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.

Oh how nice of your mom! Whew, what a relief
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!
I LOVE Lake Travis!!! And Austin!!! Such a cool town

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
That's such great news!!! Hiring my TA Wendy Hicks was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Such a relief to have someone so helpful. Seriously girls, if anyone has a TA that is more of a stress for you rather than a resource, you should look into finding someone more helpful!

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!
AHHHHH that resort is FABULOUS! My friend just got married there!

I have report cards to finish right now, as well as finishing last minute wedding stuff. I can't believe after 2 years I am only 2 weeks away!
I always emailed...never called, and I found emailing was fine.
can't wait to look at your pics, but I am heading out right now for my bachelorette party...I know you look gorgeous anyway!
SO glad it is working out!! You don't need any of that unnecessary stress! BTW all your photos are so gorgeous!
I hope you had soooooo much fun!! And 2 weeks?!?!? I can't even imagine was that feels like...SO awesome!!!!

I know, I feel the same way. But then again. AS is so not willing to budge when it comes to money, I'm not really all that surprised. Please keep me posted on your head way them and I'll do the same!
My thought exactly. I'm booking them for the ceremony and will totally bribe to have them moved. Thanks for the advice!
I think these resorts rent those chairs from an outside company. Maybe they own the chairs for the wedding, but have to order more for the reception? Who knows! How much are they charging you for the chairs? Maybe you can try to talk them down on the price if they will not move them for you. I think I am renting my silver chiavari chairs for $5 per chair. Surely they can help you on the price. $1500 is ridiculous!!!!!
