Is anyone else getting married on blind faith?

Recommended Posts

Neither of us has ever been to Jamaica so we're going on blind faith, our TA's opinion (which couldn't count for a whole lot since our resort didn't open until 1 month after we booked!), and trip advisor.

I'm not worried about it in the least. I think it will make the DW all the better because we'll just go with the flow instead of being wrapped up in planning.

 

Don't worry about it if a site visit isn't in your budget....I think this is the norm!

We're choosing between 2 locations. One in Jamaica that we have never visited (but plan to in jan of next year) and one in Vegas that we have visited and loved.

i thought you were gonna say it would be the first time you met EVER... woulnd't be the first with this internet dating

 

My advice is don't do it on blind faith. websites and venues and vendors can be misleading

 

a trip down can save you a lot of heartache, headaches, and money in the long run

 

IFFF you cant swing it. make sure you do lots and lots and lots of research and reading of reviews from brides and grooms on here who have had expeirece with those places

Although my FI and I have been to DR numerous times, I think those of you that are going on blind faith are brave. I think that's what makes it all the more exciting, it's almost like an adventure...yay!!!!

The best planning process for a Wedding includes:

- A site inspection: the first step in order to select a location is to know it! A site inspection is a visit to the areas, hotels and locations you are considering for the wedding. Having a look at first hand can help you make a good decision.

- A site planning:Once you have choosen the Location, you can have a site planning in order to have the tasting, meet the vendors and finalized the last details of the Wedding. This visit is recommended to be done around 3 months prior to the event.

 

But if you are considering a location where there are a lot of destination weddings, you can also rely on the the sources available online to make the selection such as your Hotel's Wedding Planners that can send you photos, information and you can also evaluate their performance during the process (you deserve a personalized service from day 1 in the Wedding Planning Process!!) and, specially, the reviews you can find here at DWF! You can check on "search" the name of the Hotels or locations you are looking for. Here you will find reviews, tips, and even photos of different Weddings!

 

Approximately 50% of the couples married at our Hotel came in Blind Faith, and I am glad to say that we always exceed their expectations! We have a team of experts in destination weddings that can make this process very easy and stresless (...even better than planning a wedding at your hometown as we take care of ALL the details!!!).

 

Good Luck in your planning process!

I had never seen our wedding site or the hotel we stayed at until we got there. I walked down the aisle seeing everything for the first time ... and having done it that way, I wouldn't do it any other way!

I'm going on blind faith. It would add an extra $4000 to our budget to travel beforehand for a preview. Reviews, and forums such as this one have been so helpful. It almost makes it more fun to see the resort for the first time with the guests.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
