    Having more time just means you will probably stress about more. 6 months is plenty of time especially with all the help and information on this forum. Plus you will have to be more decisive which is such a problem for me but I had time.

    I am getting married in Cancun and I went on two site visits. If there is anything that I can help you with, please let me know. You can do it!!

      We got engaged in February and are getting married in Sept. I don't even have my invites out yet. Most everyone already knows to be saving money. From what I hear it is totally doable. Just pick a resort and your date as soon as you can. After that time is on your side. You just don't want to not get your date. I am getting married September 7th and all I have done is my deposit paid at the resort.

        My daughter got engaged in December and is getting married in May. The planning didn"t even start until mid-January. The hardest part is choosing a location. You can do it, especially with the help from the forum!

          We were engaged in early Oct. 2006 and got married June 8th 2007, so just over 6 months. and if you throw in the holidays, and the fact that we were both working 70-80 hours, on the road, and we didn't even decideon a location until sometime in Nov ... I think you'll be fine! does that help? lol

            6 months is well enough time to do everything. I'm not getting married until May 2009 and its driving me mad lol

                Although I can't tell you it went great, because it is next week. I can say, yes we planned our wedding in about 6 months.
                We got engaged in Puerto Vallarta in August and couldn't decide on a destination until almost October.
                Now getting married at EDR with about 14 guests and all planning was done in about 6 months.
                It is amazing what you can do when you are forced to :)

                  We got engaged on Valentine's Day and are getting married on October 4. That's just over 7 months. We had all of the major details (WC, ceremony location, officiant, reception, my dress) booked within the first month. Now it's just the details, and I can't imagine having more than 6 months to worry about that stuff. I'd go crazy! Our thinking was actually that the less time we took to plan the wedding, the less opportunity there would be to stress over it. For a detail oriented person like me, that's a good thing! I think that a DW in 5-6 months is more than do-able.

                    I planned the whole thing in 4 months (engaged end of November), and booked only 2.5 months before the wedding (early January)!!! And it was amazing, I still had lots of time to focus on lots of little details, you can see my review in the Mayan Riviera forum

                      Bebe I'm glad you are feeling better. This post made me feel better too! I thought I was the only impatient one! lol.

                      We got engaged at the end of January this year and our ceremony is the end of July. We booked the hotel (which books so many other things with it, WC, officiant, reception location, photog etc) and bought my dress within the first 3-4 weeks and now it is just down to decision making with things like hotel photog or outside photog, flowers, reception details etc. Invites haven't gone out yet but everyone knows about it anyways. So far we have 12 booked and hoping for a few more. A few friends have said that if they had more time they could come, but I think that if you gave them more time they would have other reasons why they couldn't, or different people couldn't go.

                      To sum up, go with what you want!! And enjoy :)
