Getting The Groom Motivated

This gem ($12 - amazon.com)my friends, is a Godsend. A friend of ours gave it to Fiancé Saturday night at a party. Last night, after working on the Save the Dates (they're half way done!!! mission ready to be addressed before 12/20 is on a roll!!) Fiancé busted it out while I was still making envelope liners, and was smitten with the book.

It essentially fills the groom in on his role and clarifies the role of the bride along with a time line in layman's terms, and a who's who of who's paying for what.

If you gals want to get your groom something for the holidays, this book would make an excellent stocking stuffer or even just a "here you go honey" gift just to get the hint across. Whereas I have a shelf full of books that have been given to me since we got engaged, this is the only one he needs, and then when he's done, he'll pass it on to the next man getting hitched.

What books are on your bridal planning book shelf?? Any that you consider a must have?

I had the DIY Bride and a couple others of the like... but I ended up using the internet and blogs for most of my inspiration and information!

And Cabo was beautiful!! It would be totally different from the Northeast - they describe it as "Where the Desert meets the Sea". We stayed at the RIU Santa Fe, which was all-inclusive and well priced. It's right next to the RIU Palace, which I also heard good things about. They were both very nice, the grounds and everything were very clean, and the people were all very friendly. They were about a $10 cab ride to the marina and downtown Cabo if you wanted to go out.
The one thing to know is that their beaches are not swimming beaches. Because of the currents, there are only a few beaches down there that you can swim at, so if that's important to you two you may want to make sure to ask about that. Medano Beach in downtown is a public swimming beach, as is Lover's Beach.
The plane ride down wasn't too bad for us. Out of DFW, it was about a 2.5-3 hour plane ride, so for you guys, you're probably looking at around 6 hours. And the cost of the ticket wasn't bad at all.

A good website to do travel research is tripadvisor.com. They have reviews from real people as well as tons of pictures, and you can search for a destination, or for a particular hotel.
Hope this helps!
