    ah I heard that too about the second outbreak of swine flu in decemeber and it being worse than this other one. We arent preparing a back up and we will go rain or swine (unless they cancel flights on us, then we are hooped). hopefully by december it would all be cleared up again though!!

      So!!!! excited! just ordered my guestbook from Blurb!
      Hope it turns out good!
      instead of photos from us, I purchased a few photos from the internet of puerto vallarta, and put those photos on the right hand side (I wanted to create more of a coffee table book so we can keep it out all the time). on the left hand side, there will be lines for guests to write notes to us. and at the header of each page is a quote - a quote about marriage, some funny, some sweet. I love it!
      I had some really funny quotes
      and on the inside flap, I wrote a little dedication to my FI

        That sounds so cute! We're doing a coffee table guest book too, but it definitely doesn't sound as fun or personal as yours! Yea for checking stuff off the list :)

          Happy Monday girls! We finished our registry this weekend! Yea for getting that nonsense done (I didn't want to register but my mom insisted so I had been totally procrastinating). Note to self... never give Brett the scanner again - he honestly tried to put Mountain Dew on the list! Also finished the invites and just need to mail them.

          As a side note I asked my resort about what kind of Christmas decorations they usually have up in December. They don't do a lot except for a small tree and some stuff in the lobby.

            Autumn, thats funny! we just finished registering too!
            Well, I registered a long time ago at Kohl's and Traveler's Joy honeymoon website.
            We really don't want people spending money on presents, but I realized for the bridal shower etc I'm going to need to register for things.
            I want to cancel my Kohl's account though! does anyone know if I just call them to cancel?!
            I changed our registry for Crate & Barrel, Target, and Macy's (macy's only for china) and still Traveler's Joy. I really hope our parents get in on the china together.... :)
            It's fun!
            Oh, and I was in thousand oaks area this past weekend, and I picked up my earrings and fake hair piece for the wedding! (hahaha!) I put the hair in and then went up to my aunt to show her and she didn't even realize I had a piece in - she thought it was my real hair! I'll post pics later!

              We aren't registering but our parents keeping nagging us to do so too.. oh well. They can figure it out.
              I got our travel mugs delivered on friday and i was *slightly* disappointed. The logo is just smaller than I want it to be.. FI likes them and says its good cause we didnt want something big anyways. Whatever, I guess the purpose of them is to keep the drinks cold/frozen and that will still happen.
              Im at a standstill otherwise i think!

                  We're getting married in Cozumel on Dec 10th... we just got engaged and started planning a month ago, so I feel like I'm behind, but the plans are moving ahead fast. The wedding coordinator at the resort has been fantastic and she's handling most of the arrangements with an email to me here and there about needing a decision on something. So far we've got:

                  -our travel booked
                  -wedding day itinerary set
                  -bridesmaids/groomsmen set
                  -reception sunset cruise booked
                  -STDs went out 3 weeks ago
                  -starting my formal invites now
                  -purchased about 1/2 of the items for OOT bags (there are shopping bags all over our guest room... no time to put the OOT bags together yet!)
                  -colors picked
                  -logo done.... but now thinking about changing it
                  -meeting with site & caterers this week to make a decision on AHR reception

                  Whew... I feel like I have a ton left to do and just 4 months to do it!!

                  22 booked... we're ready to go!!!

                    Finally got our first RSVP "Yes" online Thursday!!!

                    Several RSVP "No" came in July and hopefully we will hear back from more guests. We have been planning for 30 friends and family attending the wedding.

                      I just have so many people telling me they are coming - probably at least 20 more guests, and they still haven't booked. I'm like, "what are you waiting for?! I don't think rates are going to get any cheaper!"
                      I have learned that when I just stop worrying, that is when guests book.

                      We sent out about 180 invites, with 19 "No"s and "22" booked
