    hi Finnayra! welcome to BDW. congratulations on your engagement! You'll find that BDW is a wealth of information and inspiration. have you chosen your venue/resort yet? are you working with a travel agent? if not, I highly recommend Wright Travel - they can make your planning much less stressful and overwhelming. There are links to contact Wright Travel in my signature if you would like to learn more about them. 

     

    Happy Planning!!

      Thanks so much for the kind words.

      I haven't chosen the venue/resort yet - but considering ME by Melia. I was already in communication with Royal Weddings since they were my first choice but our date was not available for beach ceremony - so had to start all over again. Tomorrow I have a conference call with the wedding planners from Celebracion Riviera Maya, hoping that goes well - since they're highly respected in the wedding business.

      Regarding a travel agent, we're working with Best Day (thanks for your recommendation though!). We have been in love with them since 2011, they're all about customer satisfaction and we couldn't be happier.

      How about you? How far are you into your wedding planning? I'm curious to know about your wedding! Congrats and keep in touch!

      Mayra

          no worries! Yes, our wedding was 5 months ago (SOB!). it was a total dream wedding in paradise. The planning of course had it's stressful moments - it is a wedding, regardless of the location. I still can't believe it's over sometimes. I have a planning thread if you'd like to read about all of the crazy details.

           

          I'm glad you have a trusted travel agent - they can make the whole process soooo much easier on you. I hope your search goes well!!!
