    That's so amazing that you're getting married so soon! Congrats!!!! 9 days, you must be so excited!

      Thanks for the reassurances everyone, I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't being unreasonable! So no news from my TA yet, I'm going to call her tomorrow to see what she's heard from the resort so I'll keep you posted. FH keeps reminding me that we're going to get married and that's all that matters, but I'm still annoyed!

        I got the confirmation for my wedding date (yay) but it's at 3pm (booooo). I e-mailed my travel agent back to let her know I was NOT happy because we had agreed on 4pm at the earliest. I am going to DIE of heat at 3pm. I've only been asking since August 2008 about my wedding date and time.

          So we finally booked our wedding date and time today!

          It's not ideal Wednesday at 1pm, and we're getting to the resort more in advance than we wanted to (Saturday) but after weighing everything out it's the best we can do. We could have left the Monday and potentially gotten married the Thursday at 3pm, but Monday is a really hard day to leave for a lot of our guests and we want our most important guests flying down with us.

          At first I was pretty bummed (it's still annoying!) but after talking to FH he reassured me that I will not turn into Shamu in four days (I may have to just work out a lot since I'm sure I'll be following a primarily liquid diet, lol), that we can figure out a way to keep our guests cool during the ceremony (I'm thinking maybe parasols and fans) and that we can plan a cocktail party or something in between the wedding and the reception. What's most important is that FH and I are getting married!

          I still think that it's crazy that there is only one judge in Punta Cana though!

          Thanks for all of your thoughts and advice!!!
