Am I crazy?

Try to go in early February instead of late February if you can. Since the university reading weeks are usually end of February the chances of last minute availability is a lot less (and price a lot higher, maybe not when booking in advance, but definitely when booking last minute)

I have been getting prices for early 2009 for a couple of months now - and your budget seems completely reasonable to me! Let me know if there is anything I can help you with!!!

Agreeing on a resort is the hardest thing you have to do. Don't get me wrong, the rest of the planning isn't all rainbows and sunshine. But the resort choice is just so stressful. I'm sure you could find a resort $2000 or under that's comparable to the one you have chosen. Keep an open mind when looking at resorts. Have you talked to a TA, maybe they can give you some suggestions. I think the suggestion to look into a resort complex like the Ruis or Gran Bahia, that has different priced rooms would be a really great compromise for you guys. Goodluck!

Lindsay... where did you get married? The TA we've been talking to has said to "read the reviews from people who are geographically closest to you" because (she says) they'll generally be on the same level of expectations (*generally*). So I'd love to hear your experience!

I would also suggest maybe try finding a resort close to PDC. That way, if someone finds it is too expensive, they can stay at another cheaper nearby resort. Also, explore the option of having an off resort wedding - there some great locations nearby that can do fabulous weddings. It can make choosing a resort much easier, if you don't also have to find a fun cheap resort that also has everything you want for a wedding!
But that being said - it can be done! I finally ended with El Dorado Royale, at $2100 (though that was in the first week of May).

MrsV- I never thought about that, so thanks for the idea. it may be do-able and still please people! (p.s.- you look beautiful in your pic. I can't wait to have wedding pics!)
