    We are waiting to book our flight on Airtran because they have a direct flight from Baltimore, unfortunately they only have through November.

        Michelle,
        All of us are 2011, so...still more than 6 months to go at least. I can't stress everyday for my wedding, of course I would talk about smth else to relax a bit.
        In life there are known knowns (which we all try to manage like make sure the date we want is available, put a deposit to secured it), known unknowns (the weather can be bad or can be nice...it is known fact that the weather on our day is an unknown), unknown knows (something like..we know there are muzzies, but we just don't know if they will eat us or not) and the unknown unknowns ( a.k.a Black Swan in financial term, which we have no clue what they are...so..there is nothing we can do to prepare for it).

        Heehee I thought of 11-11-11 as well, but it isn't really a good day in chinese calendar, and not convenient for people with kids in school.

        As for budget of the guests, beside my grannies who my parents want to pay for them 110%, I picked the Royal Playa Del Carmen, so people will kids and budget limits can stay at the Gran Porto Real ( which is very nice and great value), and they can come over on my day without paying a day pass.

          Question.... are any of you girls getting your fiances wedding gifts? And if so, do you have any ideas yet as to what you are going to get them?

            I like practical gifts, so I will gift him a white gold bracelet or Burberry cufflinks, it will depend on my budget and bonus! heehee

              Busy Busy ladies on here..just love going back and reading all the random conversations =)

              I think I will buy my fiance a gift for the wedding day- to get while he's getting ready for the big moment. Most likely a watch or something practical as well.

              Love all the dog talk- we have a Westie and are soo in love with him- he is like another kid to us- but the next dog will be a big rescue mutt, but that wont happen till after the wedding.

              How annoying for all of you who cant book yet. We are all booked and just waiting on deposits from guests- 12 booked so far!!! Your right about Canadian travel agents- It seems that package deals are the only option-

              We are still trying to decide on a honeymoon resort though (for the second week) my future hubby is really set on Cozumel so we will most likely go there- any suggestions?? We are open to not all inclusive as well, since we will be coming from a week of all inclusive it might be night to get out and try different restaurants in the city.

              Riri- Congrats on booking your date!! that seems like a popular day to get married

                  We have our rooms blocked off with rates/contract and everything also. We didn't go through a TA though, we went directly through the hotel and they gave us group rates. They set a website up for us that allows our guests to go on and book their own rooms any time now.

                    Wow Rachel they are lovely! I was thinking about chain/braclet like Bonnie, (it's Dan's 30th this yr so i've bought him a designer watch like he did for me on my 30th, as i would have got him this for his wedding gift) He's already got loads of cufflinks etc... But this is a lovely idea. I wonder if we can get them done in the UK. I'm not to body confident but i would love to have something like this for Dan! What a great idea. What is your favourite look? They are all so pretty/girlie! Your FI will love it!!!!
