      Hello,

      Can you tell me how you got airfare rates ?? Every site I check tells me hey have no packages..or are you booking hotel and airfare separate?

        Lovely dress Linhy..
        Great news ceecee.. dont forget the pics
        Michelle- congrats on getting the ahr worked out- were not going to do one-but can imagine it would be alot of work to put together

        Are any of you dealing with paranoid family/friends I have family (mainly an uncle) who are constantly telling everybody how unsafe it is to travel to Mexico, thats its crazy for us to be dragging all our loved ones there. It makes me nuts cause he has all the facts and number of deaths but they are no where near the Mayan Riviera and are along the border towns. If feels like im constantly defending Mexico and our decision...arg so annoying. I just hope he doesnt scare anybody out of coming.

            Hi All 2011 Brides!

            I'm a newbie and just started researching and found a TA, OMG can we say over helming..so many beautiful resorts in Mexico. My TA gave us some pricing and well, Im really disappointed. I thought Mexico would have some great prices/deals....She quoted us $3, 600 for 7 night and flight. Is this normal? It wasnt even a resort I wanted like Secrets. I'm starting to think maybe we should book on our own? I saw better prices online, i just hear TA is the best route. Any comments are you all using a TA maybe someone can refer me to theirs for better pricing. I live in Orange County.


            Im starting to feel freaked out being you cant get 2011 flight or rates yet? Any advice on what I should do first? Im just want to send out STD and have a resort already :)

                Mrs.G2B - welcome and congrats on your wedding! I can't help you with TA's as i'm from the UK but i know how frustrating it is waiting for the 2011 flights. So many of us are just sitting waiting and just want it booked. Hopefully by April we can book up! Let us know how you get on...

                  Julie,

                  As matter of fact, my overprotective dad is one of those paranoid people. I remember that he wouldn't let me to goto BBQ party, because...my hair/clothes would caught on fire, or goto the school ski trip because the ski poles may puncture my eyeballs! He can be great asset on the writing/directing team of the movie Final Destination.
                  Just tell him and ur guests that the gun, drug and war stuffs happen near the US border, and Cancun areas are very safe. It is like in Vancouver, you got some bad neighborhoods with druggies and crimes and you have fancy places like Vancouver West and Vancouver North.

                    Flight prices usually are listed 333 days prior. We booked our flights a few weeks ago..we have booked our rooms, although we do not have prices on the rooms. I just looked at the same time of year for the current year to get an idea. Also, I looked at the wedding packages at resorts to see what would fit our budget best.

                      Flying out from the west is always a bit more expensive. In Vancouver (North of OC), it is usually $1700-$1900 per person for 7 days stay. Maybe you should check the rates for Cabos (the west/pacific side). Of course, you should always check the internet site like Expedia...etc to make sure that your TA isn't overcharging you..
