Cape Cod? Eastern Long Island? Newport?

Recommended Posts

Well, we had been thinking about Mexico or the Carribean, but given state of affairs, might stay closer to home (which is New York). We love New England, so thinking possible Cape Cod, which has a "destination" feel to it, in some regards. Or maybe eastern Long Island or anywhere coastal between NY and Boston. One of the reasons I wanted a destination wedding is to cut down on the details and planning (and cost!) which I just don't want to deal with. How can I get those benefits and still stay stateside?

 

Suggestions?

 

Thanks ladies!

I LOVE the Cape.. My MOH has a cottage up in Truro, and before the whole destination wedding, I always wanted to get married there. On Corn Hill, there is a deck that looks out over the sunset (it is basically on a cliff over the bay) and it is amazing.. I think that is a great idea!!! I reccomend Truro!!

Hi- I've been absent for quite a while but I've made my way back. :) Very long story short, we ended up looking at the Cape but wound up booking in Newport. We found a beautiful place on Newport Harbor. Not on the beach, but on the water. I've got tons of info on the Cape and Newport so if you have any specific questions, let me know.

Hi Again!

 

Truro looks beautiful... any suggestions on where to go there for ceremony (non-church) and reception? Any other places lower on the Cape (closer to mainland)?

 

Kate- I love Newport, and it is the perfect distance from New York and Boston (we have family in both). Can you post some more information on where you decided on going? I will private message you as well.

 

 

Thank you!

I would definitely consider Martha's Vineyard. Do you have a particular place to recommend there? I would also consider Natucket, and Block Island!

 

Thanks!

Yes when we used to go during the summer time, we would see gorgreous wedding in Edgartown (my 1st choice), and further out in West Tisbury or Gay Island. There are beautiful Lighthouses, the scenery and greenery, the beach--OMG it would be great! MV was a consideration for us but since we were both Jamaican we decided to go back home. I wish you well with your planning

The vineyards out in the Hamtpons are beautiful!

 

As for your other question - keeping the guest list down will keep the cost down. Unfortunately, the problem with at home weddings is more people want to go since the commitment to attend is not nearly as great as with a destination wedding. The number of attendees drive up the cost BIG TIME! If you can keep the numbers down, you'll keep the costs down too =0)

Hi Jennifer--

 

Yes, you are right. I went to a wedding at Raphael, one of the vineyards on Eastern L.I. this year. It was very pretty. But since my FI's cousin just did that, we don't want to copy-- you know what I mean? Maybe that's being juvenile! I just want a unique experience.

 

I was also thinking about the numbers game. If we go to an island or to Mexico, maybe 15 people will come. If we stay close to NY, we're looking at 100. Ugh! Tricky!

 

I am going to Secrets Maroma in Mexico with my honey in 2 weeks, maybe we will get inspired to return to Mexico next year for a wedding. :)

 

Thanks! And to the other ladies out there-- please keep East Coast ideas coming! I am finding your thoughts and ideas SO helpful, as I am sure will brides to come who want to plan for this region.

 

Thank you!

Terra

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
