    hello everyone- we are thinking about secrets moroma or the royal for 1/29/11. we are really concerned about the pricing stituation. the quote we got for 1 week st secrets was around $5800 per couple for 1 week. this includes airfare from boston. i think that is alot for us to ask our guests. do the prices generally go down? i am afaird to secure the date if the prices remain the same! anyone know anything abour the excellence resort? lindobride14 you dress is amazing!

      Welcome along,mellyrobert, debbmach and suprise4us.

      Lindobride - your dress looks beautiful - you will look gorgeous on your day. Thanks for your comments on my BM dress - I wouldnt mind one myself :-)

      With regards to pricing i obviously works differently here in the UK as i booked back in November for our Jan 2011 trip. There is no movement on the prices as they are always through a TA and once the prices are published in the brochures there is no room for manouvere. For a flight from London to Cancun and 2 weeks AI was £1100 (i dont know how that transfers into your currencies) - that was per person. But I know having looked on some other threads people are saying the prices have gone sky high.

      I shall post a pic of my dress (on a model) as it being made and I havent got a picture of me in it yet. Let me know your thoughts.

            Beautiful wedding dress, Josie! It's very elegant. I think the pleats gives it that something special. It looks like it will have good, flowy movement in the breeze :)

                Hey lovely ladies! I am booked for January 31st at Azul Beach in the Riviera Maya. I sent out invitations about a month ago (I know that's super early, but I wanted a lot of lead time since my resort is super tiny and I was worried about it selling out!). I have my dress...here's a pic:

                Click the image to open in full size.

                Definitely have to get it altered a bit, but I'm still losing weight (15 pounds down...another 15 or so to go!) so I'm going to wait until September or so to get it altered.

                I, too, am freaking out about prices. Our "rack rates" right now are about $1750 per person for 7 nights, without flights. Direct flights are about $500 pp, so we're looking at $2250 per person...eek!!! I was hoping to keep it UNDER $1700 with flight for 7 nights, so we'll see. My TA says the specials should come out in summer, and at that point we can lock in the lower rates. Right now we have 8 booked including FI and I; expecting at least 10 more.

                Other than that, I don't have anything done! I'm totally wanting a super laid back wedding. I'm not going to be doing center-pieces, or a wedding cake, or anything like that. Pretty much just the wedding ceremony and private dinner, then it's party time!!

                  Hi! Did you write a note or anything asbout rates should come down soon or whatever in your invitations? I've been putting off sending out our save the date letters because I don't want to scare guests off when they call our TA and hear the current prices! Now Im thinking that maybe I should just get them out though. Any tips?

                    Yep! I included an "informational sheet" inside the invites. I basically said what the current prices were, but that I hoped and expected them to drop later in the summer. We are able to just put a deposit of $150 per person to reserve the room, which basically confirms the current prices, but if/when they drop lower the rates will adjust and lock in at the lower rate.

                    Does this make sense? It's Monday, and I'm a bit ya know??
