    So I've been hibernating a bit. I couldn't get my fiance to agree with anything, and honestly I think I was overwhelming both of us with the process.

    Well, we're going to Grand Bahia Principe Tulum next month for a much needed vacation. We've agreed it's a good chance to see some resorts. I'm thinking we will visit the Royalton, and Grand Sirenis, as well as, obviously Grand Bahia. 2/3 are very close to each other, but the Royalron is far - but close to the airport.

    And for fun here are some pictures of my favorite dress (so far).

    Enjoy your trip!!! Looking forward to your thoughts on the 3 resorts. Wedding planning is tough so this vacation is such a great idea. Have fun!

    Love that dress. Looks beautiful on you.

      Thanks, all. When DF suggested that we go away I pushed against the idea. I wanted to save the money for our wedding. He's going to Portland in the summer as well, so two vacations will add up. But he insisted, so who am I to argue. I think it will reignite the whole process and get things going. He has said "Let's just go to City Hall next week," about four or five times now. I might just take him up on that. Still want the symbolic wedding though.

      @JoannaBanana I think I tried that dress on! Or at least one a lot like it. It was in my top 3!

       

      The back is so stunning and your entire "backside" looks really great in it! I love the buttons down the back. I did end up with a backless one so I'm a little biased though :) I'm small in the bust so I loved the idea of showing off my back instead!

        So I think we've decided that we're only going to check out Grand Serinis and Gr Bahia Principe(s) while we're there.  It will be too far to visit Royalton, and I think I already know it's beautiful there.  31 days!

        @JoannaBanana I'm so jealous that your TA experience was hard to pick which one because they were all so great. I lost $400 because mine was the absolute worst and I had to start over from scratch with a new one. 

         

        We almost booked with the Royalton (and part of me still regrets not booking it). Its such an amazing and beautiful resort but I was nervous when it first opened up and when I was talking with the resort in January they didn't have any prices for anything yet so I felt too nervous to book with them thinking my wedding could potentially explode with expenses. We decided on the Grand Sirenis and I'm just so excited. I wish these next 9 months would just speed up!

          Hey!  So I'm leaving Saturday morning.  I'm just winding down my last night at work.  I'm going to do some running around and then some cleaning tomorrow.  I'll be there before you know it!  I'll let you all know how the two resorts were, and how the weather and everything was.  So excite!


          Oh, and one of my coworkers offered to do a courtesy engagement photo shoot for my fiancĂ© and I.  Ya.  My fiancĂ© doesn't want to do it.  He thinks engagement photos are cheesy.  It's okay, it's not really my style either.  But it would have been nice to have some good pictures together, and I thought it was so nice of my coworker to offer!
