    We booked our flights about a month ago...really good pricing. TA didn't think prices would go any lower than they were. I also dragged in all of my BM's and made them book the flight, I don't want to see people pay crazy amounts if they don't have to.

      Hey ladies! I think I will be a January Bride at the Gran Porto Real! I am waiting for the TA to get the booking done so I can feel sure. So far we have obviously picked the resort and a tentative date of the 15th, but need to get that confirmed by the TA. I have the dress picked out but not purchased yet. i will do that by the end of the month as I have some credit at David's to use by then.

      I made my first wedding purchase yesterday! I bought tin sand pails at the Target dollar spot for our flower girl baskets! I am so excited!

I just talked to Apple Vacations, the guy told me he should have rates for my resort in 1-2weeks...so, lets hope thats the truth

          Welcome Daily2011 and MrsC-to-Be...yay for us January brides! I can't believe it's LESS THAN 10 MONTHS till the big day for all of us. That is just blowing my mind!!

          And it's super weird how different wholesalers/resorts have their prices out at different times. My wedding resort has had prices out for over a month, but my honeymoon resort (Cozumel Palace) still doesn't have any prices out. It's all driving me nutso!

            Daily 2011 - welcome along to the party :-) I have just started buying bits and pieces as well.
            Mrsctobe - hello! Wierd isnt i booked my AHR before my wedding.

            I dont understand how all these pricing things work either - cause like i have said before i was able to book my hotel and wedding through a TA in Nov 09!!

            cjb0arder13 - 10 months - woo hoo - this time next year we will all be married!!

            Just cant believe how quick the time is going by - each weekend i keep thinking i will set aside a day to make final decisions on things and i never do. Im just not a 'to do' list person. I think once i have my dress ready to collect in 10 weeks it will all seem v real and not far away.

              My TA got to me today with rates on three different resorts. I had been thinking the Real Gran Porto but The Barcelo Palace came in at a really great price. Now I am torn!!!!!

                Just had a sneaky peek at these hotels as i love seeing other brides choices. What a lovely decision to have to make - one luxury hotel or the other......
                Let us know your choice.

                  Hi everyone!
                  Has anyone ordered their dress off the internet? Can you recommend any sites? And did you try similar ones on before you ordered? I´m having a nightmare as most of the dresses in the bridal shops here are huge satin numbers, and i really want a lightweight slim one, but i´m nervous of ordering without being able to try the style first.... maybe i should fly back to the uk for a couple of days!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      don't be silly, You r still more than welcome to stay with this thread! We are all in the same planning phase & can use one another's input :o)

                      that makes two of you. . . Futuremrsyak is thinking of moving her date to nov or dec as well! I am still waiting on our rates to come down and am wondering how much cheaper early Dec was for you.

                      Would you mind sharing the price difference?
