      OMG My heart is actually HOT.  Like, I am going to have a heart attack!!!!!!!   This TRAVEL AGENCY IS GOING TO PUT ME IN THE CRAZYHOUSE.  I just found out that she didn't arrange for ANY TRANSFERS for our guests from the airport to the resort.  By fluke, in emailing w/ my planner at the resort, she asked me how we were all getting there.  So I just did it.  CAN YOU IMAGINE????  We leave in 14 DAYS. 

       

      ON TOP OF THAT.  We are leaving the Now Jade to go to La Perla for an additional week, so we need a xfr there.  Our Air Can tix include a xfr service, as well as our wedding pkg from the resort includes xfrs, so we want to use one of those xfrs to get us from the airport to Now Jade.  Then another from Now Jade to La Perla.  Then La Perla to airport.  Easy, right?   Oh no, she is telling us no, and we have to pay $150 for a xfr from La Perla to the airport.  This, after she told one of our guests that transfers are $30.00.    So why are we being charged $150?????    Someone please talk me off the ledge.

      I'm using USA transfers for my guests since our hotel doesn't include them. They have been a dream to work with and have the best rates on the whole coast. I did a lot of research before picking them, and I live here as well and asked around. Hope this helps!

            Went for my final fitting on Monday...expecting to take the dress home and it was way too big! :( So now it needs to be taken in again!! I feel like I haven't lost they much weight since my last fitting but apparently I had. And my dress has a lace up corset so I didnt think this would be a problem at all. So now we leave in about a week and I still don't have a dress in my possession...slightly freaking out.

              Obviously not the ideal situation but you have nothing to worry about.  When we start our alterations 6-8 weeks out we assume that it this long process that needs ample time, when in reality it's just our seamstresses managing their time by adding a huge buffer (understandable, but also overkill).  I started my alterations 7 weeks out, my second fitting was 3 weeks later, third fitting 10 days later (Bear in mind that my seamstress forgot to complete a hefty number of alterations from my second fitting, but completed them 24 hours), final fitting 3 day after that. I just picked up my dress this past Saturday; 11 days before leaving There's nothing like a hard deadline to light the fire under their butts. It be different if you were just getting started and needed major alterations, but a 1/2"-1" isn't a deal breaker in the alterations world. Just think of all the last minutes bride who go though this process in 2 weeks, or who have to changes seamstress last minute... it all works out!

                Thanks for this :) I know everything will work out in the end, hopefully! I am just so busy this last week and next (as you are as well I'm sure!) that its hard to fit in another fitting, it better be perfect! Otherwise I sense a bridezilla moment coming! Haha

                  No worries Kal520, I only just picked mine up and I leave for Sunday ...I didn' even go for my first fitting until last week LOL...I was losing weight and didn't want to til the last minute... my seamstress said the same thing as ChocoTaco...it's over kill but they put those weeks in for buffers. ...My seamstress did my alterations in 2 days, it's all good and it will be beautiful :) When I picked mine up this morn it was perfect!! fit like a glove! ..after only one fitting/alteration :)  Your all good ;)

                   

                  I leave Sunday ladies...and I still haven't written the ceremony script, my speech,  picked my music, done seating tables/ or packed for my fiance and I. (kids are packed) ...freakin out a bit...tomorrow spa day all day and then all I have is Saturday and that's hair day...so really only 1/2 day to do everything!! LOL
