    Hi

    I am a fellow 2011 bride! We are planning a May 28, 2011 wedding at Riu Ocho Rios. I really haven't made any plans yet. I have contacted the resort and they said I can't do anything until March of 2010, so I still have time. I actually broke my shoulder and had surgery about a month and a half ago so I have only recently even began to think about plans.

    Time goes by very fast, so it seems far, but our weddings will be here soon enough.
    Good luck planning,
    Shannon

      Crystal1880, Yes, I'm sending out my save-the-dates in early December. I'm doing this because it's before the holidays and before Income Tax season. Even though we still have another holiday and income tax season before our wedding, this will give our guests the chance to save even more. Invitations will be going out next November which will be six months before our wedding so that'll be another reminder before the holiday and income season of 10/11. I hope this helps!

        I'm debating on even not sending save the dates and just going by WOM. That may sound tacky, but I have a strong idea of which people will come and which people won't. But I love the idea of Save the Dates. I am debating, now, starting a list of select people to send them to. Don't want to invite everyone and their momma's to a DW, it would make it less intimate. That's what the at home reception is for, right?

          Hi Ladies! I don't have a resort or date picked yet but I do know it will be a 2011 wedding. I'm thinking sometime between Feb -April and mexico (riveria maya??) or DR (punta cana?). Theres so much info in this forum and i've read some wedding reviews...but i'm feeling overwhelmed right now and I'm just bad at making decisions. lol. Good luck to everyone and happy planning!

            i have bought my dress, ordered it 2 weeks ago. you know what they say, as soon as you find the one, GET IT lol but thats about as far as i am at this point.
            just reading everyones planing on here. getting to know things i would never have thought about OOT's ect.
            One thing i do have my mind set on is gettig my guests a mini bubby mug. you can find them @ canadian tire. my FI and i went away last yr and used them. best thing i was ever told to bring.

              i was thinking the same thing. only because we have so little ppl coming. about 30 ppl if everyone says ok.
              saves on cost as well

                I just bought mine this weekend! Went by a store with mom just to see what they had, wasn't planning on getting one until 6-9 months from now. But one of them was it, I just knew it. :o)

                I'm probably going to have 20-30 people come as well. If that. Doesn't matter, as long as my parents and FI are there I will be happy as a clam! Saving money sounds great to me.

                  have any of you spoke to a travel agent at this point? if so what have they said about pricing and booking? travel agent i went to came back with a price of 1500 before tax per person, which is a lot compared to what i paid last yr. she said to check back in jan. but my fi an i wanted to get invites out right around then.
                  how soon did u put ur invites out?

                    I did speak with a local TA and she said reservations can be made about 10 months in advance. So it looks like I have until June or July before I can actually DO anything as far as the trip itself goes. I may need that long to choose a resort though, haha.

                    As far as prices, she gave me about the same but for just 5 days. I've been doing my own research and just getting April 2010 prices to guess about April 2011 (cheapcaribbean.com, bookit.com, expedia.com, etc). Nothing else I can really go off of. We are at a stand still.

                      Hi ladies! I'm a 2011 bride, May 6, 2011 to be exact in the Riviera Maya. We're now thinking Dreams Tulum for our locations. We literally don't have time to get married in 2010 because I don't have any breaks from school (i'm working on my master's) and we're taking 2 weeks to go to Thailand for my best friends wedding, so there goes Fi's 2 week vacation! I figure having it in 2011 gives me plenty of time and this way I can have it all planned 6 months before so I can study and get my license and start my practice without worrying about wedding details, that's the plan anyway. I've booked my photographer, had the wedding colors picked and flowers way before we were engaged. I'm also doing passport STD's and boarding pass invites. We originally were planning on 20-25 now we're looking closer to 60 guests!! I'm planning on sending my STD's out in April and my invites in September with an RSVP date on November 1, 2010.

                      Ok that was a little more lengthy than I thought it would be. Glad to see this thread I didn't think there were others planning this far out!
                      Veronica & Adam - May 6, 2011 - Dreams Tulum
