I've been "lurking" on this site for a couple months now, and finally feel like I have enough information to officially introduce myself. Plus I want to get rid of that crazy "lurker" label lol.
I'm Leslie from San Francisco. We are just starting to plan our DW in Punta Cana, DR. We have a date and a venue, and that's about it. We are getting married on March 1, 2013 at the Jellyfish Restaurant. Sooo excited!
I haven't seen many other brides who are from the West coast and planning a Punta Cana wedding. Seems like more of an East coast spot, which I guess makes sense proximity-wise. My FI and I chose that location because I'm from CA, and he's from DC, so it's a good place for our families to come together on neutral ground. Plus, it's gorgeous!
I never thought I would be the type of person to start planning my wedding 16 months in advance...but then I found this forum and kinda went crazy lol. There is SO much information on here that has been SO helpful already. I'm going to take a short break from planning (ha, we'll see how long that lasts) but will resume my research after the holidays...
Until then, happy planning everyone!
