    Merrylee, 

     

    Aww thanks so much.  If we are there before 4 I sure will!  We will keep in touch throughout the thread and exchange information as we all prepare to head to mexico around the same time (how exciting).

     

    The dress you showed is gorgeous!!!!  Have you tired it on yet?  How does it fit?

    JLC I found a dress at Davids' Bridal that I like in the picture but it is also $1150 and I am not spending that much, but I love it and I think it will help cover my flaws, but I also think I might go the knockoff route I just have to go try one on and see how I feel.

    I am bringing my photographer down with me as he's a pro and friend.

     

    Tonight I am going to have punch through a zillion of my year to go postcards because I don't know where this week went and I want them sent out tomorrow so that they will arrive on the official 365 days to go. Stupid leap year :)

      I am feeling so behind! Everyone is so on task! I am almost done with my STDs and am excited. Originally I liked Kelly's idea of MIB but then realized it's probably out of my budget since I already had plain white invites from a while ago. Ill post some pics. 

       

      merrylee that dress is beautiful!! I want to know if you've tried it on also?!

        No I haven't tried it on yet.  That is the next thing I have to do.  I hate my arms so strapless scares the #(#)@ out of me :)

          No not yet, I was just trying to find something that I felt like I loved before going shopping.  Because I literally had no idea.  I hate my upper arms so strapless dresses scare the poo outta me :)  But that is something i have to do in the next month or so....

           

          the ladies at work say I am worth the dress but it's so hard to spend that kind of money on a single outfit.

            Merrylee - I agree with the ladies at work....you ARE worth the dress. This is not just any "outfit" - this is your wedding gown! I think the dress you posted is beautiful. I think the price for a wedding gown is very reasonable. So many gowns nowadays are 3K and up. In regards to trying on a strapless, let's face it ... we are getting married in a tropical setting... neither one of us, regardless of our current body image issues, are gonna get away with wearing long sleeves. You have a full year to tone the arms up. It's not like you have purchased a dress 2 sizes smaller than you are currently wearing and you are trying to fit your hips into it, I think that would be more difficult. I would love to hear the news that you have tried the dress on. I made myself a promise that I would begin dress shopping the last weekend in April. I will let you ladies know how it goes. I decided that I will take pics to motivate myself for those days that I don't want to workout. Please keep us posted, Merrylee...we are all here to encourage each other!

                Ladies,

                 

                Have anyone tried to have their contract amended to add an outside vendor? Or does anyone have a contract with permission to use an outside vendor in it already? 

                 

                I have Janina Mendoza for my Miami coordinator and over the weekend, I asked for our contract to be amended to allow DJ Mannia (a well know DJ at Moon Palace) to be added in.  This afternoon I received a reply stating "Sorry but we do not accept outside vendors, we do have our own; we will gladly contact you with them if you want."

                 

                I'm going to ask for a list of their "approved vendors." As I do not want to use their DJ as I have heard mixed reviews, and their prices are crazy hi.  Stay tuned.

                 

                If anyone has an approved vendor, would you mind PMing me the language used in your contract.

                 

                Thanks

                  Oh man...

                   

                  I haven't even thought about my contract...I was thinking I just wasn't going to say anything and buy a couple day passes for my Photographers....and I think I will be using Deco Cancun, so other than that I don't know if I will be using other outside vendors...I might try and be sneaky and order my flowers from a local florist and have them delivered like a few other brides have done...although I don't know how they explained it to the coordinator... 

                   

                  Ugh all this makes me just stress! It shouldn't have to be this hard! 

                   

                  Have any of you ladies looked into other ways to get the stuff you are bringing down there? I was thinking about it and don't know how I can fly a bunch of tea light holders and what not down there...it will weight A TON! I was thinking about trying to find a shipping depot or something, and then pick our packages up when we get there. I don't even know if that is possible....

                    They will not do it in the actual contract, but I do have permission via email to use outside vendors that I will be using if they try to cause issues
