Newbie looking for direction on how to begin planning her destination wedding

Recommended Posts

Hello!!

 

My name is Crystal and I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago. I got engaged in December and would like to plan a destination wedding somewhere tropical. I have been thinking Mexico because of the prices and the fact that it is close enough for family and friends to get there in 4 hours by plane.

 

I would like to get married in January of 2010. The reason for this is that it will be cold here in Chicago and many of my cousins who are in school will be on break.

 

I joined this forum with the hopes of getting some direction on how to begin planning a destination wedding. How do I select a resort that I have never been to? How do I get the best rates? Where do I begin!?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!!

 

Crystal

Hi Crystal...congrats and welcome! I've found this forum very helpful. What we did first was pick a destination. We were between Mexico and Jamaica and picked Jamaica because there are fewer requirements to getting married there. Then we settled on the brand of resort we wanted based on the activities we wanted to have available. We picked Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios. Of course I had my dress before we had all this decided! I then spent some time deciding on a photographer, and decided to fly one down rather than using the resort photographer...it actually fit better into the budget that way. Good luck with the planning...we are all happy to offer our advice.

    • 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.
