This is a fantastic post to which I am adding.
My bf and I are still at square one. We have gone ring shopping, but he has yet to drop the question. (On a side note: I LOVE the Jewelrymart/Giftcenter in San Francisco.) I know he's waiting for the right moment.
Despite not having the ring, we're still moving forward with our plans. We have narrowed down to a September/October 2009 time frame.
In February 2008, we spent a week in Cancun and fell in love with the area. We returned to Mexico earlier this month. This time, however, we stayed in Playa del Carmen. We searched some sites out, but we're still doing our homework.
As for the October rain, it was really hit or miss. We wore shorts/summer clothes day and night. If it rained, the longest it lasted was maybe 15 minutes. It wasn't enough to deter me away from my quest to find a location! Plus, we both returned home with fantastic tans!
As for prepping for the wedding, here's what we've done so far:
set up the Adobe InDesign files for save the dates
set up the Adobe InDesign files for invitations, rsvp, etc.
set the guest list
alerted our guest list of the upcoming plans
Things we have yet to do:
1. Get engaged!
2. Settle on a location and set a date...
