    Ummmm.....I'm getting a little nervous!!! I don't like the fact they are pushing back the date, but I'm sure it will be fine.

    We still haven't heard anything from the Wedding Coordinators, but at least we now how a set date of FEB.04/09 YEAH!!!! Our travel agent said that they still don't have any wedding coordinators, but hopefully soon...I want to get the ball moving!!!

      I'll let you all know if I hear anything before you!
      I'm hoping to go down in December just to check things out and make some final arrangements, etc. So, if that all works out for me, I will take lots of pics for you!!!
      Hi jenluvsmike!!!
      Who did you hear all of this from?? Is it posted on the website?? Would you be able to send me a copy of the questions you received?? I would love to see the questions...and see if I can answer any either.....When are you going for a site visit?? I wish I had the funds, I think that would be a great help....I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that everything runs smoothly!! How are the plans coming otherwise?? Do you have quite a few people coming??

          Not a thing...I heard by the beginning of October. Well, that is what my travel agent said. The only thing I got confirmed was my date......

            Hi Andie! Sorry for the delayed response...things have been super busy around here lately!!!
            They have posted on their website that it is opening the beginning of December 2008 - no specific date yet. We are hoping and trying to get down for that first week (I think the departure date is Friday, December 5th) to have a look at everything and get some things done ahead of time. Still haven't booked that yet, but just about ready! I also found alot of information regarding the date to reopen on the Trip Advisor site, under the Huatulco forum.

            I'm actually surprised at how relaxed I am with everything! I'm not stressed at all and I'm nearly 3 months away now! (But ask me again at the beginning of January!!) The only time I got really stressed was when my TA called me to tell me the space on out flight was getting booked up really fast and that the flight leaving Calgary (I have alot of friends and fam coming from the west) was full and my best friend didn't get on it!!!! Anyway, she worked everything out for me, and I'm fine now! Our week is nearly at capacity!!! I think there are another couple groups going for our week as well, which should be fun! We have 35 people total (not too big not too small) - we are really happy about that! My first fitting is in October - and I'm soooooooooo excited about that! I was really overweight when I first found it. Since the beginning of summer, I've lost 22 lbs, so I really can't wait to try that dress on again and put her to work with alterations!!!
            The bridesmaids are done - cute flowy summer dresses from BCBG (they were all on sale after the summer), and the boys are all done too - nice short-sleeved shirts from Tommy Bahama and khaki slacks from Banana Republic - all on sale from the summer too!!!

            I don't remember where I put those questions...if you want, send me your email, and when I find them, I'll send them to you!
            Sorry this turned into a super post!!! whoops!
            Jen

              At first I was set on Puerto Vallarta, but the water is so much prettier in Huatulco. I am now working with my travel agent to lock in a date for November 2009 at Dreams. I'm looking at November 14 and I can't wait to hear back from the wedding coordinator.

                    Thanks for that update Andie...I was starting to get a little worried about that! My travel agent called on Tuesday and that was one of the questions I asked her - she was going to check into that for me!

                    I have a bit of news too - My TA also told me that originally the resort was set to open up in November - we all know they pushed that back to the beginning of December. We were going to go down before the wedding - we were hoping to go December 5th. But, now my TA tells me that signature is not flying out until December 19th!!!! I guess the hotel has pushed things back! So, we made the decision yesterday that we won't be going down ahead of time - it's just too hard! She also said that her rep at Signature is very confident that the resort will be up and running for December - they don't want to miss out on the busy holiday season!

                    She was also looking into finding out if the actual hotel might be open in early December - maybe Signature is just not flying out as early... One lady at Signature just got back from holidays there - she stayed at the Barcelo, which is right next door. She said they are doing alot of work on the site and it looks good! So, this is a good thing!!!!

                    So, things are really underway for us now...it is exactly 3 months today until we leave!!!! Our TA said over the next couple weeks, she will need us to answer a bunch of questions in regards to the wedding...I guess it's all the nitty gritty things that have to get done! I'm actually really looking forward to it!

                    My FH just had his big stag a couple weekends ago - 250 people showed up and he had a blast!!! That same weekend, his mom threw a shower for me, where about 50 people showed up - it was just beautiful! One more shower coming up in November, and then it's December - once we get through Christmas, that's it!!! We're boarding a plane and having the time of our lives!!!!

                    I'll keep you all posted on what happens next in terms of the wedding planning...I'm sure I'll have more info before the week is through!

                      Well at least you are getting more information Jen, and same with you Andie-regarding the wedding coordinator. I was talking with a girl on tripadvisor too who leaves on dec 26th for her wedding and she has all the info and said she would forward it to me once she had it all filled out? I have a feeling you guys will get yours sooner though.
                      AS soon as anyone gets ANYTHING, lets promise to forward it to each other :)

                      I really hope there is somewhere to have a reception other than on the beach??

                      Jen- my sister is actually going to be in Huatulco the same week as you for a wedding at a villa. I am sending her over to the dreams resort to scope out the area for me with her camera (her MOH duties! ha), and I told her you were there getting married that week.

                      I cannot wait to see pics of the actual resort all reno'd. 7 pools?! holy man. im so excited, why do i have to wait over a year? You girls are so lucky!!
