    Welcome Jamie! .  There are a lot of people in the forum willing to help with whatever you need, so don't hesitate to ask questions.  Post what you've done so far.  Have you done any DIY stuff? Happy Planning!

      This will be much more fun to say what I have done instead of what I haven't done :)

       

      Location: Azul Sensatori, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

      Guests: Expecting about 50.  21 Booked.

      Colors: Tiffany Blue, Canary Yellow, and White

      Selected the ceremony & reception locations

      Bought the dress! - It should arrive any day now!

      Sent out my STDs (which actually turned into full invitations!).  I wish I could lie and say they were DIY, but I was getting way too frustrated and ended up paying $ for them.

        Very nice!! They turned out great!! I'm in the process of ordering mine from a seller on etsy too!  I couldn't be bothered with all that cutting and gluing for 100+ invitations!! LOL

        In terms of my other planning:

         

        • I'm going to be ordering my bridesmaids dresses soon from www.bigdaydress.com (style JH 5082).
        • I bought my gown last weekend!!  (... but still looking for my FI's suit!!)
        • I'm booked to visit my wedding locations (in Panama) from Sept. 20th for a week!!  So excited I could actually see things first hand to help my with all the decision making and planning.

         



        J + R ~ Bristol Buenaventura, Panama ~ 26.May.2011~~ 95 booked (+ bride & groom)

          I am sooo far behind haha! The only thing I have done is chosen the resort and sent in the date request, even though I'm still debating the date....only time available was 6.30pm, do you guys think that is too late???

          I have my wedding band, but we still need to get one for FI. I have designed the STDs but not ordered them yet.

           

          JR14, where in Panama are you getting married? We were considering Panama for a little while there.

            Its so interesting to see the different stages everyone is in.  I thought I was far ahead, but I see a few others that are even further ahead than me!

             

            Happy Planning Everyone!

                For what it's worth I think you should also go with what will work the best for YOU!  We had a tricky time too because there were only days available at the beginning and the end of our planned trip.  Then it turns out many of our guests from the USA are coming for 5 days (rather than the full week).  In the end I decided to do it pretty close to the beginning of our trip - arrive Wednesday and wedding Friday, May 27, 2011.  I made the decision for ME because I knew I would be a stress case until the wedding was over and my vacation could actually start.  hahaha

                 

                So... try and think about what you want personally and don't worry too too much about everyone else.  After all, if they're going all that way for your wedding they'll be happy to have it any day during their trip I'm sure.  :-)

                  You're right! I am so busy with trying to please everyone's wishes and I know it. I think I would prefer to have it in the beginning of the trip but on those days the only time left is early that day (not am but earlier than I would like). I could move it up one day and have it on that Wednesday....not sure what to do :S

                     Isn´t the dress perfect? I love it!  I found it at a place full of wonderful stuff from India!

                     

                    The villa is a great choice as it has six of us put for all our stay and we are celebrating the ceremony there.

                    There is a Wedding fee and the extras would be hiring the setup for reception, and that is it, as all the rest, you also pay in the hotels!

                    But privacy pays, this time for us!  

                     

                    I found the dress at a special store where they sell Indian stuff. Isn´t it beautiful?

                    Nan and Erik forever!!!

                      Yeah, if we had a small wedding that is they way I would have gone. Sounds really nice!
