    Hi Everyone, I'm Jen :) My fiancee and I got engaged over Thanksgiving weekend and have just recently decided on a destination wedding. We are thinking about February 2008, but other than that have made NO decisions.... We need lots of advice :) I can't wait to hear what everyone has to say.

      Welcome and congrats Jen! You won't regret your decision to have a DW, no matter what location you decide. Have you narrowed it down to any countries?

          Welcome, Jen - good work on finding this forum, I think that was the best move I made in planning my destination wedding! Any ideas on where you'd like to get married yet? Somewhere in the US, Mexico, Jamaica, ... the list goes on and on! Let us know what you're thinking, and we can offer some help.

                Welcome Jen and congratulations on your engagement! There are a lot of nice places to have a destination wedding so it really will come down to preference. Start looking at different resorts in different countries and then decide which country you like. Once you choose that, we should be able to help you narrow down resorts in the area. Some things to think about:

                1. Is traveling far a factor in your decision?
                2. Do you want to have it in a country you have visited before or are you willing to try something new?
                3. Is cutting down costs a huge factor in your decision?

                Some great places to start looking are Mexico, Dominican Republic, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Aruba. Good luck with the planning and let us know how we can help!
