    Yeah I just spoke to my TA.. she said because we are in the high seasons and that price is pretty good for January. I kind of agree with her since I've done all my research as well. The prices change in different season/month. I should of picked a different month to get married in haha but I can't wait any longer hehe.

      Linhy - Oh, you are so right, I didn't think about the fact that May is their low season. That makes sense then!

      Michelle - Let me know what you find out, I'm crossing my fingers for you and May 28th:) I think it's a great date haha. My planning is going great! Our contract is finally in and our deposit is down, we're all set with the resort! I booked the photographer today as well. Moments that Matter, they're so awesome and my fiance has been campaigning for them from the start haha. They've inspired him to move to Mexico and be a photographer, not that we're good at photography or anything:)

      For the people who arrive on the same day or before us, we're just still going to have the resort put their OOT bags in their rooms when we have the bags ready. So they just won't get them upon arrival, but we figured they'd understand!

        Hey girls! I just posted this on the attire thread, but thought I'd post it here too to give you all a heads up:)

        I just saw on Gilt Groupe that on March 12, 2010, they are going to have a "Wedding Weekend" sale! For those of you who don't know what Gilt Groupe is, it's an online sample sale website, where you can get designer products for 50% off. You do have to be a member, but I think you can just go to the website and join. If not, send me a PM with your email address and I can send you an invitation to join.

        Here is what is says:
        The countdown’s on. Each day brings you closer to your big day but also closer to Gilt’s big Wedding Weekend. Are you still looking for The One? You’ll find it this weekend — the dress that makes your heart skip a beat, brings a smile to your face, and is as stunning going down the aisle as it is getting down on the dance floor. (Like this gorgeous gown by Carolina Herrera.) As for your girls, if you want them to stay your BFFs after the wedding, go for the sweet, stylish bridesmaids’ dresses by Thread, Amsale and Vera Wang Lavender. The little things count big-time, so max out the cuteness of your flower girls (without maxing out your credit card) and score an adorable dress by Pippa and Julie. Elle McPherson Intimates, Lulu Frost hair accessories and Hickey Freeman Boys are just some of the other designers you’ll see in our sales this weekend.

        In response to some questions, the Gilt rep said:
        We have everything from shoes to traditional and non-traditional gowns, dresses for members of the bridal party, jewelry, gifts for the bride and groom and bridal party, flower girl dresses, honeymoons, tuxes and more! Many of the items in the sale will be sold with our normal return policies, however some special items, including gowns, will be final sale. We have chosen these gowns so carefully for you, I am sure you'll be happy with your purchases. And the amazing prices mean you can afford the very best tailor... and STILL save a ton of money. Just remember to size up, as you would for any dress you are having fitted to you. - Cristina from Gilt

        Yay - this is SO exciting!!!! :)

          WOW....this sounds AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing!
          Yeah, size up is the right thing to do. One of my size 0 friend, she barely fit into her size 4 dress, and one size 8-10 friend's bridemaid dress is a size 14!

              Be careful, some hotels still get sold out pretty fast in May. I am on the Royal PDC Thread, and a May 2010 Bride is facing this problem, her hotel is fully booked on her week, and most of her guests are still waiting for their tax refund before booking their trips!

              Congrats on booking the hotel and the photog! Moments that Matter are Canucks, I think...It doesn't require a lot to convince a Canadian to move to Mexico! no more -40C degree winter with 20 inches of snow! no more 40% taxes on income! Photog can make good money (from their pricings...) $300-$900 per hour, that is more than what a lawyer makes.

                  Therefore, we have to make sure that our guests are not waiting til the last minute to book their trip, if not, we may spend extra $$$ on day passes to get them into the hotel!

                    I know what you mean! I hate when guests wait for last minute. but then I do understand they need to wait if they can make it or not.

                      My fiance and I invited around 42 people. I have a feeling that not everyone is gonna go. We are debating if we should have a backup list or not. I want at least 25 people. That way it'll look like a completed wedding hahaa.
