For those if you that had read that I was considering eloping and not doing guests in Mexico, I have decided to stick with having guests. We are sending out our first wave of invitations this weekend! I am excited, but mad at myself for not getting these out sooner...oh well, I can't turn back time now...

Sammysgirl - I am so happy to hear you decided to have all the guests, I think you will have an awesome wedding and a wonderful vacation with them all! :)

 

shellk - I am all sorted I just have some minor details like picking up a garter and making place cards for the dinner and some last minute running around to do but other then that we are packed and we have handed out most of our OOT bags to the people that live here (40 of our 60 guests live in the same city as us, so we figured give them the bags here and it cuts our luggage down a lot!!)

Oh, how come you decided to change to a private reception?

 

I am working on my planning thread so it should be up today or tomorrow...

 

Right now we are having our private dinner at Botafogo at 8:45pm but we are trying to get it changed to chili's at 7pm with a buffet. it's more expensive but I do not want to wait until 8:45pm. The catch is that you have to have at least 60 people. We have 59 booked right now...hopefully they will let us.

lisa OMG you have 59 booked!!! thats awesome. They better let you! can the photographer count as #60 or did you already include them?

 

we decided because on the switch because my TA was able to negotiate an earlier dinner at bogo foto (i wanted chillis) but am just happy with an early dinner. i found out yesterday after i sent you that long PM!

Lisa- Honestly I do not know how. All I know is that my mom as freaking out and started emailing the TA because she couldnt stand the later time. I think it had something to do with which times they are "most busy"/seasonal wise. I think it came out that not as many people travel to the RIU on thanksgiving weekend and thus they allowed a "special circumstance" and an extra $200 plus 9/pp for open bar. So the cost of the private was 1900 instead of 1700 and its an extra 500 for us to have the open bar. Like Archie said I am almost SURE they will negotiate with you, espeically once you are there. Please don't mention my name or that I personally got this deal because I'm worried they'll take it away! But I do think you will be able to do it!!!!!!!!!!! don't stress!
