July 2011! Just starting to plan.

Recommended Posts

Hi!  Congrats on finding this website -- it is truly amazing and will help you plan your wedding in so many ways!  I personally think that if you are in the continental US, you don't need a travel agent (or their fees, especially if you are on a budget).  I would start by reading the reviews of other brides that have gotten married at each of the resorts that you are considering.  After you choose the one that is right for you (all inclusive or not?  How many guests can they accommodate?  How much is dinner/open bar or consumption bar per head?  etc.) I would start emailing and calling all of the resorts that you are interested in, stating that you have your "heart set" on having your wedding at their resort on or around July __, 2011.  You many of the popular resorts might already be booked, but always leave your name and number in case there is a cancellation (this is how we got the date we wanted!).   Make sure to consider dates during the week if they are already booked on the weekend -- often they are less expensive anyway. 

 

As for booking your plane tickets, go to kayak.com -- they will give you the lowest prices at every site.  Virgin America is now flying directly to Cancun and Los Cabos starting in January and will likely have great deals soon. 

 

Good luck!  You can definitely plan your wedding in six months... your first and largest hurdle is just booking the venue!  After that, it's all much easier.  :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
