      UGH I am so frustrated - we are travelling through Signature vacations and they are just trying to get all of their flights organized for their summer brochure, but they keep telling me it'll be out "next month", "next month". So they told me before Christmas they'd have it in January, so I just got my travel agent to check with them on the flight schedule and they said, "next month possibly"..... really!?!?! Our guests are waiting to find out when they should book their time off from work. They know we'll be going sometime within the week of May 14th, most likely Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday, but we're not sure yet. So they keep asking us when we're leaving. And our invitations are waiting on the flight schedule so we can put that info in there, and our photographer is asking if we can do our TTD session on the 16th instead of the day after our wedding the 15th, which I can't answer because I don't know what day we will be flying home.... I just needed to vent because it feels like I can't move forward until I get this information!

        Cara, that's rough. Hopefully your TA will get back to you. I am wondering though, why is it dependent on their schedule...can't you fly at your own will? What if someone wanted to go Thursday to Sunday?

          Hi Everyone!

          My wedding is May 29, 2010! It will be here before you know it. I am actually going to Cabo next Thursday for a site walk-through and to get some details all figured out.

          We picked our location. Cabo del Sol. We just need to do menu, cake, flowers, details etc.

          So much to do!

            Chrissy- Good luck dress shopping! How come you say "ugh?"

            Cara- Vent away! I thought that the flights out of Calgary ran Sat-Sat? Same with Transat?

            Finleys- Our packages from Canada are flight included, and the charters generally run the same days. Not as many options to fly mid-week unless you have a million stop overs through the US

            Erica- Welcome May bride! Let us know how your site visit goes. Pretty cool that you are able to do that!

              Cara - I'm going the same week as you and we're booked through Air Canada Vacations. Our flights were confirmed MONTHS ago...like back in September! But I guess that's the bonus of booking through an actual airline. We fly from Calgary Sunday to Sunday. Hopefully you get yours confirmed soon! I can't imagine how frustrating that would be!

                I have a question for those getting married in Riviera Maya, Mexico. What time are you having your ceremony at? I think I read that the sun sets at 7:15.

                Also, does anyone know if the sand is too hot in May to walk down barefoot? We are thinking of having our ceremony on the sand and I don't want to deal with what kind of shoes to wear. I am hoping to go barefoot for the ceremony and then buy shoes for the reception. Anyone else doing this?

                  Hey SD,
                  My wedding is in Riviera Maya at Excellence, I'm getting married at 5pm to hopefully catch some great sunset photos... this time was suggested by the resort coordinator for the pix...I'm doing the gazebo though cant help w the sand.

                    That's so weird because my wedding coordinator at Dreams Riviera Cancun told me to schedule it for 6pm. I had originally thought 5:30 but figured the coordinator should know. I wonder why there is such a discrepancy in their opinions. I was originally a little worried about that time, but someone posted information from a photographer and it says to allow 55 - 65 mins prior to sunset. I don't know what to do! My photographer thinks 5:30, but she is from the states so I would rather go with what the locals think.

                      ChristinaP I was just hoping to lose a little more before the dress shopping. Although I did find a nice dress this weekend, flattered my figure really well, so I got it! Now my goal is to see how much they need to take it in, ha! It also has a corsett back (not what I wanted but looks great) so it will help if I lose more weight.
