    L&A - Yes, I've seen you on the DT thread as well :) Finally another November bride at the same resort. We still have some time fortunately, but I agree, there is still so much to do. It's just hard to make some decisions without having ever visited the resort, like where to have the reception or cocktatil hour, or how to decorate. But I know it will all work out in the end, even if we end up bringing nothing but ourselves.

      Im getting married one week after you at ASP also. Same here, sent out STD's and booked our stay. I feel like the next step for me is, also to start looking for my dress and book the photog. Have you researched photogs in the area yet?

        Definitely no comparison! I know it will be worth every dollar. :)

          Good attitude! I picked a destination wedding b/c I didn't want to have to deal with making decisions on so many wedding choices and now I have gone off the deep end scouring this site for every last detail that I never thought of... Lol. It is more fun than I thought:) I agree with you though that not visiting the resort before is a handicap. I will be watching your posts to see how your wedding will turn out.

              PS. I agree that the prices in Mexico can be outrageous! I think it's important to push back. Unfortunately, since most wedding parties are small, it's hard to get leverage. Thank goodness for this forum - it's been invaluable for understanding the process!

              As for planning progress, so far, I have:

              sent out STDs
              bought my DRESS!! (YESS)
              booked DJ, photographer and church/priest

              Currently working on:

              finalizing invitations (planning in sending next month)
              reviewing florists and decorators
              figuring out rehearsal dinner and welcome drinks logistics

                    Woohoo! I finally feel like I'm making progress :) I got my save the dates in the mail yesterday and have them all addressed & stamped and ready to go out tomorrow. Finally finished our wedding website last night.

                    But the save the dates were worth the wait, I absolutely adore them :) And it's my first "wedding related" purchase! I'm so slow!
