    Congrats Holly! I am getting married in Nuevo Vallarta but there are several beautiful places to have a destination wedding. What I did was look at the price of flights that the bulk of my guests would be taking that way I could plan around affordability for my guests. Since I'm in Texas, Mexico was the place to go for me. We looked into Aruba, but my guests would have to spend a night in a northern airport just to make it to Aruba. My advice is to research that first. I also didn't want my guests paying $1200 for a flight to Belize (which was my first choice). Anyway, that's how I went about choosing. Happy planning!

      HI and Welcome!
      I was in the same boat! My suggestion is to take the time to browse the different locations on here... then google the resort and narrow it down that way! Ask questions and take your time on the front end! Everything comes together pretty quickly once you select the destination!
      Let me know if you have Q's! I am in MN and my cousin is going to be playing hockey for the Badgers this fall so I will be in madison quite a bit too!

                    Welcome Holly ! Congrats to the both of you ! If you don't have lots of time to plan I would suggest Cuba or Dominican Republic (DR has better food) the documents required are not over the top like lets say Mexico... I started looking up the requirements in the different countries, once you have a few narrowed down go to our local Travel Agent Store, they have the actual Travel Wedding catalogues that will give you lots of interesting info such as wedding package pricing etc on many wedding destinations.…

                    If you need help just write...

                    Cheers and good luck
