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.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
