    Hey everyone! This is my first time on here. I just got engaged about a month and a half ago (yay:)), and since I've been so busy finishing up school (6th yr pharmacy student) I'm just now gettin a chance to start the wedding process:) The good thing is, I do have some time, we're looking at June or July 2008. Definitely want a DW, but still undecided where. I am hoping I can get some ideas from you all on this site:) I'm open to ANY suggestions or advice that anyone has! I'm feeling very overwhelmed and clueless!
    Looking forward to learning a lot:) Thanks in advance:)!!

      Welcome!!

      Mexico is a great option for a wedding location. Plus, with this site a TON of the research is already done for you!

          Thanks! I'm looking for somewhere that's affordable, but I don't want to sacrifice a gorgeous location. Mexico is definitely at the top of my list; I was thinking it would be the most affordable for a DW going out of the country?? I just need some suggestions/somewhere to start....
          Thanks for your post:)!

            Those are the places that i've been hearing the most about so far. Any ideas which are the best deals? (ie; reasonably priced, good weather, nice resort)
            Thanks sooooo much:)

              PV is less expensive than cabo or cancun...DR is inexpensive but airfare can get expensive...where are you and most of your guests coming from?

                I heard that Cabo can be more expensive...the Dreams resort just looked so beautiful (altho I don't really know what other good resorts are there). I also would like a place/resort where there are plenty of activities and things for us and our guests (not having a large grp tho) to do. I heard DR is beautiful, just thought it was expensive... Mostly everyone would be coming from Ohio. What about Belize? Have heard a little about that too.

                belize can get expensive with airfare...my good friend got married there and they loved staying at their resort BUT were always a little nervous when they were off the resort...and these people are seasoned travellers....like she was a volunteer nurse in india so she doesnt scare easily...also hubbies brother honeymooned there and they thought it was beautiful but they said some areas were not that safe so...if you decide you just want to stay on the resort it should be fine...
