Recommended Posts

 

Thanks! And apologies for the delayed response - still learning how to navigate around here :)

I have a friend that got married at MP - they loved it! We decided on Aventura Cove...

I have no idea how I missed this forum!

 

I'm a 2012 bride! I used to work for a travel wholesaler booking destination weddings, so I was pretty sure I wanted to have one myself when the time came. My FI and I took a trip to Secrets Maroma after we'd been dating 6 weeks in December '09, and that's where we fell in love. We immediately started talking about getting married in the Riviera Maya, especially since our family is spread out from the East Coast to California.

 

While we wanted to do Secrets Maroma, it's adults only, and I have a 16 year old little brother. I started looking around at different resorts. I saw pictures from a friend's honeymoon on Facebook last summer, but I wasn't familiar with the hotel. It turned out to be the Royal PDC, which is adults only for 16 and over! I didn't sell this hotel, but the more I researched it, the more I realized it was exactly what we were looking for! And this way, we get to go back to Secrets for our honeymoon :)

 

My FI proposed this February in Napa, and we are officially booked for May 19, 2012!

 

As for my dress, we got engaged on a Friday, and I was in my first dress appointment by that Wednesday! I was so excited! My mom lives in Chicago and I live in California, so I went to a couple of stores to narrow it down before she came out here to shop. She's coming next weekend, and I've narrowed it down to 3 dresses to show her. Of course, I have a favorite, when I emailed the styles to her, it's her favorite, too! I can't wait to finally buy it!

 

I have also made the executive decision to do some cake tasting locally... We should not be deprived of this experience just because we're getting married in Mexico! :)

 

I'm having the best time being a bride, and I hope you all are, too!

Hi everyone!  I'm a 2012 bride as well.  We got engaged in January, and I know the time until July 2012 is going to fly.  I look forward to getting to know everyone and bouncing ideas and frustrations off of each other.

How is everyone deciding on quantity of items to order for their OOT bags if you don't have your booking or RSVP count yet?  I have found some different items that I would like to start ordering and collecting now, but I have no idea how to guess how many I will actually need.  Everyone says they want to go, but anything can happen until they actually put the money down.  Just wondering how others are handling this.
