Sure, do u know any good tattoo artist in Phuket? My FI is somehow into tattoos, and he really wants a 3rd one before he becomes a dad ( don't ask me why...I never get this part...but hey, I guess it is like he never figure why I spent so much time on this forum or flipping wedding magazines).

You girlies going on a honeymoon are sooooooooooo lucky! It's costing quite a bit going to Mexico for 2wk's from the UK and then the AHR so we wont have a honeymoon. Plus we have children.....
I think we may book a long weekend away a few months after the wedding and get mum to stay with the kids, just so we have some time on our own. But we'll see what happens...
Linhy - I can't believe how much you have done! wow. I feel behind!
I have got my dress and booked the AHR and that's it! We need to book Mexico, wedding bands, bridesmaid dresses, shoes, groom outfit, invites, OOT bags.....lots to do, but i'm feeling quite relaxed about it but then i do have over a yr still to plan!

OMG I am in the EXACT same situation. I booked the Lindo for our 01/22/11 wedding and paid the deposit to secure our date based on an estimate our TA gave of around 1596pp for a week.
Well, as of today, the "rack rate" is $2139!! I know she said estimate, but $500-600 more?!
I contacted a diff TA who specializes in DWs and it was explained to me that Iberostar resorts have not negotiated their 2011 contracts with tour operators (such as Apple, Funjet, etc) yet and that they will do so ANY DAY NOW. As soon as they do, the rates should go down.
This may be the case for you girls too -- hope so!
To add insult to injury, my sister's coworker informed her today that she'd been to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo recently and she told her that she thought $1500 for a week "sounded high" LOL. At this point I would welcome 1500 with open arms!
I made the mistake of opening my fat mouth and telling a few friends & family members that it should be in the neighborhood of 1500 plus or a minus a few hundred $. Whoops
My TA said the specials will come out in summer, and at that point we can lock in the lower rate. If all else fails, I can always switch to a different, less expensive resort. Luckily my room deposits will transfer, but the wedding deposit won't. I'll just have to wait and see!! This is the most frustrating thing so far!

Thank you very much!! just resent an email.

My FI was like the last thing for me to do is to "plot the prices on a chart" and start doing a technical analysis..and come up with a forecast and issue a research report.
