There is definitely nothing wrong with it, it's just pureed food. So if eating banana baby food is easier for you than eating a banana (which for some it is because produce goes bad so quickly, they don't want to buy it and have it go to waste!), then by all means, do it.

I feed baby food sweet potatoes to my dog, it's his favorite treat:)

Does anyone have their flight/hotel rates yet? My TA said she's still waiting on the rates from the vacation companies, but I heard somewhere that you can get rates as long as you're less than 330 days out?

 

I'm getting so impatient! I hate that I booked the resort but have no idea what my guests are going to pay!!

I was able to get my hotel rates (although they are REALLY high right now...my travel agent says they should go down in the summer, and at that point we can lock in the lower rates). Airfare is out for some airlines, not all...and actually, the resort we want to stay at for our honeymoon doesn't have their room rates out yet, which is weird.

I would say be next month ALL rates should be out...at least I hope that's the case!

Mexibride83 - How cool! Lets cross our fingers for awesome weather :) Your hotel looks so nice! When are you requesting an RSVP for the wedding? I've been consulting all of these books but I feel like they don't apply for a DW. I want to give people plenty of time, but I'd also like a "final" head count a 2 months out for budget reasons.

 

Bonnie - I bought all of my bridesmaids dresses when jcrew had their 30% off the sale price promotion. Lol. It was spur of the moment - I saw the sale and I frantically started texting everyone for sizes. Lets hope they fit a year from now! It sounds like the dresses you special order will be beautiful! I'd love to see some pics once you get them. Kool was pretty neat. We actually got to see a reception while we were there- the director told us to stop by so we viewed it from the beach at a distance. It was pretty cool...no pun intended:)

your rates flight rate should be out already. and your hotel rates are probably out just pretty high right now.

I have about another week til i'm able to book my flight. I can book the out going but not my return yet. so once I'm able to book my flights i'm gonna lock in on my rooms. I really don't care what the price is I just want to make sure I have my rooms.

and the whole thing about losing weight, I have a big problem with "dieting". I'm not on a diet. I'm changing the way I eat for the rest of my life!! I'm incorporating workouts into my routine. I'm getting older and I don't want to wait til i'm so old it will take me twice as long to lose weight. Yes, I'm eating mostly salads and staying away from junk food but that's because I don't want my body to depend on that bad stuff anymore. I'm doing more workouts so I can get to where I want to be and stay there. I don't like that whole not eating...I love food...and this is why i'm trying to lose weight now. lol But I just want to love working out also.

I'm getting married 1 week before you. We booked our flights about a month or so ago...hotel rates are still not out. It is driving me nuts!! My TA has booked us and some guests without rates, but we don't know how much exactly other than comparing it to the year before and adding 10% on to estimate.

I thought that they should be out too, but the TA says that both the vacation company (like Apple and Funjet) and our resort have not released 2011 rates. We are not using a site like destinationweddings.com. We are using a local TA. Maybe that has something to do with it? Dunno.

Would you mind telling me what rates you were quoted out of NY? was given an "estimate" of 1596 for a week flying out of Chicago and was told that nonstop would add up to 100.

Does that sound like a decent rate?

Linhy, my date twin, :) have you gotten your rates yet?

You should be able to book your hotel!!!My TA booked ours in December, and we have a signed wedding and room rate contract from the resort. Push your TA on this, he/she should be able to get rates...

I would have thought for those of you getting married in January you should be able to get both your rooms at the hotel- i know i am in the UK and using a TA to book but we managed to book flights from London to Cancun and the 9 hotel rooms we require on the 10th Nov 2009.

Hi! Didn't see your reply before submitting my last post.

I guess I'm confused on how this all works.

I was under the impression you had to book your flight and hotel as a package at the same time if you're going through a tour operator. Our TA is going to go thru Funjet, Apple, etc , whoever has the best deal.

Is that how you are doing it? If so, how were you able to book your flight and not your hotel?

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but can anyone break down for me exactly what the TA does, what the resort does, and what the tour operator does -- and how they go about quoting us our group rates?

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
