Hey Girls,

 

Just checking in with you all to see how your planning is going. I'm so happy I worked with a travel agent and did not just book thru an online travel company. My TA was able to get us the lower rate, saved us over 2 grand. At this point the major change is that my FI grandparents(who have been his parents) backed out on the trip. They're using the Swine Flu and aging as their reason but whatever. I was disappointed for him, most of his family are staying off site and are only coming for the wedding. But he seems ok with everything, he just wants to get married. Its unfortunate they won't be there but the show must go on. We are getting married in NJ before we get to Mexico, so we'll probably have them come to that. Only problem with that is his Grandmother cant hold water, she's such a blabber mouth. But either way were still getting married so im brushing it off regardless.

So I am wondering if our lovely hotel is doing any extra incentives for may/june brides. A lot of other hotels are waiving charges for the resort fee and I'm like I need some of that too!

I got the extra, discounted rate as well, it was a great help. We have to make our final payment this Wednesday and we can pay it in Cash. Thats one less burden off our shoulders. The name of the game for my wedding is don't use credit cards so the extra discount went a long way.

Hey Ladies, Regarding menu options did anyone get information on a buffet? My friends went to a wedding at EPM a year ago and said the buffett was awesome and had the best lobsters they ever tasted.

Also did you all do Save the Dates and then invitations? Or just invites?

Hi Traci,

 

We originally used a travel agent and we purchased insurance. We used our insurance to cancel the trip. We are still waiting on our refund but we re-booked through Orbitz and the trip was $2000 less for the roof top excellence club room! I was so happy to be saving money. We are also paying everything in cash so the swine flu turned out to be a good thing afterall! Travel prices to Mexico decreased rapidly but I think they are going back up now. The CDC has removed their reccomendation to not travel to Mexico.

 

 

I'm not sure about a buffet option but I'm sure if you just ask they will let you know. I did my save the dates electronically and purchased awesome invitations from Jessica with the Stylish Scribe. She did an awesome job and is a past bride and vendor on the forum. My colors are black and white with hot pink so we did a pink passport invite with black writing and the envelopes were lined in a black velvet. They are gorgeous! I will post pics later.
