    We're hoping to sign our contract with cabo del sol in Feb. and we'll send out the save the dates as soon as that is confirmed for June 2011. We're doing passport save the dates that are being designed by "serendipity beyond design" so the save the dates will be full of info to allow our guests to know exactly what to save and when to start booking. I figure the sooner they are out the better.

      I am so wishy washy! My favorites this week are Sandos Playacar (love the wedding setup and aisle), Dreams Puerto Aventuras (really want on-site snorkling), and Iberostar Tucan (all the critters everywhere are too cool)!!

      As for dresses, I actually bought mine in October! I was only engaged 2 whole months before. My mom and I went into a store next to where we were just to try on dresses and play. It fit perfectly and I couldn't leave it in the store! So now I have to put it on monthly to regulate my eating habits LOL! So far so good.

Love love love it! I'm probably the only person to have a wedding dress for a wedding that is still a year and a half away! lol
        Don't worry, you aren't!! I did the exact same thing. And my dress actually came out at about $450 with taxes and all.

          Hey Ladies! I am glad to find this thread. Sometimes I feel like I am a bit crazy to be planning things so far out but I am glad to find that I am not the only one! I finally have the location decided but don't have anything booked yet so dates could still change. I have just started talking with TA Lindsay from the forum too and am so happy to get advice from someone who has done this themselves!

          It is hard to be patient but I am happy to find all of you to wait with!

            I really really really want to go dress shopping, but I'm afraid if I do I'll fall in love with a dress and buy it. Then I'm even more afraid I'll fall out of love with that dress by the time the wedding comes around because it won't be "new" anymore.

              Me too!!! I have fallen in and out of love with several different resorts already so I don't want to have my dress too long so that I start second guessing it too!

                We too have fallen in and out of love with resorts. It's so hard!! And we get so influenced by the latest reviews on trip advisor... even though we know not to base everything on that. At least so far we are only wavering between two resorts, not more. Have you made a final decision for your resort?

                  I was not expecting to buy a dress for about another 6 months from now. Never was the girly girl and didn't think I'd find "THE dress" like everyone says. Who knew? I was so wrong. You'll end up finding the one you don't want to take off after you decide to start looking. Since I did that already, I'm not allowing myself to go to another dress shop or look at dresses online unless it is the "show us your dress" post on this forum! LOL.

                    They all sound so great and you read great reviews and then you hear one negative and you start to question your choice!! I have decided on Puerto Vallarta with an off resort wedding so I feel way easier about making a resort decision knowing I am not depending on them for the wedding to run smoothly. We are thinking Dreams Puerto Vallarta though to stay at as they seem to have the best beach around there. What two are you conisdering?

                      2011 Bride here - Moon Palace, Cancun! I was planning to send out save the dates as soon as we were able to book the wedding. Even though they told us months ago that the contracts wouldn't be ready until Jan 2010, they emailed it to us last week. We've secured with a deposit, so now that I have a confirmed date, we will send out STDs in Jan 2010. We will also include the wedding website link (I've been building the site for months now and there's TONS of info on it), and our TA's info. I'm loving the passport STDs but as a newbie, I can't download any templates yet. =(
                      Any suggestions, ladies?
