so excited to be here

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all! I am Morgan :)

 

I have to be honest... no ring yet... but I couldn't wait another day to join. I have been reading posts on here for a while so I feel as though I'm already acquainted with many of you. I tried to resist and wait to join after the official engagement so that my first ever post could be "hooray, I'm engaged! I'm so glad to join the BDW club" but heck, why waste another day that I could be getting all of your valuable information and advice! Just so you know though, I found out this week he bought a plane ticket to visit my parents in two weeks (presumably to have "the talk" with my dad) so I'm not one of those full of false hope wanna be brides, hehe.

 

We have had many talks before about where we want our wedding and all we know is the beach! I need help with locations. I know there are a lot of Cabo brides on here and elsewhere so please know I welcome any and all suggestions. I honestly would love to do Cabo but we are both really into the beach and the ocean (it is where we feel relaxed, rejuvinated, close to God, where we are reminded as we look out into the infinite distance that this world is so much bigger than us) so we want to be able to swim and play and I've heard there is only one Cabo resort that allows getting into the water. I've also looked into Jamaica and Bahamas, would love Hawaii but assume it is more expensive but am open to St. Lucia, PV, and all the others pretty much. My only thing is that I'm pretty certain I want it to be AI and as reasonable as possible for my guests price wise.

 

As far as the date goes, we picked out May 24, 2008 a while back for sentimental reasons, but it is also Memorial Day weekend so I initially thought that would be perfect for guests coming since they will have that Monday off of work. Now I worry that means it will be more expensive for everyone and more crowded at the resorts. Another day I really like is August 2, 2008 because it is 08/02/2008.

 

Well that's quite a long introduction but I love to write (was an English/Comm Major!) so you'll probably hear a lot from me.

 

Looking forward to all that lies ahead...

Morgan

Welcome Morgan. we have a few soon to be brides on here so your not alone. Cabo actually has more then one resort located on the beach you can swim in. Actually there are several, but with that said their are so many great locations for a seaside wedding that you really can't go wrong.

 

We are staying at a resort in cabo on the part of the beach you can swim in but we are having our wedding at a different resort because it's not as busy.

Welcome! I started planning/researching before we were engaged too! (Not that it helped me much as we're STILL not 100% decided!) We were in the same boat - wanted AI, the beach and a resonalbe price for our guests. We origionally wanted to go to the Dominican Republic as it has AMAZING water/beach and the resorts are reasonable. After further thought we decided we wanted to go back to Mexico because we know we love it there, and our first vacation together was to Puerto Vallarta. So now we're trying to get a date and a location set! It's so exciting!

 

Anyway, good luck researching. Let us know how we can help you!!

Holy crap... you're like the research queen! lol. That was the best intro I've ever read!! And it's true, we've got plenty of ladies on here that aren't engaged yet. As for the location... umm ya, ask Tara (the girl who posted above here - tvt) She pretty much looked at every location on the planet, lol - she knows her resorts!!! But seriously, if there is something that you're having trouble with, we're more than willing to help -we love finding new information! wink.gif

 

P.S. - May 2008 is the best time to get married EVER! I vote for that date! lol :)

Welcome to the forum Morgan! I love your thorough introduction and could feel your excitement come through as well as the flying thoughts for planning. Good stuff.:-)

 

I'm still finding out more each day as I go and learning lots about what to make sure we cover in our planning process so this has definitely been the best thing I could have stumbled over in our early planning stages. Good luck and have fun!

Hi Morgan! Welcome to the forum - we're glad to have you here!!! I'm right there with you, wanting the beach/ocean/island - that's why we chose Jamaica! rolleyes.gif

Oh, one other thing...both May & August are low tourism times in Jamaica, so rates will be lower than Jan/Feb/March and Oct/Nov/Dec. BUT Aug is Hurricane Season - so just be careful!!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
