    Just introducing myself! My name is Karen and I'm from Boston! Go Pats!!!!
    I'm 34, my FI is 30 and we just got engaged a month ago, and we just decided yesterday that we are going to have a destination wedding. This is a second wedding for me, but a first for my FI! The planning and the $$$$ just started to get ridiculous, so we figured if we're going to spend some $$$ we might as well have the vacation of a lifetime and a wedding we will never forget instead of a small cookie cutter wedding in a hotel ballroom!! We haven't quite decided on a location. Maybe Italy? Australia? (may be too long of a flight?) Turks and Caicos? I'd love to hear from all of you! We're looking for glamorous and luxurious but still classic and elegant. But something a little different. Looking forward to the journey with everyone!

              Hi Karen,

              Congrats and welcome!

              While I think Turks and Caicos would be a great choice, I would opt for either Italy or Australia. Italy is my favorite country in Europe. I love the Italian people, architecture, food, wine, etc. I think having your wedding anywhere in Italy would make for a spectacular wedding! My suggestion, though, would be to have it somewhere in Tuscany or Umbria. (Or the Amalfi coast). Australia would also be a wonderful place for your wedding. I used to live there, and really loved my time there! The people there are really super nice and down to earth. And, it's also a really beautiful country with a lot of great venues for weddings.

              Have fun planning!

              Best wishes,
