    Hi Ladies (and man brides ;-) )

    I'm new to this forum and was interested to see women from all areas of the world discussing their experience in planning a destination wedding. My experience so far has been pretty good but also confusing and a tad stressful. When you are planning a trip on behalf of 40+ people, quick decisions are tough and it's hard to remember it's about you when you are taking so many other people, genders, age ranges etc. into consideration.

    My hopeful plan is to host my wedding at the Azul beach hotel in the Mayan Riviera but due to some upcoming renovations scheduled I actually have to trim down my guestlist which is not an easy thing to do as I was conservative when I started making it!

    So, I hope as things progress I'll be able to discuss and share my stories (good and bad) with the rest of you ladies, who I know will relate and probably share some stories of your own that will make mine not seem so bad! LOL

    We're all here to relate to eachother's joy, misery, stress and happiness during the biggest and best time of our lives.

    Cheers to us ladies, we're all in this together!

                    Hello fellow Ottawa bride. Yes, planning for 40+ people is stressful and I'm in the same situation. I keep telling myself those who can make it great and if not that is OK too and everything will be fine.

                    Looking forward to hearing and sharing planning stories.
