    My name is Bridget and I guess I'm technically a "newbie" though I've been lurking on this forum for about a week. I've been researching for a place to have my destination wedding for 3 weeks and it's been incredibly frustrating. It seems like the only way that it is affordable is if you just elope, but I'm wanting a wedding with guests, a reception and dancing! My first choice is the Virgin Islands (due to the beauty & simplicity of getting married there), but I've had absolutely no luck finding a place within my price range (under $10,000 for the whole thing--ceremony, reception, decor, dj, etc.). Any advice would be so greatly appreciated!!!! So, in conclusion, I can't list my wedding location & date yet because I have no idea. :)

      Welcome Brigit. I found it hard to find a place too. We finally decided on Puerto Vallarta but even that we're spending about $15,000 for 40 people. We were hoping for under $10,000 too. Good luck.

              Hi and welcome! The USVI are beautiful, but they are really expensive... for almost anything, food, taxis... we are getting married in Riviera Maya Mexico and it seems to be more affordable for the AI's. Good luck planning!!!

                      Welcome and happy planning! Not sure how many people your having but you might want to look into Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We are having ours there and will be under $10,000-they have many options!
