I think you have been switched back to a Newbie because of the new posting requirements. They changed the downloading rules and the designation amounts.

There's a whole thread on this - I experienced the same thing. The minimum number of posts has been increased to 150 to move to Jr. Member - this will help with forum traffic, manage downloads of attachments and encourage postings (and the thread explains more). So we're both back to Noobs, but if we keep up our activity, we'll be back to Jr. Members in no time!

Since she is offering the photos as a wedding pressy and we wouldn't be paying her, would she still need a permit?
Anyone know the process of getting a permit? We are only two months out so time is getting short!
Thank you in advance!
As long as your photographer stays as a guest for at least 3 nights you don't need a permit or anything. We are paying our photographer to go but they consider them a guest either way. Hope this helps!

Both my sister and Mom avoid the topic of booking like the plague! My mom hasn't even given me a for sure yes! Ugh. I just keep telling myself that it will all work out. I guess I was just curious as to how your guests were cooperating so that I know for my own peace of mind that I did not make a poor choice in terms of a TA. I felt it was a good deal, you obviously did and so do your guests! So that alone makes me feel better!
Meesh - good luck! Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!

Thank you for the info on the photographer Shanda! It makes me feel so much better about the whole thing and it's great to be able to stop stressing about this important element!
I ordered patio lanterns with the battery powered LED lights. I figured it would be easier for hanging without the cords. I ordered them off the Asian Ideas site at the same time as I ordered the lanterns.
As for the guest booking issue... I totally understand! My Dad was right on it, he booked right away but everyone else took their sweet time. My bridesmaid, my FH's sister, still hasn't booked (final payment was due June 24th!), or ordered her dress -in fact I don't think she'll be showing up...
It's funny how everyone is totally into a destination wedding when you ask around at the beginning, but when it comes to actually putting the money down and booking the trip, they all disappear. I'm expecting 11, 13 including my man & I. We invited 37. Oh well!

When we first had the idea of getting married abroad (given that we live in the UK) we thought we'd better check who'd be up for coming to Mexico so our first thing we did was ring around our nearest and dearest family and friends and ask. Amazing how they were all majorly excited and definite yes's....then when it comes to getting people to committ so i can book (I booked for everyone in the end so we're all in one group booking) people are less excited. even my mum and my brother kicked up a fuss about it all and said they may not be able to come (
In the end we listened to concerns (its expensive to fly from here to Mexico!) and tried to compromise as much as we could. but we drew the line when family members started suggesting that we get married somewhere else - England or somewhere more local in Europe!!!!! I spent hours making sure they knew, in no uncertain terms, were we getting married anywhere else other than Mexico - its where we got engaged and had the most amazing holiday ever back in February.
Eventually people came round. some couldn't make up their minds so we've just booked without them and they can sort themselves out if they want to come.
But i know how frustrating it is. I spent 2 weeks being upset, angry and soooo frustrated - especially when my own brother told me he wouldn't be there.
I would suggest, stick at it. if it takes you arranging to meet them all at your TA, do that. i did it with my mum and made sure she didn't leave until it was booked! We have 21 booked (inc me and FH and kids) and hopefully another 4 or 5 will be booking themselves. not bad I don't think for something people are going to have to fly half way round the world for!! ) but trust me, as frustrating as it is now, it's worth it the end when you get them all booked.
anyway, not much help, but wanted to show my support more than anything!
