      Yay Nikki!  Congratulations! We are wedding weekend twins, as I will be getting married the day before you.  (We have the same goals as well---I will be so glad to get the deposits over and done with so I can do the fun stuff!)

            What type of challenge are you doing? Maybe we can all do it!!! I started insanity last week and its hard but I'm already noticing a difference in my clothes. But I think it's a given that wedding stress equals pounds lost!

We also get a free room for each 6 rooms booked, I believe ( I think that may be thru the resort, not Apple) We only had to put a deposit down on our room. Guests book and put their own deposit down and have until Sept. 1, 2014 to make payments. I didn't want to put out the money for guest rooms....I figure that if they really want to go they have a year to make payments!

                  OK, coll, thanks for the info. I'm in touch with a TA and see what kind of rates she can request.... I;ll out on our website that they can use her or book on their own too,

Total savings, $147......I think that was a smart choice. Also, as of today we officially saved enough to pay for the ceremony, and my dress has been paid for already. Now to work on saving for the OOT bags, extras, rings, and honeymoon LOL Although we do have half the honeymoon paid off too

I was going back and forth on this because  I could not find enough pics on it but I finally found the perfect thread on it and I am convinced!!!! Now on to finding a not too big All inclusive resort for our guests... something where we will not get lost, LOL and its family friendly ( and of course not too expensive) any suggestions???

                      When I went to Playa Del Carmen last year we stayed at the Riu Palace and had access to all of the Riu's in Playa Del Carmen, there are 6 in Playa Car and they range in price and size but are for the most part walking distance to each other, except one which is on the golf course. The Riu Palaces (there are 2) are nicer than the other one's and not too big (in my opinion). I consider the whole Riu chain family friendly and budget friendly.  If you're looking for something closer to 5th ave in downtown let me know. These are in the playa car section of Playa.
