Dazed and confused

Recommended Posts

Taylor here.

 

I'm in the beginning of planning a destination wedding 'somewhere warm' in late 2009 or early/mid 2010. I'm in Northern Ontario and it's -32C today - I would really like to go somewhere, anywhere warm.

 

I unfortunately have a compulsion to 'over-research' my decisions and this tendency is leaving me rather overwhelmed. Jamaica, hawaii, mexico...ugh. The travel agents were most unhelpful unless I have a specific date and place in mind. So that's why I am here.

Welcome Taylor!

I did the same thing and "over-researched" and became so overwhelmed! For us we had to consider who was going and what we were actually looking for in the whole package so we finally picked Cuba. Things will get easier though and more fun once you choose a spot.

I am from Labrador and with the windchill here it is -42 today (and expected all week),so I totally know what you are saying about looking forward to going to a warm place!

Hi Taylor!

 

I guess one question that would help you is, what are your priorities? Do you want a place on the caribbean with blue water and powdery white sand? A place close to ruins? (Mayan area), do youy guests like fishing? (Cabo and Puerto Vallarta), attracted to any culture? (Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica) What kind of side activities do you see you and your guests doing while at your wedding location?

 

Welcome aboard and happy planning!

I would start with what you and youfr FI likes. Then take into consideration budget, your likenesses (beaches, water, activities, etc) and narrow down your search that way. Also , consider any language challenges you may have and if this would be a source of frustration with some of your elderly guests. Do what makes YOU most happy and the majority of your guests. Remember you cannot please everyone. Good luck to you

Hey Taylor

 

I'm also looking at end of '09 or early '10. Only -16 here!! I find that I am also 'over-researching' however I have found some great tips on this site!!!

 

I am not much of a traveler however i was recently in Cancun and MayanR a few months ago for business and loved it there. I'm definitely leaning towards Mexico!

 

Congratulations!
