I have stayed at the Excellence resort that is just down from the Moon Palace and I loved it. It's a much smaller resort than the moon palace so it might be a nice change of pace for you...

      and as for your friends annoying you - I think that just comes with being a bride :) Hopefully its not too bad.
      Thanks for some input. We have to decide soon. Ugh I am just over sensitive i guess. idk whatever I am not going to worry about it!

          Does anyone happen to know how many updo's the resort is able to handle for one wedding party? I have a total of 7 ladies(including me) right now that want their hair done for the wedding and I'm just curious if the resort can handle it or if I am going to have to start picking which bridesmaid can do their own hair and which should have a pro do it :)
          I emailed the lady for the hair and makeup appointments already which she said she would confirm with me in Jan. I think I have like 5 doing hair and makeup and she didnt say they couldnt handel it. I just made sure that I made the appointments early enough incase they were running late. ( someone on a post here commented that they ran a little late) I also scheduled a hair trial for myself the day I arrive...my make up I can fix...my hair is another story :)
          Not even rain could ruin my wedding day!

            I think we should start a list of what we all "think" we need to do in order to plan our wedding.. Like how many months before we should be doing so and so..

            For me:
            About a year until my wedding- I sent out Save The dates
            About a year until my weddingl- I began looking for my dress. It takes approx. 6 months to come in
            Hoping to send out my invitations about 7 months before

            Booking appointments etc.. How long in advance you think we need..I know we do not receive our WC until 4 months before, but what can we do until then?

            I hope you girls don't think I am crazy... =)

            Like to know what you ladies are up to now!

              My wedding is in April:

              12 Months before- Tried on dresses and ordered "the one"
              9 Months before- Sent out STD
              7 Months before- Got my dress
              6 Months before- Worked on formal invites
              4 Months before- Send out formal invites, get FI and groomsmen attire
              3 Months before- Get OOT bags and legal documents together
              1 Month before- Have hair and makeup trial (mom and BM doing these for me)

              I'm probably missing a lot in between, but this is all I can think of for now.

                Do you by any chance still have the email address?
                I was just assigned my on site coordinator this week but she is away until November 30th. (so really I have just been assigned an email address I can send questions too and hope she responds in a couple weeks when shes back)

                Thanks!!!!

                  Our Wedding is in February...
                  12mths before: Engaged - Informed everyone it would be a destination wedding in February
                  10mths before: Confirmed the date and time with the resort
                  9mths before: sent out save the dates
                  8mths before: Ordered my dress
                  6mths before: Ordered the bridesmaid dresses
                  3mths before: Emailed resort to start setting up private reception and other wedding details.

                  That's pretty much all I have done so far...
                  We didn't do formal invites - just added a line on our save the dates that said to RSVP on our website.

                    We will probably be there at the same time since I get on on the 24th!! Have you come and said hi to all of us crazy girls in the Feb brides group yet?

                    As for the shells from what i have seen they have been in the bottom of the jar!
