    Is anyone having problems getting RSVPs back? My side has mostly all replied, but nearly NONE of Fi's has yet. We're going to send out a "friendly reminder" email soon. It's getting close people! We need to know!

      JBean -

      Hardly anyone RSVP'd to us.  We basically knew who was going to come based on who would talk to us about the trip versus those that would avoid the topic.  I considered a plane ticket/room reservation as the only true RSVP for an event like this.  Our group rate closed on August 15th and there are still 3-4 people that may come.  However, I am assuming that if they let the group rate close then they aren't going to come but they just have a hard time telling us they aren't coming.  However, if people book at the last minute, then I will do my best to have enough OOT bag items, programs, etc. for them, but if I am a bit short then "oh well" that is what they get for waiting until the last minute.
       

      I think a friendly email reminder is the best thing you can do.  I would just add in some wording explaining that you understand many people won't be able to make it...blah, blah, blah.  I tried to word things that way to allow people to say they aren't coming without any guilt.

       

      I ended up with considerably fewer people at the wedding than I had originally thought would come.  (We will likely stay at 26 adults and 3 kids)  And all I can say is thank goodness - I am stressing enough about the people that are coming...I can't imagine if it were the 50 or so that I thought would be coming.

       

      Good luck getting a response one way or the other!

                  I feel a lot more ready after yesterday.  I received the OOT bags, lanyards, playing cards, notepads and gummy flip flops from OTC yesterday in the mail.  I also placed my order for the luggage tags, room key holders and the LED votive candles we will be using.  I also have the templates done for the luggage tags, room key holders, chapsticks, first-aid kits and monogram stickers.  The pre-travel brochures were purchased and should be coming in the next 2 weeks.  It felt so good to get that all taken care of and checked off.  Just waiting to make the trip to the $1 store to get the other stuff for the OOT bags.  Oh....and waiting patiently for the phone to ring and have it be the bridal store telling me my dress came in hehe.

                    Hi ladies!  Guess I'm officially joining the November club too!  My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos on 11.25.11.  (day after Thanksgiving)  We figured since we'll mostly be with family anyway we'd make a mini-vacation out of it.  We're getting excited but I just realized how much I have left to do after reading your posts!  We've booked Juan Carlos Tapia for photos and Jorge Ibarra for our videographer.  Would love to hear feedback/see pics through the month of November.  Congrats to you all!!!
