    Hello Ladies! I am new to this but excited to be a part of this wonderful site. I am getting married in May/June of 2014 and have no idea where to start! My fianc© and I are wanting a late afternoon sunset wedding on the beach..not sure where to go..I love love love Dreams Riviera in Cancun but want to explore my other options. Mexico is beautiful but I've heard awesome things about Hawaii and Dominican Republic. I am planning on having about 30 guests- definitely going to need some help! So excited and blessed! Congratulations to everyone and I wish you all happy planning!

      Congrats!!!! I just decided on my resort in Jamaica. My next steps are locking in the date and getting guest information. Since I am thinking about Nov 2014 or early 2015 I am just researching DIY stuff and reading reviews of guest leaving my resort. My prices are not available for the resort or flight as of yet so right now I am just planning every thing out!!!

            No much, I just decided on my resort. I am now thinking of a date so I can lock it in by middle of November. I already know what DIY invited I am using so right now I am trying to get my 150 post to get the template FREE~!

             

            I am now thinking about my wedding party and asking my FI to think of what he will wear in Jamaica. I am taking baby steps and trying to research as much b/c when I lock my date in I want my save the date to be ready and shipped out at least 2 weeks later. That is my plan anyway!!

             

            What have you already done? I hope I am not behind on task. Thinking of Nov 2014...

              Thinking about Nov 14 or Early 2015... I wanted Nov 2014 but I may need more then 12 months to plan!!! So my next date is March 2015. I doubt Nov 2014 will be do-able! We shall see...

                For some reason my phone won't let me quote but anyway Recy if you work quickly you can probably do Nov. If you are having guest I would book first then work on invites. Also if you don't have your dress that should probably be next as it takes awhile for them to be made....

                  Thanks!!!! Yeah, i plan to lock my date in early Nov 2013 and If I stay on top of planning I should be good with Nov 2014. I wanted November for the off season and cheaper prices.
