    Hey Everyone! We're getting married at the RIU Palace Los Cabos next year in February. We've sent out our Save the Dates today...I made a postcard on Zazzle to go with the destination wedding theme.

        I have my work cut out for me now, I have to get my address list together! All of my people will be easy, but FI's people to invite... I have to squeeze some addresses out of future MIL.
        Aww, I love those! That's great that you got such a cheap price even after uploading your own photos in there!

        ichimiyuki - I saw your STDs in another thread and they are so cool!

        Clearly I'm on a save the date kick right now!

          Wait, sorry! ichimiyuki I got you confused with someone else. I'm sure your save the dates are great, but it was someone else's I saw. I'm such a blonde

            I see all you girls getting so much done and knowing your dates and everything and I think whats driving me most crazy right now is I contacted the WC from the resort we want to book and she said they wont start booking dates until the end of March! I really wanna get my STD's in the mail and really start planning things but I feel like until I know the date for sure I don't want to get ahead of myself. I think I'm just getting concerned because I'm looking for Jan 2011 and I see all you girls with your dates for up to May and June. I'm sure I'm worrying for nothing but theres only 10 months to go and I really haven't started doing anything!!!

            PS: Tifuhhknee those are the cuetest std's! and I know what you mean about getting addresses from the FI's side. I have all the addresses for my family and maybe 2 for his. lol.

              My wedding is also in January 2011. I have sent my deposit to the resort to hold the wedding date, I did send my STD/invites already, and bought my dress this week. But, the resort prices still aren't out for January 2011, so no one is able to book still, which is driving me crazy. But as for the actual wedding planning and details, I haven't gotten anywhere either!! But it will all come together, I just say, I just want confirmation that I can show up on this date with 30 guests and they will have a wedding set up for me!

              I'm not difficult! :)

                Hi Girls,
                We finally were able to sign our contract with Cabo del Sol! It took 5 months and 3 wedding coordinators to get to this point! After the first wedding coordinator left Cabo del Sol I began to stress and moved the wedding to Playa Fiesta in PV, then moved it back to Cabo...then that wedding coordinator quit, I freaked, and we moved the wedding to Islamorada Key. Once we had nearly everything figured out in Islamorada the third wedding coordinator at Cabo del Sol started and contacted me. She knew EVERYTHING about my original wedding plans and our original site visit and completely put me at ease. So, we got our dream wedding location afterall! I know this is all stressful ladies, but it will all work out in the end!
                We also just sent in the deposit for our photographer, Juan Carlos Tapia! I'm so excited to finally have a REAL date and a REAL location - June 10, 2011!

                  I totally agree with you FurutreMrsYak about just being able to show up and not being difficult. Even my bridal party is starting to say I'm too laid back and easy going and need to be a bit more demanding lol. But this is totally why I chose to have a DW, to have a fun relaxing easy going time with those who mean the most to us!

                  Yaaay Donie Jordan!!! That must have been so stressful on top of all the rest of the regualr wedding stress. Congrats on getting it all figured out!!

                    Yay, congrats to all the new brides on here! I still wish it were closer because I do feel like I'm stuck at a stand still. I guess I could hire a photographer though. It will make me feel like I got something else done.

                    And thanks on the "std" complements, I still laugh every time I read that. Oh and good news, I'm going to be a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding the day after Thanksgiving this year. For their honeymoon, they are coming to our wedding! Yay.
