      Not exactly Minneapolis, but Duluth. Spend a lot of time in the cities, and even doing a 10 week internship in Anoka in the fall!

        YEAH! There doesn't seem to be many Minnesotans out there right now. Very nice to meet you. Where will you be interning?

          Not quite MPLS but I'm in Austin, MN just an hour or so South.

            I used to drive through Austin a lot! I grew up in Des Moines, and went to school in Winona. Austin was right on the way. I'm also getting married Jan 2011. How is your planning going?

              A bit frustrating as the rates are not out for next year yet and the TA here won't do anything until the rates come out. I have selected the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen Mexico. I was checking with the resort today and it appears someone might have stolen my day and time slot! I was so hoping for it...I guess I will have to be happy with another option. I am sure I can find one that will work just as well!

              How is yours?

                Michelle10- I'm interning with Anoka-Hennepin School district as a physical therapist. So I guess its based in Anoka, but then we'll drive around to the children's houses too. Where in Jamaica is your wedding?

                Daily2o11- I used to go to school in La Crosse, WI, so any time I drove to the city I would see lots of signs for Austin! I am having my wedding at the end of December in Playa! I feel ya on the frustrating part, rates are just coming out for december. Luckily I was able to reserve my date, and the resort gave me an extension until May until I have to book and fully reserve, so hoping better deals will be out by then!

                  Jnagan2011: I had a really hard time deciding between the Riu and Royal properties. I am interested to hear your experience. I ultimately made the decision based on cost and what my TA was telling me about service. However, all the ladies on this forum have been saying that the Royal's service leading up to the transfer to the Mexican WC is awful. It is making me second guess...AGAIN. Luckily I can't put a deposit down yet!

                  I know there are more of us from MN around here. There is a gal from the Royal who is getting married in a couple of weeks from Mpls. We should plan a cities meet up.

                    Hopefully other MN folks will post here as well. It would definitely be fun to meet up.

                    I am getting married in Montego Bay, and honeymooning in Negril. Rates aren't available yet (airfare or hotel) for Jamaica either. I booked my wedding date at 2 resorts, and have 90 days to make my final decision. Luckily, neither resort required a deposit to hold the date! YEA!
