    I am having a slightly different problem than some brides. I was originally hoping that we would have about 15 guests at our wedding. We are now up to 24 adults and 5 kids! I NEVER thought that this many people would be able to come to our wedding, but I guess the more the merrier!
    19 adults/3 children with flights booked! 10 rooms booked!

      I could be totally wrong, but I think Cinco de Mayo is more of a US holiday. I know Easter and Day of the Dead are really crazy in Mexico, but I'm not sure about Cinco de Mayo.

        Yeah cinco de Mayo is more of an americanized thing. If you are in Cancun though.. they may cater to that whole idea- kwim?

            So I've been trying to get my guest list and addresses together for STD's and now I'm thinking about not doing them because of the expense. Just curious how far out yall sent yours?

                I sent mine out a while ago - August I think. This is because my people are procrastinators though. I have had many RSVP's saying that they are coming and most have still not booked yet!

                  Hi,

                  Which resort are you getting married at? I am wondering how you were able to reserve your wedding date so far in advance. Every travel agent i talk to tells me that i can't reserve my date for at least another 3-6 months i need to reserve the date so that i can send guests a definte as to where the wedding is and when! how has this worked for everyone?

                  Thanks!
                  Emily

                    Cinco De Mayo is more of an American holiday. They might have some fun things going on at your resort but other than that you should have no problems

                      I did electronic STDs in December. I sent them through my travel agency website, and then sent another e-mail with the link to our website where all the information to prepare the trip are.

                      I will only send invites via regular mail. They are on their way I have tried to start gathering all the addresses when I sent the STDs, but mind you, people did not even answer to this (so RSVP forget about it). So I sent back emails two weeks ago and then reminders this week and then one last reminder yesterday and got all my addresses since this morning. FI has to do some trimming and perforating today - I left all the print-outs at home when i left this mroning.

                      A lot of sites propose electronic STD designs : Davids bridal, brides.com, the knot... Given that you are now so close to the date, I would either skip it and send the invites directly, or send an electronic one right away !
