stuff that say dry clean only - all the time - and there is no damage - silks, cashmere, formal wear etc included.  I hand wash or use the hand wash setting on my front loader. 
Glad your dress changes are simpler!

 Awesome - thanks! Gorgeous!

What is everyone doing for rehearsal dinners?

We're not doing a rehearsal dinner. We opted to do a welcome cocktail party for all our guests, so that they can meet each other!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
