Just wanted to stick my head in and say hey before I start planning. I really had my heart set on Cabo Mexico and even set a date at Dreams, but since all of the violence out there my family has been really hesitant about even goingfrown.gif. FI and I have decided to change our location to Jamaica so here I am starting from scratch on planning. I have a long ways to go as we can't decide on Negril vs. Ochos Rios, Sandals vs. RIU....ugh!

Well we have a date of 5/8/10 so I hope we can keep that. Look forward to reading all of your reviews and planning on our big day.

Welcome!

 

I am sorry you have to switch resorts-but I am sure you will get alot of help here. I am getting married in Negril-so I probably not alot of help to you. But good luck with everything!

Hi Jenna, We were looking at Mexico, also; however, our niece and flower girl was not going to get to attend the wedding if we pursued Mexico. Our families were not excited to travel there either. We actually just cancelled all our local Indiana plans to go with a DW. It was what I have already wanted and I think my FI finally realized he couldn't just plan a wedding and reception locally "in an hour". ;-)

I am getting married in Sept 2009 so a little less than 6 months to plan. I would be happy to keep you posted and let you know what I learn as I go along. My plan is to let my TA do all the planning and just show up and have a wedding. I have heard great things about the Riu. We chose it because we do have children who will be attending. We would have looked into Sandals and other adult only resorts otherwise. Let me know how I can help. Talk soon!!

Happy Planning! I am in a similiar situation as my FI and I had been planning an at home wedding but recently squashed that idea and have choosen a DW. It was our original idea about a year ago but felt pressured to have an at home wedding by our families.
