welcome kerbear.. can't wait to hear all about your cruise wedding planning! are you getting married when the boat is in the middle of the water? that is so cool!!
tara, that's an awesome bag find! what a deal! we found decks of cards with travel pictures on them and in plastic cases at michael's for $1 a piece.. thank goodness for deals like these!! sounds like your guests will be taken care of at such a quaint, family-owned place. probably no negotiating for prices or anything like that!

I am getting married on April 24th, 2010 at the Iberostar in Playa Del Carmen. I have sent out my save the dates and did passports. I am doing boarding passes for my invitations. We have invited 80 people to the wedding. I have my dress, shoes, OOT bags, Greg's clothes, itinerary books, bridesmaids, and groomsmen all done. I am handmaking photo albums for my bridesmaids. I have known all of them since before grade school so this should be fun. I look forward to learning from you ladies.

We started planning earlier because we wanted everyone to be able to take time off of work and plan any vacations around it or with it. Plus it also helped reserve lower prices on the cruise (if prices drop we can get the reduced prices, but if they go up and no one has booked then people will just have to pay more). I am not sure if these same things happen with hotels or resorts, but cruise prices seem to go up and down.
Currently I am just finding all the DIY things to do on this site, although I do need to become more active to be able to see some templates. I have a ton of time right now and not really anything to stress about. So I am hoping to become ahead of the game because I am thinking when it gets closer I may have other things to be arranging (like bus transportation, the at home "pre-party", and people asking me questions...I have found people don't like to talk to the travel agent, haha).
Jerseykitten and ebredhawk, I really like your monogram. Did you design that or have someone design it for you. That is hopefully my next step. Well before that I guess I have to pick definite colors, but hopefully that will be done soon as well. I was looking around these forums and saw places where people did them on their own and where they used a website to get designs. So I was just wondering what you guys did.
I will definitely keep you guys posted about any new cruise planning to consider.

Kerbear- You already have 20 people booked? Good for you! I just sent my STDs, still waiting for people to pick up the phone and call my TA.
Mandee- You must have a lot of patience to handmake photo albums for your girls. How are you doing it?
Erin- the picture in my siggy was from Kauai. FI and I along with my brother and his then gf went last August. My brother has a pro camera, a nikon or something, and we all thought it would be a cute picture to take home with us for memories. It took him forever to set this shoot up, he was a noob then haha! but it came out great! I really think that this is our only normal picture of all the years we've been together. An engagement shoot is still needed, lol.
