    Hi ladies,

    I've been around for a couple months and have loved looking at all the fantastic wedding ideas you all provide.

    In the beginning, I was unsure I wanted a destination wedding. The reason I considered and eventually agreed to it was because the cost to have a wedding here would just be too great if we wanted to make sure everyone was included.

    I attended a wedding last weekend and while it was beautiful, I thought to myself ... I am SO glad I am not doing this!!!

    I think if I hadn't found this website, I'd still be feeling down about not getting married here in front of all our family and friends and would not have a clue about where to start in terms of planning.

    Now, with the help of all of you, I have a million ideas swirling around and so many things I want to do!!

    So, thank you, thank you, thank you to each and every one of you who have confirmed my (....our!) decision to have a DW, and especially to Tammy for running the show!

    Now, if I could just actually decide on the resort.......

    Angela :)

      Angela - I know exactly what you mean! Since our DW I have not felt that any of the traditional weddings that I have been to have been nearly as magical as ours was. Of course, I am 100% biased, but it is such a different vibe at a DW!

      Good Luck with picking your resort! Luckily you are starting your planning early enough that you can do plenty of research to narrow down your options.

      DH and I narrowed down to the country ... then resort town ... then to our top 5 resorts, and then picked our top two from that. It was a LONG process, but worth it!

      We ended up with our DW at the more affordable of the top two choices, and our HM at the more expensive. It was perfect!

          We have it narrowed down to Cabo and are trying to decide between the Riu Palace and Dreams. We have written down every pro and con of each, talked to each other and many others to get their take. The Riu seems to fit with our group better however, I love the way Dreams look and they seem to have less rules than the Riu. Just lately, I have been looking into other places so maybe our destination will change. Regardless, I need to know by the end of July because that is the absolute latest I want the STDs to go out.

          Thanks for your input! I'll post whenever we fiiiinnnnnalllly make a decision!
