Hi! I feel actually quite awkward by doing this, but I'm not engaged yet. We have talked about it, picked out the ring, decided on our attendants, and decided on a destination wedding... but no ring. None the less, I have been keeping a scrapbook of sorts for ideas and when I stumbled upon this website, I found a lot of valuable information. The resort that we have in mind right now is the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal.

    As Tammy stated, I was a DW bride before I was "actually" engaged as well. I was planning for 2 months before it was official and I got my ring. So you are not alone. Please let us know if you have any questions.

            welcome, I am sure he will surprise you with the ring any day now, my FI did that to me, we had so much already decided and no ring on my finger...but finally he popped the question and here we are less than 5 months to go!!!

                Welcome!!! I was another one of the "pre-engaged" members. It is such a bonus to make decisions before you get a million people asking to help you plan!!!
