How funny, my fiancee and I decided the exact opposite! We were planning our wedding date to be April 22, 2012 (hence my name ), but we have moved the date to October 28...just 4 1/2 months! I would have loved to do it in the spring, but we just want to be married and not wait anymore
We are marrying at the Manchebo, and we chose this location because of the great reviews and feedback from trip advisor, other travel sites, and from girls on this forum. I'm super excited. It isn't the least expensive, but we cut out all of the extras, and just went with the basic package plus a couple extras in order to make it fit in our budget.
Lissy Lampe, the wedding planner, is great, and Vivian Frank the reservations manager at the Manchebo is very sweet.
I've heard good things about the Renaissance too, and I think it may be slightly less expensive.
I suggest taking your time looking through past threads, I know there are some amazingly helpful comments from a few brides who married there. Thanks to these ladies, this experience has been a lot easier!
