    Jen- I just got to look at your dress pics! They both look great, but I absolutely LOVE the 2nd one!

    And as for my non-RSVP'd showers guests, I'm just assuming they're not coming. I have JUST enough favors, so if someone happens to show up I would have to take one from the bridal party, lol!

    Thanks Shelk! I can't wait for Sunday! And Only 3 more sleeps to go for you...but idk how you're even sleeping!!! I would be WAY too excited to sleep!

      shellk - I am not too sure about the iron. We never used it but I am sure they are there. I never really trust hotel irons though as I have seen peoples clothes get ruined by too many. I am sure you could pay to have your clothes pressed though by the hotel. Sorry I couldn't be help on this topic. :)

          Jen - Since the dresses give off two very different looks I think you need to decide what you want your fiance/guests to think when they first see you...I think # 2 has more of a "WOW" factor, and # 1 more of a beautiful/soft elegance factor- if that makes sense. When I was looking at # 1 I thought it was beautiful and def could't get any better- but then I scrolled down and saw # 2 and was literally like- WOW thats stunning! So my choice for you is # 2 :) but you cant go wrong either way

            Thanks Paige, I know I am trying to picture which one will wow my FI more... I am kind of a sweatpant, jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, so I think both will make him smile when he sees me! :).. But think I am going to try them on one last time this weekend with my grandma in town.

                    Hi Ladies,
                    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned in the 180+ pages in this thread yet, but I thought it would be worth mentioning: If you have more then 60 guests you can only have your reception at Chilis.

                    Ael sent me an email today saying that BotaFogo has a maximum capacity of 60 with no dancing area, and so I can only have the reception at Chilis at the 2nd seating or have a private reception dinner for $1900. The private reception is buffet style but for $25 per person they will do table services (I am guess the $25pp is in addition to the $1900).

                    She sent a picture of Chilis (which I would post if I knew how), and it's very pretty. I know no matter where my reception is, its going to be amazing but I wanted to let you know in case any of you who are having a larger wedding had your heart set Bota.

                      Hey everybody!
                      I finally got my 2-month email from Riu, that was super exciting :) After talking with all you girls there were no surprises, which was nice. For the married girls- did you actually track down confirmation numbers for all your guests? I might try to just gives dates booked, if I can get away with that.

                      For my 50% nonresponders... I spoke to a bunch of them (email/phone) to confirm their plans. Those who had verbally declined in the past I documented that officially in my spreadsheet (haha). There's still a few drifters out there as well as a few "MAYBE's"- those are the worst! Give me a YES or a NO already, you had enough time to get your business in order so make up your mind already!!! About 5 single girls are really holding up my numbers (i hope they come!). Until I have a firm head count I don't want to make welcome-bag purchases yet.

                      This weekend I want to put together a pre-travel brochure with info on RPRM, travel, Riviera Maya, etc. Anyone have a template they'd like to share? It sounds like a daunting task to start from scratch. So much more on my to-do list. Gah!

                      ShellK- YOU'RE UP, CHICA!!! Very excited for you!!
