    Hi There

    Hello to everyone! The info on this site has be great!

    Here is my overview!

    My destination wedding is at the Riu Caribe in Cancun on April 8th.

    We have about 18 couples coming and we have decided against having a wedding party, it will just be the two of us.

    We were legally married in Toronto in September so this will be a Vow Renewal for us.

    I am a little stressed, my travel agent recieved ONE email from the wedding coordinated and despite the fact that I have emailed her 3 times I have had ZERO replies.

    I am still putting together my OOT bags, I have orded insulated travel mugs from Discount mugs, waterproof tip and room card holders from ebay and picked up odds and ends. Of course nothing has arrived yet!

    I just realized by reading through this forum that my package will include a dinner but not a "reception" hmmmm do I need to make additional arrangement?

    Yikes :)

          You guys are too cute! I have never heard of the sleeps reference and was wondering what was up. Now I am learned - LOL!! Good luck with everything & happy planning! Just take some deep breaths and remember, as long as you are there together with those closest ones around you, supporting you, then it will all be as it should! :)

            Welcome! I giggled a bit at 21 sleeps, too. Made me think of the kids I work with and the way they count down to Christmas- I've been feeling like a kid waiting for Christmas lately so I can totally relate. I hope you find the site helpful and that everything goes smoothly for you. Good luck!
            Loving married life!

                    Welcome my fellow Canuck! ARe you in Olympics withdrawal too? I would be getting after those suppliers to make sure your OOT bag supplies are in transit. 21 sleeps will go by pretty quickly. As for the dinner vs. reception, yes, they can be interpreted as two seperate events. The WCs are infamous for not responding to questions, and this is not isolated to any one hotel, they're pretty much ALL that way! That said, I wouldn't worry about this. Once you get there, the final arrangements will be made with your WC and it will surely be no problem to ensure you have a dinner AND reception. Just make sure you're bringing your own music if you're not going to hire their DJ. An ipod dock and speakers you can rent from the hotel are all you need (plus someone to be your designated music person). Good luck and congrats!
