Thanks for the breakdown, helps put everything into perspective.
Clinicalgal, thanks for the detailed review. How horrible about the fall! You looked beautiful on your day!!
So i'm a little bummed. Our early booking bonus deadline was this Saturday and we didn't get the 10 ppl booked. Two of my guests are flying out of a different city and don't count. My bad, i didn't research enough before i went ahead and signed up with our TA. We got engaged on June 14, and the deadline was August 28. That seems so little of time to have 10 ppl pay in full, and of course that's what all my invitees think.
FI's dad isnt' coming to the wedding. He just won't come. His mom and sis are going to rent a condo in Tulum as they think Dreams is too expensive. Another Aunty of mine is staying in Playa as they can get a cheaper hotel. I knew this would happen, but what a PITA. A few of our friends that were the most excited and we thought would FORSURE be there, haven't booked and arent' talking about it! But, we are still happy with everything and can't wait till Februrary.
Looks like we'll have a cheaper wedding than i thought!!! And spend some of the money that we thought we'd have to on the guests that will be there. (Fishing trip/catamaran)
