Sounds like we are at about the same point in planning. We have the opposite issue, however, when it comes to guests booking. We have over 30 guests with rooms booked and now everyone is panicking about flights! We only have about 8 with flights booked! You got a good deal with Volaris! They fly out of TJ, right...how is that airport?
We're trying to get invites out at the beginning of next month. I had Ginger at Beyond Design design them and send me the digital files so my future sister in law and I can assemble them. Time consuming, but it will save me some money! We also just finished making all the menus, fabric luggage tags, and "gringo recovery kits".
I'm thinking everything is booked...officiant, florist, DJ, guitarist, blood work and judge, welcome dinner, hair and make-up. We finally decided on the centerpieces to use the sand filled hurricanes with candles - 3 on each table. I know exactly what you mean about flowers being sooo pricey!
OOT bags are pretty much done if I can ever stop buying stuff for them! I got a great deal on pashminas for the ladies - and those are supposed to be in Friday, so I'm excited to get them. Let me know if anyone needs the link to where I purchased them....they were great to work with!
Bridesmaids dresses and shoes are done, FI has his suit, and I have my dress and shoes (still need alterations). I also bought a beautiful hair comb on etsy, but need to finish picking out jewelry. We also purchased some Tommy Bahama shirts for my dad and step-dad (both are walking me down the aisle).
That's all I can think of at the moment - how's it coming along for the rest of us?!?

We have a deadline with our group block to be able to release rooms without penalty so I would like our guests to get the invites asap.
We have had about 25-30 guests already book flights but not nearly that many have booked rooms. There was a sale during xmas time on a mexican airline called Volaris. Since most of our guests are in san diego, they were able to save some $. Roundtrip tickets were $147!! So cheap! So that's why so many have booked flights.
I am working with my florist on the centerpieces. I am still a bit undecided. I really wanted callas and peonies but they are both very expensive. I am taking real touch bouquets down with me for myself, the BM's and all the bout's as well. Working with wed-ideas on these.
All of my BM dresses/shoes have been purchased and MY dress is in my possession still need alterations though.
How is everyone elses planning going?
