    We have a King bed - we go to sleep next to each other and when we wake up sometimes it's like we are 2 miles away from each other!

    as for RSVPs - I haven't gotten one in over a week - I sent out 29 and got back 4!!!! But, the good news is that my TA is going to contact all of my guests to see if they are coming and to see if she can get them to book on the phone with her!
    YAY!!!!!

          YAY!!!!!
          i think we need a king bed too.. except our whole room would probably be bed then! i don't know what those movies are doing showing couples falling asleep all cuddled up together... unless i'm passed out drunk i don't want anyone touching me when i'm trying to fall asleep!

          michele, that is AWESOME about your TA!! that way she will get a response from each person too.. that should definitely help give you a better idea of who's coming! yayyy for progress!

            Michele..sound like you got a good TA..willing to help take some of that load off...and she will make the resort sound so wonderful which I am sure will get folks thinking and booking!!!

            Erin..I am serious..u know they say when snakes roll around in a ball their mating..in our case we are just fighting for space in the bed..lmao!!!

            It's all Suzy's fault because she got us started on the bed issue but that is one of the reasons I want to spend the night apart..

                LOL! My FI is the same way! It's totally about the money to him. Oh man, if only he knew the things I was doing :) BUT (and that's a big but!) I do have some leeway with him because I've made a point of telling him about the good deals I've gotten so far, and how much we saved by me making the invites etc. so when he knows I've been out shopping he doesn't get as nervous as some other guys might. When we get to mexico, he's going to wonder where the heck all our decorations came from!!!

I really don't want him to see me in my dress or anything until I get down the aisle, though! He hasn't seen my dress, either, not even a pic so it'll be a nice surprise.
                I have to agree with you that for the most part FI and I don't sleep that well if the other isn't there. Now this is going to sound a little weird, but I think it'll be a little easier for us to be in different rooms for the night because we're probably just going to do a trade with another couple who are part of our wedding party. It makes me giggle because the guys will get to share a king size bed for the night, but for me it should be enough just having another body in the bed, even if it is my girlfriend and not FI! HAHA! Our wedding is at 3pm so I won't have to wait until later in the evening at least, but I'm going to need to keep myself busy so that I don't go crazy!!

                Hahaha, FI is definitely the same way! We have constant struggles over the blankets which he rolls himself up into. Usually he gets 2/3 of the bed and I have to share the other 1/3 with our dog and/or cat all night! I sleep pretty well still - like I could make the bed at night and it would look almost the same in the morning except for hte exact spot I was still in :)

                Don't worry Suzy, I put Jan.31 2010 for our final RSVP date. I had hoped it would be into the new year enough for everyone to know their vacation schedules well enough but also give me time to finish up any ordering that I need to do. I think you'll be okay having two months before your wedding, but maybe just make sure to send out reminders in early January to give people a few weeks reminder before the real deadline.

                I think it's a really good idea to have your wedding coordinator contact your guests and try to get them to commit one way or another, even if they don't end up booking right away. It takes some of the stress off you and then your guests won't feel like it's you that is pressuring them either!
                We honestly haven't gotten any more RSVP's since we first booked and had some of our close friends jump on board. AND we even got a wedding invite for New Years that we have to RSVP for by Nov.1 and those friends haven't RSVP'd for us yet! Too much overlap right now I guess?!?!

                  We got the heaviest comforter ever because I have a habit of curling up in a blanket - when we were staying at my place in the queen bed he would wake up with nothing and I'd be in a coccoon! this thing is so heavy it's impossible! We're going to stay together the night before because we just can't imagine being apart for a night - the ceremony isn't till 4, so we'll have plenty of time to separate (meaning he can leave) and get ready.

                  My RSVP date isn't until 12/31 but my TA is actually surprised that nobody has called her. i have 10 rooms held and no idea if that's enough or too much or what - I hate being in limbo!

                  And can I just say I love you guys - having other April brides has just made me feel so much better about things - knowing that other girls getting married at the same time are having the same issues....
                  It helps a lot!

                    Def helps!!
                    This is one main reason I didn't go with a TA because I knew people wouldn't know in time, or didn't have that kind of money laying around the house. so i just put up a website, pretty much I'm the TA lol but I have no spaces booked for anymore. I'm assuming tho, it shouldn't be a problem with ppl booking last min.
                    Did you have to put the deposit down to put aside 10 seats?

                      I love having other April brides too! It's nice to talk to all brides, but you guys are kind of going through the same stuff at the same time and it's nice sometimes to know it's not just me! It's great hearing about your plans, too, because you're at the same stage in planning (more or less) than I am and it's easy to relate to.
                      Loving married life!
