Can you really plan a wedding in less than 6 months???

Also, I'm debating on a DW in Jamaica in March 2011 however I would end up loosing a lot of guests due to pregnancies or friends having newborns around that time. I don't think some of my friends will want to travel to our wedding during that time frame. So I'm also considering a backyard wedding (we have over 1 acre of land, so we could have a wedding right here at home) sometime next Spring 2011.
Am I stressing too much on who can come vs. who can't come? Should I just focus on us...and not care about who can make it or not?? Aagggghhhh decisions, decisions...I can't make up my mind!!!

I know you are concerned about losing some guests anyways by waiting because of babies and other obligations, but you never know what's going to happen. People can be TTCing and not always get preggo as desired.
My suggestion- put a list of MUST ATTENDS together. Talk to those people about how you want them to be present at the wedding and see what they say. Then I'd plan a wedding for what's convenient for those people and I'd forget the rest because no matter what, many won't attend.
I can't help you about the home vs away though. That's for you guys to decide. We knew 100% no home wedding for us so the date was our only challenge and we planned that around our immediate family.

We knew that there would be people we would be excluding from our DW as well (I also had two close girlfriends who just had newborns, and won't be able to attend), but we've always known that we wanted to have a DW. We'll be having a BBQ/open house get-together when we get back, so everyone who couldn't attend in Mexico will still be able to get together with us.
