Well, I'm a photographer, so in terms of the best beach to photograph, I believe Lover's beach on the Pacific side (not suitable for swiming) is got to be second to none in the Americas, truly a beautiful spot with monumental rocks as a backdop, specially at sundown, the tones are just spectacular and the ocean roars and splashes are just fascinating!

jamy, i have to post some photos for you when i get home tonight, but the island of capri (pronounced cop-ree in italian, people there get so offended if you call it capri as in how youd say capri pants haha) is amazing. different parts of the island have different kinds of beach landscapes. there was this one gorgeous beach i went to that was all rocks and no sand, but the rocks were soft and safe to walk on. will post in a couple hours!!

Ooh thanks Maura! My mom used to go there often and it's like her favorite place on earth. That's where all the grottos are, right? I would love to see your pictures, hers aren't recent.

After seeing all these pix I need to try some new tropical destinations! But here is one of our favorite beaches on Hawaii....Lanikai Beach on Oahu. Oahu is definitely more than just a city on an island and these pictures sure show that. Not on a resort, but about 30mins from Waikiki and close to lots of beach house rentals. Nice snorkeling, soft sand, clear water :) They were taken a couple of days after the wedding, hence me trying to get a shot of my wedding ring in there..lol

Hi girls! I'm a true beach worshipper so this is my kinda thread!!! I love hearing about new places :)

 

In terms of softness & pure white color of sand, and the blue-ness & clarity of the water, in my mind nothing beats the Carribean, Turks & Caicos and Cayman Islands in particular. If you like smaller-sized boutique hotels, the Rgent Palms in Turks & Caicos is amazing! We looked in to having our wedding there but they get booked up about 2 years in advance!!!

ok here's the rock beach... i have to go thru my actual photo albums to scan some of the ones from capri, because not all my photos from that trip are digital. jamy, if you send me your email, i will make a picasa album of all my capri photos for you and then invite you to view. capri is my fave place on earth also. well all of italy, but esp. capri! yes, thats where all the grottos are. i actually swam into the famous blue grotto --- which is both highly illegal, and highly dangerous. but i was 22 and figured i may never return to that spot, so i better do it while i was there! i have some really amazing photos from that trip that i'm happy to share. this one can tide you over until i get the others scanned!

I think we found the beach for us! Karen found a resort this morning called The Lambert Beach Resort in the British Virgin Islands. The photo below is the beach there. I guess the whole beach along the bay is known as Lambert Beach.

Wonder if we get a discount?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
