      good thing is that you have pleanty of time AND you have found the BEST FORUM of girls to help with all your questions! DOUBLE WIN! Take some time to look around the site and see some of the different Mexico destinations. I would try not to focus on details at this point (like dress, colors, favors, etc.) just try to get an idea of what city you want to have your wedding in first - the rest of the details will follow shortly after you have that pinpointed! oh and WELCOME!

        Hey Sharon!! Welcome to the forum. :) I am trying to settle on a location too, its really tough. I'd follow exactly what Sarah said, just do a search on your points of interest... 9 times out of 10 its already been discussed. If not, these people know EVERYTHING (it's almost scary how much they know!), so you'll get an answer one way or another!

        welcome Sharon.
        what type of place are you looking for...this will help you narrow your choices.
        All Inclusive?
        Children allowed?
        Does it matter if its on a weekend day or weekday?

          Welcome Sharon! Like Christine said, it helps if you know a few things before you start looking at resorts. Do you want AI, children, swimable beach, large/small, beach wedding/gazebo wedding/garden wedding. If you make a list of these things that you want, narrowing down a destination will be a lot easier! Happy planning!

          You've come to the right forum Sharon. Welcome!! I can't remember when i got involved in this process of deciding time, where, date etc ... but I think I started looking at weather and peoples schedules (kids in school, holidays etc). I tried to cater to peoples needs but not too much. Do you know how many guests you're looking at? Big or small wedding?
