    Hi everyone my name is Heidi and I am planning on getting married this. The Only thing I know is that I want it to be a destination wedding and in November not much else. I would really appreciate any suggestions as to where to do this with the least amount of hassle as I know, I know I am starting late in arranging this. Cost is also an issues as I want to try not to exclude anyone because of financing. The only place I have to exclude is Cuba because of relatives that we would like to invite. Our group will not be overly large and will contain all age groups. Thank-you for your time

      Whoa... This is a bit broad... I would say pick a country first and work from there. I've heard that Mexico is more expensive than other areas, but I have no idea because I never looked into anywhere else... I think November is also a more expensive time to travel, maybe someone else can confirm that.

          Well, I think you and your FI should sit down and try to at least narrow 3 places down to where you would like to get married. Once you have those locations, we can try to help with specific questions you may have. There are just so many beautiful locations in this world, that it's really a personal decision on where you feel is right for the both of you. Best of luck and congrats on your upcoming wedding

              I got married in November as well, and had the same concerns as you. I looked into the DR, b/c I heard it was cost-efficient and Puerto Rico and Cancun. My final decision was Isla Mujeres, about seven miles off of cancun. Finding this island was life luck.. it was perfect. Do you know how I found it? I literally typed in google, "small remote island off of _____ easy to get to by ferry." The google words worked for me, maybe they can work for you!

              And plane tickets to my Nov 1 wedding were pretty reasonable, average was 320$ USD from D.C. including taxes, roundtrip to cancun.

                      I agree narrowing it down together would probably be the best bet... !
