A TA does sound like the way to go...I have never been out of the country, so I have never needed to plan something like this out! Do you think they can give you a better deal than a room block? What about those travel sites like Travelocity, Priceline, Hotwire...ect? Are those something people would maybe get a better deal on?
I am pretty organized myself. My FI does spreadsheets for a living, so I gave him the task of putting hotel/flight/activity info together on a spreadsheet to send out to people. So far it looks pretty good! Its probably a good idea to let people know what the costs could be...although sometimes I worry that it could scare people away! Would you reccommend giving other hotel options nearby that are maybe more affordable? I would like as many people as I can get to book at MP so we could get the unlimited events.
I would love to post a picture of me wearing my dress...but my FI ask me not to take any pictures because he was afraid he would come across it. He is adamit that he be 100% surprised! I can post the store's picture though! I love it! I got it at Brides by Demetrios in Bellevue, WA. They were so great!
I ordered mine in White/Ivory. I also have a cathedral length veil that I got to go with it. I hope I will be able to wear the veil in Mexico...at least for the ceremony! But the dress is beautiful and I can't wait to wear it!
Thanks for all your help!
