        any other april 2011 brides actually book yet?

        FI and i have reserved our wedding date/time at the Riu Negril but it is not confirmed until we have a booking number (have until Aug to get this). We basically have to work on booking right away but I suppose guests don't have to right away?

        Our imemdiate family and friends know about the DW and the date, but we still really wanted to send out STDs to everybody which will include a link to our website filled with travel info. I was thinking of sending the actual invite November-ish? giving those who haven't booked by then lots of time still.

        My only question to you guys - have you had luck with group rates? ie. I just got an amazing group rate quote, however it's only good for 60 days... would like to be able to have a group quote good for like 6 months or so. thoughts?

          I have booked and put our deposit down for the resort for wedding and honeymoon. I decided not to book for the group because I can't determine from now who is seriously going to be coming for our wedding being a destination and all.

          I have also only sent out email save dates so far and 2 couples have already booked. I will be sending paper save the dates also especially to thoes who have no email addresses.

          But now that people are booking it really feels REAL.

                i haven't even really thought about going dress shopping yet, but i'll probably be nervous as well when the time comes. we're trying to do this dw on a very tight budget so i promised myself i'd spend under $500 on the dress. it just so happens i found out about a store in Toronto (near me) where every single dress is brand new (from collections from 2008 or older) and every single dresss is $299!! i don't think i'm going to be very picky so i've decided that once i have the cash saved up, i will go. :)

                ..i'm also trying to put off my dress shopping as long as possible because i'm not very good at keeping secrets from my FI - especially if it's something i'm excited about!!! keeping the dress a secret will be a BIG DEAL for me!!! lol

                    are there any david's bridal stores in your area? i've seen many amazing dresses on their website for under $200. Unfortunately with me being in Canada, there's no stores here where i could even try on and i'm not too keen on the idea of just buying a dress online. maybe you could find your dream dress there?
                    good luck!!! :)

                      I've had my dress for seven months now hanging in my closet. My FI will NOT look at it! I have even had moments of weakness where I've been like, "Man, let's just peek at it" and he refuses! Good man!
