I'm so excited to finally do a planning thread! I keep up with a bunch of them and have learned a ton from you ladies. I can't believe we've been engaged for six months already!
We met in college through mutual friends. We were just friends for a while (I was actually constantly trying to get him to date friends of mine!) and finally started dating in December 2009. In our 5 years of dating we have done a ton of awesome stuff together, but my favorite so far has been getting into mud runs last year. We've done 3 so far (Warrior Dash, Savage Race, and Spartan Race) with plans to do more.
We went to a DW in the Dominican Republic and loved it, so we looked into it and it will potentially cost less for us and our guests including multiple days of events (our families and friends are spread out across the country so matter where we picked, at least half of our guests were going to have to travel). We put together a checklist and after about three weeks of back and forth, decided on Excellence Riviera Cancun.
We're getting married the day after our 6 year anniversary. My FFIL is a reverend and will be the officiant for the wedding (he'll do a legal ceremony before we depart)! So far we have 19 people with reserved rooms, but are expecting closer to 30. Our deadline w/ our travel agent isn't until September.
