    The people that really want to be there will be there. And it's really about the 2 of you being together and getting married! We got engaged December 5th and married in Jamaica April 20th with 32 people so I think no matter how much time you give people there will always be things in life that will prevent them from being able to some. Do what you really want and enjoy!!

        Yes it toatally can be done, as everyone said you just have to be orgazied and no what you want. Also with where to have the wedding you and FI need to discuss whats really important and just remember even if you push it back their will always be excuses from people as to why they cant attend so just keep that in mind becuase just think if you push it back for the friends that have newborns and now their older they might decided that they dont want to travel with a toddler so I would say really Know what you and FI want to do and proceed from there.

          Mel, I'm aiming for February and have just started planning and I'm told that I have plenty of time... so not to worry! I've also been told that now would be the best time to start, as resorts have just put out their pricing. Good luck to you!

            Hi Mel2010. If you've planned events before, have FI help, and are detailed-oriented, it should be a snap. Otherwise, you may want or need some help from an outside wedding planner to pull off a well-attended DW in six months.

              i know tonnes of people who have planned a local wedding in under 3 months. so 6 months for a destination wedding is totally easy.

              just get out there and do some dress shopping!

              if you are worried about people not coming to your destination wedding...just think about what is more important to you. the location or the family/friends being there?

              do what is right for the both of you.

                Of course you can plan it in 6 months! Even though I had alot of time, I didnt do alot of the "real stuff" until the last 6 months. If you decide not to do OOT bags then its a breeze. Those took me longet than anything else. They say that you need to order your dress about 6- 8 months in advance but I didnt order mine until Feb and I got it in May - (actually it was being altered and I get it officially today. :) YAY! ) Other than that there isnt too much to do for a DW - they do alot of the stuff there - you just need to make some decisions while you are here.
                Good luck - whatever you decide, it will be great!
