Hey... and HEEEELLLLPPPP!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My name is Michelle and I recently got engaged to my wonderful boyfriend of 3.5 years, Johnny. We already knew we wanted a destination wedding... so that part was easy. We plan to get married in April, June, or July 2009. BUT - the reason my screen name is Lost N Stressed, is because I am just that. I have no idea where to plan our wedding!!! I have looked from Montana (mountain lake resort) to the Caribbean (not Mexico). WE keep thinking all-inclusive, but now that I look into it I am not so sure...

 

I just can't decide!! What makes it even more difficult is that we are on a limited budget. So, any help or pointers would be GREATLY appreciated.

 

(I have researched: Grand Lido in Jamacia, Sandals, Montana Mountain Logde)

Congrats and welcome to the forum!

I would first start out with where you want to have it and then pick which place gives you more of what you want and go from there. But there is a lot of information on here to help you out.

Happy Planning!!!

Congrats and welcome to the forum! I think from past vacation experience, and the experience of friends, the AI option sometimes seems more afordable for guests. There are many people on here who know a lot about Sandals, and some resorts give the wedding for free I believe... do some searching here and you will not be disappointed!

I agree with Angel... pick a country or state you want to get married in and then research all over that area than at least you will get an idea of whats out there.

 

In the mean time...Congrats on your engagement. Let the fun begin!

Congrats and welcome to the forum!

 

When my FI and I first started planning we were all over the map too. We sat down and wrote the top 5 things that we envisioned for our wedding and picked our location based on the top 5 list. There is something out there for every budget so just keep digging!

 

Good luck!

I got married this past July and we also wanted a destination wedding. We wanted something that would be under $2000 for each of our guests but also give us a really nice wedding. I booked Sun Village in Puerta Plata in the Dominican Republic. I picked their middle package and had 40 people. The total cost of the wedding was $3500 + $35/head. I flew in my photographer and I recommend that you do as well. But the wedding was beautiful. If you want more info please feel free to private message me and I'll send you all the details.

Welcome! Try not to get too stressed.

What i recommend is sitting down and writing a list of EVERYTHING that is important to you.

*Budget

*Beach?

*All-Inclusive

*Kids allowed?

*Large resort?

*Short airplane ride?

 

etc.

 

All of these things combined will help you choose which place is truly the best for you and your fiance.

 

Best wishes!!

I was in the same boat, where in the world do we want to get married? It ended up being making a list of top 5 as Chanta said, and narrowing it down. We ended up nit picking, flight prices, how many people have already been there from our fam, weather, color of the ocean, will my hair friz?, etc.

Good luck and congrats!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
