Four months later...I only have four rooms booked, and it's all my immediate family. We still have plenty of time so I'm not freaking out, but once October rolls around and we STILL don't have any bookings, I might have a hissy fit. I'm hoping peeps book before then, though.

    So just wanted to let you know that it's totally normal if people don't go right out and book (GingerLover is an exception to the rule!) so don't panic
    Yeah I figure at some point I will need to bully my friends into committing! LOL - The good news is my mom has offered to front the money for the deposits since FI and I are pretty much paying for 1/2 the wedding costs and I didn't want to tie up our money. I mean I got a dress shopping trip to NYC in July :)

      Wendy, what's coming up, AHR? Where are you having it? In Austin? Love it there. FI ad I may move there soon. Fingers crossed. He and the baby have been so sick for the past month. First the stomach flu and now strep (sic?) throat! Between that and traveling to NY for work and Boston for college reunion, I really could use some family around. And I think Austin would be a nice change of pace.
      I live in Houston but I am actually going to Austin to visit my best friend today. Austin is AWESOME! If it wasn't for the FI's job here in Houston we would be in Austin!

        Yup, our AHR is on the 26th. We're taking everyone out on a party barge on Lake Travis. What else is there to do in Texas in the summer besides swim!

        I think I remember you mentioning a few months ago that you might move to Austin after your wedding. Cool! Funny, I've come across quite a few people lately who have moved to Austin from LA, wanting cheaper prices and a break from the West Coast.

        Well welcome! Are you here all weekend or just today? I don't think I realized you live in Houston.

        Come all you potential Austinites, move here! LOL I'm so jealous of the larger cities (like Dallas/FW, Chicago, Jersey/NYC brides) and their BDW meetups! So far there's only one other Austin bride on here that I know of. I'm on a mission to recruit more!

          Hey Lindz......would you mind sending me that email We are sending out out STD's this month and I'd like to be able to convey to people in detail the signifigance of booking early. I would so appreciate it......

            Mornin' Ladies!!!! Just stopping in to say hello to you all and to wish you all a wonderful weekend of planning and task - doing! ;-) I was checking in on you guys via the last few pages and it sounds like everyone is in full progress mode.

            I was able to get reassigned to a new DW.com TA, Karilyn Barnett, and I freakin' LOVE her already!!!! We spent two hours on the phone the other night and she has revived my enthusiam about the wedding and the AS. My previous TA was gracious enough to send a "best wishes to you" email to us, which was kind, yet akward. Anywho, we are moving along and I've got an alchemy out on etsy for our STD's. I am actually feeling behind the curve ball, because we officially have less than 12 months left, but it is what it is........

            Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and say hello and wish you all a fantastic weekend!!! xoxoxo

                Glad you got a good TA. They will make things easier for you.

                I just decided on a Honeymoon location! We are staying at the Excellence Playa Mujeres Aug 28-Sept 4. It looks so awesome. Secrets Maroma was about the same price, and thats where I thought I would go, but I really fell in love with the Excellence. I am using a friend's TA who is great, so much better than my crazy wedding lady. She said any sale any drop in price we will get, no need to rebook or anything.

                Have a great weekend everyone! I will be working on my planning thread this weekend. I need to do it now or else I will just forget everything!

                  WOOOOOOOOOW!!!!! I just checked out this place and I say you've made an excellent choice!! I particularly like the hammocks over the pool. That's where I'd be aaaaaaall day long. I'm so excited for you!!

                    Ladies that have already been married, this one's for you!

                    What do you think the chances are that I'll be able to convince (or that they'll be kind enough on their own) the onsite WC to have my chivalri chairs moved from the ceremony on the sky deck to my reception at plaza zavaz for the set-up up fee?

                    I am having 70 guests and its not in my budget to order them twice but I am sooo obessed I cannot do without them. I know that they are def in for my ceremony as I cannot imagine looking back at pictures and seeing any other chairs there. (Again, I am going for the antique look/feel and the other chairs just won't cut it.)

                    I am having a cocktail reception between the ceremony and reception somwhere other than the reception site. (They are also moving my ceremony flowers down and don't want my guests to be there as they set up) so there should be enough time to have htis done.

                    My WC told me I had to order chairs twice but hoping you'll think that I'll be able to work something out once I am there.

                    Thanks!
