    LOL! My FI was shocked when I said he should sneak out of his work meetings, I told him this was more important than the meetings :)

        Ahhh, so happy for you Tracey and just a bit jealous, but in a good way. I only wish I could go to the states we are only 2 hours from the border but I don't have a citizenship and getting a US visa is not easy :(

I'll be doing another cross border shopping trip before the end of August though, it's definitely worth it.

            I am from Central Asia. I have a passport, but I need a US visa, I looked at booking an appointment at embassy but the earliest is December. I don't think I can wait on my OOTs that long :).

                I had the same problem in the begining, no one could get get ahold of our TA. In fact 20 of our guests went through a different travel agent because they were fed up. It makes it very difficult to organize the guest list with the wedding coordinator at the resort, when everyone is listed under different groups!

Our TA has been away since we booked our trip... ahem not impressed... so no one has been able to book their trips.  My FMIL called FI yesterday saying we need to figure this out.  She is back now but needless to say FI is not impressed at all!!! Oh well, there has to be some drama right?! We have until end of august to get deposits down... I just hope people start booking soon!!!!

                  It is so so frustrating! I feel like we made the wrong decision.  She really pushed Air Canada Vacations on us and so we booked with them.  All our guests will be connecting through TO and then we will on be on the same flight to the DR.  It sounded great to me and in theory works well BUT now that people are booking they aren't loving the idea... I am tempted to have her get direct flights for people with a different tour operator... so confusing, she is supposed to make my life easier yet she didn't bring up the downsides to this way of travel... oh well... live and learn!

                    Oh Tori, sorry to hear that you are having so many troubles with your TA, that's just unacceptable. I am sure at the end it'll all workout and your guests will absolutely love their week in paradise with you. Hang in there!
