Wow, I can't believe its my time to start a planning thread!! For the past year I have been counting down the months until we leave and as of today only 17 more sleeps. I don't know how I would have been able to accomplish anything had I not found this site. Thank you too everyone who has contributed, this site has been a wealth of knowledge and ideas for me.
One of the toughest decisions by far was picking a resort. We knew it had to be Mexico since we have been going there for the past seven years and always love it. Just after coming home from a trip to Mexico in April of 2011 my aunt (also TA) called me with some prices. One of the options was the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya which we had stayed at in 08 and since the price worked for everyone so we booked it.
Their private palapa was part of the deciding factor and they had a nice range of wedding packages.
Second toughest decision without a doubt!!! I live in a very small town with the closest major shopping area 2 hours away. I tried on so many dresses and couldn't find the "one". I fell in love with Pronovias dresses but could only find a limited few to try on in my province. Without any luck I took a chance and ordered a knock off from China. I did this early on in case it wasn't great and I would still have time to find a new one and I could use the knock off for our TTD. Well the dress came and it was well made but not exactly great so back to dress hunting. My next trip out I finally made the decision to order a dress, its Pronovias, Alfil.
Colin's Suit from Le Chateau. His best man will wear the same pants and shirt.
Maid of Honour dress. We're going to add a starfish brooch to the waist. I made her a pair of barefoot sandals to wear but I forgot to take a picture before I gave them to her. We went to a bridal show that holding a gown and dress clearance and this dress matched the groom's shirt perfectly so we got a great bargain.
