It's good to know that I'm not the only one out there (& wonderful that I am just being "prepared" not crazy )
I am off to check out the reviews (which I am addicted to) & to try and scope out a potential venue.
The bf and I have talked about it and I think we would like some place AI so that we can make it affordable for our friends/families and kind of low key. I adored Mexico when we were there (Riviera Maya) - so if anyone can make any recommendations I would appreciate it!!

The BEST Bride-To-Be, in my honest opinion, FULLY realizes she can't plan everything...including the circumstantial events leading up to her proposal!
My would-be proposal was a mess: I, beyond anything of my control, was severely rear-ended/in a car accident, AND my only living grandparent (Dad's Mom) fell gravely ill during the SAME day my (now) fiance had planned to propose to me. "A moonlit walk on the Maryland Shore in the surf and moonlight" never happened the way he'd plannned...
LIFE came up and plans changed. He proposed to me, on bended knee, right in our living room! It was completely adorable and I never saw it coming! I was so wrapped up in the insurance people and my grandmother's health-status that, he simply stopped me where I stood 3 days after the accident. With the ring burning a hole in his pocket, and so much sincerity and love in his eyes, he asked me to "do him the honor of being his wife", and I couln't say anything else to the man I love but "YES!"
We are getting married at SGOR next Spring on May 14, 2010!
Things always work out in the end!.....
