Hereâ€™s my planning thread, hope it helps some people, I know how much I have enjoyed reading about all the past brides planning. Thank you so much for all the ideas and inspiration that I have been able to gather from everyone. I wish I had been more diligent with taking down who I took ideas from so I could give credit. As I am a pre-plan-aholic a destination wedding may not be the best for my sanity. There are so many unknowns that you aren't able to fill in till arriving. So thank goodness for this site which has definitely helped to save my sanity by answering a ton of my million and one questions. So to all THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
We met 13 years ago (grade 7) we were always friends, but it wasnâ€™t until we graduated from high school that we actually starting dating. Long story short It just wasnâ€™t time for us to start our happily ever after yet so we ended breaking up but staying on good terms. Cut to three years later Mr. Sun Sand and Surf was looking to buy a new house and conveniently I am a Realtor, so of course he calls me. From that point on it was like we had never been apart, sparks flew and we have never looked back. On our Three year anniversary he completely surprised me, proposing with the most beautiful ring
There was no humming and hawing we knew we wanted a destination wedding and that was that Picking a location was one of the hardest parts. We wanted something beautiful but affordable so that our guest wouldn't have to break that bank to get there. We decided on the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal in the Riviera Maya. We will be married on the beach and have a private poolside dinner and reception afterwards.
If I have one piece of advice I can offer from my experience so far it is pick a GOOD Travel Agent. Our Travel Agent has been an absolute nightmare at times to work with, I wonâ€™t mention any names but please, please, please, make sure you pick a good one!!!!
