    Woo hoo! Congrats! You will love him, he's a super nice and super talented guy!

    You MUST post your pics when he gets them to you, I would love to see them! :)

      For those whose weddings are near, you gals are so upbeat!! I'm cracking up listening to your responses! I say we set a day and specific time and all do a large shot of Don Julio in honor of the wonderful swine flu media frenzy!! Just this weekend while we were up "getting" my dress, my future FIL was calling for a hurricane while we were down there too!! Too funny how all our minds are on the same track here! Gals, our days will be what we make of them and it sounds like they're all going to be fabulously fun and rememberable!!!

      So, my "getting" my dress this weekend wasn't so fun ... actually, a little Bridezilla came out this weekend! I got a call from the bridal store Saturday evening at 4:30 ... half hour before they closed, to confimr my appt to try on my dress Sunday at 12. The gal said, well, it looks like your dress ahsn't arrived yet, so you can try on the sample again! The fumes started flying! They gauranteed me that it would arrive on Friday and I could come in Sat or Sunday to pick it up! Being 5 hours away, my FI and I decided to make a weekend out of it to visit our in-laws, who live an hour away from the store. My mom even took off work to come with us! Needless to say, there have been many phone calls and one face to face visit with the store! As of now, they're talking with a bridal store 15 minutes from our house to arrange for it to be shipped here and the alterations taken care of. The salon will be taking care of every additional expense for this dress. So, unfortunately, I have no pics to share with you ... Hopefully in the next few weeks I should though!

      I'm about to do our final 4 pages of wedding details! Have some decisions to make! Thanks for all the help to make this process so much easier! If I have any questions ... they'll be coming shortly!

      DEEKAN!!!! So glad to see you on here! Hey ... we'd love to have you and Colin join us if you two need a vaca!!! Then you can party with us and get some up front info!! Plus, prices are dropping like mad!!! Murph and Jess got an awesome price, and ours keeps dropping because of getting the insurance for guaranteed lowest price! Awesome to see you leaning towards the Iberostar ... you said yourself they were beautiful!!!

        Hi girls,

        I am finally over the Swine Flu! Nothing like the media blowing it out of proportion! I still feel for those of you that are getting married in May. I am not until the end of June and although things seem to be slowing down I still have a few guest that can't help but email me to tell me how stressed they are about this so I am sure May brides are really feeling it!!! We still have six weeks so it should be more than fine.

        Quick question...I am renting out the Tropical Restaurant for our reception. Does anyone know how many people each table fits? I am going to work on the seating chart and I don't know if I should do tables of six, eight or ten.

        Thanks!

          Hi Jennifer,

          I think tables of 6 people would be the most comfortable. I think if your limited though then you can probably get 8 pp to a table. Do you have the pic of the Tropical with the tables all set-up? The pic is showing 7 chairs around the table and they look just about right. You probably don't want your guests too crowded.
          If Gabriela or Reyna never sent you the pic, PM me your e-mail addrees and I'll send you the PDF image.

          Gen

            HI! I am pretty new here and I'm finally finding all the Iberostar posts! My first choice is the Iberostar Maya- i have to fax them my information to confirm the date. I'm looking into July, 2010! I can't wait to hear how your wedding goes. I'm a little confused still about all the planning, the etiquette with DW invitations, etc.....
            This site seems to have a wealth of info!

                  FYI

                  "IBEROSTAR HOTELS & RESORTS TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE SOME OF ITS RIVIERA MAYA HOTELS

                  Due to decreased travel to Mexico as a result of the H1N1 Virus, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts has voluntarily chosen to temporarily close some of its hotels in Mexico beginning May 8, 2009. This measure is being to taken in order to continue maintaining the high level of service that Iberostar is known for and provide guests with a memorable vacation experience. Guests who have booked upcoming stays or are currently staying at the hotels that will be closed are being informed and upgraded to other nearby Iberostar properties.

                  The properties slated to close include:
                  - Iberostar Paraiso del Mar—Guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Lindo/Maya
                  - Iberostar Paraiso Beach—Guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Lindo/Maya
                  - Iberostar Quetzal — Guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Lindo/Maya
                  - Iberostar Tucan — Guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Lindo/Maya
                  - Iberostar Cozumel — Guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Lindo/Maya

                  Reopening dates will depend on increased travel to Mexico. The following Iberostar properties will remain open, fully operational, welcoming travelers:
                  - Iberostar Paraiso Lindo
                  - Iberostar Paraiso Maya
                  - Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso "

                    Thanks for sharing! I sent this to my TA and asked if we could be upgraded to the Maya or Grand. We are already upgraded to the Grand on our HM, but all of our guests are at the Lindo. It just sucks we have to pay full price. I am anticipating my TA saying tough Sh*t! haha Such as life. :) I am just happy we get to go since I know so many have had to suffer!

                    I am happy for all you girls that get the upgrade...that is great! How do you girls feel about this? Happy, pissed? I wonder how it will work for the weddings. Especially since some of you wanted to rent out the Tropical.

                      Wow! I'm totally jealous! I would have loved an upgrade! I've heard that the beds on the Maya/Lindo side are far more comfortable than the Beach/Del Mar side beds (not that it would take much, it's like sleeping on a boulder haha). So does that mean any May brides who wanted to use the garden gazebo as their ceremony site can no longer do so? That's kind of a bummer!!
