    Hello fellow brides to be :) I got engaged in January and am now starting to plan my DW (as we have family on both coasts of Canada). I have a lot more people RSVPing then I thought would, even though not all will inevitably make it. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed about choosing the 'right' resort that everyone will enjoy. We are leaning towards Mayan Riviera, Mexico March 2nd-9th 2013 but I have no idea which resort. Hoping to figure it out soon... *deep breath

      Hey, he is doing pretty good. Problem is is that we need his oncologist to tell us that what he sees in his scans and bloodwork is also good. My FI has an amazing mental and physical resilience, it is very inspiring and encouraging to be around. Cancers fickle though, so we definitely are looking forward to our appointment tomorrow where a plan, pathology and prognosis will be given to us. So nerve racking! Thanks for asking.



      Still thinking of you Katie! How is your FI doing this week? Fingers crossed, and prayers sent your way for good news :)

      I am just like you!  I am in wedding mode as well!  Always on thie forum....picking up all these great DIY projects!  Hopefully I will be all set by summer and not be so rushed late fall!  This is the fun part though!!!

      Who am I kidding though? With this forum, I don't think I will ever run out of things to research/consider/plan for. It's addictive! lol

      Hopefully I gain another punch of motivation to actually do stuff.

        Hey everyone!

        I'm a June 2013 bride.  We are looking towards the Riviera Maya area, FI likes Dreams RC (I don't, bc they don't allow outside vendors) and I am leaning towards Now Sapphire, but I just don't know .

         

        Although I absolutely love this site, everytime I come online, I end up seeing something better and changing my mind, and I am so anxious to book a resort, (I'm probably way ahead of the game).  I can't wait to start planning!

          The best word of adive I can give is TAKE YOUR TIME! I chose Jamaica as a destination when I first got engaged and blabbed my mouth to everybody friends, family, etc. now I wish I took the time and researched each country and what it had to offer. I am also a June 2013 bride and we have seventeen months! Take your time and read through all of the resort reviews and then move on to planning threads. I think you will be happier in the long run if you do this. I REALLY REALLY want to switch my destination to Hawaii but I chose Jamaica and booked way to far in advance...

                Hey, can I ask why you want to switch your destination? I am worried that I may want to do the same one day...

                  Yes, we were able to book our wedding and hold a group of rooms, but it's too early for us to do flights. We are very happy to do that since that allows people more time to pay on their trips.

                    Peach I am in the same boat! I don't know how everyone on here has their dates & resorts booked already..I am from Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada and we are going to be getting married (hopefully at Dreams La Romana) in February but our travel agent has called everyone to try to get pricing for next year but can't yet..she says ill have to wait a few more months...anyone have thoughts on that?
