Newbie… Destination Caribbean 2010

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

First the required stuff:

1. Name = Anne aka "Annabelle"

2. Wedding Date = Tentative. Late February / Early March 2010

3. Wedding Location = Tentative. Jamaica or Mexico

 

My fiancé and I got engaged Christmas Day 2008 and are planning a DW for next year. We will definitely be choosing somewhere in the Caribbean with economics and nice beaches as the main deciding points. Estimated guest count is 50-80 people… and no kids (teens are allowed though).

 

I'll be 28 in two-weeks and my fiancé (Tim) is 29. We're both engineers and live in Tampa, FL. I'm originally from Florida, but Tim is from the Chicago-land area. His family is huge and almost all live in IL... mine is pretty small and spread all across the US. We decided on a DW that way everyone had to travel, plus we've both always wanted to get married on the beach. We'll be doing two post-wedding receptions "back home" (Tampa, FL & Bourbonnais, IL) for those who can't make it. I'm thinking house party BBQs to save on costs.

 

As for our wedding style... we want a wedding that is simple and informal, yet elegant, and the reception should be more like a beach party (with plenty of refreshments) than a formal gathering. Neither of us care about the wedding cake... cupcakes work for me. :)

 

I look forward reading all the great advice this site has to offer.

That was a darn good introduction Anne! Welcome to the forum!!!

The nicest part about a destination wedding is being able to bring all of your family and friends together in a mutual place and just enjoy each others company! Good luck finding the perfect location and best of luck planning! :)

Congrats! Have you figured out where in Jamaica? I'm curious as to how soon someone needs to book during the high season to get the date/time/location they want.
