I find the planning threads to be so helpful, so I thought I would start one of my own and will start at the beginning. We have all the big things taken care of but I'm going to continue to work on the details over the next few months.
My fiance surprised me with a proposal on Leap Year Day and we spent the first few weeks just enjoying our engagement. After a while, we decided a Destination Wedding would be the best choice for us because all of our family and friends are spread out all over the US. (We live in WV, went to college in OH, I grew up in NY, he grew up in 4 states). After deciding on Mexico due to the ease of travel and familiarity for most people, we started researching resorts. We knew we wanted a true reception and many resorts only offered a la carte reception options. I "attended" an online seminar through bestdestinationwedding.com and fell in love with the Now Resorts.
We decided on Now Sapphire because they had availability on the day we wanted. So we got in touch with Wright Travel Agency and sent out Save the Dates.
