      Everyone is welcome. The lady I got it from off of another thread really saved me a headache with that. I told her she was awesome because I would have never thought of that and I had no clue where to start. Her time line is a God Send

        Hi Girls!! I don't feel so bad anymore. 2013 hit and the planner has come out! I'm going crazy thinking that it's really not that much time!! I actually started to do my save the dates. Let me tell you...it's a labor of love. I didn't realize how time consuming it would be. I plan on doing the invitations soon after. (I'm a grad student and am on break til Feb.) Since I plan to send the invites out as early as June, think it's time to get started on those too. Congrats to all of us 2014 brides!!!

          You are ahead of the game!  I wish I could be more organize than where I am right now.  :(

We are choosing between Punta Cana and Mayan Riviera/Cancun. The only thing we have decided is the time of year and a couple different destinations... Any ideas or advice would be great! Also, thinking luggage tags for STDs:) Thanks 2014 brides! We want to choose the destination/resort by march and that's when we will send STDs, and invitations August??

             

            Hi Kpounder.

            For me the decision was easy. Punta Cana! I got engaged there and I'm dominican. I though of Riviera Maya but it is more expensive than the DR to get married and from what I read from fellow brides, there's a couple of hurdles you have to jump to be able to get married there. Not sure how true that it but as soon as I saw the prices for Mexico, Punta Cana was the clear choice for me. I'm getting married at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. If you plan on a DR wedding, I'd suggest you take a look at it. I'm doing boarding pass for the STDs and Passports for the invites. My wedding is in March, hope to have the STDs out by early Feb and invites by June/July

                    Hey! Are you using a travel agent? Did you confirm your wedding date or book anything with the resort yet? I love the sound of a boarding pass and then passport, cute! We really want the vacation to be duper affordable for our guests, have you got any rates for the resort? What is your guest list count? I know the wedding requirements for Mexico seem crazy...:( Thanks for your input! Muchly appreciated! Happy planning. Oh ya, where are you ordering your STDs and invites? I've found magnet street to have great prices!

                      K pounder, originally my date was october 26 2013 but i had to push it back. Ive been communicating with the wc but havent booked the march 2014 date bc the books don't open until april but i had my oct date confirmed with no problem. So i'm not worried about that. I am using a travel age t from apple vacations. No quotes yetbecuase again the flights prices aren't listed until ayear in advance so i have to wait until march. My guest list is at about 60 (very huge families). I'm confident it will be less than $1500 for a week per person. I actually am making my own save the dates and invites. Theres a bunch of great threads from other brides that made it super duper easy to make em yourself instead of spending money which could go to a other part of your wedding. As soon as i send them out, i will post pics for you to see if you like. Happy planning!
