So the bad news first. Today was the "RSVP by" date on my reply cards, and we are missing a whopping 27 replies! Crazy, and while I expect to receive a few the next day or two, I think we will have to make at least 20 calls.

The good news.... WE BOOKED A HONEYMOON! Our wedding is in 38 days, so I guess we procrastinated, but we got a great rate! We will be staying at the Riu Palace in Cancun, 6 nights and we spent $2060. We were going to book online through Expedia but decided to call just in case they would offer us a special, and they are giving us a free upgrading on our room, plus $100 off the package. Couldn''t be happier, I had to share!

Fantastic news about your honeymoon! Yay!!

to those who have not RSVP''d, however, at least you have received the bulk of them. Hopefully the procrastinating RSVP''s will come in in the next day or two and you''ll have to make less calls.

Everything is coming together!

This is my favorite type of good news/bad news--when the good news is way better than the bad news! Congrats!

OMG CONGRATS! The Rui Palace in Cancun is were FI and I got engaged! we LOVED IT and so will you! its SO beautiful.
awesome restaurants there, and you are literally right on the strip - we walked across the street and to town almost every day.
it was SO MUCH FUN! there is so much to do there. Just remember to take the city buses if you are going anywhere far, never a cab, they will rip you off.
one place we discovered and loved was Chocolate City, its in a mall i think, awesome place to eat where you can get a bucket of beer brought right to your table - and then you can get all you can eat sushi and all kinds of other stuff. SO GREAT
ask me any questions you have!

Yeah, people suck. Some people RSVP yes, and don''t show, others force you to call and say, well you KNEW I wouldnt miss it... obviously not. Oh well... hopefully they are all on FHs side so that he has to do all the calls


AWESOME ABOUT THE HONEYMOON! Cancun is awesome, you''ll have a great time!

Sparkalicious: Thanks! I really hope a lot come in today because we plan to start calling people today and tomorrow.

Katamari: I like getting the bad news first, because the good news always makes things so much better!

Iloveprincesscuts: We are so excited to hear people rave about the Riu Palace! You hear a few bad reviews and you start to worry! Thanks for the advice about Cancun, we will be sure to check out Chocolate City. FI and I could eat sushi and drink beer til we bust!

Meresal: Thank you! I''ve heard most people are pretty good about RSVPing, I think I am one of the more extreme cases. Most people I''ve talked to only had hunt down a few. Besides, it gets kinda exciting waiting for the mail everyday! Good luck!

tlh: I think the missing RSVPs are about 50/50, but I will make my mom do most of our calls
I am preparing myself for how to handle those who RSVP coming, and then don''t show
I can be pretty spiteful

OMG if you like sushi then you''ll love the place! and they have all types of other food too, FI was happy with the bucket o beer! hehehhehe
its crazy in there too, all the walls are huge huge flat screen tv''s - like they take up the whole wall.
and you can take the bus there, walk across the street to wear the buses are going to the left and get on one, when the door open just ask the driver, chocolate city? and if he says yes, lets get on, its SOOO FUN!

you will love it. there is also a japanese restaurant at the hotel where you can make reserrvations and eat at for free, they have a sushi appetizer but you dont get much : (
but it is YUMMY THOUGH!

Woo for good news! Sounds like a great deal.

Boo for the bad news. I hope you have a lot of cell minutes this month or a good long distance calling plan. Sorry to hear you are still missing a bunch of RSVP cards.
