    By the way, our wedding is one month from today. Can't believe the time went by so fast!

I went to the website last night and checked on rates and they have indeed gone down since I last priced it a month ago. No one wants to pay more than they have to (including me) but when part of the appeal was discounted rates for a large group booking - you kind of expect them to follow through. We'll see how it turns out and if they modify the pricing.

      Congrats on the dress fitting! That's exciting! And I'm sure - an eye opener on what areas to work on! :-)

        Ok we had the pricing issue a few times when we were at Paradisus previously... tell your agent to get moving on it!! Our rates went down twice! Although, you do have some time since your wedding is in January... so you might just want to wait a few more months and get the reduced rate then. Been there, done that!

              Ladies I leave in 3 days for EDR!!!! I can't believe how fast it went! I just finished packing and I fit all of the wedding stuff we are bringing down into 2 suitcases! A lot cheaper than shipping it down ahead of time...only $50 dollars :) What is everyone putting in their welcome bags? I have some things already but it looks like they need a bit more in them...so I guess I'll grab some stuff down there :) Let me know what you are doing!!!

                  OMG I'm sooooo excited for you! I actually started packing up my OOT bag suitcase on the weekend just to see if I had enough room. We've done all the basics that everyone else put into their bags. Just need to get some gum, snacks and the Advils and we are done. And it all fit into the 2 suitcases I bought other than the steins but those can go into another bag no problem. I'm sure you'll be able to find some things down there to fill up your bags if you need to. Good luck and have a great trip and a wonderful wedding. Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!
                  Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love

                    Do you know who DW books the rooms through? For example, funjet vacations.
                    Just curious.
