    So far we have booked our date, purchased out Save the Dates (are hoping to send them out his weekend), bought my dress, did a site visit/menu tasting, booked our photographer (Ivan Luckie) and enlisted a travel agent.  We also started our wedding website which I will list below. 

    We originally were booking for Sat May 11th, but decided to go with Fri the 10th to give people the option to leave on Saturday or Sunday.  That being said my whole family is planning on staying mid week through midweek, but we have some frends who could only do a long weekend. 

    I feel like we should be doing more but I'm not quite sure what!

      Hey Kristie, Welcome to BDW and the May 2013 thread!

       

      I definitely use to spend countless hours looking at wedding dresses.  I knew exactly what I wanted and thought it would make things easier, but it was definitely a full time job trying to find it. In the end two dresses stole my heart both of which I specifically had my local boutique bring in, but one would have broken my dress budget which made the decision easier ( I would still be debating about which dress to choose). 900x900px-LL-60400abc_Photo07281600.jpg

      Good luck with your dress search, what's your criteria so far?

      Beautiful Dress!!!

      My budget is $2000 for a dress including alterations... Although Calgary is a big city we just dont get all the designers like you guys in the States..

      I love this siloutte of your dress. I am looking for something similar maybe fit an flare. Ideally some thing a little different.. not strapless. I love dresses with intersting back detail.. I will start to scour all the bridal stores here in the next few weeks! I will keep you posted. Lol

                Hi Ladies!! Tomorrow will make me exactly a year away from our wedding in DR!! Ahhhhh!!  Cant believe we are a year away. My Save the dates went out yesterday. Anyway, is anyone worried about the weather in the Caribbean in May, specifically Punta Cana? Of course its a rainey month and the weather is something I cant control but has anyone visited during this month?

                  I’m so happy for us BDW May 18th Brides - Bride81, TauruSmith, Angela2013, Eyeball17, (definitely missing a 5/18 Bride in this line up) and now you!  Officially 1 year and counting. I’m definitely not worried about the weather as I have been to the RM twice, once late April the other time mid-May.  And the forecast called for lightning and thunderstorms almost every day of both our vacations but we never saw one drop of rain, and only one morning with a cloudy sky.  Many Locals told us that they never pay attention to the weather until later in the summer because it's always wrong. Hopefully the weather trends similarly in Punta Cana.

                    Hey! This may be a little late (I just joined and started to read the May 2013Brides thread since I am now one!). BUT I just got back from site visits in Cancun, RM and Tulum. Everything that you mentioned in what you are looking for in a venue I found in Dreams Tulum. They have a really cute chapel right by the beach and many options on where you would want your reception. Hope that helps!
