    Hi all!


    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!

      16 months is a LOT of time to start getting things ready for your wedding, and it will go by REALLY fast!  :)
