They really liked the Riu! We recommended it to them because we have stayed at 2 Riu's in the past (Cabos and Cancun) and have always enjoyed them. The Riu was just a few miles from the Royal which was great. Your guests will love being so close to 5th Avenue. It's so much fun!

I'm bummed to hear about AA, I believe we're flying with them. I was pretty surprised to find that Delta didn't have any direct flights to Cancun on the days we're traveling. I'm thinking of rolling up my dress and putting it my regular carry-on bag. Our wedding package includes ironing/steaming of the wedding clothes, so I might as well pack as much as possible with it!

Hey fellow Minnesota gals!!
One pice of advice about traveling with your dress - my recomendation as a bridal shop owner is to roll it in white bedsheets (loosely) and put it in its own carryon piece of luggage. You could also put your veil in with it, but thats about it. Airlines are wierd about letting you hang it and to be honest, it will travel better in luggage that it will hanging. I promise. One of my manufacturers recommends flipping the dress inside out, but I don't think this works all that well because you have a higher chance of the beads snagging on other beadwork. Once you get to wherever you are going, hang that baby up (in a friends room if fiance can't see it) and let it air out. The humidity will help with residual wrinkles. If you still have wrinkles after a few days, try and hang it in the bathroom while you run a steamy shower. That should do the trick - and then you don't have to worry about the on-site people havign to press it.
I don't recommend keeping it in the plastic bag - it can cause mold and smells.
BUT what I really wanted to post about was a get together! Would you ladies be interested in getting together and chatting about your wedding plans, ideas, girl talk, etc... I miss planning my wedding now that its over and I think it would be really fun! Past, present and future brides would be welcome!
If enough people seem interested, I can arrange something at my store in Uptown. I have a travel agent friend who I could persuade to come out too if you girls want. We could do appetizers, champagne, and wedding chat!! I think it sounds so fun! And if you want, of course you can try on some dresses . No pressure though, I want it to be a fun night. Bring your friends and bridesmaids too.
I will provide the food, champagne, location, and dresses - we can work on a date that works for everyone. Tentatively, we could say Saturday evening on October 16th? What do you think? RSVP with how many ppl you will bring and if we can get 10 people, then I will book it!
