Where do I start?!?

Recommended Posts

Hawaii is awesome!!! So pretty. I ended up choosing Fiji as my location. Even though hardly anyone is coming, I wouldnt change it. But if having everyone show up, I wouldnt suggest somewhere that would cost a lot to get to, like the Pacific or Europe.

Depending on what you call spectacular -- I say, start doing some online research. If you want to stay stateside, look up some private villas in maybe California or Florida. I think a summer in Maine would be awesome. Mexico is nice. I think large resorts are good for large groups but if it was me having to get married in Mexico, I would pick some place very small and less tourist-y. I have a friend who got married in Columbia, there is Belize, Curacao and Aruba, or you can do a cruise line!

I started by looking at stuff that was important to me - like legalities... I wanted one stop shopping kinda wedding... then I went with the most exotic local...then I went with the resort that I had to worry least about planning ( just really have to show up)... and then I went with price... ( I know this is so evil but I had to pick a place where I could price some folks out... didnt want wedding crashers) After that, I talked to some DW TAs. There are some here on this forum. My TA pretty much work with each of my guest.

Im so excited for you! Congrats!!!

Hi Megan,

Welcome! If I were having an intimate wedding I would do it in Fuji or Bora Bora. It just can't get more beautiful than that. Is there any place that you and your Fiance have been to before that means something to you? Or is there a place that has a certain flare that means something to you? That helped us...we tried to think of places that we have had special times in so that we could share it with the people we love.

Also with your son, just take a red-eye and he will be fine!

We recently went to an intimate wedding in hawaii on Kona Island. It was PERFECT. Maybe look into the smaller less sought after islands and resorts and it can be more affordable.

this site is helpful. I'm sure you will find some ideas.

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum, good luck and happy planning.

You can find cheaper ways of dong a DW in Hawaii. We are getting married in Oahu and its not that expensive. It just takes lots of looking and lots of time.

    • 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
