Just the 2 of you DW - who's done it?
Posted 17 April 2008 - 06:41 PM
His dad lives in Montana and is fairly unwilling to leave. He has allot of animals and would have a difficult time finding caretakers where he is. He offered to host the wedding there...but he lives in the middle of nowhere (and I mean 45 min from a supermarket nowhere). Getting married there is very unappealing to me.
His mom is recently widowed and is having large financial problems. Joel's step-dad left her a trust and the house in his will. She recently found out that the person running the trust is embezzling from her. She now has to give her entire paychecks to a lawyer to pay for the legal bills in trying to get her money from the estate. It's a big mess and she is about to lose it with stress. Joel hasn't even told her about the Mexico because he knows it's too much for her to even think about going.
So we just decided to do the "just the 2 of us" weddingmoon. Who else here has gone that route, or is dong this? I'd love to hear from you about your experiences. I've been to Sandals in MoBay and know Sandals do them all the time. Who else does this type? Now that we aren't bringing anyone we can look outside of Mexico. I'd love to hear suggestions, advice, etc. I tried searching the forums, but couldn't figure out what terms to use.

I am a little sad to not be doing things like DIY invites, BM dresses, etc. However I'm sure the stress level will be so much less without all that stuff.
I guess my next step is to find a good TA and figure out where to go.

One of my favorite weddings ever was a two person wedding in Belize. They were so relaxed and had such a fabulous day. They spent the morning out on a half day snorkeling trip - came back - got ready - had a beautiful ceremony followed by a candle light dinner for two out on the beach. It was so intimate and special. So so sweet.
Go for it - I think you will have a blast.
The options are endless and you can go to some off the beaten path places that don't work for those with guests...I'm thinking...Belize, Jost Van Dyke, ahhhh....Jost Van Dyke would be incredible!
