      Okay it has taken me the better part of my morning to get caught up on just a portion of all these posts but I am SO glad that I found this site!

      I'm totally new here and don't actually have anything booked yet, but DPA is my #1 choice and we're looking at either January or April of 2010. I'm still nervous that I don't have a lot of time to organize everything but from the sounds of it, a lot of you have had really great experiences so I'm hoping your luck will run my way!

      Gina & Andrea - your pictures are beautiful!! Thank you so much for posting!

      If anyone has new or old ideas about gift ideas for the OOT bags, can you please post them? I picked up a few along the way but can definitely use some more!

      Also, for those of you that have been or already booked your wedding, did you contact the WC before booking your flights and packages, or did everything get done at the same time? I'm not entirely sure which order to start this in!

      Thank you!

        Oh yes and one more question. Part of our debate between January and April is the weather. I've been to Playa del Carmen in April before and was lucky to have a full week of sun, sun, sun but I've heard that it can also be more rainy than in January? On the flip side, what temperatures are considered "cool" that we'd be expecting in January? I don't really want to worry about packing evening clothes on top of everything else that I need to remember! Thanks again!

          Yay for another (potential) DPA bride! Welcome Meghan...I hope you choose DPA! In your first post you asked what package and how many guests we had. I did the Ultimate Package and had 30 guests.

          As far as OOT bags, there is a whole section dedicated to those. You can start here

          http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t28059

          For my wedding I contacted the WC first to see what wedding dates they had available. In order to "hold" your wedding date you have to put down a deposit (I think it's $500 USD) and book your flight and room. In my situation, DPA had June 18 available so we contacted our travel agent and booked our flight and room. After we booked we informed the WC of our info.

          I'm afraid that I can't answer your January or April question...but hopefully other ladies will be able to! I don't think you'll have a problem with weather in either month. I got married in June and the weather was great aside from 2 very very short (like 15 minute) periods of rain.

            Great thank you Gina!! I'm still trying to get familiar with how the forum works so I appreciate the link for the OOT gifts!!

            Since I'm waiting to get some price quotes right now, I'll email DPA to get an idea of what dates are available and hopefully all the details will come rolling in at the same time!

              Meghan,

              We went through our travel agent who contacted the WC and found out available dates within a couple of hours. It seems to be a lot easier to communicate through our travel agent. Also all my guests are going through our travel agent so I don't have to organize anyone.

              As for the time of year, I googled usual weather for those months. I don't remember Jan or April, sorry. I chose May because kids are in school so there will be less people at the resort.

                      Did most of you just go for a week long trip? I'm trying to juggle my dates with what works best for the marriage requirements in Mexico (arrival 4 business days ahead). Do the four witnesses also have to be there 4 business days ahead, or just any 4 days ahead - I was a little confused on that one.

                      Also, who did the legal marriage in Mexico vs. the civil/symbolic option? I'm just wondering if it would be less frustration dealing with all the translations and stuff.

                      And I'd love to read more reviews so hopefully the new posts work!
