    We started with our STD in February and still only have 27. so don't be so discouraged. And to get the held rate people had to book by may 1 which is why we have 27. We still have people who have rsvp'd and not booked and have people who have not rsvp'd despite the May 15 return by date. And we invited almost 160 too. keep your chin up. :)

      I have completed the following:

      2) sent out save the dates
      3) bought dress
      4) finished wedding website
      5) started collecting things for OOT
      6) decided on color pallete

      But I am concerned that I see tons of brides who have 25 ppl booked or more by now, and I only have about 6-8 ppl booked. I sent out STD to about 160 ppl.
      I'm a little worried, but is there anything I can really do? I can't make people pay their deposits.
      Any recommendations Dec Brides!?
      I only have a handful booked at this point too. I am not going to be concerned until 2 months out....

        Jillian- We have the same wedding date!! It's actually also my FI's parents wedding anniversary and they have been together for 27 years so I guess it's good luck!

        As for people booking, I only have about 10 out of 63 people booked. We put down $50 deposits for all 63 people and as long as they pay the balance by August 4th they can book with our low rate. I am not worried because our TA will be sending out an email this week letting them all know that if their hotel rooms are not booked by Aug 4th then they will not get the discounted rate. If you don't have a TA, you could just send out a mass email giving everyone a deadline for your rate. Since we booked through Apple Vacations, if people do not book, their $50 deposit is not lost, it is just rolled into my FI and I's room cost so we don't lose anything!
        WE WERE SO BLESSED TO HAVE A PERFECT WEDDING WEEKEND FROM START TO FINISH!

          Where are you girls all going for your honeymoon? Are you staying at the same resort for two weeks or switching it up?
          Right now we are booked to stay two weeks at the same resort b/c most of our guests come fri-fri (including us) but some will be there until sunday so we want to stay there with them. Then another part of us wants to go somewhere else but it adds on another$2000 or so to do that cause the second week when staying at the same resort is always cheaper.

            My FI and I are staying at the same resort---there are great friends that I really want to spend time with and we want to take a seperate Honeymoon sometime later, probably March 2010 to somewhere else like Paris.

                I have always wanted to go to Pars (only been to other parts of Europe) and I am not counting the stay in Mexico as the Honeymoon :) I wouldn't mind Turkey but my FI doesn't really love that idea. Still up in the air. You are so lucky you have all the destination weddings for you and your friend!
