Barcelo Maya Palace? What do you think?
Do I have to send out save the dates? (I'm paying for everyone's trip because I feel bad to make people spend money that financilly can't afford it, all wedding party and parents) Except one couple.
Is it tacky to just have a cocktail hour and desert at my house for my AHR?
Is it a good idea to get "legally" married at home?
Do I need to send out invitations? ( I know all the people are going because I'm paying)
Should I register for gifts if I'm just having a cocktail hour?
Neither my MOH's or my FI's BM live near us, is it tacky for us to do the shower, bach. parties all wrapped up in one party to make it easier for them?
Is it wrong to want someone there to watch our daughter (3yr) the day of wedding and during prep?
Should I book the wedding party at the same resort? Or one of the cheaper sister resorts to help us with budget? I don't want everyone to be too spreadout, anyone done this at the Barcelo?

Here are some answers to your ?
As far as STD and invitations you don't have to send them out at all! Totally up to you and since you are paying for the guests anyways you already have you rsvp/
Not tacky at all to have a cocktail AHR, I am having a very informal BBQ when we get home.
Some resorts require a certain number of the guests to be staying at the resort so check with the resort.
No it is not wrong to have someone watch your daughter the day of the wedding you need some alone time
Not necessary to get legally married at home.
Register for gifts only if you want to.
Basically anything goes you can be as traditional or nontraditional as you want with a destination wedding!

We have booked Beaches in Turks & Caicos for our wedding in May 2011. Very excited!
So far we have booked our resort, blocked out a section of rooms, sent out our invitations and I have gotten oot bags and everything to go inside except for the hangover kit items (since some of the otc meds will expire before then!).
I haven't found a dress yet and my FI hasn't decided what he's wearing either. He'd REALLY like to wear shorts and a linen short, so I'm thinking of getting a short or tea length dress.... this is a 2nd wedding for both of us, so we aren't concerned about the formality so much.
I look forward to reading all the posts from fellow 2011 brides!

Save the Dates Mailed!
Dress bought! ETA July (Mori Lee 2189)
Ceremony Date & Location Confirmed! February 26, 2011 ~ 4pm @ Riu Palace Punta Cana
Flights and Hotel Booked! Group rate for Bride/Groom + 8 guests and counting
OOT bags ordered! I love Vistaprint
I am starting to work on the goodies for the OOT bags. So far, I have 2011 calendar magnets, oversized postcard welcome letters, mailing postcards (only 1 design so far), & pens.. I'm still looking for first aid kits & larger items (beach towel/travel mugs/etc). I think I should wait to see the actual size of the bags first!

My friends think I am nuts to start planning so far ahead but I am a planner! So where are you all getting married at?
I am looking at Riviera Maya but need a kid friendly resort as I have a 7 year old sister and cousins. Any suggestions? I love the Grand Palladium but I think it might not be very cost effective for our guests!
Also what else should I be doing this far ahead?
