Bahama-mama wedding

Recommended Posts

Welcome Claudia!

 

I went to a really lovely wedding in the Bahamas last year for one of my childhood friends. Everyone had the best time and it was gorgeous!

 

She got married here in Hope Town:

 

Hopetown Bahamas | Abaco Elbow Cay Hope Town Bahamas

 

At this location: Hope Town Harbour Lodge, Elbow Cay, Bahamas

 

We stayed here: Hope Town Hideaways

 

Let me know if I can find out any info for you!

Hello all,

 

I just joined yesterday, haven't even posted my "newbie" note yet, but was reading this and figured I would offer up my opinion as well regarding destinationweddings.com. I paid them a few months ago and recently requested my money back. I knew I wanted an all-inclusive, family friendly resort that was tropical. Not a big condo building, but an actual tropical resort. My DW lady told me to do some research and let her know what I found and then she would check it out. She had no opinions to offer me. I really wasn't happy with it, so I thought I was expecting too much at first and let it go, but eventually I realized that she is supposed to be a TRAVEL AGENT that specializes in Destination Weddings! Why doesn't she know this stuff? So I asked for me money back, I haven't heard back from her yet. It would be a great idea for a company, if it worked, and I am sure it does for some people, but I was extremely unhappy with my dealings.

 

Sorry for such a long post! I am off to post my "newbie note" now.

Carly

Carly thank you for the added account that you provided on DW planners. I am so so so relieved now that I decided to wait another day before signing up and obviously now am not going to go that route at all. I've been finding some great feedback/accounts/advice on these forums and am hoping to decide on a destination and resort by this weekend w/my fiance. We're gonna sit and just weed through these forums for more information (as well as a couple destination wedding magazines I picked up at Borders yesterday) and make some decisions. I'm realizing though that some of the brides to be on these boards are planning so much more in advance than we are so that makes me a pinch nervous but I'm still hoping all will fall into place with some time and serious thought.

 

Congratulations on your engagement!

 

Thanks again to all of you for the warm welcome and the advice that's been volunteered up so far. Every little bit helps at this overwhelming stage of the planning.smile43.gif
