Newbie Engaged!

Wow! Thank you so much for all the advise. You all are proving already how much support someone can get with this forum. Such a fantastic idea. It helps take some stress away.

 

I know a couple of friends who used a travel agent that focuses on destination weddings and loved her so I think I will start there.

 

We think we know the date now.... May 14, 2014. Based on what I have been reading and hearing May is a month that is outside hurricane/rainy season, the expensive season and is overall a fairly consistent month and reasonably priced. Does this sound accurate?

 

Can't wait to learn more :)

If you are wanting a specific date in May (2015?- you wrote 2014 but im guessing that was a typo) I would sort out your wish list, work with your TA and book ASAP. May is one of the busiest months for weddings (for the reasons you mentioned) and many resorts may only do 1 or 2 weddings a day. Believe it or not, many may already be solidly booked for your date so the quicker you can select a resort the better.

@@kmk2016 is absolutely right! When we were booking for our wedding in Jamaica, we were told that April and May are the busiest months of the year for resort weddings. I would guess that Mexico is probably the same, and yes exactly for the reasons you said. I was quite surprised when I was looking for a trip earlier in the year just for a vacation that the rates for May are higher than I was expecting! Definitely try to get some details sorted as soon as you can. You may not be able to actually book a resort until you find one with your date open, or be prepared to be flexible with your date.

 

Good luck!

oh my! I definitely want it to be afforable for everyone that will be coming. This May thing makes me nervous. I do have a little bit of time... when I said 2014 I really meant 2016! :) silly typo!

 

How far in advance do resorts book up? We are flexible and would even consider other months but don't know if there are any other smart months... We feel silly planning this far in advance but we are such rookies with travelling that we want to get these basics covered.

 

I will update once I have talk to the travel agent!

definitely talk to a few travel agents.  I worked with several and then narrowed them down to see which travel agent could lock in the best price and the best group promos!!

Congrats !! It's all overwhelming in the beginning then once you have dates and check things off you start to feel better.

We booked a year in advance cause resorts didn't have 2015 prices out yet till then. So the resorts will let you know when they are booking weddings. First thing is finding a resort, what matter to us is the budget for our guests we wanted the most loved ones there as possible so TA helped with that. Then I did my own investigating and looked at wedding packages they offer so I knew that worked for us as well. This site is truly amazing and has everything.

 

Anyways it will all come together. As for 150 posts it's easy to get once you start in on the forums and talking with everyone.

 

Good luck and happy planning !!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
