How far in advance? *help*

Also, how many days did you get married (or plan on getting married) after you arrived at your resort? We are thinking about doing all of the legal stuff here before we go, but I didn't know if people usually waited a few days before their actual wedding day.
Sorry for so many questions but I am feeling a little lost!

You should be booked already. Especially for an April wedding due to it being peak season for vacationers. Even if the travel dates aren't out yet, get it booked ASAP. My wedding is October 2011 and I have my venue booked. There really is no timeline. However, if you really have your heart set on a particular venue and/or want to do the destination wedding, book now. When you say vacation are you referring to Honeymoon?
I'm staying for a total of 7 days. Then we're off to our honeymoon. We love vacationing and normally go away for 2 weeks at a time. It's your choice and how flexible your time is as far as work is concerned. I'm doing the legal stuff here too. You won't have to worry about translating the marriage certificate and all the money that will be spent by the time it's all said and done. No one will know but you and you're hubby, if you choose to do it this way. You can celebrate your mexico wedding date for your wedding anniversary, as opposed to your official wedding date. Yes, you can marry a few days before.
I Hope I've answered your questions. If you have further, just ask! That's what this forum is for and all the brides on here are always willing and able to help.

I know exactly how you feel since I was in your position a few weeks ago. Its sometimes overwhelming with all the information .. this is what I did.
first find a resort that you really want to get married in. Second, Request for a wedding date that you want. The resort might even ask you about how many guests you're having and if they offer a wedding package, which one would you want.
Then the resort will get back to you whether if that date is available or not.
After that, you will need to confirm with the resort if you want to reserve that date. (my resort is giving me 3 months to confirm the date I requested. When I confirm, I should have a reservation set for that hotel as well. Each resort can be different on how they book weddings)
My suggestion is to find a travel agent that has experience with destination weddings and the location you want. I've been in constant contact with my TA, who will give me pricing any minute now on hotel rates and airfare. Once we get the rates, my TA will book our reservation with the hotel then I can confirm on the final date.
Hope this helps. =)
