    Okay, I searched around and didn't see one of these...apologies if I missed one. I thought it would be great to have a thread for those planning on getting married in Nov. 2011.

    So post your dates and locations and anything else! I'm sure there will be more November 2011 people in a few months, but there must be a few of us on here now!

      We will get married on November 11, 2011, but we're still in the process of choosing a resort. We're probably inviting around 80-90 people with no idea of how many are coming. After lots of planning complications, we decided to fly in our own rabbi and priest, so we can have a joint ceremony.

      Unlike most folks, we'd rather do an indoor (or at least covered, off the beach) ceremony and reception. We figure we'll get plenty of gorgeous beach time during the rest of our stay in Mexico. =)

      I mentioned this on in the newbie area, but the resorts we're considering are:

      Gran Caribe Real
      Sandos Playacar/Caracol Eco Resort/Riviera Beach
      Barcelo Maya Beach/Costa Cancun/Tucancun Beach
      Dreams Cancun/Riviera Cancun/Tulum/Puerto Aventuras

      If anyone has thoughts on these, let me know!

          Caitlin, we're date twins! =) It's so exciting that you have a resort booked already! How did you decide on it?

                I doubt it. Mine will pipe in if I ask his opinion but otherwise stays out of it right now. Lol!

                  We are date twins!

                  We decided on Iberostar because it was (a) all-inclusive (B) inexpensive and © My cousin was married there a couple years ago and everyone loved it. I have a lot of family between the US, England and Ireland, so I have people flying in from all over. It was important it was inexpensive and all-inclusive for this reason, because there are people traveling far for the wedding and we wanted to make it as affordable as possible. There are also a lot of children in my family, and it was important that they can come as well, and the Iberostar is family friendly, without being overun by children.

                  What resorts are you looking at?

                    Caitlin, I keep hearing great things about Iberostar. I'm sure you'll have a great time there!

                    We are very undecided about resorts right now. We really like Barcelo Maya Beach, Sandos Playacar, and Gran Caribe Real, but it's just all so much info to sort through! I can't wait til we get something booked...well, one of these days.

                    I'm hoping that after booking, we can take a bit of a wedding planning breather (except I won't stop looking at wedding dresses until the wedding day itself, probably)...

                      We are super undecided about wedding resorts too! I feel like all I do is spend hours trying to sort out the details!!! We are also considering Sandos Playcar, but I love the Grand Palladium and Gran Bahia. So we will see.

                      And I keep trying to not look at wedding dresses but my internetkeeps wandering so those sites. I completely understand!!
