    I actually just got back from my wedding, but I ran out of time to post this thread before I left. I found BDW after selecting my wedding site (Playa Fiesta in Puerto Vallarta), but I know it would have made my life a million time easier if I would have found BDW earlier in the process. This site gave me so many wonderful ideas about how to make my wedding special. I am so grateful to everyone for sharing their ideas, templates, support, etc. I'd like to return the favor and post my planning thread. Here it goes!
