    I think that sounds reasonable. We are using YourCancunDMC.com and they are charging:

    Round trip: $100.00 US (1 - 3 people)
    Round trip: $110.00 US (4 - 8 people)

    They set up a personalized website for our guests to input their arrival info which I thought was pretty cool. We are expecting a lot of ppl though so this is prob not necessary for smaller parties.

                  You're not alone! I feel the same way. All of the major vendors and details are all done but the little tasks are the most daunting! There are so many of them. I've been trying to accomplish one or two of the smaller things each week so that I don't drive myself crazy. I thought having a DW would so easy and relaxing and some times I feel like it's more work than a local wedding! In the end though it will all be worth it :)

                  Girls attire: 4 out of 5 finalized, one girl will hopefully loose weight to fit into the dress (she really liked one and they dont make it her size, she did have a second kid this year so she elected to keep it and loose weight)

                  I am just exhuasted though by all the small details...anyone else feels like they are done some days and completely behind other days? Its 100 days today till the big day and something like 95 until we leave!! woot woot or yikes?

                    I can't believe it's less than 100 days!! Time is going to fly by now.

                    I finally sent out my invitations last week :) What a relief. So much work.

                    We also did our registry and figured out the GM attire.

                    All the big things are done.

                    But it's true, there are just SOOOO many little details, it's hard to keep your head around them all. But at least it's things that if it doesn't happen, it won't make or break the wedding.


                    I have my first dress fitting today! I am pretty excited to get an idea of what's going to happen to it. It's a corset so losing or gaining 5 pounds probably won't do anything with alterations. I'm just confused because you're supposed to wear the shoes you're going to wear for the wedding. And I'm going barefoot for the ceremony and I'll bring heels for the reception, but I feel like I'll just wear flip flops since who's gonna see my feet? And my FH is only a few inches taller than me, so heels will make us the same height.

                    What are girls thinking of doing? Heels or flip flops?
