    May 15, 2015 here! Congrats to you! Just curious what stage are you at? My FI and I just decided to start with hiring a WC and are scheduling some interviews this week. Also did you pick a destination yet?

    We have put a deposit down for our date at two resorts in Mexico. We will probably go with Now Jade instead of Dreams Riviera, mainly because the package includes 25 people vs 20 at DRC. Haven't made a final decision though. We have also decided on colors. We will pick our bridal party after people pay their deposits. We're doing it this way so no one feels pressured to go. If the people we have in mind can't go, we will only have a MOH and BM. What about you?

    Im not sure on resorts just yet. Im looking to do a private reception so im seeking different options. Im going to hire a WC because im driving myself and my FI crazy. We have 6 each in our wedding party that have made commitment to go. I think finding a resort is challenging. I want something giant with either an adults only section or all adults only and the few around are super expensive. Ive stayed at catalonia royal and its amazing just too small for us. We want the option to get lost. Where is the beach club youve mentioned? Are you using a TA or WC?

      If you're looking to get lost then the resorts I mentioned above wouldn't be ideal for you. They are located in Mexico...outside of Cancun. They aren't the smallest resorts but getting lost isn't an option either. You should check out the TAs associated with this site. They are awesome! In regards to hiring a WC, I have decided against that. I'm relying on the internet and honest reviews from other brides to guide me.

        I got engaged on July 18, 2012 (my 20th birthday) at the Brookfield Zoo Dolphin Show. I was completely surprised and now I could not be happier. 

         

        My fiance and I have been dating 5 years and we will get married on May 25, 2015 somewhere in the Cancun area.

         

        We have been looking at the Gran Caribe Real Resort so far. To us, it seems like a very pretty and romantic place to start our future. 

         

        I would love any opinions that any of you would like to share. My fiance and I are very open to different ideas.

         

        I look forward to hearing all of your plans and sharing mine with all of you!

         

        Congrats to us all!! 

         

         

        CONGRATS!!! I was originally a Nov 2014 bride but have decided to puch the date to 2015 sometime to give me a little more planning time.  So glad to see a 2015 post!!!! Excited!!! I am thinking March 2015 around St. Patrick's Day because GREEN is my FAVORITE color!!! :-)

          Happy Planning

           

          Congrats!!! I am looking at March 2015.  I have been researching Jamaica resorts for the last 4 months and I am positive I will go with Iberostar Rose Hall Suites for my wedding and Iberostar Rose Hall Grand for my honeymoon.

              Yes. I am having the ame problem. I want to give my guest at least 10 months to plan and pay for their travel. Hopefully with me moving my date the extra time will help.

                YES. I just decided on my resort after months of researching.

I haven't even decided on an actual date - just a tentative one: March 7, 2015! Fiance and I like it but aren't completely set on it yet. :(
