    Hello All,

    First the required stuff:
    1. Name = Anne aka "Annabelle"
    2. Wedding Date = Tentative. Late February / Early March 2010
    3. Wedding Location = Tentative. Jamaica or Mexico

    My fianc© and I got engaged Christmas Day 2008 and are planning a DW for next year. We will definitely be choosing somewhere in the Caribbean with economics and nice beaches as the main deciding points. Estimated guest count is 50-80 people… and no kids (teens are allowed though).

    I'll be 28 in two-weeks and my fianc© (Tim) is 29. We're both engineers and live in Tampa, FL. I'm originally from Florida, but Tim is from the Chicago-land area. His family is huge and almost all live in IL... mine is pretty small and spread all across the US. We decided on a DW that way everyone had to travel, plus we've both always wanted to get married on the beach. We'll be doing two post-wedding receptions "back home" (Tampa, FL & Bourbonnais, IL) for those who can't make it. I'm thinking house party BBQs to save on costs.

    As for our wedding style... we want a wedding that is simple and informal, yet elegant, and the reception should be more like a beach party (with plenty of refreshments) than a formal gathering. Neither of us care about the wedding cake... cupcakes work for me. :)

    I look forward reading all the great advice this site has to offer.

                    Congrats! Have you figured out where in Jamaica? I'm curious as to how soon someone needs to book during the high season to get the date/time/location they want.
