Hi everyone! I got engaged on December 23rd, and I'm officially in wedding planning mode.We want to set the date for May24, 2013. I am stuck btwn RIU Aruba and Beach Palace Cancun. I need some input and help! I nervous to pick the wrong location. Then I get worried about finding the right DJ, dance floor, florist, food option, photographer, package option, etc... I do not want to end of spending what I would at home... HELP! I do not know if I need to bring my own decor of if what they have is enough?

Congratulations on your engagement! Part of the reason my finance got on board with a destination wedding is that I'm way to type A. If we were getting married here I know I'd be alllllll over the details. And that day I'd be annoyed with things that weren't right. Planning from a distance I've given up a lot of that control. Bamboo arch? Ok. Chairs? Yes please. Type, color, chair covers, sashes, aisle decor, etc. I've given up control of. Ok things I can control like the menus and photographer I've been particular about. Start with something small, like deciding which country you'd like to get married in and take it one decision at a time from there. We did a quiz in some planning journal ranking our priorities (tier A, B, C) so at least we knew what we were both willing to compromise on.
My finance kept telling me "as long as you're there to marry me it will be perfect" and I've finally listened to him.
