    Hi everyone, this is a great site! I got engaged last week, but we have been together for 6 years!! I have been in 13 weddings(I'm 39) and maid of honor 8 times so now that is my turn I want to do a destination wedding. There is a part of me that feels guilty, but it's about my and my fiance and this is what we want to do. Here is what I have so far....

    Wedding Date:-Trying for end of October or 1st of November (yes I know it's hurricane season, but I want to get married this year and I'm afraid to go into the holiday season.)

    Wedding location: Narrowed down to 1st choice: Dreams Cancun (love the gazebo site) but they are slow to get back to my travel agent(who is also my best friend). I'm worried they won't have any dates in 2010!!! 2nd choice- NOW Jade Riviera(formerly NH) I don't see a lot of info on this one. I want to do Cancun and am struggling finding locations I like.

    I'm also working on the Save the Date cards since it is soooo close. I work for a printer and he will print me postcards for free. Is it tacky to do a Save the Date/invite on the postcard (6x11) and direct my guests to our website for information?

    Anyways this site is GREAAAAT! I appreciate any feedback you are willing to give!

      Congrats on your recent engagement and welcome to the forum. I was also concerned about hurricane season when planning my wedding but luckily the venue I hasn't had any incidents with hurricanes so it was all systems go. I think by October you should be fine though.

      As for your choices, did you try using the search tool. Lots of times things can be easily found that way. Or go to the threads of other Mexico brides and ask around. Most people on the website are extremly friendly and willing to help.

      Good luck and happy planning!

              Congrats!! I love the gazebo at Dreams Cancun also, but am not crazy about the rooms. I don't think the STDs would be tacky at all!! Good luck!
