    Hi everyone, I have just got engaged, and was excited to find this board! My fiance and I have decided on doing a destination wedding, and we just have to work out the logistics. We haven't chosen a destination yet, but are thinking of either Costa Rica, Hawaii or maybe even Europe. If anyone has any advice to share, I would really appreciate it!

          Congrats on your engagement!! I was also looking at Europe when we first started (and there is one bride on the site getting married in Greece), but since we choose a January wedding, we decided it wasn't hot enough for us there, so now we are looking at CR and Mexico (MR). I have since learned, on this site, that if travelling to Costa Rica from Canada there are restrictions on the flights. Very difficult to get a flight from Canada from like April to Oct. So keep that in mind. Where abouts are you from in Canada (I'm in Ottawa) Good luck and let us know all updates on the planning.
