This makes me worried.  I e-mailed him last night about prices and I heard RIGHT back from him.  Then it seems like he has no follow through.

Rae did you find out if you could switch your flights?! Where are you suppose to be flying too? And yes I have come across a few people who may be coming alone. Most of the single guests will be paired up eventually so it works out ok since they all know each other or know of each other. My thoughts are a lot of people will not be in the room and will be hanging out as a group around the resort.

Marvin has reached out to me.  Actually since last week he has been responding to all of my emails and quickly I might add.  He's sent me pictures and eventually a quote.  I was surprised at how quick he responded after my experience and reading all of the responses.  Good luck to everyone.

I did.  We just had people room together.  It is pretty expensive if you are by yourself.  My photographer ended up  staying with one of my good single friends and now they are actually good friends.  Or maybe your future brother in law needs to get himself a girlfriend!

Ahhh thankfully we were able to switch the flights.  It only cost me $50 to switch it.

 

Now I am working with Marvin.  He just sent me some pictures of sample flower bouquets.  So exciting!!

 

I am hoping that he can room with his mother if necessary.  We probably wouldn't have had this problem if we started planning sooner.

 

 Suddenly more people are deciding to join us!

It looks like we'll have at least 20 people now!  I'm excited because we just had a few at first!!  I would LOVE if we could have at least 30!!

 

Have you summer brides ordered your decor yet?  I don't want to go too crazy for 20 people but I want it to look nice still. I think that I am going to order some chair sashes soon and maybe some fans and umbrellas for the heat. 

 

Also, is EVERYONE doing OOT bags??  I am trying to think of something else that I might be able to do that might be creative.

I just heard from my wedding coordinator!  I'm so excited.  She actually scheduled a phone call with me tomorrow.  We have 97 guests confirmed and a few more to go.

Am I the only one who thinks it's absolutely INSANE that you are getting married in only 3 weeks, and you are JUST hearing from your wedding coordinator? Do people in Mexico not realize how much planning goes into a wedding?! I can't believe they make us operate this way.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
