    Hi Everyone! I'm Jacki and new to the forum. My fiance (and best friend) are planning to wed March 2008 in Mexico/Carribean. My first marriage was abusive and cause me to be gunshy about ever doing it again but Jim ( also had a bad marriage) was a true gem --loving & patient-- changed my heart! We are also truck drivers & cruise the US together. The only time off in 5 yrs has been the rare but quick trip to the house for holidays & mail checks so time off in Mexico sounds like heaven. I want to plan a DW that is romantic and as special as the love of this man has been to me. Any ideas are welcome as I am flustered with all the options. Hope to hear from you soon.

      Welcome Jacki! It sounds like you two are perfect together - a match made in heaven. Your past sounds awful ... but now you get to look forward to the future!

      Let us know more about what you're looking for, and maybe we can help narrow it down. Trust me, we all know what it's like to try to narrow down a location - it's soooo overwhelming at first! But I promise it will be easier with the help of all the girls here on this forum!

      Some things to think about ...

      1) do you want an all-inclusive?
      2) do you want to get married at a resort, or somewhere remote?
      3) does the resort have to be adults only? or family oriented?
      4) where will most of your guests be coming from?
      5) how big will the wedding be?
      6) do you wnat beach? gazebo? jungle? indoor?

      Hope this helps!

                Thanks guys--kinda new to this forum stuff--thinking about going with an all-inclusive resort beach wedding -- not alot of time to research non resort venues -- originally we wanted Belize but heard about pesky bugs "no-see-ums" and changed to Mexico. Maybe Barelo -- oh i dunno
                Marrying again and excited!
