    Thanks for starting this! I don't have much besides his ring, reception hall booked and the we know we want to go to Grand Pallidium Lady Hamilton the end of May 2013.  It is so crazy to think it is less than a year a way and I have sooooo much to do!

      Congrats on your engagement and welcome to BDW and the May 2013 thread. Enjoy the process and happy planning!

          Oh girl don't worry! We were engaged 6 months before pulling the trigger on the DW. We were saying about 2 years until our wedding, and now we're less than a year away! But, you'd be surprised how helpful this site and your WC will be through the process. You can get great planning ideas and also some DIY projects! Good luck with all your planning, we're here to help if you need anything!!

           

          Now that you're booked, maybe get in touch with your resort's wedding coordinator [WC] and ask them for a list of their approved/house vendors- DJ, photographer, florist, etc. Most resorts will have their "house vendors" and if you go outside to other vendors, there may be extra fees so start there and began researching. For me, these are the things I'm taking care of right away and the rest are all fun crafty DIY projects & decorations.

          Thanks for the info on the welcome dinner.  And we ended up changing our date to May 25 - so now I think I'm all alone on that date   But my FI wanted to use the holiday so that travelers could have an extra day with out having to take vacation from work.  I gave in on that one!  But I am very excited!  I feel like I am far behind - we got engaged 3 weeks ago, so I don't have much done.

            We wanted to have our wedding the week before our date because Canada has a long weekend then. It just made sense, so that people would have to take less vacation days. Except my fiance and brother have exams that week, so we had to push it back. I'm sure it'll be just as great though!

             

            And you are NOT far behind at all. We didn't even start looking into anything wedding related until 4 months after we got engaged. We officially changed our wedding to a DW 6 months after being engaged. You have plenty of time! :)

                  Most of our guests are staying 4-5 nights. Since it's usually cheaper to fly on a Monday than a Sunday, most of our guests are either coming in Wednesday and leaving Monday (5 nights) or coming in Thursday and leaving Monday (4 nights)...the few that are staying 3 nights are coming in Thursday and leaving Sunday.

                   

                  We're actually arriving in Cancun the Saturday before the wedding. We're staying at a hotel that's much cheaper than the wedding hotel for the 1st few days (non all inclusive). We're going to get a lot of our favors, things for OOT bags during these few days before our guests arrive. Then we're checking into Excellence Playa Mujeres on Wednesday for our Saturday wedding.

                   

                  Hope that helps! Congratulations and Happy Planning!

                    Thanks, Lynn.. Congrats to you too!.

                     

                    Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Now Jade, I've been stalking reviews on Tripadvisor for the past 6 months just to reassure myself that we made the right decisions.

                     

                    Execellenace Playa Mujeres is a great choice but it was a bit too pricey for our guests.

                     

                    Hope to see more of you and your plans on BDW and this thread!

                      We're expecting 60 guests and here's our schedule:

                       

                      Thursday:

                      Spa treatments for the girls/guys in the wedding party during the day

                      Welcome Cocktail Reception in the evening

                       

                      Friday:

                      Catamaran excursion to Isla Mujeres with snorkeling, shopping, lunch on beach (Since some of our guests are arriving on Thursday we chose Friday to make sure everyone could participate)

                      Rehearsal

                      Rehearsal Dinner (inviting wedding party, participants, immediate family members)

                       

                      Saturday:

                      Ceremony

                      Cocktail Reception

                      Dinner Reception

                       

                      Sunday:

                      Recovery Brunch
