    How far in advance did you ladies start planning your wedding? Mine isn't until 2013! But I'm already planning and collecting pictures of things I have to have.

        I have some advice for jamaica adventures. I went through barrett adventures. AMAZING! we had so much fun. They have private tours for you and your party!!! Check out the tours to the falls, secret falls, ys falls and Reach falls.. I think these are tours that aren't offered by other companies in Jamaica. Here is the link

        PS you have to look this up on line and take the number with you.. Your resort won't give it to you because they want you to do their tours!! : ) But it is worth doing..!!

          I started planning about 1.5 years in advance of our wedding. There are pros & cons to starting as early as you are planning.

          Cons... don't look at prices yet. They are likely to go up but as long as you're not looking at them now then you won't know by how much they've gone up and then feel discouraged. I'd wait until about a year or so before the wedding before really talking numbers. Also, you'll have so many great ideas that it might be frustrating to sit on your hands because there is only so much you can do until a year - 6 months before the wedding.

          Pros... you have lots of time to really learn what you want for your special day. You have time to think to think about the different elements that will add personal touches to your day and the more you plan & organize ahead of time the less stress you'll feel just before the wedding. There will ALWAYS be stress just before the wedding but nothing like if you left everything until the last minute. You have time on your side so you can really make the most of it.

          Congratulations on the engagement and happy planning. You've come the right resort to get lots of ideas.

            Thanks for this info - some other people said to do it this way too and that the resort is way more expensive. I will deffintately be looking into this!!

              i started planning mine just about a year in advance. i really don't think you need more time than that. prices aren't out, you can't send your guests anything, and you can't book your actual wedding date with the resort before that time. i guess it's never too early to look up ideas and just browse and see what is available and what others are doing.

                I started thinking of ideas 2 years ahead (LOTS of researching on this site!) which is when we got engaged. The serious planning started in January 2010, which was about 16 months before the big day. I knew I wanted May 2011, but I didn't know the date until the prices came out, which was a year ahead of time.
