Ugh that sux. I would be careful though because they may only go up! It's that cat and mouse game where who knows what will happen. Will your TA guarantee you the lower price within six months?

I feel your pain. I just checked today, and it's still up around $2100...and our newest TA has just quoted us over $2100....I'm willing to hold out for another month or so before I start to panic. Just remember the pricing has just come out for 2011! where in Canada are you??

Michelle,

Maybe just wait a bit to see if the price comes down, dunno about in UK, but in Canada, the package deals usually come down when it is 3-5 months away, that is when the wholesalers really want to sell. Given the crude oil is around the same price as last year, but GBP/MXN exchange rate is -18%, so it is very possible that the price will look like 20% more than last year for UK brides. Not to mention, Mexico got the flu thingy last year, so all the resorts went on super SALE mode. I spent around $1100 USD for a 14 days package last September.

I am and then I'm not, haha. I want it to hurry and get here because I know it's going to be one of the best weeks of my life, partying with friends and family in Mexico for a week and ending it with my dream wedding. Not to mention that by the time I'm there, I'll have FINISHED grad school, and more importantly, my thesis! But then I realize how much I still have left to do (both for the wedding and the thesis haha) and then I start wishing for more time. If only there were 36 hours in a day:)

But I do have lots to look forward to in the next year, despite all of the stress that it'll be bring. One week from tomorrow, May 28th (yes, the one year pre-anniversary to our wedding), I leave for Malawi! I'll be spending 10 weeks there for a summer internship with WFP. I know that's going to be the experience of a lifetime :) Then, in the fall, we're going to do a long weekend trip to Mexico for a site visit. Not sure yet if it'll be me and the fiance going or me and my mom. Then, in January, my fiance moves to Hawaiisad.gif But I get to spend spring break there in March! Then comes thesis defense, graduation, FINALLY the wedding, then a trip to Napa, and a move to Hawaii for me!

I get exhausted just thinking about what the next year holds. But in a good waypinkie.gif

I'm in Ottawa, I almost choked when the flights came to $1200 just for PV, and a bit more for Los Cabos...that's a *wee* bit high, but ya, I'll wait 1 month too before I lose my sh&%!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
