      Welcome and Congrats! I am from the Ottawa area too!

      I got engaged in April and started planning in May, FI and I are getting married at the end of February in Jamaica. So if you start now you should have plenty of time, If you have any questions just let me know! Happy planning!

It will most likely be Jamaica or Mexico for that budget as we don't want the D.R. or Cuba. There are so many decisions to make already... and we've only been engaged for a week!

        GOOD FOR YOU!!!! I am so so happy to hear it, it is your and FIs day and you DO NOT need the extra stress of someone who thinks it is your duty to cater your day to them!

        It is not ambitious at all, that is the beauty of a destination wedding.  I would however suggest getting on dress shopping ASAP.  I haven't bought mine but we are doing a Feb 2012 wedding but it often can take 6+ months for them to come in once you order.  Other than that a destination wedding can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it.  Join us in the February 2012 Brides thread!!! We were originally looking at getting married in Jamaica, check out the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites/Beach/Grand.  We fell in love with this resort but it was definitely out of our budget.  The more affordable options we came across were the Grand Bahia Principe and Grand Palladium.  Just get a GREAT GREAT GREAT (I cannot stress that part enough) TA who specializes in destination weddings.  It took us 5 or 6 TAs before we found one who would help us out.  I don't think you need to wait until August, if you get the right TA they will get you the best possible price and many tour operators have price match guarantee!!! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!!!

                Thanks Ladies! I'm leaning towards Jamaica (the Rose Hall Beach is a front runner) as we've been there and I know I loved it. Costa Rica was my first choice but I know it would cost more. May I ask who your TA is? I've walked into a couple who just shoved brochures at me like that would magically narrow the choices, GRRRR!

                    Are you ladies working with a TA in your area, or one online/through phone calls? Not sure what I should do with that...

                      We tried in our area (2 different cities as we moved in the middle of planning) and had NO LUCK.  A TA actually found ME online on the FB group for my resort and she has been awesome.  She is not too far from us but everything we have done has been through email.  We did have 1 phone call to give her our credit card info as I didn't feel comfortable passing it along over the phone.  I am more comfortable on email and I like having that "paper trail" so I can re-read and make sure we are on the same page!
