    thanx bridal buddies...i am supa excited.....it looks like we may have 3 more guests join us, i hope so !!!!

    @tiffandmarv-i am not sure if she does, but i will inquire and let u know

    @geralyn- yes, i think it is a great number....i figure no more than 50 ppl is a great partyyyyy...yea mon!!!!!!

    @karen m- lolol......no need to fret, i ovastand your pain....we sent our invites out on Sept. 14 with a deposit due by Oct. 31, we thought giving our guests over a month 2 make a deposit was a great amount of time......boy were we wrong,by Oct 29. no one, and i mean no one had made a deposit but us and our photographer, not even our families, everyone waited until the last minute....all of our deposits were made on saturday Oct 31, and since we had such a lrg. number of deposits by the deadline, they extended it until Nov. 14th........so dont worry, it will all turn out great :) for some reason ppl like to wait till the deadline date when it comes to money...lol.....

    *SCREAMING* don't they know this is my wedding

      hahaha! Oh good, I was beginning to think I was one of the few with an entire group of procrastinators! :) You're totally right! People don't want to part w/ their $$ 'til they absolutely have to! I love that everyone put their deposits down on the day they were due! That's totally gonna be my group too, or even after they're due (1/5). I feel a bunch of nagging calls to book coming on in early January.

        I feel the EXACT same way! We sent our Save the Dates out over a month ago and we have NO ONE booked yet (except ourselves of course). This is so frustrating! I don't want to nag folx, but some of these same people were the main ones begging to be invited! I don't know if it's the cost, if people are waiting until after the holidays, until they receive their tax returns....OR WHAT??

        *screaming* I NEED THOSE 10 ROOMS BOOKED!!!

          yall i ovastand....i was going crazy, we had booked 25 rooms and they needed to be filled ASAP........

          @karen & latoya- just prepare yourself for your family and friends to call u in a rush about who/where/when to put their deposits down (although i am pretty sure they already have that info) and expect you to be in a rush also, when they have had ample enuff time....word to the wise is to be patient, direct all money and travel inquires to the travel agent, and last but not least try 2 do it with a smile, after its over you will be happy that your gusets are coming and that u didnt give anyone a BEATDOWN, and have to apologize later for "just bein' a bride".....but trust it will be ok

          ps.....after a while I couldn't talk to anyone who hadn't made a deposit and were a loved one that I wanted/needed there, therefore I sent emails (lots, i was probably overbearing) and communicated like that.......

              LOL!!! You must know me! LOL! I've been thinking "humph, they're all going to wait until the last minute and worry me to DEATH about their travel arrangements and at THAT time I'll give them a piece of my mind!!" LOL!!! But you're right, I need to be prepared for the inevitable aggravating questions and just answer them with a smile. LOL!
