    I am going up to the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm area at the end of the month, to pick up supplies for my florist here in Key West. I will be sure to keep my eyes peeled and my ears open and see what good information about that area I can find out through some of my contacts.

        are YOU sold on the idea of a destination wedding? is your mom? if she isn't (and it doesn't sound like she is, with her comment about how it will cost as much as a NYC wedding), you need to explain to her all the reasons you are dreaming of being married away.

        next question: why florida? are you trying to stay within the U.S.? if part of the reason is to avoid passports, consider the U.S. virgin islands ... they are beautiful!

        many, if not most of us are going into this without ever seeing our locations in person (i have never even been to mexico, let alone my resort)! you don't have to take two trips to key west to plan! what you need is a ton of research and a good wedding planner. (and this site!)

        regarding costs, the main thing that makes a destination wedding cheaper than one at home is the smaller guest count! aside from that, the many tiny details that you would have stressed over at home, that would have had to have been the *perfect* thing, tend to not matter as much. there are far fewer "rules" involved. for instance, in paradise, will anyone notice or care if there are no centerpieces, or favors? these are all things to consider. i'm not even choosing my flowers or cake until get there. ahhhh ... stressfree!

        no matter what you choose to do, people will have negative things to say. family & friends will disappoint you. but if you keep true to yourself you will be happy in the end.

          Exciting news....I think we found a place! I will start a new thread in the FL section about it. In the end I wanted to compromise, and am glad that I think I have a place that matches my internal fantasy with the logistics of reality!!

          Thank you everyone for your support... I love this board!
