    This is my newbie post! My name is Maria and my fiance & I would like to get married this spring (09) somewhere in the Caribbean in the simplest way possible.

    Specifically, we would like to go somewhere warm and tropical, preferably and AI, where we can just relax for a week without any worries. We will likely not have any guests, maybe the parents, but that's not clear at the moment. Thus, we don't really need the things that most "wedding packages" offer, such as the cake or the champaign -- that's what the all-inclusive is for!

    Anyone has ideas on nice resorts (or pointers to previous threads discussing this issue) that feature free (or inexpensive) weddings for people like us, on a tight budget and very simple needs/wants?

    Thanks in advance!

            Congrats and welcome, Maria!

            I photographed a DW like that, and it was really a lot of fun! I'm sure that if you contact some venues and let them know what you want, that they would have something that would suit your needs, and that wouldn't be too pricey.

            Happy planning!

            Best wishes,

                    welcome maroa. there are tons of posts on wedding packages, hotels, etc. For free packages, try the RIU in Jamaica or Sunset Grande. Have you done any research so far??
