I got engaged on October 25, 2008 and my wedding date is set for April 24, 2010. I have been planning and researching almost everyday since December.
I have actually already booked my wedding at Dreams Tulum and have been speaking with various travel agents for rates. Tammy (the one who started this site) has been great and gave me very reasonable prices on the hotel. I suggest emailing her for any info, she may be able to get you rates at the hotel you have choosen. The only thing i have yet to get any price on is the airfare and airport/hotel transfers. Hopefully I will get some figures around May.
I already order my stds, which should actually be arriving tomorrow!! I'm super excited to see them! I would like to send them out asap but i need to put some final touches on my guest list.
Other than that, I've just been searching the web for ideas about the cake, bouquets, centerpieces and dresses of course.
Happy planning everyone!! And try not to stress out too much, we have at least a whole year to plan. Enjoy your engagement!

Jerzygirl- you mentioned contacting Tammy, is she a travel agent?

I wouldn't fret on the packages thing - like BillysBride says just check out the 2009 rates and anticipate a mark-up from there, that's what I'm doing too.
We're planning to get married in early 2010 but I am taking into consideration Spring Break and Easter, Mexican holidays, and hurricane season, AND since we're one of those couples who has to pay for this whole thing on their own, it's still up in the air. We're shooting for Feb. 2010 or latest, April 2010. We aren't going the resort route. I read a lot of good things about boutique hotels via Tripadvisor and think it'd be nice to stay at a smaller, more intimate place.
Happy Planning to all and looking forward to getting to know you!

I chose OGX for its wedding gazebo that over looks the ocean. they have a man-made beach which i am fine with since i enjoy pools more and i love their pools. plus with their beach there are no hard waves coming in so you can snorkel there no problem. I heard from trip adviser there are always tons of fish swimming there. Also the price is not too much for our guests.

I'm starting over again as well. I was set on Oct 17th '09 at the Barcelo Palace but it wasn't working very well for family and friends. So now I'm hoping for May 22, 2010 at the Barcelo Palace. Just waiting to hear back from the resort so I can confirm the date. I know travel will be more expensive as we had great rates for October, but it was more important to have our loved ones there....Any other Barcelo brides out there been able to confirm their dates yet? Thanks
