    Loving the amazing advice on the forum- but I feel like I am the only one with a super long engagement... I am hoping there are other brides on this forum getting married in 2012.

    Josh and I are getting married on February 11, 2012

    Hope I wont be the 2012 lone-wolf for long.

    :)

          Thanks Diamond Girl! I know it will go by quickly but the excitement is killing me :P

          Maggie- Congrats and welcome! Have you settled on your hotel yet? When did you get engaged?

            Thanks! I got engaged in Late Feb 2010. Due to budget and Maggie's "vision" We are waiting 2 years so that both my FI and I have time to save and our guests have time as well. I do want to have my date and hotel done by the end of Summer 2010 though. I have been stalking this forum for about 2 months now and I think I have it down to a short list of resorts
            Azul Sensatori
            The Royal either PDC or Cancun
            Aventura Spa Palace

            you?

              That's awesome! We just got engaged in December 2009 :) Josh is starting his masters this September and won't be done until 2012 so that is why we are holding off. That and as you mentioned, the saving.
              We are hoping to book at the Excellence Punta Cana and want to send out our save the dates by the end of the summer (August-September). What dates are you looking at?

                I would love to get my resort done by the summer then use 2010 Christmas cards to get the Save the Dates out. I am looking for a May 2012 wedding but my goal is to have formal invites with travel agent info to everyone by May 2011 - The problem then becomes that these resorts don't publish rates for the next year till later in the prior year! UGH

                  Yea!!!! I am so happy there are other 2012 brides out there!! We have a date, and a budget (somewhat) and that is about it. We are hoping for a site visit in November, and hopefully we will know so we can get our save the dates out by the end of the year. (I love the Christmas card idea). We are doing a long engagement so that I will be done with school when we get married. I love this forum, and I am so happy I have given myself a long time to plan because I am so overwhelmed with all of the details. What resorts is everyone thinking of? My favs are Dreams Riv Maya, Azul Sensarati, and Moon Palace, but am still considering others.

                    Hey Tiffany- we are no longer alone! Long engagements are the new black (lol)
                    Looks like you and Maggie are looking at some of the same hotels-That's exciting!

                    Maggie, your time lines sound awesome I think invites out by May 2011 for your wedding May 2012 is the way to go.

                    Have either of you ladies started looking at STD and invite options? There are amazing ones on Etsy. You can get great deals with some awesome designs done there.
                    :)

                      Actually I was thinking of DIY Magnets for the STDs but I found an awesome invitiation that I love Come to Mexico - Wedding Invitations by Invitation Consultants. (Item # CC-BBAT688-45-ME )
