    Hi all,

    My name is Ali and I am planning to be married in the Spring of 2010 at a destination to be determined!

    We initially thought we would be married locally but soon changed our minds when looking at the costs involved and speaking with those who had spent so much time planning their special day only to find it gone within the blink of an eye. We loved the idea of having a 'family trip' of sorts with some good friends along as well. We were in Maui in October and loved it - we were thinking of doing a small wedding there with a reception locally but when we looked at the costs involved both for us and for our guests, we thought we would be better suited to doing our wedding at an all inclusive resort.

    Sounds simple but there are alot of different areas to choose from. We are also wanting our wedding to be adult-only which hasn't made us very popular but we are sticking to our guns on that one. We have heard both positives and negatives to Mexico, Dominican, Costa Rica, Jamaica, etc...

    I am looking forward to gaining some insight from other people's experiences and figuring some of this out through this wonderful website!!

      Please disregard this - I had posted earlier but for some reason didn't think it had gone up but now see that it did... oops, what a true newbie!

            Hi Ali!

            I think you made the right decision to bring your family and close friends to a DW. You get to spend a lot of time with them having fun around throughout your and their whole stay.

            I am sure you will find everything you need to know in this forum. And if you don't just ask the question and we will help.
            Welcome to the forum!

              Congratulations and welcome! It really is overwhelming at first and I believe the two hardest parts of planning a destination wedding are picking the destination and resort. There is tons of really good information on this forum. I t actually took my fiance and I two months to pick a destination and we are still unsure of a resort! Good Luck and happy planning!
