    We did the opposite even though his family is much larger than mine.  But we both have massive amount of friends etc.  We are not having an AHR because we are buying a home.  In addition, we would spend more for the AHR than the wedding because of the people that we know.  For us it would be have been a big debt which is what facilitated a destination wedding ;-)  But so far everyone says "oh we are going to make a vacation out of it" or "this will be our vacation for the year"  we will see as the STDs go out in 2 weeks.

                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.
