DW...Where do you start???

Recommended Posts

We haven't set a date but it is overwhelming to think about all you need to do. Any advice on where to start? We are thinking Cozumel and will likely visit before we finalize that, but any advice on where to place our focus and what is really not important would be great!

My FI and I just started planning and it is a bit overwhelming at first. Although we knew we would do a DW before we were even engaged now that it's here it's hitting us all at once!! Don't fret too much though, right now we're still working on pin-pointing a location, we've done this basically by going through expedia to search for the resorts we want and base it off the price range we want to keep for our guests. Then we go through all of the reviews on the resorts, research the wedding packages available and contact the WC for more information. I also base reviews off of the reviews posted on BDW! After that make your pros and cons list to narrow it down. If you're like me though you'll want to be looking for the more fun stuff - which you can still play around with!! Once you have your location, it will all start to fall in to place!!

 

Good luck and Happy Planning!!

Congrats! I think the hardest thing to do is to pick a location. I was all over the place with that. I knew I wanted it in Mexico. But where from there? I did research on that location and thought it was it. THEN, I found out (not from my own research, but from friends) that the water was cold and not really good to swim in. I should have figured, it being on the Pacific side. That changed the game, and eventually we chose Playa. My FI has been there (we originally wanted him to go somewhere new) but he has always loved it and said it would be just what I was looking for.

 

NEXT was the resort. I based it purely off of Tripadvisor. It is a little more pricey than I would have originally liked, but it was really rated high, and it is gorgeous! SO... I guess that's how we got started. Also, I am fortunate enough to have SEVERAL (10+?)brides that I have found on this thread getting married at the same resort before me!! 1 just posted her review and it was great,... so all in all, I am very happy with my choice. GOOD LUCK!!!!

vlynnw I think that is great advice! I would have to recommend the same thing. Check out resorts that you like, expedia is great like vlynn suggested, you can get a good idea for pricing as well as photos and feedback from past travelers. Happy Planning, you will find great information on the forum. I would also suggest using the search engine to find out info from current and past brides as far as their feedback/site inspections go at resorts you like. As LadyTrunck mentioned, I have also been using trip advisor to get current feedback. There are LOTS of great reviews on there. Wishing you all the best. :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • 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.
