It's so hard to communicate by email cuz she takes so long to respond and doesn't always answer questions fully, hence....more questions. I'm so glad I found this forum. It's great to be able to get answers within a day or 2 from others who are in the know. BTW, is anyone staying a second week somewhere else and if so, where and what made you decide on that resort? We are thinking about maybe an adults only for the second week for a little more romantic atmosphere and maybe just in case our friends want to stay on afterwards.

    Thx, Jen
    Hi Jen,

    I too am planning on holding my reception by the adults only pool...Jacy hasn't mentioned any additional costs, but she did say that she couldn't confirm that location until a month before. I should know for sure in a couple of weeks! As for a second week, we are moving to the Secrets Capri resort which is a bit north of DPA...it's an adults only area and it looks amazing!! Just an idea for you...I'll let you know about reception location.

      Thanks LP.

      I'll look into it. Is it costing you more to change resorts?

      Jacy told me the same thing about the availability of the pool area too. The only thing with there that I'm concerned about is if people not there for the wedding will still be milling around and if the setting will feel intimateor not.

        Jen,

        We've booked land only rates for both places and then booked our flights seperately through Continental. It worked out cheaper that way rather than doing an all inclusive airline & resort booking...hopefully that makes sence! We'll just have to pay for the transfers and they are only included with the full package deal. Continental has some great flight prices from Vancouver!

            Patsah...2 weeks left before your wedding!!!! Did you decide on Gazebo or Beach? Where are you having your reception? Are you still having trouble getting a hold of the planner?

              I haven't decided just yet, the planner sucks and doesn't answer all my questions so...I figure I'll just wait until I'm there to see what I like best and just try to wing it with everything else. I'm just happy that it will be all over with soon because I'm getting tired of my FI's family asking me dumb questions about travelling to Mexico! The lastest was an email this morning about no fly zones and cancelled flights...it's like, go on the web and do your research first before you worry about these stupid things!!!! ugh!!!

                Patsah...i know exactly what you mean! I have had a few cancellations already as a result of the so called unrest in Mexico. Is it me or do people not understand "Border Towns" My sister emailed me last night indicated my neice (flower girl) may not be going because of all the unrest in Mexico. AHHHH! She didn't even call me to let me know. She is also considering purchasing insurance for packages which tells me she is thinkn of not going. I was so upset last night...

                Anyway...there is nothing we can do but just remain patient and tell them to do their own research. No matter who attends...just remember you're doing this for yourselves and not for others. Don't get me wrong...we want family there but if they can't make it...you're still getting married to the love of your life!!!

                    I understand you are stressed...I am getting a little anxious too, even tho my wedding is just under 4 months away. Bianca, it seems like you have so much taken care of though...way more organized than I am! What do you think you don't have covered / should be doing??

                      I can TOTALLY relate. I feel like I waited till the last minute on everything. I am still buying decorations, still looking for hair inspiration, still need alterations, blah blah blah. I am so stressing over it and feel like I am doing it all myself since FI isn't really into the planning and I have no bridal party. The bridal nightmares have begun, the most recent, I am standing in the airport in my dress that is falling off and I have no luggage, no decorations to take, nothing. It put me into panic mode. I leave exactly 7 weeks from today, the crunch is on!
