Since we announced to our friends and family we had decided on a destination wedding we have gotten so much flack. In fact between our family and friend and the lack of assistance from the WC, the whole wedding thing just isn't what I want any more. It has been so stressful trying to make every one happy and attmpting to plan the wedding. It feels like the whole thing is for every one else now, not about my FI and me.
So we are really wanting to elope. I still want my special wedding day with the whole dress and ceremony and cake thing, but I want it to be all about us. I think I want to dump everything I have started and pick a whole new place. So I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!
I want to go somewhere tropical to an all inclusive resort that has an amazing beach and lush gardens and updated luxurious rooms. I want to be able to relax but if I want to do an activity or excursion I can. I want to be able to have my wedding ceremony at the resort. I want something simple but something I will remember for the rest of my life. I would like to have private ceremony on the beach and then have a private candel light dinner and cake with my husband. Is that too much to ask? So if you know any place that would accomidate us please let me know!
We talked about planning a wedding for four months and neither of us were 'into it', and since we had booked a cruise before we started the wedding talk - we decided "why not take advantage of the cruise and just get married there". It's a lot less stressful and you can make the whole trip just about ya'll.

I felt just like you a few months ago when we started this process. Jason and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in August. I am a people pleaser by nature, I wanted all of my family to be there and have this great time. However, due to the high price of fuel some of my family can't make it. It was hard for us, we started to get some flack and negative feedback and I started to doubt our choice. We have stuck with it and things are much better! We have 30 people coming to our wedding & possibly a few more. I guess my advice is to think about what you both really want... if you want to go with the 2 of you then do it. I know Dreams has packages for that. If you want to have some family and friends then wait it out... it really does get better. I know everyone has said it, but remember this is your day... Hang in there:)

I would definitely recommend talking to Jennifer if you're thinking about Sandals. She knows her stuff. I have done a good amount of research on the island, so I would be more than happy to share what I know.
One last thing...do whatever you want to do. Don't let others influence you. Weddings have a funny way of making people crazy...and I'm not just talking about the bride and groom.

I do know how frustrating it can be about the lack of communication from WC's. I found the resort I wanted and now I can't get the WC to email me back about what dates are available! I want to book so I can start on all the other details.

After much more discussion between us, my FI confided in me that having a wedding that all his family and friends can attend is important to him. Plus his mom freaked out when I told her we were going to elope, and I think that was what prompted him to speak up. We are now getting more positive encouragement from our friends and family and people are beginning to take more of an interest in our day.
