    Regarding the chrismas lights... on a 9' pole, it doesn't make sense they'd only use one 6' strand of lights... I'm looking at a pic that Valeria sent me, and it doesn't look like they used icicle lights either, unless they twisted all the icicles together with the main strand. I don't know, ugh... I guess I'll have to play with a strand when I take mine out for xmas and see what they look like LOL! I think we'd need at least 2 strands per pole, though. That is getting to be a bit of a lot in the suitcase...

      I was just wondering the same thing...there is no way a 6ft strand is going to make all the way down a 9ft pole with a 12in diameter and look good. I think she did send me a picture of icicles but I think the regular strands look better. think I may just do without the lights, I don't know if I want to deal with traveling with them to and from. I am having 8 Tiki Torches, 25 candle bags, 3 lanterns with votives and tee lights on the tables...hopefully that will be enough light/decor. She is a lot nicer to you than she is to me, I must have made her mad. lol

      well ladies, it's my turn. we leave in the morning! 

       

      two of my guests aren't going to make it due to a medical emergency. 13 of our guests live in the areas of NYC that  

      have no power or water. Most of them appear to be safe and sound otherwise. We have no idea if they will go ahead and come to Mexico or not. the airports are scheduled to open tomorrow, and most of them are on Flights Friday/Saturday. I guess we'll see who shows up! 

       

      luckily, they were open to giving us a refund on the meals if the NY guests don't make it. but we're crossing our fingers. 

       

      just a wee bit of last minute stress. thanks Sandy!

      Well, I wish you and your guests a safe journey! I work in the aviation industry, and for the most part, I would think your guests from NY should have no issues with their flights (all the airports are open except Laguardia-and the hope to be open by tomorrow). Hope they didn't get too much damage to their homes!

       

      Best wishes for a beautiful and stressful wedding! Remember to breathe, and enjoy the moment!

        YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Allie!! I teared up a little bit just thinking about how exciting it is that it's finally here for you!! I feel like I've been along for the ride with some of you girls for so long now that it makes it that much more exciting!

        I was just wondering the same thing...there is no way a 6ft strand is going to make all the way down a 9ft pole with a 12in diameter and look good.

          HELLO LADIES!! After reading this thread and all of the bazillion posts, I'm finally deciding to post! Figured it'll be useful to have other brides that will be heading down to EDR late next year.  Our date is 10/4/13.  Really getting into the decision making now, private dinner, cocktail hour, photography, etc.  Exciting!!!! Anyone else doing an August, Sept, Oct, Nov 2013 wedding?

          Thank you! So far we know 3 aren't going to make it because their Flights were cancelled and not rescheduled until sunday. 6 have said they will make it, and the last 4 are unknown. Ahhh Mother Nature ! Resort is beyond gorgeous, staff is amazing! Beautiful weather too. I'm so happy ( so far) that we chose edr. We had 5 brides on our flight yesterday. Flight attendants were awesome with the dresses. No issues with our 5 bags of luggage with customs either. Green lights for both of us and we were through.

            Hey Allie, who did you fly with and do you remember how far out you booked your flights? best to book early or closer? We're going next October and are curious since flights aren't available just yet..

             

            Thanks!

            Nicole

              I highly recommend going with a travel agent. We were trying to do it ourselves, but soon learned it would be too stressful. The TA will have access to chartered flights and other information you don't. For example, they might already be able to see flights that are booked that far out. Having one has been really helpful, as they do this for a living. Plus this way, all our guests have to do is call her to arrange everything. Much fewer phone calls to the FI and me :)
