    Hi all,

    My name is Kaki and my guy proposed to me in the middle of our kitchen 2 and a half weeks ago. It was SHOCKING (you can read about the whole thing here:The Crayfish Diaries: Rude News & Ill Thinking ) and I cried for a full 10 minutes (I obviously don't handle shock well). We've been together for a little over 2 years since meeting in Japan on a teaching ESL programme. I'm from Montreal, he's from Scotland and we live in the middle of England now. We figure we wouldn't make one family happy over another, so we're looking at getting married in Mexico next summer. I'm excited, apprehensive and thinking way too much. I love this forum and hope to get as much information from all of you to make a decision sooner rather than later.

      Hi and Welcome !!!
      My Name is Elisa and I too am a " Newbie " . Funny enough we seem to have a few things in common .
      My Fiancee and I got engaged in December and quickly realised that with my immediate family ( Mom, Pa , sister, granmother etc. ) living in Germany , as well as a huge chunk of my friends , and HIS family scattered everywhere from Florida to New York, Calagary and then right here in Toronto , that a Destination wedding would be our best choice . We choose Mexico as well !

      We are getting married October 9th 2008 at The Riu Palace Mexico , we'll spend just over a week with all our friends and family and then 10 days honeymooning at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya next door .

      So you and I have the European AND the Mexican connection ! Welcome and Congrats !!
