Another thing that I am wondering, especially with all of your great suggestions. Is when to send out the invitations? I want to give everyone as much notice as possible (we have told all our family and close friends).. But I was thinking about sending out a "save the date" card so that people can have the official date (when we decide it next week when were are in Caletas) so they can book their holidays or whatever they need to do. Then add a little note making hotel suggestions so they can pre book if they want to (we are okay with everyone staying at different hotels and we have been there several times so we would like to make suggestions of good hotels on the beach downtown). Then when it gets a little closer to the date we would send out the official invitations.
Just wondering what you all did or are doing?

We are also trying to plan a trip down to visit Las Caletas the week of March 24th on a last minute vacation package (thanks to your wonderful suggestion we checked out some great websites - Thank you!). I really want to get down there and visist, and I REALLY, REALLY need to escape the never-ending Toronto winter. More snow tonight! Again! I should know by the end of today if I can get the time off work so my fingers are crossed so hard right now it's hard to type!
Even though most of our family and friends know, we are planning to send out Save the Date notices just as soon as we have the week of the wedding and the hotel block confirmed (although guests can make other hotel arrangements if they prefer we're going to arrange a group rate at the hotel we're staying at). We figure they have the general information but trying to keep everyone up on the details would be hard so we want to include on the STDs the address for the as-yet-to-be-created wedding website. That way the guests are able to access the detailed information about the travel agent, hotels options, passport application info, information about PV and LC, planned activities, etc.
I don't know that a STD is necessary to share this information but I do think it's important to let guests know (in some manner) far in advance about the details of the wedding so they can arrange for time off or childcare and so that they can inquire about the the cost of attending the wedding so they know what to be budgeting and can decide if it's even feasible for them to attend. Invitations -- going to figure out how far in advance to send those once I know when I have to confirm with various PV vendors with regard to final head count, but likely not until at most 6 months before....

I also have a wedding website where I listed information for people as well. I'm not sure how useful this has been for anyone because I didn't have too many visit counts, but now it's become a new place for everyone to rip on each other. Our comments section now looks like a myspace page. haha our guests are crazy. Feel free to check it out here: rachelandsteve2008.com

On the wedding website we had hotel info, PV info, events info, our registry, photos, lots of stuff... it's still up if you want to check it.

Rachel, I see that your wedding is fast approaching. You must be getting soooo excited!!! I'm excited for you
I have a question on tipping. I tried searching several times for tipping and LC and I searched this thread as well and can't seem to find it. I know there was some discussion before on tipping. Can someone just post the link so we don't have to rehash everything? I know tips are included for the wait staff, however I want to tip Nicole and the minister seperately. I'm not sure though what the appropriate amount would be though? Would someone be willing to post or PM me what they tipped?
Despite the cost, I decided to book the hairstylist since my hair is curly and can get really frizzy due to humidity. I know Ann really liked her hair and the pics are awesome. Did any other LC brides use the stylist at Loccoco and what was your experience? Do you have any pics?
