    Well, let's not get too ahead of ourselves...I have 15 rooms (30 people) booked or BOOKED THROUGH DEPOSIT. SO, that doesn't mean they have officially booked, they have simply put down the $300 deposit...let's hope they don't back out! I sent them a "nice" email 2 weeks saying the rooms had to be booked by April 23rd, or I have to release the rooms. If I release the rooms, instead $400 a night, they will be $640 a night. I think that motivated them a little. So, all of FI's guys have booked...11 groomsmen (2 cant go) and his family. I have 2 bridesmaids that have booked. Hopefully, they will by the end of this week.
    Lindz thats a great rate. Dont we all know about last minute people.... April 23rd will be busy for your TA so you should encourage people to do it all of next week and not to wait until Friday. All of my guests listened to me when I told them that, except for FMIL - and then she panicked when could not get a hold of TA... Luckily it all worked out but....

    $400 a night for your rooms are awesome. My guests are all paying more than that and your hotel is sooooooooooo nice. Thats great for you!!!!!!

    So, tell me about these invites... Are you going to send them to everyone invited including those who have already said they could not go or the ones who have not decided yet? I am just thinking that if I could not go to a wedding and then got an invite, or if I said I could not go but then saw people who were going got invitations and I did not get one - it might be awkward... I don't mean you should not do them - b/c I loved my invites and I know how AWESOME it is to see your name and FI's name and the statement that you are getting married in print - it feels so amazingly good - I just want to make sure you have thought of this before you commit to the $ & time to find them, assemble them, etc.

      Thanks! I am definitely doing some more research on the place. It looks amazing! People's comments on here sound so positive. I am hoping we can sneak away for a weekend to head down there and check out a few places - it depends on time and budget!

      Thanks again!

        I actually think it's a lot less DIY than you think. There's no cutting or gluing, just assembling. I helped my BF when I was her MOH put together her pocket fold invites and fold them and all that and we did it together in an hour while watching tv and we did 150 of them!

          guttingly tho, I just weighed myself and I've put on about 3lbs so now I've seriously got to sort myself out. I have been slack on the working out the past few weeks so I shouldn't really be that surprised but still sucks! at least it's given me a kick up the backside that I need to get back on it again. tomorrow is a new day and i'm going to rock it!

          and now do you see why it would be a shame to have a veil!?!?
          I am with you, I haven't had time to workout and stress has been getting to me and all I want is pizza... no joke. So I'm at the same place as you are!

          I say, we get back to working out and hold ourselves accountable and check in. We'll post in on FB everytime we workout. I am going hiking first thing tomorrow morning!

          I went for my last dress fitting a week ago and it was too tight in the ribs as well. She made it that way so it wouldn't fall down. It was so tight I couldn't breathe and I could not stand it. So, she made it looser, but then we added a one shoulder strap to hold it up. I think you should tell her if it is not done the way you want it.

          Katie,your dress looks beautiful!
          That's good to know! I was hoping I wasnt the only one who didn't have a corset that my dress was made super tight. I can breathe but only slightly, it's fine though.

          I can't wait to see your dress Meaghan!

            I agree with Amy, I thought about this long and hard and decided not to send invites to people who had given me a definite no. I felt it was odd sending them an invitation to an event they already declined. So I just plan to send everyone that wasn't able to make it an annoucement that we got married so they know they were thought of on our day.

              I sent invites to people who had already booked and those who hadn't given a definite answer. I didn't send them to people who already said no because I thought it would be a waste of time and money. I really went back and forth about whether to send invitations because most of my guests paid their deposits in October and I didn't send out invitations until February. I kept saying we already know they're going since they booked but I guess it's a necessary formality. BTW nobody who wasn't already booked has booked since I sent out the invitations so now I feel like I wasted my time sending invites to the "maybes" too.

                I also sent invites to those who had already booked or to those who I didn't have a definite answer from. I felt that by sending invites to those who declined may also irritate the guests....I didn't want them to feel pressured, guilty, etc.. by having us send them an invite after saying no.

                    You may want to let your bank know you'll be charging a large $ amount at a possible foreign merchant (I'm not sure if the charges will come from the headquarters in Miami or if they'll come from Mexico). I would hate to see the charge declined because your bank thinks it's fraud :)

                    I work in the card services department at a credit union, just so you don't think I'm a weirdo handing ouy random advice.

                    Other than that, good luck!!

                      Alright girls, so I just made my final wedding payment today!!! Amy did you pay yours too? Surprisingly this felt like a huge relief, so nice to have this done!

                      A few things I found out... sooo the dress pressing pricing was sent to me on like dry cleaning brochure and it said 75,00.... which I was confused about because it's a comma and so I asked if it was pesos and it is. So my dress pressing is $7.50, LOL!

                      I was warned by my WC that the onsite coordinators (although raved about) are in fact the dreaded Lomas. Sooo she told me to expect set up fees depending on what I brought. So just be warned.

                      Also, I wanted to give all you future brides that are just starting this process with your coordinator that they are very busy. My coordinator, Kiara, said she currently has 176 brides that just she takes care of. That's just crazy! She's also training a new person who will help alleviate some of the load but still. Be patient and be polite, that is how I really got through this VERY easily with my coordinator.

                      Last but not least, I bought FI a car today, it's totally under my name but it's the first thing we have that we really share and it feels crazy and wonderful and made me realize I'm sharing every aspect of my life with this man, so nuts!

                      I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
