        I'll definitely have to keep in touch with you :) I'd like to know how things go and how your wedding turns out! How many people will you have attending and how long have you been planning? If it's easier to communicate through email, let me know.
        I will definitely keep you posted, a little less than 6 months to go!! =D
        Lets see, we have only been planning for about 5 months now...sounds crazy now that I say it lol but he proposed in June 09 and our original intent was to get married in Sept 2011 at a local venue, when at our engagement party in Nov, we both decided to move the wedding up a year and have a destination wedding lol so we just sprung it up on our guests and everyone totally loved the idea! And we are having a total of 35 guests, It was hard limiting it to that small amount of people but thats just what worked for us. So, do you have any ideas in mind yet about your wedding

              That's so exciting :) Are all your guests staying at the Gran Caribe? My finance proposed in 2007, can you imagine the wait for me!? UGH, it's like torture LOL...

              So far, just with close family we know will be attending, we're at 60 guests. I think when we are said and done, it'll be 75. I'm a little worried about the guest list. We'll have to figure that out! I have had a lot of time to think about ideas and we pretty much know what we want. After seeing the resort in person, we for sure want to do the Catholic Ceremony in the Chapel. We'll have to do the civil ceremony right after. For the reception, we're thinking the Terrace on the roof top of Albatros. We really liked the view from there. What are you guys doing? Are you having a rehearsal dinner or anything like that?

                  Thanks Shannon! Congrats to you too :)

                  How did you handle planning so far in advance? I feel that at times the WC at the resort doesn't take me seriously because I'm so far out, you know? I've been very persistent but I feel like I'm being too pushy. What is most important to me is making sure we get the date we want because we've already begun to tell our family. We just want to make sure we give them enough time to save and plan for the trip. What did you do?

                    Oh wow! but that just means thats youve had all that time to plan and gather information, now youre more than prepared To answer your question, none of our guests are staying at the Gran Caribe. We will all be staying at the Royal since its an Adult Only resort and were only adults lol But yes the Chapel is exquisite, I really loved the look of it but we decided to do a civil ceremony before we leave CA and just do a spiritual wedding in Cancun. We will have our ceremony on the Oceanfront Gazebo and our reception and entertainment on the terrace. I know that real resorts does not coordinate a rehearsal so when we get down there ( a week before our wedding date) we will just look around at places near the resort to hold a rehearsal.
