Hello everyone! Congratulations to you all! I am having a lot of the same issues...I think I have a few resorts narrowed down, but I am waiting on the TA to get back to me with pricing for us and our guests. I am looking at a wedding date in February 2010 in Punta Cana or Cabo San Lucas. Just waiting from the TA to see what our best options will be! I hate this waiting period, I just want to book the date and resort!!

 

Any other Punta Cana brides out there for February 2010?

I don't have a date officially set, but I am hoping for Saturday the 6th or Friday the 5th. I put in my request to our new TA on Monday but haven't heard anything yet. I haven't heard of many March 2010 brides at all, so it's exciting to find someone whose at the same resort.

smile03.gif 11 months and 3 days for us!.. Its so exciting, my friends and family are already waaaay bored of my wedding nonsense.... We'll have to rely on chatting to each other before we drive everyone else away! LOL

Out of curiosity do you all have your dresses sorted I've fallen into the "just need to lose those last few pounds" mode but now the clocks a ticking, im comfort eating like a woman possessed and I've not even tried on any dresses!!eek.gif

Can someone clarify something for me? Some resorts say you need to be in Mexico FOUR business days before getting married and some say THREE. Why? I am avoiding all the resorts that say four, because that basically means we have to get married on the Friday and everyone leaves the next day. How anti-climatic?

Does anyone know why some resorts allow three and others four?

OMG, everyone is definitely already sick of all my wedding talk, lol! I'm actually going dress shopping tomorrow! I'm brining my MOH with me too, so hopefully I can find bridal party dresses too! I keep thinking that I have all of this time to get things done, but I know the time will fly by...it's already LESS THAN YEAR AWAY!!!

I have definitely seen this vary from resort to resort. At first I thought it was based on the area in Mexico you're in...but it actually looks like the resort can set their own "number of days" rule. I think the resort I'm getting married at is three days. We're planning to get married on a Friday and are hoping everyone stays until Sunday, so that they don't have to leave right away after the wedding.

We chose a Friday wedding. We are arriving at the Resort on Tuesday because the WC said we needed to be there by 11 am on Wednesday to have it count as 3 days prior. Flying from Chicago in January, you do not risk delays so we thought oh well we have to extend our trip 1 more day no biggie :). Our guests are arriving on Wednesday and they're going to stay until either Saturday or Sunday, budget permitting. I think this will work out great. We're not too concerned about the immediate alone time. The FI and I already live together, so it's not like we're insisting on immediate alone time. wink.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
